- CB's Shotgun Shack is located on the upper west side in the Town of Crested Butte, quiet but with great access to trails and to main street. Ski one of the nordic trails out the door, take a nice walk out peanut lake rd or take the quick shuttle up to the mountain for some fresh turns and then come back to town for Apres ski and dinner. Great Location! We love to ski the mountain and then shuttle back into town for a happy hour beer at Kochevars or the Eldo, Grab a killer burger at the Last Steep, mac & cheese at the West End or drunken noodles at Ryce, finish it off with a custom hand distilled rum hot toddy at Montanya. ...moreless

My two kids and I spent 4 days at the Shotgun Shack, alas my husband could not join us. The snow was incredible but the house even better. We really enjoyed staying here and when our friends came over for dinner they were just as impressed with the beauty of the home. This home is impeccably decorated and clean. Paul & Monica were extremely helpful and responsive.

We had a wonderful time staying in the Shotgun Shack just after Christmas this year. Place is very cozy and comfortable with great amenities, and a short walk to Elk avenue restaurants and shuttle stop for the mountain. Owner was responsive and great to deal with. Would stay here again, it was just right for our family (wife and I, 14 and 10 year old boys).

Manager response: Thank you Graham and Family! You were great to deal with as well and we welcome you and your family back anytime! The ski season is still young!
Great in-town rental.
Great in-town rental.
A wonderful location, just 3 blocks from Elk Ave with all the shops and restaurants, and the bus stop to the ski area. White glove clean and very nicely decorated. A big plus for excellent bedside reading lamps, and kitchen stocked with essential spices and basics like oil, mustard etc. Very fairly priced. Crested Butte is the best of Colo. mountain towns...not a chain store in sight. Try Camp 4 for coffee and pastries in the morning or after skiing.

Manager response: Thank you Sigrid for the kind words! We are so happy you and your family had a great stay! Please come back soon!
We stayed at the 'Shotgun Shack' during a summer holiday and it was beyond anything we could have hoped for. We didn't expect it to be so modern and pristine with the name 'Shotgun Shack.' The whole place is beautifully remodeled with modern touches and fun accents throughout. It is just a few blocks from everything and you cannot go wrong with the view. Walk out the front door and you are surrounded by majestic mountain views. Walk 10 minutes and you are hiking some of the most beautiful mountain trails in Colorado, if not the world. This is a perfect place to stay any time of year and suits a family getaway with kids or all out adventure with friends!

Year Purchased: 2009
About: Hi! we’re Paul and Monica and we have been living, skiing, and working in Crested Butte for several years when we bought the shotgun shack and with some sweat equity and a vision this trailer and shed turned in a modern cozy house. Monica went to Western State College in Gunnison 20 years ago and as soon as her skis cut the fresh pow on the steeps of Mt Crested Butte she was in love. After some years working in Denver, she and Paul connected and discovered their joint love for skiing the steep and deep and adventure and since then have skied, boated, and hiked together across the American West. We have also worked and traveled to Antarctica, South East Asia, New Zealand, South Pacific, Mexico and Central America. We eventually found our way home to Crested Butte. We are temporarily on the East Coast working and decided to share our shotgun shack and magical ski town with good folks like you. We hope you’ll enjoy our place and Crested Butte as much as we do.
Why Crested Butte:
CB is Home. We’ve been around the world and there’s no place like Crested Butte it’s beautiful, funky and is truly the last great ski town left in Colorado. We hope you’ll make the Shotgun Shack and Crested Butte your home away from home too.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sweeping views from our living room, funky local fabulousness, killer location for adventure, quiet and in town fun. Enjoy our Shotgun Shack.
