Vacation Rentals - I’m guessing you are already covered for this weekend. But, planning another trip to the lake later this summer? There is a killer Duck Creek waterfront rental, plus a couple of beautiful Cleora area homes, among others. Check out all of the featured Grand Lake vacation rentals HERE.
