Summer Mountain Escape from the Heat in KC
Submitted: August 2, 2011
Stayed: July 2011
My and 2 other families spent the week at the Mustang Lodge and had a fabulous time. We had every ammenity needed and the kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and the necessities needed for cooking. The home was very comfortable for the 12 of us. We grilled out each night and dined on the deck that offered beautiful scenery. Each morning we had our coffee on the front porched and even watched a bull moose dine on aspen leaves about 10 feet from us! The walk to Columbine Lake was scenic (spotted 2 Moose on our way) and the lake itself was just gorgeous. The house was very close to town so we enjoyed shopping, kayaking and dining in Grand Lake Village. Winding River Ranch was within walking distance to the home, and the kids swam in the indoor pool and we went on a lovely horseback/trail ride there. I highly recommend this option over Sombrero Stables in town. The owner, Elaine is a wonderful hostess and the horses are amazing for first-time or experiencedriders. Jeff, our trail guide, was amazing and helpful. Please check it out. We were so sad to leave Mustang Lodge and Grand Lake, and can't wait to come back again next summer! The Mustang Lodge is a very nice place to stay - we all felt like we got much more than what we paid for with regard to space, kitchen ammenities, location, scenery, relaxation, etc.

Owner's Response: We hear this similar story from many guests. Lots of moose sighting this summer because of all the moisture from the great snow melt. We are happy to share our creation.
