About Tom or Connie Wise

We moved our family to cool Colorado from central Texas in l991. This was the most perfect place in the whole state. Tom is a farmer, rancher, builder, and outdoorsman. You can see all of these talents in the cabin he lovingly built on our place.

Tom or Connie Wise purchased this cabin in 1992

Why Tom or Connie Wise chose Southwest

When we decided to move our cattle operation from Texas to the western mountains, we looked for property all over Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. Our van broke down at the top of Red Mountain Pass, so we were forced to come to Montrose for a repair.

Wow! This was the place we were looking for. We went home, loaded up everything we owned in a stock trailer, and moved here. That was 23 years ago. We are so thankful our brakes went out.

What makes this cabin unique

The views are almost unbroken. There are trees, water, and lots of space. At the same time, Montrose is a great town, just close enough, not too close, with lots going on. Come check it out.

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We visited Black Canyon as a group of friends and stayed in the cabin for two nights. It is very close to Black Canyon and also an easy (and scenic) drive to Ouray. Connie and Tom are very friendly and accommodating. The place is quiet, cozy, and comfortable, equipped with everything you would need. We had great time there together. Will definitely come back if visiting the area again!

Carmel, IN

Beautiful, clean little cabin with fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved this place. The cabin is fantastic, and the property is even better. In the evenings, we watched elk and deer from the balcony overlooking the pasture in back. During the day, we would sit on the swing located on the hill to the side of the house, and just gaze at the mountains. The close proximity to Black Canyon was also great. As a bonus, the hosts were very nice people. We had a nice chat with Tom and Connie when they came to meet us on our arrival day. I can honestly say that this is among the best VRBO rentals we have ever stayed in.

Great place to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is situated by itself, very private, about 15 minutes from Montrose, and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. It is well stocked, and very livable including an upstairs game room with tv and movies. The sunsets were fabulous, and the stars at night are spectacular. We saw fox, deer, wild turkeys, hawks, and of course the glorious mountain views. Connie and Tom are wonderful hosts. I highly recommend this rental.

Well situated and homey

Comfortable cabin in a quiet pastoral setting near the Black Canyon. The owners were very friendly and our grand daughter loved the little nook on the second floor.
