About the Property

Directly on Lakefront, Walk to Shops and Dining, Outstanding Lake/Mtn Views

Our modern three bedroom, three bath, loft-style home is a roomy, comfortable condo in a beautiful building that sits directly on Shadow Mountain Lake at the edge of town of Grand Lake. You can see all of Shadow Mountain lake, Shadow Mountain and Mt. Baldy from the main balcony of our home.

This property is in a very quiet condo complex of retired couples and is not a party atmosphere. Rather, it is an excellent choice for a peaceful, relaxing getaway, where respecting neighbors' privacy and serenity is not an issue.

The two buildings of Shadow Mountain Yacht Club have a gorgeous, green front yard that beckons family get-togethers and games. Our home is beautiful, ultra comfortable ... Just a stone's throw from the shores of Shadow Mountain Lake and a short walk to the village of Grand Lake, Colorado.

This beautifully decorated, fully furnished mountain-lake home has two master suites with king-sized beds and a four bed bunk-room offering - plenty of room and luxury. Our home is filled with warm colors and a wood burning fireplace. The kitchen has beautiful wood cabinets filled with everything you could want for a service for 8, including wine glasses. The condo is on the third floor of the building and uses three short, enclosed stair runs (7 or 8 steps each) from the parking lot.


There are two coffee options - one, a Bunn, so you can quickly make a full pot of coffee, or the other, a Keurig, for the single cup specialty coffees or teas. A full set of pots and pans is available, as well as a crock pot, full size electric griddle, chili pot, two over sized cookie sheets, glassware and plastic ware for your leftovers.

The main floor features the living/great room with a wood-burning fireplace, beautiful leather sectional sofa, eating area with a large table and eight chairs, bar height counter opening into the kitchen with four bar stools and a large screen TV with internet and WIFI. The view from the sofa looking out through the sliding glass doors and windows to the balcony is absolutely gorgeous.

The main floor also has the master bedroom with a king-size bed, large closets, large dresser and a master bath with a beautiful slate tiled shower and separate vanity area. The master bedroom also has a private balcony looking out to the lake and Mt. Baldy.

The bunk room is also located on the main floor with four bunk beds, a large closet and super comfy Ralph Lauren comforters. Also on the main floor is a full bath with vanity, shower and tub.

A convenient 1st floor laundry room provides a washer and dryer and room for kicking off your shoes and hanging up coats and hats, skis and snowshoes.

The loft is on the second floor overlooking the great room. The loft has a leather sofa and television with DVD player. There is also a full bath off of the loft with a very large vanity area and separate slate tiled shower area. The second master bedroom is on this level with large closets for all of your needs. This 2nd master bedroom has an outstanding view of the lake and Mt. Baldy standing guard over Grand and Shadow Mountain Lakes.

What’s not to love?

Large enough for plenty of personal space,
Intimate enough for a couple’s romantic retreat.

If it’s time for your getaway, some time to rest and recharge ... this quiet, peaceful vacation spot is just for you!

Beauty, Serenity ... Tug at your soul!
Grand Lake is the deepest natural lake in Colorado. High mountain runoff creates a lake that is clear and pristine. In the summer, explore the lake by boat, kayak, and even paddle boards.

{{{{ Please note that HOA rules prohibit use of the facility's marina and pool by renters. Also prohibited is the use and/or parking of any recreational vehicles, including campers, watercraft, snowmobiles, ATVs, or any of these vehicles' their trailers, empty or loaded, at or near the marina, in any of the facility's parking lots, or on Lakefront Road in front of the buildings. }}}}

Fish and hike along the waters. Horseback riding, ATVs, and cycling are just a few of the many activities available.

Experience the majesty of Rocky Mountain National Park.
It’s a 2-minute drive to the entrance of one of the most spectacular national parks in the country. Walk any of its 300 miles of hiking trails, enjoy nature’s wildlife ... and don’t be surprised to see some of that wildlife scampering across Grand Lake’s main street at dusk!

Winter Creates a Special Wonderland.
The “Snowmobile Capital of Colorado,” means over 125 miles of groomed trails to explore. Or enjoy Cross Country skiing, Ice Fishing, Snowshoeing, Nordic skiing or simply relax by the fireplace as the snow falls out your window.

We invite you to enjoy our home, full of year-round stunning natural beauty, and the opportunity to get back to all that nature has to offer.

In the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Grand Lake is the deepest natural lake in Colorado. With plenty of public docks, a swim beach, shopping, dining, live entertainment, activities in the city park including weekly family Bingo - Grand Lake Colorado is the quaint and quintessential mountain village.

Boardwalk storefronts pay homage to Grand Lake's western heritage. Shops, restaurants, and pubs line the main street and you just might find a horse or two 'parked' next to your car! Grand Lake comes to life at night with live entertainment at the local saloons.

Sunbathing to boat rentals ... The sandy beach at Grand Lake is a throwback to private resorts in the 40's. The kids will love it. And so will you!

Bring your boat or rent anything from canoes to kayaks to family-sized pontoon boats. The town's public docks make it easy to tie up and go into town for a few hours. Then it's back on the water for skiing, tubing or exploring every inch of shoreline.

Winter creates a special wonderland. Grand Lake is the 'Snowmobile Capital of Colorado' and that means over 125 miles of groomed trails to explore. Enjoy snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snowshoeing and more.

And just a couple of miles to the north is the west entrance to one of the nation's most spectacular national parks - the legendary Rocky Mountain National Park. Celebrating its 100 year anniversary, the park offers 350 miles of hiking and back-packing trails, 150 lakes and 476 miles of creeks and streams that feature Rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout, Mackinaw and Kokanee.

Whether fishing or hiking, the views in Rocky Mountain National Park are breathtaking - a feast for the eyes. With some of the most inspirational scenery anywhere in the world, the marvels of nature are yours at every step. A photographer's dream!

Winter Park Resort, Steamboat Springs, Keystone, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Crested Butte, even Vail and Aspen - some of the greatest skiing in the world are all within 2 hours from Grand Lake.

Live theater? How about a 10 minute stroll to Rocky Mountain Repertory Theater bringing Broadway musical hits from the Sound of Music to Footloose to the center stage in Grand Lake.

 

Owner info

About the owner: We are Rick and Chris and are 30-year residents of Colorado. Chris has worked in county and municipal government and Rick has been with a Denver area advertising agency. We were high-school sweethearts who grew up in a small town in Central Iowa. We traded one great place to live for one even better. 30 years does not make a native, but we kind of feel like we are. We love Colorado!

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake, CO, USA:
Our dream to own a property in Grand Lake began in 1984. Everything is relative and while the property values were much more affordable then compared to today, we were just not able to afford a vacation home at that time. But we held on to our dream for 30 years and now it has happened. So while we are new owners, we are planning to spend a lot of our retirement years enjoying our lakeside dream but until then - we are happy to offer this comfortable property to you!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our decision to buy this particular home was primarily due to the spectacular mountain and lake vistas available from the main balcony and the private master suite balcony. And the place is just so darn comfortable. Two king-sized master suites... each have awesome views... and the building has a giant 'front yard' with thick, green grass waiting for outdoor fun from bocce ball to croquet. It's our little paradise and we hope you will feel the same way.
