About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

If you’re looking for a large, luxurious home just steps from downtown Crested Butte, then look no further! The Totem House is the ultimate property for a larger group seeking a truly unique experience in the high country! Steps from the front door will bring you to the soothing ripple of Coal Creek, and across the quaint foot bridge lies the lovely Totem Pole park. Just a block more and you’re right on Elk Avenue...the heart of CB! The house is also only 2 blocks from the Mountain Express shuttle stop (free) at 2nd & Elk. This home is situated in perhaps the single BEST location in town offering a perfect jumping off point for all your CB activities.

Do you want space? You’ve got it! With 6 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, multiple living areas and 3 decks you’ll have more than enough room to relax and entertain. This spectacular property has just been gutted and fully remodeled from top to bottom…including all new furniture, flat panel TVs and kitchen appliances!

Entering the house, a spacious mudroom provides ample space to hang your hat (and gear) after that long hike or ride. Your fun and relaxation starts just around the corner at the media/game room which features a large LCD flat panel TV, gorgeous pool table, and custom built wet bar. This first floor living area is a great place to watch the big game or perhaps the perfect getaway for the kids. Moving past the media room, a cozy bedroom with full bathroom is privately set back. Continuing along the hallway towards the north side of the house, you won't be able to take your eyes off of the huge wooden beams artfully decorating the passageway. The rear 2 bedrooms on the first floor consist of a king (master) and queen, each with an en-suite bathroom.

Ascending the stairs to the 2nd floor you’ll instantly appreciate the spacious layout – big enough for those large gatherings and then some! The front/east side of the room features a large living area with comfortable sofas, a leather chair, LCD flat panel TV and a river rock fireplace. Vaulted ceilings and over-sized windows frame in million dollar views of Mt Crested Butte and beyond. A large sunny deck is the place to take in the rays and watch the magic of CB pass on by. The rippling creek will quickly soothe you into an afternoon daydream. Continuing around the 2nd floor, a side deck and secondary sitting area (with a charming gas stove) connects into the over-sized dining room; large enough to comfortably seat 10+. Adjoining the dining area is a gorgeous, gourmet kitchen that is a centerpiece in its own right. The spectacular granite slabs and custom cabinetry frame in the commercial grade appliances; a dream kitchen for the most discerning chef! A large bar top creates a semi-circle around the kitchen where everyone can be part of the action. With a 6 burner cooktop, double in-wall oven and double refrigerator/freezer you’ll easily be able to cater the best dinner parties in town! A lovely powder room and sunny back deck round out this spectacular entertaining space.

The wood slat stairs with wrought iron handrails lead you up to the 3rd floor. Up here, the open design still allows you to peer down into the 2nd floor while maintaining your privacy. 2 bedrooms share a bathroom and the 3rd room is the ultimate kids retreat with 2 sets of bunk beds (each with a twin over double) and a private bathroom. Views from all sides on all floors take in the wonderful vistas of Crested Butte. Step out and stroll the town, read a book at Totem park or set off on that epic bike adventure… wherever the day may lead you, The Totem House is the place to call home while in the ‘Butte!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family get together with 12 people. The house is perfect, very close to downtown (can walk there in < 5minutes) and also close to great hiking. The house is very comfortable and the kitchen and dining area great for large groups. We had a great time!

Fabulous house!! Highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house when we were in Crested Butte for a wedding last weekend. The location is fabulous. (about 2 blocks from Elk Avenue) Walking distance to lots of restaurants & shops. We rented bikes and rode around the area. Also went for a beautiful 5 mile hike from the house. The house is very spacious!! There were only 5 of us staying there--, but it sleeps 16. Great common area and large deck. 6 Bedrooms and 5 full baths and one half bath. Room for everyone. Super comfortable. Great parking if you have a car. Highly recommend!!

Property is tired

Great house in downtown Crested Butte

  • 5 of 5

The Totem House was perfect for our family during the holidays. The skiers had a short walk to the shuttle to take them to the base of the mountain, and the rest of us had a short walk to sledding, ice skating and the shops and restaurants in town. The house easily accommodated 11 of us and we had everything we needed. I highly recommend the Totem House!
