About the property

Moose Ponds is an exquisite vacation home located within the town of Grand Lake. Guests can drive or walk to gourmet cuisine or down home cooking in local restaurants, and shopping in town is always a delight. Moose Ponds is right around the corner from both. Built in 2006, the home offers an abundance of amenities and discriminating designs, including an open, airy floor plan with cathedral ceilings - perfect for socializing. All rates include sales tax and cleaning fees! Seven night minimum.

After a day of mountain activities, guests can gather in front of the stone fireplace to relax in comfort. The hot tub, and the large shower with a double shower head available in the master bath, offer a peaceful respite. The home also features a gourmet kitchen perfect for preparing a meal for a large group. Guests will also enjoy a generous living room, dining area and a great room on the lower level that includes surround sound and a game area.

The home is tastefully decorated with fashionable furnishings, luxurious mattresses, beautifully appointed wood floors and ceilings, copper sinks and appeasing art.

Your family and friends will make special memories during their vacation at Moose Ponds that can be remembered while relaxing on one of the two decks. The views from the decks of the two small ponds where wildlife frequently linger are spectacular.

Take just a short drive, and guests will encounter extraordinary Rocky Mountain National Park, one of the most beautiful places in the world. Featuring over 150 small lakes and 450 miles of streams, first-time visitors and local guests will be enchanted. Adam Falls, a magnificent waterfall, is also within camera range with just a 10 minutes hike.

Grand Lake is special any season. In the summer, it offers the best boating in Colorado on the state's largest natural lake, and Shadow Mountain and Lake Granby are only minutes away.

Guests may bring their own boat or rent from one of several facilities.

When the snow flies, the snowmobile trails are just steps away from the door at Moose Ponds. For a true Colorado skiing experience, Winter Park Ski Resort is an easy 40-minute drive. Sol Vista Ski area is 20 minutes away and is one of the best family resorts around.

Please enjoy your stay at Moose Ponds in beautiful Grand Lake, Colorado.

Our stay at Moose Ponds

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Moose Ponds. The accommodations are just what we needed for our family and the location is just a short ride (or a long walk) from the downtown. The owner ( Jerry) was always willing to answer our questions. There is plenty of wildlife to view and we even saw a bear on the lower part of the road. We would definitely stay there again.

Wow what a great place and a dream trip of a life time that my family just came back from between the Rocky Mountains grand lake and jerrys home I can truly say we loved them all equally that's how great this home is.The location is just perfect we sat for hours on the upper deck watching the wildlife funnel down a ridge to the beautiful pond right off both decks which was all our favorites.If you love to cook which I do this beautiful home offers a gourmet kitchen that you would die for which the number one feature is having everyone sit around on the stools and watching and sampling the food.The lower half of the home was another great spot to this home which we called the game room with the TV and games and another deck with the hot tub.From start to end jerry always made your stay feel very warm and welcoming.This home is very clean and updated to the max .Jerry and his family has not miss a step to making your stay the best experience possible.Nothing less than 5 stars if had a spot for 6 stars would have given it in a heart beat.Thank you so much for sharing your home from the Porrett family❤️

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The home at Moose Ponds is beautiful. It has everything you need to be comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked for preparing meals. The bedrooms and bathrooms are decorated nicely and the beds are very comfortable. The desks are beautiful and inviting. Grand Lake is fun to walk around and shop or have a bite to eat. Grand Lake is one of our favorite Colorado destinations. Renting from this owner was easy and he is very polite. My family will definitely return to Moose Ponds. Maybe next time the Moose will appear!

Great vacation home in a beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a great time at this house. The home was beautiful and comfortable. It was really bigger than what we needed but it was the area we wanted to be in. The hot tub was awesome! The owner was very helpful, friendly and prompt to respond. The town of Grand Lake was beautiful. Plenty of snow to play in. We enjoyed ice fishing, snowmobiling and skiing. Having a garage to park in was a huge bonus! We would definitely return to this rental in the future and would highly recommend it for other travelers to this area. I'm sure this area is equally as beautiful in the summer.

Great House! Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Moose Ponds was the perfect fit for our family! The location was great for the wedding we were attending at the Winding River Ranch. Grand Lake is a beautiful town rich with history..which was fun to explore! Although the house was great for entertaining we enjoyed some meals at The Sage Brush, The Rapids, and Daven Haven!! Thank you for opening your house to our family..the memories will last forever!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. I didn't know the Winding River Ranch did weddings. That is a great spot for a wedding. Hope to host you again in the future.
