The Grand Lake Lodge has been owned and operated by four generations of the James family, since 1953. All of our accommodations at the Grand Lake Lodge are in the form of cabins situated behind the main lodge (the main lodge has no rooms). These are the original cabins built by Roe Emery in 1920. Using the native lodge pole pines, he constructed the cabins for summer visitors arriving from back East.
