About Kathleen Tees and Michael Wageck

Mike & Kathleen have lived in Grand County for 20 years. Their love of the outdoors brought them to this site to build this home in 2003. We love outdoor sports such as fishing, kayaking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and golfing. We love this home all seasons of the year but fall is the most spectacular due to the beautiful changing aspen trees.

Kathleen Tees and Michael Wageck purchased this house in 2004

Why Kathleen Tees and Michael Wageck chose Northwest

We chose this piece of property because of it's sunny location. Abundance of aspen & pine forest attracted us to this secluded location.

What makes this house unique

The home is a newer ranch style. The space is very comfortable and makes for easy living. The great room sits in the middle with ceilings 18 feet high with stripped trees reaching the height of the great room and running through the ceiling. Floor to ceiling windows provide great mountain views and sunsets. The bedrooms sit on either side of the great room with a bathroom adjacent to both.

Incredible Honeymoon in Colorado

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I could not have chosen a better location for our honeymoon! The house is amazing, VERY clean, and offers everything anyone might need. It provides incredible views as it is perched on a hillside in the countryside. With a thick forest that surrounds the house, there is quite a bit of privacy. However, although it is comfortably secluded, it is well situated between Grand Lake and Granby, just a short, BEAUTIFUL drive to either town. There is plenty to do in the area, and my wife and I took advantage of the many hiking trails in RMNP, the shopping in Grand Lake, and time to relax outside under the awning at the house. Definately recommend this home, we had a remarkable week.

Beautiful, spacious, quiet

  • 5 of 5

We book homes through VRBO for every vacation, and I have to say this has been one of our favorites! The house was beautiful and very well stocked. My daughters are avid cooks, and they loved the kitchen. The master suite bathroom is impressive!

We spent a lot of time on the deck..... we liked being able to eat outside under cover. The location is private and peaceful, but not too far from Grand Lake and RMNP.

There is a nice selection of books, movies, and games/puzzles. Everything in the house was high quality and well maintained.

We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it to others!

Wonderfully relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Secluded cabin with beautiful surroundings. Once we got there, never wanted to leave. Cabin looks just like the pictures. Halfway between Granby and Grand Lake, so can experience both. Looking forward to our return trip...

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very well decorated. The view was great. The house was a little out of the way, but easily found with a GPS or the printed directions provided. We saw a herd of 60+ elk, and one moose. We also appreciated the quality of items provided from the pots & pans to the shampoo. This was the best VRBO we have stayed at.

Cute and cozy and super clean!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this great little house. Everything was clean and ready for us. The heat was on to make it comfortable when we arrived. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was great. It was so nice to have a nicely stocked kitchen with the little extras. We loved our trip! Lots of snowshoeing and great weather. Would love to come back again.
