Cabin Holiday Rental
This comfortable, historic cabin on Columbine Lake is located approximately two hours from Denver. Columbine Lake is a natural glacial lake between the town of Grand Lake and the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). The cabin was originally constructed as a fishing cabin in the late 1800’s and expanded to create a two bedroom, one bath getaway. It features an original stone fireplace in the living room and master bedroom of chinked log construction. The cabin sleeps four comfortably with room for six using a pullout couch. Bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the cabin allowing for privacy. One bedroom has a queen bed while the other has a full size bed. The pullout couch has a queen size Memory foam mattress that is reputed to be quite comfortable-no bar in your back...This comfortable, historic cabin on Columbine Lake is located approximately two hours from Denver. Columbine Lake is a natural glacial lake between the town of Grand Lake and the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). The cabin was originally constructed as a fishing cabin in the late 1800’s and expanded to create a two bedroom, one bath getaway. It features an original stone fireplace in the living room and master bedroom of chinked log construction. The cabin sleeps four comfortably with room for six using a pullout couch. Bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the cabin allowing for privacy. One bedroom has a queen bed while the other has a full size bed. The pullout couch has a queen size Memory foam mattress that is reputed to be quite comfortable-no bar in your back at all. The remodeled bathroom is clean and comfortable and has a shower. The updated, fully stocked kitchen provides seating for four-six people along with a gas grill on the deck- excellent for star gazing chefs. Internet access and Apple TV are available and allow you to stay in touch with family and friends and watch a variety of shows and movies. The cabin is small (700 sq. ft.) but is laid out well and allows for privacy as well as group gatherings. Fisherman's Retreat is located across the road from Columbine Lake with a view to the lake and a one mile road around the lake for the walkers in your group. Guests are not allowed to use the lake for boating or fishing but it is certainly available for your enjoyment. Boats can be rented in Grand Lake and the surrounding area and fishing lakes and streams abound. In addition to the proximity to RMNP, National Forest land surrounds the area and Grand Lake, Lake Granby and Shadow Mountain Reservoir provide a unique outdoor playground. We are located about 40 minutes from Winter Park Ski Area, 15 minutes from Granby and Granby Ranch skiing. There is a Nordic Center just south of Columbine Lake on the golf course as well as cross country skiing about 25 minutes away at YMCA of the Rockies. Of course, there is plenty of skiing and snowshoeing in Rocky Mountain National Park and the surrounding US Forest Service land. Moose, fox, deer, otter and elk are seen on the property or close by. The bird population is diverse and, in summer, ospreys fly over the lake almost daily. Shopping, restaurants, and community events in Grand Lake and nearby towns enrich the wilderness experience to create a vacation perfect for people of all ages. Various community events round out the calendar. This beautiful, peaceful part of Colorado is a place that you will think back on throughout the year.More

Cabin was very nice. Very close to the lake and a put-in at the lake. The cabin is very close to Grand Lake and is just minutes from downtown Grand Lake. Columbine Lake is a very good mountain lake with good roads for walking &...More

How to get there
TRAIL RIDGE ROAD through ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK is CLOSED in the winter! The road may open by Memorial Day weekend, however, be sure and check. If you go through Estes Park and Trail Ridge is closed, it will take at least an additional hour to get to the cabin. The address is 1384 Columbine Dr., Grand Lake, CO 80447. It is easy to find using a GPS. The basic directions are: I70 to Hwy 40. Hwy 40 is twelve miles west of Idaho Springs. Head to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) and Winter Park. At Granby, turn north or right toward Grand Lake and RMNP. Go past the Grand Lake turnoff and continue about 1/2 mile. Turn at the second left which is County Road 49. Take the first left (about 1/2 mile) and drop into the Columbine Lake neighb
