About Mike Monley

Our family, which includes my wife our two daughters born in 2000 and 2002 and myself have been going to Grand Lake in all 4 seasons since 2005. We love the area for all it has to offer and the close proximity to Denver. We are less than 2 hours from Denver and have everything including the fresh mountain air, the lakes, snowmobiling, skiing, ATV trails, hiking, fishing and hunting.

Mike Monley purchased this house in 2011

Why Mike Monley chose Rocky Mountain National Park

It's a beautiful house. We all love the layout. The main floor is completely open with the livingroom, kitchen and dining room all wide open to each other and a 1/2 bath on the main floor. There is a gas stove in the living room that looks like a wood burner, it is so cozy in the Fall and Winter, expecially when it's snowing out. All the bedrooms are upstairs and very nicely laid out.

Nice place if you stay inside

  • 3 of 5

Very spacious, comfortable living room and kitchen. Bedrooms were nice, beds are comfortable. The back patio area is small and close to a main busy road with traffic noise - it could use some landscaping/fence/flowers -something. There is a house across the street that has a front yard completely covered in junk which detracts from the ambience of the area. So if you want to relax outside there really isn't a good view. I have stayed in many VRBO homes and have never experienced the list of rules of what to do when you leave (it was initially a turn-off), but it only took 10 minutes or so to follow the instructions. We did not cook in the house, but the kitchen looked nicely stocked with necessary equipment. Bring shower supplies - shampoo, conditioner, shower gel.

Owner's Response: Hello, we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We have been renting this house for 5 years and have never heard negative feedback about the yard. The back of the house is filled with trees which block much of the noise and the front of the house looks directly at the road. There is a nice porch in the front and a deck in the back. Landscaping in Grand Lake is very challenging and very few homes are professionally landscaped.

Dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

My sister, my daughter, our three dogs and I had a wonderful time at this cabin. It felt comfortable and plenty of open space in the house for our small dog and two larger dogs. The owner was very available for questions and very pleasant.

Perfect home for our girls' getaway adventure!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our 4-night stay. Everything we needed was provided. We like to cook in all but one night so the crock pots made it easy to have dinner almost done after a long day of hiking! It was also very handy to have the laundry available. We arrived from the east side of The Park with plenty of used hiking clothes so freshening up stuff was easy! We especially enjoyed our evenings out on the deck. The local fox is quite beautiful. Thank you for such a nicely planned and comfortable home for our use! The Grand Lake community seems rather nice as well. The Rotary Pancake Breakfast on the Saturday morning of our departure was the icing on the cake - since 3/4 of us are Rotarians! We also left knowing the secret ingredient for the pancakes....Thank you for a great place to stay!

Wonderful location and home

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for our 4 nights near Grand Lakes to hike in Rocky Mountain National Park and Indian Peaks Wilderness Area. The location was perfect - we rarely had to drive more than 30 minutes to get to any of our hikes and there were several restaurants nearby including Stillwater Grill, which was 1/4 mile away, between Grand Lake and Granby if we wanted to eat out. The house was very clean and homey. It was great to come home after a hiking most of the day to a spacious and well-lit living room that made us feel at home. The kitchen was huge and it was very easy for both of us to work on meals or prepare lunches to take with us on our hikes. Finally, while we were hiking, the internet went down at the place and Mike sent us a note immediately to tell us how to restore internet service - we never had to call. We would definitely stay here again when we return to the Grand Lake area and would recommend it to our friends.

Quiet mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We found everything we needed in this home. It is a spacious, well kept home in Grand Lake. The location is great; a quick ride to Grand Lake Village or the AA Barn. We had a good stay. Thank you!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was much bigger than we needed, but for a very good price when comparing all places to stay in Grand Lake with the pet friendly policy and privacy we wanted. We always prefer somewhere with a functional kitchen and this cabin far exceeded our expectations! It was fully stocked with dishes and cooking utensils plus some! House was clean and comfortable and the grill on the back deck made for some amazing meals. I don't have a single complaint for this home and would love to stay again. I highly recommend this cabin!
