About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Are you a couple looking for the perfect Crested Butte cabin? A family of three or two-to three friends looking for a Crested Butte get-away? Sopris Cabin has everything you will want in a Crested Butte vacation home--the perfect location plus unique character and charm. The location on Sopris Avenue is ideal--just one block to the town shuttle that takes you to Mt Crested Butte (for skiing in winter and hiking in summer), and one block off the core restaurant district of Elk Avenue--the main street in Crested Butte where you will find popular shops and restaurants. (Our location is ideally located in the core of the historic district, not on the east side of town--you simply cannot find a better location!)

Sopris Cabin is part of Crested Butte's history--the front rooms were an original mining cabin dating from the 1880's. It has undergone two renovations, the most recent of which added a sunroom, Colorado sandstone floors in the main living areas and, best of all, in-floor radiant heat.

BEDROOM: The bedroom on the main level has a comfortable, king-size, bed with a pillow-top mattress. The bed also has cotton linens, down pillows and a down comforter.

KITCHEN: The large, bright and sunny, centrally located, kitchen includes a full-size refrigerator, Jenn-Air gas range, dishwasher, microwave and garbage disposal. We have added a coffee maker, coffee grinder, microwave oven, toaster, blender and crock pot. The kitchen is fully equipped with utensils and cookware--everything you'll need for preparing meals. Your mealtimes become more festive when served on our colorful Fiestaware dishes.

LIVING AREA: The open floor plan includes a living area that is open to the dining room and kitchen. It is tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture and includes a wood-burning stove and TV.

SUNROOM/Rear Entry: The most recent expansion of the home included the addition of a rear sunroom with bright windows and French doors that exit onto the backyard deck. A loveseat in this room opens up to a twin-bed to provide an additional sleeping area.

BATHROOMS: The cabin has a fully tiled bathroom with walk-in shower.

BACKYARD: The fenced back-yard is nicely landscaped and has mature cottonwood and aspen trees. Enjoy summer evenings on the deck that includes patio dining furniture and a gas grill. The fenced yard is ideal for pets. The rear of the property has two off-street parking spots that are accessed via an alley.

PET POLICY: We own a standard poodle and want to welcome guests with ONE well-behaved dog at our cabin. We welcome pet owners who are bringing their dog to Crested Butte to spend time with it. We do not allow pets to be left at the cabin for extended periods of time -- while you go ski for instance.

NOTE: Our cabin also has two upstairs bedrooms, but we rent the downstairs only. (There will be no one staying upstairs!) We sometimes escape to Crested Butte without our three children and believe our 'downstairs only' option makes the perfect getaway for couples!

About Leslie

We are a family of five living in Boulder, Colorado. We love to vacation in Crested Butte! In Winter, we downhill ski, Nordic ski and backcountry ski. In summer, we hike and mountain bike. Our favorite Crested Butte events are the July 4th parade and the Alley Loop Nordic Ski in February. We would be happy to answer any of your questions about activities in Crested Butte. -Mark and Leslie

Leslie purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Leslie chose Crested Butte

We visited Crested Butte many times over 20 years before purchasing Sopris Cabin in March 2010. We like being in town for the proximity to restaurants, shops and Nordic trails. But we also downhill ski, so being close to a ski shuttle stop was important--there is one just a block away. We feel fortunate to own this piece of Crested Butte history -- a fully updated historic cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

Our prime location in-town makes us unique! We are located in the historic district of town -- just one block from the shops and resturants on Elk Ave, and from the main ski shuttle stop at 2nd and Elk. (There are only five shuttle stops in town, so many properties do not have this important benefit.) Another feature that we and our guests appreciate is the king-size bed in the main-level bedroom!

Great property within walking distance of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights in October and absolutely loved it! Home was cozy and comfortable. The location was one block away from everything in town. There is even a fenced backyard for dog owners (our dogs loved it). Looking forward to returning to Crested Butte next year and staying here again!

Charming Cabin near Downtown CB

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week in this very comfortable cabin with our two small dogs. The yard was great for the dogs and the house very comfortable and quiet. The kitchen served us well yet we were just a few short blocks from many nice restaurants. Will definitely stay again!

Cute little cabin, but dark inside

  • 4 of 5

This is a very cute and cozy little cabin. Well equipped and comfy. My only complaint is that it's very dark inside. There aren't a lot of windows and it seems even those there don't let in a lot of light, so you feel a little like in a cave. Overall, I'd still stay here again though.
