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 Grand Lake
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.

Love Shack cabin!!
My husband and I were relaxing for our anniversary. The cabin is absolutely beautiful inside. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed. There were games for us to play and the fireplace in the bedroom area was divine. The weather was a little rainy one evening and the warmth from the fire was so nice. We will definitely recommend the little “love shack” to our friends!
Quaint, Quiet getaway!
This cabin was so homey! My best friend and I had a blast using this as our home-base while we enjoyed escaping our respective cities! Loved having the wood stove burning and watching for wildlife outside the huge windows!
Will definitely be returning in the summer!
Thank you so very much, and we are glad you enjoyed our cabin.
Please come back this summer. In the summer we have canoes and kayaks included, as well as, the firewood.
Wonderful little cabin that has been lovingly upgraded.
Furnishings are eclectic and fun. Windows are large and provide wonderful views and great light. Linens and towels are first class. Wood stove in bedroom is the crowning touch. We will be back!
Thank you and come see us again.
Perfect mountain getaway
The cabin is just as described if not better. It is easy to access but still feels like an escape to the mountains and wilderness. It is well equipped with everything you need for enjoying time away. The fire place warms the entire cabin and the views are magical, with big windows that allow you to wake up to stunning mountain views. There is always firewood and the bed is just as comfy as described. You’re also very close to grand lake village with restaurants, shops, and amazing snowmobile trails! I will definitely be back as much as I can!
What a lovely review. Thank you and come any time.
Amazing as expected
After reading through all of the reviews on this cabin I was expecting an amazing time and I was right. The cabin was as explained and perfect for our trip. The bed and bedding was great and just about everything we needed was provided. The cabin was private, but still very close to the highway for easy access. Tracee let us check in early with no problem and while we didn't need to call Catie for anything, we talked to her while she was refilling the firewood without us asking. She was great too. Couldn't have been a better stay.
Thank you so very much.
Tracee and Caitie
Very cute humble abode
The home was very cute and cozy. Honestly not a problem with staying here for a couple days and 2 nights. We couldn't seem to get the oven/stove to work. Other than that the home was great.
Thank you very much for your kind review.
I have checked the stove/oven and it is working well, BUT, I am so sorry you had trouble understanding it.
I have added instructions to the cabin to assist people and , please, please, always feel free to call Caitie, the on-site manager. She is paid to be there and help with anything.
Just think Butler-on-site, or Majordomo, on-site. She's super nice and truly enjoys making sure our guests have everything they need.
We are on the West border of Rocky mountain National park.
