Located just south of Gunnison, Colorado, this mountain recreation and hunting land with a beautiful cabin has the ideal combination of assets for a multi-use recreation and hunting property. Comprising of 160 total acres, easy county road access, bordered by National Forest on the South, and BLM on the East, it's truly a rare offering. Being in GMU 67, the property is eligible for landowner tags in the trophy unit for Elk and Mule Deer. The property has rolling open terrain, hillsides with dense trees & meadows, and a spring adjacent to the cabin that fills a year-round pond. The cabin is recently remodeled, has solar power with battery banks, propane generator, new water well & spring (historically used for water), and comes with a large corral for horses and animals to access National Forest.
Experienced Elk and Deer hunters can understand the appeal of a 160-acre property located in a trophy Colorado Elk hunting unit. Having a contiguous 160 acres makes a property and that landowner eligible to receive landowner tags for mule deer and elk at a much higher frequency than the general public in a trophy unit. For example, there is only 18% private land ownership in GMU 67, typically a Colorado Resident will need at least 1 to possibly 3 preference points to draw an archery elk tag, and typically needing 1 preference point to draw a 1st rifle season bull tag. Landowner tags are awarded in higher frequency, guaranteeing the ability to have successful hunts from a property like this. Last year, the current owners received 4 Elk tags and 2 Mule Deer tags. Being bordered on the South and East by public lands, this property has an ideal location and base camp to access thousands of acres of high country and prime habitat.
Enjoy the comforts at home in an off-grid 1,350 square foot mountain cabin. With much of the cabin recently remodeled, the current owners have made significant improvements. In the interior they've added new wiring, bathroom counters, tile floors, new tile shower with two shower heads, new toilet, lighting, carpet in main bedroom, Rinnai tankless water heater, solar panels with battery bank backed up with a vanguard propane generator and 500-gallon tank, new water well drilled with excellent water production, and more. Mountain off-grid living at its finest. The cabin loft easily fits two queen beds and comes fully furnished. With the pull-out couch, it can easily sleep 8.
The main entrance to the cabin has a newly graveled cul-de-sac for easy entrance and exit with truck and trailer. Horse corrals set up for equine use hunting or pursuing mountain recreation in the summer, and a large 360 square foot shed easily houses UTV/ATV and other gear. A turn-key mountain recreation property with great amenities, and still only about 25 minutes from town.
