Property description

This cozy, centrally located cabin is nestled in the pine trees, with a trout stream (kayakable) and Grand Lake out the back door. The cabin sleeps 6 with 2 bedrooms (each has a queen size bed with electric mattress pads and down comforters!), while the living area has all new furniture with two rocking recliners and a hide-a-bed couch with memory foam mattress. It is well-appointed with a modern kitchen (refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, oven/range, dishwasher, Keurig coffee maker). Wood paneled walls and ceilings with wood floors throughout. Dining table seats 4 (6 with leaf) with 4 more places at the breakfast bar. Bathroom with tub/shower and cable tv in living room. Cozy up with the wood stove while enjoying the views of the mountains, lake and stream through the large windows on 3 sides. Keep an eye out for the neighborhood fox and moose!

Snowmobilers can sled in/sled out (snow permitting) to enjoy the snowmobile capital of Colorado, with over 100 miles of trails. Grand Lake is at the west entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park with cross country skiing and snowshoe trails galore. World class downhill skiing and snowboarding at Winter Park only 35 miles away and Steamboat Springs 93 miles down the road, with Sol Vista, a small local ski hill, just outside Granby, about 15 miles. Or enjoy the hot springs at Hot Sulphur Springs, a mere 23 miles from town. Or stay in the area and enjoy the many activities at Rocky Mountain National Park and in town during the winter, especially during Christmas and New Year's. Don't miss the holiday show at the new Rocky Mountain Repertory Theater and the New Year's Eve celebration with frozen fireworks.

Come enjoy the crisp, clean air, beautiful starry nights, and majestic views at our little slice of heaven. (please, no pets and no smoking!)

BTW, year round activities and attractions in Grand Lake Colorado include: boating, rafting, kayaking, sailing, water-skiing, lake swimming, fishing, golf, tennis, biking, mountain biking, dirt biking, hiking, hunting, rock climbing, horseshoes, miniature golf, horseback riding, and hot air ballooning. Winter activities include ice fishing, cross country skiing, alpine skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing, dog sledding, snowmobiling (with rentals available in town), sledding, and tubing. All year round: downtown Grand Lake with shopping, restaurants and entertainment, antiquing, live musical theatre in Grand Lake, museums, and nearby fitness center, health/beauty spa, and basketball. And, of course, wildlife viewing (esp., moose, elk, deer, fox).

FYI, the damage deposit is fully refundable, assuming there is no damage. I return the deposit within 1-2 weeks. I will send you a message when I do and it shows up as a credit on your credit card.

Please note: From May 28 until September 20, 2015, the property can only be rented through the onsite management company. Please email Garrett or call 970-627-3314 summer.

Summer 2016 will be managed here on VRBO. Reservations will be open starting December 1 for the summer season.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Hi! We are Don and Jeannette, empty nesters and learning to enjoy our second childhood. We met in college, though never dated, went our separate ways, had families and careers. Six years ago Don showed up at Jeannette's office to tell her that he'd loved her for 35 years. Life conspired to bring us together and now we're exploring anything and everything life has to offer…mostly together!

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake, CO, USA:
Don currently lives in Colorado Springs where he plans to work for 4 more years before retiring. Jeannette lives in Wisconsin. We were looking for a place to start over where we could enjoy Colorado treasures. We were intrigued with Grand Lake because of the laid back town, the proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park, and all the recreation possibilities in the area. When we saw this cabin on the water (great for kayaking, which we love) and so close to the main street in town, we couldn't believe our luck. We are thrilled with our purchase and can't wait to retire and live here full time. Until then, we're willing to share our piece of heaven with you!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
First and foremost we are in awe of the views of the mountains, lake, river, and trees surrounding the cabin. And, as they say, everything is location, location, location! On the lake and only two blocks from town!!??!!! Incredible. Next we were impressed with the quality of the cabin. Wonderful workmanship, nicely finished and modernized. Although it's small we have plans to add a second floor to make room for our respective families to come and share it. We just can't believe that we are lucky enough to be able to live in this paradise.
