              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: We are Colorado natives who attended in-state colleges and enjoy entertaining family and friends. Having owned and operated our own construction company for the past 26 years, Our Hummingbird Retreat is where we want to be. We have married children and several grandchildren who also love to get away to the 'cabin.'

              Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake:
              After several years of traveling the mountains of Colorado, we decided that Grand Lake was the one place we LOVED returning to again and again. It is only an hour and 50 minutes from Denver and the perfect combination of mountain beauty, outdoor fun, unique shopping and cultural conveniences without the crowds of the I-70 corridor.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our peaceful retreat with its lovely sunrises, serene mountain and lake views and its cool afternoon tranquility makes it hard to leave. It truly is our home away from home.
