We were really happy with the Moon House on our quick (3 day) vacation in the Gunnison Valley! The house is very clean and beds are more than comfortable. The house is 5 minutes out of town on a ridge providing views of the valley. It is an less than an hour from Grand Mesa and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River. Its just over an hour to the San Juan mountains. Aspen and Snowmass are back to the east less than a 2 hour drive. A great central location to go and explore in all directions then come back relax around the fire pit and get ready for another day of exploring. We also left a couple of items at the house and Chad had them in the mail to us before we arrived back home.
Jacqueline was an amazing, gracious host. The bed was extremely warm and comfortable and the atmosphere was very peaceful. It really felt like a home away from home, so comfortable. The home is located a stone’s throw from local bars and great restaurants. PJ’s Neighborhood Pub is amazing and a must-visit for dinner. As far as activities, Black Canyon is a short drive from Jacqueline’s home. There is great winter hiking on the north and south rim. Bring your snowshoes to make the hikes a litter easier. Visit the South Rim Visitor Center and check out the overlook for breathtaking views of the canyon below. The North Rim Ranger Station is closed in the winter, but you can still hike to it (about 4 miles) and continue on to hike many of the beautiful trails. I hiked the North Vista trail to Exclamation Point and the view were spectacular! All in all, you really can’t go wrong staying at Jacqueline’s home. I hope to return in the summer or early fall to experience that part of Colorado again!
