Original contemporary art and antiques fill the home. Quality linens and soft goods are provided throughout.

About Tom Wunder

The Wunder family lives in Boulder, CO. We are a husband, wife and a teen girl. We enjoy traveling, snow sports, contemporary art, fine wines and gourmet meals. We moved from Santa Fe to Boulder to take advantage of the outdoor sports and athletic mindset that prevails in Colorado and Boulder especially.

Tom Wunder purchased this lodge in 2009

Why Tom Wunder chose Granby

Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP), wildlife, fishing, hiking, canoeing, skiing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, horse back riding, golfing, snow shoeing, lakes, and sledding are a few of the reasons we chose to build in Grand County. There is aggressive hiking for the adventurous, beautiful less strenuous hikes along the Colorado River, and, at dusk, some of the best animal watching on the planet. Grand Lake is an unpretentious western town with the deepest lake in Colorado. We would say Grand County is a true reflection of what Colorado is all about!

What makes this lodge unique

The views transport you and it is easy to spend hours on the porch or looking out the windows watching the colors, the sky, and the animals come and go. This lodge realizes all the images we hold of what a 'lodge' is: the hearth, the warmth, the beauty, the serenity, the comfort, the quiet, nature finding her way into the home. The windows are abundant allowing guests to enjoy all the views.

Cooking at the lodge is a communal experience with the kitchen producing meals that everyone proudly takes ownership of--crepes are a lodge favorite. On the wraparound covered porch is a large grill and a picnic table for 14-16 people. There are plenty of rockers on the porch for everyone to sit outside--chipmunks and humming birds are regular visitors.

If puzzles and games strike your fancy, there are dozens from which to choose. If you are a film buff, we have a serious collection of DVD's you can enjoy on our large screen. A beautiful llama and alpaca farm can be visited across the road.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

You do the research, you pick a place, and you hope it turns out to be half as nice as it looks. Well this place was everything we had hoped it would be and then some. Any apprehension we may have had when booking the home quickly faded when dealing with the homeowners, Tom and Melinda Wunder.

We found them to be friendly, honest, and generous with their time and knowledge of the area. They enthusiastically answered every question we had and did exactly what they said they would do when they said they would do it. It was as though we were dealing with old friends from the very first contact to the moment we walked into the home to find a most warm and gracious welcome note on the countertop. Although three pages in length and full of any and all of the information we may have needed to manage the property, the essence of the note was “welcome home, what’s ours is yours, please enjoy.” And enjoy we did.

And the home, the Wunder Cabin, couldn’t have been more perfect. A beautifully appointed home, exquisitely finished and unbelievably comfortable. Quiet, secluded yet quite accessible, and with views from the home and wrap around deck that are nothing short of breathtaking. Perfect.

There were ten of us. Five couples from across the Midwest and Southwest, gathering as we do nearly every year to celebrate our friendships that go back to our college days circa 1967-73. We enjoyed food, wine, laughter, golf, hiking, shopping…and all from the comfort of our beautiful home, courtesy of the Wunders. We can’t thank you enough. It was all too PERFECT!

Truly A Luxury Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wunderview was everything that I had expected and more!

I had the pleasure of coordinating a trip with Tom, the owner of Wunderview. He is an incredibly kind, accommodating and good-humored host.

The location of Wunderview provides stunning views of mountain ranges and Lake Granby. The wraparound deck was the perfect spot to take in all of the vistas, with morning coffee in hand while occupying one of the many rocking chairs located on the deck.

The accommodations were that of a four star hotel. Expect to find quality bedding, mattresses, towels. And the kitchen?! Wow, it's a gourmet kitchen with top-notch appliances.

It is immediately obvious that this place is lovingly cared for. You will not be disappointed with Wunderview.

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Wunderview for a mix of work meeting and spiritual retreat. Our team included people from different countries.

The house is beautiful and it had everything that we expected. It's a beautiful combination of elegant and rustic design. The view is really awesome! Very peaceful and pretty environment.

There were 12 of us, adults and not sharing beds. The house has 10 beds. One slept in a comfortable couch and the other one in a futon that was available upon request. We were very comfortable.

Kitchen is very well equipped with everything you might need. Bathrooms, towels, linens, everything super clean and in abundance.

The living room is large and it provided all the space we needed for work and leisure.

Tom, the owner, was very organized, answered questions quickly and was very helpful in trying to accommodate the house to our needs.

Nice house...terrible treatment

  • 1 of 5

A group of friends meet to take our kids skiing and we have a great time. The house is great and had a friendly greeting. Enjoyed ourselves. 2 weeks after the trip we get accused of stealing property and owner won't return emails. Poor treatment from owner! Won't stay here again!

Owner's Response: At Wunderview we strive to make our guests comfortable and happy to be home. It can happen, however, that not everyone will be happy. Personally, when a guest is unhappy it is a source of sadness. At the same time we do our utmost to make Wunderview ideal, we also believe in accountability. The last thing we want to do is charge a guest's security deposit so we bend over backwards to be understanding and accommodating.

Winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Seven friends stayed in this beautiful house for our winter getaway. The ice fishing was great—70+ lake trout caught! Snowmobiling Grand Lake was amazing. Thanks Tom and Melinda—we loved every minute of our stay!!
