CHARMING CABIN FOR 2 IN HISTORIC TOWN; KING BED!

Crested Butte Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Are you a couple looking for the perfect Crested Butte getaway? Our cabin has everything you will want in a Crested Butte vacation home--the perfect location plus unique character and charm. The location on Sopris Avenue is ideal--just one block to the town shuttle that takes you to the ski area, and one block off the core restaurant district of Elk Avenue, the main street in Crested Butte where you will find popular shops and restaurants. (Our location is ideally located in the core of the historic district, not on the east side of town--you simply cannot find a better location!)

Our home is part of Crested Butte's history--the front rooms were an original mining cabin built from the 1880's. It has undergone two quality renovations, the most recent of which added a sunroom, Colorado sandstone floors in the main living areas and, best of all, in-floor radiant heat.

BEDROOM: The bedroom on the main level has a comfortable, king-size, Drexel Heritage bed with a pillow-top mattress. The bed also has fine, cotton linens, down pillows and a down comforter.

KITCHEN: The bright and sunny, centrally located, kitchen includes a full-size refrigerator, Jenn-Air gas range, dishwasher, microwave and garbage disposal. We have added a coffee maker, coffee grinder, microwave oven, toaster and crock pot. The kitchen is fully equipped with utensils and cookware--everything you'll need for preparing meals. Your mealtimes become more festive when served on our colorful Fiestaware dishes.

LIVING AREA: The open floor plan includes a living area that is open to the dining room and kitchen. It is tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture and includes a wood-burning stove.

SUNROOM/Rear Entry: The most recent expansion of the home included the addition of a rear sunroom with bright windows and French doors that exit onto the backyard deck. A loveseat in this room opens up to a twin-bed to provide an additional sleeping area.

BATHROOMS: The cabin has a fully tiled bathroom with walk-in shower.

BACKYARD: The fenced back-yard is nicely landscaped and has mature cottonwood and aspen trees. Enjoy summer evenings on the deck that includes patio dining furniture and a charcoal grill. The fenced yard is ideal for pets. The rear of the property has two off-street parking spots that are accessed via an alley.

NOTE: Our cabin also has two upstairs bedrooms, but we offer special rates (listed below) to parties of 2-3 who agree to use only the main floor. (We have a separate VRBO listing offering it as a 3-bedroom--see vrbo 288820.) Note that when you rent the downstairs only, there will be no one staying upstairs. We sometimes escape to Crested Butte without our three children and believe our 'downstairs only' cabin makes the perfect getaway for couples!

We are a family of five living in Boulder, Colorado. We love to vacation in Crested Butte! In Winter, we downhill ski, Nordic ski and backcountry ski. In summer, we hike and mountain bike. Our favorite Crested Butte events are the July 4th parade and the Alley Loop Nordic Ski in February. We would be happy to answer any of your questions about activities in Crested Butte. -Mark and Leslie

Leslie purchased this cabin in 2010

We have visited Crested Butte many times over the past 20 years and just purchased Sopris Cabin in March 2010. We like being in-town for the proximity to restaurants, shops and Nordic trails. But we also downhill ski, so being close to a ski shuttle stop was important.

Our prime location in-town makes us unique! We are just half block from the main ski shuttle stop at 2nd and Elk. (There are only five shuttle stops in town, so many properties do not have this important benefit.) Another feature that we and our tenants appreciate is the king-size bed in the main-level bedroom!

PERFECT LOCATION AND BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to Crested Butte for years, but this was our first time to rent a home directly in town. The location could not have been more perfect for us. While my husband and daughter went fly-fishing every day, I was able to step out the back door and walk one block to all the shops and restaurants whenever I wanted. The home is beautiful and the perfect size for three people. You can always rent the upstairs if you bring more people. The kitchen is spacious and well stocked with dishes, cookware, silverware, utensils, and has great appliances including a gas stove, refrigerator and dishwasher (I loved the Fiestaware dishes!). Having a washer and dryer in the home was wonderful. The king bed was very comfortable and the large size of the bedroom and closet were a nice surprise. The bathroom is also large and very nice. We loved all the small extras in the home, hooks everywhere to hang things, free (and fast) internet, board games, DVD player and movies available, the tile floors which were easy to keep clean. The fenced yard was perfect for our dogs, and is shaded and beautifully landscaped. We enjoyed the patio furniture and gas grill as we cooked several evening meals. Leslie was great to work with and checked in with us to make sure things were as we expected - they were actually better than we expected! I would highly recommend Sopris Cabin. We could not have asked for a better place to stay, and can't wait to return next year.

ONE OF THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Sopris Cabin for three nights in early summer just before the hordes of people descend upon Crested Butte. It was our first-ever visit to Crested Butte.

We rented as a 1-bedroom 1 bath cabin, but it also is available as a 3BR/2BA. Upstairs was not rented and was locked-off. This means your getting the use of living space that can accommodate much more than 2 people.

The kitchen is wonderful ... spacious, well-equipped with quality appliances and quality cooking equipment (pots, pans, knives, forks, etc). The kitchen is the focal point of downstairs - centered between the dining space and a sitting area toward the rear of the home and still within conversation lines with the living room.

It's a well designed cabin. The decor and style of the cabin is a perfect blend of historic miner's cabin and recent trends.

The back yard is private, fenced and landscaped. You will not get this with all cabins. Some cabins have only a few feet of non-private yard space, some share space with unsightly homes. There is a nice deck, cast-iron patio set and high-end gas grill. Not all cabins offer these extras.

The location is also better-than-average. This cabin is located on Sopris between 2nd and 3rd. Sopris runs like Elk Ave (the hub of activity in town) and is one block over. The best businesses on Elk Ave are located between 1st and 4th street, so the cabin really is only steps to all the favorite restaurants, shopping and pubs.

Leslie, the owner, was very professional and easy to work with for booking and check-in.

The town of Crested Butte is quirky for sure, but in a good way. It looks like there is 2 dogs for every person and 3 bikes for every person. Half the cars have a bike, kayak, raft, skis or something strapped to the roof as the occupants head off to the next big outdoor adventure. The town is tucked right up in the middle of endless mountain peaks and there are a half-dozen gravel roads leading into the mountains just five minutes from the doorstep of the cabin.

EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough good things about this property. It had everything we needed, and the location cannot be beaten. It's on a quiet street, but a one minute walk to both the mountain shuttle, and the heart of Elk Street. Everything in the house worked great, and the 1-BR set-up was perfect for me and my wife. It was also plenty spacious enough for us to have friends over before dinners on Elk Street.

ALWAYS TRY TO STAY ON SOPRIS!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was all we could ever ask for. Amazing fireplace and tv area, plenty of space for games and dining at the table, fully stocked kitchen with heated floors, washer and dryer and a comfy bed! You can walk to anywhere you want in town in less than 5 minutes and Leslie has made us feel very special in our return for our 2nd annual stay so we're excited to stay again for the same weekend next year.

A GEM IN THE MOUNTAINS!

  • 5 of 5
Our first visit to Crested Butte and we were very taken with it; stunning setting & scenery, quiet slopes on the mountain, friendly people (everywhere!), and an utterly charming & character-packed 'downtown' historic area. All of this is perfectly complemented by Sopris Cabin; very comfortable & cosy, spacious, well-maintained, and carefully & tastefully furnished. It most definitely exceeded our expectations. I don't know which we enjoyed more - its proximity to Elk Avenue or its wonderfully heated floors! We're already looking for excuses to return as soon as possible.
