The Grand Lake area is the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and Arapaho National Forest. It offers an abundance of both outdoor activities for all ages. There is also direct access from our front door to over 100+ miles of ATV trails and 150+ miles of snowmobile trails through Arapaho National Forest. Take a hike, bike ride or a short 5-minute drive to Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mountain National Park. A short 5 minutes down the road is a pristine 18-hold golf course. This facility can be enjoyed year around when converted into a Nordic Center for cross country skiing, ski skating or snowshoeing. Visit the Historic Grand Lake Lodge for a romantic dinner. Then take in the amazing views of Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain Lake from their world famous front porch. The historic Grand Lake Village is just 3 miles down the road and offers numerous activities such as fine dining, summer theater, boating, fishing, swimming, miniature golf and more!
Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: My husband and I custom built this mountain home in 2001. We general contracted every step of the way with much attention to detail and structural integrity. My husband is a commercial banker and I work in the schools, so I have the summers off to help maintain and run our VRBO. Our daughters are grown now and work full time, so as a family, we just don't have the chance to use our second home as much as we'd like; so instead of selling, we decided to help cover our carrying costs by signing onto VRBO. It has been a lot of fun meeting so many wonderful families from all over our country and sharing this special part of God's majestic world with them.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake, CO, USA:
We chose Grand Lake and this particular area because it reminded us of Michigan where we grew up. The Sun Valley Lake area is in the Kawuneeche Valley, so the roads back to our cabin are flat, with miles of open space land covered in pines and willows. The water gently flowing down the Colorado River and the numerous lakes/ponds in the area also reminded us of Michigan. The main difference is the water is much much colder for jumping in!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the many benefits of staying in our cabin home is the location if you are into quietly observing/photographing nature up close, taking nice walks/hikes around our area dotted with small lakes, fly fishing or just wading in the Colorado River, this place is for you. If you want a little more action, walk down to the Winding River Resort campground for horseback riding, ATV rentals, petting baby farm animals, or catching your pancake hot off the griddle for a Chuckwagon breakfast experience! They also offer a Cowboy Chapel service down by the Colorado River on Sunday. Just a five minute drive you can be checking out the Kawuneeche Visitor Center as you head up into Rocky Mountain National Park. A few minutes in the other direction, you can be stopping into Grand Lake's Visitor Center, then down into the heart of Grand Lake Village for boat rentals, shopping, or dining. If you like to cook your meals at home, check out the quaint Mountain Market for fresh produce and an excellent meat market.
