Overview

Crested Butte House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Baths, at heart of down town

Chestnut House is an 1880s Victorian House completely renovated for your comfort and pleasure. Located on Elk Avenue at the heart of Crested Butte, you can walk to all the restaurants, shops and other amenities that this historic ski town has to offer. A free shuttle bus passes the house to take you to the base of the mountain, or you can access over 50km of Nordic and snowshoe trails, and limitless bike trails just blocks from the house.

The house has been redecorated and refurbished to the highest standards. There are 4 charming bedrooms (sleeps 8 - 1 king, 1 queen, 4 twins) with deluxe hotel linens, and 2 1/2 baths (including steam shower) provisioned with premium toiletries. The gourmet country kitchen, fitted with Viking appliances, has been featured in 'Colorado Homes and Lifestyles' and 'Better Homes and Gardens', and the large, newly furnished living-room with a gas fireplace is perfect for gathering after a day of outdoor activities. Outside you can enjoy an enclosed private garden in the rear with a deck, new hot tub and views of Mt. Crested Butte, or you can sit on the front porch and discretely enjoy people watching on Elk Ave.

The property has private off street parking for 2 cars at the rear of the house.

Whether you are planning a short getaway, or an extended vacation with family or friends, Chestnut House will fulfill all your needs.

AWESOME HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Right in the heart of CB. Walking distance to stores, restaurants and park. The city provides a bus to the mountain that runs every 20 minutes from the four way stop that is very close to the home. The house has a wonderful kitchen and space to be comfortable. Love this home!

Best VRBO ever

  • 5 of 5

Our family of avid skiers visited Crested Butte for the first time this year and loved it. Great location right in the heart of town. House was perfect for the 6 of us...historical yet modern. Everything we needed including comfy linens and basics in the kitchen. We used the hot tub every day. Owner responsive with any questions. Even had a live decorated Christmas tree in the living room. This house looks great in the photos...even better in person. Welcomed the New Year at the Nordic Center Yurt dinner....so fun. Thanks for a memorable Christmas 2015.

Beautiful House - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family from Texas and New York celebrated my mother-in-law's return visit to her hometown of Crested Butte. If you want to stay in town, this house beats them all. It's right on Elk St, within walking distance of all the restaurants and bars. Inside, the kitchen / dining room is very spacious and provides a great place for a group gathering. The renovation preserves a lot of the historical charm of the house yet adds the modern conveniences of a Viking gas stove and even a wine fridge. The living room is equally spacious and perfect for entertaining. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs (the bedroom facing Elk St has a half bath - very helpful) and one bedroom downstairs. The bathrooms have been renovated to the highest standards with sizeable walk-in showers and multiple shower heads. The finish-out in this place was excellent.

The owners are extremely thoughtful. The Chestnut House comes well-stocked with the highest quality soaps and shampoos from L'Occitane, fresh flowers decorated the house when we arrived, and there was a binder of helpful information for our stay. Wi-fi available throughout the house, although the router is downstairs near the backyard so reception in the most remote upstairs bedroom can be spotty.

Overall we had a great one week stay in CB at the Chestnut House. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to be centrally located in town.

Chestnut house is adorable.

  • 5 of 5

Very wonderful and charming home in the middle of elk and in the heart of the city. Great kitchen and living areas. Wonderful hot tub in the back yard. Parking is included. You can walk to the four way stop to take a bus up the mountain or walk to Clarks (store) and all the restaurants. Bike rack in the back yard. Great for kids.
