Property description

Bluebell Cottage, completely remodeled in 2009 and refurnished and decorated in 2015, offers the charms of Crested Butte’s colorful past with all the modern amenities available today. Located on the western-most block of Elk Avenue, the cottage is just steps away from dining, shopping and other entertainment. Dedicated off-street parking is located behind the cottage and the ski mountain shuttle is just one block away.


The lower level open-concept living space is elegant and spacious, with hardwood floors throughout, antique Oriental carpets, beamed ceilings, many large windows with a bright sunny exposure.


The living room is stylishly furnished to comfortably seat 4-6. Entertainment systems include a flat screen television with satellite, DVD, stereo, and wifi.


Adjacent dining area farm table seats 6 and provides a lovely space for family dinners or entertaining friends.


The roomy fully-equipped cook’s kitchen comes with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Ample storage and counter space make this kitchen a delightful place to prepare meals and to enjoy casual dining at the breakfast bar with seating for 4.


The lower level full bath with shower/tub includes washer and dryer facilities.


The second level includes two nice-sized bedrooms, each with a comfortable queen-sized bed, closet and additional storage for clothing. Both bedrooms have recently been upgraded with new furniture and bedding. New high quality mattress and boxsprings have been recently added in the master bedroom. A single futon, located in second bedroom provides for separate sleeping arrangements when desired. The half-bath is located in the hallway between the bedrooms.


Mature trees and beautiful perennial gardens add to the cottage charm. A brick patio at the rear of the cottage is furnished with dining table, market umbrella and gas grill for outdoor cooking, dining, or enjoying a cocktail while watching the Crested Butte world go by. A charming flagstone patio and garden was added to the west side yard in the fall of 2014, doubling the outdoor living space. The newly landscaped area overlooks Elk Avenue, providing endless entertainment right from your own side yard!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Having lived on the Front Range for decades, our family has had the opportunity to travel and to experience many places in Colorado. Our boys grew up skiing and snowboarding in Summit County and Vail, where we formerly owned property. But when we discovered Crested Butte on our first visit in 2001, we knew that we had found our place.

Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte:
We love the unspoiled beauty of the mountains as well as the unique and historic town, the friendly locals, and quirky customs in Crested Butte. It is a real place and a real community, not just a tourist destination. And though tourism is welcome, it does not define the character of the town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We feel so fortunate to have finally found a place in the mountains where it all comes together: the community, architecture, natural setting, recreation opportunities, and interesting folks. Spending time at our home here is always a joy that we experience as often as possible.
