Grand Lake House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 4 Bath Home On Shadow Mountain Lake

Clean lines, warm wood, open spaces, comfortable furnishings and perfect proportion soothe the spirit in this house designed by an Interior Designer as a get away for her own family. The comfortable great room overlooks the lake and mountains through a window wall proportioned according to the Golden Mean. Enjoy the vintage stereo equipment streaming your favorite music through wall and ceiling mounted speakers. Bond with friends and family while preparing meals in the gourmet kitchen which effortlessly accommodates multiple cooks and has seating for 5 at the island counter. Build a fire and roast marshmallows or make s'mores in the super efficient Rumford Masonry Fireplace which is quite literally the heart of the house. Head downstairs to watch TV, movies, and sports on the brand new large screen TV with surround sound.

Outside, gather on the dock to read, fish, or launch your favorite boat from 2 of 3 slips. The lake is great for fishing, boating, water sports (bring a wet suit!), bird watching, wildlife viewing, lounging and enjoying the spectacular scenery. Never get in your car; take your boat into town and tie up at the town dock for lunch, ice cream, or shopping. Cross country ski on the lake in winter, or drill a hole in the ice and catch a fish!

The house a private bedroom and bathroom on each level, perfect for 3 couples or 2 families with kids. The location is close to everything: Rocky Mountain National Park west entrance - 1 mile, Grand Lake Village center - 1 mile, Grand Lake golf course - 2 miles.

Howard and I were born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and both of us, coincidentally, moved north at the age of 14; Howard to Colorado and I to Minnesota. We did our graduate work at the University of Colorado and have lived in Boulder ever since. Though we love the mountains and Colorado, we missed the water; so we began looking for a place where we could have both. We fell in love with Grand Lake instantly, purchased our land in 1992, began construction in 2001, and moved into our dream vacation home at the end of 2002. Our 3 daughters have grown up here and love to come back to this special place.

Kathryn Foster purchased this house in 2002

Having grown up on the ocean we missed the water. We began searching for lake front property close to Boulder and a lake large enough for sailing, water skiing, and other boating activities as well as a boating community. Finally, we wanted a town that had history and was authentic. Grand Lake is Colorado's largest and deepest natural lake. Shadow Mountain Lake, though technically a reservoir, is connected to Grand Lake via a canal and kept at a constant level so for all practical purposes it is a lake. We liked the fact that there's a yacht club, two marinas, several good restaurants, and a charming village center. The proximity of Rocky Mountain National Park with its spectacular mountains and wildlife are an incredible bonus.

We fell in love with the view of Baldy framed by bluffs. We liked the south east exposure, proximity to town, and year round accessibility. And we wanted to be on Shadow Mountain Lake rather than Grand Lake because it has less boat traffic and it's eastern shore can never be developed because it is in the National Park.

MOUNTAIN VACATON

  • 5 of 5
First just let me say WOW!! This house was beautiful. One of the best stocked kitchens we have ever come across in a rental. There is also a variety of games and puzzles to fit all ages. The view is spectacular. Sitting on the deck looking out over the lake with a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the evening was very enjoyable. Being so close to RMNP made for a nice day trip into the park-we saw our first moose there! The dock right out front made for great fishing-only wish we could have rented a boat for our entire stay. We had a great time and look forward to making a return trip!!

SUMMER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Property was immaculate, lake views spectacular, and proximity to Adams Falls and Rocky Mountain National Park was very convenient. Was a turnkey accommodation for my family and friends, all we had to do was pick up the groceries. In all, we had 4 adults and 4 children, and there was easily room for more. One of the sinks clogged, and the owners had a plumber out in no time to fix. Would highly recommend the property.

GREAT MEMORIES

  • 5 of 5
This house is better than described. The view of Shadow Mountain Lake is amazing. You can either boat into town right of your own dock or walk as Grand Lake is not far at all. Everything you need is in the home. The owner of this house is so thoughtful and really made our stay a wonderful memory. Highly recommend booking this one.

AMAZING 4TH OF JULY WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a couple of nights' stay at this wonderful lake home over the Fourth of July. From the dock you can see the fireworks over the lake reflected back. We had plenty of room for a dozen to stay and to prepare and serve a big pot luck lunch with additional friends who dropped by. When the kids wore themselves out after kayaking and water skiing, they disappeared downstairs to the big TV room to watch movies while the adults stayed upstairs, relaxing. The views are spectacular and so relaxing. Plenty of parking space. One day we walked into Grand Lake to do touristy stuff around town. Good restaurants nearby. I'd go back for sure!
