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 Montrose

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 place. Extremely quiet which that is what we wanted. Very clean. Had everything we needed in the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom ect. GREAT LOCATION! The property has a detached garage that has skis, bikes, snow shoes ect. I plan to come back and stay at this exact place. Couldn't have asked for anything better. A total gem!

Wonderful cabin, good location!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable cabin far enough away from everything to feel like a get away but close enough to Montrose to be able to run into town for whatever you need. The cabin is quiet with daily appearances by deer and wild turkeys. Would highly recommend the cabin.

An abundance of peace and solitude

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was set agains the backdrop of the Black Canyon and we were surrounded by beauty. During the early evening we sat on the porch and enjoyed the silence, occasionally punctuated by the sound of elk. Connie and Tom were gracious hosts. They were available when we needed them and respectful of our privacy. Their dog Red was gentle, eager to greet us and play.
