About tracee

I am the daughter of the woman you see above--my Mom. We are renting her Grand Lake home, which is the Penthouse described here. Mom married dad and moved to Grand Lake in the mid-1950's. For years she owned the local garbage company--the first in our county--and her saying was...'Trashin' is my Passion'. After retiring and selling, that business, she bought the building where this Penthouse is located. Right in the middle of downtown Grand lake--on the boardwalk.

tracee purchased this townhome in 1980

Great location, perfect for our visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, especially since we had our dogs and kids and were right across the street from the city park. Very close to the beach, perfect spot to access all restaurants, with a coffee shop next door, I couldn’t have imagined a better place to stay! Next time we come up we will be looking for this location first.

Great place with gorgeous views right in the heart of Grand Lake!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay here over a long weekend. The views of Grand Lake from the master bedroom are stunning and the location can't be beat: your front door puts you right on to the Main Street (Grand Ave). The host and the onsite manager were very responsive and friendly when we had a few questions too. We traveled with our young kids (3 and 1) and we were a little worried about them making too much noise and bothering the people below us since the main area of this place is almost like a loft and the walls are a little thin within the building (we couldn't hear any noise outside of the building though). But there was a gate that was available for us to put at the top of the stairs so the kids were safe. Overall we really enjoyed the views and amenities of this beautiful home!

Nice location, charming penthouse, easy access to RMNP. Issues with noise, communication, service.

  • 3 of 5

My family and I loved the location of the penthouse. Easy access to nearby shops and lake which are all in walking distance. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed Rocky Mountain National Park. We had a few issues with the penthouse which were not a deal breaker but just a bit annoying. The wi-fi which is one reason we chose the penthouse worked about 10% of the time which with my wife and four daughters, three of them teenagers took some reasoning with. We also had issues with the noise level to where it was difficult to leave our windows open. During the day was the construction crew who were tearing up the street in front and in the night time it was the nearby bar that would magnify the noise until 0200 hours. I know these things are not controlled by the owner but something to consider if are you wanting to stay downtown near the center. Maybe I would call the Town Hall to check on scheduled construction projects because the project appeared to be going for a while and if you have a family, consider the party noise. The other issues we had were sticky floors in the kitchen and bathrooms. There was not enough toilet paper for each of the bathrooms. The keys to rooms, one of the bedrooms did not have a key to access the front entrance. These issues were addressed with the owner during our stay in which one was resolved. We had communication delays perhaps because of the wi-fi issues, so still had to purchase over priced toilet paper. The keys and sticky floors remained throughout our stay with no resolution. The last was there is cleaning fee attached to the amount paid but instructions left at the penthouse before you leave make it appear you have to do half the work so be prepared. This was our first time using a vacation home so perhaps these things are part of the experience. We still enjoyed our stay and time in Grand Lake.we would consider staying again but a lot more prepared communication with the owner will be needed.

Owner's Response: It is difficult to keep up with a guest like this one. He arrived with 10 people, but booked for 6. We had extra keys and toilet paper to him within 45 minutes of hearing from him...but you can't please them all. We do track those who jam our penthouse full of unpaid for guests, though. We just can't allow that. Town construction is rare, and we advise when we know in advance. As for a bar nearby, the closest bar is 2 blocks away. We have Xfinity WIFI and when not unplugged it is very fast. We also have cable TV in every room with nice, big, flat screen TV's. I'm horrified that the floors were sticky. I have a hard time believing it. We really pride ourselves on cleaning very, very thoroughly. The only thing we ask is that you take out your trash as you leave. We do all the rest--and gladly.

Fantastic location, lovely accommodations - great week in Grand Lake

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the location of this property and enjoyed daily walks around the small town of Grand Lake right from the apartment. We hiked to the Cascades walking right out of the apartment and up the road to the trailhead. We cycled into the National Park daily as well, with Grand Lake and this apartment being just a mile from the entrance. The furnishings were lovely; TV, ceiling fans, comfy bed and private bath in each of the three rooms; sweet views from the many windows, which we kept wide open most of the time. We enjoyed walking to a live show (musical) at the Theater, just a couple of blocks west and on the same street, plenty of dining & shopping right there (all walking) - we were in town for the Wednesday evening (weekly) live music in the gazebo right across the street in the sweet little town park. The kitchen is lots of fun to prepare meals in, although we missed having a more spacious dining table and area. The open stairwell is a bit off-putting at first, but not an issue at all once we realized that it was really just a part of our private entrance. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, so renters need to be aware that there are stairs to climb, so perhaps not for folks with ambulatory challenges. Special thanks to Catie, who was a very accessible, responsive & friendly property manager. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will stay here again (we hope!!) and highly recommend the property.

Amazin property! Only downfall is that the lower apartment has access to your apartment and can get into the kitchen! Good thing all the doors locked automatically!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have never--in 4 years of renting this penthouse--had anyone go up to the 3rd floor from the second floor--never ever. Yes, technically they could enter your kitchen--BUT NOT ANY OF YOUR BEDROOMS OR LIVING AREAS because they lock off, but yes, they could get into the kitchen--if they tried. No one seems interested in bothering others like that. So, we can gladly say this has not been an issue for us. We screen our guests carefully, and frankly, I just don't find people want to go to the 3rd floor where someone else is renting and disturb them. But--no worries--all bedrooms and living areas in the 3rd floor penthouse have locks for each door and separate keys for each of the 3 bedroom doors.
