Wow! A Much Needed Respite in a Magical Place

It has taken me a little while to get to writing this review, but I still dream about this beautiful place. My husband and I own a bed and breakfast in Crested Butte, Colorado and this was a much needed respite after the bustle of the winter ski season and before the busy summer season arrived. We were also expecting our first child (a little boy born August 21st, which is why it has taken me so long to write this!) and so this was a great getaway before his arrival. What a wonderful, quiet retreat along Oak Creek. It was simply divine. The home was warm and inviting (and super clean!) with all the special touches of someone who really cares about their guests. The great room was so lovely and spacious with comfortable sofas to lounge on and watch movies. A huge kitchen for all your cooking needs. The master bedroom was unbelievable where you could open the windows in the evening and hear the creek or if chilly, a beautiful fireplace to watch the flickering flames from the bed. The bathroom was equally lovely with steam shower, huge soaking tub, and PLENTY of closet space. We stayed for three weeks and loved the proximity to hiking trails as well as the beautiful view of Cathedral Rock (which we didn't even realize was right there until we woke up the first morning since we had arrived late at night!) My husband had proposed to me there, so it only added to the magic of this home for us. The owners are so sweet and helpful, without being intrusive at all. A wonderful book collection and washer and dryer so we could have clean clothes during our stay were great! And oh the gorgeous gardens! And the swing out back- every afternoon I would sit on the swing with a book and look at the roses and listen to the creek- simply MAGICAL! We will definitely be back.
