Overview

Crested Butte House Rental Photos and Description

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. Beautiful furnishings, custom built cabinetry and closets as well as a large flat screen TV complete this room. Remodeled in the spring of 2013.

* 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!

Best,

Dee Dee and Ron McLeod

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.

Owner's Response: Ron and I are so glad the house and location were perfect for you and your guests! From the moment we spoke on the phone, I felt our home would provide the perfect spot for your vacation in CB. I enjoyed our talks and hope you can return often to our charming little town! 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

Wild Flower Haven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been visiting Crested Butte since the early 1990's but have never stayed downtown. This home was so convenient I can't imagine staying on the mountain again. We could walk to all the restaurants and shops. We walked to pick up our mountain bike rentals and could proceed directly to the trails from the house. It was amazing. The house itself was cozy and welcoming with every amenity you could want. We were there just before the wildflower festival and the flowers were incredible at the house and on every trail. We were sad to leave, and can't wait to return. So happy to have found this slice of heaven on earth.

Perfect Location in CB

  • 5 of 5

We visit CB at least twice a year and have stayed in a variety of locations. This home is conveniently located right off Elk but still very quiet. The house has a variety of special touches including local artwork, heated floors, comfortable beds, a well stocked kitchen and an amazing master suite with steam shower. So thankful the owners are willing to share this perfect place with other families. We can't wait to return.

We were very happy to hear your family enjoyed our home and glad it met your expectations! Let us know if we can ever accommodate you again! Best, Dee Dee
