Nearby is Hot Sulfer Springs - soak in the natural pools year round. In Grand County, there are lots of trails to reach the peaks that can be reached mostly by car and then a short hike to the ridge lines. Be on top of the world in no time.
It is all about the outdoors. Try the Headwaters Golf Course right here at Granby Ranch or nearby Pole Creek Course. Experience the fun and extra distance with altitude. Visit Grand Lake for fun dining, interesting shopping and local micro brews. Winter Park & Fraser offer restaurants, local crafts/shopping and local museums - and a rodeo in the summer. We are only 10 miles from Rocky Mountain Natl Park. This is high country and there are many great trails to explore. Picnic lunches at 12,000 feet are amazing. The scenery is spectacular and wildlife sightings are common.
Granby Ranch and Winter Park are mountain bike destinations and host national championship events. Winter Park Trestle Bike Park opens June 14th, 2014, Granby Ranch will be open May 30th. Winter Park offers a summer luge ride down the mountain, along with trapeze, mazes and other kid friendly venues. Devils Thumb Ranch has horseback riding on very scenic ridge trails. They also offer a wonderful spa package. The Fraser River flows through Granby Ranch - this is a gold medal trout river. Find a spot on the River and experience a special fly fishing event. Mount Evans is a Fourteener on the way in on Hwy 70 - take a few hours and drive up. This is one of the very few 14,000ft mountains with a road to the top in Colorado. See 100 miles in every direction on a clear day. Amazing... and there are mountain goats at the top - right there - most all the time near the visitor area. This road will close in early fall due to snow at the top.
All this is so easy to get to - Denver Airport is about 2 hours from our door. Steamboat is 2 hours north, Vail and Beaver Creek are less than 2 hours west, Keystone is a little over an hour south....so much fun close by.
Groceries/Gas within 2 miles on main highway before entering Granby Ranch. Civilization exists - even a McDonald's and Starbucks if needed.
We have everything to make this our home away from home - and yours as well. Enjoy!
We live in Florida....and wish we could live in Colorado full time. This was our favorite place to relax -high country, open views, and mountains all around. You can see for miles. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Location, location - close to ski slopes, 3 golf courses nearby, all types of outdoor activities.
It's all about the views, the quiet, the clean air.... We enjoy the porch - drinking that first cup of coffee in the morning and watch the beauty of the sun rising on the Rockies. At night, sit in the hot tub and gaze at the Colorado sky and stars.
