Wunderview is a spectacular Appalachian style log home nestled between the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park and Winter Park Ski Resort.

Its long wrap-around porch allows for excellent wildlife viewing in all seasons. You will enjoy a five-star kitchen with granite countertops, Viking cooktop and oven, GE Monogram refrigerator, other Bosch appliances while cooking for a small party or a large family.

Our hand-made dining room table seats 10 people. It is generously positioned to view Lake Granby and the Continental Divide. From every window in the house you will enjoy a wonderful view. Original contemporary art and antiques fill the home. Quality linens and soft goods are provided throughout. Two fireplaces and a large fire pit outside help you stay cozy as well as the in-floor radiant heat and sauna.

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 out 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!

Wunderview is the Best!

  • 5 out of 5
We've stayed at quite a few places up in RMNP. That is until we found Wunderview..

Last year some friends and I rented Wunderview, and it is 100 times better than anywhere we've ever seen . Anywhere! Wunderview really does have something for everyone!

A photographer friend of mine was with us, and praised it for its views of Lake Granby, Grand Lake, the Continental Divide, and the diversity of wildlife there. She loved that it was conveniently located near Trail Ridge Road where she took candid shots of herds of elk and deer, and other animals in Sept of last year.

Our boating aficionado took us boating on Lake Granby this year, and it was a splash! And had so much fun! There are so many fun places to eat and shop as well. And there are so many places to hike for all different levels of fitness. And maybe you will see one of the many elusive Moose like we did last year on a hike in Adam's Falls...

But staying in the cabin is fun as well! The place itself it exquisite. It's a three story home away from home with a wrap around balcony porch, that has all the charm of a rustic cabin, coupled with the fine, upscale modern conveniences of a home. (A chef who went with us this year drooled over the chef's kitchen, commercial grade appliances, and pantry stocked with goods. He couldn't believe he found the Molasses he needed for a breakfast dish)!

Everything you are looking for is there: There are canoes, bicycles, walking sticks...everything to take in the scenery. And its so homey...the linens and the pillows are top notch. The beds themselves are divine and so comfortable. (If you can make it in them anytime soon)... We held a few intimate dinner parties, (It helps to have a chef in the bunch), in which a Bose stereo was made available to us, with 1000's of downloaded songs and playlists.We also stayed up and roasted marshmallows and smores in the outside fire-pit.(And yes they provided all the wood)! I haven't done that in so long. We laughed and even told a few host stories of old. We lounged at the many fireplaces in the home with Very comfy seating, We also played some of the numerous games available to us.

In short, we went sightseeing, got back to nature, and got closer, all in a little piece of heaven where we could hear ourselves think, and remember we are human beings (not simply human doings)...

Thank you so much Tom and Melinda for welcoming us home again this year! We love it there!

Comfortable Luxury

  • 5 out of 5
Wunderview is a beautiful home and our extended family truly enjoyed it during our recent stay. Tom sent us a very thorough and helpful list of things to do, including phone numbers, people's names, etc. That definitely helped us do as much, or as little, as we wanted. Some of us went to the alpaca farm across the road and the neighbors there could not have been nicer! We drove into the Rocky Mountain National Park and saw elk, deer, and a moose (RMNP is less than 15 minutes away). We enjoyed Shrek at the Rocky Mountain Rep Theater, went white water rafting at Mad River Adventures, and horseback riding at the Rusty Spurr Ranch - both in Kremmling. The views from Wunderview's gorgeous deck were incredible! Finally, we really appreciated Tom and Melinda's theory of hospitality - if it's there, feel free to use it. The extra jackets and coats in the laundry room came in handy once or twice! Overall, we had a great week.

A Wunderful time at Wunderview

  • 5 out of 5
Our large family of 17 stayed at Wunderview and had a "wunderful" time. When looking for the perfect vacation getaway, it was important for all of us to be able to stay together in the same home. This home was so versatile and provided that for us. It allowed each family unit to have their own space and bathroom facilities. And the kitchen was to die for. Tom and Melinda made the stay one we will never forget. They were very accommodating from bringing us extra supplies during our stay to mailing us things we forgot after our return home. The kids had a great time climbing the hills around the house, riding the bikes provided with the home but mostly playing with the chipmunks! Those critters provided hours of entertainment! I would highly recommend Wunderview if you are considering the Winter Park/Granby/Grand Lake/Rocky Mountain National Park area.

We met other family members here for family vacation retreat and we were not disappointed! The whole experience, including reservation paperwork and details provided by a very professional, efficient and experienced host, was awesome! This area offers tons of activities for all ages, interests and abilities. The property was easy to find, centrally located and as shown in the pictures. The house was very well stocked with the essentials and provided clean, comfortable accommodations that were of the quality of provisions you might expect in a property of this class. The owner's local staff member met us upon arrival to show us around and answered all our questions. Any questions that came up during our stay were addressed promptly. The views overlooking Lake Granby with Continental Divide in the background were beyond exceptional! Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park and the quaint town of Grand Lake (restaurants, shops, boat rentals, live entertainment) are a short drive away. The town of Granby has a large newer grocery store and hospital, which we found comforting since we had a small child with us. Three contiguous lakes and surrounding mountains provided endless opportunities for glimpses of wildlife and reconnection with nature. Whether your ideal vacation is to play hard or to retreat and relax, this will fit your needs. This is a vacation rental experience that we hope to revisit again soon!

We will be back!

  • 5 out of 5
Dear Tom and Melinda -

Our first impression of the house was how well situated it was to provide the most incredible views (both at day and night - the most amazing thunderstorm I've ever seen!). Upon entering the house, our spirits soared to the height of the ceilings, and our first thought was that there was no way the website pictures could have fully captured the feeling of being in the house. The house truly brought out the best of us all week. We enjoyed the art throughout the house, used the sauna several times, grilled fish we caught ourselves, dined on the porch, and the kids screamed as loud as they could roasting marshmallows over the fire pit - which was fine because there were no neighbors close enough to hear! The master suites were very comfortable, sophisticatedly decorated yet cozy, and the mornings could not have gotten off to a better start with light streaming through the room and luring us to the wrap-around balcony with the incredible views.

Thank you for being so friendly and available to answer questions. We were delighted to meet you in person. Above all, thank you for trusting us with your wonderful home. You obviously dedicated a tremendous amount of thought into the design, hospitality, and amenities.

We intend to return in 2015!
