About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Bear West is located on Butte Avenue in downtown Crested Butte. Walk out the front door and head left two blocks to the Lower Loop walking/biking/cross-country trail. Located only 4 blocks from Elk Ave. Bear West provides you with a quiet setting to come home to, yet keeps you near the heartbeat of a wonderful town. Park your car, because at Bear West you are only a walk or bike ride away from restaurants, shopping, the movie theatre and adventure. During the winter the free town shuttle to Mt. Crested Butte and skiing is only 4 blocks away.

Bear West has three bedrooms on the main floor. The master bedroom has a king size bed with full bath renovated pring 2014. The second and third bedrooms contain queen size beds. Down comforters on all these beds will keep you nice and toasty. Bear West has a sunny 1st floor family room with a TV making it a good spot to relax. The laundry room has a full sized washer and dryer.

The 2nd floor has an expansive living room with an absolutely gorgeous kitchen fully equipped for cooking and entertaining. The high ceiling in the living room gives you an open feeling. The Western decor is filled with fun accents and a large leather sectional for lounging. Step outside onto the deck to a gas BBQ grill and adirondack chairs. There is a loft off the living area with twin beds. A half bath accommodates the 2nd floor.

The backyard with a well maintained landscaping is cared for personally by the managers. In the summer flowers flourish! The backyard is not fenced.

Wonderful but too brief!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 10th or 11th time I've rented Bear West. Love the location and great hosts, Deb and Doug.

Owner's Response: Thanks Michael. Fun to watch your family grow up over the years. I'm sure the next time your visit will be longer, perhaps in the fall. Debra Reich

GReat property, location, and owners

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed, comfortable house, lots of room, friendly owners. Quiet location at edge of town, but still only a few blocks from the main happenings. What else can you want?

Also flexible enough to have a 1-night minimum, which sadly not many allow.

First Class but not at all fussy

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited town on a book tour and were put up here for two nights. Since we rent our own home on VRBO when we're away, we have some opinions about what makes a great rental.

After staying here, we may be stealing some ideas.

The location is great, on the edge of the old town, within easy walking distance of the main commercial street and close to the trailhead that leads to biking and running trails. If you're into exploring town and getting a feel for the funky community, this is the best possible location.

The house has been newly renovated (we were told we'd taken the first shower in the expansive new master bathroom shower). The layout has flipped the space so the upstairs is a great room and well-equipped kitchen with a loft above. We found everything we could want in the kitchen, including a fully stocked spice cabinet. The great room is furnished in comfortable cowboy style, and there's plenty of room for multiple activities in the space.

Downstairs, there's a feeling of privacy for all three bedrooms, plus, there's a small tv/reading room at the end of the hall, which can help segment larger groups.

The furnishing and decor has character but doesn't feel worn. Linens and mattresses first rate. Wifi worked flawlessly.

Two clunker loaner bikes were available for running errands in this very bike- and walker-friendly town, so a car is not necessary.

It's too big a place for just two people who might want a romantic getaway, but we didn't feel dwarfed.

Highly recommended.
