Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Falling in love with this area after years of coming here to fly fish, we bought the 72 acres in 1976 and proceeded to build a small cabin, adding a major addition in the mid 1990's which became a 5 star inn. Guests came here from all over the US, Europe and across the world. We designed and built the passive solar timber frame home which we now offer as a whole house rental.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake:
This property and area to us reflects 'true Colorado'--incredible scenic beauty, abundant wildlife, year around adventure activities and a small town friendly atmosphere. Our proximity to Rocky Mt. National Park, three of Colorado's largest lakes and the Village, has made this the perfect spot for us over the years and for our guests who arrive from the sometimes hectic pace of the world to find here at Spirit Mountain Ranch, the calm and centering of nature.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close enough--5 minutes to the lake, 10 minutes to RMNP and the Village of Grand Lake--and yet away from it all. The quiet beauty of one of the oldest aspen groves in the state, hiking and climbing our mountain with no crowds, opportunities to see wildlife and over 60 varieties of birds-truly a place to soothe your body and soul. Our closest neighbor is a mile away and we have 30+ years of knowledge of the area.
