About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

WELCOME TO CRESTED BUTTE, the last of Colorado's great ski towns! Here you'll find uncrowded, world class ski slopes and delightful Victorian architecture. CB is known for its gourmet restaurants, shops, and cozy pubs featuring nightly entertainment. In the winter, CB is a skier's paradise. In summer, it's a mecca for hikers, mountain bikers, fishermen, and golfers drawn by its unparalled trail access and stunning scenic beauty. Unlike many ski towns, CB is a historic mining town, still much as it was 100 years ago, unspoiled by fast food outlets and chain stores. The crowds in this off-the-beaten-path location are small, and the locals are friendly and happy to see you.

While you're in CB, plan to stay in our condo in the Columbine Condo complex. Our ground floor front door is just steps away from the slopes, just above the Base Area and the high speed Silver Queen and Red Lady lifts. Skiing in or out couldn't be easier or more convenient. Come inside and take in the view of Mt. Emmons, Mt. Axtell, and Mt. Whetstone in the background, with skiers and snowboarders of every kind whiz by in the foreground. Our unit sleeps two adults in the bedroom's queen bed, and an additional two can sleep in the sofabed in the living room. The beds have down comforters. Amenities rival those of the finest hotels, even down to complimentary soap and shampoo. The condo was recently remodeled and all furniture and appliances are new.

Apres ski, indulge in a dip in the outdoor hot tub with other Columbine guests. There are also a shared steam room and outdoor gas grill. Then come home to a toasty wood fire right in your own living room. All the wood you can burn is neatly stacked outside the front door. Also included: DVD and CD players, free cable TV with HBO, and high speed wireless Internet. There is a coin-operated laundry a few steps away, in the same building. A free shuttle bus to anywhere in CB stops just outside.

Why is THIS condo so special? At first glance, the features are similar to those of many other ski vacation rentals. But what the others don't have is TRUE ski-in/ski-out convenience. Here, the front door is just a few steps from the slope. There are no stairs, elevators, or long hotel hallways to navigate while lugging skis, boots, and poles. Plus, it's just a short walk from the restaurants, shops, and nightlife of the main base area. Beware of ski-in/ski-out accommodations near the Westwall, Peachtree, Gold Link, or Prospect lifts -- they are far, far away. And another thing... Outdoor parking, right on the edge of the ski slope, right in front of the condo, is included with your rental. Even parking in the expensive VIP area of the pay lots wouldn't get you such convenience!

If you're coming in summer, the condo is perfectly positioned for quiet enjoyment and great trail access. Whether you're hiking or mountain biking, a wide-ranging trail network starts right outside your door, criss-crossing Mt. Crested Butte and going far beyond. Hike directly to the spectacular summit, or ride a chair lift up and bike down. A golden world of alpine beauty in the town they call the Wildflower Capital of Colorado will be yours.

It's easy to book our Columbine one bedroom condo. You deal directly with us, the owners. We try to keep our rates reasonable compared to what you'll find elsewhere in Crested Butte. We encourage you to book directly through VRBO as it's simple, straightforward, and safe. Ready to book? You can click 'Book It Now', or if you have questions, send us an inquiry through VRBO. We're very friendly and we'll be glad to address your concerns.

Yes, we DO keep our Availability Calendar up-to-date!

Note on off-season (spring and fall) rentals: Some services like the hot tub and shuttle bus may not be available. Ski lifts will not be running, and trails may be impassable due to snow and mud. That's why our off-season rates are lower.

Why Janet Furman chose Mount Crested Butte

We discovered Crested Butte on a family road trip in the summer of 2004, and fell in love. We had visited other Colorado ski towns, but none compared with the scenic beauty, open vistas, and rustic charm of CB. Much of Colorado has scenic beauty, so that's really saying something! In summer, we loved the extensive trail system, which are equally accessible to hikers and mountain bikers. We came back that winter to experience the ski area, and possibly look at real estate. The ski area turned out to be just what we were dreaming of - big, uncrowded, plenty of varied terrain from easy groomers to challenging double-diamonds. And the snow - light, fluffy, abundant. We did look at real estate. We bought a small home and a ski-in/ski-out condo. Now we come as often as we can, staying in the home and renting out the condo. The condo has only one bedroom, but what a treat to stay there and ski right from the front door! We hope you have the chance to share our Crested Butte obsession!

Great location on the mountain and tremendous views!

  • 4 of 5

The location of the property is the best, even when there is little to no snow to ski in/out.

It's a basic one bedroom with enough amenities to get by for the week. We cook a lot, so a few kitchen items are needed. The hot tub and it;s views were a big highlight of the day, watching the sun set over the mountains. The unit definitely needs a makeover and the pull out couch has seen it's better days. The mattress on it is terrible from years of use. Big holes where you sink into the mattress. Had to sleep just on the couch itself. Needs remodel.

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Janet's condo! The location was the best on the mountain, and we took more trips to the hot tub (steps away) then we could count! We enjoyed walking to town via the pedestrian path (3.5 miles), gazing out her picturesque window, snuggling by the fire and enjoying the crisp, cool weather. It was the perfect getaway for 2 - and we are already searching other dates to come back during ski season. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in the perfect ski-in/ski-out (or bike-in/bike-out for us) location. The views out the front windows are breathtaking. The condo was the perfect size for our family of four for a fantastic summer vacation. We will look to book here again for our next trip to The Butte!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this cozy condo! We didn't realize that most of the mountain would be shut down, bad timing on our part but we still had a great time. The views from the condo is amazing!! I wish I could add a photo of a little fox friend who came right to the door for a visit! We will definitely come back for some summer and winter activities.

Wonderful view and unmatched convenience

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful stay! The ski in/ski out convenience was unbeatable. Clean and cozy condo. And the view was incredible. A couple of suggestions: a crock pot and a flat screen TV would be nice. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever and I would recommend this condo to anyone who wants and enjoyable vacation!
