  • Kansas Family

    "Great place to vacation. We weren't sure about how to entertain our nine year old daughter, but there were plenty of surrounding activities for her to do. She had a blast river rafting, climbing on rocks, and riding horses. My husband liked the fishing right outside the cabin door. Very peaceful relaxing stay. We will be back!"

  • Second time just as perfect

    "We have stayed at many VRBO properties - this is the only one we have come back to and actually PLANNED our vacation around the few open dates (3 months in advance even). I can't say enough about this river home - very comfortable, beautiful back yard with river, super location, and this time we did get to meet Martin. We again did the boat tour on the Black Canyon of the Gunnison (reservations only) - this time went on up to Crested Butte. We wanted to do a float trip with Three Rivers, but the weather was not special the one day we had. Because of the river,I would worry about very young children, it is very swift and cold (I am told), but any one else should love this home. Most VRBO properties do not have mustard, ketchup, etc, but the folks that rent this property leave food, which is great for the next group coming in. Do NOT expect this on your other rentals if this is the first VRBO you have been to. Thank you, again, Martin for you wonderful home."

  • Pleasant Surprise!

    "We were in no mood for any unpleasant surprises. Upon our arrival, a drive up a fantasy valley and across a rustic wooden bridge, we had apprehension about staying so close to the owners' home at first. Then, I met the owners and saw the cabin. This place has magical and serene energy. We disconnected from the rest of the world. Left the door open most of the time. Every window has a scenic view in every direction. The inside is very beautiful and cozy with massive log walls and comfortable furniture. The landscaping is very Colorado. You can hike up into the forest and be totally alone. You can drive to the Gunnison River to fish all day. You can sit and read on the deck with chipmunks and watch barn swallows play. The barn is covered with interesting antiques. The hot tub is clean and spacious. They have lovely rescue horses, which are like watching living artwork seen through the framed windows inside the cabin. Mostly, though, the owners Walter and Georgia, are really really good nature people (and their dog, Tux, as well). We really melted into relaxation here and enjoyed the beauty. There were no issues. Not one thing went bad (and we are picky people). This is a wonderful find."

  • Fabulous Property!!

    "Mark and Janet, We cannot say enough about your beautiful property. It was everything we had hoped for and we hope to return for another great time with our family. There were 13 of us and we had plenty of comfortable beds and dining space. Your kitchen is so well stocked.......puts mine to shame! The kids loved the waterfall, fishing, feeding carrots to the horses, the playground equipment and the trampoline. Thanks for all of your hard work and for the peaceful vacation you offer!"

Gunnison Travel Tips

Experience the Heart and Soul of Colorado with Gunnison Vacation Rentals

A spectacular sunset greets you from the deck of your Gunnison vacation rental—can you imagine a better surprise? Considered the heart and soul of Southwest Colorado, this is an unpretentious, authentic, and completely refreshing vacation destination whether you want to visit summer, winter, fall, or spring. With a rich history, ranching was the mainstay of early Gunnison settlers; then the discovery of silver brought thousands to the area and later, at the turn of the century, coal and cattle ruled the economy. Today, in addition to tourism and recreation, Gunnison boasts Western State College as a major area employer.

Recreation and Activities Are Endless in Gunnison

Outdoor recreation and activities feature prominently in Gunnison, and you'll be able to enjoy all that the area offers, especially with the comforts provided by your Gunnison lodging. Imagine a wonderful budget-conscious, amenity-filled alternative to a hotel—choose from an wide variety of Southwest Colorado cabins, homes, and condos. You and your group will have multiple bedrooms, a kitchen, perhaps a deck or private hot tub, and above all privacy and comfort. You can prepare a picnic lunch for your day's activities or a delicious home-cooked meal in the fully appointed kitchen of your Gunnison vacation accommodation.

Winter and Summer Enjoyment in Gunnison

From your home base of your Gunnison rental you can take a scenic hike or perhaps take in some bird watching. Take a hike in the spectacular Rockies or bike a rugged mountain trail. How about some rafting or kayaking—all found in the Gunnison area. The area is also considered by many to be some of the country's best fly-fishing and hunting opportunities. Of course, during the winter months, snow sports feature prominently. If you want a little culture during your visit, check out the Pioneer Museum, one of the many galleries or the Gunnison Center for the arts. For those looking for culinary delights, Gunnison has many, many dining options, from fast to gourmet.
