About Ali McDowell

We were recently introduced to the Grand Lake area and fell in love with it. So we decided to pursue the dream of owning our own cabin and making it available for others to rent. We are an extended family ownership from the Northern Colorado area. The peaceful, serene location of this cabin is what we have fallen in love with.

Ali McDowell purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Ali McDowell chose Grand Lake

-There are many reasons we have chosen this area of Colorado to rent out and vacation. Right from our 'front door and cabin' we have spectacular views of the Never Summer Mountain Range. A 20 acre non-motorized lake located 20 yards from our porch in which you can fish, paddle boat or canoe from . An entrance to 250 miles of extended trails for 4 wheeling, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, mountain biking located only a couple miles down the road. The Grand Lake town is only a 5 minute drive and offers great dining and wonderful Grand Lake Views. Everything offered just right from the front door.

Our First Disappointment Using VRBO

  • 2 of 5
We have used VRBO for many years and this is the first time that that I can say that the rental did not meet our expectations. The cabin is in need of some serious maintenance and updating. Not all of the burners on the stove work, the icemaker doesn’t make ice and the overall kitchen area is just old and tired. The bathrooms are also in pretty bad shape. Rust in the sinks and tubs. For us the biggest problem was the WI-FI connection. When we first arrived it did not work at all. After contacting the owners we final got service connection the following night. Unfortunately the connection speed is so slow that all connection requests would time out before connection could be made. This was important to us because we were conducting business while we were on vacation. We ended up finding a connection in town that would work for us. All of the fishing equipment was tangled beyond repair. We purchased all new line to redo each reel. On the positive side we did see a lot of wildlife. The moose in the picture may have been the same moose that my wife ran into while out taking an evening stroll. She was smart enough to quickly retreat and return to the cabin. Overall I would say that the value is just not there for this rental. I will continue to use VRBO because as I stated above up to now we have always been completely satisfied.

all the comforts of home with the addition of great atmosphere.

  • 4 of 5
6 adults, three small boys and 6 were from Texas. Was an awsome experience for my family and now they want to move to Colorado. Cabin was very comfortable and all had enough space and privacy. Cabin had everything one could need plus some. My only suggestion would be to have a small t.v in each bedroom or be able to stream movies on computer so several people could relax at night and watch what they like. Otherwise, no complaints.

Wonderful Soul-Reviving Cabin on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I cannot express just how warm, welcoming, and enjoyable this cabin is. We lacked for nothing! The lake is gorgeous and the owners provide everything you need to enjoy it. I spent many relaxing mornings and evenings on the dock just letting the atmosphere take my stress away. We even got to see the river otter a few times! Great place to stay. We have tried many rentals and this one felt like a second home. The owners are great people too. When my daughter left her favorite doll behind, they had her to us the next day. This is a very family friendly, off the beaten path, yet close to all you need in Grand Lake, place to stay. We are already planning our return trip!

Wonderful Surprise

  • 5 of 5
The folks who own this cabin came through for us in a pinch when we lost our cabin reservation in Estes due to the flood. They saved our vacation! The cabin was immaculate and had everything--even a crock pot and a lot of little items you don't normally get. There were bikes to ride and a boat to take out on the lake. You only had to go a few blocks to watch the elk and there was wildlife everywhere. The photos on the webpage are great, but it was much better than the photos. Location is close to Grand Lake and everything was easy to get to. it was also very quiet. I would totally recommend this place.

Awesome Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
We went to this cabin for our anniversary weekend and what a treat! The view is amazing and so peaceful. One evening, while eating dinner on the back deck, a momma and baby moose wandered by, went down by the water and grazed along the shore. The town of Grand Lake is about 7 minutes away with shops and restaurants and a nice beach. There is so much to do in the area and the sights are fantastic! This is THE place to go for fun, relaxation and unwinding. We'll be back!!
