Photos and Description of the Grand Lake vacation cabin rental

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 10 plus 2 more on sofa sleeper

The Whispering Pines Lodge is a custom, hand-hew, log home and is a perfect year around getaway providing many recreational opportunities including hiking, snowshoeing, fishing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling to name a few. Our cabin is nestled in the mountains at 8,700 feet between Rocky Mountain National Park and Arapaho National Park. The cabin is located by Sun Valley Lake (a private 22 acre non motorized lake), just a few miles North of Grand Lake, Colorado.

Our cabin has all the comforts of home including fully equipped kitchen with dish washer, refrigerator, oven, stove, microwave, a Keurig coffee maker, toaster, and many more conveniences. The dining area has a large dining table that will seat 10 and an island counter with 4 chairs . Enjoy a good night sleep on our quality, pillow-top type mattresses. The cabin features 2 upstairs bedrooms (one with queen bed & bunk beds and one with a king bed.) The main floor bedroom has a queen bed with bunk beds. Both upstairs bedrooms have access to a balcony overlooking a valley where Elk like to roam. The living room also has a recliner, a sofa sleeper with up-graded mattress which sleeps 2. There is a laundry area with a washer and dryer. No smoking and Pets are not allowed.

Those who enjoy the outdoors will truly appreciate our Whispering Pines Lodge. Watch Elk graze in the front meadow off our decks or occasionally see Mule deer. If you are lucky you may even see a Moose wander by the cabin or down by the lake. You can also drive in to RMNP and observe mule deer, big horn sheep, moose as well as elk. Hikers, motorcyclists, and ATV riders have access to many miles of trails in Arapaho National Forest and RMNP is for hikers only. For winter fun, enjoy 130 miles of groomed snowmobile trails just yards from our cabin.

Anglers have access to our private annually stocked, trout lake behind our cabin (no license required.) If river fishing is more your style the Colorado River is only 300 yards away. Our neighbors provide a horseback riding service where you can ride into RMNP. Other activities within a few minutes of the lodge include golfing, white water rafting, snow-skiing (Winter Park and Granby Ranch), snowmobiling and cross-country skiing, and hunting.
