Overview

Crested Butte House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 6-7)

Our house is in the heart of Crested Butte's historic district. It was built in the early 1900’s however, we lovingly restored it over the last year, reusing materials and preserving it's quirky charm. The floors have a patina developed over almost 100 years, yet we've plugged the old windy holes that gave the old miners a chill.

After a long day of skiing you can soothe your aches and pains in the claw foot tub or run upstairs and take a quick steam shower. When you return from dinner on the town you will enjoy the radiant floor heating and can switch on the old gas fireplace. The bedrooms have great views of Gothic, Mt Crested Butte, Mt Emmons and the Bench where Crested Buttes beloved Coal was mined.

Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte:: Crested Butte has been the family vacation landing pad since my brother started working here over 20 years ago. We grew up in Colorado and as kids ran around Breckenridge like Huckleberry Finn. Crested Butte reminds me of that care free time and kids can still ride their bikes and roam around town like kids should. If you know it you know and love skiing, mountain biking, fly fishing, hiking, Nordic skiing, wildflowers, food the 4th of July and the list goes on.

The Unique Benefits at this House:: Year Purchased: 2005 - You don't need a car in Crested Butte and when you are staying at our place you really don't need a car. It is also a great place that contributes to the postcard feeling of town. You'll be really comfortable with modern amenities, but still connect with Crested Buttes old time spirit.

Owner Description/Comments: : We are a family of three with a large extended family. Kate is working on her Phd, Daniel works in Real Estate (this was his favorite project) and Margaret is working on her ABC's. We love to cook a big meal and then stuff the nephews, brothers, sisters and grandparents in bed.

Cozy and Clean House in Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in Crested Butte in early June and thoroughly enjoyed this house. It was impeccably clean, no pets, and was in a great location. It backs up onto Elk street (CB's main street) so everything you need or want is just a quick walk away.

The only downside is that it occasionally got loud when the bars on Elk closed, but that's a bit of a price you pay for the location.

The house itself is cozy and charming and is perfect for a family or two couples (there's one master downstairs and the upstairs can function easily as a master as well). The kitchen was well equipped with modern appliances and a gas range.

Highly recommended - Hopefully we'll be back soon!

Charming home, in a great location!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week here over Christmas with another couple and had such a lovely time. This house so charming! The upgrades in the kitchen made it a joy to cook in. The bedrooms were not huge, but definitely enough space. The beds were warm and comfy. The bathrooms were clean and the enclosed showers were awesome after a day of boarding. The comfy couches and electric stove made the living room a cozy place to relax, watch TV, and play games after a long day on the mountain. Speaking of the mountain..... the mountain shuttle is right out the back door! Also out your back door is Elk Street.You are steps for great restaurants, shops, and bars. We had such a great time we can't wait to come back and will definitely try to stay here again!

The most amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We can not stop thinking about this house! It is amazing. SO, SO, SO comfortable! The beds were the best! Our entire group had the most wonderful afternoon naps in these cozy beds. Lots of extra comforters and pillows for everyone. The location is the best you can get. Smack in the middle of town. Walk out the back door and you are there - in the heart of it all. This place is extremely spacious. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and we had more than enough room for everyone to have their own space. In fact, the kids adored the house. The ammenties are very modern. Wonderful kitchen with tons of supplies. The bathroom showers were incredible. I can not say enough about this house. We had the privilege of meeting the owners while we were there. They are extremely friendly and helpful. They will get you anyhting you need. We would love to come back and stay in this house again!

Great House - Great Location

  • 5 of 5
I have been to CB several times and this house is in the best location. Walk out the back door and it is a very short walk to the bus station where you can catch the bus to the mountain. You are literally right behind the heart of the shops and restaurants on Elk.

The house has tons of character. It has a perfectly charming, rustic, mountain feel. Baths and kitchen were recently updated so it also has modern luxuries.

A Christmas to Remember

  • 5 of 5
The moment I stepped into this house, I loved it! Our family of six adults and a 17 month old spent a wonderful week relaxing in this comfortable house during the Christmas holidays. Located a short walk from shopping and dining as well as the bus stop for the ski shuttle made this house perfect for us. We were concerned about possible draftiness but our fears were completely unfounded. The house was comfortably warm due to the gas stove in the living area and the radiant heating. Even the warmed-tile bathroom floors welcomed our feet after a steam shower or a hot bath in the iron bathtub. The kitchen was fully furnished with ample cookware and serveware and a modestly stocked pantry provided common spices and staples and other baking needs. All of the appliances appeared brand new with the convection oven/four-burner with griddle gas range being the most helpful while cooking for my family. The owners kindly provided a high chair for our grand-daughter.

We were blessed with a few days of amazing snowfall which we could watch through the large windows. The windows in every room provided beautiful views of the town or mountain. Very peaceful. The house was spotless on arrival and had plenty of fresh towels and extra linens as well as a large capacity washer and dryer for maintaining clean laundry. I loved this house because, although it has a rustic feel, it is very modern in what is provides from the heating system to the bathroom fixtures. The water heater provided plenty of hot water for our group and all of our needs. The house is decorated simply with a fresh feel and is light and bright, and inviting. Although there are no dressers in the upstairs bedrooms, the shelved closets allow for folded or hanged clothing and storage space for luggage. I agree that this is the best use of the space upstairs. The door locks and window locks provided for sufficient security.

This property was accurately described in both word and pictures. All inquiries were answered promptly and I would recommend this property to anyone who would like to experience Crested Butte's beauty and quaintness. I would definitely stay at this property again. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners upon our departure and were impressed with their interest in our stay realizing that they are striving to make this house the best that it can be for the next renter. I am glad to say that our first rental experience with VRBO was a very positive experience.

Car: not necessary

We are downtown, one block off of Elk Avenue(the main street) in the historic part of town. You don't need a car when staying at our place. The bus to the ski mountain is three houses away at the 1800 town hall and all of the best restaurants and shops are within a two to three block radius.

Other Activities: Crested Butte is a wonderful place with lots of options. We love to go cross country skiing. The nordic center is about a block away. There are lot's of free and paid trails that are groomed. Children under twelve get rental equipment free at the Nordic Center. Of course we love to downhill ski! Crested Butte offers some of the best extreme, intermediate and beginner terrain in the country. Summers are even better! You can really enjoy our yard and the beautiful days and evenings. We have been on the garden tour and spend a lot of time choosing plants that will thrive in the mountains. You can also enjoy, mountain biking, hiking, ballooning, fly fishing, birding, wildflower tours, summer concerts, plays, music and fireworks.

Golf: We have two fabulous and very different clubs in the area. Dos Rios in Gunnison is a hometown course that has you driving across the Gunnison River(A true water hazard). It is in the cottonwoods and has a friendly course and poeple.

Skyland is truly a singular place to golf. The views are stunning and the course is one of the premier venues in the country. It is a Robert Trent Jones course sure to challenge the most seasoned golfers.

Ski: We have Mt Crested Butte clearly one of the premier skiing destinations in North America. You can also really enjoy the Nordic trails around Crested Butte. There are miles and miles of scenic and groomed trails. Another wonderful way to enjoy the winter!
