Crested Butte Estate Rental Photos and Description
Estate, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 4.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
An exquisite custom home close to town with total privacy, wilderness access and fantastic views - Whetstone Mountain Ranch is totally unique. There are only 3 homes on this 300 acre ranch, with trails, ponds, and private access to the Slate River and world class fishing.
This is real Colorado luxury. A 4 bedroom deluxe house with 4-1/2 baths! It is located 2 minutes from town. As you drive into Crested Butte, the golf course is on the right of the highway and the ranch is on the left, nestled underneath gorgeous aspen and pine covered mountains. There is excellent private fishing on the property - the Slate River, as well as several large ponds. I watched my brother (pictured) pull fish after fish out of the water.
The home has an extremely private master suite with a king bed, clawfoot bathtub, large walk-in shower, and exercise room that takes up one whole wing of the house.
Two additional master suite are downstairs. One has a king bed and large sitting area with couch. The other has a queen bed. The third downstairs bedroom has a queen bed with a full bath across the hall. All downstairs bedrooms have large windows and exterior doors leading to a private patio and pond. Bedrooms are beautifully furnished, with new pillow-top mattresses and down comforters.
A large great room is perfect for entertaining, with massive gas fireplace and breathtaking views. A breakfast nook off the kitchen seats 6 and overlooks the pond in the front yard. You are surrounded by lakes, aspens, horses - it's part of Whetstone Ranch - acres and acres of land filled with vistas, lakes and horses. It is all yours. The biggest lake has a campfire area complete with picnic tables and barbecue pit.
Want some privacy to ski, fish, relax and have some space in the mountains? It doesn't get any better.
In winter, you can ski or snowmobile right out the front door. Special access easements allow for recreating on adjoining private land. Summer is perfect for bikes, motorcycles, horseback riding, hiking, and fishing. It will take you 5 minutes to bike to town, 3 minutes to drive to golf.
The house is only a mile from downtown Crested Butte, with a public shuttle to the ski hill, restaurants and other amenities. Perfect for couples, families and small groups. The house and setting are truly one-of-a-kind.
Streams run thru the house - or rather, underneath it. The house is built on top of the streams, on bridges as it were.
For privacy, space and luxury, location, wilderness access and fishing, this home is absolutely unique in Crested Butte. The house is 3800 sq. ft.

Why Ted Colvin chose Crested Butte
I have been living in Crested Butte for over 35 years and enjoy sharing my love of the mountain lifestyle with others, and look forward to sharing my home with you.
What makes this estate unique
I like having enough privacy not to need curtains. I like to take off on a hike right out my back door, ride dirt bikes or snowmobiles, and let my dog Louie swim in the ponds on the ranch.
