Overview

Southwestern Colorado Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

If you've already set your sites on Crested Butte, you're already on the right track! This town is one of our favorites in the world! Not just for skiing, but also for hiking in the summer, mountain biking and even just relaxing and taking a break from the busy lives that we lead. Our house reflects this. When we first moved in, it was obviously a miner's cabin which had been brought down from Irwing lake and added on to to make a house, but it did need a little T.L.C.! In renovating it though we have kept the charm that initially drew us to it whilst adding things like a hot tub under the stars, a sauna, great insulation and cozy furnishings. Location-wise, it would be hard to beat - it's a few blocks from the main drag (Elk Avenue) and the stop for the free shuttle to the mountain is almost directly opposite the house. The house is cozy enough for a romantic getaway for 2, but also large enough for a relaxing vacation for 4!

About The Owner

We've skied since we were kids. After working a ski season in Chamonix and developing a passion for backcountry skiing and hiking, we started looking for somewhere in the US where we could set up a more permanent home. When we first came to the town of Crested Butte in 2000, we realised that this was the place - with its challenging ski area, great backcountry and amazing community.

Over the years we've come to appreciate all the seasons here in Crested Butte and we've grown to love this town which has managed to keep its charm and avoid the overdevelopment that you find in so many other resorts.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2001

Why The Owner chose Southwestern Colorado

When we started looking for a house, we wanted something small and cozy in the heart of historic Crested Butte (as opposed to the mountain resort which we found less charming, especially outside of the ski season). We finally found 219 Whiterock which at the time was a bit of a wreck with a full drum kit set up in the living room and some interesting murals painted in the loft area! With a little vision, we saw the potential of this cabin and spent the next year renovating it, even adding a sauna and a hot tub in the garden Now we have this beautiful home in Crested Butte.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is perfectly situated in the heart of historic Crested Butte - you can walk to the shops, the restaurants, the movie house etc and the free bus for the 10 minute ride up to the mountain resort stops almost directly outside by the Nordic centre.

In the summer you can hike directly from the house (Green Lake is a favorite!)and you really don't need a car unless you're planning some longer trips.

Lying in the hot tub staring up at the stars and the mountains after a long day of skiing, hiking, biking or even white water rafting is just the coolest!!

Enjoy!

This place is nicer than the pictures show. Everything was spot on. Only about 5 minutes to the mountain. We will be back.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Tony's home for 4 years now during ski season and it is in the perfect location to catch the bus for the slopes or take a walk into town for dinner or shopping. Cozy home with Colorado feel all around. We will continue to rent it for many years to come. Thank you sooooooooo much Tony for Sharing a piece of heaven with us. Pam and Stan Chase

Perfect Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at the Miner's Cabin and it was wonderful. Last year it was just the two of us but this year we also invited another couple. The upstairs bedroom is definitely small but they said it worked perfectly. The rest of the house is super comfortable and we all loved the fireplace and hot tub! We are hoping to be back again next year to try the Alley Loop race again - too fun!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this trip even more than our honeymoon, and we are planning to come back when our baby is 3 and ready for ski school! The place is so adorable, and the cabin's design and decor is similar to all the beautiful little shops and restaurants on Elk Street, which feels really special. It was great being able to cook to save a little money, but being walking distance to such great food was awesome, too. Easy to create a balance. The hot tub is fantastic after a day on the mountain, and the bed was comfy. Everything about this property is just stellar for a couple looking to get away. Also, if you're unfamiliar with CB, the shuttle is so easy to use into the mountain. We literally walked a half block to the stop, and the shuttle runs every fifteen minutes. We loved staying in town for the charm all around us, and it wasn't challenging in the least to make our way out to the slopes. So he location and accommodations were both just outstanding!

Best Place to Stay in Crested Butte

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was the perfect place for our family of four. Its a close walk to great restaurants and coffee shops, around the corner from the Nordic Center and a warm and comfortable place to go "home". Unlike many other vacation rentals we've stayed in, Tony keeps some spices, tea and other stock on hand so you don't have to run to the store for every little thing. The sauna and jacuzzi were heaven, too. It isn't a big place but it was just the right size for us with everything we needed and in spite of being right downtown it was really quiet. Don't think of staying anywhere else!

Great Cabin, Fantastic Town!

  • 5 of 5

We make it a point to spend at least a week in Crested Butte every year. With the knees not being what they once were, hiking and biking have now replaced skiing. But what a place to joy the outdoors! Especially when the Aspens change color. The Miners Cabin has everything your looking for. A large comfortable King bed in the master, fully stocked kitchen, sauna, hot tub, and a location that is just a short walk to Elk Street with all it's restaurants and eclectic shops. The local bus also stops just down the block for free transportation to the ski slopes. Pefect stay! We'll do it again soon!

We fell in love with Crested Butte the first time we came to do some back country skiing in 2000. Since then the town hasn't stopped growing on us. Every year we discover new restaurants, new slopes, new hikes and, best of all, new friends in what has to be one of the most welcoming communities we know.

Whether you come here to ski, to hike, to bike or just to relax, there is always something going on here. The day is yours for the taking!

Any time of year the mountains are beautiful and challenging. Just a 10 minute ride on the free shuttle bus that stops almost outside the door, the main mountain resort never stops improving.

Activities on the mountain are boundless and open to all skill levels. In the summer there are endless possibilities for camping, hiking and exploring this great area.
