Seriously, its been a great stay. You home is great, location has been ideal for the kids, we could have not asked for a better situation. Sarah and I love the photograph art work and the shower steamers.

Pefect space and location

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect! Perfect location and has a cozy feel. My only complaint would be the wifi was slow and made getting work done in the house challenging. I would stay here again if I come back to crested butte!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Andrea. Unfortunately, the wifi is a town issue that we cannot fix. During busy times, like the hight of the ski season, for example, the network can get overloaded and slow with too many users. Sorry about that.

Best Crested Butte Stay Yet!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! The location was perfect to access the city and catch the shuttle to the mountain. The home was beautiful and equipped with everything we needed and more! The kitchen was a blast to cook in and the steam showers and jetted tub were amazing!

Perfect Home, Perfect Location

Where to begin?

This is an amazing house. Perfectly comfortable for 8 adults and a couple kids. The common areas are large and welcoming, our group really liked the large kitchen/dining area. And the yard?! Holy cow, our own slice of Crested Butte for the weekend. Large enough to play volleyball and enjoy a nice fire after the sun goes down.

Hopefully we'll have many returns.

The house was beautiful, clean and well maintained. It was the perfect place for our group- we had 4 couples staying for a wedding. Each couple had their own space but during the day we could all fit comfortably in one of the two living rooms. Although we didn't have kids with us, I did notice that the house was very kid friendly. A pack-n-play in one of the master bedrooms, stools in the bathrooms, and covers on the outlets. The location was perfect, an easy walk to the middle of town. The owner was extremely easy to work with. I could tell that her main goal was for us to love Created Butte as much as she does and we sure did! I only wish we stayed longer!

I highly recommend staying here.

Crested Butte

The house is located on the main street in historic Crested Butte. It is within a block to restaurants, supermarket, wine stores, bike shop and a movie house. It is also a block away from the complementary ski bus stop that in five minutes takes you up to the lifts of Crested Butte. For families with kids, we are across the street from a playground and tennis courts. Another playground and a soccer field are two city blocks away. Come in the winter and enjoy world class skiing. Come in the summer and find out why Crested Butte is famous for its wildflower and music festivals.

Other Activities: Snowmobiling, Snowboarding, Cross Country Skiing, Sledding/Tubing
