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.

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.

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.

Perfect vacation home in beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

The home is spotless, beds are comfortable, setting is breathtaking and owner was very easy to work with. This is a beautiful home with a well equipped kitchen, washer and dryer on site, gas fireplace, games for the family and a hot tub. We could not have had a better week. The home is an easy walk into town plus very, very close to the national park. After exploring the area for a week, we think Moose Ponds is the best location in all of Grand Lake. We were grateful for the restaurant and shopping suggestions sent by the owner, and advice about how to handle altitude sickness was appreciated (we're from flat Ohio). Could not have asked for anything better. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Beautiful property in Grand Lake, CO

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the week in July to visit Rocky Mountain National Park. The house is situated close to Grand Lake which is a beautiful lakefront town with several very good restaurants and shops. Location to Rocky Mountain National Park is excellent and is just a short drive up the highway to the park entrance.

The house is clean, well maintained and had very good amenities. It was perfect for the week. Wildlife is in abundance at the property with hummingbirds, deer, Yellow Bellied Marmots and we were visited twice by the local moose. My daughter especially enjoyed the baby Chipmunks living next to the driveway.

Jerry is very organized and everything was in place for the property.

Moose Ponds stay delightful!!

  • 4 of 5

Our week (June 23-July 2, 2016) at Moose Ponds was totally enjoyable, unseasonable rain in the mountains around Grand Lake notwithstanding. Saw lots of elk and moose in RMNP, which starts less than a mile north, but even saw moose (bull, cow, calf) right beside one of the moose ponds just below our lodging. Also saw a fox by the ponds and lots of rainbow trout; but, our favorite was the marmot family which resides in the log pile beside the nearby hiking trail...Papa Marmot's urgent chirp everytime we walked by reminded us not to get too close. Brunch & supper in a magnificent setting are literally 3 minutes away at the Grand Lake Lodge porch dining room. Great place for a family gathering of 3 generations. ATVing, horseback riding, Colorado River wading are just a couple of minutes away from Moose Ponds.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your insightful review. Glad you had a great time. Those Marmots have been their now for two years. Would you mind emailing or call me to let me know what we could have done to earn a 5 star review instead of a 4? Jerry Healey
