About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Enjoy the beautiful views from our gorgeous recently-built (2002) cabin home, 'in town' and just a short walk to either Grand Lake or Shadow Mountain Lake. Secluded enough to ensure plenty of peace and quiet, you won't find it unusual to see moose, elk, foxes, and other wildlife feeding on our wildflowers during the morning/evening.

Grand Lake is a quaint historic town that serves as the western 'less-crowded' entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park -- access to the park is a short 100-yard walk from our cabin! -- and provides an abundance of both summer & winter activities. Golfing, boating, swimming, fishing, water-skiing, jet-skiing, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding, along with the many restaurants, gifts shops, live theater, and social events in town make this an ideal summer vacation.

Our 2BR/2BA home can accommodate up to 5 adults, has been equipped with designer bedding & hand-selected furnishings to convey a 'contemporary rustic' feel. The master bedroom offers a queen bed w/ private bath, the 'kids' room offers a twin/full bunkbed with trundle, and there is a queen sleeper in the family room. For those who want to stay connected we have our own free wireless internet (wi-fi) connection for you to enjoy fast and secure browsing and streaming.

About Joe & Casey Kigin

Originally from the East Coast, my husband Joe went to CU for graduate school when we were dating. We fell in love with Colorado and after visiting Grand Lake while he was here we knew we were destined to make Colorado our eventual home. We moved to CO in 1997, raised our kids (Son 24, Daughter 19, Daughter 17), who had the pleasure of being able to spend the summers & holidays of their childhood being "raised" up at Grand Lake, going to nearby YMCA Summer Camps and attending the Grand Lake Youth Theatre Workshops, and make Grand Lake the focus of our immediate and extended family get-togethers. Wherever life takes us we know that we will always come back to Grand Lake as our "Happy Place".

Joe & Casey Kigin purchased this house in 2003

Why Joe & Casey Kigin chose Grand Lake

As we started raising our family we would come up to Grand Lake several times a year & one time on a horseback ride that went above town we rode through a quiet neighborhood that had several new cabins that had great lake views and was walking distance to town. We fell in love with our cabin for the peace of mind of it being newly-built, having private unblocked views of Shadow Mountain Lake and of the Never Summer Range. Inside it provided the cozy feel we were looking for while being able to provide all of the modern amenities we felt we and our customers would enjoy in a home away from home. Being able to walk into town, up to the Grand Lake Lodge, down to the Lake(s), and being a short 2-min drive from the main entrance to Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park, as well as the many other opportunities provided in the area for summer/winter recreation only add to the appeal of providing a more enjoyable vacation than going to Summit County & Estes Park.

I loved my stay in the mountains!!!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 16, 2005

If you love the beauty of the mountains, breath taking views, a clean cozy cabin and seeing wild life up close and personal then you’ll love this cabin in the mountains. To my surprise, upon entering the beautiful town of Grand Lake, there on the side of the road was a huge Bull Moose with antlers bigger then I have ever seen. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Where else, other then Grand Lake, could I have seen a moose on the side of the road? What a lucky bear I am. If that wasn’t good enough to make the whole trip worth it I stepped into the cabin and was pleasantly surprised. The pictures I had seen did not do it justice. This clean cozy cabin had a full kitchen, living area, beautiful views, and relaxing atmosphere which made me feel at home right away. I could not wait to sit my paws down and relax in front of the fireplace. Within walking distance to Shadow Mountain Lake, Grand Lake and downtown Grand Lake there was so much to do. There were also some wonderful restaurants to eat at, such as Sagebrush (barbecue), Pancho and Lefty's (mexican), and Chuck Hole for breakfast. Oh where these little legs can go. I definitely had a Grand time while staying in Grand Lake and will come back to visit the area again. Signed, VRBO Bear

Relaxing location.

  • 5 of 5

Great property and location! Only thing I wished was there were more things to do. Shops in town closed super early, before 7 so a lot of time if we needed something, we were not able to get it.

Also, the highway that takes you from grand lake across to Estes Park, which was where we wanted to visit was closed!

Besides the mishaps of things out of our control, our stay at kigins cabin was great! Very cozy and clean cabin and would stay again if we are looking for a relaxed vacation.

Wonderful stay! Even better than described!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights in August 2017 and can't wait to go again next year. The cabin is so comfortable, close to town and convenient. The view of Grand Lake is beautiful. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking items and dishes. The master bedroom was comfortable and roomy. I don't have a single negative thing to say. Excellent communication made arrival day simple. Just an absolutely perfect stay.
