Property description

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! Four bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is also a loft with a office or card table area and two queen blow-up mattresses in a seperate room. 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 Grandby. 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 last year. 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.
