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!

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

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 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.

BREATHTAKING VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful few days at Shadow Mountain house! The snow was a beautiful surprise and the view of the lake and mountains beyond was breathtaking. We were close enough to Rocky Mt National Forest enjoy a hike and found the town
Interesting for exploring and adequate for purchasing souvenirs. The house was quite comfortable. We enjoyed the fireplace, board games and a couple of movies. The kitchen was well supplied for cooking and the bedrooms roomy and comfortable. I would certainly recommend this rental to anyone desiring a mountain retreat!

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect vacation in your wonderful house! It had all of the comforts of home in a quiet and tranquil setting. The people of Grand Lake were so friendly and the area is beautiful. The view of the lake and surrounding mountains from the porch can't be beat, especially when it is snowing outside and there is a roaring fire in the fireplace. We hope to stay here again, and would whole-heartedly recommend this rental to anyone visiting the area, families and couples alike!

A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home Labor day weekend of 2013 - we couldn't have asked for a better stay! The home and surrounding yard are perfect for relaxation - the fire pit was a favorite of ours, and the deck offers great views of the lake. Extremely clean, pet friendly, rustic feel with all the comforts of home. We will be back!

THIRD YEAR

  • 5 of 5
Our third year and we have enjoyed it more each time. Being able to use the fire pit this time was great for cooking hot dogs and brats. Less eating out and more sitting around the fire. The grandkids thought it was a great place to sit around and talk after the adults had gone to bed. The view of the lake is super and a cup of coffee on the balcony is a great place to start the day. There's great hiking just up the road. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Lewis,
It's so fun to have your family return for the third year in a row. You're building family memories to last a life time. We love Grand Lake and our, humble yet very comfortable, cabin and it truly makes us happy to know other families enjoy it as much as we do.

So glad you enjoyed the camp fire. That setting, overlooking the lake, is absolutely gorgeous at dusk. We hope you found the newly remodeled bathroom a plus as well.

Thank you again and we look forward to having you return next year.
