I first came to Grand Lake in June of 1990 to work at the Band Camp as a flute instructor. It was during this summer that I met my husband-to-be, Bart Lone, who also worked at the Band Camp as the saxophone instructor. We were both music education majors and graduated with our degrees in 1991. We married in 1993 and after a few years of teaching, we decided we wanted to see more of the world so we auditioned and joined the USArmy band in 1994.
After completing basic training and AIT, our first duty station was a 3 year tour in Bamberg, Germany. We spent the next 20 years living in Heidelberg, Germany, Viriginia Beach, VA, Honolulu, HI, and Fort Knox, KY but we always wanted to get back to Grand Lake.
Now that Bart has retired from the Army, our 26 year old dream has become reality. We purchased Cabin Quilts & Stitches and Grand Lake Wine & Spirits in February of 2016.
We are now full time residents of Grand Lake, just minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park.
