Property description

Master bedroom with walk in closet and French Doors over looking the creek. Open the doors and listen the the creek as you fall asleep. Master bath has a double walk-in shower with a Jacuzzi hot tub and double sink.

Living room with TV is adjacent to master on 1st floor. Kitchen area has a ranch table with seating for 10. There is also a bar counter with seating for 6 so you can enjoy a glass of wine as your 'chef' prepares your meals. Kitchen has built in double oven and 5 burner gas counter top range.
Going up the stairs to the second floor, there is a walkway that bridges in both directions to 2 bedrooms and family room on one side; 1 bedroom and bath on the other side. The walkway crosses over the living room area and entrance hall . The kids can use the family room upstairs to hang out and play on the game table or watch the TV. Adults can catch a break enjoying a fire in the living room downstairs and watch their own TV.
My personal favorite is sitting on the screened-in-deck off the kitchen watching the wildlife with the creek running and bubbling.
The front of the house faces west and perfect for colorful sunsets over the hills.

Car: Necessary

We enjoy rafting down the Taylor river, although our kids were a little afraid the first time. The tour guides are great and there are some fast spots, but they tell exactly what to do. We had a family reunion and most of the crowd went rafting. Rafting rivers are rated from 1-5 and 5 being the most aggressive in difficulty, the Taylor is rated at a 2.5.

Bring your horses or rent some, we have 35 acres on a 1000 acre ranch and adjacent to millions of acres of government land. 3 of our pastures are fenced; 2 have water.

Hiking, walking and riding trails abound out your back door

If you come you have to go to the 'Gunny Sack' restaurant and have one of Dave's 'best in town' burgers. It's a Cowboy Bistro, try their made-as-you-wait chocolate chip cookies served with cinnamon ice cream and whipped cream on top. Delicious.

Crested Butte is the 'last great Colorado ski town', and it is. I've been to Aspen, Vail, Winter Park, Steamboat, Park City and Lake Tahoe and C.B. is the best, yet undiscovered, few if any lift lines and always something going on.

Our family loves the Gunnsion Cattlemen's Days featuring the oldest professional rodeo in Colorado. 4 days of bucking bulls and clowns, ets. Events happening daily in the 10 days before the rodeo in mid-July, don't miss the western flavor.

Finally, what town puts a 50' Christmas in the middle of main street, lit up and decorated for the holidays? Or what school puts a huge school initial on a mountain and then lighting it up at Christmas to announce the holiday season? Ya gotta come, obviously, our family loves it here and we'd love to share it with you.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My wife and I are originally from the Chicago area and migrated to Milwaukee. Our 3 kids love the life when we come to the 'ranch'. Someday we intend on splitting our time between Colorado and Florida when I retire.

Why the Owner Chose Gunnison, CO, USA:
My wife and I searched all over Montana and Colorado for 10 years before finding the perfect spot for us. It's a combination of Gunnison Cowboy and Crested Butte laid back. We have horses and often cattle grazing out our front door and in our corrals. But what sold us was sitting outside drinking a cup of coffee or hot chocolate in a rocking chair with the warm morning sun coming up while the creek bubbles in front of us. Then enjoying the sunsets over the mountains at night. Several years ago, I brought my wife to Gunnison for the first time to show her the property I had found. It was December and as we walked out of a restaurant after dinner, it started to snow and just then, a horse drawn sleigh came prancing by in the street in front of us; she asked me how I had arranged that! She was sold.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Gunnison (or Gunny as everyone calls town) is a unique town. Over the Christmas holiday, the town puts up a hugh decorated Christmas tree in the middle of the main street, using a manhole for a tree stand. The holiday spirit is truely a wonderful experience.
