Contact manager for availability please. Colvin Ranch House, a luxury custom estate home on 300 private acres 1 mile from Crested Butte! Total privacy with the convenience of town just a jaunt away. Tranquility and peacefulness at Colorado's finest. An exquisite custom home close to town with total privacy, wilderness access and fantastic views - Whetstone Mountain Ranch is totally unique. There are currently only 3 homes on this 300 acre ranch, with trails, ponds, and private access to the Slate River and world class fishing. CALL FOR DETAILS!

Colvin Ranch offers a 4 bedroom deluxe house with 4-1/2 baths. It is located 2 minutes from town. As you drive North into Crested Butte, the ranch is on the West side nestled underneath gorgeous aspen and pine covered mountains. There is excellent private fishing on the property - the Slate River, as well as several large ponds. A brand new hot tub has been placed over the soothing stream for total relaxation!

The home has an extremely private master suite with a king bed, clawfoot bathtub, large walk-in shower, and exercise room that takes up one whole wing of the house.

Two additional master suites are located downstairs. One has a king bed and large sitting area with couch. The other has a queen bed. The third downstairs bedroom has a queen bed with its own full bath across the hall. All downstairs bedrooms have large windows and exterior doors leading to a private covered patio and pond. Bedrooms are beautifully furnished, with new pillow-top mattresses and down comforters.

A large great room is perfect for entertaining, with the massive gas fireplace and huge in your face breathtaking views. A breakfast nook off the kitchen seats 6 and overlooks the pond and Mt. CB in the front yard. You are surrounded by lakes, aspens, pines - it's part of Whetstone Ranch - acres and acres of land filled with vistas, lakes and pines. It is all yours. The biggest lake has a campfire area complete with picnic tables and barbecue pit.

Brand new private hot tub located right over the home's peaceful streams. Amazing views!

Want some privacy to ski, fish, relax and have some space in the mountains? It doesn't get any better.

In winter, you can cross country ski right out the front door. Summer is perfect for bikes, horseback riding, hiking, paddle boarding, disc golf and fishing. It will take you 5 minutes to bike to town, 3 minutes to drive to golf.

The house is only a mile from downtown Crested Butte, with a public shuttle to the ski hill, restaurants and other amenities. Colvin Ranch is 4.5 miles to the ski resort. Perfect for couples, families and small groups. The house and setting are truly one-of-a-kind.

Streams run thru the house - or rather, underneath it. The house is built on top of the streams, on bridges as it were.

For privacy, space and luxury, location, wilderness access and fishing, this home is absolutely unique in Crested Butte. The house is 3800 sq. ft.

About Cathy Ingle

I am a custom home builder and developer.

Cathy Ingle purchased this house in 2005

Why Cathy Ingle chose Crested Butte

I have been living in Crested Butte for over 35 years and enjoy sharing my love of the mountain lifestyle with others, and look forward to sharing my home with you.

What makes this house unique

I like having enough privacy not to need curtains. I like to take off on a hike right out my back door, ride dirt bikes or snowmobiles, and let my dog Louie swim in the ponds on the ranch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you. We have had a wonderful time. The Colvin Ranch House was everything we envisioned. It checked all the boxes for all of us for a fantastic family vacation. We had such a memorable time.

Amazing home and views

  • 5 of 5

Colvin Ranch is amazing! A one of a kind home located in a beautiful mountain setting making you feel miles away from busy life, yet only a quick jaunt to town or to ski. Can't ask for much more. Incredible views from every room, plenty of space for the whole gang to gather together or have private time. Will be back and highly recommend for a truly one of a kind unique Crested Butte experience.

Outstanding property; incredible views

  • 5 of 5

The property is as impressive as it appears from the website. All rooms have incredible views of greenbelt or mountains, and all have audible sounds of the creek flowing under the house.

We were there during a full moon, so the master bedroom was pretty bright for sleeping as there are no drapes.

Location, one mile from town is very convenient, but you still feel as though you are isolated when at the property because of how the home is situated.

Cathy, who managed the property was attentive and available.

Best local restaurant is Soupçon, which I highly recommend.

Would highly recommend this property.

The Best House in Crested Butte!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this beautiful house with just minutes to the slopes! My husband and I, and our two grown adult kids had the best time staying here! The rooms were roomy and the beds very comfortable! The designer kitchen was very spacious with all the wonderful top quality Wolf appliances and three different eating areas ! My favorite was the stunning fireplace with all the smart systems ( surround sound, WIFI , music and smart Tvs) and much more. After skiing all day , we enjoyed the heated floors & steam shower! Spectacular views from every window ! Loved this place and will be back! And Cathy was very nice and wonderful to work with ! Thanks for a wonderful Christmas!! Love from Texas

My husband and I, along with our grown children, their spouses and one grandchild loved every moment in this beautiful home. We thoroughly enjoyed the property and all it has to offer. The beds are heavenly, and the furnishings, WIFI, TV, music, and kitchen appliances and equipment are all high quality. Plenty of room for everyone to space out and enjoy the week without ever feeling crowded. We grilled out and enjoyed the multiple decks and seating areas. Showers are hot and we appreciated the nice touches of shampoo, soaps, makeup remover pads, etc. washer dryers worked perfectly after I figured out the controls. We would love to stay here again. Thank you for making our daughter's wedding week extra special for our entire family.
