Hotel at a Glance: Gateway Inn

Located 1 mile from the western entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, the Gateway Inn occupies a tranquil spot in Colorado’s high-country wilderness. The inn is a true family-run business—owners Tom and Debi designed and built the wooden lodge in 1999. With Rocky Mountain National Park surrounding the inn on three sides, it’s easy to connect with the great outdoors during your visit.

  • Handmade log furniture can be found in each individually decorated guest room.
  • Snuggle up: Select rooms come with cozy fireplaces.
  • Go snowmobiling: Snowmobiling is permitted on many city streets in Grand Lake, and Rocky Mountain National Park contains hundreds of miles of wilderness trails.
  • When it’s warm outside, you can go hiking, biking, fishing, or golfing.
  • Watch the sun set over nearby Shadow Mountain Lake from the inn’s back porch.
  • ** Extra perks**: ask about discounted all-you-can-it breakfast and massage services.
  • Visit the onsite restaurant serving breakfast and dinner. Call (970) 627-5080 for reservations and ask about the discounted all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet.

Grand Lake, Colorado: Western Gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park

Nestled beneath snowcapped peaks, the town of Grand Lake is known as the western gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. The charming village, dotted with quaint cabins and summer homes, sits adjacent to Trail Ridge Road, a 43-mile route that winds through the park, providing glimpses of mountain wildlife and dazzling views that stretch to Wyoming.

Grand Lake was named after the largest natural body of water in Colorado. Here you can angle for brown trout and mackinaw, or take to the waters on a pontoon boat. Nearby, Grand Lake’s historical boardwalk evokes the Old West with rustic saloons, art galleries, and horse-drawn taxicabs.

The area is ideal for ice-fishing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and other winter activities. Nicknamed the Snowmobile Capital of Colorado, Grand Lake is one of the few towns anywhere that allows snowmobiles on city streets, even leaving the streets snow packed to accommodate the popular winter vehicles.
