About The Owner
Hello, we are John and Sharon, we have 5 children (currently (2014) ranging in age from 16 to 32), 3 dogs (Shar-pei's we rescued) and 1 cat (also a rescue).
The Owner purchased this house in 2005
Why The Owner chose Granby
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.
What makes this house unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a terrific respite from Memphis, TN (Swift Family) and Topeka, KS (Rasmussen Family), though with several days of skiing we didn't really rest! Your home worked out beautifully for us - some of us ski ar Winter Park and some here at Sol Vista. My son Jacob doesn't want to leave - he asked me to make you an offer :o)
