                          Location

                          Car: Recommended

                          We are about an 8 minute drive to Rocky Mountain National Park. We are a short drive to Adams Falls and many other trails. Great views of the Continental Divide, Arapahoe National Forest, Great star gazing & see the Milky Way at night. There is a wheelchair accessible park about 5 miles away on the water with amazing views as well as lake fishing from a wheel chair.

                          About 30 minutes to Hot Sulfur Springs Spa. Over 150 miles of snowmobiling and 4 WD ATV trails, Snowshoeing (see Rocky Mtn. Natl Park Jan & Feb Schedule for snowshoeing and cross country skiing), Winter horse drawn sleigh rides, Tubing Hill. Lots of festivals in Grand Lake and Granby during the Summer, Fall and Winter.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: Beverly is a retired Elementary School teacher. She taught Vocal Music, Kdgn, 3rd grade and Elementary Science. She is a nature enthusiast and enjoys going to schools in Colorado to teach the students and teachers about sea turtles and how we in Colorado affect the oceans. She is an advisor to Colorado Ocean Coalition, a non profit. Craig is a small business owner. Both Craig and Beverly take pleasure knowing visiting families are reconnecting when they get together and enjoy their wonderful real mountain lake log cabin. They have a wonderfully expanding family as their 4 grown children get married and have children of their own. Craig is also a singer/songwriter on guitar. They have a rescued little Chug...chihuahua/pug.

                          Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake:
                          We were looking for a sailboat when we happened upon this wonderful old log cabin that had just been listed for sale. We couldn't resist the view of the Continental Divide, the proximity to Lake Granby, the wonderful natural vegetative lot, the log cabin's room layout and large red brick wood burning fireplace! It reminded us of the Lincoln Log cabins we built as children. Craig and I turned to each other and said, 'We need to put an offer on this.' We did, and the rest is history!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          We love that our log cabin is a 'real' vintage full log cabin and has all the character that goes with it, yet it has modern conveniences. All natural vegetation (like RMNP) surroundings on our property that goes from the dirt road in the front to the dead road in the back of our cabin. Lots of wildflowers and shrubs and wildlife too. We love to ski at Winter Park and Mary Jane and drive back to the cabin in no time with no traffic--all the traffic is going in the other direction toward Denver! We also enjoy the nearness of all the year round special activities the Town of Grand Lake has like the Winter Carnival, Buffalo Weekend, Arts & Crafts, Antique Wooden Boat show, Fall Festival and Fireworks on the 4th of July and again on New Year's Eve, but are so happy to be able to leave the hub-bub and drive 4 miles away to our peaceful dead end street looking out at the wildlife, lake and Rocky Mountains. We enjoy the full moon cross country ski at Grand Lake Touring Center in January and February. We enjoy cross-country skiing there during the day as they even have a trail where a person can cross country ski with their dogs--our grand-dog, Loki, loves to do that! We enjoy lying on the hammock day and night, relaxing or stargazing even if we have to get bundled up! We love to go to Rocky Mountain National Park and take their free guided hikes and things like photography classes. In the winter, we like to explore the trails on our snowshoes too. In the fall hearing the elk bugling is very special. We love it when the aspen trees turn gold in front of our cabin in the fall. Too much to tell. Very, very serene and peaceful. Bev's favorite place on earth is here at this cabin. She has read that the best Feng Shui is on a mountain near a lake, maybe that explains it. Great Rocky Mountain water from the tap and fresh air to breath in! There is even a yoga studio about a mile away, but I do keep a yoga mat for guests and my own use at the cabin. 'HEAVEN!' as one guest put it.
