Grand Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to our family friendly Hilltop mountain home! We are just 2 miles outside of Rocky Mountain National Park and a mile and a half from the quaint Village of Grand Lake. Our ski-chalet style home offers the escape of a mountain get-away with the comforts of home. Enjoy the spectacular views of Shadow Mountain Lake, Grand Lake and the inspiring Indian Peaks from our large wrap-around deck or from the cozy, comfy couches in the spacious family room. Large picture windows throughout the main level allow for tremendous views no matter where you’re relaxing.

Our home is approximately 2,000 sq. feet and sits on two acres of beautiful land. We have two family rooms which make it nice for a larger family or 2 smaller ones. Cozy up to the fire, play board games, do puzzles or have a serious game of poker at the game table adjacent to the main floor family room & kitchen. There is plenty of room for everyone to do their relaxing.

Our bunkroom is fun for the kids and our two king-bed bedrooms up-stairs allow for parents privacy. The kitchen is roomy and easy to work in with everything you may need to prepare a great meal. Sit round our large dining room table or take it outside & BBQ and enjoy the beautiful mountain sunsets while dining outdoors.

Whether you are planning a good old-fashioned family vacation or a romantic mountain get-away, our home offers the perfect escape! We have a picturesque fire pit with large log seats and plenty of firewood to roast those marshmallows all night long.

Wildlife visit us often. Moose, elk, deer, foxes & a variety of birds are regular entertainment. Or, walk up the road and see if you can sneak-a-peek at the moose that linger in the willows around the pond just a short distance from the house. If you're up for more of an adventure drive into Rocky Mountain National Park where you are sure to see nature at it’s finest.

The Village of Grand Lake offers all the dining selections you could want, everything from fine dining to pizza & burgers. Or pack a picnic and enjoy the beach in town or rent kayaks and hunt out a place on Shadow Mountain Lake. There is everything from hiking, fishing, putt-putt, horseback riding, mountain biking, ATV’s, snowmobile, cross-country skiing, golfing, water-skiing, sailing, most likely anything that makes you happy on a mountain vacation. Or, how about just meandering the shops along the boardwalk and stopping for ice-cream & fudge!

Our location offers the perfect compromise to “getting away” but yet having it all! Everything you would want is available in the summer and for the winter vacation you can snowmobile right in town or get to downhill skiing at either Sol Vista in Granby or go a little further to the nationally known Winter Park & Mary Jane.

Year round, we know you will enjoy our Hilltop mountain home!

About Jennifer Banks

The Banks & Fenske families co-own. Susan & Jennifer are sisters & wanted to have a place that they could share lifetime memories with their families together. They love just hanging out & relaxing at the house, hiking, canoeing & picnicking on the shores of Shadow Mountain Lake. It wouldn't be a family gathering without a well thought out weekend of yummy food & dinners to prepare. Nothing says family like sitting around the dining room table enjoying a good meal together! Lance & David relax by chopping down trees & taking care of the land. Of course, there's always time to watch a baseball game! The kids love the laid-back feel of Grand Lake & love coming up to 'get-away' from the stresses of life. Family is number one with us & our mountain home helps us keep that a priority!

Jennifer Banks purchased this house in 2004

Why Jennifer Banks chose Rocky Mountain National Park

We've been coming up to Grand Lake for nearly 25 years. David & his family have owned their family cabin for nearly 30. We love it that the area is so close to Rocky Mountain National Park & we love the fact that Grand Lake doesn't have a chain restaurant or coffee house. We love the beauty of of the lakes butting up to mountains & the charm of the board-walk village.

What makes this house unique

Fabulous Firepit with lots of log seating & beautiful views!

Lovely cabin with a wonderful view of the lake.

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable and well-equipped property in a terrific location. Everything was clean and the kitchen was very spacious with a wide assortment pots, pans, spices and utensils. Beds are comfortable. We spent a relaxing weekend watching the snow fall over the lake, cooking lots of food and watching some old favorite movies that were available in the cabin.

Fantastic views - wonderful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my wife and 2 college age daughters. This mountain home has fantastic views of shadow mountain lake. When we arrived there was a deer on the property. Later the first evening my wife and I saw a fox. The next morning I saw deer while I was exploring the property. The cabin is beautiful and has all the comforts of home. We enjoyed spending time on the deck. In the evenings we played games provided by the owner. The location is convenient to the Rocky Mountain National Park which was important to us because we like to hike. On a hike to Lulu City we saw 13 moose. That was an awesome treat. We would definitely stay here again. The owners are easy to work with and very professional.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. We love all the wildlife that uses our property as a thoroughfare. We have also traversed that Lulu City trail many times. It's actually fun in the winter as a snow shoe or cross-country ski adventure as well. We will hope to see you another time, Mark. Thanks again.

Great home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row my friends and I have rented this home. It's got plenty of 'hang out' room including a fabulous deck with perfect views of Shadow Mountain Lake. The home is nestled among trees with no other home right on top of you. Wildlife is abundant! Right down the street from the marina if you want to rent a pontoon boat and really close to town and groceries. Love this place! Very comfortable!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review. We love the views and the quietude of the deck as well as the solitude the property can offer, so we're pleased you were able to enjoy it. Here's to hoping you'll make another return visit next year!

relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cabin & décor! We saw the most amazing, vivid full double rainbow our first afternoon. Enjoyed the view from the deck. Minutes from town - enjoyed shopping & the beach, but the water was too cold for swimming. We rented a boat for a few hours. Looked for moose at the park, but we didn't see any. Spent our evenings working on a puzzle we brought, tried to unplug for quality family time. We didn't want to leave.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We have always loved the views. Hopefully you'll encounter some moose or elk (or bear, from a distance) on your next Grand Lake visit. Like all things in life, you inevitably stumble upon the Rocky Mountain wildlife when you aren't looking. A double rainbow seems like a suitable substitute though. Thanks again.

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our family vacation. We had two couples and three kids/teenagers and there was more than enough room for all. The homeowners have put a lot of love and care into the property and there is every amenity you could want or need. It was the best vacation we have had in over 20 years thanks to this place and we highly recommend it. It has the rustic feel but still close to the village and lakes. The owners were also great to deal with! Thank you for a memorable vacation!!
