At the western edge of Rocky Mountain National Park sits the historic town of Grand Lake, Colorado. It is a town where one steps back into time, where the store owners proudly manage their businesses, and greet visitors every day from their western boardwalk storefronts. It is home to fabulous dining, overseen by local restaurateurs, and designed to give visitors the optimal dining experience. Grand Lake is a town that buzzes to life at night; live music resonates from local lodges and saloons beckoning patrons inside for premiere entertainment. It is a place that houses the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre, and frequent festivals and parades.

Grand Lake, Colorado is steeped in rich western history, which is embodied in our daily culture. One may find horses parked outside local establishments alongside cars. Once home to the Ute Indian Tribe, the spirit of the west is alive in Grand Lake, long after the tribe dispersed. The former County seat, Grand Lake lost the title in a wild west shoot-out. There are historic walking tours, museums, and other opportunities to immerse yourself in the way of the west during your visit to Grand Lake.

It is where nature grabs your soul, and visitors understand the feeling of being able to really breathe again here. Its namesake, Grand Lake, is the deepest natural lake in Colorado, dipping to 265 feet. Fed by high mountain runoff, the lake is clear and pristine. Home to the Colorado River Headwaters, streams and rivers snake through the area, inviting you to fish and hike along their waters. In the spring watch the wildlife emerge from Rocky Mountain National Park, cow moose and their young calves toddle across our local streets. In the summer months visitors can explore the lake by boat, kayak, and even paddle boards. Horseback riding, ATVs, and cycling opportunities are as plentiful in the area as the trout are in our waters. Golf, hot air balloon, and live your dreams here.

Winter also invites visitors to play in Grand Lake’s winter wonderland. Grand Lake is the “Snowmobile Capital of Colorado,” with over 125 miles of groomed trails. Cross Country ski, ice fish, create a snowman, and watch snowflakes peacefully fall to the ground and build upon gathering snow. A thriving creative community is alive in Grand Lake; local artists and galleries are must-sees! Grand Lake invites you to our home, full of year round stunning natural beauty, and the opportunity to actualize what you only dreamed existed. Welcome to Grand Lake, Colorado!!

                  At the western edge of Rocky Mountain National Park sits the historic town of Grand Lake, Colorado. It is a town where one steps back into time, where the store owners proudly manage their businesses, and greet visitors every day from their western boardwalk storefronts. It is home to fabulous dining, overseen by local restaurateurs, and designed to give visitors the optimal dining experience. Grand Lake is a town that buzzes to life at night; live music resonates from local lodges and saloons beckoning patrons inside for premiere entertainment. It is a place that houses the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre, and frequent festivals and parades.

                  Grand Lake, Colorado is steeped in rich western history, which is embodied in our daily culture. One may find horses parked outside local establishments alongside cars. Once home to the Ute Indian Tribe, the spirit of the west is alive in Grand Lake, long after the tribe dispersed. The former County seat, Grand Lake lost the title in a wild west shoot-out. There are historic walking tours, museums, and other opportunities to immerse yourself in the way of the west during your visit to Grand Lake.

                  It is where nature grabs your soul, and visitors understand the feeling of being able to really breathe again here. Its namesake, Grand Lake, is the deepest natural lake in Colorado, dipping to 265 feet. Fed by high mountain runoff, the lake is clear and pristine. Home to the Colorado River Headwaters, streams and rivers snake through the area, inviting you to fish and hike along their waters. In the spring watch the wildlife emerge from Rocky Mountain National Park, cow moose and their young calves toddle across our local streets. In the summer months visitors can explore the lake by boat, kayak, and even paddle boards. Horseback riding, ATVs, and cycling opportunities are as plentiful in the area as the trout are in our waters. Golf, hot air balloon, and live your dreams here.

                  Winter also invites visitors to play in Grand Lake’s winter wonderland. Grand Lake is the “Snowmobile Capital of Colorado,” with over 125 miles of groomed trails. Cross Country ski, ice fish, create a snowman, and watch snowflakes peacefully fall to the ground and build upon gathering snow. A thriving creative community is alive in Grand Lake; local artists and galleries are must-sees! Grand Lake invites you to our home, full of year round stunning natural beauty, and the opportunity to actualize what you only dreamed existed. Welcome to Grand Lake, Colorado.

                  Star-gazing (Lots of stars in the night sky!), ATV rentals, Snow shoeing, Ice fishing, Fly Fishing, Sleigh rides, Dogsledding, Bowling, Go cart rentals, 'Bumper' boats, Kayak rentals, Boat tours, Boat rentals on Shadow Mountain Lake at Trail Ridge Marina (~1/4 mile) www.trailridgemarina.com, Hot Sulpher Springs (30 minute drive), Grand Lake Library (very nice), Massage Therapy available in Grand Lake (2 miles) and surrounding towns, Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre (live, professional theatre) www.rockymountainrep.com for schedule information, Town of Grand Lake www.grandlakechamber.com.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We love the outdoors and all the wildlife. The Village of Grand Lake is small and very special, not like the larger mountain towns or cities! Grand Lake is right on the water.... the largest natural lake in Colorado. We are fortunate to have three nice lakes (and several rivers) right here. Summer and winter fishing. This place is well suited for boats and ATV's as well as snowmobiles and skiing! Enjoy the magic of a small historic Colorado town. A DAY in the mountains is better than a MONTH in town! If you are lucky enough to live on the lake...you are lucky enough! ENJOY!

                  Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake:
                  This place is special...you can feel it as soon as you arrive. Fantastic views, plenty of wildlife and friendly people. The largest natural lake in Colorado too. Everything is very close. This area is much smaller (and nicer) than the big ski towns. Lots of outdoor activities all year. Boating, fishing, hiking, snow mobiles, cross county skiing, snow shoeing, wildlife photography. This is a hidden jem of a town for fantastic live music.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I fell in love with this area the first time I visited. A comfortable, slower pace with beautiful mountains and spectacular lake views. Plenty of flat land so you can have fun outside without feel like you are standing on the side of a ski slope. Speaking of ski slopes....cross country skiing and snow shoeing out the front door....downhill ski resorts...Sol Vista (soon to be Granby Ranch ski resort)..... (20 minutes), Winter Park (35 minutes) and Steamboat Springs (90 Minutes). Great fishing summer and winter! Get involved in an ice fishing contest! Plenty of wildlife to see right from the house. Once you get to know the 'Grand Lake Village' experience....you will understand. ENJOY your life...and spend some of it here.
