This rare Gunnison River waterfront getaway is located in Gunnison, Colorado, and is surrounded by breathtaking river views, the rocky skyline of Hartman Rocks, and is located just two miles from the classic western town of Gunnison. This vacation home is on-the-water so guests can fish right out the back door. Just a few miles downstream the Gunnison River flows into Colorado’s largest body of water, known as Blue Mesa Reservoir where sightseeing, boating, sailing, and fishing abound. The front yard looks toward Hartman Rocks.

If guests are inclined to play a game of golf they'll be excited to know that the property is surrounded by the Dos Rios golf course where the public is welcome. For those with a little more energy left at the end of the day, visitors might even try biking to downtown Gunnison for a little taste of the Wild West and some fabulous shopping at the local galleries and gift shops.

Nearby, just a short 30 minutes away is the picturesque town of Crested Butte. Crested Butte features some of the finest snow skiing and snowboarding in the country. It is not only known as the "Last Great Colorado Ski Town" as it also offers an amazing shopping experience with its prominent Victorian architecture within the ever popular Crested Butte's national historic district.

ESPN ranked the Gunnison River as "the best overall freestone trout river in America". The famous blue ribbon waters of the Gunnison River offer trophy brown, rainbow, and cutthroat trout literally within 50 feet of the rental. Within 30 minutes drive guests can also be on the Taylor River, East River, Spring Creek, Lake Fork of the Gunnison, or Blue Mesa Reservoir. The possibilities are simply endless. Also, if guests happen to stay in the September-November timeframe they can catch the Kokanee salmon in the river as they make their way upstream to the Roaring Judy hatchery.
