Fodor's Review

This handsome lodgepole-pine structure on the Tonahutu River dates to 1915, and a stay here will give you a dose of history and put you near nature. The seven lodge rooms—each with ceiling fan—are done in the Rocky Mountain rustic style with a mix of antique furnishings such as claw-foot tubs and carved-hardwood beds. The innkeepers also rent condos for large groups or families. The delightful Rapids Restaurant ($$$–$$$$) is Grand Lake's most romantic for fine dining,

with stained glass and timber beams, but some readers report spotty service. Select a drink from the excellent wine list and enjoy it creekside before dinner. The specialty is Rapids' tournedo—an 8-ounce filet mignon with artichokes and béarnaise sauce.
