About Peter Black
Four of the Black family siblings own Lazy RB Ranch, along with their children. Our parents grew up in the area, and returned here for summer vacations starting in 1952. Peter Black has lived in the Boulder area since 1967, and is now a retired school teacher, taking on management duties at Lazy RB.
Peter Black purchased this House in 1967
Why Peter Black chose Winter Park
Robert & Reggie Black purchased Sky Valley Ranch in 1952. The 'New House' was built in 1967. The ranch has since been divided between family members, and the upper house, is now called Lazy RB Ranch, named after its registered livestock brand.
What makes this House unique
We love the memories we have of our times at Lazy RB. The whole family loves the ambiance of the crackling fire in the evenings. Many, many ski weekends have been enjoyed, using the house for 'home-base'. The sunsets can be so spectacular that they silence conversation. It is a magical place.

Sports & Adventure Activities
We loved our stay. Our kids spent hours looking at the view, both sunrise and sunset are spectacular
Great location. We used the Safeway shuttle to get to MJ and WP. Very easy. Loved the fireplace.
Very comfortable. Has all the amenities you could ask for. Great view!
Thank you very much, Samuel! We're happy that our guests enjoy the unique Lazy RB House.
Amazing weekend away
We had three families (10 people) stay at the Lazy R B Ranch over a three day weekend and had a wonderful time. Peter was a great host who embodied hospitality - he met us there with complimentary drinks & coffee, removed the snow and gave a tour of the home. The home is a sprawling mid-century modern (think Frank Lloyd Right) jewel and we immediately felt at home. The location of the home was ideal for us because it's right next to Devil's Thumb Ranch (half of us cross country skied) and about 20 minutes to the Winter Park Ski Resort.
We will definitely be back again!
Unbelievable Home and Views...Outstanding
Have you ever seen one of those places in photos or on TV and imagine to yourself, "Wow, I'd love to experience that with my close friends and family!" and then wonder how you could ever have that opportunity. Well, this is that place. The view from the backyard of the house is enough in itself for you to decide to stay. You'll find yourself wanting to just sit outside, relax, and enjoy the scenery all day! The house is very spacious and provides plenty of sleeping space. We loved how authentic everything is in the house, the architecture, the style, and construction. Aside from the house and view, Peter is an excellent host. He's very hospitable, generous, and goes out of his way to make sure you have everything you need. If you do need anything you may have forgotten, the town of Fraser is roughly 6 minutes down the road, easily accessible. And Peter is sure to have good recommendations on where to eat out if you feel the desire to do so. My overall experience was a 10 out of 10 and I plan to return to rent through Peter so I can share the experience with others.
Thank you Peter Black!
Thank you, Patrick. Those are the reasons our family still goes up to the ranch whenever we can fit in a view days! We've enjoyed the house since 1967, (and the property since 1952!)
Perfect Home for a Family Vacation
We rented this home for a wedding that was close by for our family of 6. Do not hesitate to book this property, it is in an outstanding location! The views are truly breathtaking. We enjoyed waking up each morning to see the horses in the pasture below and watch as the sunlight changed the beauty of the mountain range. The home is set up so nicely with bedrooms on either end of the home. Also, having 4 bathrooms made getting ready for our special events super convenient. The home made our stay very special we felt lucky to have found this property. The owner is very kind, responsive and provide great info.
A fantastic estate with views forever and privacy for days!
This property is amazing! We wanted to get out of Denver and chill. We did just that! It was so peaceful sitting outside, on the back patio, and the birds created a great soundtrack for us to here. The house was fully stocked, beautiful decor and a great sound system! We are thinking about making this a yearly trip and we all agreed this house is the house! Thank you so much Peter!
Thanks, Shelly! We like everyone to know how gratified we are when visitors totally "groove" on Lazy RB!!
While the residence is private & secluded, it is conveniently close to all the popular winter and summer activities of eastern Grand County.
