Grand Lake Art and Architecture Home Tour is June 20

Staff Report

The Grand Arts Council is at it again. The 12th annual Art and Architecture Home Tour is on tap for Saturday, June 20.

The tour is from 1-5 p.m. and features five homes on Grand Lake. The homes on the tour this year include four older homes and one newly renovated modern home.

The Paul house is the oldest house on the lake and was built more than a hundred years ago. This house was built on a rock and added on to more recently built by John Adams.

The Thompson house is the classic Grand Lake style with a screened in porch and boat house with split log siding. The house has been partially renovated on the inside but the old fashioned feel remains the same on the inside. The second cabin on this lot is the music room and has a wonderful musical history.

The Sutherland house is tiny but cute with bedrooms tucked away in the attic.

The Waters house is in the protected cove around the corner from Lemmon Lodge. This lovely ranch style home has been renovated with love and has one of the only beaches in town.

The only modern house on the tour is the Dvorak/Blair house. This lovely home has the best view on the lake and is tucked up to Point Park. Soaring ceilings, modern lines and lots of light make this one truly unique in the area.

Participants will be transported to three of the houses via boat, the Waters house, Paul house and Sutherland house. The tour is a self-guided tour so you can start any time and see your favorites first.

Many of these homes have not been on the market for years and this is a rare opportunity to look into some of Grand Lake’s most historic homes. This fundraiser is important to the Grand Arts Council’s mission to bring the arts to Grand County and supports the many activities put on by the GAC throughout the year.

Tickets may be purchased at the Grand Lake Art Gallery or by calling Andrea Cox at 970-521-0804. Only 200 tickets are available, so don’t wait.
