Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently returned home from a wonderful week long stay at this cabin. Michael was so nice to work with, everything was as described, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of rental or location. The cabin was clean and we felt right a home from the moment we entered the doors. The town of Grand Lake was charming and we loved the putt putt golf on the board walk. It was great to be centrally located for hikes into the Rocky Mountain National Park and the Arapaho National Forest. We set one day aside for shopping in Estes Park, and another day for boating and fishing on both Shadow Mountain Lake and Grand Lake. Of course no matter what we did each day, we would return home every evening and fish in the river as the sun set or maybe just watch the resident river otters at play. The roar of the river was so peaceful and the perfect way to relax at the end of each day. The weather was excellent and that combined with the perfect cabin, perfect host, and perfect location made it severly hard to want to come back to our home state of Texas.

Great location and well stocked

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at this cabin. It had everything that we needed for a relaxing vacation. The location on the river was gorgeous. It was late March and we were still able to fish because the river was no longer frozen. Very easy access to town, amazing hiking, dog sledding, hot springs, and anything else you may want to do in a mountain vacation. We had a minor plumbing issue that did not detract from the enjoyment of the trip and the owner sent a handy man over that day, on a holiday, which was totally unnecessary but much appreciated. One thing I will say that we didn't fully understand before arriving- the 2nd bedroom isn't accessible without going outside first and entering from the porch. This would be perfect if traveling with another couple or with older kids, but for our young kids we didn't feel comfortable with them sleeping in the detached room. We solved the problem by bringing the mattress of the 2nd bed into the living room and sleeping on the floor in there. Again, it didn't make the cabin experience any less enjoyable, but keep it in mind if traveling with young kids. Overall, a great trip. We would stay there again.

Unique private cabin

  • 5 of 5

My son and I really enjoyed our stay at the cabin during his spring break from KU. It is larger than I thought it would be and the second bedroom is separated from the main unit, a short walk under the porch. The second bedroom has a fireplace and it's own bath and would be ideal for a second couple or kids. The location is private but not close enough that you can see other houses. The Colorado river literally runs through the front yard and it's not a tiny finger, had very nice constant water flow. We skied at Grandby Ranch and snowmobiled, both are located within 20 minutes of the cabin. The town of Grand Lake is two miles to the north for groceries, restaurants, etc. The cabin had everything we needed, plenty of pots, pans, dishes, spices, shampoo, soap, someone even left some sunscreen which we needed. Michael made accessing the cabin simple and everything was as promised.

Nice cabin, great location, needs some fine tuning.

  • 3 of 5

My family of four (2 kids 2 adults) liked this cute little cabin but it could have used a bit of love before we arrived. It was the dead of winter in a brutal cold spell, so we will give a little benefit of the doubt on this one. When we arrived we noticed that things were not very clean (we like a clean place but are not neat freaks) . We called the property manager to inquire about it and she explained that due to the extreme cold the pipes had recently frozen and the cleaning crew was not able to use water when they cleaned last. That explained why the cold water didn't work in the shower while we were there I guess, which meant no bathing for anyone during our trip. Unfortunately the couch described as a fold out bed was too old, dirty and inaccessably placed in the living room to use. Again, not too anal, but this thing needs to be replaced pretty badly. Would I rent there again? Suprisingly yes. I would just ask for these matters to be attended to first, but like I said, it's a cute little place in a great location.

Cozy, convenient and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a long weekend at this Grand Lake cabin. The cabin was really perfect for us and was a nice balance between Colorado rustic and modern conveniences. The kitchen was well stocked and the bed was comfortable. We enjoyed hiking around in RMNP, soaking in the hot springs nearby and just hanging out and reading and watching movies. Being able to have our dog was a perk for us and there was plenty of space outside for her to play. Communication with Michael was easy. We had a great time and hope to return in the future!

Always a nice place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here before and came back. Location on the river is beautiful and the separate bedrooms add nice privacy for all. It's a quick drive to On The Trail snowmobile rentals which I also recommend. Also you get TV and wifi in the cabin which is a plus for us.
