4 Bedrooms 4 Baths In Gunnison, Colorado

With 3,000 square feet of living space and a 2 acre manicured yard on the Gunnison river, "Diamond On The River" is indeed a special vacation property. This home couldn`t be more comfortable with 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, 2 living areas, and a fabulous setting right on the river. Located at the end of the road, this oasis property has it all for your next family vacation! Fresh off a full remodel, the owners have gone out of their way to provide a true Colorado retreat.

Upon entering through the family room, you immediately get the sense that relaxation won't be a problem on this trip! With a large flat panel television, seating for the whole family, views out to the river, a game table and shuffleboard, this room sets the tone for the whole home. There is a brand new full bath in this room for convenience or the dedicated use of one of the guest bedrooms down the hall.

Leave the family room and you will find two bedrooms and another full bathroom. One guest bedroom has a queen size bed and the other has another queen bed and also a daybed/trundle combo.

The end of the hall opens into the great room with new rock fireplace and inset flat panel TV. With vaulted ceilings and trophy mounts from a lifetime of hunting, this room is the definition of comfortable The kitchen is open with a pass through to the great room so everyone is involved when the family gathers. Around the corner is the dining room with seating for 10 and a wall of picture windows which look out to the backyard and over the river.

Upstairs you will find a third bedroom with queen sleigh bed and it`s own en-suite bath, along with, the master bedroom with king bed and huge master bath featuring dual vanities, jetted tub, and an oversized glass shower. This room has a multitude of windows which overlook the expansive backyard and the river.

Outside you will find a large deck with seating, a gas grill, horseshoe pit and even a tree house cottage for the little ones to play in. So, take a seat in the brightly colored Adirondack chairs overlooking the river and let life slow down for a while at Diamond on the River!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Perfect layout for a groups of friends to spend a few days away from home. Everyone got their own space with the bedroom layout and also had a great time gathered together in the two family areas. Crested Butte was only a short 20 minute drive up the road, perfect place for skiing!! Can't wait to experience summer activities in our next visit!

Awesome first VRBO experience!!

  • 5 of 5

When our group of friends and fellow Western State Alumni (40ish years ago) decided to plan a reunion and get together, we decided to look at a VRBO. We didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised at how well this reunion went, especially the home we shared. The home was beautiful, perfect amount of beds and bathrooms for all of us and was a very relaxing and serene setting right beside the Gunnison River. The firepit was great giving us almost the feeling of camping together and said we were actually "glamping". The home was clean, cozy and had everything we needed. We loved the game room and found the shuffle board very amusing. Thank you for making this stay perfect in everyway!

A Great Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we were looking for to gather the family for Thanksgiving. Sad we didn't get to enjoy the fire pit. Would love to enjoy this place in the spring and summer. I'm sure it's beautiful. House was well equipped and very comfortable!

This property meet and exceeded every possible expectation. It is set up to feel like home away from home. Would recommend this house to everyone, and there are things for all ages. From a club house and sand pit, fire pit on the river a deck to relax on and a shuffle board to play inside. Great meeting point for families to get away and meet. A++

We loved staying here! Kid friendly and very cozy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights with our 7 month old and 3 year old. They both loved it! My 3 year old couldn't get enough of the swings and the sandbox and my 7 month old was very happy rolling around on the soft rugs. When they went to bed it was very cozy and relaxing watching TV on the comfortable couches. It was also great for hosting. My sister also lives in Gunnison and we had them over for dinner a few nights. Thank you so much and I hope we can com back at some point.

Fabulous stay for second year in a row

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a little over a week in Gunnison at your lovely home. It is so beautiful on the Gunnison River. This year we brought our bikes to enjoy the dirt roads. The space your home provides both inside and out in the yard is so fabulous. We enjoy spending our August out of the Texas Heat and at your lovely rental.

ps the beds are really comfortable. Sometimes rentals provide less than comfortable mattresses. Yours are the best!
