About the owner: We live in Colorado and love to spend time in the Mountains fishing, hiking and enjoying nature.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake, CO, USA:
For years we have been renting places near Grand Lake for our vacations. We decided that the only place we wanted to own a cabin was on Sun Valley Lake. This lake is the perfect size and a great location in one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
A beautiful cabin in a tranquil, breathtaking setting with more activities nearby than you can do in a month. Hike, bike, ATV and snowmobile all from your front door. You are walking distance to Arapahoe National Forest and the Colorado River Headwaters for some great fly-fishing. Winding River Resort is nearby and features horseback riding and other resort activities. On the Trail rentals is also a short walk away featuring ATV rentals in summer and snowmobiles in winter. The cabin is very close to the quaint, historic town of Grand Lake with lots of great restaurants and family activities. Shadow Mountain Lake and Lake Granby are minutes away with fantastic fishing and water sports. You will be easy driving distance to skiing, golf, river rafting, ballooning and countless other winter and summer activities.
