Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband and I have lived and traveled all over the world. Originally from Michigan and Minnesota, we married in Nashville, TN and currently live in Colorado. We chose this unique 'Alta Vista' as our mountain getaway because we enjoy the outdoors and the friendly, small town feel of Grand Lake. We love to hike and view wildlife just up the road in RM National Park and canoe on Shadow Mountain Lake. We also come for personal retreats, to listen to the birds and watch the snow fall. We hope you enjoy our home away from home as much as we do. Mike and Carolyn Nickerson
