Overview

Grand Lake House Rental Photos and Description

Full Lakeview House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Areas, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

JUST IN: New 5 STAR executive home with UNMATCHED LAKE, NEVER SUMMER WILDERNESS AND ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK VIEWS AND ACCESS is now available as a vacation rental. Nearby Trail Ridge Marina rents sport/power and pontoon boats so you can get out and enjoy the water.

Cruise between Shadow Mountain Lake and Grand Lake through the canal to enjoy shopping, dinner and ice cream in town. Go out to the islands for the day in the cool shade and set up a picnic spot near easy spots for young children to play in the water. Even Moose have been seen resting on the islands and of course they frequent the local shore seen right from the deck of this home.

Maximize your time outdoors on the HUGE deck without missing a beat as you watch the boats and skiers go by. Spend a lazy afternoon lounging while the kids make s'mores over our old-fashioned fire pit or have some family competition on the Bocci Court. Hike right from the house across the dam into RMNP and up to the fire tower, about a 3 to 4 hour hike up, which will give you views across all 3 major lakes and for miles beyond. There is no better place to view the 4th of July fireworks than from the serene waters of Grand Lake.

Inside, enjoy the amenities you might expect to find in a home of this quality including a full gourmet kitchen with a six burner Wolf gas range, double Jenn-Aire ovens and Jenn-Aire refrigerator with freezer and ice-maker and GE Monogram microwave oven ... all stainless of course.

Tired from your hike? Relax in front of the great room open gas log fireplace with floor to ceiling stone work or better yet, enjoy the steam shower or air-jet tub in the main floor master bedroom. Game on? Watch it on the Panasonic 60' LCD HDTV in the great room or on the 47' HDTV in the family room while waiting to play the winner on the tournament quality pool table.

Upstairs are two additional bedroom suites with their own bathrooms and each with a ceiling fan. The lower level has a 4th large bedroom with a king size bed and a bunk bed adjacent to the lower level full bathroom. Music Anyone? For those who know how to play there is a professional Yamaha Baby Grand Piano reserved for accomplished musicians only. For novices and children there is a keyboard for them to enjoy playing down in the family room.

We are just minutes from the town of Grand Lake and the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake provides a classic 'old west' town ambiance and fun for the whole family. From there you can enjoy the shops, restaurants, mini-golf, guided horseback riding, guided and unguided snowmobile and ATV rentals, go-carts, bumper boats and more.

Rocky Mountain National Park is home to an abundant wildlife population including elk, deer, moose, bears, porcupines and foxes (many of these pass through the property as well). Miles of hiking and snowshoeing trails are accessible right from the home.

Want to know more....call me or email and I will be delighted to answer any questions and make recommendations.

About Joe Penta

We came to Colorado in 1995 from Sydney, Australia and Boston, MA where we are originally from. We bought our original Grand Lake vacation home in 2000 which provided many years of enjoyment(see 184930). We moved up full time a few years ago and built this brand new home at the southern end of Shadow Mountain Lake in 2008 and now are making that home available for vacation rentals since much of our time again is required down in Denver. We hope you will enjoy the peace and serenity of this special place as much as we do.

Joe Penta purchased this house in 2008

Why Joe Penta chose Grand Lake

The lake view and access from this home is perfect. I have yet to see a better view than this home offers and I am a real estate agent and have seen them all. You can fish, hunt, hike, boat and enjoy any other recreational activity from this home. I fish the lake and adjoining streams and hunt in the national forest down the road. You can hike across the dam at the end of the lake into Rocky Mountain National Park and up to the fire tower which is about a 3-4 hour hike up and allows you to see all of the 3 lakes and miles beyond.

What makes this house unique

Boating, Wave Running, Wake Boarding, Fishing, Hunting, Hiking, Water Skiing, Billiards, Bocci or just sitting on the deck or in the living room and enjoying the views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We're so thankful for this time together in your beautiful home! If it were mine I would never leave! Watching the enormous amount of birds fly in to snack with the amazing view of God's Creatioin in the back drop was better than any movie! WOW! It snowed some which made the view even prettier (if that's possible). The kitchen, especially for me, a former restaurant owner, was a JOY to cook for my family & friends in.

THANK YOU, for providing this opportunity for us, doesn't cover God Bless, M & S family's

Thanksgiving Holiday Stay 2014

  • 5 of 5
Joe,

From our family to yours, thank you for sharing your lovely Grand Lake home. The festive holiday touches throughout the house created a magical atmosphere. From the Christmas tree in the loft to the colorful outdoor lights, the decor was beautiful. The view from the deck is amazing. We took great pictures for family Christmas cards with snow covered mountains in the background.

The house is well stocked from cooking utensils to extra blankets and pillows. If you forget something, chances are you will find it in the home. Whether you want to spend your entire stay at the house or explore the outdoors and the town of Grand Lake, this property is the perfect choice. Chances are we will be returning to make some more fabulous memories.

Sincerely,
J&L and Family

Beautiful Mountain Home and Great Weather!

  • 5 of 5
This house was awesome! We had a group of 14 friends (including couples and kids) up for a long weekend stay and everyone had a fantastic time. The house is beautiful and the view and closeness of the lake made it even better. Members of our group enjoyed morning runs along the lake and into Rocky Mountain National Park, visiting downtown Grand Lake for shopping and playground time, and watching football and movies on the big screen. The weather was gorgeous each day and we loved getting to spend some time outside enjoying the area.

The house was pristine and everyone had plenty of space and privacy from the group. The kitchen was great for making large meals. And again, the view of the lake is incredible!

Thank you for sharing your mountain home. We will definitely be back!

September in the Rockies

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at your home in Grand Lake. Other extended family members had houses in the same area, one across the street and one below on the lake. We had lovely weather for our niece's wedding and we all enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Your house may be the best equipped home we have ever rented. We took good care of your place and left some beer and wine behind because we were all flying home. Your honor jar in the pantry was such a good idea.
Thanks again.

Great house for friends and family

  • 5 of 5
We had three couples and three kids between us. The house was a joy with a beautiful view. We walked around the area and rented a boat at the nearby marina. The kitchen is great for feeding groups.
