WELCOME TO “ SWIMMING MOOSE LODGE”!
Come and join our "family" of happy guests any time of the year.
Ahhhhh.......Vacation time high in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. This Shadow Mountain Lake front home offers you that perfect “Getaway” you've always dreamed of.
Whether you're looking for a quiet retreat in a pristine natural setting or that quality vacation fun
time with family and friends, this could be your “Slice of Heaven.”
Relax and unwind....... This cozy and charming house is nestled on the sparkling shores of
Shadow Mountain Lake where the headwaters of the Colorado River join with it. You can
enjoy a relaxing time on the spacious deck with breathtaking views of the pristine islands,
white pelicans and majestic Shadow Mountain as your back drop. You know you have truly
Enjoy a serene and magical canoe or kayak ( 3 kayaks, 2 canoes, and a paddle boat are included for your use) trip into the island area to view the resident
osprey and eagles. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to see the elusive “Swimming Moose”!!!
If fishing is your thing, we hear it is excellent in this area. Wade out into the shallow waters or take your rig to the nearby boat launch for a day on both Shadow Mountain and Grand Lake. They join together through a channel on the other end of the lake. If it's river fishing you prefer, we have that too. Hopefully you will be enjoying a fresh catch dinner! Let us know how you did!
Winter time is just as wonderful as the summer months. We offer the world renowned Winter Park
ski area only 40 minutes away as well as Granby Ranch ski area only a 20 minute drive. Out the back
door, cross country skiing on the frozen lake is a great way to warm up your day and get that daily
exercise. Or head over to YMCA's Snow Mountain Ranch for a day on the groomed cross country
Grand Lake is known as the “Snowmobile Capital of Colorado” with over 100 miles of trails
in the Grand Lake area alone. So gear up and head out to play in the Colorado powder.
Then, after a day of fun, you may want to stop in at the nearby “Hot Sulphur Mineral Springs”
spa and resort. They offer 20 mineral pools of warm healing water, ranging from 98 to 112
degrees. This scenic 25 minute drive is well worth your time.
The beautiful and quaint resort town of Grand Lake is only 3 miles away and offers great restaurants,
gift shops, grocery stores, gas, miniature golf, bowling, and much more,
Continuing down the road from the town of Grand Lake just 2 more miles away, you will find the
entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, another icon of incredible beauty and beyond belief
scenery and trails. ( Another great place to view moose elk and deer.!)

Why Steve and Jolene chose Grand Lake
We have loved coming up here to camp, hike, canoe and soak in the hot springs whenever we would have a chance to get away from the busy city life. It is a place where we can truly relax, unwind and connect with the natural world. We have always dreamed of owning a home on the lake and our dream came true with the purchase of this lovely and cozy house. Now, we get to share this magical place with people like you as well as use it for our own personal getaways! Perfect..........Please come and enjoy!!!

Clean, cozy and everything we hoped for!
This was a beautiful and well cared for property that allowed us to take a break from the chaos of everyday life. We could tell that the owners take pride in their property and the experience you have while staying there. The owner even called ahead of time to be sure that I knew the lake would not be thawed (since I mentioned boating as part of our getaway). We will certainly try to stay here again during the summer!
Great cozy place to relax and enjoy the beautiful area all year around!
We had a great weekend in the area. Very close to Great Lake and to Winter Park. Great for families or couples all year around.
Amazing lakeside property !!
Visited here with my family of 4 and absolutely loved it. Plenty of space and amenities.
Had a fantastic stay!
The house is so cute and the view is awesome! Thank you for letting us stay at your home!
Cozy and beautiful views.
These owners take pride in their home. It was very clean, well stocked, and it had beautiful views.
I would recommend it.
Perfect house/perfect location
Stayed the week of Christmas 2017. The house was fantastic. The owners had gone up before our stay and decorated it for xmas for us which really made it special. The house was exceptionally clean and well furnished. The owner even called to check on us and offered to have someone come by and shovel the snow if we needed it. You could not have a better location to town, skiing, snow activities and the lake itself. We would definitely stay there again.
One of the gems of the Rockies, ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK is just 5 Miles away: hiking, skiing, climbing, fishing, moose. elk, deer, peaceful nature. A drive over Trail Ridge Road to Estes Park, the highest continuous auto road in the US, is a must.
