Come enjoy the extraordinary beauty and warm friendliness of Grand Lake, Colorado with its abundance of Summer and Winter activities! Built in 2006, this well-appointed 2000+ sq ft home is centrally located in Grand Lake, just above the very charming Grand Lake Village with its old west buildings, boarded sidewalks and friendly residents. It is adjacent to the historic Grand Lake Lodge property, which provides for a peaceful mountain retreat.

From the gorgeous great room with hand-built, river rock fireplace, or spacious deck, savor the beauty of majestic Mount Baldy and sparkling views of Shadow Mountain Lake and Grand Lake! Take in the starry sky on a warm summer night while relaxing on the deck. Watch the best fireworks in the Rocky Mountains from the deck on the 4th of July or New Year’s Eve. In the winter when road snow pack allows, hop on your snowmobile right outside the door and ride into town or hook up with a trail. There are so many things to do and memories to make in Colorado’s best-kept secret!

Grand Lake Village and Grand Lake are within easy walking distance at less than one half mile away. Shadow Mountain Lake is less than one mile away. You’ll have easy access to over 100 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, enjoying the lakes, or shopping, and eating in town. Lake Gran by is just a few miles down the road.

The West entrance to a national treasure – Rocky Mountain National Park, where you may encounter moose, big horn sheep, or elk herds, is a little over two miles away. Incredible Colorado skiing is nearby with Sol Vista Ski Resort only twenty minutes away; Colorado’s playground - Winter Park Ski Resort only forty minutes away; and Steamboat Ski Resort, with its legendary champagne powder is a little over an hour away!

About Aaron Lay

We are 4 friends that live in Denver and have been great friends for years. Our names are Jadd, Aaron, Craig and Troy. We all love to travel and decided to take a weekend vacation to Grand Lake in the summer of 2015. We fell in love with the charm of the town and the majestic beauty of the area.

This house is our vacation home that we will occupy throughout the year and will truly enjoy sharing it with guests. We want to share it with you as well.

We named the house 'The Eagle's Nest Lodge' because the house is perched above the town with unbelievable views from 'up above' of Shadow Mountain Lake & Grand Lake, and the beautiful Rocky Mountains. When you take a vacation here, life doesn't get much better than this. Contact us to reserve your vacation at 'The Eagle's Nest Lodge'.

Why Aaron Lay chose Grand Lake

When we bought the house we wanted to be able to walk into town but still have the peaceful serenity we enjoy with the empty space behind our home where we often see wildlife. The perfect location for us was on a hill directly north of the town. Our backyard opens up to an unimproved area that is owned by Grand Lake Lodge. We have ~15 acres that separates us from the Lodge. It is less than a 1/2 mile walk down the hill into town. We think you’ll love the location. We've enjoyed being close to town but also enjoyed seeing moose, elk and deer in our own yard. We believe it's the perfect combination of lake/mountain views, close proximity to town and peaceful mountain serenity. It is true mountain lodging at its best.

What makes this house unique

Grand Lake is a year round destination. During the summer you can enjoy boating on the 3 lakes, hiking, mountain biking, ATVs, 4th of July fireworks, and the list goes on. During the winter months Grand Lake is the snowmobiling capital of Colorado with over 100 miles of groomed trails. Skiing choices are numerous between the cozy Solvista resort nearby, Colorado's play ground at Winter Park and legendary champagne powder of Steamboat Springs. Perhaps the greatest year round draw of the area is Rocky Mountain National Park with it amazing scenery and abundance of wildlife.

Spectacular location and views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in Grand Lake. The house was perfect for our family get together. Morning breakfast on the deck overlooking the lake with the mountains in the distance is something I will always remember. Thanks!

Couples get away for fall colors

  • 5 of 5

The house was very functional for us and well stocked. The lake views are fantastic. It's a very serene property and area. We lucked out, because is was Constitution Week, so there was a great fireworks display that can be seen from the deck. Grand Lake has some of the best fireworks in Colorado. I would recommend this house, owners are quick to respond too.
