GREAT VACATION RENTAL!
Everything about this home was just perfect for our family vacation! With 3 levels of living space, everyone was very comfortable and able to spread out! The home is fully stocked with EVERYTHING (and I mean everything) that you could need. From cleaning supplies, to anything you need in the kitchen! One of our favorite parts was being able to have our family dinners outside with the tables and chairs provided on the patio! A big plus is that the river was just a few steps away and town was a short walk down a designated path and over a bridge! We will definitely be back to stay in this home! Steve was a pleasure to work with as well!
Great place to stay!
My two friends and I spent 3 nights at the house while we hiked a few mountains in the area. It was perfect for our needs: quiet, clean, close to restaurants, useful kitchen, internet access, plenty of space, and three recliners for post-hike recovery!
My family has been vacationing in Lake City almost every year for over 30 years. As a result we have stayed in just about every accommodation available. For the past several years we have rented this house for a month's time and find it perfect for our needs. It is an easy walk to town via the walking trails or one can go the other direction and have access to hiking trails. The neighborhood is quiet and we have even gotten to know some of them over the years. The option to rent the basement apartment is an added plus for visiting friends and relatives. We along with our dog Gus give it 5 stars!
Great location - easy walk to town and short drive to lake and trail heads. Big covered deck, plenty of parking and lots of room in the house. Well-stocked kitchen; had everything we needed when we wanted to cook. Clean, well-maintained - owner is responsive and easy to deal with. Will stay here again!
Great place to stay! We spent 10 nights there during our elk hunt and it has everything you could need. Plenty of parking for trucks with trailers outside and plenty of room inside for hunters and all their equipment. Very functional for Hunters or a family looking to get away. You are close to everything in town and right off the river with beautiful views in every direction.
We spent several nights here for our annual guy UTV trip to ride the Alpine Loop. We could not have been more pleased, from the owner reaching out to us to check on things and being very accommodating to the cleanliness of the cabin. The cabin was very spacious and loaded with all the necessities. It is VERY convenient to everything from restaurants to riding and so on. We Definitely recommend this place and WILL be staying here again!
This place was great! We had a wonderful time and a great experience. The house was clean and well stocked and had everything we could possibly need. The property manager lives next door so when a small issue came up he came right over and fixed everything! Property owner was wonderful and very helpful! Would stay here and bring my family again! We had family members from 71 to 10 months old and it was great for all ages! It is so close to town even my 5 and 2 year old grandsons walked to town with us. Views are spectacular and a deer come up to see us more than once! Perfect for my entire family. We fished, when on jeep trails, shopped and just enjoyed our family time.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Lake City and at this house in particular. The owner is very accommodating and responsive. The property manager lives next door and welcomed us our first day providing some interesting history of the town and let us know he was available to us at any time if we needed him. The house was very clean when we arrived which made it easy to keep it that way. All pertinent information to include how to operate the televisions, the Wi-Fi password, the cleaning check out list etc. were posted in appropriate places with easy to follow steps. The house was well stocked with everything you would need for a week-long stay. It truly felt like a home away from home!!! I read in another review before going about the steep staircase to the second floor of the main home. I would like to reiterate that yes it is steep but unless you have a physical ailment it was doable.

We had 8 adults and 4 kids stay for a week in this house this summer. It was perfect! The 3 levels have each family the right amount of space. The house was clean and if we forgot anything, the house supplied it. The view was gorgeous and the very short walk to the river kept the kids entertained as well as the deer who came by to say hi. I recommend this property for a relaxing mountain getaway.
We have stayed four times at this house. It is roomy and convenient. All of our Lake City area activities can be conducted from here. The house is located in a subdivision close to Lake City, and traffic isn't too noisy. It's a short walk into town on a path and over a cool bridge that crosses the river. Staying here is easy. At the front entry, we can take off our boots, and hang coats. Immediately on the left is the laundry room where dirty clothes can be deposited. The kitchen has all of the implements necessary to cook. There is a large gas grill on the covered back porch that works. There are plenty of windows with screens to allow in fresh air. We had to work on our computers sometimes, and the internet worked fine. Our son and his wife stayed with us, and there was enough privacy for us all. We could drink coffee on the porch in the morning, and see deer strolling around. We plan to be back again for a fifth stay.
I stayed at this house for a week with my husband, my son, his wife, and their two children. The location is perfect, just a minute or two out of town, and within walking distance to the river. The house was just what we needed. We loved being able to use the grill, the fire pit, and especially seeing seven different deer from the porch! The house had plenty of space to relax, spread out and sleep, cook, and play games. We hope to stay here again next summer!
My husband and I stayed here for a month this summer and had a wonderful time. The house has everything that one needs for a comfortable stay and is located convenient to the walking trails into town. The neighborhood is quiet and the view from the back porch very pleasant. It is so nice to be able to walk to town, the market, park and not have to get in one's car. We have been coming to Lake City for vacations for over 30 years and have stayed in many different places. We would definitely stay here again.
We took a large group to Lake City and this property was absolutely perfect for our group. We made use of all three levels. My wife and I had the bedroom on the main floor. My son and his family took the upper level. My daughter and her family made use of the lower level. VERY convenient to all of Lake City. A short walk across the bridge spanning the Gunnison River puts you into the main part of the community, yet the property is situation on a very quiet side street, perfect for rest and relaxation. We were very pleased with the views. This property has everything anyone could ask for. We grilled on the deck. We were able to do some laundry. We had large family meals together. We had a few minor emergencies (nothing due to this property in any way) and made us of the EXCELLENT Lake City Medical Center. The staff there was caring, friendly, thorough and skilled. The medical care was as good as anything we might have expected in a large city. This reality only made our stay better. Should medical needs arise, knowing that such a superb facility is just around the corner makes relaxation complete with all worries set aside. Working with the property owner was incredibly easy. This was my first time to lease a property like this for vacation but it won't be my last! We opted to do our own cleaning, knowing we had a few adults who could pitch in and help. We did our best to leave the property ready for the next guests. Whoever preceded us did that for us and we appreciated it so much. It was clean, well furnished, very comfortable, and was truly perfect for our stay. We will be back!!!
This is a good launching pad for all activities. It's easy to live in. As you walk in the door with all of your gear for the day, you can drop dirty & wet stuff at the washroom immediately on the left. Coats & other things can be hung to the right. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes and pans, and is set up in a practical way. The living area is carpeted and comfortable. We didn't watch TV, so we can't rate that experience. The internet was tricky, but my husband was able to get it working with some help. The upstairs has most of the sleeping area, and was fine for us. But it's true that if you have knee problems, it would be hard getting up there. There are plenty of windows to open for fresh air. We didn't have a problem with continuously barking dogs. You can hear the river running at night, a pleasant sound, which drowns out alot of other noise. We didn't have any problems with the neighbors. There's not too much street traffic. You can access a gravel trail that takes you to the river, or to a bridge over the river and into the main part of Lake City. We enjoyed using this place for our stay. I gave it a "good" rather than "excellent" rating because there's not much of a view from inside of the house. You have to go over to a window to see out. About the cleanup list, I would say that if you can afford to pay the extra for the housekeeping bill, I would recommend doing that. I hate to say, but it was hanging over my head the whole time. Next time, I will try to plan for that expense. We had a great time and would be glad to go back to this place.
Our family loves staying at this property. There is plenty of room to have family and friends come for a few days or weeks. The property has been being improved every year with the latest being all new appliances. We have stayed in this house for four consecutive years and it is our intention to make it five next summer. Our stays have been as long as ten weeks and as short as three weeks. Our family owns a vacation rental in another state, so we understand fully what we expect in a vacation rental. Anyone renting this Lake City house will be pleased with its roominess, cleanliness, and convenience--not to mention the great location and ease of access. We think this is the best deal in Lake City considering the cost vs the value.
We spent 6 glorious weeks at this vacation home, perfectly proportioned for our use and enjoyment, including use by three  families in residence, including.........................gram and gramps, daughter/husband/2children and daughter/husband/2children...plus 2 dogs; and, five other family members, before arrival and/or after departure of the daughters and their families. All information provided was complete and correct, the owner was helpful in dealing with our concerns, and the physical plant was clean and in good order, condition and repair. We would definitely reccomend the property to friends/relatives and other lovers of the Lake City, Co. area!
We spent 5 days in this home last September and the location is close to town and the river. It is located in a subdivision next to other homes so if you're looking for a secluded place this may not be for you. That did not stop the deer, we saw a family of three every morning! Also, there is no cleaning fee, BUT once booked you will get a full page+ of cleaning instructions one of which is hauling away your own trash to the local waste station about 2 miles north of town....which charges a fee. We have stayed at numerous VRBO properties and certainly didn't mind cleaning, but felt the fact that we were expected to clean toilets, strip & wash all bedding (or you keep a portion of our deposit) and that it would cost us to dump our trash should have been mentioned in the write-up. Renters need to know all the policies before that put down their deposit. One note, for those with elderly parents or bad knees, there is one bedroom downstairs (queen bed) and all the other beds are up a steep staircase. Don't get us wrong, we throughly enjoyed our stay but think these are items that need mentioned.
This review has 2 valid points which are well received by the owner, however the owner feels there are several unfounded points stated in the review. Valid Points: From this point forward the steep staircase will be included in the property description. The 12 items outlined in the "Cleaning Checklist" will also be included in the property descripton. Each rental agreement is accompanied by a cover letter outlining 9 items. Item #1 states: "Please carefully read the entire lease agreement ." Item #2 states: "Please initial the bottom left hand corner of each page and sign the last page." The purpose for these 2 items is to insure each Lessee understands and verifies he has read the entire lease before paying any money or booking a reservation. The actual cleaning check list measures 5 inches x 6.25 inches = 1/3 of a full 8.5 x 11 inch page, not a full page+ as stated in the review. The front page of the lease states: "Upon execution of this lease agreement Lessee shall pay a refundable security, damage and cleaning deposit in the amount of X dollars. Said deposit shall be refunded within 21 days after the property has been vacated (providing if necessary any cleaning costs @ $25 per hour have been deducted) and the property, furniture and furnishings are left in the same condition as received; normal wear and tear excepted. Lessee is responsible for the removal of all garbage and refuse accumulated during the lease period and taken to the Hinsdale County Disposal site on highway 149 north of town approximately 3 mintues from the property." The reviewer initialed and signed his name he understood this clause prior the reservation ever being booked and before any money changed hands. The cleaning clause means exactly what it says (re-making the beds is not required). Each Lessee must remember this is my home, not a motel or lodge; therefore the property should be returned in the same condition as received and as if the Lessee were expecting guests at his own home. Further, I'm not aware of any town or public sanitation site that provides free garbage disposal service.
If you want a vacation rental within walking distance of town, with nice nature trails alongside the river, this is the place for you. This large home has all the conveniences, including wireless, so you can check your email away from home and plan your day with information about trails and weather :-) The kitchen was large and there was plenty of seating. The beds were comfortable. Everyone in my family could enjoy their privacy and space in this excellent rental. A big plus was that I was able to bring my dog on the trip. Thanks, Steve!
We stayed from June 5th - June 13th 2010. Awesome cabin located on the East side of the river. The cabin was clean and in order. The kitchen is great with a huge island. The new nature trail leads down to the river and you can either walk into town or north to the grocery store or bakery. Great location and two fantastic decks! I have been coming up to lake City for 20 years and this is by far the best value. The owner is very helpful and available anytime we called. We fished up on spring pass and later in the week big blue. The alpine loop is a must for me anytime I visit. Great cabin and price, I would highly recommend.
We spent 10 weeks in this house this summer July through September 17, 2009, and we can assure anyone that the place lives great. The kitchen is extremely functional and, as advertised, everything needed is there. When we arrived, the house was exceptionally clean. My wife really appreciated that. We had a lot of company this summer, and there is plenty of room with plenty of good beds. We were able to set up our horseshoes in the back and play a game or two while having a late evening campfire in the fire ring. It was very relaxing to bring some of the deck chairs down and kick back by the fire while watching the stars. The air is so clear that the stars seem to be right on top of you. The property is ideally located with the nature trail being right beside the house. It is a 5-10 min.walk to town(3-4 min. by bike). The river is just out back, and yes there are trout in the river. The grocery store is only 4-5 blocks away, as is a gas station, the post office and Dan's Fly Shop. The resident neighbors are very acommodating and the neighborhood is very quiet, Saving the best for last, in a man's opinion, the deck is awsome! I can't count how many hours we spent on the deck in the evenings, and being covered, it is a great place to hang out when it rains. Thanks for a tremendous summer. We think your place is the best value in Lake City. We definitely will be back. Sincerely, Ronnie Tomlinson
We went to this cabin in early Fall and really enjoyed our stay here. The place was cozy and clean and had all amenities one could wish for. We saw deer coming right up to the house a few times even though we had a couple of dogs with us - they just stared at each other through the fence around the balcony. The riverwalk is conveniently accessible right from the house. The whole town was very quiet, and the town people were very friendly. The scenery everywhere around here is breathtaking, and the fall colors were spectacular! Definitely a vacation spot to highly recommend.
