  • Perfect House for Ski Vacation

    "Our group (2 families, 8 persons) has rented this house two years in a row now to ski at Crested Butte over the New Year's holiday. It is truly a PERFECT mountain getaway home. The kids (and the adults) have a great time with the pool/ping pong tables and the hot tub; the bedrooms are comfy & cozy; and the living areas are spacious and very homey. The kitchen is VERY nice and quite modern - perfect for our group of eight to prepare meals, eat, and fellowship together. Overall, I cannot think of a single negative about this house: it's very close to Crested Butte, it's views are AMAZING, and it is meticulously maintained. Best Deal in the Crested Butte area!"

  • Best kept secret!

    "My family and I just returned from our week stay at this home. It was clean and spacious for the four of us. It was surprisingly quiet especially for being located on the main street. Great location...walking distance to a lot of things. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks!"

  • Clean and comfortable

    "Location is ideal to shopping, dining and free Gondola. Underground parking was a life saver after 30 inches of snow. Saved us from having to dig a few hundred pounds of snow from the back of our truck. Once parked, we did not drive for our entire stay. Everything is close to this location. The basic kitchen necessities are supplied. We love to cook but based off a few other reviews, opted to bring a few specialty kitchen items of our own which came in handy. When I get back to Telluride, this is where I will stay again."

  • A perfect place for a family Thanksgiving

    "We spent Thanksgiving here, to be close to our son. The cabin was perfect: well furnished & clean, with a well appointed kitchen that made Thanksgiving dinner (and other meals) a snap; a wood stove with a healthy supply of firewood; and a hot tub that was ready when we arrived. We had the privacy we wanted with easy access to many of the places that activities that Durango has to offer. Electra Lake with spectacular views of the San Juan Mountains and Chicago Basin was a short and pleasant walk from the cabin. Its close to the ski resort but not too far from Durango; and a reasonable drive to Silverton. And if this wasn't enough, the owners were very friendly, accommodating and flexible with arrival and departure times. On previous trips, we have stayed in Durango, but this was definitely a huge improvement; and we look forward to returning."
