The Owner purchased this condo in 2007
We started coming to Granby Ranch about 14 years ago. Our kids were just starting to ski. The cost to ski is very reasonable and lift lines are short. The people that work at the ski area are very friendly. We looked at properties at other resorts and kept coming back here. The last time we came we saw there was a new grocery store by the entrance. We knew something special was going on here and we were right. This is the place to be. Still in a growth phase. We always come here and think we are home!
By staying here you have the benefit of lots of skiing without crowds. You can ski right to our parking lot at the end of the day or for breaks. Go inside, return and then walk right over to the lift and start skiing again. We have an indoor pool and amenities building just below our unit. You can walk there in 3 minutes or drive. Best thing is it's quiet at night.
We are the owners of this condo in Granby Ranch. We purchased this unit in 2007 after staying in units like this before we bought. We looked at many areas in the mountains and kept coming back here. It's a great place to be any time of the year. We appreciate your time put into finding a rental unit to stay in. We are definitely ski in and out in the winter. The lift is at the end of our short parking lot. The rest of the year we are right in the middle of everything. Great hiking right out the back door! Give us a call or reply if you have any questions.
We had a great time in Granby! The condo was clean, affordable and the ski-in/ski-out part was so convenient. We had a family of 6 (2 adults, kids ages 10, 8, 5, 3) and we had plenty of room. The condo has everything stocked that you need for cooking. It was also nice that they had games/movies for your kids to keep them entertained while the older ones were skiing. Thank you Jeff and Sue!!
This was our first trip to Granby Ranch and we loved it! The Condo was great. We really loved the fact that it was so close to the lift. Being able to ski back and take a break for lunch was AWESOME! The kids would come and go as they pleased. The condo was super clean and neat. The kitchen was nicely equipped with everyday necessities. Jeff does a great job making sure you have everything you need. Jeff and Sue were wonderful to work with very friendly and very helpful. We will definitely go back. While we were there it snowed none stop so it was great! We went to Winterpark to eat for Christmas which is about 15mins away they have some really nice places. Also loved the fact we could look out the window and see the deer. This place is the spot!!! You don't want to miss out on this little secret!!!
We had such a great family vacation staying at this condominium! The owners seem like wonderful people. It was quiet and relaxing, and yet there were plenty of fun and enjoyable things to do nearby.
My family and I really enjoyed the condo and were thrilled to have a ski lift just outside our door. Granby is a great place to ski without all the crowds and lines. The owners are very pleasant to work. We hope to stay here again!
Family of 4 with 2 late teenagers. We had a fantastic time at this place. The loft is ideal for our daughter. The rooms are warm with private heating units. Getting on/off the Kicking Horse lift was so easy and convenient. We feel totally spoiled. We really don't want to ski anywhere else now. The night ski, between xmas and NY week, was awesome. We're grateful to the landlords. They're the best.
Our family of 6 (2 parents and 4 college age kids) enjoyed our stay at your "Mountain Escape"!!
The condo was roomy, comfortable and convenient to ski, restaurants and grocery shopping. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed and the ski/in ski/out was terrific; really easy to get to!! Everyone could ski until they were done and return when they wanted!! The lift prices were great, especially with the e discount book we purchased at City Market!! It's only about 30 minutes from Winter Park, we skied there one day. I prefer the local slopes, the runs are nice and the ticket prices are half of Winter Park!
We enjoyed using the amenities center hot tub; we chose not to use the one in the room since the one at the amenities center was bigger.
We also visited Hot Sulphur Springs which is about 30 minutes away. (Note: take some flip flops if it's below freezing; they put salt on the pathways between the tubs and it hurts the feet!!)
Overall, we enjoyed our stay, the condo was great and the people renting it were very nice! I promplty received my deposit after our stay. We would definitely stay here again!!
Water rafting is available in the summer. The raft company picks up and returns to the grocery store. This is a relatively slow paced, easygoing guided tour. It is enjoyable for all ages. For more information contact us!
