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.
