About the Property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

The Buffalo Lodge is a custom hand-hewn log home located directly on Sun Valley Lake and is a perfect year round getaway providing many recreational opportunities. Whether it’s spring, summer, fall or winter, our Lodge offers a beautiful retreat for you to relax and enjoy your time off.

The cabin sleeps up to 10 people and it features 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The master bedroom is very large with a king size bed and has a jetted tub for you comfort. The second bedroom features a queen bed and two twin bed and the third bedroom has a king bed and bunk beds. The house has a porch on the lake side and a large side porch both with beautiful lake views.

The cabin features a large great room, (circular) that attaches to the kitchen. This is a great room for relaxing or entertaining. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is satellite TV, DVD player, gas BBQ, and laundry facilities for linens and towels. There is also a canoe for fishing or just boating around Sun Valley Lake. There is a large open space on the grounds, with a playground, BBQ pit and picnic tables for larger groups. You may also walk to the Colorado River just a few hundred yards from the home via our private access area.

Our cabin is nestled in the mountains at 8,700’, between Rocky Mountain National Park (800 feet away by foot), and the Arapaho National Forest (a few blocks away). The cabin is a few miles north of Grand Lake, Colorado and just a short distance from the entrance to the west gate of Rocky Mountain National Park. The cabin is located on Sun Valley Lake a private 22 acre lake providing a great escape year around. 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.

Come join us for you next getaway and enjoy nature at its best!

Thank you for staying at Buffalo Lodge! Because the cabin is a privately owned home, you’ll find it is well kept, cozy and decorated with personal touches and items. Please treat it with respect and leave it the way you find it, with all amenities and property intact. This will allow all of us, both owners and renters, to continue to enjoy this very special setting. We hope your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. By renting our cabin, you agree to abide by the rules of the house and of the neighborhood, exercise reasonable care, to be responsible for damage to or loss of property during your stay, and to pay the cost of repairs or replacement of all missing or damaged property.

There is a $95 fee for cleaning the house after your departure. Additional cleaning charges will be deducted from your deposit if there is heavy soiling or if the house is not left as you found it. Additional Cleaning fees are billed at $50 per hour. After the cleaning service has cleaned and taken inventory, we will return your deposit. You can expect to receive your deposit within 2-3 weeks. In many cases the cleaning fee is only held on your CC and not charged until additional cleaning or damage is found. If you are interested in saving some rental money, please inform us that you would like to clean the linens (remake the beds) and towels and return to where you found them, clean the bathrooms, vacuum the carpet and just leave the house as you found it. (can save up to $50 per rental)
