About Cheryn M-C

Dennis and Cheryn met 37 years ago 'ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN' at Hidden Valley Ski Area- the only ski area EVER! in a National Park. Dennis grew up on a dairy farm in Pennsylvania. Cheryn grew up on the high desert of eastern New Mexico. We fell in love with the Colorado mountains, and each other and have been here since then. Here we are 2016 at Winter Park volunteering with the National Sports Center for Disabled- NSCD

Cheryn M-C purchased this condo in 2002

Why Cheryn M-C chose Northwest

Rainbow Connection II is our second piece of mountain property. Right after we were married we built a passive solar home in Summit County. Economy forced us to move and sell the property. When the kids were in Middle School we found Mountainside 114. We purchased it to have a place to get out of town and let the kids bring their friends.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefits everyone seems to tell us about our condo are: The convenience of ski-out/ ski-in Great ski area to learn to ski. Great family area both for skiing/boarding in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. The view, the birds, the wildlife (we had a fox in the walkway December 2015) The fields of columbines in the clearings in the summer. The stars at night All the amenities we leave in the unit. The spa in the Master bedroom has been receiving lots of positive comments.

Wonderful Location and Lots of Room

  • 4 of 5

Great location just several hundred feet from fhe lift and base camp at Granby Ranch. We were there late September and of course it snowed, but the fireplace got us warm after being out watching the bike races we were there to watch. Large condo with lots of room to spread out with lots of family memorabilia. We would go back - would be the perfect place if you are skiing Granby Ranch.

Owner's Response: Room to spread out. Fireplace and hot tub to warm-up with. Close to the slopes. All reasons why we bought the condo for our teenagers. Now that they are adults, sharing with other families keeps our mountain retreat filled with fun.

Fantastic stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay! The Ranbow Connection (Condo) was super clean and stocked with everything anyone would ever need. Supermarket across street was so convenient. The condo is just a short drive to lakes and Rocky Mountain National Park. The Granby Ranch area even provides many hiking opportunities. Look forward to returning if possible!! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Now that the kids have their own lives, we take great pleasure sharing our mountain get away with friends and family. Our condo was never meant to be a sterile hotel room. We have left out/ provided all the amenities we want, to make our stay fun. Sugar for the humming bird feeders, bird seed for the bird feeder on the deck. Backpacks, fanny packs in the closet for packing picnics and water on walk abouts. Condiments in the fridge along with butter, oil, flour, and spices for cooking and baking. Coffee and tea are ready for your first cuppa in the morning. We are so happy when guests "make themselves at home" in our mountain retreat.

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this location. They keep their facility very nice and hit has a phenomenal view of the valley.

Also it is right next to the base lodge which is nice when you take a walk down. Tennis courts are right there as is the chair lift.

Very comfortable stay and the owners are the best, so nice and very easy to work with .

You will not be disappointed staying here. :)

The property was beautiful. We could literally ski from our front door!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a nice condo. There was plenty of room for my husband and i, our 4 kiddos, and my inlaws. It was nice to be able to make our meals and have a place to relax after a long day outside. We loved our hot tub time as well. Everything was clean and we'll maintained.

We definitely plan to come again. We've already got plans for season tickets to granby and hoping to spend lots more time in the condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. All the things you said are the reasons we purchased Rainbow Connection, Too 14 years ago. We can ski in for a hot lunch. The hot tub is a great place to relax and recover after a long day skiing. It is a great place to wait for the traffic to calm down before heading home. We are so lucky to have Extreme Cleaning keep our place tidy, clean, and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Being friends with other owners who rent their condos on VRBO makes it easy to have enough room for several families to enjoy skiing. The owner of the condo across the walkway works with us to accommodate groups and families who want to stay close and have room for everyone. We work closely with each other to make Mountainside getaways fun for everyone.

Excellent Location & set-up

  • 5 of 5

Right by the slope, so worked out great for skiing. Plenty of sleeping space for 4 kids and 2 adults. The hot tub in the place was a nice added bonus. The property was in very good shape and the owners were very nice and helpful. We would recommend this place to our friends. Grandy Ranch is a great ski resort for families with kids.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that our condo is comfortable and convenient for families who come to ski. It so much easier to keep track of kids from Rainbow Connection II than from the ski area day room or parking lot. Now that our kids are grown it is fun sharing with other families.
