Gunnison Motel and The “Original Wildwood Resort” History
The original lodging was built in 1928 by the Chicago Mafia. The Andersons bought the property 20 years ago and immediately began making improvements. The Wildwood has been a favored lodging facility for visitors to Gunnison from all around the globe. Coloradoans and out of state visitors who come to Gunnison to fish, hunt, ski, bike, enjoy the outdoors and even work here temporarily have made the Wildwood their home away from home for over 80 years. To meet the changing desires of guests, we upgraded the motel into convenient condo efficiency units and built modern 2 and 3 bedroom cabins to economically accommadate larger parties. We now only rent a few select condo units and the new cabins. Hot Deal: Want to spend a month in Gunnison, check our rates page for special deals for 1 week, 2 weeks or a month.
