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
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!!
