Gunnison is almost like a step back in time but with all the modern amenities. Surrounded by a national recreation area, mountains, lakes, rivers, high-mountain sage, and acres and acres of ranchland, this southwest Colorado community seems right out of a Western movie, with a few modifications of course! The community started out as a mining supply town in the 1880s, transitioned into a ranching town with a college, and once was considered as a possible location for the state capitol.

Today, there is still the friendly, hardworking vibe of a ranching town. It’s the kind of place where you don’t feel like a tourist as much as somebody visiting the folks or a kindred spirit joining the locals for a cup of joe and a tune-up at the bike/coffee shop, attending weekly happenings at Gunnison Arts Center, dropping off kids at top-notch schools, and embracing a wealth of outdoor pursuits like golfing, camping, biking, fishing, rafting, kayaking, boating, hockey and skiing.



Live the life you want in an affordable mountain town. Gunnison Rising offers new housing at a variety of price points, including attainable housing options. This community caters to a diverse range of household types including:

  • Single-family homes

  • Spacious duplexes and triplexes
