Grand Lake Fees and Accommodations

We’ll stay at Shadowcliff Mountain Sanctuary, an eco-friendly, non-profit retreat center serving the community for 40 years.

From the Shadowcliff website:

“Located in Grand Lake, Colorado, our non-profit lodge and retreat center provides welcoming accommodations where connection to people, place, and contemplation come naturally. We offer a variety of European-style rooms for guests all with stunning lake and/or mountain views. Our distinctly unique feel has been described as reminiscent of summer camp, joyfully warm, and peacefully rustic.”

We’ll be fed by the Compassionate Kitchen, focusing on local and organic when possible:

Blessed to be within 200 miles of many wonderful farms both along the Front Range and on the Western Slope of Colorado, our Compassionate Kitchen is able to source seasonal, local, and organic veggies, meat, fruit, dairy, honey, and staples such as flour, most of the time.”
