Nestled into the corner of Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake is an ideal location for a weekend (or week long!) getaway.
This cabin is conveniently situated in downtown Grand Lake, just 300 feet from private lakefront and a two minute walk from downtown.
We are located in the community of historic Lemmon Lodge, which offers exclusive access to a private beach and dock, five wooded acres and private lake frontage, as well as access to private fishing on the North Inlet. The cabin is one block from the historic downtown “Boardwalk,” providing walkable and convenient access to all shopping and dining in Grand Lake.
We do not have a direct lake view, but walk 300 feet in either direction, and you have your choice of enjoying private beachfront at the Lemmon Lodge beach or the Grand Lake public beach. We are located next door to the Grand Lake Yacht Club and a short walk from the lakeside "snack shack" - our favorite places to enjoy our morning coffee and lunch or ice cream runs during the summer months.
This is a two bedroom, one bathroom cabin. It has a full kitchen, which allows for cooking any meals, as well as an outdoor picnic area. The main living area has a fireplace, and ample room to enjoy cozy nights playing board games and cards (provided!) at the cabin. There are two decks with seating and a peekaboo lake view from the master deck (especially during the winter months), perfect for enjoying your morning coffee. The master bedroom has a king bed. The second bedroom has one queen bed and one twin bed. The unit comfortably sleeps up to five guests.
The main floor of the unit is the original cabin, built in the 1940's. The top floor was later added, giving this cabin historic charm, perfectly paired with modern conveniences.
If you have children, please note that a pack n' play, baby blankets, child locks on bathroom and kitchen cabinets and a wagon for trips to the beach and town are included during summer months. We also have a basket on the main floor that includes a selection of children's toys, puzzles and books.
The stairs are steep, and a baby gate is NOT installed. Our small children navigate them easily, but please consider this, if you are travelling with small children or ANYONE with a disability or trouble with stairs.
No dogs or pets of any kind are allowed. Our youngest son is allergic to cats, dogs and bunnies, so this is of particular concern to us. The HOA will assess a fine of $100-$350 per offense, per day. The offending guest will be responsible in full for the fee payment.
There are two dedicated parking spaces in front of the unit. Trailers, RV's and tenting are not allowed. The HOA will assess a fine of $100-$350 per offense, per day. The offending guest will be responsible in full for the fee payment.
Please - NO SMOKING of any kind - either inside OR outside of the cabin on the decks. A $250 deep clean fee will be assessed if the appearance of smoking inside or on the decks of the cabin is apparent (cigarette butts, ashing), or if any smoke smell in the cabin is detected by our cleaning crew or property manager. Our son has severe allergies, and smoke exacerbates them. If you are a "smoker," please do not rent our cabin.
We have two kayaks with paddles and life jackets available for your use. They are stored behind the house and can be carried to the Lemmon Lodge beach, just a short walk from the cabin. Please do not leave the kayaks on the beach. They must be stored behind the cabin each night.
We also have a wagon for hauling beach gear (or kayaks!). Please note that the kayaks and wagon are placed in storage from late September through late May.
Boat slips at our private dock are available for rent for $20/day, based on availability. If you have a boat, the public boat launch is less than a mile from our house. You may leave your trailer and car for up to three days at the public boat launch. From the public boat launch, the Lemmon Lodge docks are just around the corner! You may rent a boat slip for the duration of your reservation, pending availability.
We have a charcoal grill on our porch during the summer season, available for your use. Charcoal and lighter fluid are not provided. We share a picnic table with Cabin 3 (the table is located between our cabins). Cabin 3 rarely uses it, but please note that it is shared space.
We fell in love with this property because it is within a two minute walk to all things needed for an ideal getaway: private beach, private dock, some of the best fishing in Colorado, spectacular hiking and snowshoeing trails, public beach and marina (where paddle boat and boat rentals are available), cafes/coffee shops, restaurants, a large public playground and more...these are all just steps from our front door! And when sitting on the front porch or in the back at the picnic table, it is nothing short of serene.
And Grand Lake isn't just for summer getaways! The town is known as the snowmobiling capital of the world. Snowmobiles are available for rent just a few blocks from the cabin, and can be driven throughout town (snow conditions permitting), as well as on hundreds of miles of trails in Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake has world class ice fishing, and the nordic center is located appx. one mile from the cabin, boasting miles of trails, along with a sledding hill. Ski Granby Ranch is a 25 minute drive, and Winter Park is 45 minutes away.
Whatever the season, with the spectacular scenery and year-round activities that Grand Lake offers, there is no better place to book a vacation.
