In a ranching area, on the rustic side, house is in the country animals are part of the landscape, including mules, horses, cows, domestic dogs, deer, elk and on rare occasions mountain lions, bears and moose. Coyotes can be heard at night, fairly often.

Main house and guest house are connected by second floor deck and are situated on 15 acres just off of highway 50 in Parlin Colorado, located 11 miles E of Gunnison, on the confluence of Tomichi Creek and Quartz Creek, 45 minutes from Crested Butte, 30 minutes from Monarch Ski area, 30 minutes from historic Pitkin a popular Victorian mining town, and 30 minutes from Blue Mesa Reservoir.

Custom built Main House:

3000 sq ft. can easily accommodate up 12 people, 10 in private bedrooms and an extra padded convertible sofa that can sleep 2 extra people.

Matching style Guest House:

1200 sq ft. can accommodate up to 4 people in private bedrooms and 3 on large modular sleeper plus sofa in living area.

Main House

Downstairs:

You can enter the house through a mudroom into the open floor plan where the dining room, living room and kitchen are all connected. The dining room has vaulted ceilings, log construction, a table will that seat 12 (we have seated 16) and a beautiful chandelier for ambience. The kitchen is open and has a large serving window where food can be easily gotten piping hot. Also downstairs is two of the bedrooms, one queen and one bunk with a twin over full and each have their own sliding glass doors to the outside. In all, there are 5 sliding glass doors downstairs so that anyone can easily access the outside wrap around deck over-looking the river and pond or to walk, hike, or fish.

Upstairs:

The master bedroom includes a king bed, bath/shower with an over-sized tub, 2 sinks and large drawers for stowing clothes.

Also, upstairs are 2 similar bedrooms across from each other. Both have a twin with trundle that can be converted to a king bed by adding a foam mattress on top of the two. They share a small full bathroom in the hall way in between the two bedrooms.

From the stairs, between the main floor and the upstairs is an exterior exit with access to the hot tub just 20 feet away. The hot tub is on the balcony deck which also leads to the guest house. During the new moon especially the star viewing and milky way are simply amazing.

Guest House:

Can sleep 7; has the large hot tub on the deck, full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathroom with steam shower and an open living/dining room, with pull-out sleeper and a big screen TV. The custom construction is very nice, rustic with log work, wood floors, tile, and wood ceilings.

Guest house and hot tub are situated above a detached garage on the second floor.

Outside:

We have approx. 1/2 a mile of river/creek front alongside the property, a stocked pond for fishing, and a Rainbow play-set. With-in walking distance or a short dirve, many trails are easily accessed to hike or ride in any fashion. After sunset, is the amazing milky way viewing, usually from the hot-tub. Also, what we consider a great addition, lot's of privacy!

Both homes have direct TV, movies options, WI-FI.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Janet,

Thanks for all of your hospitality, it was so nice of you to bring some badly needed things from town, we weren't quite as prepared when we got to your place as we thought we would be. Your home and property are beautiful, we love Tomichi Creek. Hope to see you in the fall for hunting, we will need your guest home too!!

Regards,

Dot and Hank

My wife and I built this home for our family especially so that we could enjoy a country home life style. We moved in with 2 children in 1997 added 2 more children and lived in the home until 2012 after that, we moved in to town to accommodate our very busy children’s sports and social life styles.

We loved the privacy we enjoyed and the beautiful views of the river, ponds and trees from our breakfast counter and the starry milky-way from the hot-tub. in addition, we also enjoyed the short distance to the small intimate town of Gunnison.

Janet Lucas purchased this chateau / country house in 1997

What is unique about this property is how well it can accommodate a large group gathering. It’s not fancy, it’s homey and it’s suited for making memories.

Also,because we prefer country living and the privacy this house affords us, we also enjoy that it is very close to Gunnison and it’s not completely isolated. It is conveniently located to all the things we love to do, including; fishing, hiking, biking, skiing, horseback riding, jeeping and much more. That is what makes this house an ideal place for anyone to enjoy as a country home getaway.

One last thing about Gunnison, if you don't all ready know-as the saying goes- 'It's Always Sunny in Gunny'

What makes this property so unique is that it has nearly everything one could want when they visit Gunnison. If they hunt, they can bring horse trailers and have a place for their horses to board on site. If they have an RV or 4 wheelers, there is plenty of private parking for that too and they can 4 wheel straight away to miles and miles of trails right from the house. If fishing is on their mind, there is a river fed pond and nearly a half mile of private river frontage with a confluence of 2 rivers near the back side of the property. The convenient location to 2 ski areas, a Victorian mining town, Blue Mesa reservoir, Black Canyon National Park, rafting, BLM land, mountain biking trails and so much more, makes this property an outdoor enthusiasts dream.

Very nice grounds and lots of room but some of it needs updating especially the main living room downstairs and the couch in it. Kind of hard for toddlers if they are not used to stairs. cease there are a lot of open stairs in the house. The porch was wonderful and the kids enjoyed the playground and the trampoline. We did not catch any fish in the pond which bummed the boys but they still had fun.

Owner's Response: Hi Steve,
Thanks so much for your review, sorry about the fish, hope you got some out of the river. Just a quick comment, the couch is 2 years old, that was the last thing we purchased before leaving the home as we needed a sleeper sofa for the extra guests, so it’s about as new as they get. Anyway, glad you enjoyed the home and hope to see you in the valley again. Janet & Mark Lucas

Fantastic home with lots to do nearby!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this vacation home as a family in July 2013. Almost a year later still thinking of the fantastic time we had there. It is an absolutely beautiful property, comfortable, great fishing, pond right outside, the kids loved the trampoline, and play set right on the property. Plenty of room for 15+ enjoyed white-water rafting fishing hiking and wildflower Festival in near by Crested Butte. Breathtaking sights all around the Gunnison area. If you are considering this property, don't hesitate go for it, you will not be disappointed.

Perfect for a large group!

  • 5 of 5
what a wonderful location to have a large group come together to enjoy each other and the beautiful surroundings. At first you have to wrap your head around the fact that there is no cell service and the wifi is spotty, but then you settle in and simply enjoy a real vacation! The house truly has everything you could have need of! The beds are comfortable,and the linens are fresh and of good quality. This is also a child's wonderland - animals, play equipment, places to explore, books galore, games, videos and on and on! This is truly the nicest, most enjoyable, place we have ever rented. It felt like home, and we were all sorry to leave!

AWESOME GETAWAY....

  • 5 of 5
This place was absolutely amazing. I want to thank the owners for sharing their wonderful home with us. Our entire crew had a blast and we all slept so comfortable.
The beds were wonderful. We always have problems when we stay away from our home. My husband always complains about the beds... Here there was not one uncomfortable night.
The both homes were very nice and well stocked with everything and anything you would need while away from home. I would recommend this to all my family.
