Why Beverly chose Grand Lake
We were looking for a sailboat when we happened upon this wonderful old log cabin that had just been listed for sale. We couldn't resist the view of the Continental Divide, the proximity to Lake Granby, the wonderful natural vegetative lot, the log cabin's room layout and large red brick wood burning fireplace! It reminded us of the Lincoln Log cabins we built as children. Craig and I turned to each other and said, 'We need to put an offer on this.' We did, and the rest is history!
What makes this cabin unique
We love that our log cabin is a 'real' vintage full log cabin and has all the character that goes with it, yet it has modern conveniences. All natural vegetation (like RMNP) surroundings on our property that goes from the dirt road in the front to the dead road in the back of our cabin. Lots of wildflowers and shrubs and wildlife too.
We love to ski at Winter Park and Mary Jane and drive back to the cabin in no time with no traffic--all the traffic is going in the other direction toward Denver! We also enjoy the nearness of all the year round special activities the Town of Grand Lake has like the Winter Carnival, Buffalo Weekend, Arts & Crafts, Antique Wooden Boat show, Fall Festival and Fireworks on the 4th of July and again on New Year's Eve, but are so happy to be able to leave the hub-bub and drive 4 miles away to our peaceful dead end street looking out at the wildlife, lake and Rocky Mountains. We enjoy the full moon cross country ski at Grand Lake Touring Center in January and February. We enjoy cross-country skiing there during the day as they even have a trail where a person can cross country ski with their dogs--our grand-dog, Loki, loves to do that! We enjoy lying on the hammock day and night, relaxing or stargazing even if we have to get bundled up! We love to go to Rocky Mountain National Park and take their free guided hikes and things like photography classes. In the winter, we like to explore the trails on our snowshoes too. In the fall hearing the elk bugling is very special. We love it when the aspen trees turn gold in front of our cabin in the fall. Too much to tell. Very, very serene and peaceful. Bev's favorite place on earth is here at this cabin. She has read that the best Feng Shui is on a mountain near a lake, maybe that explains it. Great Rocky Mountain water from the tap and fresh air to breath in! There is even a yoga studio about a mile away, but I do keep a yoga mat for guests and my own use at the cabin. 'HEAVEN!' as one guest put it.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for sharing your great mountain home with us. It was quiet and perfect for our family get together. We loved the east access to Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Lake. Your place was so much more appropriate for us than more commercial rental properties. We have happy memories. Columbus, Ohio
