About the property

Condo, Bedroom with Attached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We are a retired couple who love and care for our beautiful newly purchased second home. It is our desire that you will too. This place has the feel of a ski lodge, but almost all condos are privately owned, or time shares, so the value you get may depend on from whom you rent. We endeavor to leave you feeling like your money was well spent.

Our AFFORDABLE 805 sq. ft. condo is in the Inn At Silver Creek with fabulous skiing at 2 nearby slopes: Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista) 2 minutes & Winter Park 15 miles, dog sledding, snowmobiling, fishing, boating, summer golfing, biking and Rocky Mountain National Park all within minutes. Big new grocery store & gas station across the street.

Sleeps 6 , king bedroom + studio condo with full kitchen, 2 full baths, Murphy bed (queen), sofa sleeper (queen), your own High Speed WiFi, HDTV with HBO+ (most other condos do not have this), 2 flat screen TVs, 2 phones, 2 coffee makers, toaster, basic kitchen pots and utensils. The king bedroom and studio have private entrances from inside & outside the building, which makes for wonderful sharing by two families. They can be opened for one family, or closed off for two.

Condo building has: beautifully remodelled 2 hot tubs inside, 2 hot tubs outside, sauna room, indoor/outdoor pool, recreation room, racquet ball, restaurant, beauty shop, ski rental shop, many brand new laundry rooms.

About Elizabeth

We are both in our late 60s and partially retired as a system's engineer with wife fully retired as a math teacher. We bought this beautiful condo rather recently and have done work on it. We love this location which is ideally located for almost everything we love except ocean surfing and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Elizabeth purchased this condo in 2011

Why Elizabeth chose Northwest

We bought this because it is ideally located for our grandsons to ski and ideally located for us to spend summers enmeshed in the beauty of the most magnificent mountains we have ever seen. We have seen most of the world, and nearby Trail Ridge Road in The Rocky Mountain National Park far surpasses anything we have seen thus far. Grand Lake and Lake Granby present some of the best fishing and boating in Colorado, and they are both just minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy relaxing in front of the fireplace, while holding hands (yes, we still do that at our age) and reading a good book. We like the view out our front doors, and often leave the doors open so we can smell the fresh mountain air. We love that this lodge has a pool, hot tubs, sauna, and great recreation room and enjoy them daily. One of our favorite activities is watching the smiles on our grandsons' faces as they tube down SolVista Granby Ranch slopes and take skiing/snowboarding lessons from the local pros.

Our favorite time is actually the summer when we fish, boat, and enjoy the magnificent views of our beloved Colorado mountains.

Great property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great!! It is comfortable and decorated nicely. Everything we needed was available to us. The pool and hot tubs were great. My daughter loved them. The location is also very nice. There are trails right in front of the building and lots of restaurants within a mile. The grocery store is directly across the road. Overall it was great!!

It was okay. 2 to 3 stars. The price was comparable to a hotel room.

  • 3 of 5

Overall it was okay. We had alot of fun sking. The ski rental shop on the property was nice and the employees were all very helpful. We did not eat at the resturant. We had planned on cooking are meals in the condo. Very few pans supplied-no glass bowls. The dishes in the cupboard were dirty-we just washed them before we used them. There were no supplies. For example paper towels, garbage liners ect... You really need to bring everything that you need to make a meal and clean up with. You will also need to bring your own soap and shampoo with you. We went to City Market that was close by and bought everything we needed that we did not bring with us. The ice machine on the property did not work. The hot tub inside did not have any jets that worked. The condo was decorated nice and clean. We would probably stay there again. We have rented lots of homes and condos from VRBO and it just wasn't set up the same. So it kind of through us off.

Compact, cozy, but a touch stuffy

  • 4 of 5

The owners of this condo are fantastic. They are responsive and helped me make my vacation one to remember. The condo itself is a combination of two retrofitted hotel rooms joined by a door between. The complex is older and had a "stale" smell upon arrival. This is not the fault of the owners or the room. Additionally, the smell of chlorine was very prevalent throughout the whole complex. The room was clean and tidy. The carpet in the living area as well as the stove were new and speaks to owner's reliability of keeping the place current. However, the baths are old. There were a few crevasses with grime in them, but nothing too concerning, about on par with a Motel 6. The linens were clean and the Murphy bed was made. All we needed to do was draw it down and sleep.

Location was great, even if we were erroneously sent to the wrong address via google maps. For a beginning skier vacation, everything was really convenient, even the Granby Ski Ranch was really close. The complex had a ski rental shop right across from the lobby. I'd like to shout out to the employees there that they were fantastic, informative, and enthusiastic. Although, we didn't make use of it, there are saunas, hot tubs, a pool, arcade, common lounge with board games, and a convention center.

We were very disappointed in the condition of this unit. The over all impression is very worn and old. The carpet appeared very dirty lots of stains The linens where very old and tattered, The master bedroom sheets were so old and worn we did not even sleep on them the towels were tattered. The cookware was very minimal and again old and worn teflon was peeling off. The stove was very small and would not hold a standard cookie sheet. There was no Kleenex or paper towels. We were very happy that we did not have to spend much time in this condo. Not worth the $ we had to spend :(

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, Stacey. I bought new sheets and will take them up in two weeks. They were fine a couple of months ago, but I haven't been up there since. The carpet was cleaned two months ago, but the two stains would not come out. I think someone spilled grease near the stove and then walked on it. We had a professional nearly sweat blood trying to get them out. That is why I put the runner over the stains. Maybe there are new ones too. Again, thanks for the information. I'll fix this. UPDATE: 2/3 NEW CARPET BEING INSTALLED. NEW COOKWARE & NEW SHEETS ON KING BED. THE GUEST AFTER THIS ONE DID NOT THINK ANYTHING WAS WRONG, BUT WE DIDN'T TAKE ANY CHANCES.
