This historic 1800s mining cabin has been extensively renovated with a large log addition. It is perfectly situated right in the heart of Crested Butte, just one block from restaurants,shopping and the free shuttle to the ski area. Hiking and biking trails are steps away. This home has three bedrooms, two full baths with jacuzzi tub (both bathrooms have been newly renovated in 2004). This cozy, comfortable home offers the perfect place for friends and family to gather.

The sunny kitchen was fully renovated in June 2012, and has a gas cook-top, microwave, and dishwasher. The kitchen flows into a cozy living room with vaulted ceiling, maple floors, and gas log fireplace. French doors open to a small south-facing deck, fenced yard, and flower gardens... with great town and mountain views.

The log addition includes two charming rustic log main floor bedrooms, full bath, and a large mudroom with washer and dryer. Great place for all your skis or bikes. Upstairs is a large master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, queen-size bed, full bath, oak floors, and spectacular views of Mount Crested Butte.

The home is furnished with fresh linens and bedding. There are goose down comforters on all the beds. The kitchen is fully-equipped for food preparation and dining. The living area has cable TV/DVD and stereo and broadband Internet access. The yard is perfect for your canine friends. Everything in town is within easy walking distance.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We are American diplomats; we are currently serving America's critical interests in two different countries :(, Lizzie in Iraq and Charlie in Kenya. We enjoy difficult places because it makes a difference, we think. Our son loves America, and having visited 25 different countries and living in 6 countries on three continents, decided to attend the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. He loves boarding school (we hate it, but...) He's a baseball star, and next year we all hope he plays at the college level. He's dashingly handsome, huh? We have lived and visited all around the world, and decided that Crested Butte would be home: it is absolutely beautiful, and has some of the most interesting, friendly, and least self-possessed people we have ever met. Wild Iris is our home sweet home...until we quit this crazy Foreign Service life we'll share it with you. Come check out Crested butte..you'll love it!

                          Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte:
                          Beautiful country...interesting people....friendly people.....a town you can still walk in and chat with everyone you see.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          You can leave your car behind and walk everywhere...now that's freedom, the perfect escape! It's a 5 minute walk to everywhere. We take our son up to the top of the mountains in summer and have a picnic, and then let him mountain bike home....all downhill. The house has lots of character, as do all the people.
