Large Natural Log House, 3 floors, sleeps 6-10, Baths 2.5
I love this ranch and the area and really enjoy sharing the mountain experiance with those that visit. The rental home is a reflection of me (a little bit rustic and very comfortable).
Why Owner/Manager chose Almont
This property is close enough to town (10 min.) to be very convenient but just far enough away to be peaceful. Sitting on the deck watching the calves romp or horses graze brings the heart rate down and keeps us grounded. My great granddad cowboy-ed just down the road from here when he was young (his picture is over the kitchen bar) and that history here just feels right.
What makes this House unique
Come play hard and rest easy. Enjoy a unique place to stay.

Beautiful cabin in a great location
We spent a month in this property and loved it. It is a beautiful cabin in a great location between Gunnison and Crested Butte.
We have a dog and she loved the various hikes around the area.
The only negative for us city folks was the total lack of ATT phone coverage and very Expensive Verizon internet that we had to sign up for to stay in communication with the outside world.
I'm glad you had a good time in our cabin in Crested Butte. Living in a small mountain town has some advantages and disadvantages. One disadvantage is that the small community can't support all the carriers that the big city can. When you're on vacation we hope that the benefits of a small-town vacation outweigh the negatives. Hope to see you again soon.
This is a gorgeous, peaceful retreat. Birdsong and a babbling creek provide a restful soundtrack to kick back after a day of actively enjoying the mountains. We hiked and fished, zip-lined and rafted, shopped and golfed. The location between Gunnison and Crested Butte offers even more choices than these, but we could only stay one week.
Thanks for the nice review hope to see you again sometime. You were great guests
Riding The Trails on our Rzrs
My husband and I along with my parents stayed here for a week. It was a cozy piece of paradise in the mountains. We had everything we needed. All the comforts of home. I enjoyed sitting on the porch swing watching the horses. I highly recommend this rental and would love to stay again if we ever return the area.
Never wanted to leave!
Such a beautiful place to spend our vacation! The stars at night were amazing. We loved waking up to the cool mornings and the sound of the horses in the pasture. The fire pit each night was great for s'mores. We spent lots of time on the porch swing enjoying the mountains, looking for wildlife. When you are out on the porch you can always hear the stream that runs through the property. It is so relaxing. The drive into Crested Butte is convenient. But we still felt like we were out in the woods. The kitchen is well equipped, making it a joy to cook for my family each morning with the cool air coming through the windows. The bedrooms are large and comfy, the living and dining areas are roomy as well. I wish we had stayed longer. If we had it to do over again, I would have done less away from the cabin and stayed right there and relaxed more...Thanks for sharing your beautiful place with us. We loved it.
I'm so glad you enjoyed it, we feel the same about the place. Please come visit us again.
Fantastic Ranch, great location, wonderful hosts
ur family stayed on the ranch for an amazing week in July 2016. It was even better than what we expected. We really loved the location because it was about halfway between Gunnison and Crested Butte. It was easy to get to all the hikes, cute little (very busy) Crested Butte and the rivers. The first few days we had a little challenge unplugging from life as there is literally no cell phone service or wifi. However, by day three we were so relaxed we didn't want to turn our cell phones back on when we left. It was a healthy break from technology.
The hosts, Kirk and his wife, we're so kind and helpful. One evening we wanted to have a bonfire with our family and we asked if we could trim the grass around the fire pit. I would have been happy to do a quick weed eater trim around the pit but next thing I knew Kirk was out there and had it all mowed (it didn't need mowed, we just wanted the grass away from the fire pit.
Our kids really enjoyed the ranch. They had so much fun watching the horses and steer. They were completely fascinated listening to the rain on the roof since we don't get much rain in CA.
Overall we loved our stay. I fell in love with this ranch and would love to have a property like this for my own. Since that's not possible staying here is the next best things.
Thanks for the kind review. We really appreciate your choosing to stay with us, the great shape you left the home in and hope you will come back.
Just to clarify the cell phone and wifi issue for future guests: At&t is spotty at best in our location but Verizon works great. We also have Verizon wifi prepay which is what we use here on the ranch.
Thanks again for taking the time to post the review.
5 Stars for sure. Loved it!!
Great stay. Perfect for our needs.
If you desire horses, you can bring your own or we can help you lease local.
