Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-15)

We are one mile from the entrance to the Rocky Mountain National Park! Our home is on Grand Ave., directly in the heart of Grand Lake. Within walking distance to downtown Grand Lake. Stunning views of the lake and mountains that sit directly across from our deck. It's so beautiful you may not want to leave the house! Five private bedrooms and three bathrooms. Kids love to sleep in the loft area! We have had two family reunions there with 15 people and had plenty of room. The deck is our favorite spot to grill out and enjoy the views! It is a stunning drive from Denver to Grand Lake. The Grand Lake Nordic Center offers cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, and they are extremely affordable. There are some great restaurants in downtown Grand Lake. Lots of quaint gift shops and artisan shops, museums, and plenty of culture. Hiking is at it's best at Grand Lake. You can hike many trail heads and the Grand Lake Chamber of Commerce offers free maps of the trails in the area. Adams Falls is a short hike from downtown but leads to a gorgeous waterfall. We took a nine-mile hike this summer to LuLu City and saw some awesome scenery and amazaing wildlife. You won't want to forget your camera! The Lakes in Grand Lake include Grand Lake (the largest Natural Lake in Colorado), Shadow Mountain Lake, and Lake Granby. We have rented paddleboats on Grand Lake and they were so much fun. They also have an annual sailing competition. In the winter months you can ice fish and they have several tournaments in Grand County. The Grand Lake library is amazing. It is a huge log library with a beautiful fireplace to sit and read by. There are at least six computers that offer free internet access. They also offer free movie rentals and CD rentals. My family and I have spent many hours there since we bought this property years ago. If you are looking for an amazing place to relax and unwind this is it! We are only 45 miles thu the Trail Head to Estes Park and it is an amazing, breathtaking, drive. Estes Park is a beautiful town with tons of gift shops and a great downtown area to shop in. We enjoy visiting Estes but returning to the quieter side of Grand Lake. The Rocky Mountain Rep. Theatre is world-renowed for the talent that they recruit. In 2011 they moved into their new $10 million dollar facility. It is stunning and the acoustics are amazing. Our entire family went to watch a performance there and had a great time. Whether you want to relax and hang out, hike and see wildlife, shop and eat out, fish or hunt, ski or play golf, Grand Lake truly is an amazing place & somewhere you will want to come back too time and time again. The house is fully equipped and all you need to bring are your clothes. The rest is ready for you to enjoy.

Why Janet McNece chose Northwest

I fell in love with Grand Lake on my first visit there. There is no other place like it. From boardwalks in the downtown shopping area, to the Lake and mountain views, to the Rocky Mountain National Park only being a mile away, it is a phenominal place to vacation or live.

What makes this house unique

One mile from the Rocky Mountain National Park, within walking distance to everything Grand Lake has to offer, cross country skiing in Grand Lake and down-hill skiiing at Winter Park only thirty minutes away. Truly Grand Lake has it all!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect spot for our family to stay in Grand Lake! We attended a wedding on the outskirts of Grand Lake and the house was close enough to everything. We could even walk "downtown". Beautiful views from the house. We really enjoyed it.....all 13 adults and a few little ones. Thank you and we would love to visit again.

Wonderful views!!!

  • 4 of 5

We came to Grand Lake for a short family vacation with four other families, each family had there own bedroom with plunty of space for kids in both living areas. Nice kitchen we were able to make all meals and not have the expense of eating out. The views from the deck are beautiful and it's a short walk to the grocery store. Down town wasn't to far either! The only thing that I would recommend is having some board games or puzzles for kids to do on the rainy days. Other wise it was a wonderful place to stay! The Miller Families

Amazing views!

I absolutely loved waking up to the gorgeous mountain views every morning, and exploring the town and lake. We got to hike in the National Park, and saw elk and a moose! So much fun, and I can't wait to go back.

Had a great time in Grand Lake

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our family get together. Nicely furnished, within walking distance of downtown and the lake, great views. The owners were very responsive to texts when we had questions. We had a great time reconnecting with family; the one drawback was that we were between ski season and summmer season so all of the local activities (horseback riding, go carting, etc.) were closed as well as a lot of the businesses downtown. We will plan better next time. The house was very well appointed with one exception... there was not enough flatware for even 8 people much less 15. Fortunately the market was just across the street so we were able pick up plastic ware without having to go very far. Also we couldn't find a cutting board in the kitchen.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time! We added more flatware recently to accommodate larger groups and there are enough dishes for 16. Thanks! Janet

Loved the house and Grand Lake!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family reunion! The view from the deck is awesome, it's a nice large deck so we gathered there often. VERY spacious bedrooms and living area, we had 12 adults and 2 children and we weren't cramped or on top of each other at all. Furnishings were very nice and comfortable. Would definitely recommend this house and would stay again for sure! The owner was great to work with, very prompt in responses when I was trying to work out details. Thank you Janet for sharing your house with us!
