Crested Butte barn description

This unique property was originally a barn for mules! No kidding! It was deconstructed and moved to a town lot for people to inhabit and enjoy. Keeping all the charm of a barn with modern day conveniences, this one of a kind property will be talked about for years to come! Three bedrooms on the lower level, one with a king bed, one queen and one twin room share a full bath. The second floor boasts a large kitchen with washer/dryer, dining and living area, and a second full bath. The upstairs loft has two twin beds and a queen bed. For the little ones there is another small loft that can sleep two. The Barn is in walking distance to the bus stop (free bus every 15 minutes all day every day) which takes you to the base of Mt. Crested Butte ski area. It is also located in walking distance to the quaint downtown area that has unique shopping and dining opportunities. Immediately down the street is a large park with playground equipment, a soccer field and picnic pavillion with restrooms. The rec path for bikers, hikers or walkers is also a very short walk away. In summer you can hike and bike from the Barn and in winter you can cross country ski directly from the house. Included in rental are two cruiser bikes for summer or winter.

                        My family had another fantastic stay at the Mule Barn!! We have been staying there for the past 13 years (the front unit) and truly enjoyed visiting Susan's unit for the first time. The unit is well appointed (all new appliances) and certainly "kid friendly" as well as relaxing for the adults. The boys loved the loft, it was the perfect space for them! The location is ideal for everything you want to do in Crested Butte. A shuttle bus to the mountain is just at the end of the block. The shopping, dining and grocery store are all within walking distance. You cannot go wrong booking your stay at the Mule Barn while visiting Crested Butte.

                        The Mule barn is a great place to stay and apparently well known. On our way into Crested Butte we stopped at Monarch ski resort for a few runs. The bartender at the lodge asked where we were heading and when we told him about the Historic Mule Barn he actually knew the house we were talking about.

                        I would absolutely recommend staying at the mule barn. We had 9 adults and were all comfortable. If my kids had been with us they would have had a ball in this place. Very well kept, clean and cozy and decorated in a uniquely warm way. Great kitchen for cooking with everything you need to cook and plenty of room for dining. Loved the wood burning stove at the end of a long day of skiing. Short walk to the shuttles, grocery store and main street of town so no need at all for a car. Great little entry way with plenty of storage for all the ski gear. Separate thermostats by room to set for personal comfort. We had an amazing time and enjoyed our stay at the mule barn. We will absolutely stay here again.

                        The Mule Barn was a fun, relaxing, rustic place, perfect for a family gathering. We were in town for a nephew's wedding so my brother and his wife, my sister, and my daughter and I stayed here for a week of festivities. The living area provided plenty of space for relaxation and was roomy enough to have extra people drop by. The location was good for walking to restaurants and shops, and the 4 Way Stop was at the end of the street (for bus shuttle to the mountain). The only negative was that the Internet and wifi were not working while we were there. Also, the spiral stairs were funky and fun, but not for small children or anyone with limited motor skills.

                        Owner response: We are happy to know you enjoyed our place! Sorry about the wifi situation. It has been corrected and should not be a problem in the future should you decide to return to Crested Butte!

                        The mule barn was all we'd envisioned...comfortable, room for plenty of socializing, and nicely located close to downtown CB. The living room invites you to sit and chat after long hikes or bike rides. We didn't cook, but the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you'd need. I would not recommend this rental for anyone who has trouble with stairs. The spiral staircase was fun and funky, but could be tough on those who have mobility concerns. We especially appreciated having a washer/dryer on site, a balcony for drying wet shoes when caught in the afternoon thunder showers, and the two "townie" bikes available for exploring. The owner was flexible and relaxed to work with, and responsive to all our needs. We would definitely return!

                        We spent the weekend at the Mule Barn. It is rustic and perfect for gathering friends and family for a weekend of nordic skiing. Charming, funky, casual and just what we like about Crested Butte! Location is good and the kitchen is very functional. We'll choose to stay at the mule barn again!

                        I spent New Years 2013 with a group of friends in Crested Butte. We had a fantastic time at the Mule Barn...it was located within a short walking distance from town/shuttle buses and was the perfect size for our group of 10. Highlights of the property include a spacious kitchen, a wood burning fireplace and two full sized bathrooms. The owner was accommodating and easy to work with.

                        Wow! If you are looking for a cookie cutter condo then this unique place is not for you. However, if you want to stay in a one-of-a-kind property then make your reservation right now. This architecturally significant home is in a great location to walk to all the quaint shops and restaurants in the town of Crested Butte. Plus its a half block walk to the mountain shuttle. The property is beautifully furnished and well maintained. The pictures can't capture it's complete charm. Wish we could stay longer and can't wait to come back.
