Hello, we are John and Sharon, we have 5 children (currently (2013) ranging in age from 15 to 31), 3 dogs (Shar-pei's we rescued) and 1 cat (also a rescue). Back when we only had one pet she would accompany us to the property, currently we do not bring the 3 dogs with us because they out number myself and my husband, since our children don't generally hang with us anymore.
We purchased this home back when our kids still thought it was cool to hang out with us. They learned to ski or snowboard (we do neither) and we had a lot of fun tubing at various places around the sub-division as well at the Fraser Tubing hill. Our goal was to create this wonderful time and memories with our kids while they were still young enough to hang out with us. While our kids still love us they have moved on to hanging out with friends and girl/boy friends and John and I now get to enjoy the property (occasionally) just to relax. Conveniently the kids take care of the house and the animals while we are away. We figure that at some point the kids will settle down a bit and will once again join us for family gatherings at the Granby house.
It is incredibly relaxing, no matter what time of year. We put a lot of effort into creating a warm homey and inviting atmosphere that ourselves and our guests could appreciate. We wanted to combine a rustic feel with a touch of luxury. There are properties that are far more rustic, and properties that are on the higher end of the luxury scale, we wanted to combine both in the same home. Grand County is a four season vacation spot and we love being able to take advantage of each season. We love being able to share the experience with our valued guests.
