  • PRESIDENTS DAY WEEKEND

    "We had the pleasure of renting this home over the long holiday weekend. We traveled with a large group (6 families) and the home had plenty of room for everyone. We normally go to Steamboat Springs and have rented many properties over the years. This year we decided to try Crested Butte and we are so glad we did. We all agreed this was the best rental we have ever stayed in. Mike was great to work with and everything went smoothly. The house was well stocked and we were able to prepare and enjoy a lot of our meals together. The view from the house is absolutely amazing. The location is ideal. Just a short drive into town. I would highly recommend this rental and would love to stay there again."

  • Simply perfect

    "As the tittle says. This rental was simply perfect!!! Location, location, location. Even though is a good 35 minutes to the ski area, is actually a very nice and scenic drive. Close to restaurants and the grocery store. As far as the condition of the cabin, it was very clean, it has everything you need and more. The open space and no neighbors conditions are great! The front deck is great for grilling and having the beverage of your choice while staring at the beautiful view!! Service was a no issue. All questions answered and the provided instructions are easy to follow. As I said and I reoest again: Simply Perfect!!! P.S. We will try to book it next year!!"
