"We planned to spend some quality time this summer in Crested Butte, and had a lot of choices of accommodation. On the recommendation of a good friend who had stayed here in the past, we chose this lovely condo in The Meadows, and it was perfect in every way.
Firstly, the location is ideal for families and groups. Parking is just in front of the door, and the corner unit means easy access and no trouble with neighbors. There is a convenience store at the local gas station just minutes away for getting snacks, and although we did not use the bus, the stop is very close in case one wants to go up the mountain by public transport.
There was everything we needed for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. As a family with a baby and young children, we used the kitchen a lot, including daily breakfast, frozen pizzas in the convection oven (delicious and available at the local grocery), and even a full-on dinner party with some old friends in town. Everything was carefully considered when planning and organizing this rental. As seasoned travellers who have a lot of experience with private rentals, we appreciated the attention to detail and the thorough guest/tourist information.
The views were spectacular with a great deal of natural light, and blinds on all of the windows also provided both added insulation and privacy. The children loved having their own rooms downstairs, we all felt right at home in the living area on the second floor, and the bedding was super comfortable. We were in town during the summer so we didn't need to use the heating/cooling very much, but the temperature was just right. Showers (and bath for the baby) were hot and relaxing.
Since we were visiting from abroad, it was fun for the kids to have access to a variety of TV channels, and there were videos, toys, and games available for them too. It was truly like our home during our stay, and we made memories that will last a lifetime. FAR superior to any hotel experience.
The property manager was available and helpful, meeting us and answering our questions, and the entire process of reservation, confirmation, payment, etc. was very easy to deal with. I highly recommend this place to anyone coming to Crested Butte for a family or group holiday, and we plan to stay here again in the future. Access to the historic town makes it a perfect home base for exploring all that CB has to offer, summer or winter.
We'll be back!
