With all new furnishings, upgraded kitchen and bath, state-of-the-art home entertainment system, luxurious bed linens, towels, hot-tub access and attached garage, your comfort is foremost at our home!

Enjoy completely unobstructed and unparalleled views of Mt. Crested Butte, the ski area and the surrounding East River Valley from two private decks or by nestling next to a roaring fire in front of our picture windows.

Super-easy access to slopes and ski lifts--go out the front door, walk down a road toward the base area and across a picturesque bridge, an you're at the slopes in the blink of an eye. We furnish a FREE 6-PERSON SKI LOCKER at the base for guests to use. All manner of restaurants and shopping in downtown Crested Butte accessed via our free shuttle that runs every 15 minutes, 20 steps outside our door.

Luxurious Living Room, Dining and Kitchen: Upon entering this unit you realize that all townhomes are not created equal. The open floor plan insures that everyone is part of the action. On the main floor you will find a stunning kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances fully equipped to fix the smallest of snacks or the largest of meals. The antique farm table has plenty of room for everyone to enjoy a meal family style or to play one of the many board games provided in the condo.

Step into the living area and enjoy a movie on our home entertainment system which includes a 46' flatscreen TV, surround-sound and Blue Ray player. Or plug in your iPod into our docking station, throw a log on the wood-burning fireplace and enjoy the best views on the mountain from our picture window and your private deck!

One more level up there is a 3rd bedroom with twin beds which can be reconfigured into a king bed using our mattress connector if desired.

HOT TUB: For relaxation, take 20 steps out your front door and soak those aching muscles in the large hot tub after a day on the slopes or hiking one of our many trails.

Free shuttle bus: Every few minutes the free shuttle bus stops at our complex and will take you to any/all the nearby shops, restaurants and attractions nearby, including the ski slopes if you don't want to walk.

About John Ferguson or Zenia Tata

We are avid travelers, hikers, skiers and scuba divers who are always looking for our next international adventure. After traveling and working in multiple countries on five continents we look forward to coming back again and again to Crested Butte. In our opinion, there is no place--anywhere--that measures up to Crested Butte! We have been visiting CB together for 14 years, multiple times a year and we hope to be able to get our jobs to the point that we can work remotely and live here full time.

When you get here you will immediately see why Crested Butte ranked top 10 on many magazine's best places to live and play in America, why it is also called the 'last great ski town in America' and why the locals--and we too-- simply call it 'paradise'. Come share our home and sample a slice of heaven!

John Ferguson or Zenia Tata purchased this townhome in 2008

Why John Ferguson or Zenia Tata chose Crested Butte

John is from Colorado and the first time he visited CB was when he was 12 years old on a family fishing trip. He remembers looking out the car window and thinking that this was the most beautiful valley he had ever seen when driving to Crested Butte. A few decades later we feel the same way every single time we drive through the valley to come up to our home in Mt. Crested Butte.

Zenia is from India and the minute John brought her to Crested Butte she fell in love with it (and John) and that was 14 years ago! We both continue to be in love with CB (and each other) ever since.

When we decided to buy a home here, we looked at about 50 properties in different parts of Crested Butte and settled on this one for three reasons: (1) it has the BEST view of any other condo on the mountain, and even though we sit perched up high above busier areas, everything is very close by foot or the public shuttle so you don’t always have to use your car (2) The interior was recently completely remodeled with natural stone, upgraded amenities and custom painting, (3) This is not a condo but a real home with an attached garage, laundry room, and two private decks which makes it feel much more like a private residence rather than living in a condo or apartment complex.

What makes this townhome unique

We love the outdoors and we are close to it ALL up here in Mt. Crested Butte. We love the sweeping views from our decks, the countless hummingbirds which visit our feeders in the summer, and sitting in the hot tub during winter snow storms!. We have many local friends and love going to town for dinner, movies, art galleries, plays and music. The historic town of CB is just five minutes away by car or the free shuttle bus which runs every 20 minutes to/from our condo, the base area, and the town of CB. Minutes away by foot, you can take part in all the activities at the base area & ski village, yet live and sleep in a comfortable spot that is quiet and private, since we are perched above the ski village itself. For skiers, we are only a 5 minute stroll to the slopes--much more convenient than many so-called 'ski in, ski out' properties which are actually farther from the slopes and awkward to 'ski' to/from. AND, very important to our skiing guests, we provide a free 6-person ski locker right at the Base Area, a few steps from the lifts, to store the whole family's skis, boots, poles, etc. Don't lug your stuff around--leave everything there so it will be warm and dry for you the next morning!

We have gone out of our way to make our home comfortable for you and we are always looking for ways to improve your rental experience. We want you, your friends and your family to come back again and again and hopefully you will see improvements and changes each time you return.

Call us at anytime with questions about restaurants, skiing, hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, plays, shops, quirky annual events and options for your kids, your pets, your parents, or anything else about Crested Butte. We would love to share our experiences with you and ensure that you have an amazing time in this mountain paradise. We invite your comments, suggestions and hope to see you, your family and friends year after year, in the same or different seasons!

Wonderful Crested Butte Condo

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and our dog had a great time at John and Zenia's condo at Mt. Crested Butte during our week there last month (late June). The condo had everything one could want, was immaculate, very comfortable and well furnished, and was close to everything. It is up at the mountain, but it is only a 5 minute drive into the town of Crested Butte below.
The weather was spectacular, with the wildflowers just about to peak, and the hiking and biking were excellent as always in that area. Still snow on the high peaks, but dry all around town and the ski mountain. John and Zenia are great owners who go out of their way to provide detailed information. They even called to see how everything was going.
Couldn't have been better. Would definitely stay there again- summer or winter!

Very comfortable and well-equipped condo!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was right next to Mount Crested Butte. Only a five minute walk to the slopes. The condo was very comfortable. It had enough room for all three of our kids and is much bigger than the pictures give it credit for. It was very well decorated and very nicely updated and extremely well-equipped in the kitchen!

The most convenient aspects were the garage and access to the ski locker at the mountain. That alone made the stay there much easier and comfortable. Also, only a 5 minute walk to the busses to take you into town.

John and Zenia were wonderful to rent from. We had to have ice removed from the front of the garage to get our car in, and within an hour after I called John, they had maintenance up there removing all the ice.

We have rented many properties on vrbo and homeaway and this was by far one of our favorite places. John and Zenia take wonderful care of the property.

We will be returning to their condo for any and all future trips to Crested Butte!

Lovely condo, panoramic views, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful Mount Crested Butte condo for six nights and were extremely pleased! The location is excellent. The town shuttle stops a few steps from the front door or you can walk to base within minutes. The ski locker at base was a HUGE plus, eliminating the need to carry ski gear back and forth. Might we add that the skiing was sensational, and the views from the condo were gorgeous!
The owners did a wonderful job of making sure all of our needs were met throughout our stay. The kitchen was amply stocked, the home well-furnished, the washer and dryer conveniently located in the home's basement, and firewood provided for the fireplace. In addition, many personal item amenities were available which allowed for lighter travel. It was obvious that a lot of thought went into making our stay as comfortable as possible!
The town itself and nearby Crested Butte (5-10 minute shuttle ride) were very friendly and had a variety of great restaurants to choose from. We strongly recommend staying at this beautiful ski condo in this great location, and we definitely plan to come back!

We loved staying in this beautiful condo. The building is new and the unit was very clean. All of the amenities we needed were available. It's only a five minute walk from the bus stop for the shuttle that runs to town. We would definitely stay here again

Awesome amenities, Fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a delightful time in Crested Butte and were extremely comfortable in your place! You have thought of everything to make your home pleasant and welcoming. The sleeping arrangements were perfect for all 6 of us. We appreciated all of the thoughtful amenities throughout the home and especially the kitchen (even a new crock pot upon our request)! Great walking access to Mt. Crested Butte and an easy drive into town or to any hiking/fishing/biking destination of your choosing.

We are approximately 35 minutes away from the Gunnison regional airport. You can rent a car in Gunnison or catch a free or paid shuttle to Crested Butte. The ski area is 3 miles from the town of CB, and 2-3 mins from our home. Mountains, rivers, lakes abound. The local golf course was voted the top mountain golf course in the country. Limitless hiking, fishing, biking, walking, scenic drives and other leisure activities. Ask anyone who's visited Crested Butte: It's truly one of the last pristine and authentic mountain towns of the Old West, having wisely eluded the crowds, commercialism and unpleasant influences that characterize some of the larger resorts in Colorado and other western states.. Our home sits high on the hillside directly across from the ski area itself, allowing unobstructed views of the iconic Mt. Crested Butte, the ski slopes, the village below, and the beautiful surrounding mountains and valleys. If you bring or rent a car, you can be anywhere in the CB area in minutes. And, a free shuttle system connecting Mt CB where our home is (and the ski area) to the town of CB conveniently runs every few minutes. The shuttle runs from our townhome to the base area/slopes every few minutes as well. Hop on and you're slope-side or in town in a flash. Or, just walk out our front door and across a bridge that crosses the main road and you're at the lifts in no time! There's and 'Adventure Center' at the base of the ski area for children & teenagers, with a climbing wall, putt-putt golf course, bungee-trampoline jump, day care center and more. The ski lifts take bike riders and their bikes up in the summer. A Frisbee Golf course is also on Mt. CB.

Other Activities: Hiking, mountain biking, wildflowers, fall colors, river rafting, horseback riding, scenic drives, 4-wheel touring, free summer music concerts offered in the Town and in Mt. CB. Crested Butte is truly an all season outdoor paradise. Five valleys open up from the area, providing access to hiking and biking trails, cross country skiing, and limitless rivers & lakes for fishing. The wildflowers in July are breathtaking. CB is also renowned for its golf course and access to some of the best rivers in Colorado for fishing. Want more culture? Come for our numerous summer festivals: The town’s famous 4th of July Parade & fireworks display; Crested Butte Wildflower Festival in July; Bluegrass in Paradise; Crested Butte Wine & Food Festival; a fabulously diverse Arts Festival in August; Food and Wine festival, CB Music and Dance festival; the Fall Film Festival; and top it off with the zany Vinotok celebration in late September, which really does defy explanation! There are many more, too numerous to list.

Golf: Surrounded by majestic mountains, right at the base of Mt. Crested Butte, The Club at Crested Butte features the only golf course in town -- a scenic Robert Trent Jones II, 18 hole designed course that’s rated one of the top golf courses in America and rated the “Best Mountain Golf Course” in Colorado and “one of the finest golf courses in the mountains, if not the entire country,' by Mountain Golf Magazine, This 18-hole Championship Course offers 7,200 yards of superb golf. It has a slope rating of 129 and a 72.6 USGA rating. The course features 4 sets of tees for different skill levels. Ideal setting for your golf instruction and lessons. Tennis and swimming pool on site. Call 970.349.6127 or email: The golf course is about a 10 minute drive from our property.

Ski: We are directly across the street from the ski area. You can see most lifts from our windows. Walk out our front door and stroll down a small connecting road and bridge and you're at the slopes in less time than it takes to fry an egg. Or, take the free shuttle to the ski area which runs every 15 minutes from our building and in a blink of an eye you're there. We have a 6-person ski locker and boot warmer to store all your gear. Talk about convenient! Sixteen lifts shuttle skiers and riders around 1,176 acres of terrain for all abilities and views in all directions. Overcrowding is simply unheard of and well-placed lifts make it one of the most accessible big mountains in Colorado. Crested Butte offers all the amenities you'd expect at a large ski resort in an intimate, relaxed setting. Ski school and rentals are available in the base area with packages to suit all ages and abilities. Over a half-dozen on-mountain restaurants and bars are ready to serve all types, while shoppers can easily spend hours among the dozens of base-village stores. Crested Butte skiing is open from late November through early April. For Cross-Country skiing, go to the Crested Butte Nordic Center:; call: (970) 349-1707.
