Welcome to our Grand Lake Retreat, a luxury home on the scenic shores of Shadow Mountain Lake (which connects via a channel to Grand Lake) and within convenient walking distance to Grand Lake’s quaint downtown.
The home is 4,400 square feet and will comfortably sleep 14-20 people in 5 bedrooms. Upstairs is an expansive master suite with a sitting area with fireplace and a spectacular bathroom with jacuzzi and steam shower. Down the hall is an office with queen sleeper sofa and full bathroom. The kitchen and main living area is also on this floor. Downstairs are three bedrooms along with a family room and game area. There is a kid’s room with a bunk bed and queen bed that has a full bathroom. There’s a bedroom with two queen beds and a full bath. The 5th bedroom has a queen bed and bathroom that’s shared with the family room area.
The main entertaining space has a chef’s kitchen that opens up to a spectacular great room with large windows that will allow you to enjoy picturesque views of Shadow Mountain Lake and Rocky Mountain National Forest. The kitchen is equipped with a Wolf oven, two Sub Zero refrigerators, a 6 burner gas stove. The dining room has a table that accommodates 14 people, and the bar comfortably seats an additional 6 people. There is also an outdoor patio outside the dining room that has great lake and mountain views.
There is a walk out basement that has another entertainment area that has a Sony 70” 4K TV for ultraHD movie watching, a game table and a granite bar area with fridge, sink, microwave. In addition to a very comfortable and large sectional, there is a queen size sleeper sofa. The walk out basement leads to a top of the line hot tub that comfortably accommodates 9 people.
The home is part of a five home community that shares a 5-boat boathouse with a community ‘party deck’ floating above the lake. There is also a short-term dock for dropping off or picking up guests, but the dock is not intended for long-term boat use. Additionally, there is also a large fire pit and picnic area. While these amenities are available for our guests, we ask renters to be respectful of the space and not have wild parties or leave trash that would jeopardize our relationship with the other residents in the community.
There is a three car garage, along with ample storage space (and for kids – a little fort area where we’ve set up toys and a kids’ table). Given that our grandkids visit frequently, we have games and many infant supplies (pack and play, high chair, toys, diaper pail, etc.).
The home flows very nicely and has top of the line finishes. Please let me know if you’d like additional information.
We have 7 kids and 11 grandkids. We live in Denver where Jan is a realtor and Larry does custom audio video installations (which will show when you stay at our home)
Larry Page purchased this house in 2014
We wanted a place we could get together as a family (or at least with the grandkids) and build family memories. We rented homes on the lake several times, but wanted one for ourselves that had all the amenities and had room for all the family. A hot tub was a must, and that's hard to find in Grand Lake.
Easy walk to the ice cream store in town or shopping
Cons. Do not leave anything behind because even after owner was contacted items were not sent to us
This is such a beatific place and a great location with spectacular views !
We used this home as our "base" for a family reunion. Those of us staying at the house, which included small children, enjoyed the comfortable accommodations and beautiful view of Shadow Mountain Lake. The close proximity to town allowed family members to walk or drive to Grand Lake to shop or visit other family members.
The well-appointed kitchen enabled us to prepare and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner for 25-30 people each day of our stay. We loved hanging out on the patio and using the gas grill as well as the spa on the cool summer nights. Loved having a washer and dryer upstairs and downstairs as well as the internal vacuum system for easy clean-up.
Our group included older (80 yrs.+) individuals and they could manage outdoor stairs leading into the house, as well as the house was "safe" for our youngest, 19 months old.
The owner was most responsive to questions before and during our stay. The property comes with instructions on how to manipulate sound system, TV's and Internet.
We loved our stay and would HIGHLY recommend this home.
Great for families!
Very nice home with great amenities. Accommodated our large group well. Well equipped kitchen. Part of a development of five really nice homes on the lake front. Easy access to town. The the owner was very helpful however we felt a bit harried on the day we were to check out - I guess he was in a hurry to get the place ready for the next visitors. We got out in time :-) All-in-all an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended the home and the town. Would love to visit again.
This home was the ideal location for our church leadership retreat. The spacious great room, the sizable dinner table, and the numerous bedrooms make this place perfect for both large families and groups. Watching the sun rise over Shadow Mountain Lake was a definite highlight. There is great access to both hiking trails and local shops. We look forward to staying here again in the future.
This is a great home for a family and it had everything that we needed. The room with the bunk beds was a real bonus for the kids. It is a very easy walk to town, for shopping and a morning coffee at the local coffee shop. I would recommend this home to a anyone wanting to go to Grand Lake.
