Island Acres Motel opened in the summer of 1954 to much fan-faire. Built that spring by Elmo Bevington, who later went on to develop the Monarch ski area, with a a two-part plan for the motel. He constructed the original motel using Gunnison Homes, which has nothing to do with Gunnison, Colorado but was a prefabricated kit home that a buyer purchased from a catalog through a dealer. Bevington just happened to be a Gunnison Homes dealer and offered lots for sale that surrounded the motel.
The motel was expanded in the summer of 1958 to include a duplex, probably in anticipation of the workers that the Blue Mesa Reservoir project would be bringing to the valley. While Island Acres was closed that winter, one of the Gunnison Homes buildings was lost to an unexplained fire. This building was replaced with a full log building that was produced locally. The Loc-Log plant was close to were the airport now sits. Unlike the Gunnison Homes, which seemly only sold a few buildings in the area, one can find many Loc-Log buildings throughout Gunnison, including a church.
In the early 1960’s, the owners of Island Acres moved another log building onto the property. This building originally sat on the Rippling River Ranch, located by the famous Lake City bridges. It was a part of a dude guest ranch that could accommodate up to sixty guests. The buildings were built by the ranch’s owner and his sons. This is our only building without kitchens as all the Rippling River Ranch guests were fed three meals a day by the ranch owner’s wife in their ranch house, which now sits on the north end of Gunnison.
In the 1980’s, two buildings were added on each end of the current configuration, enhancing the tourist court appearance of the motel.
Vagabond Motel, Evanston, Wyoming
The main reason I stayed at the independent Vagabond Motel in Evanston, Wyoming, is because, at $49.95 plus tax, it was ten dollars cheaper than the nearby Motel Six. It could well be the least expensive accomodation in Evanston.
My room was clean enough but could have been cleaner and definitely could have used some updating. Still, I slept soundly knowing that I was saving at least $10. If Karen had been with me we would have stayed at a nicer place, but this one is okay for those on a tight budget. My room had cable TV, air conditioning, and a bed that was okay. Pets are allowed; they have truck parking and in room coffee. Micro refrigerators and weekly rates are available.
