Overview

Mount Crested Butte Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

(NOTE FOR SUMMER 2016: We are again open for summer rentals as the roof replacement project has been postponed!)

WELCOME TO CRESTED BUTTE, the last of Colorado's great ski towns! Here you'll find uncrowded, world class ski slopes and delightful Victorian architecture. CB is known for its gourmet restaurants, shops, and cozy pubs featuring nightly entertainment. In the winter, CB is a skier's paradise. In summer, it's a mecca for hikers, mountain bikers, fishermen, and golfers drawn by its unparalled trail access and stunning scenic beauty. Unlike many ski towns, CB is a historic mining town, still much as it was 100 years ago, unspoiled by fast food outlets and chain stores. The crowds in this off-the-beaten-path location are small, and the locals are friendly and happy to see you.

While you're in CB, plan to stay in our condo in the Columbine Condo complex. Our ground floor front door is just steps away from the slopes, just above the Base Area and the high speed Silver Queen and Red Lady lifts. Skiing in or out couldn't be easier or more convenient. Come inside and take in the view of Mt. Emmons, Mt. Axtell, and Mt. Whetstone in the background, with skiers and snowboarders of every kind whiz by in the foreground. Our unit sleeps two adults in the bedroom's queen bed, and an additional two can sleep in the sofabed in the living room. The beds have down comforters. Amenities rival those of the finest hotels, even down to complimentary soap and shampoo. The condo was recently remodeled and all furniture and appliances are new.

Apres ski, indulge in a dip in the outdoor hot tub with other Columbine guests. There are also a shared steam room and outdoor gas grill. Then come home to a toasty wood fire right in your own living room. All the wood you can burn is neatly stacked outside the front door. Also included: DVD and CD players, free cable TV with HBO, and high speed wireless Internet. There is a coin-operated laundry a few steps away, in the same building. A free shuttle bus to anywhere in CB stops just outside.

Why is THIS condo so special? At first glance, the features are similar to those of many other ski vacation rentals. But what the others don't have is TRUE ski-in/ski-out convenience. Here, the front door is just a few steps from the slope. There are no stairs, elevators, or long hotel hallways to navigate while lugging skis, boots, and poles. Plus, it's just a short walk from the restaurants, shops, and nightlife of the main base area. Beware of ski-in/ski-out accommodations near the Westwall, Peachtree, Gold Link, or Prospect lifts -- they are far, far away. And another thing... Outdoor parking, right on the edge of the ski slope, right in front of the condo, is included with your rental. Even parking in the expensive VIP area of the pay lots wouldn't get you such convenience!

If you're coming in summer, the condo is perfectly positioned for quiet enjoyment and great trail access. Whether you're hiking or mountain biking, a wide-ranging trail network starts right outside your door, criss-crossing Mt. Crested Butte and going far beyond. Hike directly to the spectacular summit, or ride a chair lift up and bike down. A golden world of alpine beauty in the town they call the Wildflower Capital of Colorado will be yours.

It's easy to book our Columbine one bedroom condo. You deal directly with us, the owners. Because we don't pay a commission to a property manager, our rates are very reasonable compared to what you'll find elsewhere in Crested Butte. You can book directly through VRBO, or if you prefer we accept checks or credit card payments via PayPal. Want more information? Click the link on this page, just above the photo section, to go to our own web site with more details and lots of pictures. Ready to book? You can 'Book It Now', or simply send us an email inquiry, or call and ask for Janet or Laurie. We're very friendly and we'll be glad to answer all your questions.

Yes, we DO keep our Availability Calendar up-to-date!

Note on off-season (spring and fall) rentals: Some services like the hot tub and shuttle bus may not be available. Ski lifts will not be running, and trails may be impassable due to snow and mud.

Janet Furman purchased this condo in 2005

Why Janet Furman chose Southwestern Colorado

We discovered Crested Butte on a family road trip in the summer of 2004, and fell in love. We had visited other Colorado ski towns, but none compared with the scenic beauty, open vistas, and rustic charm of CB. Much of Colorado has scenic beauty, so that's really saying something! In summer, we loved the extensive trail system, which are equally accessible to hikers and mountain bikers. We came back that winter to experience the ski area, and possibly look at real estate. The ski area turned out to be just what we were dreaming of - big, uncrowded, plenty of varied terrain from easy groomers to challenging double-diamonds. And the snow - light, fluffy, abundant. We did look at real estate. We bought a small home and a ski-in/ski-out condo. Now we come as often as we can, staying in the home and renting out the condo. The condo has only one bedroom, but what a treat to stay there and ski right from the front door! We hope you have the chance to share our Crested Butte obsession!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Janet and Laurie,

We had a great time in Crested Butte. We loved being right there by the

slopes. Your condo was great. Thanks again for everything and maybe we'll talk

again.

Great time in a Great condo.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect condo for my son and I during our travels. Everything was there for us, and the location and view were great. The central common area with the hot tub and BBQ were quite close and made it easy to cook and relax. Highly recommended.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. Truly ski in/out. Place is immaculate and the condos are very, very well run. Owners were very responsive. Has the basics. Better tv, furniture, and kitchen stuff would bump it up to 5 stars. But really this place is about the location. Would definitely rent again.

great stay

  • 5 of 5

similar impressions to other reviewers ,decor is rather basic ,but the kitchen is well equipped ,the view is spectacular ,and the location is probably the best on the mountain (at least as far as winter sports are concerned ,not sure about biking/hiking ) ,if you ski /ride you should bring a take out from your favorite restaurant in town the night before ,and enjoy it for lunch instead of the chilli or chowder from the ski lodge ( you can even take your ski boots off before you eat )

  • 5 of 5

Amazing little place! We hit a massive snow weekend (3ft in 2days) and this could not have been a better place for that to happen. The place is small, but is all you need when you are up in the mountains. We loved the wood burning fireplace and the hot tub about 100 yards away, both were used often during the storm. We walked out the door and strapped in every day and rode nearly back to the door at the end of the day, what a great location. It snowed so hard the first two days that we never saw more than half a mile away, but when the storm moved out, we were amazed at the view from this place and the views all around the CB area. It is about the perfect little mountain town and valley.

The owners were great to work with, quickly responded to emails, and the place was well taken care of. Everything was warm and comfortable - we had no issues with the bed and really enjoyed it. The firewood was stacked out front for us and the property manager was very friendly, helpful, and on top of getting the snow cleared out.

When we weren't on the slope or down in town, we routinely found ourselves just starring out the large windows at the peaks around us and down at the valley below us - the view and location are so great. When we return to CB, this will be the first place we check availability!
