Overview

About the property

2 BR, 1.5 BA, Sleeps 4 adults and 2 children maximum

Welcome to our condo in the woods - though it's a condo, our guests often comment once they step inside they think they're in a cozy cabin. We're on 40 secluded, wooded acres on a ridge above town and the lakes. Looking for water views? Our deck affords expansive views of Shadow Mountain Reservoir, Mount Baldy and the snow capped mountain ranges. The 'townhome' style of our complex means we are in separate, staggered buildings, providing windows on three sides and plenty of trees, mountains and water to gaze upon. Enjoy the quiet of our park-like setting with the convenience of town within easy reach on foot or by bicycle. The gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park is just one mile from our door. We are on an 'elk run' and in the fall they bugle just below us. Other times of year expect to see bear and fox. Distinctively decorated, our condo has been completely remodeled down to the rafters. Our guests describe our property as 'cozy' and 'romantic.' Luxury amenities abound.

Great condo - great location - great views!

  • 5 of 5

First, if you're not familiar with Grand Lake, do yourself a favor and stay here vs. Estes Park. Unless you like Taffy shops, then stay in Estes Park.

The condo is great. The best part is the view from the deck, which the pictures online do not do justice. We had our morning coffee out there almost every day and my daughter enjoyed sitting out there as much as she could. The owners are very responsive and we received a package of information that was the best/most helpful from any HomeAway stay we've done over the years. The condo is in great shape on the inside, tastefully decorated, and has EVERYTHING you'd need - even an awesome Rowenta iron (I appreciate good irons) and a bluetooth hookup for the speaker. You never had to go looking for anything, the kitchen has everything, the gas grill worked perfectly. The beds are super comfortable. There were plenty of towels/linens. We did not use the washer or dryer save when we left, but it was great to have. There is plenty of parking and they have a convenient location compared to the town. The Condo is not huge, I'd not recommend more than 4 people. There is room to sleep more, but it would be a little tight. There are a lot of decorative pillows - so be ready to step around pillows in the morning when you're getting out of bed. :) We'd recommend this condo and this owner to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments on our condo. We put a lot of effort into the details you mention and we appreciate that you recognized them in your review. We strive to create the vacation getaway that we desire when we travel. A word about the deck views - they are indeed extraordinary and we love them too. Our favorite thing to do is enjoy a glass of wine on the deck in the summer and watch the sunset over the lake and Mount Baldy gradually turn all sorts of shades of pink :) Grand Lake has such an authentic brand - we're very glad you enjoyed the area as much as we do.

Cozy cabin perfect for our wintry weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was everything we hoped for! The instructions were clear to follow and the cabin was so well stocked, anticipating our every need. I really appreciated how well the roads and parking area were plowed for our snowy vacation. Early morning views out onto the lake were spectacular and the stars at night were not to be missed! It was wonderful to be so close to Rocky Mountain National Park and get some snowshoeing in after renting from Never Summer Mountain in downtown Grand Lake. Thanks!!!

AMAZING Favorite Place Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Could not say anything bad about our stay here! Every detail was on point and was simply amazing. We loved everything about our stay! Comfortable beds, loved the fireplace and the kitchen had everything we needed! I am usually disappointed with water pressure in showers and scratchy sheets - but this condo had a lovely shower with great pressure and soft and cozy bed linens! We would love to return! Thank you so much for making our stay special! The view was outstanding and the sunsets were to die for. Great location - quiet and pretty easy to get in and out of. Love - Love - Love. Thanks so much for having such a great place for people to stay!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this thoughtful review! The details you mention are also important to my husband and I when we travel and we are delighted when we can find them in a vacation rental rather than an expensive hotel room. It's so nice to hear from a guests that our efforts are appreciated. We import our experiences in boutique small hotels and inns from the U.S. and Europe to our place in Grand Lake, all in an effort to make a hard-earned getaway just a little more special for us and our valued guests.

This place is a gem

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we've visited this lovely property. We were able to create our whole Thanksgiving meal with all of the equipment in the kitchen. There were lots of nice-to-have staples in the kitchen including flour, ketchup, sugar, coffee, etc. We didn't use any as we had brought everything for our meal, but was great to see a place so well stocked.

The view is lovely and the whole place is super cozy with the fireplace, comfy chairs, very nice bedding, etc. Definately recommend this to friends and family!

Comfy and Cozy - Exactly like the photos!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our five-day stay and loved having a cozy base to come home to at the end of each day of hiking and sight-seeing. The condo is exactly as reflected in the photos; we plugged in the holiday lights and turned on the fireplace each night. We so wanted to use the deck, but, it was just a bit too cold; it was a perfect place for watching the fireworks at the end of Constitution Week though!

Per the comments from the Harberg’s, we bought paper products before checking in, but there turned out to be plenty available in the condo. Plenty of laundry detergent included, which typically is not provided at other VRBO locations we have used. The kitchen was very well stocked.

I would echo the thoughts of another poster in that the place is small, and having one full bath would be tough if you were trying to stay with extended family. For the two of us it was ideal, and would have worked with our young nieces – another couple, probably not so much. And, the exterior/common areas aren’t very well maintained compared to the rental unit – after a couple days we didn’t notice it at all, but, upon pulling up we were a little surprised because the impeccable care taken by the Harberg’s doesn’t extend to the rest of the condo association. We never heard a peep out of the neighbors though – you couldn’t ask for a more peaceful location!

About Katie Harberg

Your hosts - Rob and Katie. We live in Boulder, Colorado and enjoy Grand Lake where we love to cook leisurely meals and enjoy a glass of wine watching the sunset over Grand Lake and Mount Baldy - all this after a day of hiking or fishing!

Katie Harberg purchased this condo in 2003

Why Katie Harberg chose Grand Lake

We fell in love with the views from our deck, and our guests have too! The million dollar setting prompted us to gut the interior and create the vacation rental we had always tried to find - rustic, but with great linens, towels and kitchen equipment.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet, park-like setting on 40 private acres with views in all directions and abundant wildlife viewing, yet very close to town. Charming interior décor with all the comforts of home, and did we mention the views over the lake!?
