We have recently doubled our space to add more rockers and wicker chairs, and a chance to exchange brilliant and/or cheerful ideas!

We are located on the boardwalk of Grand Lake at 928 Grand Ave. near the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park.

We offer:

  • Many new, acclaimed books (new & used, adventure, Colorado, children’s, book club)
  • Gourmet foods
  • 2,500-piece puzzles (and fewer pieces for the less brave)
  • Hand-made jewelry
  • Toys and other temptations

Call us at 970-627-8166 to confirm our winter hours and visit us today!
