About The Owner

Hello, we are John and Sharon, we have 5 children (currently (2016) ranging in age from 18 to 34), 4 dogs (2 Shar-pei's and 2 Shar pei mixes -all rescues) and 1 cat (also a rescue).

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Granby

We purchased this home back when our kids still thought it was cool to hang out with us. They learned to ski or snowboard and we had a lot of fun tubing at various places around the sub-division as well at the Fraser Tubing hill. Our goal was to create this wonderful time and memories with our kids while they were still young enough to hang out with us. While our kids still love us they have moved on to hanging out with friends and girl/boy friends and John and I now get to enjoy the property (occasionally) just to relax. Conveniently the kids take care of the house and the animals while we are away. We figure that at some point the kids will settle down a bit and will once again join us for family gatherings at the Granby house.

What makes this house unique

It is incredibly relaxing, no matter what time of year. We put a lot of effort into creating a warm homey and inviting atmosphere that ourselves and our guests could appreciate. We wanted to combine a rustic feel with a touch of luxury. There are properties that are far more rustic, and properties that are on the higher end of the luxury scale, we wanted to combine both in the same home. Grand County is a four season vacation spot and we love being able to take advantage of each season. We love being able to share the experience with our valued guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a terrific respite from Memphis, TN (Swift Family) and Topeka, KS (Rasmussen Family), though with several days of skiing we didn't really rest! Your home worked out beautifully for us - some of us ski ar Winter Park and some here at Sol Vista. My son Jacob doesn't want to leave - he asked me to make you an offer :o)



Thanks again!

Beautiful location, wonderful home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this home, this time in the summer. We had a wonderful trip hiking Adams Falls, riding the alpine slide in Winter Park and watching Granby's fireworks from the hot tub. This house is easy to use, great location and has everything you could need. A great family weekend escape. Thank you!

Wonderful long weekend

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. Plenty of space for our kiddos, us, our in-laws and dogs! That was one of the best parts... typically we can't take our dogs with us, so they were very appreciative to be able to go with us!

The home was great. Very clean and well decorated. It had everything we needed for preparing meals, and has very comfortable bedrooms. The two car garage was nice to have for one of our vehicles and all of our bikes! (Speaking of bikes... the cul-de-sac was great... both my 5 and 7 year old learned to ride without training wheels there this weekend.)

The hot tub was a good size and very clean, with spectacular views. The location of the house can't be beat. Mountain views everywhere, and the grocery store is a short drive down the hill. Granby is very close if you want to venture to eat at a restaurant. Lake Granby, Grand Lake and Fraser are all a reasonable drive if you want to see the area.

The neighborhood is very quiet and makes for some great morning and evening walks.

Definitely a 5 star. I am sure we will try to stay here again... at least until we have our own place in Granby! ;)

Beautiful ski weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house with my parents so they could enjoy a ski weekend with our kids. Turns out Granby Ranch is probably the best family-oriented skiing we've ever done. Our little one is a skier now! And we got to watch the Broncos win the Superbowl in this rental. A wonderful family weekend! Probably a little too big for just one couple and two kids, but to share it with another couple worked out perfect! Thanks!!

Great house!!!! Awesome hot tub!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in Grandby, Colorado. The home was very well kept and in immaculate condition. We were there the week prior to Christmas and had a fabulous experience at Granby Ranch and at the home. The hot tub was the best part...very enjoyable for the skiiers in the group. The beds were dreamy and the baths were spacious. This place is very close to the ski area.

Wonderful home!!!
