About the property

Home Away From Home

We are located south of Gunnison in a quiet location with a very beautiful view of Hartman Rocks Recreation Area and surrounding mountains. Hartman Rocks is a popular for mountain trail biking, hiking and several events. Western State University is 5 miles away. Blue Mesa Reservoir is about 20 minutes. Skiing at Mount Crested Butte? Only 45 minutes.

The homes driveway is large enough to accommodate a boat trailer. Your stay will be very comfortable. The house is fully furnished and includes a washer and dryer. You also have the added luxury of a steam shower in the master bath. The recreation room has several pieces of exercise equipment. On the front porch is a swing. A garage is also available for parking during the winter months. In between the garage and the home is a deck with tables, chairs and a hot tub.

About Cyndi Wokersien

Now retired from the heat, air and sheet-metal business here in Gunnison. Traveling, exploring the country and meeting new friends is what I enjoy most of the year now.

Cyndi Wokersien purchased this house in 2006

Why Cyndi Wokersien chose Southwest

I think you will enjoy this location for many reasons, such as the quiet location, the view and access of Hartman Rocks, just across the road, the perfect night view of beautiful stars and the milky-way, and much more.

What makes this house unique

You will find this home is set up for the whole family. Friends and family of all ages will relax and enjoy their time here. The steam shower in the master bath and the exercise equipment in the rec room are definite pluses, as is the hot tub on the outdoor deck. The rec room also has a dvd player so you can watch a movie there while others can watch cable in the main living room.

Great Home - Stay - Suggestions for Improvement

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice home and we will definitely come back. There are a couple of suggestions that we hope the owner will listen to which will improve the customer experience.

1. Give each person at least 2 bath towels and 2 wash cloths at the beginning of the stay. While I understand there is no maid service, it was very inconvenient to have ONLY 1 bath towel for the entire week. No wash cloths were given. It was disappointing that this request was not responded to when we asked for it. As nice as the property is and as inexpensive as towels and wash cloths are, it seems reasonable to provide this.

2. We cooked every meal at the house. The grill is very nice and a great perk. Extremely appreciative of this opportunity. It could have been improved by making sure there were more than 2 hand towels for drying dishes.

3. Internet service - the internet service was intermittent. We really appreciated the fast response for help when we couldn't get service. For your information, internet service was spotty and inconsistent all week, so your provider isn't giving you the coverage that you are likely paying for.

4. It would be helpful to have written instructions concerning the oven operation. The user interface of this oven is not intuitive and very difficult to use. While we managed to get it on and off, it would have been very helpful to have an owner's manual or instructions as to how you get the bake temperature on, stay on, and how to operate the timer. It clearly isn't like most other ovens that people use.

5. The hot tub is a great perk and added to the enjoyment of the stay.

6. We had 4 people staying at the home. Even though we took short showers, it appeared that we quickly ran out of hot water. Later in the stay we learned that the hot water tank operates on demand. What appeared to be running out of hot water was really not the case. Knowing this detail up front would have been very useful up front.

Overall, we truly enjoyed the property and definitely will come back. With the exception of the towel situation, Cyndi was extremely responsive every time we had a question and this was very important to our decision to choose the property and come back.

Very comfortable, outstanding view, excellent location next to the NW entrance to Hartman Rocks.

  • 4 of 5

Good living space, convenient garage storage for bikes, motorcycles, plenty of driveway space for a motorcycle trailer. So easy to ride Hartman Rocks every day! Hopefully the errant smoke alarm has been repaired/replaced!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

House has plenty of room and is in a great location. Close enough to town for convenience but far enough out that you don't feel in town. A great base camp for trips to Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP or Sand Dunes NP. Crested Butte about a 30 min drive away the airport 5

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect Gunnison getaway home. We stayed there with two other families and it was spacious and well located if you like using the Hartman Rocks trails. The owner and property manager were very friendly, accommodating and responsive, and the house was fully stocked with everything you need for a vacation. It's on a quiet side street and feels peaceful. This was our second time staying and we hope to stay there again.
