Grand Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Come stay in our charming, mountain lake home and enjoy the gorgeous, 180 degree views of Rocky Mountain National Park and Shadow Mountain Lake. Cook up a hearty breakfast in the kitchen and enjoy a cup of coffee while savoring the views, quiet location, and easy access to numerous activities. An artesian spring and willow bushes provide natural attractions for moose, fox, elk and other animals which you will likely see during your visit.

Spend a fun-filled day skiing, snowshoeing or browsing the shops in Grand Lake. How about sledding or cross country skiing with your family? This cabin is the ideal place for you to make those special memories that will last a lifetime. Have fun hanging out together and getting away from it all - enjoy board games, doing a puzzle, or just relaxing in the laid back Colorado mountains.

Have lunch or dinner in one of the many fine local restaurants. Perhaps you will decide to explore the night life in the valley, or maybe a relaxing evening at home is in order. The full kitchen has everything you need to make a wonderful home-cooked meal.

Return to the cozy cabin after a busy day in the mountains and sink into the soft recliner couch with a bowl of popcorn to watch a movie. When it's time for bed, climb our signature spiral staircase to the master bedroom and loft, aka 'the fort,' which is perfect for the young and the young at heart. Then nestle under the warm quilts for sweet dreams, until you awake to another amazing day in Grand Lake, Colorado.

**We also own the Moose Cabin, #218770. Rent one or both cabins! They are on the same 1/2 acre, but separate. A great place for two families to stay.***

About The Owner

We love the Grand Lake area and all of the outdoor activities it offers. We especially enjoy relaxing at the cabin when we are not going up to work! As lovely as the cabin is, we are always making improvements. We figure if we are comfortable there, our guests will be as well.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2006

Why The Owner chose Rocky Mountain National Park

Skiing, hiking, wildlife, views, fishing, boating, snowshoeing! We really love to get out of the city and kick back in the mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

5/09: Recently, we had a gorgeous moose wander across our property. We quietly trailed it, taking many pictures. What a huge animal - we certainly kept our distance! We've observed elk while eating out on the deck.

The winter snowfalls are amazing. We had 3 feet out in the yard this winter! The summers are cooler than in Boulder, and we can see far more stars!

Guestbook comments from the owner

and how clean it is. We really enjoyed our stay. Our last adventure was having a hummingbird get stuck in the house. We finally got it out, poor baby. Hope to come again. :)

Autumn at Star Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cozy cabin in a beautiful area of Colorado. It was well maintained, clean, and well stocked with the necessities (tp, paper towels, trash bags, linens, etc) we relaxed on the deck which affords a great view of the lake, explored the Rockies and surrounding area, watched movies on the dvd, sat around the fire pit while enjoying the night sky, and viewed terrific wildlife (elk, moose, and deer)

During our visit the aspen were gorgeous in yellows, golds ,oranges, and reds. Grand lake was Crystal clear and the weather perfect with temps 40's at night, 60's in the day.

Hopefully we will make it back for a return visit in the future!

Nice Woodsy Cabin on the best side of RMNP!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin, nice and close to RMNP. We spent most of our time on the decks whenever we could, which really adds to the place. The wildlife is abundant! Within a half hour after sunset, we saw a bull moose, 3 mule deer, a fox and two black bear within 100' of the cabin. And there is a hot springs nearby to soak your weary bones after hiking all day in the Park. Our only complaint, is that the carpeted floor could have been cleaned better, more dust and must than we prefer.

Owner's Response: Wow! You did see a lot of wildlife! We're pleased that you enjoyed the cabin, and agree that the decks are a wonderful place to spend time. Thank you for the feedback about the carpet - it will be passed on to our cleaning service for sure. We have had some turnover in our staff lately, along with vacuum issues. This is being addressed.

Star Cabin was everything we wanted and then some...

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Angie & Bob were great. Angie called me once she approved the reservation and was very accommodating. She emailed info on things to do around Grand Lake, what to pack and how to get to the cabin. The Star Cabin had everything we needed to make some home cooked meals and the views are just amazing. This was our second stay in Grand Lake and would absolutely stay at the Star Cabin again. Thanks for the memories.

We stayed at the Star Cabin for a week with our five-year-old son and nine-month-old daughter, and it was perfect for us! Our son loved the spiral staircase and his own fort to sleep in. We loved the view, the deck, the full kitchen and grill, and the young male moose who visited us two evenings in a row. The location, too, was great, as we took day trips to RMNP and Winter Park, while visiting Grand Lake and Granby for meals out. Thank you to the Zimmerers for taking such good care of their property and making our stay so easy!

Incredible spot!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very cute, well-maintained, clean and very comfortable. The views are gorgeous and it has such easy access to very quaint downtown Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park. The owner was so easy to work with and I will absolutely recommend Star Cabin to anyone traveling to this area.
