You simply won't find a better vacation home for the value in a hundred miles.

Here's what our guests have said.

This fully furnished vacation home features 2 large stone fireplaces located on the upper and lower levels; upper and lower level decks overlooking the river; open floor plan living/dining area with beamed cathedral ceilings for your comfort and entertaining; fully equipped/modern kitchen; large den with game, pool table, organ, and piano.

Four furnished bedrooms accommodating 10 people comfortably with 12 possible; 3 bathrooms; laundry room with washer/dryer; cable television, high definition large screen television; and high-speed internet. 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

  • 5 of 5

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.

As It says! HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. It had everything from great weather, green grass, flowing river to deer in the back yard everyday. We didn't have to bring anything except food and beer! This vacation was the best I have had in years. A great golf course across the road also. Plenty room for our 11 member group. I would highly recommend it for a family get together. Thanks for the great hospitality. You thought of everything for a great time.

Peaceful and relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was such a peace and relaxing break from work.

With a river right out back, piano, billiards table and grill there was nothing else we could ask for. There was something for everyone.
