Shadowcliff Opens for the Season on Memorial Day. Now Taking Reservations!

Welcome to Shadowcliff!

A mountain sanctuary, we believe in healing, growth, interconnection, community, and affordability.

Shadowcliff Mountain Lodge is an educational non-profit lodge and retreat center nestled on the western side of Rocky Mountain National Park.


As a 501c3 Nonprofit Lodge & Retreat Center, Shadowcliff Mountain Lodge is supported by generous contributions from those in our community that align with our mission to “hold space for individual and collective transformation.” Now, more than ever, we are asking for your support so we may continue to live the values of healing, growth, interconnection, community, and affordability. Thank you.

Message regarding COVID-19 to our Shadowcliff Family: 

We are hoping that you and your family are safe and healthy. Although we will not be opening our doors in the traditional way this season, we have many new virtual programming options that will encourage you to connect with us and the larger Shadowcliff community! Also, it is our hope to have our three cabins available for booking later this season! Stay tuned!

Group Experiences at Shadowcliff

Shadowcliff is a mountain sanctuary nestled in the heart of the Rockies and the foothills of Grand Lake, Colorado. We invite you to come experience a magical place full of energy and life, and to learn, reflect, renew, share, and reconnect.

Every season, from Memorial Day to late September, we open our doors to groups of all kinds. From private groups to those with programming available to the general public, we partner with a wide variety of people and organizations. Groups with open programming include writing, hiking, educational, and health and renewal events. Private events range from strategic planning and organizational retreats to family gatherings of all kinds. We are also happy to work with anyone looking to host a single day event. Really, any group looking for a connected, community focused location in a rustic mountain sanctuary is a good fit at Shadowcliff!

Shadow Cliff is a one of a kind gem in Grand Lake. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I stayed in the dorm room which was clean and plenty of room for my stuff. The main lodge is very welcoming with majestic views over the town and lake below. There is a well appointed kitchen for doing your own cooking.
