A country experience which invites those seeking the peace and tranquility of natures' intention. Historically located near ranches and farmlands while embracing the beauty of surrounding landscapes of mountain ranges and their hidden lakes.
This first Gunnison home with running water and electricity dates back to 1878 when this part of the old West was at the edge of an unchartered frontier. Many frontiersmen, pioneers and immigrants from far off lands traveled here and beyond in hopes of fulfilling dreams that were nurtured in their distant lands. Virgin mountains and canyons allowed access to the strong flow of streams and rivers as they mapped their course to their eventual destiny. Original inhabitants that embraced the peaceful beauty of such a reclusive paradise were the Utes and Navajo Indians, which were always a great concern for local residents and travelers. Weary travelers would stop to stay a night or two along with traveling salesmen (known as Drummers) who would set up their various products for local merchants to come and purchase for their stores in town, consequently, this historic stopping place was known as the "Sample House".
