This townhome is walking distance to the Kicking Horse lift at Ski Granby Ranch (fka Sol Vista)!
We finished construction on this townhome in June 2010 and then set out to decorate with a modern mountain cabin theme. You will know that you are in the mountains, but everything is very modern and clean. We selected very high-end finishes throughout the house: granite counter-tops, hardwood hickory floors, upgraded carpeting, tile baths, etc.
The house is 1600 square feet with plenty of room for one or two families. The main floor is spacious and open. The living area features a beautiful stone fireplace (gas), leather couch, leather chair and a cow-skin rug. The kitchen, which features granite countertops, is stocked with all of the cooking equipment that you need to prepare a gourmet meal. The dining area looks out onto a large porch (equipped with a outdoor heater for year-round comfort) and a magnificent view of the mountains.
Downstairs is a room with twin bunkbeds and a common room that converts very easily to a comfortable sleeping room with privacy curtains and an extremely comfortable queen sofa-sleeper (visit the American Leather Comfort Sleeper web site if you have any doubts). This room has a 40" high-definition flatscreen TV, BlueRay DVD player with unlimited streaming from Netflix and a large kids DVD collection. Also downstairs is a large bath and laundry room.
Upstairs is the private master bedroom with a king bed with an aspen log frame as well as a master bath.
While the house is modern and sophisticated, it is stocked with kid-friendly features (we have a seven- and nine-year-old): crib, games, movies and toys, child-proofing, baby monitor, etc. You can leave all your kid equipment at home and travel light.
There are so many things to enjoy within 1 mile of the house: skiing/snowboarding, sledding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, mountain biking (cross-country and downhill), golf, fishing and hiking. Within 20 minutes you can easily reach 3 of Colorado's largest lakes (Granby, Grand and Shadow Mountain), the Winter Park resort, the Hot Sulphur Springs hot springs resort, the YMCA of the Rockies and several Dude Ranches.
A brand-new heated pool and hot tub is available to renters at the base of the ski mountain. Walk off the ski slopes and right into the hot tub to soothe your sore muscles.
You will have a wonderful time!
