Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista) house description

SKI, BIKE, HIKE, GOLF. Enjoy year-round activities in the Rocky Mountains with the Log House Retreat as your base.

Minutes from beautiful Winter Park, Grand Lake and Granby Ranch (SolVista)! Feel the tranquility of the Rocky Mountains in this inviting 2200 square-foot custom log home. Enjoy the endless activities available in Grand County, then relax on the deck with a spectacular 180-degree, panoramic view of the Fraser Valley and surrounding mountains. Nestled in a mature, wooded slope, the house backs up to acres of undeveloped forest; no neighbors on either side. (Granby Ranch Ski area is over the hill.) It is common to see deer grazing on the property. Our home is private, but not secluded, just minutes to numerous activities.

Enjoy the view while surrounded by the natural beauty of log construction. The main level includes open living room/dining room (dining table expands to seat 8 plus 4 at counter), full kitchen, laundry room, full bath, and two bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom on the upper level has an adjoining bathroom. A sofa sleeper in the living room accommodates two more for sleeping. The lower level includes a full bath, a mudroom for your gear, and large family room with a ping pong table.

Play in Grand County! There is something for everyone within minutes of this Rocky Mountain get-away.

Out the front door: Take a walk in the sleepy Silvercreek community or walk/snowshoe to the nearby trailhead.

The Granby-to-Fraser Trail is within walking distance from the house. Don’t forget mountain climbing, classic Colorado stream fishing, lake trout fishing and other water activities.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1995

                      About the owner: This photo was taken near the top of Byers Peak, Grand County, Colorado, elevation 12804 feet. I grew up in the wide open plains of the Midwest in Minnesota. After living in Colorado (Denver area) since 1980, the mountains never cease to amaze me. My husband was born in Montreal, came to Colorado via Chicago. Our co-owners are from Nebraska and consider Colorado 'God's Creation'. We have owned our mountain house since 1995.

                      Why the Owner Chose Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista):
                      We love the central location between Winter Park and Grand Lake for our favorite activities throughout the entire year. Grand County is more relaxed and less crowded than other areas. Our children learned to ski at family-friendly Granby Ranch Ski (five minutes away). What a great place for beginner skiers! Now we enjoy the challenges at WinterPark Ski Area (20 minutes). We are within 20 minutes of the resort town of Grand Lake for browsing shops, boating, snowmobiling, and entering Rocky Mountain National Park. Be sure to stop at the Grand Lake Chocolates & Ice Cream shop. My husband's high school classmate from Chicago is the owner!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Kicking back in the house with the fantastic views and the natural log construction is soooo relaxing! Each time we drive into the neighborhood and step into the house we are engulfed in the majesty of the Rocky Mountains and the quiet serenity of the sleepy Silvercreek/SolVista community. And all within two hours from Denver! The house is surrounded by trees on three sides, with the front of the house offering amazing views of the Fraser Valley and surrounding mountains.
