A COZY CHALET? OR A GORGEOUS HOME IN THE MOUNTAINS

Wow! -- THIS WAS AWESOME! We would absolutely recommend staying in this lovely home. What an amazing trip we had to Crested Butte and this beautifully restored historic-yet-modern home. This "chalet" is nothing less than gorgeous - right in the middle of the quaint town within walking distance to everything necessary. And the views were breath-taking, to say the least. For me the best part of our family's trip was "our" beautiful home. The master bedroom & bathroom are so spacious, removed (being on the 2nd floor), and tastefully done. My kids all reported that their bedrooms were cozy and very comfortable. The lush antique furniture blends in well with other furnishings which were obviously purchased from all over the world. The kitchen is gourmet and has fantastic cooking equipment/ utensils. All I needed was the food and we were set for the week.
It snowed 3 feet (!) the week we were there, and although it was cool outside, we were all perfectly comfortable inside (esp. when near either of the home's two fireplaces). I didn't use the big outside hot tub, but our kids loved it. The snowflakes falling on their heads as I gave them hot cocoa was a treat for all of us. Very magical. The whole family and a couple family friends loved every minute of it.
Also, the media room was a nice bonus, since we hadn't realized it was a part of the package (it was stocked with all sorts of video games and DVDs). A great sound system that can play throughout the house and the basement, the ping-pong tables, and the two steam showers had everyone in our group blissfully content during the entire stay. And then there was the wonderful, uncrowded skiing.... Perfecto!
Our family will be back next year and for years to come. It was the best ski trip we've ever taken in the loveliest home in which I've stayed. What a first rate Thanksgiving this was!
