Beautiful God's country spectacular getaway!

Beautiful God's country spectacular getaway!
  • 5 of 5
Grand Lake has long been a family getaway. However, we have never stayed anywhere so beautiful! This spectacular home is right on the lake, within walking distance of the main strip and faces Mount Baldy from all of the decks. We were able to utilize the elevator to transport all of the food and libations to the second floor and luggage to our Master suite on the third floor. The sunken hot tub on the deck overlooking an indescribable awesome view will now be one of my new "happy places". The home offers a kitchen with a bevy of serving dishes, dual refrigerators, a comfy great room and all of the amenities needed for a perfect getaway. All of our guests are already planning there next visit to this amazing property. Thank you Joann for being so sweet and accommodating!

What a magical trip and magical house

  • 5 of 5
The property was everything in the pictures and more. the multi storey house had great heating, was very clean, huge kitchen, big screen tv and was literally right on the lake. The spa was a nice touch, especially when the snow is coming down. I would stay here again and our hosts provided good directions to get there also. 5/5

LOVELY stay!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough wonderful things about my stay in Grand Lake at Joann & David's beautiful home. I was looking for a very peaceful place to spend my 29th birthday and this fit the bill perfectly. Location wise, you are literally at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, and directly on the lake.

The master suite is the entire third floor and no expense was spared in the build of this home. From the radiant heating, gourmet kitchen with double fridges and Viking cooktop, infrafred outdoor grill, amazing big screen TV, to the deck views, I just cannot say enough. I loved every minute of our stay, and the elevator made it a breeze to load in groceries and bags from the ground floor up to the other levels. Can't wait to get back for another visit!

White Christmas for an Aussie family!

  • 5 of 5
This place was awesome! We travelled from Australia to spend Christmas with friends from Denver, CO and loved staying here. Plenty of room for our two families, great views over the lake and towards the mountainds, close to amenities in town and our kids loved the snow. Overall a perfect location for our travel plans and wish we could spend Christmas here every year - almost worth the 9,000 miles each way!
