What a magical trip and magical house

  • 5 of 5
The property was everything in the pictures and more. the multi storey house had great heating, was very clean, huge kitchen, big screen tv and was literally right on the lake. The spa was a nice touch, especially when the snow is coming down. I would stay here again and our hosts provided good directions to get there also. 5/5

LOVELY stay!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough wonderful things about my stay in Grand Lake at Joann & David's beautiful home. I was looking for a very peaceful place to spend my 29th birthday and this fit the bill perfectly. Location wise, you are literally at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, and directly on the lake.

The master suite is the entire third floor and no expense was spared in the build of this home. From the radiant heating, gourmet kitchen with double fridges and Viking cooktop, infrafred outdoor grill, amazing big screen TV, to the deck views, I just cannot say enough. I loved every minute of our stay, and the elevator made it a breeze to load in groceries and bags from the ground floor up to the other levels. Can't wait to get back for another visit!

White Christmas for an Aussie family!

  • 5 of 5
This place was awesome! We travelled from Australia to spend Christmas with friends from Denver, CO and loved staying here. Plenty of room for our two families, great views over the lake and towards the mountainds, close to amenities in town and our kids loved the snow. Overall a perfect location for our travel plans and wish we could spend Christmas here every year - almost worth the 9,000 miles each way!

Awesome house and location

  • 4 of 5
My wife, our doggy and myself had a wonderful 4 nights in this house. Very cozy and comfortable and romantic. Our only regret was coming so late in the year, as we woke up to 5 inches of snow on our first day, which put a bit of a dent on our fishing and hiking plans. We'll hopefully be back in the summer!
