About the property

Welcome to the Mountain House at Granby Ranch! Completed in December 2014, this new 2,974 square foot 5br/3.5 bath home is nestled on the east mountain of Ski Granby Ranch. This true ski-in ski-out home is located directly on the main ski hill accessing the Quick Draw Express chairlift. One of the only houses in the rental program with ski-in/ski-out access to the main base area meaning easier access to ski rentals, lift tickets, ski school, Granby Ranch Grill, and the base lodge and its amenities.

The Mountain House was designed and furnished with vacationers in mind. With 5 bedrooms and the capacity to sleep 18, the house is perfect for multiple families, extended family vacations, or for families that like to spread out and enjoy extra space. The house is beautifully decorated with comfortable furniture, luxurious linens and towels, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless appliances, hardwood floors, dining table that extends to seat 12, three separate living levels for privacy and space, office area in the loft, 4 flat screen TVs, a gas fireplace, game table with pool/air hockey, Xbox One and games, train table and accessories, 2 pack and play portable cribs, 2 high chairs, potty seats and stools for the bathrooms, outdoor deck with gas grill, books, movies, games, and toys. There is a heated, locked ski valet on the front porch for ski/winter equipment. The views of the mountains are spectacular from every side of the house. As guests of the Mountain House you will also have access to Ranch Hall Club House at the base of Granby Ranch. There you can enjoy an outdoor heated pool and hot tub, indoor fitness center, foosball, ping-pong, and a seating area with couches, chairs, and TV along with books and games.

Ski Granby Ranch is the perfect ski resort specializing in families learning to ski and offers short lift lines, non-crowded runs, and peace of mind that your children are always close by, yet big enough to have all types of ski terrain and attract mountain bike national events. Ski Granby Ranch offers night skiing most Friday and Saturday nights.

Granby Ranch not only offers exceptional winter activities. Being a year round resort, it offers golfing at Headwaters Golf Course with 18 holes incorporating mountains, wetlands, trees and meadows. Adjacent to the golf course, Granby Ranch offers private fly fishing access or you can enjoy Colorado catch and release fishing just a few miles up the Fraser River. During the summer, Granby Ranch turns into a mountain biking mecca, with trails for beginner, intermediate, and advanced downhill mountain bikers with bike rental on property.

Outside of the many resort amenities you are only 15 minutes to the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and Y Camp of the Rockies with horseback riding and zip line. Grand Lake to the north is the snowmobiling capital of Colorado. Granby Ranch is close to white water rafting, kayaking and fishing on the Upper Colorado River and Winter Park is 20 minutes away for big mountain skiing, summer concerts and craft fairs.

About The Fiss Family

Originally from St. Louis, MO and Grand Rapids, MI we found our way out to Colorado 20+ years ago. We fell in love with the mountains and all it has to offer. After having 4 kids we continued to travel to the mountains but soon discovered it wasn't as easy backpacking or sleeping in our tent anymore. So after renting houses and condos for several years we decided to purchase a property and make it comfortable not only for our family, but also for yours. We understand the joys and challenges that come with traveling with little ones. We also collected information regarding what we liked and disliked in our rental experiences when we designed our dream ski-in/ski-out mountain home.

The Fiss Family purchased this house in 2014

Why The Fiss Family chose Rocky Mountain National Park

Location, location, location. Granby Ranch is the perfect fit for our family with activities available for all ages and all seasons. We love the proximity to Winter Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Grand Lake. We enjoy skiing and with little ones in tow this was the closest house on the main lift nearest the base lodge, ski school, rental shop, and bar/restaurant. The five bedrooms and sleeping arrangements make it possible for us to bring up plenty of extended family and friends.

What makes this house unique

To our knowledge the Mountain House is the closest ski-in/ski-out house to the main base area in the current rental program. There are many activities for non-skiers as well. There's something for everyone at the Mountain House!

A great place and a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a few families gathering in this house over last weekend. Everyone just loved it. It is perfect for a large group of families. It has everything prepared for guests. The location and its view couldn't be better. It is easy to access to Granby area and rock mountain national park. We took the lift to the top of hill and walked a few hours. Lake Granby and Grand Lake are beautiful. The house has a large dinning room. Easily to cook and BBQ. We had a great time. The owner Jaci was wonderful. She communicated with me closely and made sure we got everything we needed. Thank you Jaci.

We look forward to coming back again.

Wonderful family focused relaxing atmosphere!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eleven had a wonderful vacation week at The Mountain House! The younger ones enjoyed the games and air hockey/pool table on the lower level while the adults gathered on the main level enjoying the deck and mountain views. My daughter in law and three granddaughters were enthralled with their first time experiencing the Rocky Mountains and the location of the house was very central to hiking, swimming, visiting Granby, Winter Park, Lake Granby, Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National park. A trip to The Waterfall at Snow Mountain Ranch was a highlight. The house is well designed for optimal family activities while providing quiet nooks for reading or relaxing--especially the front porch with the view of aspen trees dancing in cool breezes. Mealtimes were so easy with the central island and the well equipped kitchen. We felt right at home when we first walked in the door and look forward to booking The Mountain House again should we decide to do a family ski trip next winter. We have stayed in three other houses in Granby Ranch but The Mountain House was the most comfortable and gave us the best family vacation experience!!

Great family ski home!

  • 5 of 5

The large home was amazing for our two families who did a Spring Break ski trip. We were able to just walk onto the ski slope and then ski to the home when finished. The home was large and well furnished and had all the amenities for the children of all ages. The owners were great to work with! Highly recommend this house to any family or families on a vacation needing lots of space.

I wrote a review but evidently it didn't get thru. We had a wonderful stay at your home. In the past years we have stayed in at least six rental homes and yours was the best. If things work out we might try to stay at your place again. Thank you for letting us stay there.
