About Ali McDowell

We were recently introduced to the Grand Lake area and fell in love with it. So we decided to pursue the dream of owning our own cabin and making it available for others to rent. We are an extended family ownership from the Northern Colorado area. The peaceful, serene location of this cabin is what we have fallen in love with.

Ali McDowell purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Ali McDowell chose Rocky Mountain National Park

-There are many reasons we have chosen this area of Colorado to rent out and vacation. Right from our 'front door and cabin' we have spectacular views of the Never Summer Mountain Range. A 20 acre non-motorized lake located 20 yards from our porch in which you can fish, paddle boat or canoe from . An entrance to 250 miles of extended trails for 4 wheeling, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, mountain biking located only a couple miles down the road. The Grand Lake town is only a 5 minute drive and offers great dining and wonderful Grand Lake Views. Everything offered just right from the front door.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough good things about this cabin! The pictures do not do it justice. I was blown away when we arrived. Everything was in order, owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The backyard with the view was absolutely breathtaking. We saw moose, elk, muskrat (I think), pelicans daily. My kids had a blast taking canoe rides and playing in the water. We also visited Winding River Resort just down the street and cannot say enough good things about it either! Definitely make time for a trail ride! This vacation was heaven. If you come to Grand Lake, I am convinced you won't find a better spot to stay!!

Relaxing and beautiful with family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin! The amenities were perfect for our family mountain trip. The lake was fun to paddle on and my husband and father in law had a great time fly fishing. The location is perfect for taking day hiking trips into Rocky Mountain National​ Park. I would highly recommend this cabin!

Amazing, above and beyond what I expected.

  • 5 of 5

Zero complaints. A bunch of friends and I came up for spring break and had an amazing time. Close enough to town and the ski resorts to not be a hassle, but far enough away for it to feel secluded even with the neighboring cabins.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our adult kids spent 4 days around New Years . The cabin had plenty of space and the beds were very comfortable. The view was fabulous! We relaxed and enjoyed a fire in the fireplace, lots of football and used the well equipped kitchen to its fullest! It was truly a winter wonderland and we would love to return to experience Summer on the lake ..

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our son and his wife, enjoyed this cabin for the week!! We had plenty of room and spread out accordingly!! We just had a wonderful and relaxing week and were not ready to leave!! We hiked around the neighborhood and RMNP!! We saw all kinds of animals-- elk, moose, fox, turkeys, deer, and coyote!! The alpaca in the field were so cute and funny!! We come to Grand Lake once a year and this was our first stay at this cabin!! We definitely will come back to this wonderful place!! So calm, quiet, and peaceful!! Thank you for your lovely cabin!!
