Property description

Our Third Street home was designed with you in mind. This beautiful mountain lodge combines complete comfort with rustic elegance to provide you with ideal accommodations for families and large groups. Whether you prefer to ski our expert slopes or cruise the blues, flyfish our streams or stroll through fields of wildflowers, or just sit in the warmth of the sun and read a good book, our house is sure to renew your spirit and revitalize your body. What ever you choose to do, a stay at our house along with the majestic setting provides the perfect place to make memories that you will cherish forever.

This two-story log house has comfortable sleeping arrangements for 20 people. Located in Crested Butte, the house is centered in town on quiet side street near the free shuttle bus that runs right to the ski slopes. Please take time to visit the rest of our site for pictures and descriptions of the house interior, area activities, location map, nightly rates, and availability information.

From the start in 1990 the our house has existed for the sole purpose of making guest vacations special and memorable. Tell us what you need and we will make it happen. We emphasize personal service. Now in our 15th year we know all the secrets for ensuring a spectacular experience in central Colorado. We can point you to the best spots in the area for hiking, biking, skiing, and exploring the backcountry.

At our home we make it a very easy place to stay. Flexible check in, check out. TV/VCR, phone/fax, steam room, huge library, and large comfortable casual sun rooms. The house began with a log cabin over 100 years ago, and has the best of old and new, updated with excellence and comfort in mind. A panoramic view of the mountains and town dominate the breakfast room and living areas.

I look forward to hearing from you! - Rita

Owner info

About the owner: My husband and I moved to Crested Butte to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We came for the winters and stayed for the summers. We love the casual relaxed atmosphere of our mountain village. We ran this property as a Bed and Breakfast for 15 years so we have made all amenities with the perfect vacation in mind. We have had so much fun living here, hiking, biking and skiing and love to have visitors enjoy the house and town. Let us know what we can do to make your stay more enjoyable and we will take care of it.

Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte:
Best location in town, on Coal Creek with Colorado Wildflower garden in Front. 1 block to main street and all restaurants. Walk to all activities, hiking, x-country skiing and exploring Town of Crested Butte. 1 block to free shuttle for town and mountain. No car needed to get anywhere.
