About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Winter*Spring*Summer*Fall* Year round, this is the perfect mountain retreat! The wide open space and spectacular views from every room will make this a place you will want to return time and time again with all of your friends and family!

This spacious four bedroom, two story, sunny, end-unit condominium in highly desirable Ponderosa complex features three decks overlooking exceptional, unobstructed views of Mt. Crested Butte and the surrounding mountains. It is an easy 300 yard walk to the slopes, restaurants and shopping around the base area and Mountaineer Square. From here you can easily catch a ride on the Mountain Express, a free shuttle service that runs every 20 minutes to historic downtown Crested Butte where shopping and a variety of local restaurants abound.

The fully stocked kitchen has granite counter tops, beautiful slate tile floors, all new furniture, and stainless steel appliances. The first floor has an open floor plan for the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The lower level also includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms that share a common tub area. Two large master bedrooms that share a full bath are located upstairs. The spacious, approximately 2000 square foot interior features comfortable furniture for enjoying the moss rock hearth, wood-burning fireplace, and new TV and DVD. Wireless Internet (WiFi) is included with your rental and accessible with your portable device throughout the unit.

All of the art throughout the home reflects the natural beauty of the surrounding area and features the work of several celebrated local artists.

This unique, two story condominium comfortably sleeps eight. The two bedrooms downstairs have two twin beds and one queen each with new mattresses, cotton blankets, flannel sheets and colorful quilts. The very large master bedrooms upstairs have king-size beds with new mattresses and roomy closets. One room features cable T.V. and a private covered deck for viewing the spectacular sunsets over the Red Lady. The two bedrooms upstairs share a spacious bathroom and includes a stacked washer and dryer for laundry.

Not to mention that Crested Butte is the place to be. Whether it be in winter for apres ski. After hitting world class terrain, knee deep in powder all day, walk back from the lifts, join your family in the new large hot tub for five to seven people overlooking the base area, while you fire up the gas grill on the patio. Okay. You prefer the warmer months of Spring and Summer. Bring your mountain bike and a pack of friends to ride or hike any one of the scenic trails directly from the front door.

During the summer months, Crested Butte the 'Wildflower Capital' is host to the Wildflower Festival in July as well as many athletic races ranging from Fat Tire Bike Week in June to the 1/3 Marathon from Gothic to downtown Crested Butte every 4th of July. Additionally, the Gunnison Valley is home to some of the best fly fishing around.

Or Fall. If you prefer the more laid back approach to experiencing the mountains, late September into early October is peak time to watch the Aspens glow. Year round, you will find a good balance between adventure and peace of mind in this quirky but enchanting mountain town.

About Holly Likos

We are a family of five that used to live in Boulder, Colorado. I have been vacationing with my family in Crested Butte since I was 8 years old. I grew up skiing on Mt. Crested Butte and I remember when there were only 3 lifts up the mountain to include a gondola that went to the ever elusive base of the butte. I now come back with my family every summer to hike and bike and enjoy my beloved C.B.

Holly Likos purchased this condo in 1979

Why Holly Likos chose Mount Crested Butte

We love Crested Butte because of the laid back feel of the place and its people. Its like the wild, wild west of ski resorts. No fur shops. No Cartier. No chains whatsoever. Its easy to get around this small town by bike or free public transportation. Great hikes abound. And its the best place to mountain bike in the entire state of Colorado!

What makes this condo unique

I love how spacious it is. It is peaceful and quiet. There are spectacular views. And I always feel like I have truly gotten away.

Best Condo for our Family.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful. The set up of this location worked great for our family. It had all the essentials in the perfectly stocked kitchen. We come to CB every other year. The Ponderosa is our favorite location. It is walking distance to the ski area. We plan on staying here when we come back in two years.

Crested Butte Condo!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our visit to crested butte! The condo is pretty much as described and worked well for us. During our stay the microwave broke but the owner was quick to get it replaced! Some minor issues the owners might want to look into: almost all of the remote control batteries are dead, the dining room table is very wobbly (this was addressed in a previous review in October in which the owner said it would be fixed, unfortunately it was not) this was a slight inconvenience for our family of 7, the master bedroom upstairs did not have cable as advertised but does have a DVD player and a roku connect but we weren’t able to utilize the Netflix connected to ponderosa 3F because the account was being used by two other people most nights of our stay. The house could use a deep cleaning. We found leftover items from other guests around the condo like a sock and an old plastic dessert container in the kitchen. Overall, it was a great trip. The location and views are amazing and we were able to walk to the lifts everyday. Definitely not a luxury condo, but we were very comfortable and would stay again! Thank you!

Great location on Mt Crested Butte.

  • 4 of 5

Early August 7 members of my family stayed here. Great choice for busy family. Very cozy, not plush, but perfect for us. Kitchen was well stocked, laundry was a definite plus.
