About Rod Archer

We live in Colorado and love to spend time in the Mountains fishing, hiking and enjoying nature.

Rod Archer purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Rod Archer chose Rocky Mountain National Park

For years we have been renting places near Grand Lake for our vacations. We decided that the only place we wanted to own a cabin was on Sun Valley Lake. This lake is the perfect size and a great location in one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.

What makes this cabin unique

A beautiful cabin in a tranquil, breathtaking setting with more activities nearby than you can do in a month. Hike, bike, ATV and snowmobile all from your front door. You are walking distance to Arapahoe National Forest and the Colorado River Headwaters for some great fly-fishing. Winding River Resort is nearby and features horseback riding and other resort activities. On the Trail rentals is also a short walk away featuring ATV rentals in summer and snowmobiles in winter. The cabin is very close to the quaint, historic town of Grand Lake with lots of great restaurants and family activities. Shadow Mountain Lake and Lake Granby are minutes away with fantastic fishing and water sports. You will be easy driving distance to skiing, golf, river rafting, ballooning and countless other winter and summer activities.

Great Winter Retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a weekend for a snowmobile trip. Had a great time and the property was very comfortable and clean. The weather was pretty cold but it stayed nice and warm inside. It was right off the trail system for Grand Lake making quick access to some good riding. Looks like it would be a great place in the summer as well.

Great Time at Moose Track Manor

  • 5 of 5

Great trip to the Grand lake area and Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). Rod did a great job providing very detailed information about getting to the house and how everything in the house worked. I have stayed at many rentals and never had such a nice package of information. Very well done and helpful. The cabin was easy to find. It was clean, large, and well decorated. The setting on the lake was very beautiful. It provided great access to the west side of RMNP and a beautiful drive across Trail Ridge Road to Estes Park and the eastern part of the park. The location was perfect for us as it was more relaxed and less touristy on the Grand lakeside with easy access across. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the living room warm and inviting. There was plenty of room to spread out but the house also felt intimate, warm, and inviting. Very close access to a RMNP visitor center and lots animals in the area including several large herds of elk within a mile or so of the cabin. I would highly recommend Moose Track Manor to anyone traveling to Grand Lake.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was amazing! It was very easy to find. The directions provided by the owner were the exact directions on our GPS as well. The photos are incredibly accurate. It was very clean, quiet and spacious. The beds were very comfortable. The location to Rocky Mountain National Park cannot be beat. You are literally right at the entrance. We would go out at dusk and watch all the Elk grazing. We did not see any moose at the cabin though we did see amazing birds, an eagle and a red fox. The stars at night are amazing as well. The cabin is fully stocked with cookware. If you forgot something minor like coffee or condiments other travelers have left behind items for you to use. We felt like we should contribute so we left some ziplock bags and a map we bought of the park. I didn't need to contact the owner during my stay but prior to our stay any questions I had were answered immediately. My only suggestion would be to buy your groceries in Granby on the way in. The market in Grand Lake is nice but very small and you will only find the basic essentials. I would definitely recommend this cabin and stay here in the future. Also, my security deposit was returned within two business days of our departure which was nice.

Moose Tracks Manor is ideally located on the western portal to Rocky Mountain Natoinal Park, and on the trail entrance to Arapahoe National Forest. This gives visitors walking access to fly fishing, hiking, ATV and dirt bike riding in the summer and snowmobiling in winter months.

The cabin is next to Winding River resort which offers horseback riding and wild west chuck wagon dinners to the public.

Moreover, it is only 3 miles from Grand Lake, CO, a beautiful and popular vacation destination with many great restaurants and tourist activities. Nearby are large lakes: lake Granby and Shadow Mountain lake, where many summertime water sports are available including waterskiing, fishing, jet skiing.
