Car: not necessary
Crested Butte is an outdoor enthusiasts heaven as well as a relaxing escape for those wishing to get away from it all. Outdoor activities include: hiking, kayaking, fishing, fly fishing, wildflower viewing, wildlife viewing, 4x4 trails, mountain biking, horseback riding, skiing/snowboarding, back country skiing/snowboarding, snowmobile tours, ATV tours, whitewater rafting, Frisbee golf, outdoor summer concerts, and much more. During ski season the free town shuttle will stop directly in front of the property every thirty minutes and will take you to the ski resort base area. Those who are somewhat adventurous may find ways to ski out down to the base area. In the summer the free shuttle is a short hike away down to the base area. This shuttle connects you to downtown Crested Butte without driving.
Golf: Golf Crested Butte at the Crested Butte Country Club. Mt. Crested Butte looms in the background with each shot. Guests may also enjoy Dos Rios Golf Club in Gunnison. Dos Rios features 18 holes with a meandering river and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Dos Rios generally is open earlier and longer than Crested Butte Country Club due to snow conditions.
Ski: Ski Crested Butte right from the convenience of your vacation rental. The retreat is situated about 400 yards from the ski resort at Mt. Crested Butte. Some guests with intermediate skiing skills may find that they can ski directly down to the base area for a short hike to the lifts. Other guests will enjoy the free town shuttle that will pick you up in front of the retreat every 30 mintues in the winter. Our concierge can arrange for your lift tickets to be waiting for you upon arrival and can schedule VIP equipment so you and your party can be fitted for equipment in the comfort of the home...no waiting in lines at the base area! You can also arrange for your equipment to be delivered to the Retreat and our caretaker will have it all waiting for you in our ski storage area.
