Overview

About the property

Huge 2/1--1500sq.' Cabin Sleeps 6, New Remodel, on river as it enters Lake

Luxury remodel-- all top flight quality-- of 2 bedroom cabin on Colo. river where it meets the wetlands and Shadow Mtn. Lake. Travertine bath, all new, w/ seamless glass shower, new carpet in the bedrooms, and hardwood flooring, fine Persian and indian floor rugs to cover some of the hardwood, new appliances, W/D,dishwasher, new cabinets and paint, Egyptian linens, fully equipped. And then there's the View-lots of wildlife, nearly daily, like Moose, Elk, deer, Osprey, etc. etc. Many times--right out your door in the meadow or crossing the river. This old cabin is rustic on the outside and is NEWLY renovated on the inside. We sit on a 6 acre meadow just off Hwy 34--bordered by the No. Fork of the Colo. river--2 miles outside downtown G.L. The river runs so close to your cabin we have to have a small berm by the back deck to keep from flooding in the June run-off season! Shadow Mtn lake connects with Grand lake (the largest alpine lake in the State) by a small channel. Rocky Mtn National park is just 3 miles or so away. Great for fishing, kayaking, bird or wildlife viewing, hiking, boating, etc. Natural stone fireplace w/ wood included. We aslo have 3 canoes, a kayak, and a paddle boat, that we include for our guests. All firewood for your natural rock--floor-to-ceiling fireplace, and the fire pits is also included in your rate.

About Owner/Property Manager Tracee Lorens

I am the Great grand daughter of Gus and Anna Spitzmiller, original Pioneers to Grand Lake. Gus was a plumber and his son Gordon married my Grandma Barbara. My dad, Chris Lorens, left the property to me when he died in 2008, and I have been making it 'top flight' since. I am a proud Colorado Mountain Woman, who now resides in San Diego, but spends lots of time where my roots are, i.e. Grand Lake.

Owner/Property Manager Tracee Lorens purchased this cabin in 1910

Why Owner/Property Manager Tracee Lorens chose Rocky Mountain National Park

It is full of soul and history and it is sooo beautiful!!!

Sits on colo river where it enters Shadow mtn. lake. I bet the Ntl Forest and Park Service--who own all the bordering land--wish they had taken this side of the river too, when they confiscated the Park land up here in the early 1900's.

What makes this cabin unique

Fully remodeled and luxury--through and through.

There really is not a property that compares in the Grand Lake region. Because you are on a 6 ac. meadow bordered by the river and lake--and have all protected land across from you--there really isn't a location in the entire County that compares with this one! The view alone is irreplaceable.

Colorado Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our family went for our annual trip up to Grand Lake and decided to stay at a new place this year and this cabin was the best for the entire family including our dogs! I kayaked 2-3 times per day and so fun to drop in on Colorado River and drift into Shadow Mountain Lake. Our kids and dogs loved running free! Loved the space, back patio was the best, having the kitchen was great! Greatest moment was seeing 2 male moose 10 feet away from us 30 minutes after I had been swimming in the same spot!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Tracee was a most gracious host. Her communication was prompt and curteous from the beginning. Her home is lovely. We felt welcome the moment we walked in - the cleanliness, the warm sun coming in the windows and the sound of the river. Everything so tastefully done. Thanks for sharing this place with our family... we needed more time!

Very nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully refurbished cabin with comfortable beds. Right next to the north fork of the Colorado river, with lots of places to sit and enjoy the views. Easy to get to and a close drive to town.

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location!!!....Beautiful cabin located on banks of North Fork river with very easy access to Shadow Mountain Lake. Close to Grand Lake entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, horse back riding, mountain biking, hot springs, zip lines and numerous hiking trails all close by. The price is reasonable and includes unlimited firewood and free canoes and kayaks...you just can't beat it! Would rent again in a heart beat!

It was everything we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet cabin on the Colorado River with all the necessary amenities. On a sunny day we hiked to and beyond Adams Falls and saw a moose grazing in a meadow. We drove as far as we could along the Trail Ridge Road towards Estes Park and got some incredible shots of wildlife including deer and moose until a road closure turned us around. We made good use of the fireplace when a beautiful snow fell mid-week and lasted until our final day. Then on our final day as we were leaving our cabin another moose greeted us; she was sitting in the snow behind our cabin. Amazing week. Can't wait to return. Thanks for a wonderful cabin experience, Tracee!

Car: recommended

The property faces the Colo river where it meets the wetlands and Shadow Mtn. Lake. You look to open Forest Service land and then gorgeous, snow-covered peaks along the continental divide. Kayak or canoe ( equipment included on us) with the Osprey, or use our paddle boat or reading dock, with zero gravity reclining chairs, located right where the river enters the lake, with the best view in Grand County.

The town borders Rocky Mtn. National Park and is located on the highest natural glacier- formed lake in Colo, and has the highest yacht club in the world.
