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.
