To the owner of “213 on 3rd” ,
As the mother of the “Clan” who rented your place in Crested Butte, I want to tell you what a wonderful time we had while staying there between Aug. 4-9. Our married children gather every other year…they come in from Alaska, North Carolina, and Minnesota….and, of course, the Locals from Crested Butte. We had 16 people there now that the Grandchildren are college age and a set of twins age 6.
Everyone liked the facility. We had the good fortune to have had the beautiful bedroom to the right as you come in…..how interesting with the old logs.
Each family takes a turn for cooking dinner…there were no complaints about the kitchen utensils, etc. It is such a nice arrangement connecting to the open sitting room…we loved the big table.
The surrounding creek certainly added to charm.
And the walking distance to Elk Ave. kept up all with something to do when not biking or hiking.
We just want to say a big “thank you” …and we
Especially appreciated how very clean it was all over. B Be assured we will pass our good time on to our Minnesota friends who also gather with their families in large homes like yours. ……………Marilyn
My husband and I moved to Crested Butte to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We came for the winters and stayed for the summers. We love the casual relaxed atmosphere of our mountain village. We ran this property as a Bed and Breakfast for 15 years so we have made all amenities with the perfect vacation in mind. We have had so much fun living here, hiking, biking and skiing and love to have visitors enjoy the house and town. Let us know what we can do to make your stay more enjoyable and we will take care of it.
