  • Tranquil

    "We have a family of 6 so it's not always easy to find affordable places to stay. This far exceeded our expectations. Was well kept, quiet, and the fully stocked kitchen was great. We loved sitting out on the porch at night and taking in the scenery. With a 9, 10, 12, and 13 year old this place was exactly what we wanted with our trip. There's no wifi so it forced the kids to put down the electronics and enjoy each other and the outdoors around us. We will definitely be looking to stay here again when we make our next trip! Big bonus seeing that Pat and Spike have roots in Iowa where we are from, so really enjoyed doing business with a fellow Iowan."

  • Great Weekend Getaway with Friends

    "This is the third year in a row we (four couples) have rented through Home Away, and we all agree this was the best rental by far. Mornings were spent on the deck enjoying the view of Shadow Mountain Lake, and watching the antics of the hummingbirds as they fought for the nectar in the feeder. We got some great pictures of them. We took a tour of Grand Lake for a very reasonable $20 / person for one hour - which was enough to get our bearings. So the next day we rented a pontoon boat and toured both Grand and Shadow Mountain lakes on our own. We pulled into Grand Lake (the town) with our pontoon and walked to the ice cream shop for some homemade ice cream. At this time of year (July), it is very busy, so if you don't like standing in lines, I would pass this one by. We hiked a very easy .3 miles up to Adams Falls, which was worth the walk. We are all in our 50's or up, and the walk was easy for all who attempted it. We also did the tourist thing in Grand Lake, and have the t-shirts to show for our efforts. The one thing you should not miss in Grand Lake is the Fat Cat café. They only serve breakfast, and are only open from 7-1 daily (closed Tuesdays), but the food is out of this world good. Five stars all around. On the weekends Fat Cat offers only the buffet, but like no buffet you have ever had - pies of every type, real English scones (yum!), and biscuits to die for. I am ready to go back for more! Caution though: it is a very small café. Plan to wait, and plan to get very friendly with your neighbors. Chair bumping is the norm here. We were all thrilled to see four moose during our stay - two of them right along the lake shore in front of the house. We also watched the Osprey hunting for fish on the lake, and watched the Canadian Geese make their daily sojourn down to the lake to feed for the day. Only on the last day did we see any other wildlife, which happened to be a young fox and a nice buck. We set our standards based on past experiences: queen or better beds, and a bathroom for every couple - this ticked all the boxes for us, and bonus! Every bedroom had its own in suite bathroom. The rooms were far apart, so we always felt we could have our 'alone' time if we needed it. The kitchen was also well equipped, though I admit we cooked most of our meals on the grill. We can honestly say this has been the best vacation so far, and we would recommend this luxurious home to our friends."

  • Wonderful condo!

    "The condo exceeded our expectations. It was extremely clean and furnished nicely and everything you could need to cook and enjoy meals was in the kitchen. A true home away from home,. The view made you never want to leave. The weather was wet and cool but that was perfect animal viewing weather. Moose, elk, deer, and lots of elk babies, marmots. etc. AMAZING! Perfect vacation. We would definitely stay here again."

  • cute condo

    "We arrived about 25 minutes before the 3pm check in and the housekeeper had not shown up. I called the owner and he was quick to respond back to me and get the problem solved, but still did not get in the condo until about 6 pm. That is the only negative thing I have to say, and really no fault of the owner. Once in the condo it is very comfortable, it was clean, and very tastefully decorated. Everything in good working order. The condo is very close to town, the lakes, and RMNP. We had 2 couples and it was perfect for our stay. I noticed in a closet they had toys for families with small children. I highly recommend staying on the Grand Lake side. It is much quieter, less traffic, the town is very cute and has several good places to eat. The elk in the park were really active. We really wanted to see a moose but no luck. We went in October 2016."
