About the Property

3 Bedroom, 4 Bath Home On Shadow Mountain Lake

Clean lines, warm wood, open spaces, comfortable furnishings and perfect proportion soothe the spirit in this house designed by an Interior Designer as a get away for her own family. The comfortable great room overlooks the lake and mountains through a window wall proportioned according to the Golden Mean. Enjoy the vintage stereo equipment streaming your favorite music through wall and ceiling mounted speakers. Bond with friends and family while preparing meals in the gourmet kitchen which effortlessly accommodates multiple cooks and has seating for 5 at the island counter. Build a fire and roast marshmallows or make s'mores in the super efficient Rumford Masonry Fireplace. Head downstairs to the entertainment center with large flat screen monitor, blu ray DVD player, and surround sound. There is no TV service but you can rent movies or stream your favorite shows via high speed internet.

Outside, gather on the dock to read, fish, or launch your favorite boat from 2 of 3 slips. The lake is great for fishing, boating, water sports (bring a wet suit!), bird watching, wildlife viewing, lounging and enjoying the spectacular scenery. Never get in your car; take your boat into town and tie up at the town dock for lunch, ice cream, or shopping. Cross country ski on the lake in winter, or drill a hole in the ice and catch a fish!

The house a private bedroom and bathroom on each level, perfect for 3 couples or 2 families with kids. The location is close to everything: Rocky Mountain National Park west entrance - 1 mile, Grand Lake Village center - 1 mile, Grand Lake golf course - 2 miles.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Howard and I were born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and both of us, coincidentally, moved north at the age of 14; Howard to Colorado and I to Minnesota. We did our graduate work at the University of Colorado and have lived in Boulder ever since. Though we love the mountains and Colorado, we missed the water; so we began looking for a place where we could have both. We fell in love with Grand Lake instantly, purchased our land in 1992, began construction in 2001, and moved into our dream vacation home at the end of 2002. Our 3 daughters have grown up here and love to come back to this special place.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake, CO, USA:
Location Location Location!! Best view, right on the lake, with easy access year round. In summer, the private dock is a glorious place to hang out and read or visit with friends, and of course provides instant access to your boat for water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, wild life viewing, and joy riding. In winter, skiing and snow mobiling are right on your doorstep. Shopping, restaurants, library, seasonal theater, and a charming village center are just a short walk or boat ride away. Rocky Mountain National Park is less than 2 miles away, and golf, tennis, the nordic center, horse back riding, and many more activities are all within 2 miles.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with the view of Baldy, the way it is perfectly framed by bluffs on each side. The south east exposure, proximity to town, and year round accessibility. Shadow Mountain Lake has less boat traffic and it's eastern shore is in Rocky Mountain National Park so can never be developed. The lake is shallower, warmer, and has more wildlife. Freezes sooner and thaws later than Grand Lake, extending the season for winter activities. It's the best.
