Grand Lake, a historical old west town, is only about 4 miles from the cabin and is located adjacent to the largest natural lake in Colorado. Bumper boats, go-cart racing, mini golf, guided horseback riding, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, ice fishing, shopping and dining are just a few of the things to do in Grand Lake. The Grand Lake Golf Course is challenging and is one of the most beautiful in Colorado. In the summer, make the 35 minute trip to Winter Park and ride the highest alpine slide in Colorado or go the other direction into Rocky Mountain National Park and make the 48 mile drive over the highest paved road in North America (Trail Ridge Road) into Estes Park. In the winter, enjoy snowmobiling in the self-proclaimed Snowmobile Capital of Colorado. Enjoy the scenic views of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Arapahoe National Forest at the Grand Lake Nordic Center.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: My wife and I have been married for 36 years. We met in high school in Southern CA. and have been together ever since. She is a healthcare professional, and I recently retired from the construction industry. We have 3 children, and 3 grandchildren. Hoping for more soon.
Like most folks, we just want peace and happiness for our family and friends. We were fortunate enough to be able to purchase this home where we have made many memories when family gathers for holidays, or just to unwind for a few days.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake: We chose Grand Lake for several reasons. If you go into the village, you won't see fast food chain restaurants or neon lights. That said, you can get a gourmet meal if you choose to do so.
We enjoy boating and fishing on the 3 nearby lakes, reservoir and several rivers.
On the flip side, there are countless outdoor activities year around. Also, within an easy 30 minute drive is the world renounced ski resort of Winter Park. Within 20 minutes is the smaller more intimate resort of Sol Vista.
To sum it up, Grand Lake has it all without the hustle and bustle of most resort areas.
The Unique Benefits at this House: When we pulled up to view this home, the first thing we noticed was the sound of gently flowing water. The house itself was immaculate to the point that we thought it was new construction. For us, it was a no brainier. In the Summer, we open the windows and go to sleep to the sounds of the river. It also doesn't hurt to go out the back door and go fishing.
