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,

scenery and trails. ( Another great place to view moose elk and deer.!)
