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 place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The cabin and the location was perfect. It was quiet and very relaxing. It is close enough to town to but it still feels like you are out in the woods. We had no problems and everything was as described. Grand Lakes is a great little town and the National park is spectacular. Would visit again.

Amazing cabin setting

  • 5 of 5

Just spend a short, but sweet two nights here and our family absolutely loved it. The cabin is in a great location set off from the main road and only a few miles into town. It had everything our family of five needed for a perfect stay. The Colorado River running through the property is absolutely stunning and we could've spent hours sitting there watching and listening to the rushing water. I really wish I was back there, but hope to visit again someday. Five stars and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family.

Lovely cabin in a bucolic setting

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, comfortable cabin in a lovely setting on the river with rushing water. It's a great location for entering Rocky Mountain National Park and right across the road from Grand Lake. We would love to return again.

Rustic Cabin

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed getting away to this cabin. I highly recommend it for people with dogs as it is a safe, dead end location. A couple of down sides, were the fact that the cleaning lady's car broke down in the drive and we couldn't get in until close to 5, so we only got 1 full day there. She was interesting, the place was not very clean. Considering the advertised fee of $195/night...VRBO's fees kicked the bill up to $872, not worth $436/night. Also, the grounds were so overgrown that it was hard to enjoy the property, I didn't recognize it when we pulled up, would have been nice to enjoy the river more. Could be a great getaway, needs cleaned up.

Fantastic cabin. Hoped for a bit more privacy

  • 4 of 5

This Cabin is equipped with everything! We thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a great location for Rocky Mountain national Park. However, we didn't realize it was right next to a very busy road that you could hear and acoss the river from another house. The house is directly facing the cabin and it is your view (instead of trees which we anticipated) We had hoped for more privacy. The cabin DOES NOT have air conditioning as stated in the ad. So be aware on those hot July days.
