About tracee

I am the great granddaughter of Gus and Anna Spitzmiller who settled here in the late 1800's. Gus came to this area to mine Silver at Lulu City with others like the famous Squeeky Bob Wheeler. He eventually settled down and brought his wife Anna to Grand Lake and became the first Master Plumber in Grand County. Anna had the first indoor running water in the County. My grandmother, Barbara Lorens married Gordon Spitzmiller (Gus's son) and they joined their plumbing business with grandma's dairy farm--on what is now Shadow Mtn. Lake. Eventually Shadow Mtn Reservoir was made, and so, we have property all along the river to the lake.

tracee purchased this cabin in 1940

Why tracee chose Rocky Mountain National Park

This is one of 3 cabins, plus a family home, I own in Grand Lake. This is the 1 bedroom, and is the smallest of the units, but still about 900 sq feet. All my cabins are BIG. It has been fully renovated on the inside, and many find it so cozy and romantic that they call it the 'Love Shack'. We also have a 2/1 vrbo # 454309, and a 3/1 Homeaway # 3564480. Or if you have a big group and want to splurge, you can rent our family home, vrbo # 490482.

What makes this cabin unique

Very private and gorgeous property with easy access on and off the main road and only 2 miles to the village of Grand lake. You can canoe in the wildlife area from our meadow ( as the whole property is surrounded on 3-sides by the Colo. river) in the Summer or snowmobile right across the lake to town and the trails in the Winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I were on a cross-country road trip,and we decided to spend a couple of nights in Grand Lake. The cabin was decorated nicely.The bathroom was clean and recently renovated. The fireplace and wall heaters kept the cabin very warm,even though it was cold outside. There was plenty of firewood. The property is amazing! The cabin is located very close to town and the entrance to the National Park. I would recommend this cabin, or any other on the property,to my friends and family, over and over again. Tracee, the owner, was incredible. She treated us like family and was very accomodating. I cannot imagine a better place to stay in Grand Lake.

I will most certainly be back. I will spread the word to all my colleagues and friends traveling from Florida.

Cozy cabin with great views and accessibility

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time would recommend for anyone who wants a quiet mountain getaway without leaving the comforts of home. Everything was clean and well decorated and the shower was better than mine at home. Loved every minute we stayed and the on site manager was so friendly and helpful it really made finding things and getting around easy. Saw tons of wildlife just from the property and the many lawn chairs and tables set up amongst the cabins made it hard to find a reason to leave. Defiantly coming back as soon as possible and anyone who wants to stay in grand lake or visit the parks within minutes of this cabin should look no further and book immediately!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a dog with us and the property was great because he could run some and it is a close

walk to the water. The beds were comfortable and the cabin was neat and clean. The only complaint is that there were not enough towels!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry about the towels. We have extras in the wood chest by the master bed. I'll add that to the instruction sheet --for all guests. Again, thanks for visiting. Tracee/owner

Lovely cabin

Very comfortable cabin. We had everything we needed and Grand Lake has charm and lovely scenery. Slightly quieter on the west side of the park and wonderful hiking.

Doesn't look like much from the outside but very well and thoughtfully appointed inside.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Convenient to RMNP and other local attractions without being in the crazy tourist setting of Grand Lake. The cabin is very comfortable and snug. It is well appointed inside with many thoughtful touches. We would definitely stay here again if we return to this area in the future.
