Things to do

Sightseeing near Grand Lake vacation homes

It’s not just the views from your Grand Lake vacation rentals that will wow you. There’s some fascinating history too. The Kauffman House Museum was originally a log-built hotel raised up by a 19th-century fur trapper. Here, you can dip into true stories of the Old West. To try your hand at being a rancher, head to the Winding River Resort Stables and jump in the saddle. There’s even a petting zoo for those with younger children. Or why not just hang loose and stroll the lakeside boardwalk, browsing for bargains in its old-time stores?


Activities near Grand Lake getaway cabins

As you might expect, it’s all about the lake here. And at 8,000-feet above sea level, with snow-capped mountains shimmering on its surface, Grand Lake is a unique place for a wide variety of water-based activities. Try your hand at canoeing, waterskiing, sailing, or fishing in the summer. Kids will love the paddleboats and the sheltered sandy coves. Then, when the cooler climes of winter roll in, it’s time to pop up the ice-fishing shack, or to fire up the snowmobile and carve a track across one of America’s highest lakes.


Local weather for your trip to Grand Lake vacation rentals

Packing a raincoat is always a good idea for those Grand Lake vacation rentals—this mountain resort town can be washed with bright sunshine or smolder magnificently beneath rainclouds. And that’s just on one summer’s day. The weather is wonderful for mountain hikes in late August and September. In the winter, the Rocky Mountain Park closes for the season, usually until April/May, but Grand Lake still makes a beautiful spot to visit during those snowy months. And for winter sports enthusiasts, the white rush of Winter Park is just an hour’s drive southward.
