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 and decor

  • 4 of 5

This property was ideal for what I was looking for. I enjoyed the warm decor and furnishings. The kitchen window looks right onto Grand Avenue and the mountains. The property has lots of windows and was very clean. I only am giving it four stars because of two issues.

First, there is no way to lock off the main part of the third floor. There are only keys to each of the three bedrooms. Anyone with access to the second floor could easily get to the kitchen area.

The other was under no control of the owner. While we were there, major construction was taking place at the intersection of Grand and Garfield, right outside the bedroom. The noise started at 7 am and lasted until 8:30pm. The noise was loud and shook the building. It looks like most of the heavy construction was wrapping up the morning we left. It definitely put a damper on the quiet mountain vacation I was looking forward to.

That being said, I would probably rent this apartment again. It really was lovely.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to let us know about the construction. The town is upgrading water lines and they failed to let us , or the other local business owners, know in advance. Had we known--and they are done now--we would have warned you and offered you a refund if you wanted to stay elsewhere. But, to make things better we are giving you a $50.00/night refund anyway. We sure hope to see you back again and we truly apologize for the noise the town created this last week. Tracee/owner

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse is beautiful! We enjoyed everything about this place from the views to the very comfortable beds. We had a blast taking daily walks up and down main Street and walking down to the lake to watch the ducks. Very relaxing and we will be back again soon!

Beautiful views, luxurious beds...

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed in this lovely penthouse apartment in mid-January, with temperatures dipping down to the negative teens. The new windows and fireplaces (in each room!) kept us warm and comfortable at all times. There was lots of space in the bedrooms, with each having not only a fireplace, but a sofa, TV and bathroom. The bedding and mattresses were extremely comfortable. There were windows on all four sides of the apartment, with beautiful, expansive views of the main street, the library and park, the lake, and of a resident fox. The snow was deep, but was kept constantly plowed/shoveled and we were easily able to walk to several nearby, top-notch restaurants. Tracee, the owner, was warm, responsive to our questions, and my only regret is that we didn't get to meet her in person. All in all, we had a wonderful time and look forward to staying in this unit again.

Not a family vacation spot

  • 1 of 5

I booked this vacation late in the season so options were slim and prices were high. We've been to Grand Lake many times in the past and I am familiar with the town. When I read the owners comments about the unit being two stories above the restaurant/bar I was concerned but she also commented that the noise quieted down at 10:00 p.m. and that it wasn't a problem. NOT TRUE! The restaurant is open until 2:00 a.m. every night except Tuesday when they are closed for the day. On the weekend there is live music that stops at 10:00. However, the owner has speakers in the windows facing onto the street to attract patrons and recorded music plays on until closing. The patio is in the back of the property and is open as long as people are drinking. The result is that you have noise, lots of noise, coming from all sides until the wee hours of the morning.

The unit is actually three nicely furnished apartments, each one with a lock off and a private bath. It was very clean. In the center is a kitchen. It's not conducive to family dinners, scrabble, card playing or any other family type gathering. There is a small two person table and a couple of chairs. And, if you plan to cook and use more then salt and pepper you need to bring it along.

If you are going to Grand Lake for a wedding or bachelor/bachelorette party or just for the weekend with plans to close the bars down and sleep till noon this unit might be perfect for you. If, however, you are looking for a place where you can rest, read, relax and get a good night's sleep look elsewhere.

Owner's Response: THE RESTAURANT HAS BEEN CLOSED. THERE IS A SMALL COFFEE AND WAFFLE AND ICE CREAM SHOP, BUT NO NOISE. They close at 9:00 p.m. The kitchen has pots, pans, bake wear, many spices, a brand new coffee pot, tea, coffee, popcorn, and olive oil, at all times--and of course dish ware, and utensils, etc. The 3 bedroom penthouse is newly remodeled, has 3 huge bedrooms, a fireplace in each, and bathrooms in each. The kitchen/dining area alone is about 600 sq. feet. Of course, we also have salt and pepper.

charming, but rustic, right in heart of town

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in the penthouse apartment, which was quite charming and beautiful. But, this is not a separate apartment, rather it is the upstairs portion of the house. The three bedrooms have doors that lock, but anyone could come up the stairs so the apartment itself is not secure. The major negative is the fact the noise. We were there on a weekend, and the noise from partiers after the bars closed down was just awful.

Owner's Response: THE NOISY RESTAURANT HAS BEEN CLOSED. The noise issue has been cured. Yes, this is the 3rd floor penthouse in a 3 story building. You have a separate entrance and can lock all your rooms. The 2d floor has a one-bedroom apartment ( sleeps 4, see VRBO 826251) and then this "Penthouse" is the entire 3rd floor of the building.
