About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Perfect for watching July 4th or New Year's fireworks right from the house, deck and hot tub! Our secluded tri-level home situated on 3 wooded acres is conveniently located right outside of downtown main street with unobstructed views of Grand Lake. This 2300 sq. ft. home, called 'The Treehouse' is nestled along side the mountain bordering the Rocky Mountain National Park.

Every room in this house has a view! There is a wrap-around deck with a 6-person hot tub overlooking the lake on the lower level. We have provided all the comforts of home with nice upscale mountain furnishings and beautiful art from many local artists.

All of our linens are of the finest quality including down pillows & comforters and bamboo sheets for all beds. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook fabulous meals including spices, condiments, crock pot, blender, food name it.

We have high speed wireless internet, Dish satellite DVR's with premium movie and music channels, 5 flat screen TV's, and free long distance and games. We keep the house well stocked for convenience with toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, tinfoil, tupperware, laundry soap, shampoo/conditioner, spices, condiments and cooking ingredients to name a few.

To get to the entrance of the Treehouse, you must walk up 2 flights of stairs to get to the front door which puts you at the middle level. Walking down 1 flight of stairs puts you at the lower living area with the gas fireplace and access to the wrap around deck outside with seating/table, a gas BBQ and 6-person hot tub.

The middle level contains the dining room/bar, sitting area, kitchen, washer/dryer and a king size master bedroom with full bath.

Up one flight of stairs is the loft which has a large sectional couch that can fold out to a queen size bed if needed, one king size room with balcony overlooking the lake, one queen size room with mountain view, and a shared large bathroom with a jacuzzi tub.

We are within 10 minutes walking distance (less than one mile) to the end of Portal Road where the boat launch/lake access area is and also access to miles of hiking trails into the Rocky Mountain National Forest. In the opposite direction, we are located within 10-15 minutes walking distance (also 1 mile) to downtown Grand Lake with access to many restaurants and shops. By car you are about 2 minutes away in either direction.

In the winter, the rate is $50 more to cover heating costs, daily snow plowing of driveway as necessary, check-in stair and deck snow removal.

About Louise Tower

My husband and his brother built this home originally in 1980. The property has been in their family since before either of them were born. Grand Lake was always a vacation spot growing up having owned and sold other properties.

We live in Hawaii and only go there for a change of seasons in the winter months, staying in our home on and off throughout the whole snowy season.

Louise Tower purchased this house in 1980

Why Louise Tower chose Grand Lake

This property was purchased in 1940 by parents and then built on in 1980. This home is mostly only rented for three months during the summer.

What makes this house unique

Solitude, peace and quiet. Cool weather, down home friendly folks who live there all year long.

Perfect mountain house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Louise’s place. When we arrive, it was super clean and inviting. The location up on a hill overlooked the lake and the view from the hot tub was amazing during sunset. Despite being in a different time zone, Louise quickly responded to any questions I had. Will definitely stay here again!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was spacious and lovely! The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen well supplied with all the amenities (spices, blender, cutting boards, etc) The view is amazing and the hot tub made for relaxing evenings! The property manager was very prompt in replying to a question we had. I would highly recommend this house.

The only item I would note it is that currently (as of June 2018) the upper driveway that goes to the front door can not be used. So the only way into the house is up a very tall staircase to the rear door. It is really not an issue unless you have problems with stairs or being able to carry all your suitcases up the stairs. But if you can do that, it is totally worth it!

Enjoyed the stay!

  • 4 of 5

It’s a nicely stocked cabin - only issues were heat / ac was not very effective and had sort of chemically smell when we got to the cabin. The cabin’s location is quite good with mostly unobstructed view of the lake. Communication with owner about stay and access was pretty seamless

The tree house was a beautiful stay for our weekend in Colorado.

  • 5 of 5

This property provided everything we needed and then some. The home has a cozy feeling right as you walk in. Everything is up to date and beautiful. The hot tub was a fantastic luxury over looking a gorgeous view of Grand Lake. We did not adventure far from our cozy cabin because we didn't need to. A short distance up the road is Adams Falls which provided an amazing nature hike. This home provided the perfect weekend for relaxing and enjoying the great views Colorado has to offer. The owners have wonderful hospitality and the home was stocked beyond believe with whatever we needed! It was extremely helpful when we forgot a spice or condiment. This was definitely an unforgettable stay. We plan to revisit the tree house at Grand Lake someday.

The perfect location at the edge of the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful hillside home overlooking Grand Lake; fabulous sunset views over the lake from the hot tub and the outside dining table on the large deck of the house.And once the sun set, millions upon millions of stars. With the telescope our son brought we saw Saturn and its rings and Jupiter and four of its moons all in a row. Brilliant star gazing indeed!

To be noted, this is one of the nicest hot tubs we have ever encountered in a rental property!

The home had plenty of space for dining, reading, games etc. A wonderfully equipped kitchen with condiments and spices galore.

Improvements: not much , more kitchen towels and better pot holders. Those using the upstairs bathroom need to very careful as it is very easy to slip getting in and out of the tub. Some well placed grab bars would be most helpful.

The owner and the property manager were responsive and helpful.

Also, this home is nicely located above the inviting , friendly small town of Grand Lake.
