About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6), huge patio

Escape the city and the heat. Just a half of tank of gas away from the Front Range, we are located on Columbine Lake two miles from historic Grand Lake, Colorado, with views of Never Summer Range. We are nestled outside the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park so you might wake up to a moose browsing nearby.

We are proud of our waterfront octagon home and hope you will enjoy the décor, the breathtaking views of the lake, and the fabulous patio for outdoor entertaining and panoramic decks. We are pleased to offer a non-smoking experience.

We are in the middle of White River National Forest and the fire hazard can be extremely dangerous. Please comply with fire restrictions and regulations.

Parking is limited. No more than three vehicles maximum No on-road parking allowed.

No smoking . Pets with approval and deposit.

Summer days can be filled with hiking, biking, golf, and exploring the park. OR read a book on the dock and enjoy lunch on the patio under the pines. Recreational opportunities abound! HOA rules apply.

Autumn highlights include elk rutting season in Rocky Mountain National Park and scenic drives with spectacular photo opportunities on the 34 mile trip over historic Trail Ridge Road.

In the winter, 200 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and sledding are also available! Or relax fireside with hot cocoa and a board game.

Nearby Grand Lake has a full slate of seasonal activities: special events, shopping (do not miss Humphrey;s Cabin Fever), dining, fishing, boating, theatre productions, mini golf.

Enjoy your stay!

The Treehouse, Lakefront Property on Columbine Lake
average rating of 3.75 based on 4 reviews
Bemus Point, NY


  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Treehouse at least 6 times over the last 4 years, and it holds the very best memories for me and my family. The owner goes above and beyond to make our stay perfect. We packed the house for my daughters wedding that was held at the Grand Lake Lodge, and the owner added extra fall decorations to make our weekend perfect. We live in Western NY and have gathered our kids, and a few extras that show up at times, for a perfect escape to the mountains. The outside patio is perfect for kicking back in the afternoon and enjoying a fire in the evening, while looking out over the lake. I have an enlarged picture taken off the top deck on a fall morning hanging in my home, this is how special this wonderful lakefront home is to me!

Perfect cocktail location!

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect weekend home for my family. "The Treehouse" is an apt name; you are situated above the lake with spectacular views. The three levels worked great to give some space to my teenagers. While the views from the deck and the patio were breathtaking, there were enough trees to offer privacy. The kitchen was small, but perfectly adequate for our vacation needs. The decorating was very welcoming and we felt right at home. We were able to maintain a very comfortable temperature by closing the reflective shades during the heat of the day. Only two things to consider: I would not recommend this house unless you are reasonably fit as the trek up and down the circular stairs can be as "breathtaking" as the views and we had difficulties with the lock box. But Jan was very helpful and responsive to all of our needs and we will definitely come again!

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the Tree House, each time has been wonderful. This was the perfect place for our daughters wedding party to prepare and the outside patio was beautiful for pictures. Jan had gathered up some beautiful fall arrangements to add to the setting for some of the best wedding pictures I have ever seen! I highly recommend this beautiful house to all! The area is great for hiking and the patio is best enjoyed with a cup of coffee on a brisk morning or a glass of wine by the firepit in the evening!
