Overview

Gunnison House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Our vacation home is located on the banks of the world renowned Gunnison River known for its blue ribbon trout fishing, kayaking, and rafting. This lodge-like home is your perfect Colorado home base for every summer and winter activity in the Gunnison and Crested Butte region. You simply won't find a better vacation home for the value in a hundred miles.

Here's what our guests have said.

This fully furnished vacation home features 2 large stone fireplaces located on the upper and lower levels; upper and lower level decks overlooking the river; open floor plan living/dining area with beamed cathedral ceilings for your comfort and entertaining; fully equipped/modern kitchen; large den with game, pool table, organ, and piano.

Four furnished bedrooms accommodating 10 people comfortably with 12 possible; 3 bathrooms; laundry room with washer/dryer; cable television, high definition large screen television; and high-speed internet. The home can accommodate two additional guests (for a total of 12) with our roll away beds. There is plenty of room for two vehicles and all your gear in the over-sized two car garage.

Our home is your setting for a perfect vacation getaway. No matter what the occasion, whether serious fishing expeditions, family fishing or snow skiing vacations, golf outings; family reunions; university events; or corporate and private retreats, this home is ideal. We're on-the-water so you can fish right out the back door. You can also launch your own kayaks or tubes on-site as well.

We're located just 3 minutes from the town of Gunnison and the Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport. Just a few miles downstream the Gunnison River flows into Colorado’s largest body of water, known as Blue Mesa Reservoir where sight seeing, boating, sailing, and fishing abound. If you’re inclined for a game of golf you’ll be excited to know that we're actually surrounded by the Dos Rios golf course where the public is welcome.

Fishing – ESPN recently ranked the Gunnison River as 'the best overall freestone trout river in America'. The famous blue ribbon waters of the Gunnison River offer trophy Brown, Rainbow, and Cutthroat trout literally within 50 feet of the house. Within 30 minutes drive you can also be on the Taylor River, East River, Spring Creek, Lake Fork of the Gunnison, or Blue Mesa Reservoir. The possibilities are simply endless. Also, if you happen to stay with us in the September-November timeframe you can catch the Kokanee salmon in the river as they make their way upstream to the Roaring Judy hatchery. Picture yourself spending a day from dawn to dusk with great fishing, rafting, kayaking, hiking, skiing, exploring abandoned goldmines, or just relaxing on the deck and listening to the river.

Skiing – Just a short 30 minutes away is the picturesque town and resort of Crested Butte. Crested Butte features some of the finest snow skiing and snowboarding in the country. Crested Butte is not only known as the 'Last Great Colorado Ski Town' it offers an amazing shopping experience with its prominent Victorian architecture within the ever popular Crested Butte's national historic district. You'll pay a fraction of the cost with us, versus lodging in Crested Butte. In fact, this home would cost upwards of $800/night in Crested Butte.

Hiking and Biking Adventures - The Hartman Rocks, visible from the front yard, provides a high-desert (8,000 ft above sea level) riding/hiking adventure over a 6,000 acre basin. Diverse options include both miles of smooth, sage-lined single track to concentrated slick-rock technical sections. Trails are for bikers, runners, hikers and there are climbing/bouldering areas as well.

We had an amazing time in this home.

What a perfect place for a large extended family to stay. The kitchen was perfect for cooking for a crowd and the layout of the house with the 3 separate outdoor seating areas was great. The house was clean and very homey feeling. Michelle was fantastic to work with and willing to accommodate our needs.

Awesome!!! When our large family group pulled into the driveway of this fabulous home on the Gunnison River, we knew we made a great choice! We all felt that the house is more than the pictures show on this website. It was very clean and comfortable, and VERY well stocked! All four of our families would love to stay at this house again in the future! Our group ranged in age from 7 to 70 and everyone had a blast on this vacation. Thank you for allowing our family to enjoy your beautiful home!
