About the property

The Crested Butte Love Shack - A fully decked-out Cabin in the heart of downtown CB.

Experience a piece of Crested Butte, Colorado history. This updated Cabin is one of the original Crested Butte structures dating back to the mining era of the 1890's. Just steps from historic Elk Avenue, the location cannot be beat. Shopping, dining, recreation trails, and the mountain (ski) shuttle bus are close by. The view of Mount Crested Butte from the Cabin is inspirational. Winter cross-county trails and summer wildflower hikes start a block from the front door.

This cozy, open-concept Cabin, filled with light and character, features a loft sleeping area, one bathroom, and a fully outfitted kitchen - perfect for a couple but in a pinch, it can also accommodate two more on a comfy queen futon in the living area. (Or, if loft sleeping isn't your thing, the futon can be set up as a bed prior to your arrival to make this Cabin perfect studio-like accommodations for 2 guests.) The exterior has a fenced-in yard with seating areas and a propane grill. There is also a locked shed to house any skis/bikes/gear you bring with you.

If you are looking for history mixed with the latest technology (including security enabled high-speed wireless internet and DirecTv with satellite radio), you will find it here. This intimate, comfortable Cabin proves that great vacations and memories can come in small packages...

This non-traditional Cabin is perfect for the young-at-heart! It is located on First Street in Crested Butte, Colorado (just off of Elk Ave) - scroll down to the map below to see the fantastic location. Well behaved pets are welcome for a small fee.

About Sheryl

Welcome to the magical land that is Crested Butte. We're glad you found us. Both Sheryl and Trevor have a long history with this wonderful town...separately finding our way here sometime around 1993 from New Hampshire and Vermont, respectively. Although we were both ski/snowboard bums around the same time, we never met until we were both daily-grind career types in Boston 7 years later. We shared similar friends in Boston and, low and behold, after our first conversation, we found out we had a lot of the same Crested Butte friends as well. Synchronicity. If you believe in the concept, you'll find it runs heavy here. In 2002, Trevor and Sheryl moved back to Colorado, bought this little cabin and nicknamed it the Love Shack. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Sheryl purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Sheryl chose Crested Butte Area

After traveling around the world, we both agree - Crested Butte is truly one of the most beautiful places either of us has ever been. We think you'll agree, too.


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Cozy, beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Love Shack for over a week at the end of September. What a beautiful and cozy place! It is close to everything in town, great coffee and bagels just around the corner, farmers market on Sundays when in season, bike in bike out to beautiful trails. Loved the smell of freshly baked bread in the evening and star-studded sky at night available for viewing from the back deck! Hiking/biking trails are out of this world in CB, especially during the fall foliage. The cabin is equipped with everything you need for your stay. Highly recommended!

Rustic Cabin

  • 3 of 5

This cabin is in a great location! A short walk to downtown and the bus route to CBMR. You can walk downtown to eat, drink and shop. There is a bed in the loft over the kitchen and a Futon in the living room. You definitely have to come to Crested Butte and stay at the cabin, especially if there is one or two people only. More than two will be too tight. There is a great patio with a grill in the backyard. It's a great place for an afternoon read. The Guild is directly behind the cabin so the hint of baked goods are almost always in the air. You just have to walk out the front door and around the corner for great coffee, food and baked goods (breakfast dishes, scones, muffins, turnovers, bread, etc.). Come stay for the location, the access to town, free transportation to the resort and amazing views.
