Please read all of the disclosures at the bottom of the listing prior to submitting a request.
This lovely home on an acre of land is located DIRECTLY in Spring Creek in Almont, Colorado and sleeps up to 12 people.
The Spring Creek Getaway has a 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom cabin as well as a detached 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom bunkhouse- both of which have been completely remodeled and newly furnished. The cabin is available for rent alone or with the bunkhouse.
This is an ideal location for the hunter, fisherman, off-road enthusiast (ATV/motorcycle/snowmobile), hiker, skier, biker, or person who just wants to relax and enjoy Mother Nature. Enjoy a cozy fire inside or a roaring fire under the stars by the river and share all the days’ adventures.
Wildflowers are in gorgeous bloom during the summer and the aspens' amazing color transition occurs in the fall. The cabin is visited with wildlife including humming birds, eagles, otters, fox, deer, elk, badgers, big horn sheep, moose, and bear.
The property features 400 ft of river front on Spring Creek to fish for brook trout or wander down to the Taylor River to catch a trophy fish. Just 15 minutes away are both the Taylor reservoir and Spring Creek reservoir or visit Blue Mesa reservoir an hour away.
Both Gunnison and the historic town of Crested Butte are located about 25 minutes away.
Mountain biking and hiking are abundant- and right from the front door!
In the fall elk and deer hunters can enjoy the easy access to area 54 and it's world class hunts. Plenty of parking for an RV/trailer and any ATV's or motorcycles.
In the winter enjoy easy access (35 minutes) to Crested Butte ski resort. If snowshoeing and cross country skiing are what you seek then enjoy walks from the cabin (snow shoe up Spring Creek which freezes over) or locate one of many trails in the area.
This getaway is one that your friends and family will want to come back year after year!

While our cleaners handle the major cleaning aspects, we appreciate the property being left in a reasonable condition so as to not add to cleaning costs.
Spring Creek is a beautiful part of Colorado and our group enjoyed being outside of town. However, we were surprised and disappointed to find out that the home only had three bedrooms, not the four bedrooms as advertised on the airbnb site. This was the first time using airbnb in over 10 countries that we were disappointed by the listing, but if you are looking for a 3 br in the woods, this may fit your needs.
I received your message that you were going to post this and did call you, but never heard back. There are two cabins to this property, the main house and the "bunk house." Due to winter and plumbing the bunk house is not in use as those pipes freeze. As well, in the main house, the washer is not usable as it is located in the part of the house that is also not well insulated. This cabin was more meant for summer and not built for winter reservations. With that being said, the owner was open to the Christmas and New Year's reservations as we were completely sold out of all other properties. I wanted to ensure that your group was very aware of the specifics behind this property and had the caretaker stop by to ensure you were good with firewood, etc. I apologize if there was something that was missed in our conversations as it is certainly not meant to be misleading. Of course, feel free to call me directly and I would be happy to speak with you over the phone. I hope you all had a great New Years and am happy you were able to visit!

About the Host, Heather
I moved from Washington State and came to just "visit" during a few ski trips. However, after a few visits, it is tough to deny the beautiful Colorado mountains, and the 60 second commute to work! We hope to share the things we love about Crested Butte with you!
