Grand Lake house description

@ The Office On The Lake™

Come enjoy the extraordinary beauty and warm friendliness of Grand Lake, Colorado with its abundance of Summer and Winter activities! Built in 2006, this well-appointed 2000+ sqft home is centrally located in Grand Lake, just above the very charming Grand Lake Village with its old west buildings, boarded sidewalks and friendly residents. It is adjacent to the historic Grand Lake Lodge property, which provides for a peaceful mountain retreat.

From the gorgeous great room with hand-built, river rock fireplace, or spacious deck, savor the beauty of majestic Mount Baldy and sparkling views of Shadow Mountain Lake and Grand Lake! Take in the starry sky on a warm summer night while relaxing on the deck. Watch the best fireworks in the Rocky Mountains from the deck on the 4th of July or New Year’s Eve. In the winter when road snowpack allows, hop on your snowmobile right outside the door and ride into town or hook up with a trail. There are so many things to do and memories to make in Colorado’s best-kept secret!

Grand Lake Village and Grand Lake are within easy walking distance at less than one half mile away. Shadow Mountain Lake is less than one mile away. You’ll have easy access to over 100 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, enjoying the lakes, or shopping, and eating in town. Lake Granby is just a few miles down the road.

The West entrance to a national treasure – Rocky Mountain National Park, where you may encounter moose, big horn sheep, or elk herds, is a little over two miles away. Incredible Colorado skiing is nearby with Sol Vista Ski Resort only twenty minutes away; Colorado’s playground - Winter Park Ski Resort only forty minutes away; and Steamboat Ski Resort, with its legendary champagne powder is a little over an hour away!

Original oil paintings, by the home owner, accent the various rooms in this mountain home. You can view her paintings on the web. Please inquire.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Hello, we are Mike, Carole and Matt from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. We love to travel and decided to purchase a small slice of paradise in Grand Lake - our favorite location in Colorado! The house is not a 'rental', it is our vacation home that we occupy occasionally throughout the year and truly enjoy sharing with guests. We've given the house the nickname of 'The Office on the Lake'. Feel free to tell envious friends and family that you are hard at work 'at the office'. Cheers!

              Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake:
              When we bought the house we wanted to be able to walk into town but still have the peaceful serenity we enjoy with the empty space behind our home where we often see wildlife. The perfect location for us was on a hill directly north of the town. Our backyard opens up to an unimproved area that is owned by Grand Lake Lodge. We have ~15 acres that separates us from the Lodge. It is less than a 1/2 mile walk down the hill into town. We think you’ll love the location. We've enjoyed being close to town but also enjoyed seeing moose, elk and deer in our own yard. We believe it's the perfect combination of lake/mountain views, close proximity to town and peaceful mountain serenity. It is true mountain lodging at its best.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Grand Lake is a year round destination. During the summer you can enjoy boating on the 3 lakes, hiking, mountain biking, ATVs, 4th of July fireworks, and the list goes on. During the winter months Grand Lake is the snowmobiling capital of Colorado with over 100 miles of groomed trails. Skiing choices are numerous between the cozy Solvista resort nearby, Colorado's play ground at Winter Park and legendary champagne powder of Steamboat Springs. Perhaps the greatest year round draw of the area is Rocky Mountain National Park with it amazing scenery and abundance of wildlife.
