Enjoy a stay at a 1950s throwback. Recently renovated, this 1954 tourist court motel offers vintage charm, large open parks and sunny porches. All units have kitchens. Picnic tables, grills and a firepit for a campfire are available. Because we care about guest's privacy and minimizing guest's exposure to travel fraud, we do not participate with third-party travel fare aggregators and travel metasearch engines. Therefore, this website will tell the visitor that our property has no availability when this is not true. This website will also not allow us to provide guests with our phone number or a link to our website. We know this is not convenient. Our apologies. Check our online calendar for availability, which can be accessed from our website. Our phone number and email address can also be found on our website. Our prices range from $88 to $133 plus tax for our standard units with kitchens. Our 3-bed, 3-bath cabin (sleeps up to 9) ranges from $275 to $320.

It was a great place to stay in Gunnison. It is close to town but has that country feel with a large front yard where deer come up and graze in the evening. The owners treated us like family Our cute cabin was great and very clean and comfortable. There was a separate bedroom and living room area which both had a large TV. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook in. We will definitely stay there again whenever we get back out in that area.

Richard and Vivian, Thank you for your kind words. It sounds like you had the 'new' #10. This was just remodeled last year and has been a favorite! As we continue to work through the units, we will try to replicate as many of the changes we made while keeping the important vintage features. Thank you for your continued support of Island Acres.

We've stayed here a couple of times and like the yards which provide a nice place to walk the dog. The owner is great. The unit we stayed in (#2) had a kitchen table with chairs for eating and everything we need to fix breakfast. My husband could sit outside on the chairs provided on the walkway to have his smoke and left the room smoke free. Yes, a little retro, but we like that!

Marianne, Thank you for your kind words. It is nice that that Island Acres works out well for you, your husband and your pup. And yes, we are very retro! So good that you, too, appreciate this. We do hope that our smoking accommedations work well as all of our units are non-smoking. Thank you for your continued support of Island Acres.

Vicki, Thank you for your review. For those who have stayed at Island Acres, Unit 10 underwent a major renovation this winter. While we kept the blue Formica countertops and original cabinets, we added a vintage pink fridge to the kitchen. The bathroom was completely redone. And the most significant improvement--we added a bedroom and much-improved storage! The area where the bed used to be is now a living room area. One guest even hosted a dinner party for eight in the new Unit 10!!! Thank you for your continued support of Island Acres. And for your advocacy of our property--after visiting with the two of you, the drop-ins who were just looking around decided to stay for several days!!! Guests like you are a real joy! Thank you

While the rooms are quite dated and in need of a major investment to upgrade the kitchen, bathroom, linoleum floors and fixtures, what makes this place so pleasant are the staff. They are knowledgeable, involved in cleaning and upkeep, and friendly. That being said, it is a 1950’s throwback which has its charm. It was definitely clean and safe. Kitchenette had stove, micro, frig, coffee pot and toaster. They are pet friendly and it is a great place as a base to go see the sights and hike. Enjoyed walking through the town and shopping. Highly recommend eating at The Twisted Fork and Ol’ Miner Steakhouse.

My family vacations in Colorado every June & love to stay in rooms with kitchenette for an extra homey feel. Island Acres was clean & had a great homey feel. The owner, Pam, was friendly & knowledgable about the area. We will definitely stay again!
