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.

About Janet Lucas

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

Why Janet Lucas chose Gunnison

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 chateau / country house unique

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.

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

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay while cat skiing in Monarch. We loved the hot tub, pool table, and ping pong table. The rec room was great and the sound of the pool table was well insulated from the rest of the guest house. Really nice place.

2014 Christmas Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place for a large family. This location provided everything - space, a home environment, ability to cook meals, laundry, activities, personal hospitality, etc. Thank you to the Lucas family for sharing this amazing location. There were 19 of us total and we had an amazing time with plenty of room for all of us, we were able to share meals as a family, yet able to disperse for down time when needed. Skiing at Monarch was awesome with 16 inches of fresh snow on Monday the 22nd, this place provided a great location to access Monarch and great access to Gunnison for shopping and breakfast at the "W" cafe - awesome place. THANK YOU again for our amazing Christmas break - we hope to use again in the future.

What a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house to hold a wedding on the property and it was so much more then we could have ever imagined. The house was beautifully furnished and had everything you could possibly need. The property is absolutely stunning and provided us with the most beautiful pictures! Janet was amazing and would frequently ask if I needed help with any of the details. All of our guest said that this place is like what you see in magazines. My husband and I made the best possible choice for our special day.

Thanks again, Janet, Mark and the Lucas Girls

Fabulous Property!!

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Janet, We cannot say enough about your beautiful property. It was everything we had hoped for and we hope to return for another great time with our family. There were 13 of us and we had plenty of comfortable beds and dining space. Your kitchen is so well stocked.......puts mine to shame! The kids loved the waterfall, fishing, feeding carrots to the horses, the playground equipment and the trampoline. Thanks for all of your hard work and for the peaceful vacation you offer!
