About the Property
Hike and ski or just relax in a beautiful mountain home
In winter there is snow shoeing and cross country skiing out the door or in Rocky Mountain National Park. The Grand Lake Touring Center offers many miles of groomed trails, expert lessons and a free tubing hill. Granby Ranch, a small ski area, is 16 miles away. Mary Jane/Winter Park is a major resort and is 37 miles away (about 45 minutes). Berthoud Pass is a popular backcountry ski destination.
We spend several months at the house every year and it is very well cared for. We hope the house will be enjoyed as a place to relax and to appreciate the very special beauty of Grand Lake. We are hikers and skiers and the area provides and abundance of that but it is also a wonderful place to do nothing and let yourself luxuriate in the free time in the mountains.
Sorry, we do not allow any motorized vehicles (snowmobiles, ATV's or Jet skis) at the house.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

About the owner: I grew up skiing, hiking, canoeing, sailing and mountain climbing in Grand Lake. I spent summer and winter vacations in the old log cabin next to this house. My parents bought that cabin in 1952. You can read about the house in several of the Grand Lake history books, we have them in the library. It was sold in 2000 and we renovated the Willowbranch (an out building of the old cabin) then to become our Grand Lake retreat. I am an artist. My husband loves Grand Lake as much as I do. He is a scientist. We try to spend as much time as we can in Grand Lake where we work and get out into the mountains. When we are not in Grand Lake we are in Beacon, NY and Woods Hole, MA.
