About Lee Reed

My wife and I lived in the Gunnison Country, in this home, for four years before moving. We enjoyed the area and our friends so much, we decided to keep the home after we moved. We take every opportunity to come home and see old friends and revitalize ourselves. Some of our favorite activities are shopping in Gunnison and Crested Butte, hiking, 4-wheeling, enjoying meals as the locally owned restaurants, but mostly, sitting on the front porch or back deck and taking in the creation around us.

Lee Reed purchased this house in 2005

Why Lee Reed chose Southwest

We purchased this property as our residence when we lived in Gunnison. When we moved from Gunnison, we loved the friends we made, the house and the area too much to totally leave, so we kept the house as our second home.

What makes this house unique

When we go to our Gunnison home, we enjoy sipping our morning coffee on the front porch and watch the sunrise and the Tomichi Creek valley wake-up. We enjoy our evening wine on the back deck while watching the sunset and the horses at the Green Mesa Ranch. Between these events, we enjoy hiking and jeeping the Gunnison Country, shopping in Gunnison and Crested Butte, boating on Blue Mesa Reservoir.

Every detail covered

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the views and amenities of the Gunnison Country Getaway. The views were breathtaking, and in the home every detail was covered. Our families (13 total) fit like a glove! I have already recommended this and would continue to recommend this property to others traveling to the area looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of town.

Beautiful home and property!

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous home that fit our family of 11. Each of us had our own space without being on top of each other. Clean and comfortable ....we would definitely stay again. The views are incredible on top of the hill ....sunrises and sunsets are amazing. The only con would be we chose this property because we could ride our ATVs on the BLM land adjacent to the property but when we got there the gate was locked that allowed access and the owners wouldn't allow access since previous ATVers had abused the privilege.. Lee did tell us this was a possibility. Pitkin is 16 miles away so we just took our ATVs and rode there.
