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 Granby

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!

We love this Granby ski in ski out

  • 5 of 5

What can we say...this is our third year to stay at this ski in - ski out Granby Ranch home for our annual ski trip. Our family of 13 enjoys the location, cleanliness, easy and direct access to skiing, large family dining table that seats all of us, plenty of towels (even pool towels), table service for 16+, high end appliances, two family gathering areas, board games and pool/foosball table, the base area pool/hot tub, and especially the responsive and helpful owners. An all around positive experience year after year.

Amazing Ski Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We took a total of 11 people(3 families) to stay in the Mountain House. It is right on a green slope on the mountain. The house has a great layout and everyone was extremely comfortable. We couldn't have asked for anything better! Thanks again so much for a fabulous week!

N/A - We did not actually stay at the property

  • 5 of 5

The rating here is for the property owners. The Fiss family was extremely helpful in our situation. We had paid extra for this ski in/out property and due to a terrible snow season, the run that the property is located on was not even open. We pleaded for an exception to the normal cancellation policy as we would not be able to do much skiing and they were amazing! They graciously allowed us to work something out with them that was good for all parties involved. I would HIGHLY recommend this property due to the additional peace of mind of being able to work with owners that truly care about their renters and will do whatever it takes to ensure a great experience. I cannot say enough about how wonderful they were to us.

Excellent ski-in/ski-out property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 14 staying at this property and had plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen and house was well stocked and clean. The property had a Christmas tree up as well as decorations which we thought was a nice touch. The kids really enjoyed the air hockey table and xbox. We loved having the ski valet for all our equipment and having access to the Quick Draw lift was awesome we literally could ski from the door. My only suggestion would be to convert 1 of the kids rooms into an adult room with a queen or king bed. We had 4 adult couples so one couple was stuck with bunk beds. We would rent this property again but bring air mattresses as pull outs are never comfortable. The Fiss family has done an excellent job with this property and Jaci was very quick to answer my questions. I hope we get to stay in this property next year. Thanks for sharing your home!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

The comfort of this home made our fist experience in Granby one that will never be forgotten. The Christmas tree added the perfect touch for our stay in December. The basement fulfilled our late night entertainment needs. We will come back soon.
