No fishing licenses are necessary for this private lake and the lake is stocked with Rainbow trout.
In the summer, the mornings are cool enough for a sweatshirt or jacket, while the afternoons are warm enough for shorts and short-sleeved shirts. Fall begins in September as the Aspen leaves turn a spectacular yellow and the elk begin to bugling around the cabin. Winter is beautiful at the cabin with snowmobiling, cross country skiing or snow shoeing. The cabin's wood stove keeps you warm while you enjoy your time away or visiting during the holidays with your family and friends.

Perfect for 8 seventy-eight yr olds! The only issue was possible tripping over the entry way flagstone where it met the carpet.
What a beautiful place. We had an awesome time.
The cabin was perfect...the best furnished kitchen I'd ever been in!
The sheets were a dream!
So very clean.
Thank you so much!
Great house and location, have stayed there many times
Blew away our expectations
We knew the property was going to be great, but in person it was absolutely beautiful! Upon arrival, the house was wonderfully clean and smelled clean as well. It was so great being on the private lake, the fishing was excellent! It was within walking distance of horseback rentals for trail rides, as well as atv rentals. It only took a couple minutes to get to the town of Grand Lake, but was far enough to feel more remote, which was a huge plus for us. We were a group of 6 adults and 4 children, and we all had a bed and slept comfortably. We highly recommend this property, and hope to go there again in the future.
Thank you so much for the review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay!
A nice family vacation. Wish it could of lasted longer.
It could use better lighting, especially over the big table. A pedal boat would be nice too.
Cozy family friendly cabin on a lake
Our family enjoyed our stay at this property. The cabin was clean and well kept. Everything worked fine and we loved waking up in the mornings and having breakfast on the lakeside deck. Quiet and Comfortable even though there were other cabins around the lake. There were 2 adult and 1 child life vests if you wanted to use the canoe. Satellite TV and games were also in the cabin. We used the common area fire pit which was well stocked with wood. If you want to roast weiners over a fire you will need to bring your own sticks as we didn't find any in the immediate area. The owners, Mr. Cooper, clearly take pride in the property and I would recommend it if you want to get away from the rat race.
Horse back riding, hiking, biking, hunting, beer drinking or lemonade by the lake or back porch. We love to go out and see the moose and elk all around the cabin or in the Rocky Mountain National Park that is across the street.
