This rental has 280 private acres and is located in Grand County near the town of Granby, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains. This property was one of the first ski areas in Colorado, known as Frosty Basin, operating for two years in the 1950s, and now, it's surrounded by world-class ski resorts, such as Winter Park, Steamboat Springs, Granby Ranch, and no less than five cross-country parks. The nearby Rocky Mountain National Park is full of towering mountains, verdant forests, secluded lakes, tundra, wildflowers, and abundant wildlife. Trail Ridge Road is the highest paved road in the country, giving glampers an opportunity to experience breathtaking views from the top. There are massive recreational opportunities on the property, in the Park, in the Arapaho National Recreation area, on Lake Granby, and on Grand Lake.

Nearby Longs Peak is the highest peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, and Trail Ridge Road offers a paved pass from the town of Grand Lake to the town of Estes Park and then the front range near Boulder Colorado. The wildlife is spectacular in this entire region including deer, elk, raptors, bears and all of the Rocky Mountain region fauna. Both Bald and Golden eagles routinely visit and occasionally nest on the property. Numerous other raptors and owls also call this home.

Arapaho, Routt, Medicine Bow, and Roosevelt National Forests contain millions of acres for guests' recreation, including hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and horseback riding. In the winter, in addition to skiing, glampers can get out their snowshoes, backcountry skis, snow bikes, and sleds to explore this winter wonderland.

The nearest commercial airports are Steamboat Springs and Denver International. Small airports are located in Granby and Kremmling.

In addition to hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, boarding, ATV-ing, and horseback riding, glampers can arrange to try their luck at fly fishing. With thousands of miles of streams, rivers, and acres of lakes and reservoirs, Grand County is one of the best fishing areas in the world. Fishing also is available to glampers on a reduced fee basis at the private fly water known as Fraser River Ranch, which is just a half mile away. This river is a world-class fly fishery, and there are spawning beds creating by the heavy runoff, maintaining a healthy environment and ample bug life for strong trout. Fraser River Ranch also offers a stocked pond.

There are trails up and down the mountainside with incredible views while mountain biking or ATV riding. For experienced bikers, the ranch has a trail system that glampers can easily access. Grand County has some of the best mountain biking in Colorado. Winter Park has over 6000 miles of trails, giving it the nickname "Mountain Bike Capital, USA." ATVs are also allowed, and a trail map is provided to glampers, although ATVs themselves are not made available by the accommodation. This area is the perfect place to explore in an ATV.
