About Donna

My husband Steve and I have been coming to Gunnison for the past 21 years. This is home to my husband whom has been coming to Gunnison since he was 4 years old. He remembers the cabins along the river Before Blue Mesa Reservoir was created. We lived in Gunnison full time for 10 years! Now we have a part time home that we would love to share with YOU.

Donna purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Donna chose Southwestern Colorado

This property was the Historic Old Red Dolly (for you ol' timers) Located on the Gunnison River with some of the greatest fishing right out your back door. Put in a raft and enjoy the Gunnison River up close and personal. So close to Blue Mesa Reservoir, great boating!

What makes this cottage unique

This is a small private cottage on the Gunnison River with some of the best fishing in your backyard. If you like Lake fishing or Boating, our place is only 10 minutes to Blue Mesa Reservoir ! This home is cozy, quiet, yet close to everything the Gunnison Country has to offer.

We used this property for a week in Oct. 2015, it beat any motel that I could have stayed at in Gunnison. But it's all according to what your looking for, we relaxed after a hard day out in the wild every evening. Built a fire, used the charcoal grill. Every morning there were 3 or more Mule deer venturing around the yard. The place was clean, had plenty of bedding and cook wear. To be honest we didn't want to leave. Thanks Donna for allowing us to rent your place.

River cabin

Wonderful place for our long weekend getaway with our 6 year old son. Lots to do in gunnison and crested butte. Nice river stay to come back to. We BBQ'd and made a camp fire. Loved it!! Would go back for sure.

Great place right on the river

  • 5 of 5

Nice two bedroom place right on the river in a convenient location on the west side of Gunnison. We used the place as our launch point to ride dual sports in the Taylor Crete Butte area. Donna was great to work with and we were happy with cleanliness, wifi, and TV. We used the charcoal grill and fire pit every night. Much better than a hotel for sure. Will use again in the future.

GUNNISON COTTAGE REVIEW

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted to escape the Florida heat so we decided on Gunnison. We couldn't have stayed in a nicer place! It is decorated in a western theme. The Gunnison River is right outside your back door. We are bird watchers/fly fishers and we were treated to a variety of birds everyday. It is just a short ride up the road to Almont and the Gunnison National Forest where we fished and picnicked almost every day. The cottage was clean and the kitchen well appointed. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Gunnison, look no further.

Be patient

  • 3 of 5

The contract we signed agrees to a return of deposit 5 days after our departure. After 35 days, the check was finally written and mailed to us. I asked for the deposit back at least three times before it was sent, and was told on the last occasion it was "sent out yesterday". "Yesterday" ended up being a week later.

By the way, we left the property in very good condition, with everything back in its place, all towels in the bathtub and trash bagged up and ready to toss out. Very disappointing.

Nice little place for the price

  • 3 of 5

The interior of the house was done very nicely in Western style decor. We found the rooms to be spacious and comfortable. The house is right on the river which was very relaxing. There is a large sliding glass door which opens out to the river side of the house so you can view the river from the living area. The property is located off the main road and is private. This is actually a part of a larger house, but is closed off from the other portion. We did not encounter the inhabitants of the other portion of the house.

We had a deer come through the property every morning. Birds were everywhere around the property.

The lawn could use some upkeep.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thanks for the feedback. We did think our gardener should trim a bit more than he does; However, we like to leave the grass a bit taller on east side of the property because the deer like to come through and eat!
