About Elizabeth Fossum

We are a family of 4, with a son in kindergarten and a daughter in college. We rent out to families or groups that are respectful of our home and love the Colorado lifestyle as much as we do. We are animal lovers but keep our animals at home so this can be a comfortable place for those with allergies.

Elizabeth Fossum purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Elizabeth Fossum chose Southwestern Colorado

We've been CB fans ever since ski-bumming here in the 90s and feel fortunate to call it our home away from home today - a vibrant, funky, one-of-a-kind town surrounded by a mountain playground offering endless opportunities for fun, recreation, and relaxation!

What makes this townhome unique

We have a private and quiet location on the end of a 5-unit building. Great neighbors who live there year-round. Wonderful fast sledding hill in the backyard! Sunny, clean, and fully stocked with everything from spices to condiments to shampoo and conditioner and lotion - save yourself the hassle and cost of having to buy or bring the basics! We have a coveted enclosed detached garage with a second outdoor parking spot in front of it. Many many places for rent in CB don't have enclosed parking! We are right on the bus loop, so you can get to the lifts within minutes either by walking or taking the bus. In fact, if you fly in to Gunnison, you can take the bus right to the house, to the town, and to the ski resort- no need for a rental car!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can up with my husband for a little R&R. It was still muddy on some of our hikes but the flowers were already starting to appear and we had a great time in town before the heavy tourist season started. Mostly what we wanted was peace and quiet and we got it. The house was really comfortable and spacious and had a lot of extras beyond what you'd find at a hotel but for the same price.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this Condo. Nice location with bus pickup right outside the unit, or about a 10 minute walk to the slopes. This unit was comfortable for our party of 6. I would stay here again.

Well maintained and great location

  • 5 of 5

One of the most nicely maintained condos Ive stayed at. Especially liked the great TV in the family room and individual room temp controls. Kids loved sledding on the hill in the back after a day of spring skiing (and I liked watching them with the mountain in the background). Bus was fantastic and we never used our car once (wish we would have brought firewood from the beginning). We were 2 adults/2 kids and very comfortable.

This was the perfect spot for our family of 4 including 2 small children

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the cleanliness and accommodations at the spice of life. The play pens and toddler bed mattress made for very easy travels. The steep hill on the unit was a hit for our 2 year old when we pulled out the sleds from the garage. We had such a great time and will definitely be returning next year!!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at spice of life. Beautiful location, and only a 7 min walk to the lift. Kitchen is well stocked with spices and cooking pots and pans. We were able to prepare all meals here with no problem. Lots of extra blankets and towels so we were able to fit 8 of us comfortably. We had to get in touch with the owners once during the stay and they were very responsive.
