We are sad to report that the Bunkhouse at Sun Valley Ranch was taken by the East Troublesome fire in October 2020.

For those who stayed with us over the years, thank you! We just loved hosting folks in our beautiful valley! We do not know the future as all was lost in these fires. But if we rebuild a vacation destination, we will be sure to let all our past guests know.

With fondest memories, we remember:

My family and I went for a relaxing trip and it was great! The location is perfect and the host was very friendly! The cabin has everything that you need and is right on a private lake. It is also right next to Rocky Mountain national park and so it is great for hiking and seeing wildlife. Then after a long day it was great to just sit on the back porch overlooking the lake to unwind. One more perk is it is close to Grand Lake but far enough away so you feel very secluded. It was a great time for my entire family.


Shawn's property is absolutely breathtaking. If you want to hike Rocky Mountain National Park then this is the place to stay, you can access trails on foot just a block from this cabin.. the the town of Grand Lake is about 4 miles away and is also a lovely little town with great food. Shawn is great and has wonderful communication. I would certainly stay there again!
