We furnish a FREE 6-PERSON SKI LOCKER at the base for guests to use. This is a heated, large PRIVATE LOCKER ROOM, with a private bathroom, benches to sit & change, and boot-warmers.

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.

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!

Awesome Condo for Skiing the Butte

  • 5 of 5

We came to Crested Butte for spring break and had an awesome time staying in John and Zenia's beautiful condo!

Well maintained with beautiful views and only steps from the hot tub and bus stop. And just a 5 minute walk to the ski locker, ski lift, and liquor store.

There is also a garage to keep your car snow free when you want to head to town for dinner and shopping. We had an absolutely fabulous time and will definitely be staying here when we come back to Crested Butte!!!!!

Easy - with kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the unit with 3 kids, 9/6/and 4. At first, I was skeptical about the walk to the locker because it seemed like the Eagle's Nest is so high. But it took all of 6 minutes to get to the locker, and was a 1 min walk to the lift once the kids had all their gear on. It was super easy! And the condo was comfortable and with a really well equipped kitchen - we skied and rested our days away. We had a great time!

Very nice condo walking distance from the slopes

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. The place is nice and comfortable. We had two couples, 3 children (18 months, 2yrs, 5yrs) and our dog with all comfortable. Locker at the mountain is a very nice extra. The walk is about 10 minutes and without your gear is a perfect warm up before hitting the slopes. Owners are very accommodating!

One of the best vacation rentals we have booked!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you see online is truly what this cozy condo offers, and more. For a family of five of us, we had more than enough space to sleep, eat, play games and enjoy breathtaking views from the windows.

John and Zenia have been soooo super helpful and responsive whenever I had questions leading up to our stay, and they were very accommodating.

This vacation was to enjoy the skiing and Crested Butte and it's now one of our favorite places to ski. The condo is located 5 minutes from the base of the mountain, and with the use of a heated ski locker to house all our gear, it couldn't be more convenient. John and Zenia thought of everything!

The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. I would highly recommend staying here. As well, there is a great crockpot in case you do what we did most nights…make our meal in the morning in the crockpot, leave for a day of skiing, come back to a meal that's ready to go.

As for transportation, we also highly recommend using Specialty Services instead of renting a car if you are planning on a ski trip. They picked us up at the Gunnison airport, let us stop at the grocery store to get what we needed for the week, then on to the condo. Perfect. We also used them for trips to the little town of Crested Butte which is about 5-10 minutes away. We used Black Tie Ski Rentals for that service and they come to the condo to fit you for skis, versus having to wait in line at the base to get your gear.

Overall, this was a wonderful vacation, jam-packed with great memories my family will treasure for years to come. We thank you, John and Zenia for providing such a convenient, clean, comfortable and beautiful place for us to stay.

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!

Mt. Crested Butte
Car: not necessary

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. Email or call us for anything you're interested in which may not be listed here--we're here to help make your vacation unforgettable!
