This is a charming, fully equipped home,two queen bedrooms, two full baths, and a sleeping loft (ladder access). Just bring your clothes, fishing rod and expectations, you won't be disappointed. Located within sight of the Gunnison National Forest and West Elk Wilderness. Close enough to town to be convenient but far enough out to give you the peace you deserve.
Summer gives you hiking, biking and wildflowers, fall for hunting and winter for skiing and Snowmobiling. Gunnison has it all, except for the crowds. This is what a mountain vacation is supposed to be about! We live on the same piece of property (in a separate house, of course) and are happy to be as much a part of your visit, or as little, as you want. If it's advice on what pass to ride on your motorcycle,or which fly to use, just ask. This is the vacation you will talk about!
Please note, we DO NOT allow smoking OF ANY KIND on the property, this includes marijuana, whether medicinal or recreational.

The property title says it all - Charming Duckpond Cottage! This is a clean, well-equipped, cozy cottage with a great gas fireplace, comfortable furniture, and a comfortable bed (slept in master). The cottage is set back from the main house and private. Access is via an electric gate, for which you get your own remote. The ducks, geese, and Alpacas on the property were great entertainment and were quiet; no early morning wake up calls. Doug was a gracious host (Lee was out of town) and stopped by to make sure everything was in order and to give us suggestions for places to visit and restaurants. Garlic Mike's is just down the road towards town and lived up to its excellent on-line reviews. Wonderful food and great service. We would definitely stay here again when in Gunnison. Thanks Doug!
We had a wonderful week's stay in Gunnison. The cottage had all the amenities you could have asked for. By the time we got all of our personal items put away, we felt like we were home. The property was clean and very well maintained.
The owners, Doug and Lee were extremely helpful. If you needed information regarding the area, or if you just wanted to visit with them, they were there to help.
We plan on going back to the area again next year. Thanks to Doug and Lee for providing such a lovely home, so we could really have a fun and a relaxing vacation. - The Baker's
We are just finishing up our month in Gunnison. I cannot say enough nice things about our house and the owners, Doug and Lee. The house was very clean on arrival and everything we needed was furnished. We had a great time watching the ducks on the pond. The hiking and wildflowers here in July are fantastic. We enjoyed our time here so much that we have already reserved the house for next July.
Thank you to Lee and Doug for a memorable stay and their wonderful hospitality. The cottage is perfect, nicely decorated and homely,in a tranquil setting, yet close to Gunnison and in a great position to explore the area. We hope to return again!
My Dad and I planned a fishing trip to the Gunnison area and picked the perfect house and location. This house is right in the middle of three trout fishing rivers and surrounded by numerous streams and creeks. In addition, the house has all the amenities imaginable, and is very clean. We will hope to return.
We just returned to Texas from ten
days in Gunnison. The house is
terrific. Convenient to hiking, rafting,
fishing, and the surrounding towns.
Comfortable and pleasant. Doug and
Lee are accomodating and never
intrusive. The sleeping loft is large,
the bedrooms small and adequate.
The best Colorado rental we've had
in twenty years.
We are located 3 miles north of Gunnison, right off of Highway 135. Easy access to Crested Butte, Almont, Taylor Canyon and Gunnison.
There is a gate across our driveway, please contact us prior to arrival for entry instructions.
