TREMENDOUS LAKE & MOUNTAIN VIEWS, MINUTES FROM VILLAGE & RMNP

Grand Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Welcome to our family friendly Hilltop mountain home! We are just 2 miles outside of Rocky Mountain National Park and a mile and a half from the quaint Village of Grand Lake. Our ski-chalet style home offers the escape of a mountain get-away with the comforts of home. Enjoy the spectacular views of Shadow Mountain Lake, Grand Lake and the inspiring Indian Peaks from our large wrap-around deck or from the cozy, comfy couches in the spacious family room. Large picture windows throughout the main level allow for tremendous views no matter where you’re relaxing.

Our home is approximately 2,000 sq. feet and sits on two acres of beautiful land. We have two family rooms which make it nice for a larger family or 2 smaller ones. Cozy up to the fire, play board games, do puzzles or have a serious game of poker at the game table adjacent to the main floor family room & kitchen. There is plenty of room for everyone to do their relaxing.

Our bunkroom is fun for the kids and our two king-bed bedrooms up-stairs allow for parents privacy. The kitchen is roomy and easy to work in with everything you may need to prepare a great meal. Sit round our large dining room table or take it outside & BBQ and enjoy the beautiful mountain sunsets while dining outdoors.

Whether you are planning a good old-fashioned family vacation or a romantic mountain get-away, our home offers the perfect escape! We have a picturesque fire pit with large log seats and plenty of firewood to roast those marshmallows all night long.

Wildlife visit us often. Moose, elk, deer, foxes & a variety of birds are regular entertainment. Or, walk up the road and see if you can sneak-a-peek at the moose that linger in the willows around the pond just a short distance from the house. If you're up for more of an adventure drive into Rocky Mountain National Park where you are sure to see nature at it’s finest.

The Village of Grand Lake offers all the dining selections you could want, everything from fine dining to pizza & burgers. Or pack a picnic and enjoy the beach in town or rent kayaks and hunt out a place on Shadow Mountain Lake. There is everything from hiking, fishing, putt-putt, horseback riding, mountain biking, ATV’s, snowmobile, cross-country skiing, golfing, water-skiing, sailing, most likely anything that makes you happy on a mountain vacation. Or, how about just meandering the shops along the boardwalk and stopping for ice-cream & fudge!

Our location offers the perfect compromise to “getting away” but yet having it all! Everything you would want is available in the summer and for the winter vacation you can snowmobile right in town or get to downhill skiing at either Sol Vista in Granby or go a little further to the nationally known Winter Park & Mary Jane.

Year round, we know you will enjoy our Hilltop mountain home!

About Jennifer Banks

The Banks & Fenske families co-own. Susan & Jennifer are sisters & wanted to have a place that they could share lifetime memories with their families together. They love just hanging out & relaxing at the house, hiking, canoeing & picnicking on the shores of Shadow Mountain Lake. It wouldn't be a family gathering without a well thought out weekend of yummy food & dinners to prepare. Nothing says family like sitting around the dining room table enjoying a good meal together! Lance & David relax by chopping down trees & taking care of the land. Of course, there's always time to watch a baseball game! The kids love the laid-back feel of Grand Lake & love coming up to 'get-away' from the stresses of life. Family is number one with us & our mountain home helps us keep that a priority!

Jennifer Banks purchased this house in 2004

Why Jennifer Banks chose Grand Lake

We've been coming up to Grand Lake for nearly 25 years. David & his family have owned their family cabin for nearly 30. We love it that the area is so close to Rocky Mountain National Park & we love the fact that Grand Lake doesn't have a chain restaurant or coffee house. We love the beauty of of the lakes butting up to mountains & the charm of the board-walk village.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was perfect! The views were absolutely beautiful! Everything we needed to make our stay comfortable was was there! It was clean, cozy, the beds were comfortable, and it was very quiet and peaceful! We saw deer and moose on the property during our stay, rented a paddle boat, took hikes...such an incredible experience! We highly recommend a stay at this cabin if you need an easy, peaceful, yet potentially active get away, but with all the necessities at hand!

Stop Looking-This is It!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this very comfortable home for a summer Grand Lake getaway. We were thrilled with the accommodations! The house has killer views, a VERY convenient location, and easily slept 6 adults and 2 kids (my husband and I shared a room with our daughters). The owners are so gracious, and setting so lovely! We will most definitely return. You will not be disappointed!!!

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked inside we knew it was a great cabin and already felt at home. The cabin is well stocked, clean and the views were fabulous. We would not hesitate to stay here again, and I highly recommend this to any family or even two families. Great kitchen, deck, plenty of games for the kids and convenient to town. The owners are awesome to work with, great communication and quick to respond to questions. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home, it was a perfect vacation! We hope to stay with you again next time we visit!

Jun 2014 Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Great place to enjoy the Colorado Mountains. House is very well maintained and well stocked to make it like home. Simple and reasonable rules for house. Would definitely go back. Great weather allowed us to get out and enjoy kayaking, ATV'ing, fishing, hiking and leisurely walks through the small mountain town of Grand Lake Village. Lots of good restaurants in town--and ice cream shops! Outdoor fire pit was great for weenie roast and c'mores. Thanks for sharing your house.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind words about our cabin! It is so comfortable and an easy house to move in to for however long your stay is. Yes, the fire pit is one of our favorite activities too so I'm so glad you were able to enjoy it! We too love all the options for eating out, recreation in the area and of course, the ice-cream!!

We hope you'll be back!

Perfect stay in a perfect house.

  • 5 of 5
The Shadow Mountain House is spacious with an open floor plan and can sleep 7 people comfortably. We often travel to Grand Lake and stay in smaller cabins but this time we were with our daughter, son-in-law, and 3 year old granddaughter. The home was cozy, very comfortable, supplied with cooking utensils, wifi, TV and breathtaking views from the decks, one large one surrounding the main living area and one off the master bedroom. Very easy to get to and very convenient to the village of Grand Lake (about 5 minutes). Everything described in the listing was right on. We feel very comfortable recommending this house to all interested.
It was all so peaceful and comfortable one couldn't not help but relax. Also had magnificent views from every large window off the kitchen, dining area, living room, and game room.
Hope to return.

Awesome time in Grand Lake, CO

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four, and one dog, really enjoyed our time at Shadow Mountain House in Grand Lake. The house is easy to find, and located close to town and very close to the lake. The house was very comfortable, and had all amenities -- from cooking utensils and spices, to internet and TV. Great game area and games. Well decorated, very comfortable. We had a great time in the snow and a great time warming up in the cabin.
