About Roger and Kay Bottoms

We are Coloradoans who know how to appreciate the great mountain outdoors. We feel visitors will get a satisfying experience when visiting, whether you are an active outdoorsman/woman or just up to enjoy the quiet mountain air and sun. We had our first blind date in Grand Lake over 40 years ago and have enjoyed it ever since.

Roger and Kay Bottoms purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Roger and Kay Bottoms chose Rocky Mountain National Park

We bought this home because so many activities are readily accessed from this location.

There is access to: Rocky Mountain National Park, Columbine Lake, Grand Lake, Shadow Mountain Resevoir, and Lake Granby, all within a short walking or driving distance. Hike, golf, mountain bike, boat, shop.

Also the Village of Grand Lake is a short drive away and provides strolling through town shopping, or watching the sail boats float and the speed boats fly across Grand Lake, or play in the water at the swim beach. Rent a boat or paddle boat, fish, kayak, or water ski; or you might just cruze the lake sightseeing the mountains that encircle the lakes.

Hikes of all sorts are available including many along the Colorado River, even up to its headwaters!

Drive over Trail Ridge Road, the US's highest continuous paved road, to Estes Park for more shopping and sight seeing.

Stop at the top visitor center for amazing mountain top views from above timberline at 12,000 feet, a quick lunch, and souvenirs. Hike out to various points along the way for breathtaking views of the region's valleys, glaciers, and mountains.

Do NOT forget your best camera and extra batteries! There is nothing in the US like this!

Also dress for ANY weather in the mountains, from warm weather to winter type weather even in the summer. Take a picnic but be prepared to take shelter if weather rolls in.

Bring your backpack and wet weather gear. Don't forget sunscreen and chapstick - Mountain musts!

Horse rentals available for an equestrian experience or hay ride at nearby Winding River Resort.

What makes this cabin unique

The lot backs up to the golf course, and with a vacant lot next door it feels nicely private. The Golf Course Clubhouse is only 1/2 mi. away. The lower bedroom has its own electric heater/stove. Our favorite space is the east facing outside covered deck large enough to accomodate many and includes a patio table + 6 chairs, additional seating wicker couch, a swinging bench, and BBQ. The cabin is simple but efficient. Rooms are generous with lots of windows. Ceiling fans keep the air moving if needed, and a woodburning stove makes the great room very cozy. Satelite TV is available.

When there are no fire restrictions you can enjoy a fire in the firepit out back. Please be EXTREMELY CAREFUL as fire danger can be great.

Thank you for the wonderful home and setting. Our party of five adults had ample room to relax and enjoy the Rocky Mountains. Wildlife was abundant with a bull moose walking right past our bedroom window. After 50 miles of hiking during our stay the cabin amenities were welcomed.

Owner's Response: I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay! Wow! 50 miles- you must have seen much of what RMNP offers! Come again! If you cross country ski this is a great region as well.

Kay it was exceptional -- all was perfect. I appreciate your willingness to open up your cabin to us. Our family enjoyed it, seen moose and fox playing. It is a wonderful get away. We are from ND and farm so to see the mountains is a treat.

Thank you again and I would recommend to all.

Terrific place!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great! Very clean, terrific deck with porch swing, table and chairs, great for enjoying the mountain weather, any time of day or evening! The cabin had a fully equiped kitchen and lots of sleeping space. We had a wonderful time. Everything you need to make a great stay and close to Rocky Mtn National Park and Grand Lake.

Property borders the Grand Lake Golf Course in the 'back yard'. It has an open view across the Golf Course to the mountains. Listen to the Elk bugle in the Fall right from the cabin. Enjoy the best golfing in the county or walk the golf course in the evening to enjoy open spaces and the mountainous horizon or the often seen Elk herds and Moose. Walk the road all the way around Columbine Lake about 2 miles. Fish in one of the many area lakes, or fly fish the Colorado River. Many nearby trails for both Mountain Biking or Hiking or just sit by the fire pit and enjoy starry nights.

Entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is less than 3 miles for a scenic drive over Trail Ridge Road, hiking, or wild animal viewing. Don't forget your camera AND a coat, the highest continuous paved road in the USA. Visit Kawanechee visitor center before you go up. There is also a visitor center/cafe at the top and some breathtaking trails to look-outs along the way. Always bring a jacket. It's ALWAYS cold up top. The other side of Trail Ridge is Estes Park, another quaint tourist mountain town. Usually you will see elk and other large wild life along the way.

Fish at any of the 3 lakes in the area: Grand Lake, Shadow Mountain Reservoir, or Granby Reservoir or visit the town public docks for a view across Grand Lake to the mountains. Fish right from the dock! Boat in any of the 3 lakes. Boat rentals available.

Grand Lake Village is only 3 miles away with many quaint shops, coffee shops, and restaurants. You WON'T find chain businesses here! It's all local and wonderful!

Winter time enjoy Nordic skiing on the same golf course with 30 miles of groomed trails. Ski to the lodge 1/2 mi. away. Moonlight skiing 4 times per season. Fabulous tubing in the winter at the Nordic Center FREE! Tubes supplied! Safe and fun for children of all ages! Downhill ski at Granby Ski Ranch or Winter Park. Thirty to 45 minutes away respectively.

Rent cross country skiis or snowshoes at the Nordic Center or in town at Never Summer Sports.
