This custom built home located in The Shores of Shadow Mountain subdivision could be considered the perfect “home away from home”. It is only a 10 minute drive to town and just a short walk to the lake. Could it get any better?
When I arrived with my traveling companions, John, the homeowner greeted us and gave us a complete tour of this spectacular home. At one point, we gazed out the “crow’s nest” windows in awe of the lake and mountain views. We were blessed to see the amazing flight of a bald eagle (where was my camera when I really needed it- still packed).
The air was cold and crisp while the snow was sparkly and fresh. The lake views were breathtaking, especially one morning when the fog rolled off the lake. You could see the crystal trees that had been coated by frost as the fog moved across the lake and land.
This home featured exquisite furnishings and custom accents from top-to-bottom. Each bedroom was warm and welcoming. The master bedroom had a great breakfast/reading deck (which a furry bear like me can enjoy this time of year), and the master bathroom truly made me feel like royalty. The kitchen was beautiful and very well equipped with everything you could imagine to cook a meal. While we ate and played games, the fireplace located between the kitchen and the living room kept everyone nice and toasty. My favorite feature was the radiant floor heating; it was so wonderful to pad across the warm, cozy floors. I could have hibernated just resting on the radiant, warm floor.
Some of my companions enjoyed a morning of snowmobiling up on the trails and others took snowboarding lessons at Sol-Vista Ski Resort, which was only a 30 minute drive. We went bowling at the Grand Lake Bowling Alley and went sledding on the nearby sledding hill. However, the best part of the trip was hanging out and laughing together, in the warmth of this amazing “home away from home.”
Grand Lake was a very quaint small town, but still offered a couple of small grocery stores and several different restaurants. On our final night in Grand Lake, we went to town and dined at a Mexican restaurant called Poncho and Lefty’s. The food was very yummy.
You will not be disappointed with a stay in this exquisite home!

About the owner: We love Colorado's mountain lake areas and we found ourselves spending so much time up here with our young family that we bought a cabin and then another and before long I was building, buying and selling throughout Grand County. This home is our latest design and was built by us to take advantage of its unique location. We are proud of the design and feel of the home and think you will love it too.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake: Grand County is in very close proximity to the metro Denver area and is a year round playground... snow brings on cross-country and alpine skiing (Sol Vista & Winter Park) and snowmobiling on over 100 miles of groomed trails.
The summer months we can play in and on the lake, out on the islands and of course the magnificent Rocky Mountain National Park. Locals will ride ATV's, take hikes, fish (rivers and lakes abound) and play on their jet skis and power boats and don' forget sailing on magnificent Grand Lake. Spring brings it's flowers and in the fall we have some of the most outstanding aspen seasons along with the elk rooting in RMNP so it is a true 4 season destination.
The Fall season is wonderful with the highlight being the Aspens and Elk rutting in RMNP.
The Unique Benefits at this House: -Access to the public dock at the south shore of Shadow Mountain Lake -proximity to the Town of Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park -one of the best subdivisions in Grand County -snowmobiling on the lake (during certain times of the year) -hiking to Adams Falls & Monarch Lake
