Stayed at Alder Cabin for a few days post 4th of July - there were 4 of us and we did miss not having a table to eat meals at. There are two small tables, and we made it work, but it was "cozy." The cabin was generally clean and pleasant. One note to owners: the hummingbirds only come to the feeder on the far left of the porch - they come up to the others but fly away without partaking - we missed SO MANY hummingbirds. I'll be back!

Manager's Response

Thanks for the input on the Hummers. So glad you had a good visit.

The Alder cabin was great for our small family as the kids were able to share the bedroom with twin beds. The patio was very relaxing in a serene forest that's rather quiet. Everything functioned well and was in working order, however the house was not stocked well from a basic spice or condiment standpoint so come prepared.

The bathtub doesn't fill well.

Grand Mountain Rentals was great to deal with.

I rented this cabin the second week of June to stay in by myself for a rest and restoration break from city life. The cabin is easily within walking distance to town, but it was so quiet! There were other cabins close by, but I rarely heard anyone. I enjoyed the peacefulness and the sound of the river close by. I spent a lot of time in the screened in porch reading and watching the many hummingbirds!
The cabin itself is what I expected. The pictures give a fair portrayal of the property. It was clean and there is plenty of room for a small family. The kitchen is well equipped and met my needs.
I think it would be important to know that the only way into the bathroom is through one of the bedrooms. It wasn't an issue since I was alone, but it could be awkward depending on who you are traveling with.
I would have liked the front door to have had a dead bolt, but Grand Lake seems like a very safe area, so this wasn't a big deal. There was also a window lock that was missing, but I think that the owners are going to have that replaced.
I enjoyed my time there, and I hope to return next summer!

Manager's Response

Hope you felt rested and restored. Happy you had a good visit, we hope to see you next summer.

The cabin was perfect for just the two of us. I will say the master bed looked pretty uncomfortable so we opted to sleep in twin beds in the other room. It was a little close quarters in there but for being just two of us it was fine. We were able to cook what we wanted and relax and watch the news if we felt. The area was very quiet and beautiful. I would go back. Close to the main street town to walk.

My husband and I were looking for a weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary. We also wanted to bring our dog but we knew that options would be limited and we would most likely pay a premium. Then I found the Alder Cabin! The price was incredibly reasonable
and the cabin was perfect. It was just enough space, had the necessary kitchen utensils and gave us the relaxing, weekend on the lake that we were looking for. It was also a short walk to town which was great because this was our first time visiting Grand
Lake. We would definitely stay here again. The Grand Mountain Rental Company was also great to work with. I accidentally left some items behind and they were kind enough to mail them to me the next day. Great experience overall.

So glad you were able to enjoy your anniversary. Congratulations!

The location is perfect. I think you can walk to town from any rental cabin, but this location allows you to do it on cement versus gravel. We found paths down to the Colorado river with the kids for throwing rocks. It's just around the corner a bit from a great trail to the falls and a boat launch.

The bathroom through the second bedroom is a bit awkward, but there are two doors. By slipping through the kitchen side, we didn't wake the kids.

We brought our dog. Grand Lake has the best trails ever for dog walks out by the golf course. Miles of fun and if you get out there early before a lot of people, it's ok to let them off the leash.

Sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee, you can hear the river and watch both the locals and tourists, but it has a huge amount of privacy. I never felt crammed into a neighborhood.

The beds were extremely comfortable. Everything was new and up-to-date and working. The kitchen had everything I needed and then some.

This is on the repeat list for us!

Grand Lake, the lake, is just gorgeous, and there is a sister lake right next to it. You can rent a boat and tour the lakes, or hike. Grand Lake the town is a wonderful town with lots to do and the prices were not crazy. They had all kinds of impromptu activities to keep it lively like a town water-fight and a little bluegrass band. The weather was delightfully cool, starting most days sunny and ending with a little shower. We appreciated that we were able to bring our cat, which is unusual, I guess. (He was recovering from an injury.) The management company was very helpful and informative and clearly really nice people. The cabin itself was fine. A little dark for my taste but had everything that is needed. Perhaps a bit small. Having a screened porch was very pleasant. There was really no view, but it was very close to views and the fun town and waterfront. At the bottom of the hill was a little bridge over a very picturesque creek called North Inlet. About a mile away is a good place to hike to see a crystal clear little river with beautiful waterfalls. I actually drank from it (although not recommended but luckily I am not the worse for wear.) There were lots of hummingbirds but we didn't see a lot of wildlife, probably due to the lack of live trees (thousands dead from mountain pine beetles.) Really nice parks to hike in. Grand Lake Lodge restaurant has a terrific view and food. All in all it was a lovely visit and we were thrilled that we were in Grand Lake and not Estes Park.

This is the second stay for us in the Alder cabin. The cabin is old and funky, but that is what I like - it has so much charm and atmosphere. The location can't be beat. It is a 5 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of the beach and the main street, but you feel like you are in a quiet and serene setting when you are in the cabin.

This cabin is conveniently located close to the town and was quiet for us. It is old-school, which means that it's old, but it's not a knock on the cabin. Everything worked. The bathroom is connected to a bedroom, so you need to be able to hold it during the night or risk waking whoever is sleeping in the room with the twin beds. The people next door did a lot of outside work on their cottage, so you have to make sure the bathroom shades are drawn closed! The WiFi and cable worked great. I would note that this cabin is not located on the North Inlet river. It is slightly misleading because it's on "North Inlet" road and the cottages are called "Riverside cottages."

Lovely little cabin in Grand Lake. Great home base for exploring the area. We enjoyed watching all of the hummingbirds. The options for hiking, and proximity to RMNP make this a wonderful location! The bathroom is off the second bedroom, and since we had our kids in the second bedroom this was not a problem.

We had a great time and the cabin was perfect for our trip! My boyfriend and I were pleasantly surprised with the condition of the cabin. Having never rented a house/cabin before, we were a bit hesitant on what to expect. Cabin was very clean, great location, and quiet. Although you have neighbors on each side, the location still felt very secluded and everyone is very helpful and friendly. You can easily walk to town, or nearby nature trails. Kitchen had everything we needed, wifi and tv worked great. If we return to Grand Lake, we would be happy to stay at this cabin again.

This cabin s simple, basic and comfortable enough if you are not picky. There are no extras thrown in, like kitchen spices, convenience toiletries, so bring your own everything. It is quiet and comfortable though. The best partis its location right outside the "back door" to RMNP. It really is a maze to gettote bathroom at night! Also, a nightlight in the bathroom would be VERY HELPFUL!

This was a convenient and quiet place for two of us and our dog. Easy walking distance to town.
Overall amenities were as described. Kitchen layout was a little cramped with a small table at which to eat. One could eat at table on porch if it was warm. Utensils seemed to be pieced together from odd groups. Tile around fireplace was chipped badly and detracted from appearance.
Bed in master bedroom was very comfortable. Getting to bathroom especially if there were multiple guests might be challenging as one has to go through the second bedroom to access the bathroom.

This was our first time to Grand Lake. It's a beautiful area! We saw more wildlife than on our trip to Yellowstone! The Alder cabin is a quaint little cabin. Looks like one of the original cabins built in the area. There were some great things about this cabin, and some not so great things. The screened in porch is wonderful, especially with all the hummingbirds visiting the feeders hanging off the porch! It felt comfortable and cozy. The owners need to update a bit on the furniture. The chair will break your tailbone if you sit down to hard. The couch is old and worn. The beds are all very uncomfortable.The tub/shower is a old claw foot tub, which is awesome! I recommend them attaching a handle on the wall near it for safety. It is a very high step over the side. My problem was that we were told of all of these fees we would have to pay if it wasn't cleaned when we left... But I had to clean things when we got there... Dishes weren't clean enough to use, but in the cabinet, racks in oven had burned food on them, so when I preheated the oven it smoked up the kitchen! All of appliances were in good shape. There were hairs in the tub, smudges on a towel, and pillowcase. The bbq grill wasn't cleaned, we had to clean it before use. And if you don't like 1-ply toilet paper, bring your own! For the $ we paid I felt like 2-ply was a must. Don't get me wrong, we had a great time. Just a few things I hope the owners will take into consideration, don't have a bunch of cleaning rules and fees and not follow them for your guests. We recommend The Wake coffee shop, Grand Pizza, and The Sagebrush BBQ. The best french dip I ever had!! There is a communal fire pit. Groceries are very expensive, so bring what you can. Hope you have a good time and make many memories like we did!!

Quiet and cozy!

The cabin was PERFECT!!! Rustic but clean and cozy! Could hear the stream from the screened in porch. Soooo relaxing. We were able to walk to town yet be far enough away from the labor day crowds! The moose even stopped by to say hello. The only "weird" thing about the cabin is the placement of the only bathroom. The only way to access it is through a bedroom. Could be "weird" if 2 couples stayed but otherwise AMAZING!
