About the property

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!

* The home features high-end furnishings, deluxe bedding and towels, vaulted ceilings, in-floor heating, high speed wireless and satellite dish TV.

* The home features 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. One bedroom is an upstairs king master suite, with a huge steam shower and his and her grooming areas, complete with separate vanities and toilets.

* In addition to the upstairs master, there is a queen downstairs master with a private bath, complete with huge shower, toilet, beautiful large vanity with an abundant amount of counter and drawer space and in-floor heated tile floors. Added in the fall of 2013.

*The 3rd bedroom is a queen loft bedroom with vaulted ceilings, sky lights, located in the front of the home, providing privacy from the rest of the house.

* The third bathroom is located on the first floor and boasts another large shower, vanity and toilet.

* The front and back of the house can be closed off from one another, giving a separate entrance and sleeping and bathroom privacy to the front of the house, including the loft queen bedroom, great room and bathroom. Perfect set up for your young adults and college aged children!

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!

Adorable, clean, perfect location, much bigger than pictures imply

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time visiting with our two elementary-aged children. The house was immaculate and adorably decorated. It was much larger than the pictures implied, allowing everyone to have their own space. We were pleasantly surprised by the private and lush backyard. The location could not be more perfect - you are in the center of town, crawling distances from restaurants and shops. It is also a few blocks from some great trails - we especially enjoyed the wildflowers. We would absolutely return!

Most importantly, we are happy our home suited your needs and met your standards; we know our guests have options and we feel truly honored when our home is chosen. Thank you for taking such great care of things while in our home- we hope you have the opportunity to return!

Great house – it has everything you would want.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in CB several times and this house has the best location. The house was immaculate and had everything that we needed. The house was perfect both inside and out, it’s great staying in a house that is so well care for. We had six adults staying here and the location enable everyone to plan their own outing and meet back up on Elk for afternoon cocktails. The back yard was perfect if you just wanted to hang out in the morning.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing holiday! Our week in CB was incredible and the location if 305 third was so perfect. It was walking distance to everything! Incredible restaurants, great shopping and fantastic bars are seconds away. We were there with our three young kids and could not have had a better time. The house was so perfectly equipped for our every need. It was much bigger than it appears in the photos, and was beautifully kept. We really wouldn't change a thing. Can't wait to go back!
