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 Grand Lake
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!

We really enjoyed our stay at this property in Grand Lake. It was perfect as we wanted 5 separate sleeping rooms for our party of 5 couples. The couple that stayed in the loft loved their beautiful winter morning views. The home is very nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The only issue was that one of the basement bedrooms was quite cold and the other one was very warm. The couple staying in the warm room tried to shut the vent but were unable to.
So glad everyone enjoyed their stay! I will be there at the end of the week and will check out the temp issue in the basement. Thanks for letting me know!
Truly a gorgeous home
We spent my mother's 60th birthday weekend here with our family and it was beautiful. The home is gorgeous and the owners are wonderful. I would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a mini vacation away from the city.
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed your stay! There is no place like Grand Lake!!
Beautiful home. Great location!
We would totally stay here again.
Thank you! So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Everything was wonderful!! Beautiful view!!
We loved staying here we didn't even need to bring much. It was fully prepared with everything! It was way better than staying at a hotel. This was our first winter vacation and it will be a memorable one! With the amazing view alone we all want to go back. We were 4 families for a total of 14 and everyone loved the location, views and snow! It snowed the last night we were there into the next morning before we! It was awesome!! There were just a few things that might need a little improvement but not big things. We were so many that the hot water did not last. Some would take showers at night and others in the morning even then you still might be taking a cold shower. Oh if someone is going to sleep in the basement sofa bead it gets pretty chilly in there. Maybe the door to the outside needs to be sealed so no air gets in. Other than those small things this rental was perfect. We were near everything! We went to the Grand Lake Nordic Center which was 10 min away and it was free to go tubing and skiing, they take donations. We bought some small round sleds for the kids while we were out there and we left them there at the rental for future vacationers! The Grand Lake shops were nice to walk through and there were restaurants we ate at Pacifico Mexican restaurant it was pretty good. We walked on the frozen Grand Lake too! The longest trip we did was to Winter Park which was 40+min but it was worth it and we spent the whole day there. I could go on and on about how much we were able to do while staying in Grand Lake. Overall we loved staying here and will return to this rental our whole family fell in love with this home it's now our winter home!
Awesome! So glad you had a great stay! There is no place like Grand Lake!! Thanks so much for staying with us!! We would love to have your group stay with us when you visit Grand Lake again!
Beautiful home overlooking the lake
We had a great time at this house ... We have 14 ppl and each couple had their own room and the kids all bunked in the loft which was great. This house is about 2 miles from an awesome tubing hill located at the Nordic center which was free. About 20 min away we we're able to down hill ski. The town is quaint and cozy and put on a great fireworks show for new year's Eve. Everything went perfect and our host was very communicative if we were to need anything which we didn't bc the house was very well stocked and furnished. My first experience with home away and it was 5 stars. Thank you!!
So glad your group had a great time! There's no place like Grand Lake! Come back and stay with us if you ever visit the area again!
Wonderful property in beautiful area
5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms were perfect for 10 adults. House is right downtown and has exceptional views of the lakes.
Thanks so much for staying with us! Glad you had a great trip!
