Lake-front family-friendly home w/ scenic deck, fire pit & dock!

If you're looking for the ideal spot for your next group getaway, fishing adventure, or family retreat, then look no further than this waterfront Grand Lake home. Offering up to 12 guests the chance to relax while taking in sweeping lake views, magical nights by the outdoor firepit, and plenty of room to spread out, this is the perfect home for outdoor lovers! Nestled on the shores of Sun Valley Lake and about two miles to the entrance of the Rocky Mountain National Park, this home puts you right in the heart of the outdoor action. Step out onto the deck with a could of ice-cold brews and fire up the gas grill while you watch the waves roll in on the lake. Break out the board games to fill the home with laughter before heading out the fire pit to roast some marshmallows. No matter what time of year you come to visit, every season will make sure you have plenty of excursions to enjoy and relaxation around every corner.

What's Nearby:
Rocky Mt National Park (RMNP) is walkable from the cabin and is great for hiking, fishing and animal spotting! Sun Valley Lake, located on the property, is great for paddleboarding, boating, and fishing. Grand Lakes are great for renting motorboats, sailing, fishing, and swimming. Winding River Resort, just down the road, has great activities for kids like horseback riding, trail rides, and hay-rides. The Grand Lake golf course is beautiful for playing golf and Grand Lake Lodge is a perfect place for a meal in the summer. We also recommend the Grand Lake Theater, as it is a great little theater and so fun for kids. Granby Ranch ski hill is 15 minutes away and Winter Park/Mary Jane is 40 mins away as well! There is a great tubing hill right next to the cabin as well, so you don't have to go far for a packed day of adventure!

We loved everything about this house.
All the rooms were perfect especially the master loft it was great having out own space. The kids room was fantastic , the set up of all the bunks was perfect. Our most favorite part of the house was all the window and natural light it offered. We had the most beautiful views no matter where you were, it was stunning !

Perfect location, stunning views, we even saw momma moose and baby whilst sitting in the living room!

All home comforts there a really lovely property.

What a perfect spot in the world and a gorgeous home! We loved the open, airy feeling and all the windows overlooking the lake. The house is close to trails and close to town so it’s the best of both worlds. The decorating and thoughtful amenities (crockpot, sharp knifes, extra towels) were much appreciated. I highly recommend this for your vacation home. My only suggestion is more paddles for the canoes (we saw only 1 paddle for each) and one window is fogged. But those things are minor. The fire pit, dock, trees and porch made up for those minor things. We just loved it! It was very clean too! Thank you so much!
Manager response:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay, Cheralyn. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to host you again soon!

The house is right on a cute lake and there was a lot of wildlife on the property, we saw many moose! The rooms are set up nicely and the kid room is great.
Lovely weekend with family in quiet peaceful spot. House was beautiful.

Rented for a bachelorette weekend - even more beautiful than the photos. Very clean, sunny, beautiful view of the lake. Would definitely rent again! There was not propane for the grill though, so plan accordingly if you plan to cook outside.

The house is beautiful and fit our family but it is advertised as lake front. I personally wouldn't call the water lakefront. Definitely more of a pond with shallow water filled with weeds. If swimming with the kids is your plan, this isn't the best choice.
Manager response:
The house is on a designated lake (small, high altitude, mountain lake) that is stocked fish. We agree it is not a great lake for swimming. Thanks!

It was absolutely beautiful. The inside is completely updated. The beds are very comfortable. I can’t say enough about the location. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, this is the place. The only tv is in the bunk room and no one ever turned it on. We were to busy hiking and sitting out on the deck. We even watched a moose swim across the lake. Now that’s something you don’t see everyday.
Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

The home was the perfect size for our family. Plenty of beds for everyone. It was comfortable, inviting and felt like home. It had everything we needed. The house is unassuming at first glance but once inside it is quite lovely. Open kitchen, dining and living areas are perfect for gathering. Master bedroom and bath were beautiful. The bunk room was a hit with our kids and was finished out very nicely. We Loved being on the lake with access to the private dock. Great location. We would definitely return.

Everything we could have imagined. Very peaceful given the time of the year. Plenty of space to accommodate.

We traveled from Austin and Denton, TX to stay at this beautiful house for spring break and loved every single second of it. The house and view were beautiful. The hot water heater is kinda wonky so we had to take turns showering because there were nine total of us but it didn't affect our stay at all. During our time there, we went to the hot springs and Adam's waterfall in Grand Lake. It was a great time and definitely would come back!

Don't expect a modern home. It's old but very nice and cozy.
The bedroom upstairs is excellent as is the bunk beds room. The other two rooms are small but we didn't care as we only slept there and used the huge living room during the day. Kitchen is big but the stove is horrible. Takes 15+ minutes to boil 3-4 quarts of water. Heat is finicky - some rooms are smoldering hot while other areas are very cold. Water heater is good for two showers then it needs time to warm up again. No hair dryer on site but we bought one at a local store. No TVs either but we didn't care. It was nice not having a TV.
Great view of the lake even though ours was frozen solid. Excellent hill on property for sledding. Roads are very well maintained so much so that we didn't need 4x4 vehicles.
Overall it was a great property and we will definitely be going back there.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see there were some disappointments with this stay. The water heater is very new and working well. If guests are taking long showers, back to back, the hot water probably seems to not last very long. The two large TVs are smart TVs and are working well. There is no cable, but there is Netflix streaming. The stove is new and working well, and we have put a hair dryer in the home. The heat is in two locations, one for each half of the house, and both are working as they should. The home has had a lot of recent upgrades and is in a great location in the Rocky Mountain National Park, and we look forward to sharing it with our guests!
