Property description

Welcome to our home away from home! This is our family home with beautiful views and we are excited to share it with you. We hope you find it as relaxing and enchanting as we do!

The house is comfortable and spacious, two-story, has a yard to play in, a patio downstairs and an upstairs deck. One of the main reasons why we bought this house is for its proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park, which begins right behind the house or a short drive down the road. We also love the abundant wildlife in the area such as deer, elk, moose, and red foxes that we see often. We just visited the house and saw nine moose in three days of hiking!

We also adore the town of Grand Lake, which you can walk to in 10-15 minutes from the house, it is small and quaint but with lots of activities. It has some great restaurants that we frequent such as: great barbeque at Sagebrush, delicious Mexican food at Poncho and Lefty's, an elegant dinner at The Rapids Lodge, and yummy pizza at Grand Lake Pizza.

Come see why we instantly fell in love with this house and view!

Car: Necessary

Our house is on the hill behind the town of Grand Lake, at the end of a quiet street. We are 5 minutes from downtown and have a bird's eye view of it, but we are NOT on highway 34 which can be very noisy. There are views of many peaks, including Mt. Baldy, and great views of both Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain Reservoir. The house is also a very short walk down the hill from Grand Lake Lodge (5 minutes) or a 7 minute drive, as well as Rocky Mountain National Park starting right behind our property. We wholeheartedly believe that our location, view and atmosphere are spectacular and can't be beat!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My wife and I have been coming to Grand Lake for over 30 years and we were engaged in Grand Lake. As a family we enjoy Colorado each year in both the winter and the summer. Our daughter got married here in June 2013!!

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake:
The house sits on a hill behind the town of Grand Lake with breathtaking views. Rocky Mountain National Park is practically in our backyard and the views of Mt. Baldy and Grand Lake are unbeatable. We also love the town of Grand Lake, it is small and quaint but with lots of things to do. We can relax and find peace or have an adventure, it's all here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can walk to town in about 10-15 minutes or drive down the hill and you are in town, we love walking to the lake or having dinner downtown. Hike to RMNP trailheads from our doorstep, or just hike around the hill behind the house for a stunning view of the mountains and lakes. Enjoy our unobstructed views of Mount Baldy, Grand Lake, and Shadow Mountain Reservoir from our upper deck. Alpenglow at sunset on Mt Baldy is breathtaking and then gaze at the incredible night sky and stars from our patio furniture. We also love going snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter, which you can do just a short distance from the house. There is also some great hills behind the house that are perfect for sledding.
