Crested Butte lodge description

The Crested Butte Retreat is a luxury vacation home located on the mountain in Mt. Crested Butte, CO. The Retreat sleeps 26 guests and can be used for small weddings, corporate getaways, reunions, and other group stays. You will feel right at home in this 11,500sf Rocky Mountain getaway. With its timber beam interior, wood floors, granite counter kitchen, private decks, private hot tubs, projection screen TV, fireplaces, and spa room - you are sure to find something for everyone.

In the winter the shuttle stop is very close to the retreat providing easy access to the ski area and the rest of the town. Guests who are somewhat adventurous may also find ways to ski out from the property in the morning. In the summer time the retreat is surrounded by wildflowers and pure nature. The shuttle stop is a short hike away, although not as convenient as in the winter.

                      We are not a ski-in/out property, but we are a short walk down the road to the slopes. During the ski season, there is a free shuttle that will pick you up in front of the house and bring you to the base area. You can also transfer to another shuttle at the base area which will take you down to the town of Mt. Crested Butte where there are many restaurants and shops to enjoy.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: The Crested Butte Retreat is owned by Fred and Tina Studier. Fred is from Long Island, NY and is a graduate of Pomona College and Harvard Business School, was a partner with Bain & Company management consultants, and is currently President and CEO of Learner's Digest International, a medical education and multimedia company. Tina is from Minneapolis, MN and owns her own interior design and professional organization firm. Her design skills are showcased throughout the interiors of The Retreat. Fred and Tina currently live in California with their 3 daughters, but are in Crested Butte often and love to ski, snowboard, hike, mountain bike, and have fun in town.

                      Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte:
                      We feel Crested Butte is a wonderful combination of extraordinary natural beauty, historic architectural charm, and an inviting, open-minded local culture. They hope you have a wonderful stay at their favorite place in the Rocky Mountains!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                      Our favorite thing to do is enjoy a meal down at the base at Django's then return to the house and sit by the fire with friends and family enjoying a glass of wine. The Retreat is such a wonderfully relaxing place to be!
