Property description

Just minutes from the historic town of Grand Lake and the 415 square miles of Rocky Mtn National Park, this property offers the ultimate retreat for those seeking scenic beauty and activities suited to all ages and abilities.

Nestled amongst the aspen and lodgepole pine, the Lakehouse in the Woods sits on a rise overlooking Shadow Mtn Lake, Grand Lake and Mt Baldy. This beautiful cabin with its spacious wrap-around deck, was built by the owner over the course of several years, and offers an exceptional open design and upscale craftsmanship throughout.

Inside you'll have plenty of room to relax and spread out. The great room offers comfortable leather furniture, a flat screen TV, DVD player and huge natural stone wood-burning fireplace. The open kitchen has a large quartz island that seats 8, with views of the surrounding lakes and woods. There are 4 full bathrooms, plenty of soap and towels, and a laundry room to use if needed. The tiled front entry has a full bench and plenty of hooks to hang jackets and recreational gear.

Out on the deck you have a gas grill and two picnic tables for warm-weather dining. Plenty of multi-position reclining chairs provide everyone a relaxing spot to sit back and enjoy the view, and two outdoor campfire pits are available for making s'mores. There's even an ample lawn area for recreational activities.

The famous Grand Lake firework shows can be easily enjoyed from the comfort of your deck, or windows.

***Hunters and Snowmobile enthusiasts welcome! Grand Lake is the last town in Colorado where you can still snowmobile in the town!

* To make this home comfortable for all of our guests, we are a 'Smoke-Free' property.

* Well behaved dogs are welcomed with pre-approval from owner & $45 per pet fee.

******* Relax... Rejuvenate... Return! *******

Car: Recommended

In the summer, make sure to take a drive into Rocky Mtn National Park. A favorite route for ease of exploration is Trail Ridge Road, which connects Grand Lake to Estes Park (about 45 miles away). Peaking at an altitude of 12,183 ft, Trail Ridge is the highest through road in the nation! Inside the park you'll find panoramic alpine views of more than 60 peaks that rise above 12,000 ft. The road is open May - October and is one of the most spectacular drives in Colorado!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: As a Colorado native, I truly appreciate the beauty and majesty that is unique to our state. I enjoy boating on the lakes, hiking in Rocky Mt National Park, shopping and eating in town, hunting, snow skiing and snowmobiling with friends and family. I have 3 teenaged boys and an Australian Shepherd named Tawnie.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake, CO, USA:
I fell in love with historic Grand Lake while boating and camping in the area with my family. I chose this lot to build on because of the outstanding views and proximity to town. The Conoco gas/market is a convenient two blocks away, the kids can walk into town, and yet the property feels secluded in the woods.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I have a degree in civil engineering and built this home myself, with the sole intention that many people would be able to come up and enjoy the beauty of Grand Lake!
