About Hunter Allen

We are avid skiers, cyclists, kayakers, who love fishing, hiking and getting away from the fast paced lives we lead. We fell in love with this beautiful home in this quiet neighborhood perched at the top of a ridge overlooking the serene Granby Valley. Our kids love sledding in the back yard, challenging each other to a game of ping pong in the rec area, and water activities in the lake. This home offers us an ideal location for spending time with friends and family with its perfect central location for access to activities for family members of all ages and interests.

Hunter Allen purchased this house in 2008

Why Hunter Allen chose Grand Elk Ranch

The Granby Getaway is ideally located for enjoying all of our favorite outdoor activities year round. It a beautiful home with amazing views.

What makes this house unique

You have Sol Vista just 5 miles down the road and Winter Park 13 miles down the road. You can see the Grand Elk Ranch & Golf Club right from the house. The Rocky Mountain National Park is also easily accessible.

There is never a lack of anything to do and yet if you chose to relax in the hot tub or just sit on the deck, you are far enough from the 'city' life that you can do so in complete peace. The views are not only outstanding during the day, but at night you can get caught up in star gazing and just sink away from the chaos of the real world.

Wonderful location right in the middle of all our favorite Rocky Mountain places.

  • 5 of 5

We took a family of 12 to this beautiful mountain home. There was more than enough room and plenty for the kids to do with to hot tub and pool table. Great location just out of town with a wonderful view of the mountains from the upper deck.

It’s was good

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I came to Granby for our honeymoon, we had a great time and the cabin was nice but there is a lot of things I would change. We had a bat in our room one night there are cobwebs everywhere and between the couches and beds there is dog hair and food and it’s gross. But I can understand the dog hair because that is hard to get out. If it was my cabin I would take better care of it. But you can’t always get a perfect place so other than that we had a great honeymoon!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your husband were able to enjoy our home! So sorry about the bat! Craziness! I have had the exterminator come and inspect to see if this was a one time strange thing or there is a problem. Right now, no other bats around, so many apologies. Thanks for letting me know about the couches as well, the previous renters before you had dogs (we are a dog friendly home), and our cleaning crew just missed those spots. They will make sure that doesn't happen again! Hunter

Wonderful place!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location with ample space between the other beautiful homes all with majestic views. For this wedding stay it was nice to be close to the Grand Elks golf course and lodge and grille where we shared lunch with our son's new in-law family. The home is very nice and was the venue for the wedding rehearsal dinner. The guests enjoyed visiting on the deck with such a gorgeous sunset. Hot tubbing the day after the wedding was a wonderful way to relax and visit with our family. Thank you for allowing our chocolate lab to enjoy the indoor and outdoor space as well. Hunter Allen graciously answered all of my questions as well as Jo and Silvia, his local staff. There is a brand new grill on the deck that we unfortunately had no extra time to utilize!, along with the ping pong/pool table in the loft! There is ample space with plenty of sleeping choices for a large family to enjoy. For those who visit during cooler weather, the fireplace would be awesome as well as hot tubbing surrounded by snow!! We enjoyed our stay with 5 grown children/spouse and toddler grandson. It would have been handy to have a gate to place on stairs with a toddler. The walkway up to the front door was a little steep for our visiting older guests. Oh, and having a City Market/Starbucks was a nice plus!!

Beautiful luxury log home with large deck and hot tub

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our extended stay after our family reunion at Estes Park. Our family of 6 adults and 4 teens enjoyed the hot tub and grilling out on the deck while enjoying the view. The teens loved having their own space in the basement. We had fun with a family ping pong tournament in the loft. The beds are comfortable and the house is furnished with anything you may need. The owner Hunter was great to work with. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful Granby getaway!

Nice house with lots of potential

  • 4 of 5

I had a family get together here. People came from 4 different states. It was great having this house to come back to at the end of a long day outdoors. The neighborhood was quiet. There was easy access to groceries.

Great stay

Nice big space for 12 adults to stay and not feel cramped. Awesome views! Weather didn't cooperate for getting out to do many outdoor activities so I guess we'll have to come back!
