Group Experiences at Shadowcliff

Shadowcliff is an eco-friendly 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 family camp, tai chi, yoga, and dance retreats to writing, hiking, educational, and health and renewal events. Private events range from strategic planning and organizational retreats to reunions of all kinds, to weddings. 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 is a good fit at Shadowcliff!

SEE WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
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.
