FireplaceSetting – Gunnison River Lodge is on-the-water so you can fish right out the back door. The Lodge is located just 5 minutes from the town of Gunnison and the Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport.  Just a few miles downstream the Gunnison River flows into Colorado’s largest body of water, known as Blue Mesa Reservoir where sight seeing, boating, sailing, and fishing abound.  Our front yard looks toward Hartman Rocks.  If you’re inclined for a game of golf you’ll be excited to know that Gunnison River Lodge is actually surrounded by the Dos Rios golf course where the public is welcomed.  For those with a little more energy left at the end of the day you might even try biking to downtown Gunnison for a little taste of the wild west.

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.  Crested Butte is not only known as the "Last Great Colorado Ski Town" it offers an amazing shopping experience with its prominent Victorian architecture within the ever popular Crested Butte's national historic district.  To help your shopping experience you'll be happy to know that a similar lodge or villa at Crested Butte would cost twice or three times that of Gunnison River Lodge.

Fishing – ESPN recently 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 house.  Within 30 minutes drive you 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 you happen to stay with us in the September-November timeframe you can catch the Kokanee salmon in the river as they make their way upstream to the Roaring Judy hatchery.
