This is the 4th time that we have stayed at Island Acres and if we can we plan on always staying their when we head up to Gunnison (we live in Denver).
Great Location – Its just mile outside of town but what my Husband loves is that it’s right across Hwy 50 to the trail head of “Heart Man Rocks” (Mountain biking and 4 wheeling). What I love is that it’s just far enough outside of town that it’s super quite and peaceful. They only have 24 rooms but a great open space for camp fires, grilling or just letting the kids run around. Also if we want to head to Crested Butte it’s a very pretty 25 minute drive.
Clean rooms – I think that the place was built around the 50s and it reminds me of what you would have seen in an old movie but they have done a great job of updating while keeping the cute 50s charm. The rooms have always been very clean and well kept and the beds are nice and comfy.
Local owners- I like the idea that this a Mom and Pop place and not a big chain. Every time we have been the owners (normally running the front desk) have been super nice. They have grills they let you use, have given great recommendation on where to eat, what to do and where to go. One time when we were up in late fall the owner clued me in on the Big Sales that were going on at the local shops – now that’s service!
