About Lynn McNitt

Gavin and I purchased this house when we first moved to Lake City. With not such a hectic work schedule for us this upcoming season, (we sold our local business), we decided to rent out our home to visitors. We love our home and hope you will enjoy your stay here.

Lynn McNitt purchased this house in 2003

What makes this house unique

The house sits on the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River. Peaceful and quiet, with only the sound of the river while you enjoy your morning coffee on the deck.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful week spent in this gorgeous home on the river! Listening to the river from the wrap around deck was so relaxing. Many hours were spent daily lounging and enjoying the view of the river, the mountains and deer. We loved how close the home is to all the shops and restaurants but still feels remote and private. Lynn and Gavin are amazing people and went above and beyond to make our stay perfect!

Great home and location in Lake City

  • 5 of 5

The Lake City River House is a tranquil oasis. An short easy walk to the shops and restaurants. Lynn was great to work with and made sure everything went smoothly. Deer peeking in the windows and walking around the yard every day. Perfect location to take off for rafting in Gunnison or trips around the stunning Alpine Loop where we saw Moose, Bald Eagles and Big Horn Sheep. Thanks Lynn for your hospitality.

Lovely cabin in a perfect spot- close to town and the river

  • 5 of 5

Great house right by the river. Easy walk to town but far enough away for peace and quiet. Lynn was accommodating in every way. And she also has a cool shop in town you should check out. We enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the river while watching deer stroll by for their evening meal. Thanks again Lynn for a great week in Lake City.

Beautiful Home in a Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

The Lake City River House was a perfect home away from home... we couldn't ask for anything more! A wonderful house right on the river, a short stroll from town. Hear the river flow right from the deck! Close to everything, but you still feel isolated. The owners were very nice and easy to work with the entire process. We look forward to coming back!
