Beautiful bookstore full of nice finds, not only in the literary department but on cooking materials, spices, tea, chocolate and all kinds of gift. The store is friendly to dogs and pets (not my issue, but worth mentioning it). The book selection is surprisingly interesting for a bookstore far from the market trails. A must-visit spot in Grand Lake.

If you can't find something to love about this quaint bookstore on the boardwalk, you aren't looking hard enough! I was delighted with the selection available in such a small place as well as the knowledgeable staff. There is literally something for everyone -- from local history books to recent fiction to children's' literature. Nice gift items as well.

When Avis is in the bookstore, it's a lovely place to visit, although I do not go in when Glenda is covering the store. The dogs are my favorite part of the bookstore because they are so sweet! Avis has a nice selection books, and is very knowledgeable about the current best-sellers.

Fantastic little book store. The owner knew her stuff and was very friendly. My daughter and I were both able to find great current books to read on vacation.

We happened on this wonderful little independent bookseller on a recent vacation to Grand Lake. The store has a nice assortment of current best sellers, regional books of interest, cookbooks, as well as candles, some gourmet foods, etc. The owner is very knowledgeable and friendly. She visited with us for a long time and let my boys play with her... More
