Property description

NOTE: Recently renovated March 2014!
In summer be mesmorized by the light of the full moon glistening across the lake in a golden path right up to your window.In Winter, spend the Holidays enjoying the Magic of the glistening snowflakes tenderly falling on the lake and mountains while the glow of the wood burning fireplace warms your soul.

Enjoy the beauty and majesty of the Rocky Mountains and Grand Lake from this beautiful chalet-style home overlooking Shadow Mountain Lake and the Rocky Mountain National Park.

Maximize your time outdoors on the HUGE upper and lower decks, both overlooking Shadow Mountain Lake. Or spend a lazy afternoon lounging in the hammocks while reading your favorite novel. In Winter, nestle up on the couch with your favorite book or read a story to your family as the wood burning fireplace glows with warmth as the snow gently falls out the window wall in the living room.

We are just four minutes from the town of Grand Lake and the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake provides a classic 'old west' town ambiance and fun for the whole family. From there you can enjoy the shops, restaurants, mini-golf, guided horseback riding, guided and unguided snowmobile and ATV rentals, go-carts, bumper boats and more. Walk to the marina and rent a boat from this gorgeous lake home with panorama views of the lake and mountains.

Rocky Mountain National Park is home to an abundant wildlife population including elk, deer, moose, bears, porcupines and foxes (many of these pass through the rental property as well). Miles of hiking and snowshoeing trails are accessible from the entrance to the park.

Trail Ridge Marina is just 100 yards down the road and offers pontoon and sport-boat rentals. You can also snowmobile across the lakes in the winter! Book early as this is a year round vacation rental with strong rental history and repeat renters.
There is no better place to spend vacation or the holidays than in the mountains of Colorado.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake:
Views of the Lake and the Mountains right from this home and of course the beauty of nature all around with wildlife that comes through the neighborhood. Also, the ease of access to Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park and the Arapahoe Nat'l Forest and all the trail systems added to the convenience of this location. And downtown Grand Lake is only a few minutes away so it is easy to get anything you might need at the store.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The lake view and the feeling of being right on the water from the living room or deck. You can throw a stone in the water from here. Our guests write about seeing rainbows, thunderstorms, full moon glows coming across the lake. I like to shut off all the lights in the home and just look at the moon reflect on the lake as it looks like a path of gold light coming right up to you. The alpenglow on the mountains in the early evenings is ever changing so don't take your eyes off of it for a minute. Priceless!
