The Wunder family lives in Boulder, CO. We are a husband, wife and a teen girl. We enjoy traveling, snow sports, contemporary art, fine wines and gourmet meals. We moved from Santa Fe to Boulder to take advantage of the outdoor sports and athletic mindset that prevails in Colorado and Boulder especially.

Tom Wunder purchased this lodge in 2009

Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP), wildlife, fishing, hiking, canoeing, skiing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, horse back riding, golfing, snow shoeing, lakes, and sledding are a few of the reasons we chose to build in Grand County. There is aggressive hiking for the adventurous, beautiful less strenuous hikes along the Colorado River, and, at dusk, some of the best animal watching on the planet. Grand Lake is an unpretentious western town with the deepest lake in Colorado.

The views transport you and it is easy to spend hours on the porch or looking out the windows watching the colors, the sky, and the animals come and go. This lodge realizes all the images we hold of what a 'lodge' is: the hearth, the warmth, the beauty, the serenity, the comfort, the quiet, nature finding her way into the home. The windows are abundant allowing guests to enjoy all the views.

Cooking at the lodge is a communal experience with the kitchen producing meals that everyone proudly takes ownership of--crepes are a lodge favorite. On the wraparound covered porch is a large grill and a picnic table for 14-16 people. There are plenty of rockers on the porch for everyone to sit outside--chipmunks and humming birds are regular visitors.

If puzzles and games strike your fancy, there are dozens from which to choose. If you are a film buff, we have a serious collection of DVD's you can enjoy on our large screen. A beautiful llama and alpaca farm can be visited across the road.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
You do the research, you pick a place, and you hope it turns out to be half as nice as it looks. Well this place was everything we had hoped it would be and then some. Any apprehension we may have had when booking the home quickly faded when dealing with the homeowners, Tom and Melinda Wunder.

We found them to be friendly, honest, and generous with their time and knowledge of the area. They enthusiastically answered every question we had and did exactly what they said they would do when they said they would do it. It was as though we were dealing with old friends from the very first contact to the moment we walked into the home to find a most warm and gracious welcome note on the countertop. Although three pages in length and full of any and all of the information we may have needed to manage the property, the essence of the note was “welcome home, what’s ours is yours, please enjoy.” And enjoy we did.

And the home, the Wunder Cabin, couldn’t have been more perfect. A beautifully appointed home, exquisitely finished and unbelievably comfortable. Quiet, secluded yet quite accessible, and with views from the home and wrap around deck that are nothing short of breathtaking. Perfect.

There were ten of us. Five couples from across the Midwest and Southwest, gathering as we do nearly every year to celebrate our friendships that go back to our college days circa 1967-73. We enjoyed food, wine, laughter, golf, hiking, shopping…and all from the comfort of our beautiful home, courtesy of the Wunders. We can’t thank you enough. It was all too PERFECT!

"AMAZING FAMILY VACATION"

"Amazing Family Vacation"
  • 5 of 5
This was the most amazing and beautiful home in every way. The views were breathtaking and I loved not having neighbors on top of us while we were outside on starry nights, enjoying our bonfires. The sauna was definitely an added bonus. Everything was so perfect, clean and very well stocked. My wife and I took our 5 children and parents for their 56th wedding anniversary. Mr. Wunder was out of town but made sure the house manager and another young lady were able to greet us and show us all around the home. It is an incredible drive through Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park and takes 1 1/2 hours to arrive in Estes Park. We took a day trip to Colorado Springs to see Pikes Peak Railway and The Garden of the Gods. Although it was a 3 hour trip one way, it was well worth the trip. We drove from Tampa, Fla. (31 hours, in 3 days), but it was well worth the drive. We added to a collection of brochures and literature on the kitchen counter of things to do in the area. The whole family loved the ATV's from a company we rented from called, ”On the Trails". We saw an abundance of wildlife at the cabin and all in the park, which the south entrance is only 15 minutes north. I only wish Wunderview wasn't so far away, we wouldn't hesitate to return.

A GEM FOR VRBO

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent 4 nights at Wonderview and this was the top lodge we have experienced by far. The place is very clean, well appointed furniture, top of the line beds for sleeping which is not typical, chef kitchen with all top of the line cooking ware, close to winter park but even closer to the national park and most of all hot sulphur springs. We seek new properties and the family did a fantastic job with the design and interior design. You will not be let down.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT FOR LARGE GROUPS

  • 5 of 5
7 of us (including 3 couples) rented Wunderview for a weeklong reunion, and loved it. My review is going to be about all the practical things, since everyone else has already gushed at length about the incredible views, the gorgeous setting, and the proximity to pretty much anything nature-related you could want to do.

Wunderview has lots of bathrooms, and the pictures don't do its size justice. Each room is huge, so your whole family/group of weirdos can spontaneously gather just about anywhere. Comfortably. And then stay there playing board games until dinner time, if they want. And if someone has to go to the bathroom, they can go use their own bathroom and no one ever has to feel awkward. The kitchen is enormous, so if every single one of you feels the need to be a cook, you can do so with limited foot-stepping.
The grocery store is close enough for emergency s'mores-chocolate trips. This is really the best way to have a 'get away from it all' vacation without any of the inconvenience of actually being away from it all.
And if you can drag yourself out of bed in time, the sunrise is unbelievable.

WUNDERVIEW IS WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Our recent stay was amazing! The house has every amenity and is very cozy and spacious. We especially loved the view, the wrap around porch, the fireplace, the large dining tables, the well stocked kitchen and the comfortable beds. The heated floors were a neat touch this winter. We had fun with the sleds and disks. The wildlife was great to watch. We had kids ages 10-18 who had plenty of fun with the movies, games, puzzles and exploring the outdoors. We explored the area by skiing Granby Ranch, tubing in Fraser and the Nordic center, visiting the YMCA for skating, sleigh rides and more. You won't find a nicer house than this for your next vacation.

"WUNDER-VIEW" - GREAT VACATION HOME

"Wunder-view" - Great vacation home
  • 5 of 5
We had 3 families and a total of 14 people stay in the house during the kids Spring Break. From our families to yours, we thank you so much! We love your awesome cabin, it had just the right touch! Upon entering the cabin, our kids were in a daze: the home, the view—we were all amazed. We had three ten year olds, three thirteen year olds, and two high schoolers. Your games, your DVDs, your puzzles were great. The 1000 piece scattered puzzle is now complete. We left it on the table all nice and neat. It brought our three families together on a snowy day. The we went outside for a little sledding and snowball play. The amenities in your home are great. The owner hospitality was incredible. He sent us several pages of activity suggestions, which was extremely helpful. We are six very happy parents. Thank you!!

Notes:
Breathtaking views of the continental divide, adjacent to BLM land, great wildlife viewing, original contemporary art throughout home, log structure is hand-hewn, fantastic gourmet kitchen with commercial appliances, European glass showers, radiant heat, best views in Grand County! The nearest property is about 1/3-1/2 mile away--Wunder-view is not in a subdivision where there are many homes: 25 acre parcels is the average lot size.
