After raising 7 children in our large wonderful house, and having it empty out over the last few years, we decided to do a remodel on the "West Wing" and open it up for guests. My husband and older sons run a successful home based electrical contracting business here in town. We love to travel, but are still raising our last two boys, so more than likely we will be here while you are enjoying your stay! We've been in the valley since 1990, (both Crested Butte and Gunni) and have been involved in the community. We love Sunday afternoon football, and trips out to the lake (just 8 mile down Hwy) to enjoy fishing, boating and watersports. We can refer you to local churches, good restaurants, and things to do!
