Granby House Rental Photos and Description

The Perfect Luxury Retreat!

Welcome to your Luxury Retreat at Ski Granby Ranch (f.k.a. Sol Vista Ski Basin). The home is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the Tall Timber Cabins development offering a central location, yet a serene feeling of privacy as well. An aspen grove is located off the front deck, and there are great mountain views throughout the home. You will be within walking distance to the ski run served by the Kicking Horse/Owners' Ski Lift and a short drive to the base lodge. The home is equipped with a whole house humidifier so guests will be more comfortable in the dry air at 8200+ elevation.

The Master Suite features vaulted ceilings, a King bed, dresser, two night stands, walk-in closet, and private bathroom with tub and shower, slate flooring, custom light fixture and a 26 inch LCD TV with built in DVD player.

The Guest Suite has a California King bed, an aspen rocking chair, dresser, two rustic nightstands, lamps and a closet. A full bathroom is located adjacent to the Guest Suite that can be shared with guests staying in the Loft.

The Loft is accessible by a stairway and features vaulted ceilings, two comfy Queen beds, lamps, armoir with two drawers and a 32' TV with DVD player. A Wii Console, games and Netflix will keep the kids (or you) entertained. The loft is my favorite sleeping area.

The home also features a large living room with a gas fireplace surrounded from floor to ceiling in beautiful stone veneer. The living room also features slate flooring, vaulted ceilings, 8 windows with great views of the mountain, a comfortable sofa, leather chair and ottoman, rocking chair, beautiful persian rug, coffee table, along with a 46 inch LED HDTV over the fireplace. A small desk and printer also are next to the fireplace for your convenience. The living and dining areas have hand stained hardwood floors.

The kitchen features granite counter-tops, a large island with three stools, next to a round dining table with four chairs. Located next to the dining table is a buffet with an integrated wine rack. The kitchen also features an electric range with glass stove top, microwave oven, toaster oven, dishwasher, coffee-maker, ice-tea maker, along with dishes, mugs, utensils, and various and sundry cooking items such as pots, pans, cookie sheets, mixing bowls etc.

The home also has a covered front porch/deck and a small rear deck. Patio furniture and a small propane BBQ are available during fall, spring and summer.

During the winter you can ski-in to the property via the Home Again trail (snow conditions permitting). You can access the Kicking Horse/Owner's Lift via a short two block walk (3 to 5 minutes) and ski to the base lodge or take a very short drive or shuttle ride to the base lodge.

Snowshoeing, sledding, hiking and mountain biking are right outside the front and rear doors. Granby Ranch also features the Headwaters Golf Course, world class fly-fishing, and mountain biking. Great wild-life viewing is available from my living room and dining areas (e.g., fox, deer, elk, hawks, eagles), not to mention the reasonable drive to Rocky Mountain National Park for additional wild life viewing.

For the adventurous types white water rafting, zip line tours, Rocky Mountain National Park, Hot Sulphur Springs and Grand Lake are all within a short drive.

For the non-adventurous types, tubing, hot tub and swimming pool are available at the ski resort base. Devil's Thumb Ranch also is a short drive and has a full spa, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, horse drawn sleigh rides and other activities for day guests. Alternatively, you can visit Grand Lake, Fraser, Winter Park or the Y of the Rockies for many activities, including boating, horse-back riding, snow-mobiling, dog sled tours, cross-country skiing and shopping.

About Dan Stein

I have enjoyed skiing, backpacking, camping and hiking since I was a child. I've had the ski bug for some time and have skied all over California, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Canada. Once upon a time I worked as a lift operator at Mammoth Mountain (Chair 4) and later worked in a ski shop at the base of Breckenridge.

There is so much to do at Granby Ranch and the surrounding areas, including skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, fly fishing, hiking, golfing, and snowshoeing at Granby Ranch. We've explored Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake and Devils Thumb Ranch for a good meal, happy hour and great spa services.

Granby Ranch is a great launching pad for a fun-filled activity based vacation, or a mellow vacation sitting in front of the fireplace and drinking hot cocoa. I never tire of watching the quaking aspens from my front deck in the summer and fall, nor the foxes that pass by my home.

Dan Stein purchased this house in 2006

Why Dan Stein chose Rocky Mountain National Park

My property is on the quiet end of a cul-de-sac, yet within walking distance to the ski runs. You may ski back to the back deck of my home via the Home Again Trail (snow conditions permitting). The property is within an easy drive of the resort base lodge, the Grange Hall and close to City Market to stock up on food for your trip, a liquor store, Subway, and McDonalds for the $1 value menu. You also will enjoy the Grange Hall swimming pool and heated in-ground spa, available only to homeowners and their guests.

What makes this house unique

My favorite room is the Loft. The beds are comfy and the view of the night sky is superb. It is a great place to hang out with friends and loved ones. Granby Ranch is a family friendly resort, great for first time skiers, snow-boarders, golfers and mountain bikers, but with enough variety for the experts too. Winter Park Ski Resort, Mary Jane, Steamboat Springs and the Front Range Ski Resorts (e.g., Keystone and Breckenridge) are within driving distance for those who desire the big mountain experience.

Beautiful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Granby home. We visited in July and the weather was perfect. The views are spectacular and we hiked every day. There was a City Market fairly close in case we needed anything and all the amenities at the house to feel like you were at home. We spent a day up at Grand Lake a short drive away and rented paddle boats. We met the neighbors and they were very friendly.

The ideal place to reconnect with yourself and your family!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the drive over Berthoud Pass in the rain through Winter Park, Tabernash and Fraser was gorgeous, breathtaking, and awe-inspiring! We were already in heaven and then we rolled into Granby...our FAVORITE place of all! Why? Views, rainbows, wildlife, nature all around, pine-scented air...WOW! This home was beyond all expectations! It is very the end of the street...on the side of the mountain! We saw elk on the side of the mountain one morning during breakfast! The kitchen made eating in so easy. It had everything we needed, including a dishwasher! We enjoyed opening the windows and sleeping with the mountain air breezing through the house...absolutely relaxing, restoring, revitalizing. There was a wonderful selection of board games and television options! The beds are so comfortable. We honestly felt like we were at home. The porches on the front and back were spectacular for views and fresh air and one-on-one conversations! The laundry facilities were fabulous as well, so we didn't come home with a carload of dirty laundry! The home is welcoming and accommodating, as well as cozy and practical. It is decorated warmly and invites you to settle down and settle in. It's a short drive to Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park, both amazing destinations! We all 4 agree that this is the property we hope to rent again next Summer, and the next, and the's somewhere very special. We arrived August 4 and left Aug 10. While there, the most delicious Chinese food we have ever eaten was found at Pearl Dragon in Granby. The King Sooper grocery across the highway from Ski Granby Ranch was a terrific resource for meat and produce. I have already told my parents and my brother and they are interested in this property for their next visit to Colorado. I think renting a home trumps renting a hotel room for many reasons, including these: Space, Amenities, Privacy, Food Preparation Options, Comfort, and Quality of Life. Our family of 4 had the best time on a vacation yet in our history of vacations! We have been on a cruise together, gone to Hawaii, and been to many beaches, and NOTHING MATCHES OUR EXPERIENCE IN COLORADO! :-) Peace and Love, The Smiths

Review of Colorado Home

  • 5 of 5

I had a lot of fun while staying here. It felt like a home away from home, and the snow made it better! It was a nice place to relax and look out the windows at the beautiful views.

Great Location for skiing and snowboarding

  • 5 of 5

The property is within a 10 minute walk to the ski run. No need to ride the lift, you can ski right on it. After a day of snow fun it was nice to know the home was a short 10 minute walk back. I loved that I was able to watch my kids play in the snow from the any of the many of the windows around the home. The view was great as well, as there are no homes on one side of the house. I will be back for more fun in the snow.
