Welcome to the Grand Lakeview Lodge. This spectacular home is brand new in 2021.

Combine the many attractive features of this home with the convenient location, the amazing views, and you have one of the nicest vacation homes in the area. Please note that this home is located within a private, gated community. The exterior is monitored for security and compliance with policies and terms. The property is ideal for mature, respectful, responsible, groups who seek luxury, rest, and relaxation. If this sounds great to you, please read on for detailed information.
The home has 3 levels of living space. This layout is great for privacy and separation, when you want it. At the same time, the home's mountain modern architecture provides rooms and spaces that are large enough for their purpose. The two master suites are upstairs. Each of these suites has a King bed with high quality sheets and bedding sure to provide you with a great night's sleep. Each master suite also features a walk in closet and a private bathroom. The south side master gives you views of Lake Granby, while the north side master looks towards Shadow Mountain Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park. With these bedrooms, you can draw straws and both couples will end up winners. In between the master suites, there is a buffer. A loft style living room overlooks the main living room below, and features a big soft couch for relaxing, reading, or watching TV.
The middle level includes the Great Room, which combines the living room, dining room and kitchen. In the living room portion, you have vaulted ceilings that are over 15 feet high. Two opposing couches and banks of large windows provide views of the lakes, mountains, and forest that surround the home. The wide fireplace combines beautiful stonework with barn-wood and a "true view" gas fireplace that requires no glass, allowing you to feel the warmth of the fire but sparing you the mess, difficulty, or safety issues that go with a wood fire. Don't worry, if you want a wood burning fire, there are two options - more on that in a moment. The kitchen is a chef's delight. The center island includes the sink and 4 big barstools, a great place to serve up appetizers or breakfast. Turn around from the sink and you have a professional range with hood vent and warming lights. The kitchen includes a beautiful stainless steel french door fridge and stacked ovens, which are close to the sink and range, but out of the way for easy access and flow. There's also a coffee and tea nook plus more than enough cabinet and counter space for all of your food. Over by the dining table you have another bank of cabinets, a wine and beverage fridge, and long counter that makes buffet style serving of meals easy. The dining table is oval and seats 8 in comfort, with views that are to die for.
You'll want to step outside to fully immerse yourself in the panoramic views, and it's easy to do so in any season. The main living room has two doors leading to the covered wraparound deck. The homes roofline extends out and above the 3 sided deck, providing you with protection from the occasional rain or snowstorm. This amazing outdoor space includes a wood burning outdoor fireplace for warmth and ambiance. With unobstructed southern views, sunsets over Lake Granby are glorious. Kick back in the Adirondack chairs, and you might linger here long past sunset. Back inside, the main level includes a bit more than the great room. Tucked away past the stairs you'll find a dedicated office. If you must get some work done, good luck. The office has the same fantastic views of Lake Granby as the rest of the home, a not so subtle reminder that you aren't here to work. Finally, there is also a half bathroom for your convenience, and a mud room, for shoes, boots, coats and hats.
On the lower level, you have a very large living area. This lower living room includes a home theater area with a 65 inch HDTV. It also includes an 8 foot pool table, a Gran Board electronic bluetooth enabled dartboard, a secondary kitchen with wet bar and pizza oven, and a lazy-susan rotating poker table. On the Lake Granby side of the home, floor to ceiling glass frames your views across Lake Granby all the way to the Byers Peak Wilderness. Step outside and enjoy the in ground firepit with views that can't be beat. Cook some homemade pizzas and then do s'mores. Play some pool or darts while watching the big game, or just relax and stream the content of your choice. Barn doors separate the lower living room area from the third bedroom and sleeping area. The 3rd bedroom is ideal for singles or kids. It has 4 custom built Twin beds and each has an alcove with a light and outlets for plugging in phones or tablets. Since this lower level is sure to get some use, there's a large bathroom accessible from the main room. Also on this lower level you will find access to the heated garage, a large mud room, and the laundry room.
The Land and Location:
Mountain Shadows Estates is a quiet, private, gated, community with large homesite parcels. That said, you will have neighbors, and we seek respectful guests only. This home's lot is right on the ridgeline between Lake Granby and Shadow Mountain Lake. The building site takes advantage of this, and you'll find that every room offers you sweeping views of the lakes, mountains, the Arapaho National Forest and Rocky Mountain National Park. You can see the Byers Peak Wilderness over by Winter Park, and on a clear day, you can see the Eagle's Nest Wilderness over by Breckenridge and Vail. It's no wonder we call it the Grand Lakeview Lodge.
Arrival, Access, and Parking:
Once you've booked with us, we are here for you. We have a dedicated Guest Services line for guests who have booked or are in-house, so that we can help you have a fantastic vacation.

The home has plenty of parking. There are spots for 2 vehicles in the heated garage. You could park up to 4 or more vehicles outside without any issue. There is parking for trailers as well, depending upon the overall length.
