About Western Riviera Lakeside Lodging & Events
Nestled at the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, the peaceful village of Grand Lake and Western Riviera Lakeside Events provide a picturesque backdrop for a Colorado mountain destination wedding, or any gathering year round. Each season is unique in its beauty and offerings for any celebration or event.
You can do it all at Western Riviera where one easy phone call (970-627-3580) or email (email@example.com) leads you to our team of professionals who are ready to assist you with your catering, lodging, event space and planning needs. Chris French of Wild Horse Catering, our exclusive onsite caterer, is available to schedule a site tour, provide catering information and help you plan the perfect menu for your special day. You may begin your planning by viewing their website at www.wildhorsecatering.com/weddings.htm.
Our finely finished 2,000 sq. ft. interior space accommodates up to 122 guests, and includes a great room, bar and restrooms. The great room and 1,000 sq. ft. outdoor deck space are perfect for casual or formal events, boasting lake views throughout both the great room and deck! Your guests will be mesmerized by the awe-inspiring mountain vistas reflecting on Grand Lake while watching boats and people along the waterfront.
Spring is the season of renewal and awakening when you may experience the first sightings of new offspring - moose, deer, elk and black bears - and welcome the hummingbirds back to their nesting grounds. Once again the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre, Chili Cook-off, hiking trails and activities on the lake begin to lure people to the mountains.
Summer is our high season when our lake and town are at its busiest - the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre is in full swing, fireworks explode over the lake on the 4th of July, antique wooden boats tie up to the docks, Bingo is being played in the park, the beach area is filled with families and friends, and of course, our annual Buffalo BBQ Weekend is back with live music, parade and good old fashion fun!
Fall is amazing in colors, sights and sounds. The quaking of the bright golden Aspen leaves against the crisp blue Colorado sky and the bugling of the elk truly is spectacular! Hikers, kayakers, canoers, bikers, golfers and fly-fishers enjoy the beauty of the season, and our Fall Festival before the snow begins to fly.
As the snow begins to fall, Grand Lake becomes a winter wonderland. The wildlife heads for lower elevations, the frozen lakes welcome back the ice fishers, and the skating rink and trails are groomed for skaters, snowshoers, cross-country skiers and snowmobilers.
