About Marc J. Solari
Hello, My name is Marc J. Solari and I have lived in Crested Butte for 25 years. I just love this place. Everything I like to do in the mountains, on the rivers and in the lakes is in close proximity and easily accessible. Living in a small resort town, I have had an opportunity to work in several different fields. I have been a construction worker, landscaper, bartender, waiter, teacher, guide and I even worked as a distributor for wine, beer and spirits. Recently I was very fortunate to find my home located in Glacier Lily Estates. Now I am guiding and trying my hand at vacation rentals. So far it has worked out exceptionally well. Everyone that has stayed at my home has had nothing but wonderful comments and moments of disbelief as to how incredible their stay has been. I am considering these results an immediate success, but I am not stopping there. I am constantly upgrading my home, its amenities and my abilities as a caretaker to offer the most comfortable vacation rental experience in Crested Butte.
Marc J. Solari purchased this House in 2008
Why Marc J. Solari chose Crested Butte
Crested Butte offers so much for the outdoor enthusiast. There is an incredible amount of National Forest and Wilderness within close proximity to Crested Butte. In fact, trailheads to many mountain bike and hiking trails are right out the front door of my home. In the winter, the ski area is within view and only 3 short minutes drive from my home. You can just peek out the windows, see which lifts are running, what the skier traffic is like and hit the slopes. If you are not in the mood for lift serviced skiing, there are snowmobile trailheads nearby and a groomed cross country trail less than 300 meters away. In the summer, several different mountain biking options are right out the door and the garage is a great place to throw a quick tune on your bike. If you are a hiker, you can walk across the street and access the recreation path that links the two towns with several hiking trails. If a scenic drive is what you are craving, take a left out of Glacier Lily Estates and drive the Gothic loop over Paradise Divide and back to the house. This is a beautiful drive and a great way to spend a day. Tennis anyone? There is a private tennis court 50 meters from the home. There is good fishing within a mile of the house and larger rivers are less than 3 miles away. If the group is interested in rafting or kayaking, drive to Almont and enjoy a day floating the Taylor or Gunnison River. The local outfitters and guides are professional and well trained. Whether you are into whitewater, flat water or float fishing, the guides of the Gunnison Country will hook you up!
What makes this House unique
One of the most special events of the day begins when you wake up and look out one of the enormous picture windows and see the colors of the sunrise lighting the magnificent mountain peaks. The timer on the automatic coffee pot has started and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee fills the home calling you to the kitchen. As you curl up in a leather recliner with a fresh cup, reading one of the local papers, a fox strolls across the open field and you know that no matter what activities you choose for your day you won't have to fight traffic or go far to enjoy them!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Amazing property! Upon arrival and settling in to the home one immediately begins to exhale and relax. The views from any vantage point in the home are absolutely breathtaking. The upstairs master suite provides privacy with a stunning view from strategically positioned windows— over the bed, overlooking all the fields and mountains. While preparing for a day of adventure, your view from the vanity area is the Crested Butte mountain resort area. Outside the master suite upstairs is a lovely loft reading area with its own stunning views!
The kitchen is perfectly equipped for exquisite
meals! Every gadget or tool needed was available— toaster, grater, coffee pot & grinder, blender, mixer, gas to range and electric oven........ The gas grill on the deck provided an additional menu option for our group!!
Meal preparation in the kitchen was a fun adventure for all in our group. The kitchen area also has breathtaking views and is positioned perfectly in the home for interaction with friends or family in one of the two dining areas, living room or deck!! Every cooks dream!

Crested Butte “The Lily” Stay
The property is beautiful and located in the scenic mountain area of Crested Butte, Colorado. We enjoyed our stay very much and found the owner wonderful to work with.
Great weekend away
The property is in a great location between the resort and the town Unfortunately the weather was so cold that we decided to stay in both nights and couldn't enjoy the town, but the house was very comfortable with a great layout for groups. There were plenty of linens and the beds were very comfortable, as well as a greatly stocked kitchen. Had a great weekend with my co-workers!
