About Stan and Pam Hegener

We first found Crested Butte and Gunnison almost 35 years ago and brought our kids here to learn to ski. After several years absence we returned to the area and experienced the four seasons and decided we needed a place for our kids to come with their kids to enjoy the great outdoors!

Stan and Pam Hegener purchased this house in 2014

Why Stan and Pam Hegener chose Southwestern Colorado

When you drive up you will know why we fell in love with the property. You can see from the pictures its unique style and the amenities it has to offer. A 40 acre horse property with 360 views of the mountains and just 7 minutes from town and 20 minutes from Crested Butte. Year around activities and prefect temperatures!

What makes this house unique

Words can't describe how the setting and uniqueness of this property has made it the perfect second home and one that we feel our guests will enjoy as well.

best yet

  • 5 of 5

My family has been going to Colorado once a year for over 25 years. This is the best cabin we have stayed in yet.

When we first arrived, we all spent the first hour going from room to room in awe.

It's just a remarkable property.

If you are traveling with a family or group of friends, look no farther. It doesn't disappoint. You will feel comfortable here

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This is a unique and well thought out property. To give you an idea of the layout, the "old cabin" is one side of the structure and the "new cabin" is on the other side, connected by the dog trot dining area. Out back is the cook shack and fire pit, out front is a huge parking area and pastures with several horses, including a nice buckskin mare that my 11 year old daughter loved. The old cabin is unbelievably cool. Perfectly restored, it is like a comfortable museum. A very private set up for one couple, worked great for my parents with our family on the new side. I honestly spent a couple hours wandering around it and kept discovering new details, just a wonderful spot in this world. The new cabin is very well done also, big views, with 2 bedrooms both with baths down and a loft that is maybe the nicest room in the house. There are 4 private patio/decks, each with a different view and sun/shade time. The cook shack and firepit are equally wonderful, a great spot for evening pre-dinner cocktails! The entire property is remarkably great. We have stayed in VRBOs throughout Colorado and the country and this is one of the very best. Elizabeth, the caretaker, met us and went through the entire property, her husband helped restore the old cabin. Her enthusiasm for Gunnison and the cabin was infectious. The only (very minor) complaints: The new cabin bedrooms and baths are small and one doesn't have a closet; no shampoo/conditioner provided (every VRBO at this price point provides, but not a big deal); no kindling for the fire pit.

Things to do in the area if you want to see it but maybe have people that can't hike/float/bike: Float/Dine at Garlic Mikes (we had age ranges from 75 to 9 and it was a huge hit...take a cooler with your favorite can drinks, very mild float and short walk to a nice dinner); drive Ohio Creek road to Kebler pass and stop for the Castle Rocks view at the rock slide, easy drive and beautiful views and aspen forest; drive/hike/fish Cement Creek road near Crested Butte, light 4WD recommended, but not bad and really beautiful small creek....just keep going!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments, we really appreciate them and are glad you enjoyed your visit. There is a lot of history in the miners cabin! We appreciate your comment about the shampoo and conditioner, we provided the bars of soap but figured most folks like their own shampoo and conditioner and may not have a use for ours. We can certainly provide some in the Laundry room for those that don't mind a generic brand. Also there are old cedar shingles tucked back behind the wood pile under the aspen, we usually break them up into starter wood, as they light with a match. Maybe they did get used, I will have Dave check this week. I know the horses seem to love the attention from all the guests. Thanks again, hope to see you back! Sincerely, Stan and Pam

The attention to detail is unbelievable

  • 5 of 5

This by far has been the best place we have stayed. It has everything plus whatever you can think of. It has loads of parking for the trailers. And the view just doesn’t get any better. The construction is out of this world. Extra tall windows and sliding door. They truly went above and beyond when they put this wonderful cabin together. Yes we will be back as it was very hard to leave. SEE YA Next Year.

Spectacular House!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most amazing house we have stayed at in Colorado! Loved all the little details and especially all the reclaimed wood. It is just beautiful!

The location was perfect for us. We were able to ride our ATV's directly from the house to the trails that are west and north of the house, very cool. We had never been on those trails before. We also went to Crested Butte, and rode Pearl Pass and the Devil's Punch bowl. We had never ridden those trails either.

The weather was gorgeous and so was the view from the house. We spent our evening roasting marshmallows and cooking in the outdoor kitchen.

Elizabeth, the property manager, was truly amazing! She was so nice and helpful, and always checked with us to make sure everything was going okay.

It was a wonderful vacation, and I would recommend this house to anyone, whether you enjoy riding 4 wheelers or just want to chill. Thank you for letting us stay at your fabulous property!!

Perfect for our group of seven

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and perfectly located for everything our group of seven wanted to do. House was equipped with all we needed. Access to miles of ATV trails from the house, easy drive to fishing, etc. Would definitely stay again.

The Wiley Spur Ranch provides the perfect family or couples get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This property will take your breath away, with beautiful views of the mountains AND every modern amenity you could ever dream of. Our family gathered here for a reunion and it was unanimous that we all loved this house and location, and certainly hope to return next year. The local contact person, along with a property caretaker, were only a phone call away and were both extremely helpful and great resources for things to do in Gunnison and Crested Butte. From the luxurious bedding to the rustic, yet elegant furnishings and interior design, this is a first class property that you will not want to leave! Thank you Stan for everything -- The Millers, Memphis, TN
