About Gillian Norton

This house is a dream come true for us

Gillian Norton purchased this house in 2015

Why Gillian Norton chose Rocky Mountain National Park

When we first saw this property for sale, hiked up the ridge and were presented with the spectacular views we knew we had found our dream location. This was in 2013 and over the next year and a half we enjoyed working with our builder, one of the best in Grand County. Completion day in 2015 was a big event and we invite you to share this unique residence.

What makes this house unique

Loved the home, the views, and all the amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend at this beautiful home up near Grand Lake!! The views were outstanding and we were not disappointed in anyway with this home! The owners were so accommodating which made our stay even better than expected!! We had plenty of room to spread out with 9 adults, 2 children, and a baby! loved that the dining table was large enough that we could eat our meals all together at one table !! Definitely would recommend this beautiful home and hoping to return sometime soon!!

Beautiful property with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful. We were in town for a wedding this was by far the best property compared to others who stayed in town. I couldn't stop looking out the window at the amazing views, which can be seen from any location in the home including all the bedrooms. The house is well equipped with everything you need.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location to enjoy the beauty of the area..from watching the sunrise to laying in bed to view the stars. Be sure to look around in the house..everything from griddles to high chairs is available. The downstairs area becomes a private apartment if desired. We loved the fact that this was a contemporary home and not a "moose" lodge. The most important information that I can pass along is...the turn onto the driveway is extremely sharp..if you drive past the driveway a few hundred feet there is a cul de sac in which you can easily turn and return to hit the driveway with more ease. I would Imagine that snow would require a four wheel drive vehicle. One nice thing..each guest leaves a little behind for the next..cheese, olive oil, spices, etc..we added to that but also left a vase of flowers from our son's wedding.

Beautiful location and great house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful location for a week and it was heavenly! The house was perfect. At the beginning of our stay, we had four other couples who stayed with us and they loved it as well. After they left, my daughter and her four kids came. Since her kids are seven, four, and seven-month-old twins, we were glad that the house was so spacious and so well laid out. Thanks for Sharing such a wonderful place! We will be back next year.

Perfect home for a family get away!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in this wonderful house in the mountains. Four families (8 adults and 4 children) enjoyed the views from all four sides....mountains, lakes, animals, sunrises and sunsets and fresh mountain air. The location is perfect, so close to hiking and biking, downtown shopping and town activities. The spacious house had plenty of room for kids to play downstairs, adults on the main floor, reading or playing board games and just plain visiting. Very large kitchen and plenty of seating for all at the dining table. Could not have asked for a cleaner, perfect place for a family vacation. Would recommend this house to anyone wanting a mountain get away!

The perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We have rented vacation homes in many places for our growing family and this beautiful mountain home is now at the top of the list!! The home is spacious which allows everyone to spread out if they want to or to be together and not feel crowded. The bedroom layout is perfect, the large tables inside and out are fantastic and the view is the best!! It was the perfect spot for our family vacation as we now range from 5 months to 60 yrs.

Gillian is most gracious and replied quickly to a call I made when we arrived. I recommend this home to families who want to spend quality time in a beautiful spot. Grand Lake was a fun destination and we enjoyed hiking, boating and horseback riding. There was something for everyone in this part of the Rockies.
