Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista) condo description
Welcome to our condo located in the heart of beautiful Grand County. Situated at the base of Sol Vista, we are also only minutes from Winter Park, Lake Granby, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the town of Grand Lake. Year-round recreational opportunities are abundant with 4 championship golf courses, 2 ski areas, mountain biking, hiking, and fishing all close by.
The condo has been beautifully furnished and is ready for you to use. The master bedroom with queen bed, guest room with two twin beds, loft with sofa sleeper, and living room with sofa sleeper, combine to easily sleep up to 8 guests. Beautifully furnished with hardwood floors, tile, and carpet, this unit provides a comfortable and rustic retreat. Sit out on the deck and enjoy the views of the Never Summer Mountains and Headwaters Golf Course. Snuggle up in front of the gas fireplace, relax in the nearby hot tub, or watch a movie on TV. You will feel at home during your stay here.
Summer months are wide open for many recreational activities. The golfing opportunities are phenomenal with Headwaters, Grand Elk, Pole Creek, and Grand Lake Golf Courses all nearby. Mountain biking trails can be found right outside the condo or take the Sol Vista chairlift up the mountain with your bike and connect to a regional trail system. Rocky Mountain National Park has miles of pristine hiking trails. Lake Granby has over 40 miles of shoreline and offers excellent fishing and boating. The Fraser River is known for quality fly-fishing. The historic town of Grand Lake provides excellent choices of restaurants, shopping, art shows, and brew pubs. Sol Vista and Winter Park both host major music concerts during the summer.
The winter months are based around snow sports. Sol Vista Ski Basin, within walking distance, provides a fun atmosphere for family skiing or boarding without the long lift lines. Winter Park Ski Resort is more challenging for the serious skier or boarder and has a free shuttle service. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, and ice fishing are all just minutes away.
Granby Ranch is one of Colorado's best kept secrets. We hope you enjoy your stay here and we are sure you will not be disappointed.

Ski Vacation with kids
Ski Vacation with kids
We picked Sol Vista as a ski vacation this year because we had younger and inexperienced skiers/snowboarders with us. Love the location so close to Winter Park but prices are much more affordable. Kicking Horse condos are very upscale, nice amenities with the hot tub nearby. Our condo was pleasantly appointed and had MAGNIFICENT views. We enjoyed coming in at the end of the day to the cozy fireplace! The layout worked well for us! We had 4 kids along and everyone had a nice place to sleep.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY NEAR THE ROCKIES!
GREAT PLACE TO STAY NEAR THE ROCKIES!
The place is absolutely great- all the things we need are there,great kitchen with stove, oven, dishwasher, garbage disposal,pots and pans, coffee maker- felt like a home away from home, we were able to cook our meals, the location is about 30 minutes from the Rocky Mountain entrance, and the grocery- City Market is about 5 minutes drive, city center which is small but nice is about 10 minutes and it is about an hour and 45 minutes away from Denver. No need for airconditioning during summer as it is nice and cool especially at night. The property is nice and clean, well maintained and there is a heated pool and sauna on Base 1 which is about a 3 minute drive. Our kids loved the pool and we saw coyote, fox and deer along the Village road towards the condo. Would highly recommend this place to anyone- great for families to stay and very close proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park. The owner responded to all our queries in time. At the Granby center, will recommend Azteca Restaurant if you love Mexican food. We did some fishing and kids were happy to catch their first fish- which you can do at the Kaibab Pond (Kaibab Park) about 8-10 minutes away and there is also a playground there- swing and slide and a place to run around for the kids, and do your walking exercise around the park. Overall a great place to stay if you want to be near the Rockies. I'm sure this is a great place to stay during Winter, although we were here for 5 weeks during Summer, the weather has been great although there was one day that it even snowed in Grand Lake on the way to the Rockies. 5 stars rating! Would highly recommend to a family or would easily fit up to 6-8 persons!

We had a wonderful summer family vacation in Colorado. The condo is very nice and spacious (4 adults and 4 kids in our group), great relaxing view, and centrally located to ride the alpine slides at Winter Park, white water rafting on the Colorado River, 4-wheeling in the mountains, and hiking and horseback riding in Rocky Mountain National Park. Great trip and place to stay while on vacation!

We just returned from a weeks stay at this Kicking Horse Condo at Granby Ranch (07/09). The condo was in excellent condition and suited the needs of all 7 of us! The view from the balcony has been mentioned in other comments, but I must underscore the beuty of the area and the view from the balcony. One of my best picures of our vacation was taken from the balcony in the evening. The view of the mountains and the colors of the landscape were amazing! We were in perfect proximity to do things in Winter Park, Rocky Mtn Nat'l park, white water rafting, and by the end of our stay I was wishing I was a mountain biker. Looked liked a great way to keep fit and see the beauty of the area. I would highly suggest taking time to vacation in this area and stay at this condo. Very reasonably priced for what it has to offer!

Our family stayed at this location at Kicking Hourse Condo in August of 2008. We absolutely loved the condo and it location. We were able to be at Winter Park or Rocky Mountain Nation park in just a few minutes. The condo itself is beautiful and has all the amenities you will need for your family trip.

This condo was wonderful. The views were spectacular and the lay out of the condo was great. The owner even has food available in case you forget something and they offer it to their guests (a first for us). We would definitely recommend it.

Had a great time at this condo right before New Years! Very comfortable for 2 adults + 2 teenagers with enough privacy and bathrooms. It was clean and showed pride of ownership and personal touches. We walked to the Kicking Horse lift and never had to wait in line. Thanks!

Why the Owner Chose Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista):
We've always wanted a cabin in the Rockies. We enjoy skiing, hiking and boating and fell in love with the Kicking Horse condos in the SolVista Ski area. We are 15 minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park for hiking and Granby Lake, Shadow Mountain Lake and Grand Lake for boating. Skiing is next door at SolVista or 15 minutes away at Winter Park if you want more thrills (as our sons sometimes do!). We wanted a place with a view and are always awed by the mountain scenery when we lounge on the deck.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The hot tub is great after a day on the slopes or trails. Lounging in front of the fireplace with a good book and watching birds at the feeders on the deck is as relaxing as it gets. There are great resturants in Granby, Grand Lake and Winter Park as well as at SolVista.
