2200 Square Foot Home W/3 Bedrooms And 3 Full Baths

Beautiful family home that has been lovingly restored. Originally built in 1883, this one-of-a-kind historic property has been lovingly restored to retain the charm of the old but offers the convenience of the new! The 2200 square foot home is very spacious, providing plenty of room for family gatherings! A major master bedroom and bath remodel was completed in June of 2013 and an en-suite bath was added to the downstairs bedroom in October of 2013, giving the home 2 master bedrooms. The home is located just one-half block west of Elk Avenue, with its restaurants and shops. The bus stop offering free shuttle service (10 minute ride) to the base of the ski mountain is two blocks away and hiking, mountain biking and Nordic skiing trails are just out the door. The stunning peak of Mt. Crested Butte is right outside the front door. The property uniquely features a beautifully landscaped and fenced private backyard with mature Aspen and pine trees, perennial local wildflower beds, large deck with outdoor furniture as well as a large historic out-building that can house your bikes and strollers!

About Dee Dee McLeod

Crested Butte had been our vacation spot for 20 years. We always knew when the opportunity presented itself, we would buy our second home in our favorite town. We were fortunate to stumble upon 305 Third Street when we rented it for a month in July and found out that it was for sale. Since we had fallen in love with the home just by viewing it on VRBO, we set out with an intent to buy and as soon as we stepped foot in the door, we were in love! We try and travel to Crested Butte from our home in Louisville, Kentucky several times a year. We bring our beloved dog Barney and love to come out in June to open the house up for the season, again in the fall to experience the great changing season and of course to play in the snow sometime during the winter. Spending time in the house allows us to experience it as our guests do and gives us the opportunity to improve or repair anything we feel needs tending to. In fact, since purchasing the home, we have made several improvements to make it more comfortable for us and our guests, including a renovation of the master suite and the addition of a bathroom on the first floor.

We think you will agree that our hands on approach of actually living in the home for an extended time helps keep the home in tip-top shape for our guests!

We sincerely hope you enjoy your experience in our home and that you feel it truly is a home away from home, with the comfort and amenities you deserve when you travel!

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns, no matter if you are still looking for a vacation spot or if you are a guest. We hope you love our little town as much as we do!

great house and location

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here twice. Once with my family during the summer and the other with friends for skiing. This house is comfortable, clean, classy and very well appointed with many small details and nuances. It is a creative combination of old word frontier and modern. Being located essentially right off Elk street is fantastic and allows one to walk everywhere in town; very convenient. Parking also is made available, which is a premium in Crested Butte. Also I can't say enough about the owner and property manger. Both are very attentive and very easy to work with.

Great house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house works well for many combinations of vacationeers. We had three adult couples on this trip and together and separately we enjoyed the front room, back patio and kitchen dining table. The two master bedrooms are ideal. The third bedroom is a loft with a separate full bathroom and not as ideal but it worked for us. And if you want to be in town in a home with three full bathrooms, you won't find better. We had instant response to two separate questions - Dee Dee and Ron are just great. And the place is so clean. We hope to be back to CB next year, and if we are, we'll definitely choose to stay here.

Thanks again for taking such great care of our home- we look forward to exceeding your expectations next year! Best, Dee Dee

A perfect vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at this property! It is centrally located and has so many great amenities. Restaurants and bars are right around the corner, and the shuttle up to the mountain is only a couple blocks away. We were able to cook multiple meals in the well stocked kitchen. The whole house was very clean and there was plenty of room for everyone, in fact it felt even bigger than the photos show. The owner Dee Dee was super responsive to our emailed questions and very accommodating. We can't say enough good things about this property and will definitely be back again!

Perfect in every regard!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two grown children stayed at this charming home between Christmas and New Year 2015-16. It far surpasses the online photos (it's even more comfortable and spacious than it appears). It was very convenient - 1/2 block off Elk Ave. the main street, 2 blocks from the bus stop to the hill, and about 4 blocks to the Nordic xc center. It was immaculate, delightfully furnished, and very well appointed. The beds were extremely comfortable, with a private bathroom for all of us. The kitchen was well stocked with the all the basics. And the warm floors were a treat for cold feet. Dee Dee, the homeowner, was delightful to work with, and John, the caretaker was very attentive and helpful. We have never stayed in a VRBO home where so much attention was given to the comfort and convenience of the guests. We could not have asked for more! We hope to return to Crested Butte, and we can't imagine staying anywhere other than this home.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We knew the house was the perfect location, but we hoped it was the right layout and personality for our party of two couples. It was all that and more. There are so many rooms to congregate or to separate and each one is comfortable. And the entire place is so clean! It was outfitted with everything we needed. Love this place and we hope to be back here on our next trip to Crested Butte.

Best, Dee Dee and Ron

perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our short stay in this cozy cottage. We come to Crested Butte every summer, and have stayed in many VRBOs. This one is one of the best. The location is perfect to walk or bike everywhere. The kitchen is stocked beyond the norm. It is exceptionally clean. The beds are very comfortable, and the bathrooms are luxurious. My only complaint is the nightly late night noise(mostly trash and bottles being dumped in the dumpster) from the bar next door, but I soon learned to keep the window fan on high to drown out the noise. And no one else in our house complained about it. I hesitate to mention any flaws, because this house is amazing!! I highly recommend this house! Thanks for sharing with us!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! We are glad you enjoyed the stay. Yes, being in the heart of things can be a bit hectic during the season and unfortunately, the local bars and restaurants are lax about observing the "no recycling" after 9:00 pm! We have found that the majority of the home doesn't hear anything once snug inside and that the white noise of the fans or air conditioner does the trick! Hope you get the opportunity to visit our little town again soon! Best, The McLeods
