About Mary Johnson

We purchased this home on the lake as a retreat from busy lives and away from crowds. We have renovated kitchens, carpets, bedrooms and all bathrooms to feel like your own home. We liked the fact we have seen three generations of moose families grow up on our back lawn.

Mary Johnson purchased this house in 2007

Why Mary Johnson chose Rocky Mountain National Park

We have lived in several resort mountain towns in Colorado including Breckenridge, Summit County and in other homes in Grand County. This one has an amazing views of true untouched Colorado wilderness, and we can sit on our dock on the water to watch fish jump in the glorious evening sunsets. And we left the crowds behind. Sorry, no outlet malls near here!

What makes this house unique

Unobstructed viewing of the Milky Way after sunset is a plus. Remarkable wildlife viewing from the deck that we never saw on our expeditions to Alaska. We can hike in Rocky Mtn National Park, hear the elk bugle, and be back home in our canoe within 20 minutes. Its the best of what Colorado was at the turn of the last century, a true west experience. Coffee in the morning watching fish jump at sunrise from the couch makes life worth living at Moose Lodge. We ask guests to keep the community quiet and observe quiet hours at dark.

Very nice, relaxing location for my wife's birthday

  • 5 of 5

My wife wanted to go somewhere to see some moose for her birthday. We didn't see any moose during our stay but did see a nice herd of elk less than a mile from the property. The home was very nicely decorated and very up to date. Very clean and well maintained.The lakefront location was great and the view was gorgeous. We went to Rocky Mountain Park several times and it couldn't have been more convenient to the park entrance.Having the small refrigerator and coffee maker in the lower level is a nice touch, if you have a house full of people. My only recommendation would be to have one larger TV for watching football games.

Comfortable, inviting home with a beautiful lake view!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year to the Grand Lake area, vacationing with our daughter, son-in-law and their three little ones. This home was perfect for our family, so comfortable and inviting, with a cozy feel but lots of room. The house was beautiful inside and out, with extremely tasteful decorations complimentary of the area, nice furnishings, historical antiques, and great art work and books. The deck was great, loved the view of the lake, and lake access was so convenient with a good dock for the kids. We liked being there so much that we didn't even go into town for dinner! But we did take advantage of RMNP being so close and did lots of hiking. Oh, and the moose sightings were a real plus! We'll definitely be back!

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

we rented the house for a family wedding - it far exceeded our expectations. we were a mixed group of family members and spouses, multigenerational - the house was set up in a way to allow everyone some privacy when needed. the accommodations were very comfortable - the beds and linens of good quality and the bathrooms modern and good looking. everything was sparkling - clean and in good repair. the decor was perfect cabin/lodge. comfortable furniture - especially great were the rocking chairs - with a study area. great access to a deck, also well furnished and comfortable. the lake is awesome - sitting on the dock at the end of the day with a cocktail, using the canoe and trying to catch those wily fish, enjoying the peace and quiet - although the lake has many houses, it was surprisingly quiet. the wildlife exceeded all expectations - indeed, we had a moose at the dock, also many hummingbirds, an osprey, the otters all around the dock - awesome! the proximity to the park was also a huge plus - we could be on the trails in the early AM, beat the crowds, back for lunch and out again - easy. we prepared most of our meals in the house - well appointed kitchen with everything we needed to feed the crowd. nothing negative to say, this is a great rental house and we will return in the future!!!

thanks, mary.
