Second time even better (if possible)!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this beautiful home. We hope to make it annual trip, since this is our favorite ski home (and we have been doing the trip for 30 years). Everything about the home is great, so it is hard to sum up in one review. Not necessarily in order, here are some of the highlights:

Location - truly a ski-in/ski-out home. Walk out the garage and a few steps to the cat track to ski down to the lift. Skiing back home is even easier. A groomed trail leading right back home.

Kitchen - All new/modern appliances that are set up for real cooking, not just to look good. The refrigerator and cabinets are stocked with the essentials, which is a rarity in a rental home.

Living Area - Wide open area adjacent to the kitchen, so plenty of room to be together with friends and family.

Bedrooms - All the bedrooms are large with comfortable beds, and most have their own private bathroom. 2 of the private bathrooms have steam showers, a big plus!

Town - Easy shuttle into town, which has a wide variety of restaurants, bars and shopping. You can eat at a high end steakhouse, or enjoy pizza and beer at a locals bar.

Ski Area - Since you are far from the I-70 corridor of Vail, Breck, etc., there are no lines and no crowds. And there is variety for any level skier or boarder. Plenty of back country, bowls and groomers, if that is your preference.

Owners - I saved the best for last. Diane is the most accommodating and friendly owner we have met in our 30 years of renting. She will do everything possible to insure you have a fun and enjoyable trip. We had an inflexible schedule for our trip this year, and she was able to make some adjustments to fit us in. Thank you! Hope to be back next year.

Beautiful Home in an Exceptional Location

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this lovely home at Crested Butte Mountain Resort! Our group consisted of two families with many teenagers and college students, and the house was a perfect fit for us. We loved having the option of coming back to the house for lunch, as it was just a quick trip down the slopes to a trail that took us directly to the driveway of the home- super convenient and easy! The house had everything that we needed, the kitchen was well stocked and the hot tub was a great treat every afternoon.

The owner was so informative and helpful during our entire stay, even going so far as to arrange a contact of hers to pick up a prescription for us back in Gunnison and bring to the home so that we didn't have to drive on a very snowy day. We would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting a luxurious and spacious home with true ski in/ski out access. Thanks again Diane for your hospitality!!

Great views, excellent place to spend time in CO

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I stayed in this home recently and it was such a great time that I'm wondering why I posted a review almost a month later. The home itself is very tastefully decorated and is nestled in a gorgeous part of the mountain with expansive views of the valley below and the hills around. Nice, quiet neighborhood with a large deck which is simply perfect for morning coffee or evening cocktails. Soaking up the views is so easy and only a few short steps away from the dining and cooking area. Speaking of the cooking area, what a treat. The range, oven and fridge are pro-grade and easily handled the cooking chores we put forth for our large group. The kitchen and bar area is perfectly suited for entertaining and cooking and keeping things social and lively. Loved it. Also enjoyed the complimentary bottles of wine that the owners left out for us. Nice touch.

The sleeping accommodations are nice and there is plenty of room for people to get a good night's rest. The master suite is of course well done, but there is plenty of room for other adults and kids too. No shortage of beds in this place.

For entertainment, the ping pong table and games are perfect. And the audio system in the house allows for some music in just about every room. TVs too, but we didn't really watch TV. If you're more into grilling and hanging out on the deck for entertainment, you will not be disappointed. The gas grill is ideally situated for good views as well as serving logistics and the deck furniture is pretty nice. The wooden captain's chairs and high-top table are super cool.

Overall the rental experience was very easy and the accommodations were perfect for an early season biking getaway trip. If you are looking for something that is an upgrade over town accommodations and has room for you and your friends to spread out and get relaxed, this is a great place to consider. Highly recommend. Have fun.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review! It was one of my first times to rent my home without actually TALKING to the prospective renter. I am so glad that you pleased! I also appreciate your follow up phone call after your rental. I love your suggestions of how to market my home more effectively and hearing what made the house work so well of your group -- stand alone ICE MAKER ? who would have thought it was such a hit! I do hope you and your group will come back to CB next year!

2nd time visitor

  • 5 of 5

I had the joy of spending the last week in March at this gorgeous mountain retreat with my daughter, son-in-law, grandchildren, and their friend's family. We filled this lovely home with laughter and fun as we turned it into our home away from home.

My son-in-law is an avid snowboarder and introduced the grandsons (ages 3 and 5) to skiing. The boys along with 3 adults in our group took advantage of the ski school offered at Mt Crested Butte. In one day they had all gained some degree of ease on the skis. By the 2nd day, the 5 yr old had actually gone up on the lift. We were all thrilled to see the entire family on skis! And it was a delight for me to make the short trip to the slopes and watch their progress.

The home itself is fabulous! It has every amenity one can imagine. Our entire party consisted of 7 adults and 5 children (ranging in age from 18 months to 5 years). We were all more than comfortable and each had privacy. We shopped for groceries in Gunnison and prepared most of our meals in the fabulous kitchen. The restaurant grade gas range is a dream to cook on! We ate several great meals in Crested Butte on the days we shopped in the quaint shops in town. Never had a bad meal! BTW, there's a great grill on the back deck for steaks! But being from the old school, I enjoyed having family dinners at the huge dining room table at the house. When we weren't eating or snacking, we had fun times playing board games with the children. (I highly recommend Pie Face. The kids and adults loved it.). The home has numerous games there but I brought some too, including Pie Face.

One night just adults went out to eat. A babysitting service from the ski school was used and she handled 5 children with ease. When we weren't skiing or eating, I took long walks around the area; played with the children in the snow; built snowmen and had snowball fights; watched the boys sledding; read a novel and rested. My son and son-in-law hit the hot tub every afternoon enjoying the hot water as snow blew on their faces. Several nights we built a roaring fire in the fireplace and watched movies.

As you can tell, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience there. Hopefully, my grandchildren will become great skiers and I can continue to visit this majestic area with my entire family. One dream I have is to return in the summer for the wildflower festival!!! Thanks for many memories that have already been made during our stays in your beautiful and gracious home!
