About The Owner

My husband and I have lived and traveled all over the world. Originally from Michigan and Minnesota, we married in Nashville, TN and currently live in Parker, CO. We chose this unique 'Alta Vista' as our mountain getaway because we enjoy the outdoors and the friendly, small town feel of Grand Lake. We love to hike and view wildlife just up the road in RM National Park and canoe on Shadow Mountain Lake. We also come for personal retreats, to listen to the birds and watch the snow fall. We hope you enjoy our home away from home as much as we do. Mike and Carolyn Nickerson

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Grand Lake is Grand!

  • 4 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay here at our rental house. It is very close to town and lakes as well as RMNP! It was well furnished and very comfortable. I would recommend it to any size group from a couple to 6-8 ppl. We most enjoyed the view and the privacy as it was just us two and our small doggie.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family vacation here. The 8 adults and 3 children had a great time. We had plenty of space to spread out, enjoy meals and games together. There's enough space for people to be together or find a quiet space to be alone if they needed that. Great balcony with spectacular views. A short walk into town. We would definitely return for another vacation.

Grand Lake Winter Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay here! Minutes from downtown Grand Lake (you could even walk there in the warmer weather), easy to get to in the middle of winter via car. The views from the main level room are gorgeous! Even if it's too cold to use the nice large deck, the entire wall facing the lake is windows. Beautiful sunrises! The house is very spacious, great for three separate families - lots of room to spreadout. Humidifiers were available in all the rooms which was great too. We initially had some trouble getting the cable and wifi to work, but when I contacted the owners they got the issue resolved immediately! They were great! Highly recommend this place!

GRAND Shadow Mountain Lake View in Grand Lake,CO

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful home with upscale furnishings and appointments. We were only two but could easily accommodate a large group on its 3 levels. Close to town and quick access to west side of Rocky Mountain National Park via Rt 34 (Trail Ridge Road). Excellent view of fireworks from the deck if you happen to be there when they are on display.

Fishing trip

We had a wonderful time staying in your beautiful home. The house is very comfortable and met our needs 100%. The view was beautiful too and the deck was perfect for sitting and chatting. This was the first time that we rented a house for our yearly excursion and I am sure that we will do it again. Thank you so much for allowing us to use your house.
