About the Property

3 Bedroom, 1 1/2 bath, 1 level

The home is located a mile west of Gunnison in the quiet area of Island Acres. Island Acres is between the Gunnison River and a branch of the river used for irrigation (great for tubing). We are conveniently located about a mile from Gunnison and the Gunnison airport. The home is near everything Gunnison Valley has to offer: fishing, hunting, skiing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, white water rafting, lake activities, etc. The list is huge in Gunnison. More specifically, we are 30 minutes away from Crested Butte Ski Area and Monarch Ski Area. Blue Mesa Reservoir is only 15 minutes away. Dos Rios Golf Course is about a half mile away. Hartman Rocks(10 minutes away) is full of trails for hiking and mountain biking and there is also an observatory there. This house is a five minute walk to the Twin Bridges for fishing and the White Water Park for kayaking, rafting and swimming. It is common to see deer grazing in the open field in front of the house and we have even seen a moose and bear there.
Two bedrooms have queen beds and one bedroom has two twin beds and is connected to the half bath. There is a full kitchen with most cooking items and dishes. The kitchen flows into the dining area and then to the living area. The bedrooms are down the hall from the living room. The house is on one level and is half of a duplex, also owned by this owner, and is separated from the other half of the duplex by two garages. Living room has TV with cable, DVD and Wi-Fi. There is a game cabinet for evenings in, a rec center in town for indoor swimming and working out. Gas BBQ and lawn furniture for gorgeous summer days.
This house is only a one minute walk from the 'Gunnison River House' in case you need another house for friends or family in the area.
This is a pet free and non-smoking property.

Gunnison sits in the middle of several wilderness areas; great for camping, 4-wheeling, mountain biking and hiking. Year round activities available.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Jan and Kim are sisters and grew up in Gunnison (an amazing place to grow up). We have another sister, Jennifer, who owns a property just north of this home and on the river. Jan is the only sister currently living here full time. She will be a wealth of information on where to go and who to get in touch with. Kim and Phil (her husband) and Cole (son) live in Denver and come for frequent visits; especially for Cattlemen's Days in July.

Why the Owner Chose Gunnison, CO, USA:
We bought this property because we wanted to have a home for our Mom (the best) and this is where we grew up. This particular property is in a quiet area with easy access to town and still rural enough to have lots of wildlife and great walking and biking. Gunnison is an amazing place especially for people who love the outdoors.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We like the quiet and that this is a dead end subdivision. Not a lot of traffic. The irrigation ditch was perfect for nieces and nephews to play in. We are right by the river for fishing and near the white water park for rafting. The open field in front is nice to catch glimpses of the deer out the front windows.
