About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

After 7 amazing years, we have just put our home on the market and will only be taking reservations 30-60 days in advance. Guests will be asked to allow the home to be shown with 24 hours notice. Please view our listing with Chris Kopf of Bighorn Realty:

If you are looking for an elegant rustic cabin with spectacular views and a great location, look no further. Our mountain modern cabin is conveniently located on Fifth St. in the heart of Crested Butte. It is a half block from Elk Avenue (the historic main street with restaurants, bars, and shopping), just a block from the bus (offering access to lift-served mountain biking during the summer and skiing on the slopes at Crested Butte Mountain Resort--6 minutes away), and within three blocks of just about everything else you might need or want--Camp 4 Coffee, the library, groceries, ATM, movie theater, churches, Chamber of Commerce, Performing Arts Center.

Our home was recently gutted down to the rafters and four walls. Everything has been updated and built with energy efficiency in mind--from the in-floor radiant heat to insulation, chinking and new windows and doors. The remodeling project won an award from the '2008 Project of the Year' review by the Crested Butte Board of Zoning and Architectural Review!

From the minute you walk through the front door, you will feel welcome and at home with the open floor plan. The large beams and log walls tie the living, dining and kitchen spaces together, a place where friends and family can reconnect. Play cards or games in front of the stone fireplace, watch a movie on the large screen HDTV with Blu-Ray DVD player, or simply share stories after the day's adventures of biking, hiking or skiing.

The large open kitchen (with Electrolux and GE ICON stainless steel appliances) has cherry cabinets, granite countertops, and is perfect for conversation while cooking up family meals. With a big four-stool central island, everyone can join in the fun baking cookies or a pan of lasagna.

The first floor also has the Kid's Bunkroom, equipped with two single beds plus trundle. A 32' HDTV with DVD make for a great kids movie night venue (or bring along your XBOX and plug in for gaming fun). Around the corner is a half bath.

Upstairs, the open staircase leads you to the other three bedrooms, two full baths and the laundry closet with a stacked washer/dryer. Spectacular views of Mt. Crested Butte can be seen from the staircase windows and bedrooms. The master suite has a 32' HDTV, DVD/Blu-Ray player, queen bed and adjoining bathroom with Travertine marble, a glassed-in shower, double sink and jetted tub to work out those kinks after a hard day of play. A sundeck off the master provides a wonderful place to enjoy the mountain views and your morning coffee! The second bedroom has a queen bed with an HDTV and DVD player. A third bedroom has a daybed with trundle, two closets, flat screen TV and internet connected DVD/Blu-Ray player.

About The Owner

We live in Dallas and recently purchased this cabin as a lifestyle investment for our very active family of four. With two young boys, we like to stay busy and Crested Butte offers so much for us to do in the summer and the winter.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Crested Butte

We immediately fell in love with Crested Butte. The location was the perfect fit for our family as we can drive or fly from Dallas. We love the small town atmosphere and big mountain activities. Everyone is so exceptionally warm and friendly. Crested Butte truly has it all!

What makes this house unique

Great views of Mount Crested Butte.

Bus stops 1 block away.

Within walking distance of everything you need--grocery stores, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, banks, library, churches.

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5

The house was great but we were disappointed the fire place was not working. One of the benefits to renting a house in winter is getting to use a fireplace. However the house was clean, in a great location, and very spacious for our family.

A picture-perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I can't even begin to convey just how wonderful it was to rent this property! It is as stunning as the photos show, and well-appointed too. I've never had a rental that was so fully-stocked with linens (tons of towels!), paper goods, and kitchen cookware and utensils. The location was amazing--a short walk to the bus stop and Elk (with shopping and restaurants) literally around the corner. The alley next to the cabin leads directly to a wonderful coffee shop and the organic market (the grocery store is just a few blocks down 5th). Our extended family enjoyed a family vacation that we will never forget! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home.

Beautiful, clean, convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house! It is right off of the Main Street and is an easy walk to all restaurants and shops. The kitchen is top notch and has everything you would need. All rooms and bathrooms are clean and nicely updated and the beds were very comfortable. My family of 5 slept very comfortably here and we didn't even use one of the bedrooms. I would definitely recommend this home for your stay in CB!

Wonderful, comfortable home in perfect location at edge of town and close to shuttle.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a terrific week of skiing and vacationing in Crested Butte with this wonderfully comfortable, well-equipped home as our base! The house is just off Elk Avenue on the edge of town closest to the bus stops where we caught the shuttle to the slopes. Crested Butte is one of our favorite ski towns!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful home! The location was ideal being a block off of Elk Avenue (restaurants, bars, shops) and a few short blocks to the shuttle for Crested Butte ski area. We were in 6 adults and there was plenty of room for us to cook and dine together. We would definitely rent this home again should we return to the area - winter or summer!
