Crested Butte House Rental Photos and Description

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!

Fantastic Home & Location

  • 5 of 5

Crested Butte was the location for our yearly ski trip this time and the Totem house accommodated my group of 9 easily. The house is beautiful and fit everyone and our ski/snowboard gear perfectly. The main level was very spacious allowing us to cook a big breakfast each morning while many sat at the counter and socialized. There are two massive fridge/freezer units in the kitchen along with all the cookware you need. Plenty of windows to view the spectacular scenery this wonderful area has to offer.

The location couldn't be beat - A short walk to Elk and the free ski shuttle. Once we stocked up on supplies we didn't have to drive the entire stay. Excellent for enjoying some Aprés Ski.

The property management company was a breeze to deal with and their communication was superb. I would rent again without hesistation.

Great home for big groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion in CB for the holidays. We stayed at the Totem House in downtown crested butte. The location was phenomenal, we walked to Elk every morning for breakfast. Then had easy access to the shuttle bus up the mountain so we could ski. We had 15 guests and everyone was comfortable, not cramped and each couple/group had their own bath. The beds were super comfy and the home was impeccably clean. We will return again next year and hope to stay at the Totem House again. It is called this due to its super close location to Totem Pole park. CB is so cool!
