Overview

About the property

The difference between your home and this Cozy Retreat is the view!

Where better to breathe in fresh air and experience the different seasons than the beautiful Rocky Mountain Range. We are encouraging you to stay longer by offering a special rate of $79.00 on Mon, Tues, Wed & Thurs. Or just sneak away in the middle of your week to take advantage of our discount. Our condo is on the first floor close to the amenities with a beautiful view of the mountains and the pond right out the patio door. And for those of you that like to grill, there is a charcoal grill right next to the pond. If you can pull yourselves away from the view long enough we've added some special items inside the condo. Whether you're lounging on the couch or kicked back in the leather recliner you can enjoy watching sports and/or movies on a 46 inch, 3D television and blue ray player. The kitchen is ready to go with pots, pans and other cooking items you'll need. I've tried to equip the cooks with the necessities to make a nice meal. A few additional nice items in the kitchen that are ready for you are a Kuerig coffee and other hot drink maker, a wide slot toaster, a pancake grill and also a blender is available. We've tried to anticipate and equip kitchen with convenience items for you. One of our newest additions to the condo, in an effort to save space is an armoire that opens to a fold out table. You can make and enjoy a nice meal and then fold it back into the cabinet and reclaim the space where a table would normally be. After you've enjoyed your day you're going to want a good night's sleep. We've tried to make that possible with a newer mattress on the queen Murphy bed and a memory foam on the queen sofa sleeper. We've also bought a few cushioned egg crate for additional softness for those that like a softer bed. We plan several more upgrades going forward but it takes time. I also want to mention the resort amenities. Our condo is on the same side and relatively close to most everything. The Inn had two hot tubs, heated indoor/outdoor pool, a sauna, workout gym, racketball & tennis courts, a putting green, zuma classes, a restuarant and late night bar on site, a ski shop, a hair and nail salon, a photography studio, a game room with pool tables, air hockey and several video, pinball machines and finally there is a family room to play board games or just hang together.

The area around this resort is packed with activities. With spring and summer months here it's a great time to break out the golf clubs because there are four championship golf courses within 20 miles. If you're a shopper, like me, there are plenty of places from upscale to antiques and thrift stores. As the snow melts and the lakes thaw the ice fishing turns to fly fishing. One of our reviews states that the pond close to the resort is great fishing. You can swap the snowmobiles for ATVs and your sleds for horseback rides. There are so many summer water activities up the road at nearby Grand Lake. We'd love to have you stay in our suite retreat. Whether you're inside or out you'll have a wonderful time.

Ski Granby Ranch
"Great family destination. Not as crowded as Winter Park. And the slopes are kid friendly. "

The town of Granby is situated within 20 miles of Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake and Winter Park. Each of these locations is a tourist attraction themselves so having them all within a short distance is a vacation worth taking.

Super cute and cozy!! Exactly as pictured

  • 4 of 5

The unit was absolutely as shown, very clean and welcoming. I can't imagine vacationing in a hotel when there's options like this. In the morning, you can walk right out your door and without driving, take a brisk mountain hike as the mountains are right behind you and in fact all around you. The grocery store is a two minute drive so we never had to 'stock up'. After a day of hiking and eating, we hung by the pool for some down time. The pool was never crowded so I always felt very tranquil and relaxed. I enjoyed the hot tubs very much. It always felt good coming back to the unit from a day/night out. I never used a murphy bed but it was just fine and made good use of the space. The only reason for four stars (and I can't imagine what the owner can do about this) is there is not much storage so we had piles of clothes and shoes in various corners. The closet was full of bedding and I'd rather have the bedding than the closet. Not a big deal. We would definitely come back to this unit! Highly recommended.

Great Place!!! Everything you need in a room

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need in a room plus some home touches!! Across the street is a grocery store to make some home meals. And of course the best part.... beautiful Colorado is all around!! What more could you ask for! No complaints. We had a great time. Hot tub and pool that is with the resort is an added bonus.

The unit was nicely equipped for 2 people.

  • 2 of 5

Dated but nice place to stay in Granby. Mattress needs to be replaced and the bathtub was a little sketchy. Did not see the advertisement that the unit does not have air conditioning. Tried to leave the window open but the smell of pot smoke coming from surrounding units was too much to handle.

Throw Your Money Away but DO NOT Stay Here

  • 1 of 5

The property was filthy, disgusting, and run down as was the inside of the condo. The condo itself was cobweb infested as well as having mouse drippings on the bathroom floor. The bathroom is deplorable, particularly the shower. The bed that comes out from the way is the most miserable and Uncomfortable bed I've ever felt, we ended up sleeping on an air mattress in the living room. The stove was disgusting and even startedsmoking when we first turned it on and the land are so scratched but I'm sure Salmonella is just waiting to happen ! The walls are paper thin, so thin that you can hear the person next to you fart if you listen just closely. Oh and finally the owners who rents out this condo yeah they don't really live in Oklahoma they also live at the Silver Creek in and will spy on you for the entirety of your trip and then send you emails pretending that someone turned you in for barbecuing well other residents of the Silvercreek and have barbecues on their premises as well. They claim that the condo has Wi-Fi and it has Wi-Fi and as long as you don't want to use it to actually get on the Internet you'll be just fine. Take your money burn it rip it up and throw it away because that's the exact same thing you'll be doing by staying at this condo! #digusting #filthy #deporable #creepyspy

Owner's Response: Thank you for a thorough review, we regret that you did not enjoy your four day stay. As anyone can see from our reviews, the majority of guests, including repeat guests, have a positive experience. I would like the opportunity to respond to your review & mention a couple of matters that you omitted . We inspected after your departure for cobwebs but we could not find any. I would think if there was an infestation of cobwebs they’d be pretty easy to spot. In regards to the bathroom, the room had previously been painted, a new light fixture, and a new toilet. We did discover the “mouse” droppings was a piece of rubber from toilet installation. The previous guest did use the stove, our housekeeper said she had put cleaner on the burner and it briefly smoked. Also a breadcrumb found in the oven, which we apologize for. On the mattress comment, we have many guest with many different preferences. We simply do not have the ability to provide multiple mattresses to suit each guest. Although the interior walls of the building are not sound proof, we do feel that your crude example is a bit of an exaggeration. Yes, the wifi is spotty, we are surrounded by the Continental Divide and Rocky Mountains. We could have made you aware of this, had you told us that you were planning on working during your stay. You told me yourself that your boss gave you an unexpected deadline. Finally, the issue with the grill, for safety the policy of the Inn does not permit grills to be used on patios or decks. Guest are typically made aware of the policy upon check in. Anyone using a grill is either somehow unaware or acting in defiance of the policy. Rather than send security, out of respect for your privacy, we sent you an email communication. By the way there is a barbecue grill 8 steps from our patio. Because we love the area so much we moved here from Okla city and purchased an additional unit last fall. We will need to update that on the VRBO listing and thank you so much for pointing that out to us. In conclusion, two things that you omitted. Because of the wifi issue and your work deadline, we did give you a courtesy refund of a $100 dollars, not to you directly but to the person that actually paid for your stay. Also you failed to let us know that our massage recliner was damaged during your stay. We had to replace the chair after your stay. Best wishes on your future trips.
