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. 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.

A nice inexpensive alternative

  • 4 of 5

First, the owners: Veronica and Drew were awesome! On our second night we rented movies and realized the DVD player HDMI port had been broken. We reached out to them and they brought us a new player within minutes. That was great service.

Second, the functionality: the unit itself had everything necessary to function as a home away from home. There were things that you don’t typically find in a unit such as a keurig, towels, scissors, and even aluminum foil. It was all a life saver to us.

Lastly, the fascilities: the unit was exactly as pictured; however, it is in the SilverCreek Inn. The SilverCreek Inn needs a major uplift itself. The walls are thinner than a typical hotel as we could hear things going on in the halls and people walking in the room above us. The SilverCreek staff was great at check-in, and throughout our stay though. The unit itself was clean and sanitary.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive getaway this is your place. Yes, there are nicer places out there, but not near this price point.

Good times in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 nights here, and enjoyed our stay. The room is in a hotel/lodge setting, and the front desk clerk was always super helpful and friendly. Slept well on the murphy bed, and the mini-kitchen had all we needed. There's 3 hot tubs ( 2 indoor and one outdoor ) in the pool area -- great way to relax after skiing at Granby Ranch resort, which is just a couple minutes up the hill.

Spacious and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described. I thought the room might be a tight fit with the murphy bed and sofa bed open, but the room was very spacious. Plenty of room to walk about even with the beds open. The view was nice and the room stayed a comfortable temperature even in the below zero temperatures. Definitely a good choice.

Cozy and quaint room for 2

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place to spend our honeymoon. Our room was clean and had all the amenities we needed. Plus, the view from our patio was amazing. Coming in October was nice since the crowds are not there yet. Very relaxing, would highly recommended.

Couldn't ask for anything more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for us! We stayed for a week, but 4 nights I was by myself while my husband was out hunting. I was concerned I wouldn't be comfortable being alone, but couldn't have been more wrong. I felt very safe here. The resort employees were very friendly. The condo itself was absolutely wonderful. It was very clean and had everything I could have wanted. From morning coffee on the patio to a cozy fire in the evenings, I couldn't have ask for a more wonderful place to stay. The owners were so nice. They gave me hiking suggestions and were so very personable. Next time I head back to Colorado, I will definitely be booking here! Thank you for a wonderful first trip to the Rockies!

Map

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.
