Property description

BYERS PEAK LODGE

For a video tour of our home, please scroll through the chain of 23 photos. In the 24th picture slot, you will find the video "The Seasons at Byers Peak Lodge." It gives you an accurate perspective of our home, inside and out, as well as the surrounding countryside.

Byers Peak Lodge sits atop a rocky, wooded ridge on 43 acres, adjoining 1300 acres of open space, just 4 miles east of Granby, Colorado. This magnificent, 5 bedroom, 7 bath, 5000 square foot, custom log home is a masterpiece of Colorado mountain architecture. Completed in 2002, the Lodge provides numerous amenities.

Custom rock fireplaces grace the great room on the main level and the entertainment room on the lower walkout level. The fireplace in the great room features two 6000-pound, lichen-encrusted boulders taken from a cliff on the property. One of these massive boulders is a natural replica of Byers Peak, the 12800 ft. , snow-capped peak oriented directly in the center of the Lodge’s panoramic great room windows. The Lodge’s unobstructed views are unparalleled in Grand County.

The dining area is designed for gatherings of friends and family, with a wide, family-style table and adjoining bar and stools. The kitchen features an enormous, wood-paneled refrigerator, two conventional ovens, a microwave, a vented cooking range, two dishwashers, and two disposals. For outdoor cooking with a view, the Lodge offers a deluxe, stainless steel, gas grill, located on the main-level deck, which wraps around 3 sides of the home. Or, for those not inclined to cook, restaurants in every price range are abundant in Granby, Winter Park, and Grand Lake.

Each of the five bedrooms features handcrafted, natural aspen log beds with adjustable mattresses. Adjoining bathrooms offer jacuzzi tubs; separate, seated showers with handrails; sink and toilet. Also in each suite or adjoining hall we have washers and dryers (4 sets total) for your after ski laundry necessities.

The entertainment room, quietly isolated on the bottom walkout level, provides the latest in home theater technology. A ceiling-mounted projector and movie screen provide the ultimate movie-watching experience. Guests can choose from a variety of videocassettes and DVDs, while relaxing on reclining leather sofas, loveseats, and beanbags. We have also just installed Direct TV with the NFL package, and 3D capable movies can be enjoyed through the projector as well.

We are a non-smoking, no animal home, due to the allergies of family members and many of our guests.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: We (Russ and Nila) have been married for 48 years. We have lived in Colorado for 45 years. We have 5 children and 17 grandchildren who love to get together and play, laugh, and eat at the lodge.

Why Granby, CO, USA:
We have loved and owned property in the area since 1985, and purchased the property on which the lodge sits in 1990. We have enjoyed ownership in over 1800 acres, including and adjoining the current site. We chose this site because of its unparalleled view at the end of Rocky Ridge.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Russ did all of the original design and architectural sketches, which were faithfully incorporated into the final house plans. The massive great room fireplace is constructed entirely of rock gathered from the property. The great room floor to ceiling windows allow a panoramic vista of beautiful Byers Peak and in the Lower foreground some 5 miles away, Granby Ranch Ski Resort and Golf Course.
