Property description

Custom Log Cabin located just 2 miles west of the town of Gunnison. Our property is situated on 2 beautiful acres with manicured lawn, trees and gorgeous patios to relax on. The Log Home has an upscale feel featuring numerous upgrades such as a gorgeous Kitchen with granite counters as well as professional decorating with designer furnishings, this vacation retreat exudes top quality throughout. Our home offers a gourmet kitchen with dining area where guests can all hang out for casual entertaining. With two gorgeous bedrooms in the main house and a detached guest suite apartment that is beautifully decorated with two sofas queen bed, refrigerator, 42inch flatscreen television, gas fireplace, patio deck and nice privacy. Friends and family will be fighting as to who gets the apartment. With two beautiful acres and two stunning patios you can relax with a fire inside or outside to warm your hearts content. If you still need to warm up there is a 6 person hot tub just outside the back door on the back patio. The front yard consist of open manicured lawn for fun games with a small irrigation ditch that gives a beautiful stream in the summer months. On a hot day feel free to swim in the stream to cool off like it is your own pool. Fresh water from the Gunnison River flows through the property to flood the fields out west for the ranchers. With total privacy in the back of the house with nothing but open land and a gorgeous hillside that accounts for gorgeous sunsets on the back patio while grilling your favorite meal. If you have a pet we have a small fenced in Kennel for your pet to have their privacy to breath in the fresh air. If you love flowers my wife decorates the front porch with stunning pots of flowers in the summer. We usually have a hard time picking a spot we like to relax either on the front porch rocking in the rocking chairs or watching the sunsets on the back patio with a small fire in the fire pit. We named our home the 'Cabin In The Sun' because its sits a little elevated from the front yard standing out just a bit from all the gorgeous cottonwood trees leaving the sun to shine on her in all its mysterious ways. If you need a little shade park yourself under a beautiful tree or on the hammock hanging on the back patio between the wood beams under the roof of the house. The house also features a garage with all kinds of toys from 4 bikes, snowshoes, bocci balls, golf clubs,
fishing rods and reels, sleds, beach chairs, coolers.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: My wife and I met each other in Gunnison 14 years ago. Gunnison has always bean dear to our hearts. My wife purchased the cabin after she decided she wanted to live in Gunnison after college. She met me the same week after buying the cabin and hence the cabin is special to both of us. For work reasons we had to live in Denver. The cabin is our first priority in life and we visit it as much as we can. We put our heart and soul's into the property and when we visit the place we hate to leave to go home.

Why the Owner Chose Gunnison:
One of the most beautiful houses in Gunnison with a perfect setting.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is so cozy and warm with such an upscale Log home feeling. The guest apartment is an added benefit along with that the property is centrally located to everything the Gunnison valley has to offer.
