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.
Wow! What a blast! We stayed at Kate's Place with another couple and had so much fun. The master bedroom is large and cozy at the same time. We could walk to all the great places in town and the patio with the grill was perfect for a night at home. We will be back!
The house is lovely, clean, comfortable, and only one block off main street. We could walk to any shop/restaurant in only a few minutes. The master bedroom/bath upstairs made us feel like royalty--with new carpet, luxurious bedding, and fluffy towels. Downstairs is just as welcoming with a nicely stocked kitchen, lots of windows, a back deck, and a front sun room. The living room includes comfortable furniture--perfect for relaxing after a day of hiking or skiing.
Couldn't think of a better place to be. The home was conveniently located within walking distance of all the Crested Butte shops and restaurants. The kitchen and sunroom have lots of windows making them great places to greet the new day. It was clean and well kept, not easy to do during the high summer season. The three bedrooms, one with bunk beds, provide plenty of room and the master suite upstairs with a king bed encompasses the whole second floor. Will definitely stay here again.
I've been visiting Crested Butte my entire life and thoroughly enjoyed staying at Kate's Place. It was incredibly comfortable, well-kept and felt just like home from the minute we walked in the door. It was located in just the right location - close to Elk Ave but just far enough away for it to be quiet. Would 100% stay there again!
Great location. The owners have added new carpet and upgraded the home. Easy walk to all restaurants and shops. Had everything we needed for a couple (although has the ability to sleep more). I would recommend it in a heart beat. In fact I am working on renting it for 2017. Again, a beautiful home and location
Property was in excellent condition. The owners appear to have replaced and installed new carpet throughout and new beds and other items. Nice to have kitchen items available that we find not around at other properties. Great location and we would rent the property again in a heart beat. In fact we are on the list as repeat renters for 2017, so we are not telling any of our family just in case!!!. You are a very short walking distance from downtown and all of the restaurants and shops. Everything was as presented in the description....
Walking distance to shopping, great food, skiing, hiking and more. Just step outside our front door to the beauty and charm of Crested Butte.
