Granby Ranch – A Family Affair

Grand County may be one of the most beautiful parts of Colorado I have ever seen. Nestled in the hills of Grand County, in between Fraser/Winter Park and Granby Ranch, is a community packed full of outdoor activities and a family-friendly neighborhood. The amenities within this close-knit community are endless.

If you are looking for a place to buy that has the ability to entertain all ages and still be able to find quiet and solace, Granby Ranch is a great option.

SolVista ski resort is right in the middle of the community. I spent a few years snowboarding on this mountain. It is a great place to learn and hone your skills. In the summer season, the mountain transforms into world class mountain bike terrain that challenges even the best of bikers. Headwaters Golf Course is another summer favorite. The course also has views of the Continental Divide and your ball will sail through the air at this altitude. There are 3 miles of blue ribbon fishing along the Fraser river to test your skills as a fisherman.

Enjoy wildlife? You are in luck! There are 600 miles of hiking trails woven throughout the mountains. If you are hungry after all that hiking, the delicious Seven Trails Grille is a great place to stop and refuel. I had the pleasure of taking cooking lessons from the head chef, Karl Vogelbacher. I have found no match to the level of cooking he is capable of.

The best part? If your guests would like a place of their own while visiting, there are rental condos nearby or they can rent out Rivercamp: a fully stocked camp with cots, a fire pit, cooking utensils, tents on platforms, and a streaming river that parallels it.

There is also a members-only club. Membership to this club is included with the purchase of a home or lot in Granby Ranch. This club gives you unlimited skiing for immediate family at SolVista Basin, golf benefits and discounts, downhill bike benefits, and Fraser river fishing benefits. It is like buying everything you might possibly need at once.

Buyers can buy a home here for year-round living or as a second home. The second home choice is perfect for those who work in Denver and like to have a get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Whatever your choice, make sure you use a Colorado buyer’s agent for your home purchase. These agents do not take any listings within their entire office. Therefore able to provide you with unbiased, 100% buyer representation.
