Comments Our family, dog and all, were so pleased with our low key family get away. Our family introduced us to this place (they have vacationed on this lake for years.) We Kayaked, water skied, tubbed, fished, swam, and most important totally relaxed. You don't even have to go anywhere, they have thought of it all...they even had docks for the boat. Good food, great value. Already put in for another cabin for next year! Thanks for the memories...family tradition born!

Comments Hidden gem! We found this place on accident and so happy that we did! We couldn't be more pleased that not only was our cabin waterfront, but we had our own private dock for our boat! Plenty of activities, swimming and games for the kids. Love that it's pet friendly! The fact that it's all•inclusive makes this one of our favorite local destination vacation spots! Kids LOVED ringing the Liberty Bell at mealtimes! Staff couldn't be friendlier! Grand Lake has turquoise waters, many islands to explore, warm temps for jumping off the boat to swim and great fishing! We will definitely be returning!

Comments I am sending you love and hugs at the passing of your mom Lois. She was an amazing woman, strong, passionate, opinionated and loving to her family and friends. She and her family built a beautiful legacy in Fireside, and with that, memories for countless families. I know Hunter loved his Grandma very, very much. She will be missed by all. Please feel the love of all who knew her as you navigate the next days and weeks and months without her. She will never be forgotten! Hugs...

Comments I am a descendent of Simon King and Lavina Kauffman, and found out that the restaurant we eat at at least once a summer was built by an ancestor! Tracing my genealogy back to the Kauffman family has been very fun and rewarding.

Comments My family (10 of us, parents & children) stayed there sometime in the 1960s. We stayed in a cabin (or the lodge), us girls had the loft and my brothers and parents had the downstairs. I enjoyed the vacation time that we spent there. I am glad to see that the resort is still in operation.

Comments My parents met at Fireside Inn in about 1941-42. My mother, Katharine Norton-McDougall was a housekeeper/waitress and my dad, Fred Lawrence, worked at Kauffman Boat Works. They were close friends of the Kauffman's.

Comments It gives me a pleasant feeling to see that the Fireside Inn continues to be a gathering place for families to enjoy a part of their summer. Though my children are grown with families of their own, they have returned to Fireside - if only once - with their own family, to find the same friendly atmosphere and people that left such a fond memory with me. I remember the animals that used to hang around outside the office and how they seemed to remember us every year. The "dead animal room" as the kids called it. Borrowing one them to scare my daughter when I sneaked in her room to plant it there. Playing cards on the long front porch. The teen hut where many a game was played. Organizing a baseball game in which all of the guests would partake. I still wonder how I managed to find that field, once every year. Taking whoever wanted to go skiing or tubing, family or not. The nights singing outside by the fire. If there is one regret I have, it would be that I never caught a fish worth posting a picture of on the office wall. I s

Comments In 1959 I celebrated my first birthday at the FIRESIDE INN. This year will mark my 53rd summer at beautiful Grand Lake. I am not sure that in 1908 the Kauffman family realized what an incredible place they had carved out of the woods along the shoreline. Today, it has stood tall for more than a century. When I arrived, “Uncle Joe” & “Aunt Evelyn” Shank a couple that never had any children of their own, owned the Inn and left an impression on me that will never fade. Today, my children are fifth generation visitors to Grand lake and the Fireside Inn. The McConnell family; Bob, Lois, Lori, Terry and Allen, continue that tradition by running the Inn similar to that original vision by making everyone feel like they are a part of the Fireside family. Thank you to the people, but most importantly to what Fireside stands for as a beacon to real family vacations, friendships and remembering what memories are still made of. Here's to the 106th season, may it be safe, enjoyable and as usual, “another beautiful day at Grand Lake.”
