“The Bunkhouse”

Nestled between the Uncompaghre River and the 13 acre private Lake Nohomussit is the Double Diamond River Ranch’s Bunkhouse. The 900 sq. ft. Bunkhouse was converted from a calving shed into a “man cave” using materials found on the ranch. The stone floors, farm-weathered wood walls, and tin ceiling combined with a eclectic mixture of fixtures of the 1950’s and 60’s will bring you back to a quieter, simpler time.

The antique hunting, fishing, trapping, and ranching memorabilia will entrance you for hours as you reminisce your childhood hunt and fish camps. Our books cover what interests us most: hunting, fishing, trapping, etx. If you are really interested you can find some of the antique lures, traps, and decoys displayed in the bunkhouse in these books. The taxidermy showcases some of the animals harvested on the ranch and will get you dreaming of the season at hand.

If you are worried about getting lodging for your entire party we can solve that. The Bunkhouse sleeps eight comfortably with its two sets of bunk beds, fold-out full-size Murphy bed, a queen size fold out sleeper, and a queen size bed in the back room. If you want to sleep on the covered front porch or under the starts there are army cots available. Four recliner chairs surround an old army potbelly stove (reportedly it was originally just up the street at Fort Crawford during the early Ute Indian days), you will be so comfortable you may just grab a good book, an elk blanket, and “camp out” for the night.

There is a full kitchen with stocked cupboards and a refrigerator so that, if you are so inclined, you can relax and cook in private instead of driving into town for meals. Special requests for food and non-alcoholic drinks can be made in advance of your stay to eliminate a trip to the grocery store.

Our fully equipped bathroom has a sink; vanity mirror, for those of you who need a little preening; standard toilet; claw foot tub, with a hand shower; as well as a washer and dryer.

On warm nights the stone porch is set up for group gatherings, complete with tables, chairs, and fire pit. It is perfect for sitting around after days of adventure to relax and talk about the fish you caught in the past, the fish of the day, and the fish that got away.
