EXCLUSIVE FAMILY LUXURY MOUNTAINTOP LODGE ON 43 ACRES

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

I left a hand-written note at your house which you may not have received. However, it thanked you for a wonderful time had by me and my extended family visiting with each other while skiiing, sledding, hiking, playing games and ping pong. We were able to share meals and so many good times. Also, thanks so much for the Christmas decorations which were such a wonderful and welcome surprise. Everyone, young-to-old, had a GREAT time!

A fabulous location for family and friends to gather!

Every aspect of the home is beautiful and the views are fantastic. We especially enjoyed the opportunity for many family and friends to dine together around the impressive dining table. Byers Peak was an ideal setting and location for guests who attended our son's wedding at Granby Ranch. We are already talking about returning next year to celebrate our son and daughter's-in-law first anniversary.

Byers Peak Lodge exceeded our expectations. The lodge is beautifully built and equipped, and it is obvious that it is well loved! We felt like we were a part of the family while we stayed there. The home was large enough that everyone had their own space (there were 9 of us), yet homey enough that we could all congregate and have a great time playing games or just conversing. The media room captivated and entertained the 19-year olds and even some of the adults. Our experience at Byers Peak Lodge was absolutely perfect!
