About tracee

I am the great granddaughter of Gus and Anna Spitzmiller who settled here in the late 1800's. Gus came to this area to mine Silver at Lulu City with others like the famous Squeeky Bob Wheeler. He eventually settled down and brought his wife Anna to Grand Lake and became the first Master Plumber in Grand County. Anna had the first indoor running water in the County. My grandmother, Barbara Lorens married Gordon Spitzmiller (Gus's son) and they joined their plumbing business with grandma's dairy farm--on what is now Shadow Mtn. Lake. Eventually Shadow Mtn Reservoir was made, and so, we have property all along the river to the lake.

tracee purchased this cabin in 1940

Why tracee chose Northwest

This is one of 3 cabins, plus a family home, I own in Grand Lake. This is the 1 bedroom, and is the smallest of the units, but still about 900 sq feet. All my cabins are BIG. It has been fully renovated on the inside, and many find it so cozy and romantic that they call it the 'Love Shack'. We also have a 2/1 vrbo # 454309, and a 3/1 Homeaway # 3564480. Or if you have a big group and want to splurge, you can rent our family home, vrbo # 490482.

What makes this cabin unique

Very private and gorgeous property with easy access on and off the main road and only 2 miles to the village of Grand lake. You can canoe in the wildlife area from our meadow ( as the whole property is surrounded on 3-sides by the Colo. river) in the Summer or snowmobile right across the lake to town and the trails in the Winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I were on a cross-country road trip,and we decided to spend a couple of nights in Grand Lake. The cabin was decorated nicely.The bathroom was clean and recently renovated. The fireplace and wall heaters kept the cabin very warm,even though it was cold outside. There was plenty of firewood. The property is amazing! The cabin is located very close to town and the entrance to the National Park. I would recommend this cabin, or any other on the property,to my friends and family, over and over again. Tracee, the owner, was incredible. She treated us like family and was very accomodating. I cannot imagine a better place to stay in Grand Lake.

I will most certainly be back. I will spread the word to all my colleagues and friends traveling from Florida.

Super clean cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Did not expect it to be so close to the highway, and water pressure in shower was extremely low. But, impressed with how clean the interior of the cabin was.

Tiny, affordable, and great!

  • 4 of 5

My son and I stayed here on a Father-Son trip we took this Summer. This house is super tiny, we kept hitting our heads on door frames (we're both over 6 feet tall); but it had exactly what we needed to enjoy our week at Grand Lake. The kitchen is great, the view out the bedroom window is fabulous, and the location is perfect for easy access to RMNP and Grand Lake.

We'd totally stay again if we were in the area!

Owner's Response: Yes, the ceilings are a bit low. But the cabin itself is about 900 sq. ft. Thanks for the review and we hope to see you the next time you are in our area. BTW--all the rest of our cabins have high ceilings--this is our smallest unit. Tracee

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here twice and both times we had great experiences. The cabin is clean, well maintained, and very nicely appointed. We enjoy the coziness of this cabin and especially the wood stove on cool evenings. The owner and on-site manager are very good to deal with and made our stay more enjoyable. We love this part of Colorado and we've fallen in love with the town of Grand Lake. The location of this cabin is convenient to RMNP and to the Granby/Winter Park areas where there are more things to do than time allows.

Adorable - recently remodeled Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time with our dogs. The cabin is comfy and adorable. The snow made it difficult to get to the river and the "porch" swing, but we expected that and it was gorgeous and very quiet. The communication/instructions with the owner was quick and clear and the lady onsite was extremely available and helpful. We had a great time. Only things I would add is a gas grill (there is a small charcoal grill) and a TV in the cabin (probably good to not have it, but, esp. in the winter, we would have liked to have the option). Not only would I recommend this cabin to others, I HAVE recommended it to 3 co-workers already!
