Beautiful riverfront cabin that sleeps eight in beds. Conveniently located in the heart of Grand County, near golf, skiing and the National Forest. Approximately 15 miles north of Winter Park and 15 miles south of Grand Lake on scenic Highway 40. A green-built community, with 1/2 mile of private fishing on the trout-rich Fraser River. Four trout-stocked ponds on premises. Must have Colorado fishing license. Located on 36 acres with peak views, playground, heated pool (summer months only). Walking, snowshoeing, cross country ski trails. One -of-a-kind 4th of July community parade and fireworks.
Plenty of room for 3 adults and 4 kids - we loved having 3 bathrooms! The upstairs balcony was the adult retreat. I slept with the sliding glass door open part -way every night so that I could hear the rushing river below. (It was a rushing torrent, probably because of the melting snow - so we had to watch the children with hawk-eyes.) This was the annual grandkids trip. When I asked them where they wanted to go this year for their summer vacation, these East Texas kids told me that they wanted to play in the snow - So this Texas family headed to CO. There was plenty of snow in the upper elevations on the western side (closest to Granby) of RMNP. We played til exhausted or frozen every day, hiked the short trails, shopped in Estes Park (a 2 hour drive), and made s'mores in the outdoor fire area. We had a full moon - it was absolutely beautiful. We were here the 2nd week of June and we were the only family in the development. We made good use of the hot tub at night and did a lot of our cooking in the well equipped kitchen. We were happy to find a great grocery store in town and found two red-box video outlets (at the grocery and the 7-11)! The owners were always responsive to our questions. I would definitely recommend this rental.
We stayed for 3 nights in August; weather was absolutely perfect. Crisp cool nights; slept with the sliding door open in the master suite, no need for AC as the mornings were in the upper 40's! BeWay different from our NC hot weather. Your home was very clean; kitchen was well stocked for cooking. Great deck for drinking coffee in the morning and overlooking the distant mountains and the Fraser river right below. The master bedroom was very nice with a very comfortable bed. Would have been nice to have some shades on the window (for sleeping in a bit). The other 2 bedrooms had 2 double bunks, one with pink spreads for girls and one w/blue for boys. We had our 2 adult sons and their girlfriends so it was a perfect setup. Each room had a separate bath. Plenty of room for all. We had a great pizza dinner at Hernando's (Winter Place) and a great time riding horses at Snow Mtn Ranch -- Sombrero Stables. We spent most of our time at SMR and hiking in the surrounding mountains, visiting with my son who was working there for the summer.Found a great hike nearby, Columbine Lake -- about a 5 mile round trip. Not too difficult; but a beautiful alpine lake when you arrive. Great spot for a picnic. After 3 nights; we weren't ready to leave and were wishing we had booked it for the whole week. Lots of amenties -- great games/puzzles in the closet. While there was limited phone service (not much for AT&T, good for Verizon) and no cable -- it was nice to get away from it all; we had more time to chat, play cards and read. Very relaxing!! Highly recommended for families or couples.
We have had to opportunity to stay here both during the summer and winter months and it
is a wonderful place to stay. Being so close to the ski slopes in the winter and plenty of activities
in the summer, we were never bored. Horseback riding and river rafting was one of our favorite adventures. It is a beautiful home and the price is great. The listing description was accurate, the property was clean and well maintained. The owner was very prompt in getting back to us on all of our questions. Thank you for sharing your awesome home with us!
