  • Wonderful Stay

    "We stayed in this home 5 nights in mid-September. It was the perfect time to visit Crested Butte. The house is in a great location, a short drive to town. It's clean and spacious. The house was well-stocked with linens and anything you could want in the kitchen. The master bedroom upstairs had amazing views. The owner came by to visit during our stay. We reported a few maintenance issues, which he took care of immediately. We would stay again and we would recommend it to others."

    "We enjoyed our stay at the house - it was perfect for relaxing with the family, cooking dinner and chatting after skiing. The heated floors, wonderful finishing and decorating, care with details and great kitchen with everything we could want made our vacation enjoyable. Everything was set up to make our experience as enjoyable as possible. Thank you!"

  • Lovely Home with Terrific Views

    "We enjoyed a lovely four night stay at this beautiful home across President's Day weekend. We were two families, including four adults and three children (ages 1 through 10). The house is laid out extremely well, with two large private master suites and a bunk room that's terrific for kids. There is ample room for ski gear and boots etc in the large entrance and mudroom. The great room is large and comfortable for hanging out and enjoying the awesome views and unbelievable sunshine that beams in all afternoon. The photos online do not do it justice. The one piece of feedback we gave after our visit was that the pots and pans were past their prime and could use updating. The manager, who is fantastic and super responsive and made organizing our stay very easy, said she would take care of it. It was a minor annoyance in what was otherwise a great stay."

  • Great First Experience at Crested Butte - Thanks to this Condo

    "Our family spent a wonderful weekend at this beautiful condo! With three bedrooms, there was enough space for two adult couples, a fifth adult, plus a toddler and an infant! There is a lift line that is 50 yards from the front door. The underground garage accommodated two vehicles. This place has ALL the amenities you need. And the property manager (Paige) was responsive and very easy to deal with."
