Gunnison house description

Listen to the rushing waters of the Gunnison River as you relax on the wraparound porch and watch the horses in the meadows at Eagle River Ranch. 500 feet of private fishing on gold medal waters is just down the bank, and exploring the 38 acre ranch and the sustainable greenhouse is on the “to do” list but you are here to RELAX! You slowly rock in your custom handmade porch swing as you decide that your next adventure will be the short but challenging hike to 'Forgiveness Rock'. Your dog eagerly awaits your next move!
Come for the hikes, the horse watching, the fishing, the birding and the exploring but know you will be undisturbed by “civilization” at our exclusive end-of-the-road getaway. Our chefs kitchen opens onto the living room and the dining area so you can enjoy your family as you prepare meals and picnics for the great picnic table on the back deck or in one of our chairs down by the river. As you wander into the house, you take in the rustic-chic furnishings and the sense of comfort and attention given to your “best vacation experience ever” in every room. Your master bedroom, with a king bed as well as a separate twin, overlooks the river from it's own private covered porch as well as a master bath with a separate jacuzzi bathtub and shower. You are amazed at the space to spread out in! The two bedrooms upstairs share their well appointed bathroom with a combined shower/tub. The large den downstairs has a queen sleeper sofa and the lovely 'guest' half bath just inside the large formal entryway is nearby. Even in a large group, there are so many private places to get away all by yourself! You notice the native American artifacts in the entry and it reminds you that you are on an ancient native american camping sight. You know you can plan a private session with one of the owners who is a Spiritual Psychologist and will take visitors on their own 'Spirit Quests' on horseback or can provide a family 'horse experience' for your whole group. You decide to take advantage of these options later in the week. The possibilities are endless. You want to take that hike, but you decide to settle back into one of those comfortable 'Mountain Time Chairs' (built by the other owner!) on the porch and take in the beautiful 'dragon hills' that surround your own private valley.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: We own Red Mountain Furniture and manufacture lMountain Time Chairs. Nancy has an M.A. in Spiritual Psychology and is skilled in Equine Somatic Psychotherapy. We have four horses, three dogs, 7 chickens and hundreds of friends!

              Why the Owner Chose Gunnison:
              My first visit to this area was in the early 60's with my mother and father. My husband, Gary's family homesteaded in the area in the late 1800's, before his branch broke off and moved to California. We find the Gunnison Valley breathtaking every day. Our 'hideaway' was chosen because of it's end of the road location, on the Gunnison river, 10 minutes from Gunnison and 20 minutes from Crested Butte. Gary loves to fish and I love to ride horses so it is a place that meets our needs for recreation. When you are here you feel removed from the everyday world. Because we border the national forest we are the 'buffer' for the animals that live there. The land here feels sacred and simply magnificent.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We are a large home at the end of a bumpy road. No-one just 'stops by' at Eagle River Ranch. There is a nice fishing-camp resort as you turn off of highway 135 (Lost Canyon Resort) that can accommodate more family or friends if you need additional room. We have two restaurants within two miles of us that are open in the summers, one that is open in the winter. You can launch a raft on the bank below our house or arrange to be picked up for a private raft adventure. We are a working 'gentlemans' ranch with horses and chickens but little else going on to disturb the peace and quiet here. The owners live onsite and are available to help in any way, our aim is for our guests to have the BEST VACATION EVER!
