Welcome to THE CARRIAGE HOUSE!
Come and experience ... PURE LUXURY, ECO-FRIENDLY BUILDING, SUPBERB IN-TOWN LOCATION, GREAT CRAFTSMANSHIP & the BEST VIEWS IN THE BUTTE!!! The Carriage House is so special that many couples have stayed here for their wedding, honeymoon and even proposed marriage here!
GREAT IN-TOWN LOCATION on the coveted western, historic side of town. Being only 2 blocks from west Elk Avenue (the historic main street with boutique shops and wonderful restaurants), steps away from the free bus shuttle to Mt. Crested Butte, and a few blocks from multiple trails, the Arts Center and playground, no car is required when you stay in this perfect location! It is in the middle of it all, yet very quiet, surrounded by horse pasture and across from the last bit of open space on the western side of town!
Being our guests you will be dazzled by SPECTACULAR, UNCOMPROMISED VIEWS of towering Mt. Crested Butte, Paradise Divide, Mt. Emmons, Whetstone, and Maroon Bells as well as the historic Kupushion barns.
LUXURIOUS LIVING ... Two bedrooms and two baths with beautiful furnishings, luxurious-high quality bedding and linens, and many other cozy comforts make The Carriage House perfect for a small family or two couples (max 4). There is an open living space on the upper floor with vaulted ceilings over the GOURMET KITCHEN with steel island table with 4 stools (see stocking details in ammenities) and cozy living room where you can relax while taking in the amazing mountain views. (Guests do not have access to the garage.)
The living room is outfitted with the latest home theatre system, flat screen TV, cable television, FAST WIRELESS INTERNET, and a cozy fireplace. Off the living room is the deck for catching some rays and admiring the beautiful views. The upper floor also has a bedroom with 2 twin beds (can be made into a King) and a custom slate tiled bathroom with shower.
The lower floor has a beautifully furnished and inviting queen bedroom with a pillow top mattress, 600 thread Egyptian linens, down comforter and pillows, and an exquisite Asian influenced travertine bathroom with big-fluffy towels and a STEAM SHOWER.
Facing the amazing view of 180 degrees of mountains you can dine and relax on the outdoor patio complete with a Weber BBQ perfect for summer grilling, log double bench, teak wood table and chairs, and a big red market umbrella.
*****+ The Carriage House received the highest ENERGY STAR AWARD, 5 STARS PLUS, and is built with sustainability in mind, making every effort to use non-toxic products, reclaimed and certified wood, energy efficient appliances, solar panels, and many other eco-friendly materials to minimize our impact on the earth. The house (900 sq ft) uses every inch of space in an eco-friendly well-planned architectural design.
ROMANTIC GETAWAY PACKAGES AVAILABLE: Champagne, chocolate and rose pedals ... or anything else you would like.
The house was completed in late Feb 2008. Here are comments from a couple of our recent guests:
Guests # 1
'We are at the Carriage House and it is fabulous! Everything is exactly as you described, including the cleanliness. We ski'd a half day today and are completely exhausted ( in a good way). Snow was incredible.'
Guests # 2
The home was absolutely beautiful! It was very comfortable and in an excellent location. We were able to mill around town and go hiking and snowshoeing. Our dog loved all the open space and nature! Thank you for allowing us to stay there. I know it must be tough letting people stay in your home, but we took care of it as if it were our's. Thanks again.
'The Carriage House is fabulous! We loved it! You have fitted it out beautifully, which we really appreciated. It was wonderful to come back to somewhere homely after a hard day of skiing, and the kids loved playing in the snow around the house...
So often, booking any kind of vacation feels like doing business. It is a real pleasure when it feels like there is a real person on the other side of the transaction who is genuinely interested in the vacationer enjoying themseves...
Congratulations on what you have done with the house. It's clear that you have tried hard to incorporate the atmosphere of Crested Butte - historical, laid back and a responsible eye to a sustainable future, You have accomplished it very well.'
As usual, Crested Butte did not disappoint! We had a great week hiking, biking, enjoying the scenery, etc. We love your house! Several of the features of the house make it very special. And I would love to know the stories behind many of the decorative items!
Thank you very much for sharing your house with us.'
