Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Come stay in our charming, mountain lake home and enjoy the gorgeous, 180 degree views of Rocky Mountain National Park and Shadow Mountain Lake. Cook up a hearty breakfast in the kitchen and enjoy a cup of coffee while savoring the views, quiet location, and easy access to numerous activities. An artesian spring and willow bushes provide natural attractions for moose, fox, elk and other animals which you will likely see during your visit.

Spend a fun-filled day skiing, snowshoeing or browsing the shops in Grand Lake. How about sledding or cross country skiing with your family? This cabin is the ideal place for you to make those special memories that will last a lifetime. Have fun hanging out together and getting away from it all - enjoy board games, doing a puzzle, or just relaxing in the laid back Colorado mountains.

Have lunch or dinner in one of the many fine local restaurants. Perhaps you will decide to explore the night life in the valley, or maybe a relaxing evening at home is in order. The full kitchen has everything you need to make a wonderful home-cooked meal.

Return to the cozy cabin after a busy day in the mountains and sink into the soft recliner couch with a bowl of popcorn to watch a movie. When it's time for bed, climb our signature spiral staircase to the master bedroom and loft, aka 'the fort,' which is perfect for the young and the young at heart. Then nestle under the warm quilts for sweet dreams, until you awake to another amazing day in Grand Lake, Colorado.

**We also own the Moose Cabin, #218770. Rent one or both cabins! They are on the same 1/2 acre, but separate. A great place for two families to stay.*** OR consider our Grey Fox Condo in Granby Ranch #4352958. Ski, golf, fish, and mountain bike in this gorgeous valley and then relax in our well appointed condo. Ski-in/ski-out!

About Angie Zimmerer

We love the Grand Lake area and all of the outdoor activities it offers. We especially enjoy relaxing at the cabin when we are not going up to do chores! As lovely as the cabin is, we are always making improvements. We believe if we are comfortable there, our guests will be as well.

We're both Colorado natives who love sharing our beautiful state with visitors. We are CU Buffs, with two children who are also Buffs. We love skiing, climbing, biking, sewing, wine and microbrew tasting, and spending time with our family when we can get them together!

Angie Zimmerer purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Angie Zimmerer chose Rocky Mountain National Park

This 1950's cabin started out as an A-frame, which later saw some major additions. It is a unique cabin with fun decor, and gorgeous views. We stay there frequently, and are always making improvements. Come up to enjoy skiing, hiking, wildlife, views, fishing, boating, snowshoeing!

What makes this cabin unique

Frequently, we have moose, elk, and foxes wander across our property. Grill on the lower deck, and roast marshmallows out by the fire pit.

The winter snowfalls are amazing. Stay warm inside or choose one of the many outdoor adventures. The summers are cooler than where we live in Boulder, and we can see far more stars!

There is much less traffic and smaller crowds in Grand Lake than other CO tourist destinations. Come play in our wonderful mountain paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

and how clean it is. We really enjoyed our stay. Our last adventure was having a hummingbird get stuck in the house. We finally got it out, poor baby. Hope to come again. :)

Very nice, exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin and friendly owners. Lots of games for the kids to play and plenty of extras to make you comfortable. Cabin is close to town and the National Park. Hot Sulphur Springs isn't far. Very positive experience

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing our cabin for your stay! I hope you don't mind me mentioning how you took the train into Granby and then rented a car to get to the cabin. We always thought that sounded like a lot of fun!

Quiet and cozy with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights at Star Cabin and found it to be a quiet, cozy place with a fantastic view! It's great for kids...ours enjoyed the board games and of course the sleeping fort. We had initially looked at places in Granby since we were skiing at Granby Ski Ranch but boy are we glad we ended up in Grand Lake at Star Cabin...way better than a condo and much cuter town. It's beautiful to be on the lake and just outside the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Adorable and relaxing cabin, perfect for kids

  • 4 of 5

We had a blast staying here for a weekend getaway! Our boys (ages 3&4) spent the days sledding the hill behind the house and roasting marshmallows by the fire. They absolutely loved the fort and played up there while we hung out downstairs. Angie was very responsive and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time. The cabin was located in an ideal spot with easy access to everything. We spent evenings by the fire enjoying the views from the cabin.

Beautiful views inside a cozy adorable cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Angie and her husband made sure our stay was cozy and comfortable. The cabin is as pictured and adorable in every fashion (including the super cute secret fort!) my boyfriend, friend, and I had a wonderful time here as it was minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park and close to winter park as well. We brought time back by playing the kids board games and watching the DVDs left for us HA. The morning views are spectacular. We would love to stay here in the summer months to enjoy new adventures and views! Thank you!

My second stay here and It was as great as last time. A new bigger shower upstairs was a welcome add. Wonderful atmosphere and close to so many great activities. Thanks again Angie. I'll definitely be back next winter.
