About Mike Price or Carol Wells

We bought the house, barn and 1st 20 acres in 1983. We built the cabin in 1992 to provide accommodations for our son whom was operating an outfitting business, then we retired from our jobs in 1995 and made the permanent move from the Midwest. We purchased the additional land over the next few years and now have just under 80 total acres. We love the peace and quiet our home provides and enjoy living in the Gunnison Valley.

Why Mike Price or Carol Wells chose Southwestern Colorado

My husband was an avid hunter & outdoorsman who travelled to Colorado from the Midwest for many years. He ask me in the early 1980's to come see "Heaven " with him. Who could turn down an offer like that, so we toured all over Colorado and fell in love with Blue Mesa Lake and Sapinero. We have enjoyed our time here and never tired of the wonderful views, wildlife and friends we have made. Everyday is better than the last!

What makes this cabin unique

We have deer & elk who make their homes on our property. There is often black bears and mountain lions who pass through. Blue grouse and all kinds of birds make their homes nearby. The deck on the cabin offers a wonderful place to put your feet up and let the stress disappear and enjoy the view. Just bring your clothes & food, and personal hygiene items, we'll take care of the rest.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there a around the seventh and eighth of October. The three of us felt the accommodations could not have been better or more comfortable. I would look forward to a return trip since we found the Gunnison River easy to get to and the fishing was productive. At the end of the day it was a relief to get back to the cabin and relax. We would do it all over again.

Could not have been better. When we arrived, we were greeted by a buck mule deer and several doe. Also Midnight (the cat) came and greeted us. We missed him the rest of the week.

Cabin is great, Wi Fi worked, and Directv was there so I could watch Fox News.

Hope to make it back at some future time.

Great views. Great property.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property last summer (2015) and couldn't wait to come back again this year. I stayed there for 3 days for the peace, quiet, and some biking up on the Mesa. The cabin has everything that you would need, including Internet and Direct TV, which came in handy when keeping up with the Olympic games. The beds are about the most comfortable I've ever had in a VRBO rental. I will definitely return again if I visit next summer.

Blue Mesa is Beautiful

  • 4 of 5

What a view! Stunning comes to mind. Wildlife is also part of the scenery. My wife and I enjoyed the cabin and all the amenities.

We also enjoyed taking our ATV right out of the driveway and heading up Blue Mesa Road to the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River. Absolutely great ride in the wide open spaces. Highly recommend this property.
