Recent Southwest reviews

  • Close to Nordic Center, Ice skating rink, sledding hill, and the shuttle stop is around the corner!

    "Great location, and a very pleasant and functional home, perfect for our family of 5. The parking in the back was a big plus, as we watched the neighbors move their cars from one side of the street to the other every day. There is a natural food store a block and 1/2 away, called Mountain Earth - it's like mini Whole Foods. A wonderful bakery/breakfast place called Mountain Oven/The Guild is 5 min walk away. There was so much snow: we xc skied through town to nordic trails. Watching the torchlight parade on the mountain on New Year's eve from the top bedroom windows was a bonus. We found the place very quiet, despite its proximity to Elk street restaurants and bars. The shuttle stop is around the corner and it's really easy to get to the mountain. The kids went to the ice skating rink or to the sledding hill for their Après-ski activity every day! We would like to stay here on our next trip to Crested Butte, thank you, Daniel and Kate!"

  • Christmas Trip Exceeded Expectations

    "Three generations had fun! Eleven of us! Parents appreciated the ski locker near the lift. Eight minutes from Overlook to the slopes. The pool table and kitchen were busy each evening. Appy and Meme enjoyed the view overlooking the town, fireplace, and their space! We'll plan a return trip! Coal Creek Grill, Secret Stash, Ryce were welcome restaurants. Craig goes the second and third mile to make sure everything is right and is a great resource."

  • The Observatory

    "Nothing compares to a night in the observatory. I celebrated my bachelor party there under a full moon during a lunar eclipse. The experience was nothing less than spiritual. The access to back-country chutes from a first class cabin is unparalleled."
