Located just outside of Gunnison on Dos Rios Island, 30 min. from Crested Butte, and 5 min. from the Gunnison International Airport.
The Tip of the Island is famous for its excellent fly fishing and bait & spinner trout fishing. From your charming secluded 'tree house' location, the Gunnison River flows by you on both sides. You'll enjoy the natural stereo sound of the river's main branch in your kitchen and living room windows and the west branch from your two bedroom windows.
Right next to the Dos Rios Golf Course (actually, between the Front and Back 9! Plenty of water, trees and sand enhance this well-established, mountain course. It's a great course with plenty of difficulty and a par 72 ranking. A round of golf only costs $65 per person.
The Gunnison River is the main tributary that feeds the largest reservoir in Colorado, Blue Mesa Lake, which is just nine miles west of the property, offering all kinds of fishing (Mackinaw, German Brown and Rainbow Trout and Kokanee Salmon.) Sailing, waterskiing, jet skiing, parasailing and beaching are popular past-times enjoyed by all visitors.
There is lots of wildlife around the property including deer, red fox, rabbits, eagles, mink,... and sometimes an occasional bear
wanders by. In the summertime there's lots of kayaking, canoeing and rafting on the river - much of it organized from the Gunnison White
Water River Park just 1/2 mile upstream. Please contact me to get you in touch with several of the white water river raft companies to book
your personal river raft trip.
Mountain biking is everywhere - but the Hartman Rocks Recreational Area, 3 miles away, is famous. Several hundred miles of trails can be explored from your bicycle, dirt bike, or just hiking. Rope climbing enthusiasts go there too.
