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 cabin 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

come home!!!

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

ski trails.

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.!)

For starters, explore our info here, where you'll find answers to many of your questions, including availability on our up to date calendar. When you're ready to inquire or book, you only need to do it once - we will see it and respond shortly. Thanks!

Please come and enjoy “ Swimming Moose Lodge” and all that this lake front location has to offer!

About Steve and Jolene

Jolene, a Boulder Massage Therapist and Steve, specializing in Solar Referrals, have been enjoying the Grand Lake area for the past 30 years.

Steve and Jolene purchased this house in 2015

Why Steve and Jolene chose Northwest

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!!!

What makes this house unique

The “OH MY GOD” views off the deck. Canoe and Kayak access to the lake and islands right out your back door.

Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets that will inspire you.

Easy access to RMNP, Hot Sulphur Springs, boating, skiing, fishing, snowmobiling,

and so close to the charming town of Grand Lake.

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was amazing. The view from the house was breathtaking! The house was extremely clean and felt like home for the week. It was stocked full of everything you could think of. We enjoyed the wildlife, the town, and of course the kayaks. We will definitely be visiting again soon!

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very comfortable for 6 and well appointed. The view from the deck is spectacular. My grandson and family loved the kayaks. Saw several deer and fawns leaving the island one morning. We were only about 2 miles from my sister cabin so the location worked out great for our family reunion. Had a nice fire in the pit one evening with the whole family. Played golf in Granby. Made several trips into the park. Saw moose and elk along the road. My grandson was a happy camper! Every day something new!

Clean, comfortable, well-equipped! Great place for a family get away!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Swimming Moose Lodge. It was wonderful to have easy access to kayaks and so simple to launch right into the lake from the back yard. The deck is amazing, and the house itself is comfortable with plenty of room to cook, have family game night or watch a movie. Thanks, Steve and Jolene for sharing your home with us so generously!

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely stunning location, the accommodation was first class, the owners provided everything you could possibly want. We only had 3 days there but we would definitely go back. 'House in Paradise' is a perfect heading and the name 'Swimming Moose Lodge' is very apt as we saw Deer crossing the water in the evening and early morning. It was so peaceful on the outside deck, scenic mountain views and animal watching. Beautiful.
