The home can accommodate two additional guests (for a total of 12) with our roll away beds. There is plenty of room for two vehicles and all your gear in the over-sized two car garage.
Our home is your setting for a perfect vacation getaway. No matter what the occasion, whether serious fishing expeditions, family fishing or snow skiing vacations, golf outings; family reunions; university events; or corporate and private retreats, this home is ideal. We're on-the-water so you can fish right out the back door. You can also launch your own kayaks or tubes on-site as well.
We're located just 3 minutes from the town of Gunnison and the Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport. Just a few miles downstream the Gunnison River flows into Colorado’s largest body of water, known as Blue Mesa Reservoir where sight seeing, boating, sailing, and fishing abound. If you’re inclined for a game of golf you’ll be excited to know that we're actually surrounded by the Dos Rios golf course where the public is welcome.
Fishing – ESPN recently ranked the Gunnison River as 'the best overall freestone trout river in America'. The famous blue ribbon waters of the Gunnison River offer trophy Brown, Rainbow, and Cutthroat trout literally within 50 feet of the house. Within 30 minutes drive you can also be on the Taylor River, East River, Spring Creek, Lake Fork of the Gunnison, or Blue Mesa Reservoir. The possibilities are simply endless. Also, if you happen to stay with us in the September-November timeframe you can catch the Kokanee salmon in the river as they make their way upstream to the Roaring Judy hatchery. Picture yourself spending a day from dawn to dusk with great fishing, rafting, kayaking, hiking, skiing, exploring abandoned goldmines, or just relaxing on the deck and listening to the river.
Skiing – Just a short 30 minutes away is the picturesque town and resort of Crested Butte. Crested Butte features some of the finest snow skiing and snowboarding in the country. Crested Butte is not only known as the 'Last Great Colorado Ski Town' it offers an amazing shopping experience with its prominent Victorian architecture within the ever popular Crested Butte's national historic district. You'll pay a fraction of the cost with us, versus lodging in Crested Butte. In fact, this home would cost upwards of $800/night in Crested Butte.
Hiking and Biking Adventures - The Hartman Rocks, visible from the front yard, provides a high-desert (8,000 ft above sea level) riding/hiking adventure over a 6,000 acre basin. Diverse options include both miles of smooth, sage-lined single track to concentrated slick-rock technical sections. Trails are for bikers, runners, hikers and there are climbing/bouldering areas as well.

Our Family Christmas Vacation
Our first family vacation was amazing. Outside of my getting sick I would have to say our overall stay here at the Gunnison River Lodge was amazing. The homeowner and the care takers were extremely helpful and accommodating and not to mention very patient with all of our questions. The view was incredible, the lodge was very cozy and warm. We most definitely will tell all of our friends and have them tell their friends. On Monday the day we left Christmas Day it looked like winter wonderland out front of the house... it was absolutely breath taking. Thank you all for sharing your beautiful lodge with us, allowing us to create such wonderful memories.
Beth and I so loved helping make your Christmas a special experience - we hope our paths cross again one day.
Couldn’t ask for a better location! Loved it! We will be back.
Wonderful rental, Beautiful and relaxing!
Thank you Jeff & Beth!
We totally enjoyed our days there at the Gunnison River Lodge.
Very clean and comfortable and well stocked for everything or anything we could have needed.
We all agreed that we will be booking another trip next April and my friends made a point that I need to book that trip EARLY so we can come back.
John was very nice and we knew he was there if we would have needed anything but turns out we did not.
The lodge was a great experience! It is a beautiful property with plenty of amenities and room for all. The owners did a great job with communication and ensuring that everything was going well. We would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful & relaxing setting right on the Gunnison
We had a fantastic week at the Gunnison River Lodge. It has great space inside and outside. I was surprised to find so much room to relax. We most enjoyed sitting on the deck with a glass of wine or beer while watching the river roll by. The home had every thing we needed and much more. With 5 bedrooms and 3 baths, we'll be back with family and friends. Thank you Jeff and Beth for sharing your wonderful home in the mountains with us.
Property was great.
Property was great. The only issue we had was with the chimney and heat, but John came over the next day and helped figure out a solution. Owners are very honest and respectable. If we are ever in the Colorado area again, we will defiantly come back.
It was great having your family for the holidays! We were able to get the lower level thermostat issue fixed the next day - we apologize for that. Your family was so gracious.
We are so happy you had a great family getaway. Have a blessed 2018!
