Spend your vacation or holidays enjoying the Magic of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Three Lakes area within an easy walk from this home located in the Arapahoe National Recreation Area. Enjoy the beauty and majesty of the Rocky Mountains and Grand Lake just outside your door from this newer, beautiful mountain home next to Shadow Mountain Lake and the Rocky Mountain National Park with panoramic views the mountains.
Grand Lake hosts some of the very best firework displays on July 4th and New Year's Eve. We recommend finding a spot closer to or in town for best views of the fireworks as you won't be able to see them from the home.
Maximize your time outdoors on the lake with the canoe and 3 Kayaks included for family fun on the water or by taking in the spectacular mountain vistas and wildlife from the many upper and lower decks . Or spend a lazy afternoon lounging on one of 4 decks while reading your favorite novel. In Winter, nestle up on the couch with your favorite book or read a story to your family as the gas fireplace glows with warmth as the snow gently falls outside the windows. (Note: you have to transport canoe or kayaks to lake with your own vehicle and tie downs)
We are just four minutes from the town of Grand Lake and the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake provides a classic 'old west' town ambiance and fun for the whole family. From there you can enjoy the shops, restaurants, mini-golf, guided horseback riding, guided and unguided snowmobile and ATV rentals, go-carts, bumper boats and more.
Rocky Mountain National Park is home to an abundant wildlife population including elk, deer, moose, bears, porcupines and foxes (many of these pass through the rental property as well). Miles of hiking and snowshoeing trails are accessible from the home as well as access to the National Park and the Arapahoe National Recreation area.
Trail Ridge Marina is just down the road and offers pontoon and sport-boat rentals. For the adventurous, you can also snowmobile across the lakes in the winter! Book early as this is a year round vacation rental and books full and fast each season. There is no better place to spend the holidays than in the mountains of Colorado.
1. We DO NOT allow gatherings or events (family reunions, weddings, rehearsal dinners, etc.) of any kind to take place in our home. We receive multiple inquiries as such so want to provide notification here to help save you time in your vacation rental search. Strictly enforced.
2. CAMP FIRES or any OPEN FIRES are not allowed in this HOA community at any time. There is a gas bbq grill on deck for cooking only.
3. Quiet Time: 10pm to 8am is quiet time. Noise, even normal conversation, travels in the mountains and neighbors sleep with windows open as most homes have no A/C in the mountains. We require guests move indoors at 10pm.
4. Not a PARTY House: This home is designed for quality family gatherings. We discourage heavy drinking groups from booking this or any of our rental properties due to past problems. We will contact the sheriff which will lead to eviction and loss of all fees paid. Best to find another home if you are looking for a party place..
5. When allowed, pet fees apply. ($25 per pet per night). Requires pre authorization by property manager.

A great family retreat!
The house was beautiful and very well equipped. It was a great place for our family stay and play!
A Great Home
Had a great time. Nice floor plan and pretty well equipped. Nice quiet neighborhood. Overall, a fun snowshoeing weekend with friends.
We had a wonderful time at this lovely home. It is spacious, well stocked, and comfortable. We enjoyed some winter activities nearby. We would recommend it highly.
Comfortable & Relaxing
House worked great for four couples during a quick weekend getaway in Sept 2017. Hiked up East Inlet Trail, lounged at the Grand Lake beach, attended show at RMRT (niece in starring role), enjoyed dinner at Mustachios, and relaxed on all of the multiple decks at this very nice home! Wish we could have stayed longer.
House was huge and super nice. Beautiful scenery. Lots of ammentities. Perfect place for our stay! Host was great with communication. Easy check in and check out. Definitely recommended!
Very clean. Definitely would stay here again.
Great western mountain town with awesome 'live' theatre in newly built Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre complex. Abundant wildlife all around lakes and in Rocky Mountain National Park. Go Carts, Mini golf, Bingo, Horseback Riding, Fishing, Hunting and Hiking galore!
