Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista) condo description

The Rocky Mountains have much to offer whether it's Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter.

In the Winter, you can ski or snowboard at the family-friendly Ski at Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista) December through April with terrain park (rails & jumps) and newly remodeled lodge has great restaurant (3-minute drive) or world-class Winter Park Ski Resort (20-minute drive). At night, there is a big tubing hill (ride the lift and they bring the tubes up for you) as well as night skiing on the weekends at SolVista! The shuttle picks up/drops off at our complex or you can catch the Winter Park shuttle across the street. You can also enjoy cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, dog-sledding, ice-skating, hot-sulphur springs and new Fraser Recreation Center with indoor pool! YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch (5 minute drive) has activities year-round.

In the Summer, Bike at Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista) June through September, complete with mountain biking trails and a pump track. Free chairlift rides (it even holds your bike!) all summer long takes you to the top of the mountain. Enjoy a picnic and hike one of the many trails. Golf at Granby Ranch has their own Nicklaus designed 18-hole course! Grand Lake (20-minute drive) is the quinessential summer mountain vacation town. Rent a pontoon or paddle boat and relax on the picturesque lake surrounded by mountains or stroll the quaint streets with unique shops and restaurants. There is also horseback riding, go-cart racing, putt-putt, or hiking (easy) to the majestic waterfall. The entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is here where you can see moose and elk.

Our beautiful condo in the heart of Grand County, Colorado, is located at Ten Mile Creek in Granby Ranch which is halfway between Winter Park and Grand Lake. Our unit is very convenient on the first floor just a few steps away from parking (a huge plus when you have children and luggage). There are two new community hot tubs, a firepit (wood provided), a kids play area with swings/slide, and in the winter a lighted ice rink with nets and brooms! It's ideal for one large family (like ours) or two families wanting to share. If you need more space, our two-bedroom condo (sleeps 6) in the complex may be available.

The master bedroom offers a queen-sized bed, TV, large walk-in closet (big enough for a pack-n-play), and attached master bathroom. (2 people)

The second bedroom also has a queen-sized bed and TV with DVD player. (2 people)

The third bedroom has a twin over full bunk bed plus an inflatable full-sized mattress and TV, DVD player, and GameCube with games perfect for the kids. (5 kids)

We have a very comfortable (Pottery Barn) queen-sized sofa bed in the living room with a large TV and DVD/CD player. (2 people)

Our dining table seats 6 people and the breakfast bar an additional 4 people.

Our kitchen has everything you need for cooking from a pancake griddle, a crock pot and a turkey roaster. And feel free to use our stock of spices and condiments. We also have an outdoor gas grill on the patio. There is a new City Market grocery store and Starbucks located just a two-minute drive away.

We welcome you to enjoy our home away from home!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Hi there! Our names are Karl and Michelle and we have four daughters that range in age from 11 to 18. We are originally from Michigan and moved to Colorado because we absolutely love it here! We prefer the climate and all four seasons that can be enjoyed in the Rocky Mountain state.

                  Why the Owner Chose Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista):
                  We wanted to find a place in the mountains that we could escape to and call our home away from home. Somewhere where there was plenty of outdoor activities to keep us entertained all year-round. Granby Ranch is the perfect place for us!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We love to Ski at Granby Ranch (formerly known as Sol Vista Basin) because it is very family-friendly and no one can get lost because all the ski runs funnel down to the main lodge. And also it's affordable, so all our girls have learned to ski and snowboard here. My husband especially likes that Winter Park is just a 20-minute drive away, so if he feels the need for a bigger challenge...off he goes! I haven't even mentioned the hiking, biking, boating, and so much more that is nearby. We hope you choose to experience what mountain living is all about!
