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.
