About the property

Ski Heaven! Perched over Town with unreal views. 10 Mins to base, 5 to town.

This true mountain log home features all the benefits of being located in Town and yet affords privacy, unbelievable views and space. When you've enjoyed all Town has to offer, and are ready to relax and escape to the Mountains, we are short 5 minute walk or less on a bike (wear sneakers - road is not paved). Our home is located on The Bench overlooking the historic Town home of excellent restaurants, galleries, etc.

However, unlike many historic homes in Town, this home is spacious, bright and open floor plan with tremendous views. If you have come to 'get away from it all' this home offers total peace and quiet, and is very private.

Our home accommodates a modern family lifestyle - kitchen and dining and living room open are all in an open floor plan. There is a separate kids floor with great family room. Modern conveniences such as high speed wifi, flat screen TV including NFL Sunday ticket,

Authentic log cabin embraces the Alpine lifestyle. Nordic ski trails in your backyard. The Bench is in the wilderness with 35 acre plots of land and is yet part of Town and literally a 5 minute walk to the Center of town. Truly the best of both worlds.

Nordic center and trails very conveniently located. Green Lake Trail is right outside our front door. Alpine, Nordic, Hiking, peace, privacy and quiet and IN TOWN.

About Richard

My family resides in NYC and we have three girls aged 14, 11 and 11. My wife is an Orthopaedic Surgeon and I am an entrepreneur. We love to travel and ski, mountain bike and fish.

We enjoying hosting like-minded families and sharing our home.

Richard purchased this house in 2015

Why Richard chose Southwestern Colorado

My wife and I lived in Crested Butte after graduating college and fell in love with the town and mountain and the people. We always wanted to return and spend more time here. My wife really wanted to be in Town with all of the conveniences and leave a car parked riding and walking everywhere. While I too appreciated the convenience of being in Town, I wanted more of a Mountain vacation home that helped me feel like I was in the Rockies - with incredible mountain views, trees, privacy and a serene environment.

When we saw this home located on the Bench in Town, it truly was the best of both worlds and we acted immediately. We absolutely love it and think you will too.

What makes this house unique

In town, yet ever-so-slightly removed perched directly above Town. You can enjoy everything Town has to offer and then walk or ride your bike 5 minutes and escape to a total Mountain experience with total peace and quiet.

Dream home with a log cabin design and feel, private location yet walk to town and amazing views!!

  • 5 of 5

Quit looking elsewhere and book this place, you will be hard pressed to find another with such great accommodations and location. The upstairs is great for cooking, hanging out, and amazing views! The main floor has the master and two other bedrooms, each with a bathroom and shower (master has jacuzzi!). The lower level has the other bedroom and a bathroom down there with shower. There is a "game room" that is between this bedroom and the bathroom, we used this "game room" for one of the couples bedroom so we all had our own room to sleep in. We walked to town one night and it was easy and enjoyable. We drove to the mountain each day to ride, this was roughly a 5 minute drive, so close! This place has you wishing it was yours, we would stay again no question about it. One thing to note in the winter, there are only two parking spaces at the property, you may need to park additional vehicles down in town or nearby where available.

The property is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Crested Butte and it won't be our last. This property over looked the beautiful town of Crested Butte, had an amazing view of the mountains as well( great to watch the fireworks on New Years Eve). We were in walking distance of town as well. This property had everything we could even need. It was inviting & cozy. Our 12 year old granddaughter has plan to make it her dream home some day. Need we say more! 😉򒐠You won't be disappointed.

5-Star Stay. Thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful log cabin! Plenty of room for big fam Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful. 3 floors with bedrooms separated from the upstairs kitchen and family room was awesome! Lots of TVs for the family members to either enjoy the crowd or get some alone time in a different part of the house! We will definitely try to stay here again!

Best location in CB with great style and views!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Crested Butte several times and this is by far the best property we've stayed in! The best views, quite location, spacious bedrooms, clean, and classy! Oh and did I mention the views? Usually you don't get both views and location but here you get both!

Richard, we will be calling you again soon!

Great Location and house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks at the end of August heading into Labor day weekend and couldn't have asked for a better location and house! We've been coming to CB for 4 years now and have stayed every where from in town on Elk to the the base of the mountain. This is by far our favorite location and house. You are a close enough to walk to town (9 min to the center of elk or less then 5 to the edge of town) and you still have an amazing view (which you don't get when you stay at most places in town) plus have access to trails. Parking in town can be a big issue at parts of the day so having this luxury was awesome.

I highly recommend sitting in the back yard at the beautiful wood table they have and enjoying cocktails or lunch. That was my favorite spot in the house as overlooks all of down town CB yet is completely private.

We plan on making this our regular spot for years to come! Thanks for an awesome home!

Crested Butte
Car: recommended

Historic and beautiful Crested Butte is equally attractive in both Summer and Winter. World class restaurants, skiing, golf, fly fishing, mountain biking. Enjoy your active lifestyle or simply kick back and relax.

Don't take our word for it - watch and read what the below sources have to say:

Powder Magazine (6 Great Reasons Crested Butte is The Best Ski Town)


Forbes (Colorado's Crested Butte: An "Extremely" Hospitable Ski Resort)

Google the title it as I cannot place the url here but both are worth watching / reading if you've never been to Crested Butte and are considering.

Crested Butte is fantastic -- a real authentic coal mining town with world class dining, art, and every sport imaginable: skiing, fly fishing, mountain biking, Nordic skiing, etc. tremendous quality of life.
