About the Property

Studio, 1 Bathroom , 2 Sleeps

Must see! This adorable, knotty pine studio cabin is located within walking distance of downtown, Grand Lake, and RMNP.

This 1940's cabin is loaded with historic character and located on a peaceful, aspen-filled lot within Grand Lake village. This quaint 400 square foot studio knotty-pine cabin has a queen-size bed, separate kitchen area, bath, cozy gas fireplace, and sitting area with cable television. Gas stove, microwave, and dishwasher available. Grill and sitting area located outside. Use the coffee-maker in the morning, or wander downtown to one of the local lake-side coffee
shops. Perhaps just lounge in the outside seating area and watch for wildlife to wander through the area. This cabin's charm, quiet environment, and walking-distance proximity to town, the lake, and the Rocky Mountain National Park trailheads make it an easy choice for a vacation stay.
Do you have friends/family who would also like to vacation at the same time? A darling cabin is located next door - listing 674069 on VRBO.

Car: Recommended

Grand Lake, Colorado, is a gorgeous village surrounded on three sides by mountains. Multiple lakes, including Grand Lake (largest natural lake in CO), Shadow Mountain Lake, and Lake Granby (second largest body of water in CO) are all sheltered among the mountains. This combination of mountains and lakes offers year-round entertainment for visitors.

This 1940's cabin is nestled in a peaceful neighborhood in the midst of Grand Lake village. Visitors can enjoy nearly all Grand Lake amenities within walking distance! Horse-back riding, snowmobiling over the Continental Divide, fishing (including winter ice-fishing), shopping, swimming, boating, hiking, a fantastic repertory theatre, and good restaurants are all within blocks of this quaint cabin.

A short drive or horseback ride allows hunters easy access to National Forest. Cross-country skiing on miles of groomed paths is located at the Nordic ski center, approximately 3 miles from the cabin. This same short drive provides access to beautiful scenic golfing in the warmer weather. Downhill skiers can enjoy the smaller, family-oriented amenities at Granby Ranch (15 miles), or a larger variety of downhill options at Winter Park (30 miles). A wonderful repertory theatre provides a variety of live shows nightly in the summertime.

On a typical evening, enjoy a beverage while seated on a giant porch swing at the Grand Lake Lodge looking out at a stunning view of the mountains, lakes, and village, enjoy an evening of bowling and homemade pizza at Grand Lakes Bowling, or just enjoy the quiet solitude of this peaceful cabin in the village.

Moose, deer, fox, bear, and other animals have wandered through this cabin's neighborhood, and a walk or drive into Rocky Mountain National Park at dusk will normally yield many elk and moose sightings.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We (Dan and Rebekah) were raised in the Kansas flatlands, but we each vacationed in Colorado while growing up. We finally made the leap to the high country 6 years ago, and we have taken full advantage of this giant playground ever since our move. Dan and Rebekah currently live in Windsor, located in northeast Colorado. Dan works with the University of Colorado Health System, and Rebekah retired from employment with this health system two years ago. She currently enjoys her work with a number of civic organizations, as well as master gardening, welding, and other hobbies. Dan and Rebekah enjoy every aspect of this wonderful Colorado environment. They are avid fly-fishermen, hunters, hikers, and general outdoorsmen. The couple enjoys a sizable amount of time in the mountains. Dan completed his due-diligence in investigating options for a mountain home. We wanted a location that would appeal to all ages, all year round, and we wanted activities that involved mountains, water, wildlife, and a community atmosphere. After looking at dozens of options, we found that Grand Lake met all of our needs.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake, CO, USA:
We spend a sizable amount of time in the mountains. Dan completed his due-diligence in investigating options for a mountain home. We wanted a location that would appeal to all ages, all year round, and we wanted activities that involved mountains, water, wildlife, and a community. We have several children, and this location and property provides a central location for family members to walk or ride bikes to nearly every amenity within Grand Lake.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
One look at this rustic cabin would help anyone understand why we purchased this home. It is nestled within aspen trees in a peaceful neighborhood - and it is within walking distance of downtown, Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park. This cabin has history - several Grand Lake locals have lived in this cabin over the past 80 years, including a previous Grand Lake mayor. It's knotty-pine interior and quaint fireplace looks like a Norman Rockwell painting. We purchased this cabin, as well as the cabin next door, as they belonged together in a 'Jack and Jill' cottage setting. Some of our family and friends have enjoyed using both cabins to have family gatherings.
