Grand Lake is the state's largest natural body of water. It would make sense, then, that our Grand Lake vacation rentals offer guests a home-away-from-home in a friendly, down-to-earth lake town rich in culture and activity. These Colorado vacation rentals make for an amazing lakeside, riverside, or mountainside getaway just a short drive from the western edge of Rocky Mountain National Park.
Where is Grand Lake, Colorado?
Located at 8,369 feet above sea level at the headwaters of the Colorado River, and rimmed by the Continental Divide and the western forests of Rocky Mountain National Park, our Grand Lake vacation rentals are a gorgeous drive of just over 60 miles from I-70, and 100 miles from Denver.
Things to Do in Grand Lake, Colorado
Our Grand Lake vacation rentals are not just for aquatic recreation, although there's sure to be plenty of that. Home to the world's highest-registered yacht club, the locals of Grand Lake know a thing or two about boats. Canoe or kayak, stand-up paddle board or fish - the lake is the town's playground, particularly in the warm months.
Along the western shore of the lake is the historic boardwalk, where frontier-style architecture takes guests back to the Old West. The boardwalk is lined with more than 60 dining, shopping, and art-viewing options, nearly all locally owned and managed. At night, visit bars and outdoor venues for live music. Buy tickets to the renowned Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre, or play bingo in Town Park.
For those looking for a bit of wintertime fun, Winter Park is just 36 miles south, Keystone is 88 miles away, and Eldora Mountain Resort in Nederland is 89 miles away. Grand Lake is also known for being the Snowmobiling Capital of Colorado, with over 300 trails, half of which are groomed.
Warm months means hiking, biking, ATV trips, bird-watching, and wildlife viewing. Take a hike to the Shadow Mountain Fire Lookout, offering 360-degree views, or to Cascade Falls, where wildflowers burst into color every summer. For a quieter experience on the water, visit Monarch Lake, a peaceful respite for non-motorized aquatic activities. Just to the northeast, Rocky Mountain National Park is teeming with wildlife, including the Colorado Moose, big horn sheep, and elk. Take your camera - you'll want it!
Our Grand Lake vacation rentals are a place for guests to be completely present, fueled by fresh air and gorgeous views!
