We are Coloradoans who know how to appreciate the great mountain outdoors. We feel visitors will get a satisfying experience when visiting, whether you are an active outdoorsman/woman or just up to enjoy the quiet mountain air and sun. We had our first blind date in Grand Lake over 40 years ago and have enjoyed it ever since.

The lot backs up to the golf course, and with a vacant lot next door it feels nicely private. The Golf Course Clubhouse is only 1/2 mi. away. The lower bedroom has its own electric heater/stove. Our favorite space is the east facing outside covered deck large enough to accomodate many and includes a patio table + 6 chairs, additional seating wicker couch, a swinging bench, and BBQ. The cabin is simple but efficient. Rooms are generous with lots of windows. Ceiling fans keep the air moving if needed, and a woodburning stove makes the great room very cozy. Satelite TV is available.
When there are no fire restrictions you can enjoy a fire in the firepit out back. Please be EXTREMELY CAREFUL as fire danger can be great.
