Short Term Rentals
Welcome to the Grand County
All property owners desiring to engage in the short term rental of a residence in unincorporated Grand County must apply for a Short Term Rental Permit with the Department of Community Development. These permits will need to be applied for on an annual basis, as they will expire one year from the day they are approved.
STR permit fees are based on maximum advertised occupancy. The fee is $25 per occupant. Example: If your property is advertised as sleeping 10 people, your fee is $250. Fees can be paid by credit/debit or electronic check. Transaction fees apply. (e-check fee $1.00, credit card fee is $.75 and a 2.25% surcharge).
At the end of the application, you will be directed to another website to pay your fee. Once paid, return to the application with the nine (9) digit Order ID.
What to Have Ready to Apply
