Property description

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.

****As of mid Feb 2016, when paying by credit card through the VRBO site you will see a new ~9% Service Fee on top of the calculated rental price. We would be happy to answer any questions you have about this VRBO fee - please call, text or email us for more information.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte, CO, USA:
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.
