Crested Butte house description

This beautifully-restored National Historic District home combines comfort, convenience and Victorian charm to provide you with the ideal lodging for your family or group. Located at the end of Elk Ave in the heart of Crested Butte, this house is a minute's walk to shopping, dining and the free shuttle bus that runs around town and up to Crested Butte Mountain. Once you have parked your car in the driveway it can stay parked throughout your vacation.

Imagine yourself returning to your vacation home after a day of winter skiing, snowmobiling or snow-shoeing and enjoying a relaxing hot bath in the Jacuzzi then sipping on a cup of hot coca by the fire. Imagine in the summer you have just enjoyed a hike in a field of wildflowers or a ride on an exiting trail on your mountain bike. You then return to your relaxing mountain retreat and take a revitalizing steam shower. Then imagine enjoying a pleasant dinner with friends and family on the outdoor patio or reading a book in the sunroom or on the front porch. Wow! What a vacation to remember.

What ever you do in our picturesque West Elk Mountains this home is the best choice for your not-so primitive base camp. Please take a moment to visit our web site to learn more about this unique vacation home, area activities, location map, nightly rates, and availability information.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I have been remodeling buildings in Crested Butte with the goal of bringing modern comfort to historic charm since the late 70's. I am an EMT-Paramedic/Firefighter and a ski patrol. I have been a real estate broker since 1984. If you are looking for an experienced, independent realtor with a quarter century of living, working and playing in these West Elk Mountains to represent you honestly and diligently in your search for property; I'm here for you. Call My Cell 970 349 5407 “Any sign, Any time”

Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte:
22 Elk Avenue is the last house on left as you drive up Crested Butte National Historic Distrct's main Street. It is the ultimate neighborhood in this town. Close to restaurants, shopping and the free bus shuttle. You can ride your mountain bike or cross country ski out your door and access miles of epic trails without ever touching pavement. I have no proof but knowing the area and having been the Chair of the Gunnison County Historic Preservation Commission for ten years I am convinced that this is where native americans set up their camps for thousands of years and european settlers followed their example to put their main Street. The superior micro climate is noticeable from even blocks away as you are protected from windier storm paths. Today's vacationer can enjoy being in the core of town and the edge of it at the same time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Crested Butte Mountasin Resort is one of the best ski mountains in the country. The extreme's are challenging and plentiful. The quality of slope grooming has risen to world class in recent years. The terrain parks and features (my son's winter habitat) are state of the art. Telemark skiing was reborn here in the 70's. I remember taking my old school lace up downhill ski boots down to the saddlemaker in Gunnison to have him sew on vibram soles that would fit into the three pin bindings on my long skinny tele skis. The equipment has come along way and some of the top Tele skiers in the world ski this mountain. Crested Butte was also the place where mountain biking started. I bought my first 15 speed mountain bike from a friend in 1980 it was built here in 1977 on a little john frame using motorcycle drum breaks. You could not walk into a store and buy a mountain bike at the time. I still use this bike as my townie today. The personality of the community is what makes this town, friendly, athletic, cutting edge and socially responsible.
