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!

Wondrful stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. The view is beautiful and the house & amenities are fantastic. The elevator was a great aid for our mother who has difficulty with stairs. Grand Lake is a charming town and the proximity to RMNP makes it an ideal place to stay. I would highly recommend this property to others.

This was an awesome home with great amenities and location. I have used VRBO on multiple previous vacations and often the pictures over represent the home. This was definitely not the case. The house was beautiful and very comfortable. It was close to the snowmobile trails and with a little more snow we could have taken off right from the house. We only went out to dinner one night because we didn't want to leave the home. The elevator was nice for our luggage and groceries. The jacuzzi was wonderful after a hard day of riding and the entire house very comfortable. If our snowmobile trip or a family trip leads me to Grand Lake again, I will definitely stay here! Thank you to the owner's for a prompt answer to our questions and making it easy for us to meet and collect the keys. Definitely 5 Star! Thanks for sharing your home!!!

Grand Lake Rental

  • 5 of 5
I would absolutely rate this with 10 stars. This mountain home was much more than we expected, surrounded by the Rocky Mtn Nat. Park, on the lake with breathtaking views all around this home.Our grandkids loved the bunkroom with 4 built in bunks with gorgeous furnishings, their parents had the 1rst floor master suite..total luxury and a hot tub on the deck for soaking under the stars.We enjoyed the firepit by the lake and some fishing right off the dock. This is a 3 story home and us old folks enjoyed the 3rd floor private master suite with flat screen tv, his and her baths, a fireplace and a library full of who done it books. Every morning we enjoyed the spectacular view of Mt Baldy from every balcony. did I mention this home has an elevator? This home was exceptionally clean, well stocked and has a wonderful and informative housekeeper. Great experience and we are planning a winter get away at this rentall

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What a beautiful restful week. This is the perfect place for a relaxing & fun vacation. Downtown Grand Lake is within walking distance. Great hiking trails near by. Down the street we discovered go-cart racing and horseback riding for the kids. Gourmet Kitchen, hot tub, and large screen tv. National park down the street. We saw herds of Elk and a couple of Moose were grazing in the fields. Looking forward to going back.
