Contempo Cabin 1 Block from Historic Town Center

City: Grand Lake, Colorado Property ID: 376912

grand total: From $290 total Per Night

    A young dreamer named Sandy traded the shores of the Pacific for the lakes of the alpine, calling this vacation rental cabin her home only 2 blocks from Grand Lake Marina. Fittingly named ‘Sandy’s Ski Haus,’ this newly constructed 3-bed, 2-bath cabin invites 7 to live out their own alpine aspirations. Ski the slopes of Granby Ranch or Winter Park, sunbathe on the shores of Grand Lake and explore this charming mountain town from your newly built cabin - soon to become your home-away-from-home!

    -- THE PROPERTY --

    Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Twin-over-Full Bunk Bed

    Staying true to her West Coast roots, ‘Sandy’s Ski Haus’ features contemporary furnishings with bold pops of color and beautiful blue hues reminiscent of the ocean. Decompress on the large sectional sofa set in front of the 60-inch flat-screen TV in the living area, or lounge like a local as you host your après-ski activities out on the southern-sun exposed deck.

    Fire up the gas grill for an at-home barbecue or spare your chef elect and walk over to town for a fresh barbecue feast at Sagebrush BBQ & Grill.

    If you’re still craving a home-cooked classic, the fully equipped kitchen is ready to assist in family favorites and complex cuisines alike. The space boasts sleek surfaces, stainless steel appliances and trendy light fixtures to make cooking a real treat.

    Wine and dine with your loved ones in the eating nook surrounded by large windows overlooking Grand Lake’s striking mountain scenery. Before settling down on the built-in bench, flip the switch for the gas fireplace for an authentic cabin dining experience.

    Make yourself comfortable in the master bedroom, housing a king bed, full en-suite bathroom and urban-themed decor, while the little ones settle into their own space in the third bedroom featuring a twin-over-full bunk bed, bean bag chair and bright color palette.

    -- THE LOCATION --

    ‘Sandy’s Ski Haus’ is ideally situated in the heart of Grand Lake within walking distance from the shores and town. Visit Grand Lake Marina for watercraft rentals and spend an afternoon exploring Colorado’s largest natural lake. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, stroll into town to dine at a local favorite like Daven Haven Lodge or The Historic Rapids Lodge & Restaurant.

    The Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre is a must-see during your tour of the town. Head over for a world-class show in an awe-inspiring mountain setting!

    Outdoor adventure abounds in Grand Lake as its deemed the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. Take a scenic drive along Trail Ridge Road or lace up your hiking boots to trek up to one of the alpine lakes.

    Arts and crafts festivals, ATVing, horseback riding, biking, fishing and golfing are just a few of the other summertime activities enjoyed in the area. Drive 5 minutes to hit the links at the lush Grand Lake Golf Course. Friday and Saturday evenings in the summer mean one thing: bingo! Head down to the town square and try your luck with the rest of the locals.

    Once the snow begins to fall, the “Snowmobile Capital of Colorado” comes to life with snow-packed terrain and endless opportunities for snowshoeing, sledding and, of course, snowmobiling!

    Be sure to pack your skis and snowboards as the award-winning terrain of Winter Park is less than an hour away, while the family-friendly slopes of Granby Ranch are just 20 miles out! Even more winter activities await 5 minutes away at the Grand Lake Nordic Center. Spend the day cross-country skiing or riding down the slopes in a snow tube!

    Manager's Response:
    We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at this beautiful cabin! While we don't advertise this home as a waterfront property, it is only a three-minute walk to the lake. However, we appreciate your feedback and will be looking into changing our tag-line. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and we hope to host you again soon! Best, the Evolve Team

    Sandy's Ski Haus lives up to its bright cheery pictures. The space is beautifully decorated, modern but cozy, and couldn't be in a better location!! We walked each morning to breakfast at Fat Cat Cafe, drove just a few miles to snow shoe at East Inlet, and then just walked to rent snow mobiles a block away!! It was all fantastic. The kitchen was very well stocked, perfect for a foodie like me. The entry / mud room was perfect for all our snowy gear. They had soooooooo many games to play too. They thought of everything! We highly recommend it and can't wait to stay there again!

    We loved the modern decor of this cabin. It was also very clean and comfortable--we all slept great! The location is hard to beat; we could easily walk down to the water, to main street and even to the grocery store a few blocks down. My only regret is that we didn't plan for a longer stay!

    New build with all the modern amenities you need for an enjoyable vacation. We stayed in Sandy?s Ski Haus and by far the nicest cabin we have rented in the Colorado mountains. Loved the layout and openness of the space and the location is perfect. 3 minute walk with my 3 year old daughter to coffee and ice cream shops. Grocery store, swim beach, and restaurants are all within 5-10 minute walking distance. This is definitely the cabin we will rent in the future. Every Evolve Vacation Rentals property we have stayed at has been top notch.

    What a great property! So unexpected to find something new and modern in Grand Lake- right near the main drag and the water! The guys went golfing and the girls went horseback-riding. We grilled steaks one night and saw a bear walking across the street. It was a wonderful stay :)

    Such a fun time was had by all over Easter weekend. Sandy's ski Haus was perfect for the group we had up in grand lake. 7 people and 7 beds everyone was comfortable and kitchen and laundry facilities were perfect. Modern bright cabin on a great block just a stone throw from the main st and lake. We will definitely be back in the summer to check out some water sports and maybe try another one of the cabins.

    Easter 2018 weekend with my parents.

    Reviewed by: Kiwi Stephen on


    Such a good time was had by all and we filled all 7 beds in the cabin and everyone was more than comfortable. We arrived on good Friday and walked down to the Main St for dinner that night. Saturday the kids participate in the easter egg hunt in town and we cooked a pascal lamb in the very well equipped kitchen that afternoon. My parents were in from New Zealand and my father was very happy to discover that we had Wifi for him to check his emails. At night the adults watched a movie on Netflix on the flat screen TV. The perfect cabin really lived up to its name in every way and the modern architecture appeals to all. We definitely used all the facilities BBQing some of our meals on the new weber grill out front and doing loads of laundry so that the kids had dry socks in the morning. We all loved the convenient location for walking into town and round the lake as well as being super close to the trailhead to Adam's Fall's and the short drive to the hot springs at Sulphur Springs. Thanks so much for an amazing weekend and we can't wait to come back in summer for some water sports and to check out another one of the cabin models.
