BYERS PEAK LODGE
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 "The Seasons at Byers Peak Lodge." It gives you an accurate perspective of our home, inside and out, as well as the surrounding countryside.
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, and two disposals. For outdoor cooking with a view, the Lodge offers a deluxe, stainless steel, gas grill, 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 are a non-smoking, no animal home, due to the allergies of family members and many of our guests.

About Nila Watterson
We (Russ and Nila) have been married for 48 years. We have lived in Colorado for 45 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
Why Nila Watterson chose Granby
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.
What makes this Lodge unique
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.

The propert is beautiful with stunning views! The house was perfect for our 14 family members!
We went over Thanksgiving week and we were also celebrating my dad’s 80th birthday. There wer 14 of us, all adults, and I must say it was very comfortable, plenty of space. It was a great location to get our whole family together and share some special memories.
Thank you for your review. We are always thrilled when our guests were able to make some new memories in our home, as well as share the old ones. Please do come again!
The most beautiful and secluded home we have ever stayed in!
This home was so clean and beautiful! The view of the mountains was breathtaking! The kitchen was equipped with every thing you need to cook for a large family. I took my kids and grandkids in March, 2018, and we never felt like we were crowded. The theater room is amazing! I am sure we will stay here again next time we travel to Granby. I can't say enough about this home. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to use their home.
Great house and beautiful scenery.
Only downside I would say is that all the full bathrooms are in the 5 rooms. As long as you plan accordingly on sleeping arrangements, you should be ok.
Thank you for your response. Each bedroom suit has its own full bathroom, which includes shower, tub, sinks, and toilet. There are also 2 powder rooms with toilet and sink, one conveniently located in the entry, and the other located in the hallway leading to the theater room in the lower level.
Great and beautiful home!
We were a little nervous when the owner gave us the instructions and told us about the septic water system. However it was no biggie in the end. The master bedrooms are beautiful and relaxing! The view from the balcony is breathtaking, the best view we ever had. I would recommend this cabin style home to anyone! The pictures don’t do it justice! It’s really a beautiful home down to the last details on everything.
We're so glad that you enjoyed our home! A point of clarification: Our wonderful water comes from a deep mountain well and is safe and delicious to drink. Our waste disposal system is an engineered septic system, which is common to all rural properties, and functions perfectly.
The first day we met Mr. Watterson finishing up some minor mantainence and he gave us the grand tour! The home and the view exceeded our expectations! Everything was beautiful. If there is any negatives it would be the beds, but we have traveled enough to know the beds aren't going to be like home. We got over it quickly! Love this house, the craftsmanship and love Colorado! We will most certainly be back!
We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Byers Peak Lodge, and we hope that you will come again. You were ideal guests.
We bought our Sleep Number beds with the intent that being able to adjust the degree of firmness of the mattresses would help our guests be able have the most comfortable night's rest possible. It is true, though, that nothing is quite as comfortable as home!
This incredible home is exactly as presented in the YouTube video The Seasons at Byers Peak Lodge.
This Home afforded us the opportunity to experience Colorado and her magesty beyond our expectations! When we first arrived at dusk after a long car ride we were escorted up the drive by a young coyote who darted off the property as we started into the house. Regrettably we never saw him again but later in the week we were allowed to see a young deer family grazing in the distance as well as what appeared to be a hawk soaring overhead. The view of the mountains and ranch below is breathtaking! This home masterfully built by Russ the owner wants for nothing other than a longer stay. The serenity on the deck as the sun rises and sets melts away every ounce of stress and later into the night the stars of the Milky Way deliver another unexpected vista. We just didn’t want to leave...and when we did only to explore Rocky Mountain National Park a short distance away we couldn’t wait to cozy up back at the lodge for a fun movie in the theater room. You will not be disappointed in this Home other than wanting to share it with the rest of your family. It’s our dream to return with ours someday and I’m eager to see what it’s like in the Spring. This house is a Home lovingly cared for by Nila and Russ. Don’t hesitate just book it.
