About the property

2 BR/2 BA Affordable Ski-In/Out Condo Located At Base Of Mountain (Granby Ranch)

Mountainside Condo #63 - Ski, Golf, Hike, Bike and Fish - Everything you’re looking for in a mountain rental...direct access to ski hill, comfortable lodging and mountains VIEWS!

Standing in the living room of this extra large condo, you can see the ski runs of Ski Granby Ranch Ski Area (Formerly Sol Vista), the back nine of the Granby Ranch Golf Course and the peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park! Take advantage of the many things to do just outside your condo, or relax on the large deck with breathtaking views and sunsets.

In winter, skiing is an easy 100-yard level walk to the run that takes you to the base area and the Granby Ranch 7 Trails Restaurant and Bar. Want more challenge? Winter Park Resort ski area, another great downhill skiing/biking area, is an easy 20-mile drive.

Take the Quick Draw Lift at Granby Ranch Ski area to start a quick, easy snowshoe hike down Nature’s Way Trail with great views of the continental divide and the slopes of Granby Ranch. Or, drive to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) Kawuneeche Visitor Center, 30 minutes away, for many great trails and ask when the Park Rangers are guiding snowshoe hikes. These are very special guided hikes through untouched areas of RMNP.

The fully equipped kitchen is newly remodeled with unique woodcarvings and a one of a kind rustic bar with local wood accents. Renovation completed with new walls, floors, woodwork, doors, and a new Samsung flat screen TV, Blu Ray player and fully stocked kitchen (spices, Keurig, etc. too). Both bedrooms have new comfy mattresses and upgraded deluxe bedding, plus a Queen sleeper couch and a double futon in the living area. The Master bedroom has a Queen; the second bedroom has a Queen/Twin solid pine bunk bed the kiddos or another couple will love. The condo is exceptionally large with huge windows in the living room and master bedroom to take in the gorgeous views. For additional easy living we installed a FULL size washer/dryer (rare find up here) in the unit and free wireless internet access!

In summer, Granby Ranch provides some of the best downhill mountain biking in the world. Grand County has hundreds of miles of great mountain biking trails for all levels of bikers.

Grand County has four great golf courses, with the back nine of Granby Ranch Golf (formerly Headwaters) visible from the deck. The clubhouse is only a mile away, and has food and beverages for your enjoyment.

Fishing? We have world class fishing in the Fraser and Colorado rivers. If you like lake fishing or boating, Grand Lake, Shadow Mountain and Granby Lakes are less than 30 minutes away. Stop in at Budget Tackle in Granby for all your fishing needs.

About Bob and Leanne

We've been vacationing at Granby Ranch (Formerly SolVista) for many years. Our kids learned to ski here and still enjoy this mountain for skiing as well as the other seasons. Since it's only a quick 2 hour drive from Parker (South Denver) we're able to come up for long weekends and take advantage of all the awesome activities Grand County has to offer. We hope you enjoy your time at our condo as much as we do!

Bob and Leanne purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bob and Leanne chose Granby

While searching for our condo, we stayed at several within the area and this one was perfect - the master bedroom is situated on the back side so it has an amazing view of the Valley. It was completely updated and we felt comfortable from our first glance inside the front door.

What makes this condo unique

Comfort - natural gas fireplace on thermostat which keeps us toasty warm during cold Colorado nights.

Amenities - from flat screen TV's to new mattresses we strive to make this feel like home.

View - the Valley outside our deck is gorgeous and we enjoy every cup of coffee sitting and savoring the beauty.

Space - We are a family of 5 and there is space for everyone.

Location - A short walk to the slopes in the winter or swimming pool in the summertime, we appreciate being so close to the Base. We also love the 30 minute drive to either Grand Lake (Rocky Mountain Natl Park) or Winter Park / Fraser area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved this condo. Short walk to the slope. It was easy to come back to the condo for lunch while enjoying the slopes. Comfortable beds, very clean and it had everything to cook at home. Nice open layout with a great view. Big dining room table and sunken living room we all could sit around and enjoy a movie. Owners were very helpful, courteous and a pleasure to rent from. I highly recommend this place.

Diamond in the rough

  • 5 of 5

We came up for spring break to ski and had a fabulous time. This place was the coolest!!! When I rented it the pictures looked nice but did not expect what we saw when we walked in the door. It was definitely a home away from home. I read the reviews that people wrote and they would say it has everything you need, but we would say it has everything and more... The owners were very nice to communicate with, and from the looks of their place they go the extra mile so renters can have a wonderful stay. The Beds were comfortable, the Condo is easy to get to, and the ski in ski out was awesome. My favorite thing was the fabulous view of the mountains in the living room area and the master bedroom. This place is a diamond in the rough. We will be back. Thank you for a fun week!!!!!!

Quite/relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved how peaceful and quite it was up there to relax and get away for a couple of days! Loved the views. There was plenty of room for everyone, loved how the condo was stocked with the necessities. Added bonus was having internet if I needed to work. It was nice that it close to go out to different places/towns. My 5 yr old at the time loved it and loved being able to go to the pool and just be able to play outside and explore. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away!

Skiing great, condo free wifi not so much

  • 2 of 5

First of all, we found the condo and the owners to be very accommodating. We were warm and spread out, as the size was perfect for our 3 member family. The kitchen had plenty of appliances and cooking features. The bedrooms were fine and beds were comfortable. Plenty of blankets.

As we went through the week, we found the TV had basic service which meant we didn't have access to certain sports stations. This and the fact the wifi was out much of the days was disappointing. As days went by (we were there for a week,) and the wifi service was absent, the frustration grew for several of the family members. We learned from the owners that this lack of coverage was often prevalent! The Mountainside condo office merely said the basic " we are working on it". In this day and age, lack of wifi is should not be a challenge given that there are many reliable carriers. I don't believe we read any previous reviews that reported this problem. If free wifi is important to other renters, perhaps this review will provide them with the information that could guide to booking a condo that has reliable service.

On a minor note, we felt the large sofa was not very comfortable and had a not so pleasant odor. perhaps a good cleaning could help.

Very nice mountain getaway

  • 4 of 5

Convenient location to a lot of activities and Rocky Mtn National National Park. Very clean, and comfortable with modern amenities but a nice rustic feel. Enjoyed view of the valley from balcony. Convenient and warm pool. Appreciated great movie and game selections. Liked the activity and dining tips. Neighbors above were noisy one night and pot smoke drifted in. More traffic noise than I expected when windows were open. Grill downstairs did not seem to get hot enough to grill properly. We did not realize we had washer and dryer in closet in 2nd bedroom until we were ready to leave. Want to come back and try the biking trails.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay...I appreciate you taking time to provide feedback! I'm very disappointed that you smelled smoke as the entire complex is non smoking. Our HOA voted in the past year to be completely smoke free, including on decks and common areas, as we cater to families who enjoy the ski resort area. I will be dealing with this asap and please know if you return as a guest, you can call front office or me directly to report abuse of the policy. Violators can be fined and also removed from property. I will also let them know about grill so it can be fixed. Thanks again. Leanne

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a find. This place was clean, comfortable, easy to find and fully equipped to meet all our cooking, sleeping and game needs. The proximity to Granby, Hot Sulpher, Winter Park and Grand Lake was ideal. My wife, son, two daughters all enjoyed the accommodations. Thank you!!!
