Questions about fly fishing
Gunnison Fish &
Raft is one of the few outfitters that helps you make your stay complete. We can recommend a number of accomodations depending on your needs and wishes. Please feel free to call for options. Below are a few we suggest:
Almont Resort is located at 8,026 feet in the heart
of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado between Gunnison & Crested Butte.
The East & Taylor Rivers meet outside the cabin doors to form the
headwaters of the mighty Gunnison River. Most of the 15 cabins and 4 vacation
homes are riverfront or very close to the water. They accommodate couples,
families, corporate retreats and other larger groups.
Duck Pond Cottage is a very comfortable, fully equipped home. Two queen
bedrooms, two full baths, and a sleeping loft (ladder access) with two
twin beds. Private pond, large front deck, beautiful yard, all perfect
for relaxing. Just bring your clothes, recreation gear and expectations,
you won't be disappointed. Located within sight of the Gunnison National
Forest and West Elk Wilderness. Close enough to Gunnison to be convenient
but far enough out to give you the escape you deserve.
Gunnison River Lodge
This fully furnished vacation home features 2 large stone fireplaces located on the upper and lower levels; upper and lower level decks overlooking the river; open floor plan living/dining area with beamed cathedral ceilings for your comfort and entertaining; fully equipped/modern kitchen; large den with game, pool table, organ, and piano; 4 furnished bedrooms accommodating 10 people comfortably; 3 bathrooms; laundry room with washer/dryer; cable television, high definition large screen television; and high-speed internet. The home can accommodate two additional guests (for a total of 12) with our rollaway beds. There is plenty of room for two vehicles and all your gear in the oversized two car garage.
Island Acres Resort
Nestled between two forks of the Gunnison River in
a quiet neighborhood. You will be in one of seven log clad buildings located
on a heavily treed 3.2 acres. With only 22 guest rooms, you will have
plenty of space for grilling and picnicking, outdoor activities or reading
a book in the shade of one of our 100 year old trees. Many of our rooms
feature full kitchens and dining areas, both indoors and out. Great for
extending that vacation budget or for people with food allergies. We are
within easy walking distance to public access to the river. In the evenings,
sit out on the porch or enjoy roasting marshmallows in a fire ring or
star gaze while enjoying the fresh mountain air.
