Michelle's apartment is great! Everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped, the bedrooms are a nice size, and the house is just a few minutes drive from town. Communication with Michelle prior to our stay was clear and timely. Michelle is a terrific and thoughtful host!

My husband, our 3.5-year-old son and I stayed at Michelle's to mountain bike Hartman Rocks, which is right up the road. Michelle's was kid heaven! The grassy backyard has a bridge over the irrigation canal (where my son and I floated toy boats) that leads to more grass and a chicken coup. Another bridge over an arm of the Gunnison leads to the main river and the whitewater park, which offered hours of entertainment for my son (rock throwing, beaches, rapids to watch). We have an electric bike with a kid seat, so we rode that to town to eat and check out the High Alpine Brewery (loved it). So really we didn't need a car the entire stay. My son would have been happy never leaving the property for three days. The outdoor patio above the backyard is a great place to hang out. Inside, the kitchen is light and bright. The two rooms were comfortable and the bathroom had a tub, which is great for kids. The cieling fan keeps things cool, and the place has lots of windows to get fresh air and sounds of the river.

Glad you enjoyed our "space", Tess! Seeing you guys enjoy the backyard took me back to when my kids were little and floated their own boats, fished, and played in all the 'water' available! The whitewater park is one of my favorite things! If you come back try a raft trip! They take out right there behind our house!

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!
