About Lee Reed

My wife and I lived in the Gunnison Country, in this home, for four years before moving. We enjoyed the area and our friends so much, we decided to keep the home after we moved. We take every opportunity to come home and see old friends and revitalize ourselves. Some of our favorite activities are shopping in Gunnison and Crested Butte, hiking, 4-wheeling, enjoying meals as the locally owned restaurants, but mostly, sitting on the front porch or back deck and taking in the creation around us.

Lee Reed purchased this house in 2005

Why Lee Reed chose Southwestern Colorado

We purchased this property as our residence when we lived in Gunnison. When we moved from Gunnison, we loved the friends we made, the house and the area too much to totaly leave, so we kept the house as our second home.

What makes this house unique

When we go to our Gunnison home, we enjoy sipping our morning coffee on the front porch and watch the sunrise and the Tomichi Creek valley wake-up. We enjoy our evening wine on the back deck while watching the sunset and the horses at the Green Mesa Ranch. Between these events, we enjoy hiking and jeeping the Gunnison Country, shopping in Gunnison and Crested Butte, boating on Blue Mesa Reservoir.

We watched our daughter play volleyball for WSCU during the evenings onthe weekends and watched the chipmunks play during the day. Lots of fun . Great kitchen and the stars are incredible outside on the deck .

Beautiful, comfortable home

Thank you! Your home was beautiful and very comfortable. We so appreciate your help in accommodating our needs. It was such a treat to wake up to such a lovely view. We had no problem finding the place, even at midnight. It fit our needs perfectly and we have a beautiful, healthy baby girl to top of the trip!

This house was perfect for our getaway. It was very well stocked with all of our needs and perfectly maintained. The four of us enjoyed front, back, in and out. Tremendous. Would highly recommend for a small or large group. Perfect for all.

Fabulous property , great for big groups , close to trails and other attractions , well maintained .

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property.. spacious , clean , well appointed. We were a group of motorcycle trail riders , we could ride right from the property... Would definitely stay again.. Only improvement we could recommend would be a Large outdoor Hot tub for the old people , we would not mind paying more for that luxury. Would recommend this property to any large group .. Very easy to find and communication with the owner is excellent . The nearest store is in Gunnison about 12 miles away and it is close to the Hot Springs .. a great place to wind down after a long hard day of riding .
