About The Owner

We love Grand Lake and know you will, too! Our family owned a local resort for over 50 years, so we know a little about hospitality and the local area. We can't be in Grand Lake all the time now, so we hope you will enjoy our home for us when we are away!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Grand Lake

Grand Lake is home--to residents and travellers alike. Our family has been connected to Grand Lake since 1953 and we hope to be connected there forever! It is a little slice of heaven, perfect for family time, outdoor activity, and peace.

What makes this house unique

This home is a 1/4 mile from Highway 34 but you wouldn't know it sitting up on the ridge and enjoying the view. The property is around 1 acre with a huge kids' play structure, and campfire area with picnic tables and benches. Dogs have a fenced area right off the deck, so you can let them out without worrying the wild animals will get them! The hot tub is clean and built right into the deck to get in and out of easily. Kitchen is big, easy to use, has double ovens, gas range, and plenty of counter space. We have lived in Grand Lake for years, and have all the local tips, information, and connections you need!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My 4 year old granddaughter did not want to leave--asked why do we have to go, but why can't we just stay here........I agreed with her. The house was, as you said perfect for our family. We didn't have to block off or remove non kid friendly items-just remember to shut the bedroom, bathroom doors. Really nice to have everyone on the same level. All 3 of the little people especially enjoyed the legos - lots of building. They also discovered snow makes a great extender for the slide. I also appreciated your prompt responses to my questions and how easy you were to work with through out the planning for the weekend. My experience was that you were invested in my family and I having a good time. We do plan on being repeat renters.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was chosen for our family reunion and everyone agreed that there could have been no better choice! What an absolute pleasure to stay here! It was very clean, the kitchen was furnished with all that was needed to cook and then some, plenty of linens and towels. The camp fire was a big hit for our family reunion and the hot tub was great! The owner was very responsive to questions. I would absolutely recommend this house!

Great Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this home to share with out of state friends and 2 small children. We were looking forward to a peaceful vacation in the mountains and this home did not disappoint! Katie was very accommodating and had tons of toys for the little ones. This was a big plus for our group because they all flew to CO and were unable to bring much with them to keep the kids entertained for a week. The hot tub was a perfect way to end our evenings after hiking & touring RMNP. Our only disappointment was that we were unable to use the fire pit due to the fire ban in Grand County, but it looked awesome!

The house itself was clean, spacious, and fit our group of 9 easily. The kitchen has everything you’d need and was big enough to have multiple people working in there at once. We spent a lot of time on the deck watching the hummingbirds and even saw a group of elk early one morning. The house is close to several marina’s if you want to spend the day on Grand or Shadow Mountain Lake and only minutes from RMNP. Our out of town guests really felt the CO vibe and if we decide to vacation in Grand Lake again, will definitely use this house. Thanks for such wonderful hospitality!

Spacious family retreat located in historic Grand Lake, CO

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful vacation home met all the needs of our family of 12 which ranged in age from 2 to 86. The little ones loved the playground equipment and books and toys, and we all enjoyed the hot tub after meals prepared in the gorgeous kitchen. The location is convenient to shopping and events in Grand Lake, but was so quiet and peaceful all we heard were chipmunks and birds. We were unable to use the fire pit because of forest fire precautions, but were able to make S'mores using the gas grill. We all ate every meal on the spacious deck with even a child's picnic table for the little girls.The owners responded quickly with our questions and requests. All in all, this was a fantastic retreat for our annual family reunion, and we hope to return next summer.

Clean, stocked, beautiful house and property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with a large group and absolutely loved this home! The kitchen is large and had everything you could possibly need to cook meals. The floor plan is spacious and provides privacy in each bedroom. All the mattresses were comfortable, pillows and linens clean, and plenty of extras! We had 4 young kids (4-6yo) and 2 babies with us, and the owner provided a high chair and pack-n-play in addition to the crib in one bedroom. The swingset in the yard was a definite bonus! This property had everything we were looking for and more, and our stay was perfect. Owner is really easy to work with. Highly recommend.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

We found the property to be full of the amenities of home with a great view! This is a very spacious home with plenty of room to entertain family and friends. The big deck, hot tub and fire pit provided a lot of fun. The location was extremely convenient for either going into the town of Grand Lake or getting rentals for boating, paddle boards, etc. We rented a pontoon from Trail Ridge Rentals five minutes down the road and had a great afternoon on Shadow Mountain Lake and Grand Lake. Owners left plenty of instructions to make things easy during our stay.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Great house! We had multiple families in the house and there was plenty of room! The view of Shadow Mountain Lake and Grand Lake from the house was to die for. Katie, the owner, was very responsive and made the stay great. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to go to Rocky Mountain National Park
