                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We live in Texas full time (and get to CB as often as we can). When we acquired Winterset, we decided to exercise our 'inner B&B' and make our second home available to family, friends and vacationing guests when we can't be there. We travel extensively - having stayed in many VRBO properties - and through that experience, hope to deliver to our guests the experience of staying in a close friend's home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte:
                      We learned to ski in CB in the 70's and have been coming back ever since. We LOVE CB in the Winter and only recently discovered the summer magic of the Gunnison Valley! To that end, we fell in love with Winterset the moment we walked through the front door and saw the jaw-dropping views of Snodgrass and the Elk Mountains. But, the charm of the home had us at 'Hello.' The wood floors, the reclaimed wood inside and out, the grillin' deck, the hot tub and the view of Mt. Crested Butte from the kitchen sink window.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Climb Mt. Crested Butte. Ski (XC or downhill). Lounge by the wood burning fireplace in the Great Room or Master Bedroom. Mountain bike or hike two minutes from the driveway. Sip coffee or cocktails on three separate decks with breathtaking mountain views. Watch hummingbird social idiosyncrasies all day long. Head to the little town of Crested Butte (a 10 minute, 3 mile drive or bike). Your choice. You are in a home, not a rental. And, you are guests, not renters. And this is YOUR vacation. So do it all. Or don't do any of it. No pressure. The only rule is that you must leave Winterset and Mt. Crested Butte renewed, refreshed and reinvigorated. And come back again.
