Located in Grand Lake, Colorado, our non-profit lodge and retreat center provides rustic, welcoming accommodations where connection to people, place, and contemplation come naturally. We offer a variety of European-style rooms for guests 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 offer comfortable, relaxing private guest rooms in our Rempel and Cliffside Lodges with shared gender-specific bathrooms and private showers. Within our Rempel Lodge, we have small men’s and women’s hostels, with 6 and 4 beds respectively. Shadowcliff also offers three wonderful cabins, each with their own character.

Shadowcliff is open from Memorial Day to the end of September. Please note – smoking is not allowed anywhere on Shadowcliff property, and pets are not permitted.
