Granby Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 5 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 7 Baths, (Sleeps 12-20)

BYERS PEAK LODGE

Byers Peak Lodge sits atop a rocky, wooded ridge on 43 acres, adjoining 1300 acres of open space, just 4 miles east of Granby, Colorado. This magnificent, 5 bedroom, 7 bath, 5000 square foot, custom log home is a masterpiece of Colorado mountain architecture. Completed in 2002, the Lodge provides numerous amenities.

Custom rock fireplaces grace the great room on the main level and the entertainment room on the lower walkout level. The fireplace in the great room features two 6000-pound, lichen-encrusted boulders taken from a cliff on the property. One of these massive boulders is a natural replica of Byers Peak, the 12800 ft. , snow-capped peak oriented directly in the center of the Lodge’s panoramic great room windows. The Lodge’s unobstructed views are unparalleled in Grand County.

The dining area is designed for gatherings of friends and family, with a wide, family-style table and adjoining bar and stools. The kitchen features an enormous, wood-paneled refrigerator, two conventional ovens, a microwave, a vented cooking range, two dishwashers, a trash compactor, and two disposals. For outdoor cooking with a view, the Lodge offers a deluxe, stainless steel, gas barbecue located on the main-level deck, which wraps around 3 sides of the home. Or, for those not inclined to cook, restaurants in every price range are abundant in Granby, Winter Park, and Grand Lake.

Each of the five bedrooms features handcrafted, natural aspen log beds with adjustable mattresses. Adjoining bathrooms offer jacuzzi tubs; separate, seated showers with handrails; sink and toilet. Also in each suite or adjoining hall we have washers and dryers (4 sets total) for your after ski laundry necessities.

The entertainment room, quietly isolated on the bottom walkout level, provides the latest in home theater technology. A ceiling-mounted projector and movie screen provide the ultimate movie-watching experience. Guests can choose from a variety of videocassettes and DVDs, while relaxing on reclining leather sofas, loveseats, and beanbags. We have also just installed Direct TV with the NFL package, and 3D capable movies can be enjoyed through the projector as well.

About Nila Watterson

We (Russ and Nila) have been married for 45 years. We have lived in Colorado for 41 years. We have 5 children and 17 grandchildren who love to get together and play, laugh, and eat at the lodge.

Nila Watterson purchased this lodge in 2002

Why Nila Watterson chose Granby

We have loved and owned property in the area since 1985, and purchased the property on which the lodge sits in 1990. We have enjoyed ownership in over 1800 acres, including and adjoining the current site. We chose this site because of its unparalleled view at the end of Rocky Ridge.

What makes this lodge unique

Russ did all of the original design and architectural sketches, which were faithfully incorporated into the final house plans. The massive great room fireplace is constructed entirely of rock gathered from the property. The great room floor to ceiling windows allow a panoramic vista of beautiful Byers Peak and in the Lower foreground some 5 miles away, Granby Ranch Ski Resort and Golf Course.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you and we truly enjoyed our vacation-

We saw a great many Elk in the park and even enjoyed seeing a Bull Elk and three cows by the house one night.

We also saw prong horn deer and a fox, so we really enjoyed the wildlife and the view.

Thanks again for sharing your house-

A First Rate Mountain Top Experience

  • 5 of 5
The location of Byers Peak Lodge is spectacular. The Lodge itself is classy with wonderful amenities: great kitchen with dishwashers; well-appointed bedrooms (jaccuzi in master bedroom), great screen in the theater downstairs with the latest in technology (we watched the two final World Cup Soccer games). A volleyball court provided for some choice competition. The 19 of us, kids and grandkids, were often on the deck and could not get enough of the valley scenery on all sides. Hikes from Grand Lake and pontoon boating on Lake Granby (with swimming) were hilights. We commend and thank the owners for excellent maintenance, cleanliness all around and readiness to respond to questions.
We have no hesitation to recommend this property to any who look for a good time in a good place!.

Wonderful Home with Exquisite view

  • 5 of 5
Our family came to Granby, Co for our son's destination wedding. We had a great time seeing family from both CO and AR. Staying hear allowed all the cousins to get acquainted and play. The adults also enjoyed visiting with each other. The view from the huge windows all around the house was breathtaking. Lots of space to spread out. Well furnished and with seven bathrooms who could ask for more.We also had a 1yr. old and found all our needs for a little one including a highchair, pack and play, and dishes. Loved every minute and the owner was a pleasure to work with. This home lacked for nothing you could want enjoy.

Byers Peak Lodge

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at Byers Peak Lodge! Many of my friends were first time visitors to Colorado and all want to make plans to come back. The views from the deck were spectacular. When you tire of walking and photographing (a camera is a must), there are places to sit on the terrace to relax, enjoy views of a snowy caps of a Rocky’s and prepare a meal for a small army- ( there are two gas grills on the deck) .

This place is unforgettable. A sure memorable experience, and a log cabin-( the word cabin is befitting) is an architectural gem, with great attention to details that make your stay as pleasant as it possibly could be

Snowshoer bunch

  • 5 of 5
A group of us thoroughly enjoyed our very reasonable stay at this luxurious, spacious, and very well appointed lodge. The numerous bathrooms, abundant sleeping quarters, fully furnished house and kitchen made our stay relaxing and fun. A real plus were the heated floors! We would remove our boots at the entrance and immediately feel the warmth of the slate floors underfoot! Everything was well thought out and we felt quite spoiled and pampered--such a treat after a day out in the snow!

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5
Big. Awesome. Plenty of room everywhere in the house. Sledding right outside the front door. WP ski area close enough. Excellent dining area for all to sit together. I've been to many VRBO houses/condos in the mountains. This might be the best we've rented.
