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 smart TV with steaming services. Sonos audio.

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.

*** please note: we are very family / kid friendly (our children love coming here!) but not ideal for infants or toddlers (no cribs, no safety gates on stairs, no high chairs, and the kids floor is located on separate floor from adult living quarters).

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 Crested Butte

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.

2nd time in this amazing home and we will be back for a 3rd!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at the mountain home and it once again was amazing. We have stayed in several places over the years and this remains our favorite (we will book again for next year). If you want the convenience of walking to downtown But want a better view then the homes in town give then this is for you! We also loved being so close to the Green Lake Hike and hiked it twice during our stay.

See you next year!

Beautiful house in a great location

Our stay was fantastic. Very high quality house with great views just outside of (above) town. We really enjoyed walking or riding bikes down the hill for coffee, dinner or just to hang out. We will be back!

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.
