About the property

Spacious Family Home In Town With Spectacular Lake And Mountain Views

Come stay at this beautiful home for a perfect summer or winter getaway. This 4 bedroom house sits on a hillside with panoramic views of Shadow Mountain Lake to the south and Mt. Baldy to the east. The family-friendly vacation village of Grand Lake is a short walk away and offers restaurants, cafes, galleries, western themed shops, ice cream parlors, a small grocery store, and live theater. Riding stables, a go-cart track, and a bowling alley are also a short walk away.

In the summer enjoy fishing, hiking, boating, and golfing. The house is within minutes of the western entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park. You can hike right into the park from the town of Grand Lake or drive Trail Ridge Road, which crests at over 12,000 feet and has many overlooks of this unique alpine and subalpine world. Hike into the backcountry, summit a peak, or go on a Ranger led activity; you are close to everything this 100 year old National Park has to offer.

Wildlife activity in the area is common in both summer and winter. It is common to see elk and moose year around. Pica, marmots, deer, and bighorn sheep are frequently seen in the national park.

In winter you can hit the trails on snowshoes or cross country skis. There is a great Nordic ski center nearby which also has a free tubing hill and the town maintains a small skating rink in winter that is free to the public. The low key ski area Granby Ranch is 25 minutes away, and the large ski resort of Winter Park is just 45 minutes away for those who need more extreme terrain.

The home features an open floor plan with a well supplied kitchen opening onto the living and dining rooms, with high ceilings, fireplace, and large windows looking out onto the lake and mountains. The Great Room opens out to a large deck where you can relax and enjoy the views and mountain air. The dining room table has room to seat ten with room for three more along the kitchen bar. The open loft above the Great Room offers additional living space with TV, sleeper sofa, and table for board games and puzzles with 5 chairs.

The private master suite, just off the loft, has a king-size bed and a full bathroom with large jetted tub and separate shower. On the main level are two additional bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with two twin beds, and a full bath. On the lower level is the kid's teen's hideaway - a bunk bed with a double bed on the bottom, and a twin size bed with trundle. The lower level also includes a 3/4 bathroom and washing machine and dryer.

WiFi and cable TV are provided and there is a DVD player and CD player in the living room.

About Dave

Our family has been coming to Grand Lake regularly since we moved to Colorado from California in 2004.

Dave purchased this house in 2015

Why Dave chose Rocky Mountain National Park

We love the friendly, small town of Grand Lake. There is so much to do here every season of the year. We enjoy relaxing with family in this beautiful setting.


Nearest Airport
125 Miles
Denver International Airport
Car: recommended

The house is a short walk into the town of Grand Lake and has easy access to the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park. You can hike or snowshoe into the national park right from town. Very near to town is a golf course and Nordic Ski center, and the town sits on the shores of Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain lake with all the fishing, boating, and canoeing activities those lakes offer. Downhill skiing is a short 25 minute drive away at Ski Granby and slightly longer 45 minute drive to Winter Park Resort.

Very nice.

  • 4 of 5

Great place for a family get-together. We had a great time with children and grandchildren. Nice comfortable house with everything needed (except dishcloth and dishtowels). Close to what we were interested despite rainy weather while we were there, but even that was enjoyable as we don't get a lot of rain at home.

wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

The views were just spectacular and the location couldn't have been better. The house offered everything we were looking for from an ability to all sit and have meals as one but it also allowed some privacy for everyone also.

Great place for family gathering

  • 4 of 5

The place was just what we needed for our family vacation. A little warmer than we expected, but we were able to leave the doors and windows open to get a pretty good airflow, and enjoyed all the fresh air. It was everything we needed. Thanks
