The bottom level offers a separate apartment that features its own kitchen, a full bath, a bedroom with queen size bed, and a living room with pull-out sofa. Sliding doors open from the apartment to the lower deck and the whirlpool tub. The apartment, with its own entrance, can either provide privacy for a couple that wants to get away from the crowd, or a place that the kids can call their own, something 'tweens' and teens really appreciate! There is no internal access between the apartment and the rest of the house.
Besides eight sleeping spots in the four bedrooms, a pull-out sofa in the living room of the downstairs apartment sleeps two, and a futon in the upper level loft.
Besides having a futon that sleeps two, the upper loft serves as Green Briar Ranch's 'gaming central'. There is a 32 inch monitor connected to an XBOX One. Several XBOX games are provided and the XBOX can also play DVD's. The loft also has a foosball table and the futon provides seating for gamers and spectators. Additionally, the loft provides breathtaking views of the San Juan Mountains during the daytime.

Weather permitting, dining al fresco at Green Briar Ranch is a special experience. The upper deck has two tables that seat four and six, respectively. When the dishes have been cleared, the table for six converts into a firepit to keep the party going under the stars. Additionally, there is a table with seating for four on the lower deck, providing another al fresco dining option, right next to the hot tub!
Green Briar Ranch has an on-demand hot water heater that provides unlimited hot water, something you will really appreciate if you are the last guest to get out of bed!
