Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Cute and cozy cabin located just 3 miles to the south of the town of Grand Lake and only 3.5 miles to the south of Rocky Mountain National Park. This cabin has expansive lake views with the Continental Divide beyond.

Best suited for small families with 2-3 kids.

There's room to back a trailer into the driveway. So, if you're planning on going boating in the summer or snowmobiling on the expansive network of groomed trails to the west of town in the winter, parking isn't a problem.

There has been a family of moose wondering around the neighborhood so don't be surprised if you wake up one morning and see them outside the window.

In the spring you can hear the roar of the Colorado River as it swells with snow melt. Try your luck at fishing and have fresh trout for dinner!

Boat rentals available just down the street!

Keep in mind that this is perfect for a small family or couple. Any more than 3 adults overextends the sleeping accommodations.

About Stuart

We love to get away to Grand Lake and enjoy all of the beautiful things that it has to offer!

Stuart purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Stuart chose Northwest

The three lakes surrounded by mountains makes for one of the most beautiful places in Colorado. Having Rocky Mountain National Park within a 5 minute drive is another big plus.

What makes this cabin unique

A great place to unwind and forget about work!

Beautiful cabin, however no working heat and dishwasher issues.

  • 3 of 5

First of all I'd like to say that the cabin was beautiful. Much better presented in real life. However, there were a few nuisances during our stay. First off, our main concern was that the wood burner was not working. I followed the instructions, my father and boyfriend both looked for a pilot light, and also texted the owner (with whom I've exchanged texts with before). No response. Being the middle of April, most of our stay as accompanied by a blizzard. We were forced to use heat from the oven, because I never got any response from the owner. Next issue: dishwasher being fully loaded and no dishwasher detergent to be found anywhere in the house. I know that this is his housekeeper's doing, not unloading the dishwasher, but now I am forced to unload clean dishes before I can put my own in. Following instructions on the sheet emailed to me, I wanted to be sure I put every dish used and ran the dishwasher before we left. So after I unloaded the previous guest's full load of dishes, I had to do mine by hand because there was no detergent available.

I hate to be one to complain, but for the amount of money spent, I think we should at least be equipped with heat in a snowstorm. The dates of our stay were April 19-21. Like I said, the cabin was very comfortable, and the windows everywhere were a delight. Also, the fox coming up on the deck and peeking in the window was pretty cool. Just those two negatives...

Owner's Response: I've recently conversed with this renter via text regarding her review and she stated that she'd retract it for reasons below. First off, I'm sorry that there was an issue with the heat. When I saw this review, I checked back to the initial two text messages between us. I never received a text regarding no heat. If I had, I would have contacted my neighbor to go and look the issue or taken other measures to immediately address. It was revealed that the number that she texted was one digit off. I have to say; an issue as urgent as no heat should require a better form of communication than a text. Secondly, I'm sorry that the dishwasher needed to be emptied upon arrival. Definitely a housekeeping issue which I've addressed. As an owner, we use the property often in the winter for skiing. We happened to use it the Friday after this mid-week renter checked out (that Friday morning). When we arrived that Friday we found a cold cabin. I noticed that the main shut-off to the FP was off. Obviously I wondered why and was concerned by this because it's the sole heat source for the cabin. Good thing we came up or we wouldn't have known. Think frozen pipes. I turned on the gas and lit the pilot and it fired right up. We also found a dishwasher full of dirty dishes. Plates that were not rinsed and wine glasses that looked like they had been used for bacon grease. Honestly, it looked like all of the dishes were sprayed with grease. We immediately ran the dishwasher using one of the pods from the almost full box under the sink (behind the box of garbage bags). I'm glad that this renter enjoyed the cabin but the two nuisances that were mentioned could have been corrected with a phone call and a little effort.

Cozy Cabin was Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Cozy Cabin was perfect. We have two daughters (11&7) and they loved the bunk beds. Pictures do not do this place justice. Views of Shadow Mountain Lake are beautiful. Close proximity to Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park. No bears, but did have a deer walk up to the back of the home our last night. Furnishings and decor are spot on. Would definitely stay here again.

The only reason we won't stay here in the future is if it's booked!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Cozy Cabin! The location is awesome, close to RMNP, the town of Grand Lake, GORGEOUS views, great outdoor space, commercial grade gas grill for meals and just the perfect amount of space. We have been to Grand Lake many times and we always enjoy our stay, but this cabin has by far the highest quality of furnishings, bedding, towels and the kitchen is extremely well outfit for a great getaway. It makes a difference when you feel the quality the owner has put into the home! The kitchen has a huge, deep undermount sink with a great faucet, slab granite, super clean, great dining table with views...I could go on and on. It's definitely our first pick for Grand Lake! The owner is absolutely awesome to work with as well.

Great cabin for small families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time staying at this cabin. I would highly recommend it. We were able to fit our daughter's pack n'play in the room with the bunk beds and she slept great. The kitchen has everything you'd need, the view is gorgeous, it was nice and cozy for us. We drove up to Rocky Mountain National Park for 2 days of snowshoeing and it took us less than 10 minutes to get there. I would highly recommend a stay here!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cozy cabin. Amenities were great, location excellent. The cabin is cute, very clean and homey. We cooked breakfast there each day and one dinner, there were tools for everything.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin. The views were incredible, and the first morning, we had a visit from a bear!

It had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The kitchen was very easy to cook in. We brought our dog & she seemed to feel right at home. too. The roads around the cabin were great for taking her for walks.

It was very convenient to downtown Grand Lake and surrounding trails.

Stuart made the arrangements very easy. We would return again.
