For a video tour of our home, please scroll through the chain of 23 photos. In the 24th picture slot, you will find the video "Rocky Ridge Lodge." It gives you an accurate perspective of our home, inside and out, as well as the surrounding countryside.

This spectacular, one-of-a-kind log house was built by us in 2003. The 18' Engleman Spruce logs are from Southern Utah and were designed and built specially for our home -- truly a work of art! Sitting on 17.5 acres, high upon a ridge, the views are nothing less than amazing, including the Continental Divide.

Each room in the house has been carefully designed and decorated featuring high-end furnishings and comfort at every turn. An individual theme has been given to each of the five master suites, including the Luxury Master Suite, the Bear Room, the Moose Room, the Fish Room and the Cowboy Room. If you are a movie or game buff, check out our movie/game room with the projector TV and 11-foot movie screen with surround sound for a movie theater experience.

We are a NON-SMOKING, NO ANIMAL home. The owner's children, as well as some of our guests, have severe reactions to these allergens, and in order to safeguard their health and well-being, these requirements are non-negotiable.

All four seasons are enjoyed and appreciated in this home. It is a great gathering place, whether for relaxation, fun, beauty, nature or to create memories of a lifetime. Our favorites are tubing down our road in the winter and building a fire to roast s'mores in the summer!

We hope to provide an unforgettable vacation for you and fulfill your dreams!

Weddings - If you are looking for a place to hold a small wedding or reception, this may be the place! Details are as follows: There is a fee of $10 per person for those not already listed in the rental contract as staying guests; the cleaning fee is raised to $300, and damage deposit is raised to $750. Caterers must haul out their own trash. There is a limit of 40 people on the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Oh my gosh.....we had the most amazing time in the lodge. Everything was absolutely perfect and we felt soooooo at home! We literally moved in and felt like we'd been there for years. was a very magical time for our family and we couldn't be more thankful that this property came available when it did. Truly, they did a fantastic job with everything in the house and didn't skip a beat! I would love to have a place like this to retreat to whenever I wanted!!!!

Thank you for everything. truly was a magical time for our family as this was the first Christmas without my dad. We embraced the holiday and filled it with love and memories. We would love to come back sometime! And the Christmas tree was beautiful!!! Thank you!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

We adored this cabin. It was spotlessly clean, spacious, and had a million dollar view. It even came with a playground for the kids! The location was perfect--close to other fun places to play and hike, yet just isolated enough to feel like we were all alone. Winter Park is close by, as is Granby Lake. We gathered family from Oregon, Texas, Colorado, Utah, and Montana, and everyone was thrilled with our experience. The price was very reasonable, and I've been recommending to everyone I know. Thank you for providing us with the perfect place to gather. We won't forget our amazing experiences here!

Absolutely breathtaking views

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our family vacation. There was plenty of room to cook meals and all eat together at the large dining table. We watched movies on the huge pull down screen downstairs at night and woke up to drink coffee to the most beautiful views we have ever seen. Our kids and adults as well played in the snow out in the yard and built a warm fire outside at the fire pit. All in all it was perfect. The only think that I might change is that some of the beds were uncomfortable. I know they were suppose to be sleep number beds but they felt like blow up air mattresses. But that was the only flaw. The moose room bed was very comfortable though. We hope to go back again!!

Company ski trip

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. Our crew has stayed here for 3 years in a row now and don't intend to change that. Nila makes everything easy and the cabin is second to none. Warm, comfortable, large and has great areas for large groups of us to congregate, typically around the kitchen! Thanks again for a terrific stay. Josh in Nebraska

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the lodge. The Cabin was in great condition and ready for us when we arrived. Amenities were all in working order and everything went great for us in our stay in Late September. We had all the bedrooms filled and a few pull out couches and we felt like we had plenty of room. Cant go wrong with this place as a Family get away.

Ski Granby Ranch

Our mountain home is located on 17.5 acres and sits on a ridge overlooking the Continental Divide and Byers Peak, as well as a vast valley view of Granby and Ski Granby Ranch Ski Area. We're located 1.5 hours from Denver and 4 miles east of Granby on County Road 60. Hot Sulphur Springs is located 25 minutes away and is one of the nation's oldest, largest and finest natural hot mineral springs, as well as a swimming pool. Ute Indians once bathed there, healing mind, body and spirit. In the winter enjoy a horse-drawn sled ride in nearby Fraser. Ski Granby Ranch provides skiing and night skiing and tubing -- very family friendly! Snowshoeing and ice fishing in the wintertime. Experience a rodeo over the weekends in Granby. An intriguing fossil bed near Kremmling. Alpine slide at Winter Park. Take Trail Ridge Road over Rocky Mountain National Park for a scenic drive to Estes Park, another fun mountain tourist town.

Other Activities: shopping, boating, kayaking, basketball court, racquetball, mini golf, health/beauty spa, snowboarding, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, horseshoes
