About tracee

I am the great granddaughter of Gus and Ana Spitzmiller and the granddaughter of Barbara and Gordon Spitzmiller--on the Lorens side. My Dad was Chris Lorens and he was picked from this County to go to the Olympics. I now live in California and recently inherited my dad's property. I have 3 cabins on 6 acres and all are remodeled. I also have a house right where the river enters the lake--if you ever want a 2700 sq. ft. rental, with a Billion dollar view.

tracee purchased this cabin in 1890

Why tracee chose Grand Lake

Because it is gorgeous and has everything anyone would ever want to feel at home, but in total luxury. You will love the fine wood furniture and the cashmere throw and the art in both the finishing and decor and in the location and view. Plus Grand Lake is an amazing recreational venue. It is the highest natural lake in the State, and the largest natural body of water in Colorado. It borders Rocky Mountain National Park, and in addition to the summer lake and hiking activities, it boasts 125 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, and they are so gorgeous it is known as the snowmobile capital of the State. Grand Lake has live theater in the summer, a private yacht club, marinas, docks, and our property site where the river enters shadow mountain lake. So, you have the added benefit of wetlands and canoeing.

And the canoes are included in the rate!

What makes this cabin unique

Just remodeled-- central heat, fireplace with wood included-- fully furnished and equipped, incl a W/D. Egyptian linens, towels, etc. travetine bath and seamless glass shower. Art everywhere and vintage wood furnishings. oriental rugs--just homey and beautiful and luxurious.

Perfect Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this charming cabin for 4 days over Christmas break with our family. We went snowmobiling near Rocky Mountain National Park, shopping at the unique gift boutiques, art and souvenir shops in Grand Lake, and even set aside time for a spa day and lunch at Devil's Thumb Ranch. The cabin itself was everything I thought it would be, large wood burning fireplace, very comfortable beds, a modern luxury shower, and well equipped kitchen. My family played games at the kitchen table, watched Netflix together and enjoyed the much-needed bonding time. The views from this cabin are spectacular! The majestic Rocky Mountains all around you were beautifully covered in snow. The small winding river in-view just outside the kitchen window was so pretty this time of year, but we imagine that it's even more fantastic in the summer when you can sit outside with a campfire. We loved every minute of our stay here, it was the perfect holiday getaway.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

the Lorens family cabin compound is a fantastic, relaxing getaway. The cabin is enough rustic to be romantically charming but with every amenity.
