                      VRBO Bear stayed here:


                      When I first set eyes on this beautiful log den, I thought, “Oh yeah … this is the kind of place I could hibernate in!” When I walked inside, my thought was confirmed. From the cozy bear-themed comforter to the wood-carved bear table pedestal, I felt right at home among my friends. My favorite bear was the strong one; he was still holding up the coffee table when we departed.

                      It was difficult to decide which room to sleep in. All four were wonderful and accessorized beautifully, but my favorite was the bear-themed room. My friends liked the sleigh room, which inspired sweet dreams about having fun in the snow.

                      We chose to eat most of our meals in and the kitchen fit our plans perfectly. The new stainless steel appliances were a dream. When we weren’t dining in, we headed into nearby Grand Lake to eat and shop. The variety of stores and restaurants were amazing for such a small town! The food we had was excellent and if we had more time, we would have loved to sample all the restaurants. Imagine how fun to be able to drive the snowmobiles into town, for gas, shopping and dining!

                      While the comforts of the fantastic den beckoned us inside, we came to Grand Lake to play in the snow. After all, Grand Lake is known as “The Snowmobile Capital of Colorado”. We rode snowmobiles directly from our cozy log den! There were miles and miles of groomed trails to enjoy, narrow backwoods trails to skillfully maneuver, hills to climb (“Chicken” and the famous “Super Chicken”) as well as meadows full of powder for playing. Around every corner I wanted to stop to take another picture. The views were unsurpassed … God surely did some of His best work right here in the Rockies!

                      At the end of the day, we returned to the den to soak sore muscles in the Jacuzzi tub. Some nights we relaxed in front of the fireplace or watched a movie in the spacious family room.

                      This bear grrrrrreatly recommends you come to experience Mustang Lodge and the Grand Lake area for yourself!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: This home was designed by Chris Hartman of Denver, for his wife Ellen and their children Alex and Austin. Chris is an architechural modeler at a Denver architecture firm and Ellen is a physician assistant in family practice. Chris designed and built most of the home himself...including clearing the lot, stacking the logs and laying the tile. Ellen wanted a cozy feeling home...but plenty of room to have friends and family up for visits.

                      Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake:
                      We have always been drawn to Grand County and Grand Lake. We owned land up there for years before we bought in Columbine...dreaming about the 'some day'. We have ski passes at Winter Park and like to hike in the summer. We like to walk the dog around the lake and enjoy seeing the wildlife. The village of Grand Lake is just so quaint and hasn't changed much over the years...except now main street is paved and they have a wonderful library. Chris has a new 29 inch mountain bike and exploring the trails.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Because the cabin is our second home, it is fully equipted with just about everything you can think of! You really do have enough pans and dishes to make and serve a complete holiday dinner! The house is good for bigger family groups...because it has cozy feel, but yet everyone gets their own space. We keep tinkertoys and legos up in the loft for rainy days and many a guests have thanked us. The fireplace is the center of the living room...not a tv...on purpose. We only have one tv in the basement set up for family movies and do not plan on adding any others. The stars up there are amazing. We now have a phone and internet service...which I resisted for a long time, but finally gave in to.
