  • Spring Break fun

    "Shared this house with two other families with kids. Spring Break in Crested Butte. It was perfect. Plenty of space for all and the upstairs rec room was a hit. Easy trip to town and the ski mountain. Would recommend this for a family getaway."

  • Wood Family

    "Absolutely the best vacation. Argenta Falls Cabin was perfect. Loved the location, secluded, on the Alpine Loop, yet just 10 minutes to Lake City. Cabin was clean, well equipped with everything you need. Loved the large porch for morning coffee or relaxing after a full day exploring. We hiked Handies Peak, Jeeped the Alpine Loop, Kayak on Lake San Cristobal, Moose stalked at Deer Lakes, Horseback rides at Vickers Ranch, Michael Martin Murphy outdoor concert at the Sportsman Gas Station. Small town filled with so much to do. Will be back again."

  • Perfect Girls getaway for New Years

    "Myself and three girlfriends rented this house for week ski trip. It was surprisingly nicer than the photos show. Two bedrooms in the downstairs made it very easy to move suitcases in and out. The bunk beds were sizable and comfortable for adult women to sleep in. The second floor living space was large and made staying in for dinner one night quite comfortable. We could easily congregate at the bar area, couches or dining table. The balcony on the second floor level had a great view of the mountain. The bedroom on the top floor was very large. There was a foam roller in the closet in the upstairs bedroom which came in quite handy after a long day of skiing. Having two bathrooms made it easy for us to all shower and hit the town after skiing. It was an easy 10 minute walk to get to the bars and restaurants in town. The parking for the house is on a back alley, not front street. It would have been difficult to find but the owner gave very good directions. We only had one car but if we had another parking would have been a bit difficult. We would definitely consider renting this house again if we get back to Crested Butte. A great house and pleasure to deal with the owner!"
