GET AWAY FROM IT ALL! PLAY ON 38 ACRES ON THE GUNNISON RIVER!!

Gunnison House Rental Photos and Description

Working Ranch, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Listen to the rushing waters of the Gunnison River as you relax on the wraparound porch and watch the horses in the meadows at Eagle River Ranch. 500 feet of private fishing on gold medal waters is just down the bank, and exploring the 38 acre ranch and the sustainable greenhouse is on the “to do” list but you are here to RELAX! You slowly rock in your custom handmade porch swing as you decide that your next adventure will be the short but challenging hike to 'Forgiveness Rock'. Your dog eagerly awaits your next move!

Come for the hikes, the horse watching, the fishing, the birding and the exploring but know you will be undisturbed by “civilization” at our exclusive end-of-the-road getaway. Our chefs kitchen opens onto the living room and the dining area so you can enjoy your family as you prepare meals and picnics for the great picnic table on the back deck or in one of our chairs down by the river. As you wander into the house, you take in the rustic-chic furnishings and the sense of comfort and attention given to your “best vacation experience ever” in every room. Your master bedroom, with a king bed as well as a separate twin, overlooks the river from it's own private covered porch as well as a master bath with a separate jacuzzi bathtub and shower. You are amazed at the space to spread out in! The two bedrooms upstairs share their well appointed bathroom with a combined shower/tub. The large den downstairs has a queen sleeper sofa and the lovely 'guest' half bath just inside the large formal entryway is nearby. Even in a large group, there are so many private places to get away all by yourself! You notice the native American artifacts in the entry and it reminds you that you are on an ancient native american camping sight. You know you can plan a private session with one of the owners who is a Spiritual Psychologist and will take visitors on their own 'Spirit Quests' on horseback or can provide a family 'horse experience' for your whole group. You decide to take advantage of these options later in the week. The possibilities are endless. You want to take that hike, but you decide to settle back into one of those comfortable 'Mountain Time Chairs' (built by the other owner!) on the porch and take in the beautiful 'dragon hills' that surround your own private valley.

About Nancy Klifman

We own Red Mountain Furniture and manufacture lMountain Time Chairs. Nancy has an M.A. in Spiritual Psychology and is skilled in Equine Somatic Psychotherapy. We have four horses, three dogs, 7 chickens and hundreds of friends!

Nancy Klifman purchased this house in 2006

Why Nancy Klifman chose Gunnison

My first visit to this area was in the early 60's with my mother and father. My husband, Gary's family homesteaded in the area in the late 1800's, before his branch broke off and moved to California. We find the Gunnison Valley breathtaking every day. Our 'hideaway' was chosen because of it's end of the road location, on the Gunnison river, 10 minutes from Gunnison and 20 minutes from Crested Butte. Gary loves to fish and I love to ride horses so it is a place that meets our needs for recreation. When you are here you feel removed from the everyday world. Because we border the national forest we are the 'buffer' for the animals that live there. The land here feels sacred and simply magnificent.

What makes this house unique

We are a large home at the end of a bumpy road. No-one just 'stops by' at Eagle River Ranch. There is a nice fishing-camp resort as you turn off of highway 135 (Lost Canyon Resort) that can accommodate more family or friends if you need additional room. We have two restaurants within two miles of us that are open in the summers, one that is open in the winter. You can launch a raft on the bank below our house or arrange to be picked up for a private raft adventure. We are a working 'gentlemans' ranch with horses and chickens but little else going on to disturb the peace and quiet here. The owners live onsite and are available to help in any way, our aim is for our guests to have the BEST VACATION EVER!

Perfect Location and Wonderful Owners!

  • 5 of 5
We have a group of friends from our college days that like to get together every couple of years and Eagle River Ranch was the perfect place for our 2014 reunion! We all like to fly fish and this house is in the center of it all! Short drive to the Taylor Res & River, East River and of course you are right on the Gunnison River. So much access and so little time! We also spent a day on the beautiful Blue Mesa Reservoir and caught enough Kokanee salmon to feed everyone. Our group of 8 never even made it out to a restaurant because we had so much fun taking turns cooking in the well appointed kitchen and great outdoor grill. I cannot say enough great things about this house and the owners. Nancy and Gary were so helpful and welcoming to our group and our furbabies. We had 2 dogs that had a blast running around with their dogs. Thank you Gary and Nancy for being so nice - it made the whole experience that much better. Eagle River Ranch is truly a magical place! We had a wonderful vacation and made memories that we will cherish forever!

Owner's Response: Thank you! When Gary and I began this journey we wondered what it would be like to have "strangers" in our home. Well, what we found out was we got to have wonderful people happily playing in our own back yard! It has been a blast and we love sharing our "piece of paradise". Thank you for choosing Eagle River Ranch and for giving us the tremendous feedback on our property. We are always looking for ways to improve your time with us!

Just what the Doctor Ordered

  • 5 of 5
The home is just as beautiful as the pictures show, but it is the outside and surroundings that make this place 'just what the doctor ordered'. Not only did Nancy and Gary open up their home, but they shared their ranch and animals with us a well. We had a houseful, but there was still lots of room to space out and relax. The back porch offers lots of comfort and seating, as well as the refreshing Gunnison River rushing by. If you want to get closer, just stroll to another seating area or down to the river to the fire pit to toast some marshmallows! The front porch has the wonderful chairs Gary makes at Red Mountain Furniture and a beautiful swing. My and my granddaughter's favorite spot was the day bed and cowgirl bathtub on the side porch. There are many other great things about this property and two of them are Nancy and Gary - they will make sure you have everthing you need - THANKS for a great time in a great place!

Amazing home and owners

  • 5 of 5
We travel to Colorado in the summer around the Gunnison area every year for 4-wheeling and hiking. This home and location was amazing, close to everything. Crested Butte, Gunnison, Taylor Lake and Pitkin. The owners were so accomodating to all our needs. We showed up with trucks and 4-wheelers. There was plenty of room for parking which was important for us. The house was amazing, had in it everything you need to travel comfortably away from home. And the owners made sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend this home for any group of people.

Wonderful Vacation and Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5
We have never done a VRBO rental before, but after a pleasant process, will do so in the future. The owners were most gracious, the location perfect, and the house as advertised. I was initially drawn to the proximity of the water and it did not disappoint, the river was spectacular. The house itself was beautifully decorated, but comfortable nonetheless. We brought our dog along and she was well received and enjoyed the owners' menagerie of animals. On behalf of my family, Thank You Nancy and Gary!!

Our family could not have been more comfortable and happy anywhere else. This ranch was perfect. The house layout, the kitchen (I love to cook and everything I needed was here), the fire pit and seating area by the river (for the cigar smokers, far enough away I couldn't smell them!), the gardens around the house (edible), the horses (so magnificent), good wi-fi (kept teens happy), dogs and cats (BIG animal lovers we are), the hiking (right out your door), the location (easy to get to everything, little bit of a bumpy ride up and down the hill to the house but just part of the adventure) - and the owners: Nancy and I worked together many years ago and this ended up being a reunion of sorts. It was just such a great week! I could go on and on....

Wisconsin Family Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week's vacation in the beautiful Gunnison/Crested Butte area. This property is BEAUTIFUL and Nancy and Gary are fantastic hosts. The house was perfect for our family of 6 that includes kids ranging from 13-25! We had a wonderful time reconnecting over family games, great meals, and the Packer game! The location allowed us to ski both Monarch and Crested Butte with ease. Our daughter ( who ranch-sits for Klifmans) also took us on a hike through the gorgeous canyon that rests on the property. This home is very conducive to large family gatherings, is well stocked, and beautifully decorated. We can't thank the Klifmans enough for their generous hospitality in sharing their lovely property with us. We hope to return soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great review. Having your family here was a pleasure. Your Wisconsin roots made our sub zero temperatures more palatable that cold, cold week. I was impressed that you all hiked! We appreciate your daughter and her caretaking more than we can say! Come back soon, summer is amazing here.
