About Julie or Lenny or Stan

This photo was taken near the top of Byers Peak, Grand County, Colorado, elevation 12804 feet. I grew up in the wide open plains of the Midwest in Minnesota. After living in Colorado (Denver area) since 1980, the mountains never cease to amaze me. My husband was born in Montreal, came to Colorado via Chicago. Our co-owners are from Nebraska and consider Colorado 'God's Creation'. We have owned our mountain house since 1995.

Julie or Lenny or Stan purchased this house in 1995

Why Julie or Lenny or Stan chose Granby

We love the central location between Winter Park and Grand Lake for our favorite activities throughout the entire year. Grand County is more relaxed and less crowded than other areas. Our children learned to ski at family-friendly Granby Ranch Ski (five minutes away). What a great place for beginner skiers! Now we enjoy the challenges at WinterPark Ski Area (20 minutes). We are within 20 minutes of the resort town of Grand Lake for browsing shops, boating, snowmobiling, and entering Rocky Mountain National Park. Be sure to stop at the Grand Lake Chocolates & Ice Cream shop. My husband's high school classmate from Chicago is the owner!

What makes this house unique

Kicking back in the house with the fantastic views and the natural log construction is soooo relaxing! Each time we drive into the neighborhood and step into the house we are engulfed in the majesty of the Rocky Mountains and the quiet serenity of the sleepy Silvercreek/SolVista community. And all within two hours from Denver! The house is surrounded by trees on three sides, with the front of the house offering amazing views of the Fraser Valley and surrounding mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comments from stays in Nov. 2009, March and June 2010: We had the perfect Thanksgiving in your beautiful log cabin. Thank you for sharing! We loved the wood stove, the ping pong table, and the beautiful views. We are hoping to return soon!

Another great visit at your gorgeous log home.

We had a great time! We had our grandparents come with us and they live in Atlanta and aren't the "out-doorsey" type and they loved it!

Just what we expected.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time relaxing in your beautiful log home. This was our second time renting so we knew what to expect. Mornings on the deck were wonderful, viewing all the wildlife and taking in the crisp morning sun followed by a day full of activities. Your home is well equipped and enjoyed by everyone. Thanks Julie, for sharing your home. I'm sure we'll be back soon!

Skiing Getaway Vaccation

  • 4 of 5
The log house was very nice for our two families that stayed in the home. It was nice to have the bedrooms on different levels and the rec area was great for the older girls. The views were great, the home was comfortable and very relaxing. Making the reservations and all the instructions were very user friendly and very easy. The owners were great to work with and exhibited great communication. Thanks

Beyond Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5
Unbelievable in every way. Far exceeded what we had anticipated. This was our first go at VRBO and we will be back. Julie (owner) was extremely accommodating and planning from start to finish was seamless. Truly thought of every detail imaginable. The cabin itself was out of a storybook and everyone in our party was in awe. Thanks much Julie for a truly wonderful time.

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the best rentals we have ever stayed in. Everything was just as advertised and even better. The location is perfect for a huge variety of adventure and activities in all directions. Julie went far above and beyond helping us with some travel date issues. This turned out to be one of the greatest family vacations ever for my wife and I, and our two kids. Thank You Julie!!

Five Star Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This property was a perfect vacation spot for our family of seven adults and two children. We loved the view, the spacious rooms, and we appreciated having three bathrooms! We cooked most of our meals at the house and found the kitchen equipped with everything we needed. We loved spending time on the deck- reading, drinking coffee, and eating dinner. It was great being close to biking and hiking trails. We will most definitely consider returning to stay at the log home.

Exceeded All Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
The property not only met but exceeded our expectations. There was ten of us, six adults and four kids, with plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was well stocked with pans, knives, dishes, and even some pantry items. The kids really enjoyed the ping pong table along with the adults. Cable t.v. and wifi also came in very handy. The views were spectacular in a peaceful and quiet setting. It was evident that the log cabin had been well maintained. Everyone was very impressed with the whole experience. We will definitely choose this property again for a big family vacation.

Notes:
Serene log interior, centrally located in Grand County. 20 minutes to Rocky Mountain National Park and Winter Park. 5 minutes to Granby Ranch - SolVista Ski and Headwaters Golf. Mature wooded lot. House is nestled in the side of a hill surrounded by pine and aspen trees (unlike many others homes in the area that feel like suburbia with neighbors 10 feet away and no trees). Our home is private (no neighbors on either side), but not secluded.
