Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a perfect Christmas vacation at your house. The outdoor Christmas lights and Christmas were an excellent surprise! Then we entered and just loved the indoor Christmas tree and decorations. Thanks for making our stay extra festive and a vacation we will always remember. There was plenty of room for our three families. The fireplaces make it real cozy. We'll be back sometime in the summer months. Great area!

Wonderful place for 7 friends for a weekend get-away. House is just as described in the write-up. Spacious and spread out over two floors. The kitchen was better stocked with spices, etc than my own! The BBQ grill was nice, plenty of dishes, silverware, cook-ware. Lots of little packages of condiments was a nice touch! The owner provides plenty of detailed info (how the TV system works, where the extra leaf for the table is located, etc, etc). House was easy to find, located 2 blocks off the Hiway, 2 1/2 blocks from the lakeshore itself, and about 3 miles from the town of Grand Lake. The lot is large enough that we never heard noise from the neighbors. The owner is easy to work with via phone and e-mail to take care of the contract and payment. He mailed my damage deposit back the same day we checked out. Our group is already talking about returning to this home next year!

This house is great! Roger is extremely easy to work with. He really knows what the renter wants. It is hard to find a place in Grand Lake with a 2 night minimum and at such a great price, but this place has it all. There were 9 of us staying in the cabin and everyone fit comfortably - 4 couples, and 1 single. 5 of us girls even got ready in the master bathroom with no issues! There was plenty of room, seats, and kitchen gadgets. The view from the porch is incredibly beautiful and relaxing. There was plenty of room in the yard/driveway to play yard games all weekend. There are other houses around but they are just far enough away that you can play music on the great sound system. Also, I was really impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin and how quick Roger got the damage deposit back to me. I would like to say bad things about this place so that I can keep it as my little secret, but I just can't! :-) Our group is already planning on visiting again next summer. Thank you Roger!

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time we have stayed at this house and we had a blast. The house is very roomy and has everything that you could possibly need. The deck is wonderful and there is plenty of room to set up games in the yard. It is a great place for a family reunion. My grandchildren had a ball.

We even got to meet the owner of the property and he is wonderful, how great that he opens up his home for many people to enjoy. We will be back.

July Vacation

Roger, the owner of the property was great to work with! His communication related to the property was excellent.
The house itself was wonderful. There were 6 of us plus 4 dogs. LOTS of space for all of us. Anything that could have been needed for our stay was there.
Be sure to read and understand the instructions related to bears. Our first night, we saw a bear walking down the road in front of the house.
Absolutely no complaints. Would recommend the home and the area in Colorado!

At the western edge of Rocky Mountain National Park sits the historic town of Grand Lake, Colorado. It is a town where one steps back into time, where the store owners proudly manage their businesses, and greet visitors every day from their western boardwalk storefronts. It is home to fabulous dining, overseen by local restaurateurs, and 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. It is a place that houses the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre, and frequent festivals and parades.

Grand Lake, Colorado is steeped in rich western history, which is embodied in our daily culture. One may find horses parked outside local establishments alongside cars. Once home to the Ute Indian Tribe, the spirit of the west is alive in Grand Lake, long after the tribe dispersed. The former County seat, Grand Lake lost the title in a wild west shoot-out. There are historic walking tours, museums, and other opportunities to immerse yourself in the way of the west during your visit to Grand Lake.

It is where nature grabs your soul, and visitors understand the feeling of being able to really breathe again here. Its namesake, Grand Lake, is the deepest natural lake in Colorado, dipping to 265 feet. Fed by high mountain runoff, the lake is clear and pristine. Home to the Colorado River Headwaters, streams and rivers snake through the area, inviting you to fish and hike along their waters. In the spring watch the wildlife emerge from Rocky Mountain National Park, cow moose and their young calves toddle across our local streets. In the summer months visitors can explore the lake by boat, kayak, and even paddle boards. Horseback riding, ATVs, and cycling opportunities are as plentiful in the area as the trout are in our waters. Golf, hot air balloon, and live your dreams here.

Winter also invites visitors to play in Grand Lake’s winter wonderland. Grand Lake is the “Snowmobile Capital of Colorado,” with over 125 miles of groomed trails. Cross Country ski, ice fish, create a snowman, and watch snowflakes peacefully fall to the ground and build upon gathering snow. A thriving creative community is alive in Grand Lake; local artists and galleries are must-sees! Grand Lake invites you to our home, full of year round stunning natural beauty, and the opportunity to actualize what you only dreamed existed. Welcome to Grand Lake, Colorado.

Let me know what I can do to arrange a GRAND vacation for you!
