About the owner: We are Coloradoans who know how to appreciate the great mountain outdoors. We feel visitors will get a satisfying experience when visiting, whether you are an active outdoorsman/woman or just up to enjoy the quiet mountain air and sun. We had our first blind date in Grand Lake over 40 years ago and have enjoyed it ever since.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake: We bought this home because so many activities are readily accessed from this location.
There is access to: Rocky Mountain National Park, Columbine Lake, Grand Lake, Shadow Mountain Resevoir, and Lake Granby, all within a short walking or driving distance.
Also the Village of Grand Lake is a short drive away and provides strolling through town shopping, or watching the sail boats float and the speed boats fly across Grand Lake, or play in the water at the swim beach. Rent a boat or paddle boat, fish, kayak, or water ski; or you might just cruze the lake sightseeing the mountains that encircle the lakes.
Hikes of all sorts are available including many along the Colorado River, even up to its headwaters!
Drive over Trail Ridge Road, the US's highest continuous paved road, to Estes Park for more shopping and sight seeing.
Stop at the top visitor center for amazing mountain top views from above timberline at 12,000 feet, a quick lunch, and souvenirs. Hike out to various points along the way for breathtaking views of the region's valleys, glaciers, and mountains.
Do NOT forget your best camera and extra batteries! There is nothing in the US like this!
Also dress for ANY weather in the mountains, from warm weather to winter type weather even in the summer. Take a picnic but be prepared to take shelter if weather rolls in.
Bring your backpack and wet weather gear. Don't forget sunscreen and chapstick - Mountain musts!
Horse rentals available for an equestrian experience or hay ride at nearby Winding River Resort.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: The lot backs up to the golf course, and with a vacant lot next door it feels nicely private. The Golf Course Clubhouse is only 1/2 mi. away. The lower bedroom has its own electric heater/stove. Our favorite space is the east facing outside covered deck large enough to accomodate many and includes a patio table + 6 chairs, additional seating wicker couch, a swinging bench, and BBQ. The cabin is simple but efficient. Rooms are generous with lots of windows. Ceiling fans keep the air moving if needed, and a woodburning stove makes the great room very cozy. Satelite TV is available.
When there are no fire restrictions you can enjoy a fire in the firepit out back. Please be EXTREMELY CAREFUL as fire danger can be great.
