For added convenience, the kid's room has an LCD TV and DVD player.

The bedrooms each have high-quality mattresses and box springs, so everyone can get a good night's sleep after a full day of fun.

The house is conveniently located near the recreation path between the towns of Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte but closer to the ski area ( 3 minutes ). A scenic walk, bicycle ride or a short drive allows quick access to either town.

                      Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte offer incredible vacation opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers of all ages. Deemed 'Wild Flower Capital' of Colorado, our summers are bright and full of colors. Listed as one of North America's 'Top Ski Resorts' we are a world class destination ski area.

                      There are so many activities available in this area, it is tough to list them all. The winters offer skiing, snowmobiling, skating, ice fishing and other activities all surrounded by a beautiful, mountainous setting.

                      The summers offer mountain biking, hiking, fishing, golfing, wildflower viewing, rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding, again, set in a magnificent alpine environment.

                      If you want to experience the true peace and tranquility of the Crested Butte area, come visit during our 'Shoulder Seasons.'

                      April and May offer great snowmobiling and back country skiing options. These months can be really good fishing as well.

                      In September and early October, the mountains glow with the golden fall colors of Aspens.

                      November is extremely quiet and peaceful. The ski area opens over Thanksgiving weekend. 'The Lily' is a wonderful home to prepare a Thanksgiving feast!

                      January and early February are pretty quiet as well and often offer some of the best skiing with the smallest crowds.

                      Whether you come for our Holiday Seasons or visit during our less busy Shoulder Seasons, come and enjoy the Crested Butte area and see why our visitors continue to come back year after year.

Everything I like to do in the mountains, on the rivers and in the lakes is in close proximity and easily accessible. Living in a small resort town, I have had an opportunity to work in several different fields. I have been a construction worker, landscaper, bartender, waiter, teacher, guide and I even worked as a distributor for wine, beer and spirits. Recently I was very fortunate to find my home located in Glacier Lily Estates. Now I am guiding and trying my hand at vacation rentals. So far it has worked out exceptionally well. Everyone that has stayed at my home has had nothing but wonderful comments and moments of disbelief as to how incredible their stay has been. I am considering these results an immediate success, but I am not stopping there. I am constantly upgrading my home, its amenities and my abilities as a caretaker to offer the most comfortable vacation rental experience in Crested Butte.

                      Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte:
                      Crested Butte offers so much for the outdoor enthusiast. There is an incredible amount of National Forest and Wilderness within close proximity to Crested Butte. In fact, trailheads to many mountain bike and hiking trails are right out the front door of my home. In the winter, the ski area is within view and only 3 short minutes drive from my home. You can just peek out the windows, see which lifts are running, what the skier traffic is like and hit the slopes. If you are not in the mood for lift serviced skiing, there are snowmobile trailheads nearby and a groomed cross country trail less than 300 meters away. In the summer, several different mountain biking options are right out the door and the garage is a great place to throw a quick tune on your bike. If you are a hiker, you can walk across the street and access the recreation path that links the two towns with several hiking trails. If a scenic drive is what you are craving, take a left out of Glacier Lily Estates and drive the Gothic loop over Paradise Divide and back to the house. This is a beautiful drive and a great way to spend a day. Tennis anyone? There is a private tennis court 50 meters from the home. There is good fishing within a mile of the house and larger rivers are less than 3 miles away. If the group is interested in rafting or kayaking, drive to Almont and enjoy a day floating the Taylor or Gunnison River. The local outfitters and guides are professional and well trained. Whether you are into whitewater, flat water or float fishing, the guides of the Gunnison Country will hook you up!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      One of the most special events of the day begins when you wake up and look out one of the enormous picture windows and see the colors of the sunrise lighting the magnificent mountain peaks. The timer on the automatic coffee pot has started and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee fills the home calling you to the kitchen. As you curl up in a leather recliner with a fresh cup, reading one of the local papers, a fox strolls across the open field and you know that no matter what activities you choose for your day you won't have to fight traffic or go far to enjoy them!
