About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath with detached Guest Suite apartment on 2 private acres

Custom Log Cabin located just 2 miles west of the town of Gunnison. Our property is situated on 2 beautiful acres with manicured lawn, trees and gorgeous patios to relax on. The Log Home has an upscale feel featuring numerous upgrades such as a gorgeous Kitchen with granite counters as well as professional decorating with designer furnishings, this vacation retreat exudes top quality throughout. Our home offers a gourmet kitchen with dining area where guests can all hang out for casual entertaining. With two gorgeous bedrooms in the main house and a detached guest suite apartment that is beautifully decorated with two sofas queen bed, refrigerator, 42inch flatscreen television, gas fireplace, patio deck and nice privacy. Friends and family will be fighting as to who gets the apartment. With two beautiful acres and two stunning patios you can relax with a fire inside or outside to warm your hearts content. If you still need to warm up there is a 6 person hot tub just outside the back door on the back patio. The front yard consist of open manicured lawn for fun games with a small irrigation ditch that gives a beautiful stream in the summer months. On a hot day feel free to swim in the stream to cool off like it is your own pool. Fresh water from the Gunnison River flows through the property to flood the fields out west for the ranchers. With total privacy in the back of the house with nothing but open land and a gorgeous hillside that accounts for gorgeous sunsets on the back patio while grilling your favorite meal. If you have a pet we have a small fenced in Kennel for your pet to have their privacy to breath in the fresh air. If you love flowers my wife decorates the front porch with stunning pots of flowers in the summer. We usually have a hard time picking a spot we like to relax either on the front porch rocking in the rocking chairs or watching the sunsets on the back patio with a small fire in the fire pit. We named our home the 'Cabin In The Sun' because its sits a little elevated from the front yard standing out just a bit from all the gorgeous cottonwood trees leaving the sun to shine on her in all its mysterious ways. If you need a little shade park yourself under a beautiful tree or on the hammock hanging on the back patio between the wood beams under the roof of the house. The house also features a garage with all kinds of toys from 4 bikes, snowshoes, bocci balls, golf clubs,

fishing rods and reels, sleds, beach chairs, coolers.

About Heather Haibt

My wife and I met each other in Gunnison 14 years ago. Gunnison has always bean dear to our hearts. My wife purchased the cabin after she decided she wanted to live in Gunnison after college. She met me the same week after buying the cabin and hence the cabin is special to both of us. For work reasons we had to live in Denver. The cabin is our first priority in life and we visit it as much as we can. We put our heart and soul's into the property and when we visit the place we hate to leave to go home.

Heather Haibt purchased this house in 1999

Upscale Log Cabin Home! Centrally Located, Gorgeous
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Beautiful, cozy, well-designed cabin in an adorable town and close to skiing fun!

  • 5 of 5

The home owners were so kind as to decorate the cabin for our Christmas stay. It was gorgeous and festive. We had plenty of wood for the fireplace, a hot tub and an awesome pool table to enjoy when we weren't in Creste Butte skiing. The Cabin in the Sun was a warm & wonderful place to spend our family Christmas.

Great location and the yard, flowers and furnishings are terrific! The place was also very well-stocked in the kitchen and bathrooms. The back patio, fire pit, and grill were conducive to enjoyable evenings with friends. Our only wish was that we couldn't stay longer!

Exquisite Getaway

  • 5 of 5

if you are continuing to shop for a gunnison cabin, you are missing out. This property, cabin and furnishings are exquisite. The cabin is exactly as represented photographically and more except that the photos do not do the outdoor patio justice. The home is wonderfully appointed with beautiful furnishings, a fully stocked kitchen and high end dishes. Being here feels like being a guest in someone's home, not a renter in a vacation property. The beds and pillows are extremely comfortable and appear to be new. The location could not be better being a bike ride to town and to biking trails and the river, and a 30 minute drive to crested butte. The groundskeeper stops by periodically and is wonderfully friendly and helpful. There are four bikes for your use, plenty of nice towels, working hot tub for no extra charges, televisions everywhere, trouble free wifi,lush green front yard, deer all over the place just to give you some opening comments. And something else that makes this property trouble free is the owner. Delightful to deal with and extremely helpful and accommodating. If you want to kick back and relax or if you want to hike, bike, kayak, swim and fish, THIS IS YOUR PLACE. We did not bring our pet, but this owner is pet friendly and has photos of their pets in the home. We flew in from Atlanta and didn't want to check our dog, so he missed out on a great stay! Everything here is well maintained and everything worked. There is no air conditioning in the home, but we were there in July and did not need it, so don't let that deter you. Can't say enough nice things about this home, the setting and the owner. You won't be sorry. We very highly recommend this lovely cabin.

Gorgeous in Gunnison

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property with the belief that the photos were likely better than the reality. When we arrived, we realized that the reality was better than the photos! It's a very well-kept home, beautifully decorated and situated less than a mile outside of town. We had five people staying at the house, but we were able to cook and serve dinner outside on the patio for our larger family of 10 easily with the BBQ grill. We highly recommend the property and the owners - they couldn't have been nicer or more interested in our having a great vacation in their home!

Awesome experience-:)

  • 5 of 5

Being evacuated because of fires was sad!! These people went above and beyond to get us in there house with 4 hours notice!!! The home is amazing!!! I just can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was! The yard is to die for!!! Gorgeous flower pots!!! We set up 3-4 games, sat under a tree beside the creek and watched our grand children have an unforgettable time! Great for families. The home is very user friendly, beautiful new kitchen, hot tub, pool table, and great living space above garage. Was worried about no bathroom in garage area, but was not a problem! The owners were very hands on, anything we asked for or needed was there!!! I'll have to say this was our best experience with VRBO!! Thank you Ed!

Owner's Response: We could not have enjoyed stepping in and assisting this family with a quick response as to saving their vacation from their initial place being evacuated do to forest fires. They could not have been more appreciative, warm, and caring toward us and our property. They took such care of our house that it looked like no one even stayed there. We take so much pride in our house and yard that it was wonderful to hear the family had such a wonderful time enjoying everything the house had to offer. It is such a great feeling for others to enjoy and appreciate what my wife and I love so much! Thank you!
