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 Gunnison

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.

Great time and place

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful stay! Beautiful big home and fantastic views!! Lots of room for a large family. We were super stocked up on things like towels, toilet paper, ect.. which was really nice because I've had to bring extra things like that to other places we've stayed.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view, and a completely furnished kitchen. Plentiful linens for bedrooms and bath. We enjoyed all the animals, TV, and WIFI. The garage was a plus for hunters to leave their boots and gear. All ten of us voted it a house to return to.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Great stay, we had a relax vacation on our way to return son to college. I would recommend a raft trip down the Taylor river with scenic river tours and some great restaurants in Gunnison. Thanks

Nice big well maintained Home

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home centered between Taylor Park and Crested Butte. We brought 9 ATV's and 10 people it was perfect. No complaints. If we didn't move to a new place every year we would stay there every year.
