Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had our entire family stay there 3 generations and enjoyed it. Great location, the house was beautiful. Plenty of beds and bathrooms, high end kitchen. Great directions and Doug was great to deal with. Great communication and helped us out a lot.

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples with four kids between us spent three nights in the house. As other another reviewer mentioned, the photos don't really do the house justice. I was specifically looking for a house where all the bedrooms were equally nice - and this was the place. All four bedrooms could technically be called master bedrooms, although the true master bedroom is the size of a small apartment! Besides the four bedrooms there were two sets of bunk beds downstairs which the boys loved! And the sitting room downstairs was perfect for the kids to hang out while the adults spend time upstairs and on the decks. The house is beautifully appointed, decorated to perfection. The kitchen is fully stocked (except for a toaster - we couldn't find one), so we improvised and made French toast instead. Problem solved! I had a few questions and requests for Doug, the owner, before and throughout the stay and he responded very quickly and was always accommodating. I always rent from owners as opposed to management companies and this is why. Owners seem to be much more helpful and Doug proves my point. This house is maybe a five minute drive to town, but it didn't bother us a bit. Plenty of parking in town and the house was so nice we actually spent most of our time and ate our meals at the house. This house sits on Shadow Lake which is just down from Grand Lake. Also, you can walk to a trail head right from the house. It's about a 25 minute walk over the dam but when the scenery is so beautiful, we were happy to make the stroll. This house is perfect for groups and for those that like a little a luxury. I would go back in a heartbeat.

This property blew me away. The pictures on the listing couldn't even begin to show how amazing it is. Top of the line appliances, super lush beds, and plenty of space to speak out. The owner Doug was also amazing. Very quick to respond to my emails and made my first time renting through VRBO painless. I would rent from him/this property again in a heartbeat.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed the long Holiday weekend with family and friends. Great home to relax in with plenty of space. We had 6 adults and 6 children in the house and didn't feel crowded at all. We went skiing, snowmobiling and tubing while enjoying the snow and beautiful landscape of the Grand Lake area.
