Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-13)

Spend your vacation or holidays enjoying the Magic of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Three Lakes area within an easy walk from this home located in the Arapahoe National Recreation Area. Enjoy the beauty and majesty of the Rocky Mountains and Grand Lake just outside your door from this newer, beautiful mountain home next to Shadow Mountain Lake and the Rocky Mountain National Park with panoramic views the mountains.

Grand Lake hosts some of the very best firework displays on July 4th and New Year's Eve. We recommend finding a spot closer to or in town for best views of the fireworks as you won't be able to see them from the home.

Maximize your time outdoors on the lake with the canoe and 3 Kayaks included for family fun on the water or by taking in the spectacular mountain vistas and wildlife from the many upper and lower decks . Or spend a lazy afternoon lounging on one of 4 decks while reading your favorite novel. In Winter, nestle up on the couch with your favorite book or read a story to your family as the gas fireplace glows with warmth as the snow gently falls outside the windows. (Note: you have to transport canoe or kayaks to lake with your own vehicle and tie downs)

We are just four minutes from the town of Grand Lake and the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake provides a classic 'old west' town ambiance and fun for the whole family. From there you can enjoy the shops, restaurants, mini-golf, guided horseback riding, guided and unguided snowmobile and ATV rentals, go-carts, bumper boats and more.

Rocky Mountain National Park is home to an abundant wildlife population including elk, deer, moose, bears, porcupines and foxes (many of these pass through the rental property as well). Miles of hiking and snowshoeing trails are accessible from the home as well as access to the National Park and the Arapahoe National Recreation area.

Trail Ridge Marina is just down the road and offers pontoon and sport-boat rentals. For the adventurous, you can also snowmobile across the lakes in the winter! Book early as this is a year round vacation rental and books full and fast each season. There is no better place to spend the holidays than in the mountains of Colorado.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

1. We DO NOT allow gatherings or events (family reunions, weddings, rehearsal dinners, etc.) of any kind to take place in our home. We receive multiple inquiries as such so want to provide notification here to help save you time in your vacation rental search. Strictly enforced.

2. CAMP FIRES or any OPEN FIRES are not allowed in this HOA community at any time. There is a gas bbq grill on deck for cooking only.

3. Quiet Time: 10pm to 8am is quiet time. Noise, even normal conversation, travels in the mountains and neighbors sleep with windows open as most homes have no A/C in the mountains. We require guests move indoors at 10pm.

4. Not a PARTY House: This home is designed for quality family gatherings. We discourage heavy drinking groups from booking this or any of our rental properties due to past problems. We will contact the sheriff which will lead to eviction and loss of all fees paid. Best to find another home if you are looking for a party place..

CHECK-IN TIME IS 4PM CHECK-OUT TIME IS 11AM

Comfortable & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

House worked great for four couples during a quick weekend getaway in Sept 2017. Hiked up East Inlet Trail, lounged at the Grand Lake beach, attended show at RMRT (niece in starring role), enjoyed dinner at Mustachios, and relaxed on all of the multiple decks at this very nice home! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Very nice property

  • 4 of 5

Loved waking up in the morning and having coffee on the front patio. Fun was had by all, wished the property was what my first impression that it was on the lake. But not far away. Need a vehicle to be able to carry kayaks to the lake. All things you need for your stay they have. It was hard figuring out the lighting system, especially in the main bedroom. Also the lights on the porch need to be fixed, they are loose so don't always come on. Was a little harder to play games out on the deck at the nights we played. But very spacious. Loved all the patios from the main, and upstairs. Made it very nice to do things on your own. Everything was very clean. I would go back again. The last day was spent just hanging at the house, no need to go anywhere since it had a great homey feeling.

Outstanding Stay in Grand Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay! The property met or exceeded all of our expectations. The home had all the amenities that we needed such as internet, TV, and a wide array of cooking utensils including trash bags, coffee filters, dishwasher detergent, etc. The home was clean and neat when we arrived (and departed). This home is a great value near the town of Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park. Joe, we would suggest some written instructions for the TV and the various remotes. Took us awhile to figure it out.
