Awesome Vacation Getaway in Columbine Lake!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 23, 2016
4 Bedrooms - 3 Baths - (Sleeps 11)

We welcome you to our mountain house! Our extended family has had wonderful times here and we hope yours will, too. We are proud of the condition of our home and hope you will enjoy the moose theme. In fact we have seen real moose on more than half of our visits! It's the perfect place to enjoy nature without roughing it.

Moose Hus is fully furnished so you'll feel right at home. The large living room and dining area with cast-iron gas stove and cathedral ceiling is the place where everyone gathers for TV(HD), DVD, games, and conversation. The modern kitchen is conveniently nearby.

In winter, enjoy snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, skating, and sledding. In summer, participate in hiking, boating, fishing, horseback riding, golfing and picnicking. You might even find it interesting to walk through the historic Grand Lake cemetery.

Enjoy your stay!

Summer Vacation July 6-13, 2009

  • 5 of 5

This house was just right for our family of 12 (9 adults, 3 children-12,9, and 3). Great living/dining space for everyone to relax and do their thing. The kids used the loft for reading and playing. The bedrooms are all good size. We never felt cramped. The kitchen is well equipped. The cabin is beautifully located in natural pine setting. Lots of great hiking trails. The unpaved streets in the Columbina Lake neighborhood are wonderful for early morning and late evening walks and jogs. The owners are very congenial and easy to work with.

Moose Hus vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a lovely vacation! The home is located only 5 minutes from the town of Grand Lake and 5 minutes from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. We saw a fox from the balcony, a bull moose in the neighborhood, and a falling star from the balcony! We had a table that accommodated all of us for meals and games after dinner! Everyone had plenty of space to rest and relax for our adventure the next day! I would definitely recommend the Moise Hus to family and friends for their vacation!

Anniversary Celebration in Grand Lake, CO

  • 5 of 5

Moose Hus is absolutely wonderful!! We went to Grand Lake (where we got married) with family to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. I searched and looked at several cabins and finally decided on Moose Hus. Happy to say I made a great decision. Moose Hus was perfect for our vacation. It's the perfect distance away from Grand Lake in a quiet development with a beautiful view, not to mention the amazing wildlife! The photo's and description listed are exactly how it is. Julie is so nice and it was a great pleasure to work with her!! Highly recommend Moose Hus!!

Wedding and Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Moose Hus was a wonderful gathering place for family from New Zealand, Ohio, California, Colorado Springs and Littleton. We were staying in several properties but the open dining area and deck with a grill made hosting a family barbecue easy and enjoyable. The kitchen was well equipped and having bedrooms and bathrooms on three different floors gave lots of privacy and space to everyone. Quick and easy access to town and to the Shadow Mountain Recreation Area where the wedding was held. Living up to its name, we saw two yearling moose walk across the street in front of the property on our first evening. We highly recommend.

Lovely Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had last minute plan to go up to Winter Park ski area and looked up Moose Hus at vrbo.com. Even though it was last minute, Julie was accommodating and allowed the reservation process go smoothly. The house was clean, and everything was same as explained. With detailed instruction, it was helpful to get around the area and know where things are. I would recommend this place to anyone, and we will definitely go back in the summer!
