Description of the Grand Lake vacation home rental
In summer be mesmorized by the light of the full moon glistening across the lake in a golden path right up to your window.In Winter, spend the Holidays enjoying the Magic of the glistening snowflakes tenderly falling on the lake and mountains while the glow of the wood burning fireplace warms your soul.

Enjoy the beauty and majesty of the Rocky Mountains and Grand Lake from this beautiful chalet-style home overlooking Shadow Mountain Lake and the Rocky Mountain National Park.

Maximize your time outdoors on the HUGE upper and lower decks, both overlooking Shadow Mountain Lake. Or spend a lazy afternoon lounging in the hammocks while reading your favorite novel. In Winter, nestle up on the couch with your favorite book or read a story to your family as the wood burning fireplace glows with warmth as the snow gently falls out the window wall in the living room.

We are just four minutes from the town of Grand Lake and the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake provides a classic 'old west' town ambiance and fun for the whole family. From there you can enjoy the shops, restaurants, mini-golf, guided horseback riding, guided and unguided snowmobile and ATV rentals, go-carts, bumper boats and more. Walk to the marina and rent a boat from this gorgeous lake home with panorama views of the lake and mountains.

Rocky Mountain National Park is home to an abundant wildlife population including elk, deer, moose, bears, porcupines and foxes (many of these pass through the rental property as well). Miles of hiking and snowshoeing trails are accessible from the entrance to the park.

Trail Ridge Marina is just 100 yards down the road and offers pontoon and sport-boat rentals. You can also snowmobile across the lakes in the winter! Book early as this is a year round vacation rental with strong rental history and repeat renters.
There is no better place to spend vacation or the holidays than in the mountains of Colorado.
NOTE: We DO NOT allow gatherings or events (family reunions, weddings, rehearsal dinners, etc.) of any kind to take place in our home. The home is restricted to the specific number of guests staying in the home that we approve and can accommodate for sleeping. We receive multiple inquiries as such so want to provide notification here to help save you time in your vacation rental search.
Area Information
At the western edge of Rocky Mountain National Park sits the historic town of Grand Lake, Colorado.

It is home to fabulous dining, overseen by local restaurateurs, designed to give visitors the optimal dining experience. Grand Lake is a town that buzzes to life at night; live music resonates from local lodges and saloons beckoning patrons inside for premiere entertainment.

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
The lake view and the feeling of being right on the water from the living room or deck. You can throw a stone in the water from here. Our guests write about seeing rainbows, thunderstorms, full moon glows coming across the lake. I like to shut off all the lights in the home and just look at the moon reflect on the lake as it looks like a path of gold light coming right up to you. The alpenglow on the mountains in the early evenings is ever changing so don't take your eyes off of it for a minute. Priceless!

Perfect space for family celebration, incredible views!

We rented this large home to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday and we were very impressed with the amount of personal space we all had. The kitchen, to boot, had just about every possible cooking utensil/pot/pan/etc that one could ever need! We loved the large oversized fridge. But better was the incredible view from the living room. It was healing to just sit and stare out. Also, it's much closer to downtown Grand Lake than it looks on a map, it's just a quick ride into town – close to hiking trails, restaurants, great fishing spots. We're already trying to decide when we can rent this house again.

My Response
Thank you so much Liz, we are thrilled your dad's 60th birthday celebration was a hit and appreciate your kind words. An update: yesterday we put in a larger dining room set that will expand from a 4 person round table up to an 8 person table with two leafs (in closet). We leave it with one leaf in for 6 but it provides flexibility depending on group size. We moved the other dining table and benches out to the sun porch but they can be brought in for even larger groups of up to 14 sitting down and eating together.

The house was exactly as advertised, the view was awesome, the stars sparkled like crazy (even caught the International Space Station flying high above). We had three families in the house in three of the bedrooms and had one bedroom to spare. The two decks provided incredible space to enjoy the outdoors. There were even provided hammocks to use on the lower deck.

Thanks so much for your kind words and for staying at our lake home, we are so glad you enjoyed it as much as we do. Definitely the hammocks on the lower deck are my favorite relaxation spot!

OH. MY. GOODNESS. Excuse my caps, but this happens to be the absolute most BEAUTIFUL place I've ever been my entire life! Extremely clean and to be honest, the photos do not do their view any justice. Sitting out on the deck while eating dinner, watching the sunset, and overlooking the Rockies is probably my fondest memory. We drove Trail Ridge Road in it's entirety which I highly recommend. We will definitely be back! Response from Owner: WOW, Thanks a Million for such an AWESOME review Denise, We are THRILLED you enjoyed our mountain home as much as we do! There is MAGIC in this area for all those who will find it and you obviously found it! Please come again soon! Joe & Sue

Perfect house for family vacation in Grand Lake!
We couldn't be happier with our experience. As advertised, the views can't be beat! The two decks are amazing for sunbathing. Plenty of space for multiple families. Excellent great room for everyone to be together. We loved that it was so close to the town, lake and the national park. Will definitely be visiting again soon!
