About Margaret Farrell

We often visited the Granby/Grand Lake area as kids with our families. Later, we enjoyed sharing the area with our own children. They learned to Ski at Silver Creek (now Sol Vista).

Margaret Farrell purchased this condo in 2008

Why Margaret Farrell chose Rocky Mountain National Park

We wanted a quiet ski in ski out condo at a family area. We also desired a unit with summer recreation including lakes, golf courses, and trails nearby. We finally narrowed our selection to those units with a view and a gas fireplace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"My new husband and I had a lovely, relaxing honeymoon in this condo. Even though it wasn't ski season, we still enjoyed visiting Rocky Mountain National Park, Winter Park, and other places. The hot tub was super clean and everything was lovely. We also appreciated all the dishes and kitchen tools kept in the cupboards; the were very handy. "

Convenient Granby Ranch Condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was as advertised and comfortably slept our family of 5. The kitchen and available dishes were convenient for meals and it was just a short drive down the hill to the main lodge at Granby Ranch. Good property if you're planning on spending the time out and about with 2 comfortable bathrooms available and a nice view from the living room. Not the newest property (no widescreen tvs or new beds) but convenient and reasonably priced.

Cozy and close to the mountain

  • 4 of 5

Layout and pictures were all accurate and up to date. Clean and in good shape.

Great for a family or a group of folks who aren't looking for the most modern of modern amenities (i.e., no flatscreen tv, etc.).

The owners were kind and very accommodating with us needing to check in a little early due to needs of child.

Only holding back 5th star because of slight time-warp in decor and amenities (don't want people to be disappointed and not see the property for its own charm).

We WILL be back to this location.

Fun weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The condo was very comfortable and plenty big enough for my husband and I and our two boys. I loved having kitchen supplies to cook, but I did feel bad about not being able to clean up like I would have liked. I looked everywhere for cleaning supplies. We will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Bhanu, We saw the review you made of our condo. Would you please let us know what was wrong with the beds in the 2nd bedroom? If there is a problem we need to correct it right away. Thank you, Margaret & David Farrell Margaret, It was making lot of noise. The other rolling bed was comfortable n good. Thanks for checking, Bhanu Thank you. The bed is brand new, and hasn't settled in. Perhaps that is why it was noisy. We will test it and remedy the noise next time we are up there. Margaret

Fun family time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo with our three young kids. There was plenty of room and the condo had everything we needed. We enjoyed two days of skiing, and the hot tub in the evening was wonderful. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Thanks for a fun weekend!

Home base for exploring Rocky Mountain NP

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took a long-awaited vacation alone without our 4 kids. This condo had everything we wanted. It was quiet with nice views of the valley. We got great breezes of mountain air in the living room and hot tub room which was wonderful for summertime.

The complex was easy to get in and out of and there was no traffic or crowds since it was technically the off-season. We were able to get to the national park in 20 minutes! One day we drove through Estes Park with all the tourists and traffic and were so glad we weren't staying there.

After hiking 7 miles one day, the hot tub was the perfect answer to our sore legs. I think we used the hot tub twice every day, in the morning to loosen up our muscles before hitting the trail and in the evening to relax.

We loved having a full kitchen (with every possible utensil) to cook some meals in and we enjoyed snuggling on the comfy couch under the cozy blankets and watching movies on the DVD player.

A very nice supermarket (including a Redbox kiosk) is across the street from the Granby Ranch entrance and we stopped there almost every day.

Another perk we noticed once we got there was that this condo is one of the easiest to access. Many other condos are up or down flights of stairs. This one is almost on level with the parking lot so we didn't have to lug our bags too far. This would be appreciated by families with young children especially.

My husband liked having the internet access to check up on work and I used it to upload photos from our amazing visit!

We really felt at home here and it made our vacation perfect!
