Kate's Place was shipped to Crested Butte piece by piece in 1922, as an original Montgomery Ward's kit home. It was erected by a local miner and built on a mountain stone foundation. The home is named after Kate Starika, who lived in the home as a widow for more than 60 years. In 1990, Kathy and Doug purchased the home and restored it's Victorian charm. The home was recognized by the Board of zoning and Architectural Review as the best example of historical renovation completed in 1990.
'We tried to maintain as much of the historical integrity as possible', said Doug, ' the renovation was a labor of love.' The interior and exterior paint and wall coverings all reflect the homes Victorian beginnings. As much of the original wood trim and flooring were retained. Beautiful leaded glass door and side panels were designed in Dallas to fit the Victorian theme. Not only does this make a statement about the home, it also makes for a charming entrance into a wonderful enclosed sun room.

Great property in the center of town! Super convenient and met everyone’s needs.
Thank you Jamie for the review. We work hard to make sure Kate's Place is fashionable, comfortable and fun. Since we spend time here ourselves we want the house to be a great experience for everyone, including our family. We travel and rent Home Away/VRBO properties too and so we have been on both sides of the review process. We hope to have you back!
Great house and perfect location
Perfect house. Clean, well equipped. We cooked all meals and kitchen was perfect. Very close to shuttle stop to slopes. Would definitely come back and stay here.
Thank you Carol for the nice review. We fell in love with the house and the location more than 30 years ago. So much fun to just walk into town or jump on the bus and not worry about a car and parking. In the summer we have a table and grill on the back deck that makes cooking at home even easier and more fun. We would love to have you back. While we love the skiing summers in CB are the best...once you try it you will be hooked!
1st time to CB
House was very nice and close and walkable to everything, Then again everything is close and walkable to everything. LOL! The house is very well equipped and appointed. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you so much for your very nice review. It is fun to stay in the historic district, one block off the main street of Elk Ave., but your right nothing in the town of CB is more that a 10 block walk or so.
We hope to have you back...Merry Christmas to you and your family and may your New Year be the best year ever!
This property is a lovely home full of light and beautifully furnished. The location is perfect and the house is well cared for and very modern. I would recommend this as a perfect place to enjoy CB and the surrounding areas.. we enjoyed our stay.
Thank you Mike. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back. We made a few improvements after your visit so the home is even better!
Wonderful place to stay!
Kate's House is fantastic. The house is comfortable, clean, charming, modern and well appointed. For most of our stay, we had two adults and a small child, although 4 adults and a child were all very comfortable. We stayed there for three weeks and started feeling like part of the community (great neighbors!). The house location is ideal and in walking distance to everything (downtown, parks, trails, etc). Working with Kate was great. When we head back to CB, we will definitely try to stay at this place.
Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay.
We do have great neighbors and they have really cute pets. We are planning a few more improvements to the house before the winter season so stay tuned as the house gets even better!
We look forward to your return.
Nice place. Clean. Excellent location.
Plenty of room, especially in the massive upstairs master -- and so many doors up there. Nice carpets and flooring and excellent renovation work [we were there in the Fall of 2017]. The fresh pink and lavender exterior was fabulous for 5 guys in town to ride mountain bikes for a week. I hope this place is available when we come back.
Walking distance to shopping, great food, skiing, hiking and more. Just step outside our front door to the beauty and charm of Crested Butte. Other Activities: Cross Country and Down Hill Skiing
