About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Come stay in our charming, mountain lake home and enjoy the gorgeous, 180 degree views of Rocky Mountain National Park and Shadow Mountain Lake. Cook up a hearty breakfast in the kitchen and enjoy a cup of coffee while savoring the views, quiet location, and easy access to numerous activities. An artesian spring and willow bushes provide natural attractions for moose, fox, elk and other animals which you will likely see during your visit.

Spend a fun-filled day skiing, snowshoeing or browsing the shops in Grand Lake. How about sledding or cross country skiing with your family? This cabin is the ideal place for you to make those special memories that will last a lifetime. Have fun hanging out together and getting away from it all - enjoy board games, doing a puzzle, or just relaxing in the laid back Colorado mountains.

Have lunch or dinner in one of the many fine local restaurants. Perhaps you will decide to explore the night life in the valley, or maybe a relaxing evening at home is in order. The full kitchen has everything you need to make a wonderful home-cooked meal.

Return to the cozy cabin after a busy day in the mountains and sink into the soft recliner couch with a bowl of popcorn to watch a movie. When it's time for bed, climb our signature spiral staircase to the master bedroom and loft, aka 'the fort,' which is perfect for the young and the young at heart. Then nestle under the warm quilts for sweet dreams, until you awake to another amazing day in Grand Lake, Colorado.

**We also own the Moose Cabin, #218770. Rent one or both cabins! They are on the same 1/2 acre, but separate. A great place for two families to stay.*** OR consider our Grey Fox Condo in Granby Ranch #4352958. Ski, golf, fish, and mountain bike in this gorgeous valley and then relax in our well appointed condo. Ski-in/ski-out!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We love the Grand Lake area and all of the outdoor activities it offers. We especially enjoy relaxing at the cabin when we are not going up to do chores! As lovely as the cabin is, we are always making improvements. We believe if we are comfortable there, our guests will be as well. We're both Colorado natives who love sharing our beautiful state with visitors. We are CU Buffs, with two children who are also Buffs. We love skiing, climbing, biking, sewing, wine and microbrew tasting, and spending time with our family when we can get them together!

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake, CO, USA:
This 1950's cabin started out as an A-frame, which later saw some major additions. It is a unique cabin with fun decor, and gorgeous views. We stay there frequently, and are always making improvements. Come up to enjoy skiing, hiking, wildlife, views, fishing, boating, snowshoeing!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Frequently, we have moose, elk, and foxes wander across our property. Grill on the lower deck, and roast marshmallows out by the fire pit. The winter snowfalls are amazing. Stay warm inside or choose one of the many outdoor adventures. The summers are cooler than where we live in Boulder, and we can see far more stars! There is much less traffic and smaller crowds in Grand Lake than other CO tourist destinations. Come play in our wonderful mountain paradise!
