Granby House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 10

Beautiful 3 bdr/3 bath custom home with all the amenities of home. In fact this home has so many features and upgrades that you'll feel like you're 'home' rather than in a 'rental'. Here's some things you'll enjoy:

Location:

- Only minutes up the hill will get you to Ski Granby Ranch (formerly Sol Vista). Probably the most family friendly smaller ski resort in CO and a great place to learn to ski. Winter Park ski area is only 20 min. away. - Three large lakes (Grand Lake, Lake Granby & Shadow Mtn. Lake) are withn a 15 - 25 min. drive. All offer water sport rentals and are a great place to play, fish or just relax. Several other smaller lakes are within 30 min. and there are miles of rivers & streams nearby to fish for that 'trophy' trout.

- Like to Golf? 4 golf courses within 20 min. One is only a driver and a couple of long irons close!

- The house is located in the Innsbruck subdivision but is secluded in a mature Aspen Grove with lots of Evergreen trees and shrubs surrounding the property. Wildlife is plentiful and it's not uncommon to have a deer meander thru the yard!

House:

- Bedrooms: (3) Master w/king and Guest w/queen on main floor. Kids bedroom in lower level - dbl/dbl bunk beds w/trundle. Twin foldout bed/ottoman in kid's room can be used anywhere in house.

- Kitchen: Gourmet kitchen w/stainless appliances, gas stove, microwave, blender, coffee maker, etc. My wife is a stellar cook and has included almost Everything to prepare & serve that fantastic feast! Upgraded plates, flatware, cookware and lots of extra's! Four place 'wine barrel' bar height table.

- Loft/Game Room: very open loft with pool/ping pong table, foosball table, dart board & plenty of board games for your pleasure. Also has queen futon and twin fold out ottoman/bed.

- Dining Room: large 8 place wooden dining table.

- Living Room: spacious living room with vaulted ceiling off of Kitchen with full sized, very comfortable wrap around leather sofa. 32' TV w/DVD in room. Sexy gas fireplace!

- Bathrooms: (3) Full master bath with jacuzzi tub and separate walk-in shower. Full guest bath w/shower. Lower level full bath w/shower.

- Laundry Room: full sized washer/dryer.

- Theater Room: lower level with 55' TV w/blueray DVD. Video DVD library.

- Garage: 2 car garage.

- Deck: (2) one smaller deck off living room w/hammock. Large, secluded front deck with 6 person Hot Tub. Propane grill and patio table w/6 chairs.

- land line phone and secured wireless internet is included. Direct TV.

This three level, mountain styled open floor plan house is ready to be enjoyed! My wife and I decided to make this a 'home' rather than a 'rental' and this can be seen and felt the moment you walk thru the front door. Lot's of extra's and attention to detail. We'd love to share our home with you and have you enjoy it and the area as much as we are.

About John & Kathy Baker

My wife, Kathy, is a 'Hawg' from Arkansas and I'm a simple farmboy from western Kansas (also a KSU Wildcat!). In fact I still own and operate a farm there and my wife is a RN here in Castle Rock,CO. We moved to CO ten yrs ago to enjoy the splendors of Colorado and raise our family here. As of '13 we have 3 boys - one in college (Fort Lewis in Durango, CO), one Junior in HS and the third in 8th grade. We also have two ornery Miniature Schnauzer's in the mix. And as you can see from our photo we are avid Bronco fans!

John & Kathy Baker purchased this house in 2011

Why John & Kathy Baker chose Granby

After an exhaustive search all over the CO mountains we settled on Granby and the Fraser Valley because of all the diversity it has to offer and the vacation opportunities both Summer AND Winter. The house was everything we were looking for: close to 'civilization', typical 'mountain architecture' including exposed wooden beams with an open floorplan and 'elbow room' so we don't feel crowded by our neighbors. We love the weather, the area and the people who live and play here.

What makes this house unique

This house is unique in the fact that although it's located in a neighborhood, it's secluded with lots of Aspen, Evergreen trees and shrubs that surround the house. There's an abundance of light because of lots of windows but still allows for privacy with all the mature vegetation outside. It's the second to last house on a cup-de-sac so there's almost no traffic and it's very quite and serene. Basically, a great place to hang out!

Everything We Expected and MORE!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place for friends to get together and is so close to many attractions and activities. The home is large enough to hold a lot of people (we had 7 adults in our group) without feeling crowded and was very, very clean. Both the game room and media room are awesome, the kitchen is stocked with great cookware and appliances, and all other rooms are exquisitely furnished! Our stay was just too short, so will definitely be back in the future! Would highly recommend this great vacation home to anyone! We absolutely loved it!

WOW!

  • 5 of 5
FANTASTIC!!!! We whole heartedly agree with all the other reviews. This home is beautiful, cozy(but still big), CLEAN, and in a perfect location. Our family of six, had a wonderful holiday where lots of great memories were made due to the easy access to so many different activities and amenities. The house easily accommodates large groups, kitchen is very well stocked and the hot tub is the best at the end of a busy day. Summertime in Granby is stunning. One of our favorite things was going to the ski hill that's 5 mins up the road and taking the "free"(yes, its free during the summer, Wednesday thru Sunday I think) chairlift up to the top and then hiking down. With all the aspen trees around, it truly must be spectacular in the fall. We hope to be back very soon.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house! Thank you for making our Spring Break stay so comfortable. We liked that the location was somewhat "remote," but still close to towns and SO close to the slopes. We figured spring break week would be busy, but it was still so quiet, and Ski Granby Ranch is definitely recommended. Everyone in the area was so friendly. The amenities you provided were perfect, down to the koozies for our beer. The kids loved the loft and didn't venture out of it much, except to go to the hottub. We'd love to come back in a different season and see what else the area has to offer.

A Very Cozy Mountain Home!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at this home and we could not recommend it more! It is obvious the owners have put lots of thought into the decor from the coffee table books to the wall hangings....and every amenity you would require for a ski trip or summer visit.
Our crew was made up of two families with five young children. The bedrooms were all very spacious. We appreciated the layout of the house as it provided some separation of kids and adults. The kids enjoyed watching movies in the theater and playing games and reading the books in the loft. All enjoyed the hot tub after a day of skiing!
The house is perfectly located about a mile from Granby Ranch Ski Area (which we LOVE for our beginner skiers) and close to City Market. The lot is beautifully nestled in the aspen trees.
The property manager was responsive and helpful.
The one caution I have would be that the driveway is very steep and difficult to maneuver in the snow. A 4WD is necessary to park in the garage in the winter.
Overall a wonderful home! We will definitely stay here again!

LOVED this House!!!

  • 5 of 5
As parents of very young kids, we were looking for a family friendly mountain getaway for my birthday! We settled on Granby given friendly mountain ski environment for the kids. We found this house and WOW, it has everything! The house was ridiculously well stocked, we had everything we needed to cook our meals. The house was CLEAN! The pictures were actually REAL vs. a photographer with really good skills! The game and theatre rooms were so fun. We had a little trouble with the hot tub but it all worked out fine. The house was so well lit with all the windows and set in such a beautiful surrounding. The house was close enough to the skill hill and other amenities. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to go back soon!

Wonderful Experience, Full of memories!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved everything this cabin had to offer. We had 5 adults and 3 kids (two under 2) and felt so at home in this cabin. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our own meals. It was close to the ski slopes and close to town. We enjoyed every aspect. Very luxurious and affordable! We'll be back for sure!
