About The Owner

Lise and I are both from Norway, and after having built up a shipping company in New York we retired to Bermuda. After a few years we developed island fever and realized how much we missed the mountains. We considered the options of Norway, the Alps or the Rocky Mountains. I Ching pointed us to the Rockies and this is how we ended up in fabulous Crested Butte.

The house was built in 2003.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Crested Butte

We love the mountains both summer and winter and what we found in Crested Butte was the perfect combination of mountains and ambiance . The creative touch of using large logs through out the home including a beautiful stairway , windows , walls and great ceiling formations makes us enjoy the home every moment we are there.

What makes this house unique

Slate River runs close by - 2 minutes walk from the house and on our river property, we have fishing rights which are conferred to our guests.. The Golf course is 2 minutes away , and the Golf club a 5 minutes drive.

Top of the line home in the Rockies

  • 5 of 5

Shangri-La is a magnificent fairy tale log home right out of Hansel and Gretel. We just loved it. The bedrooms are huge suites with corresponding sized bath rooms. The log work is highly artistic - with huge logs and the rock fireplace is 40' high. The outdoor jacuzzi is wonderful in the sun or moon lights. We have been coming. to Colorado the last 25 years and this is the most superior home we have stayed in. Spectacular views of the mountains. Fishing rights and golf course across the street. Great winding log stair case , large TV screens everywhere. We are booking our return for next year , and the year after.

The Best Ski Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

In January 2013 we were six close friends from Norway who had a marvelous stay at the Shangri-La in Crested Butte.?Shangri-La is a fairytale huge log house.?There are 5 suite sized bed rooms - each with spectacular views.??We had great snow conditions and everyone found their right challenge, the double-black diamond Extreme Limits were great fun!?We also had a guided Tour to the top of Red Lady (12,392' - 3,777 meters) in fresh powder with a great guide team.??We totally enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi in the moon light and cooling off in the snow in between sessions.??Shangri-La's catering chief Tim Egelhoff created an unforgettable menu for our birth day celebration. ??We look forward to come back.

Fletcher Family Vac 2013

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the beautiful Shangri La was absolutely the best. This house is is the perfect mountain getaway. Every room has breathtaking views of the mountain. The architecture of the home is amazing. The bedrooms are huge each with its own bath. There are windows in every room that open and allow the mountain air to flow freely through the home. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for preparing meals and dining at home. The massage chair, pool table, Slate River fishing (just steps from the back door) and golf was enjoyed by all. We have been coming to Crested Butte for our family vacations for over 20 years. The Shangri La is by far our favorite rental property. It will be our number 1 choice for future vacations. WE WILL BE BACK.

Fabulous home with plenty of room for large family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We shared this home with another family and had plenty of room. The bedrooms are large with great views. The family room and kitchen are great for large gatherings. It is 5 minutes from Crested Butte and 10 minutes from the mountain. Even though snow was dumped on us, the driveway and roads were maintained. This was not our first time to stay at Shangri-La and we will definitely be back. I highly recommend this home.

We felt like we had stepped into an enchanted world...

We felt like we had stepped into an enchanted world...

My friend and I stayed at Shangri La in Crested Butte at the height of the changing of the leaves in September 09. We arrived in Crest Butte at dusk, but had no difficulty locating the house. The arrival instructions were simple and clear. We felt like we had stepped into an enchanted world, upon entering this magnificent log home. We were truly in touch with the Old West, which is part of the fun of visiting the Rocky Mountains. Despite the large log detail, the house still has a wonderful feeling of intimacy and coziness. We stayed in the master suite, and felt completely at home. We used the outdoor spa each evening, and it was so wonderful after hikes and climbs each day. We ate breakfast each morning at the house, and were quite pleased with how well stocked the house is with such nice glassware, plates and silverware. The views from the bedroom were as good as from the great room. The soaring ceilings in the living room are dramatic, and the views back toward the Butte and the village are sensational. There is no question that our first choice for lodging on our next journey to Crested Butte will be Shangri La. Sincerely, Bill, world wide traveler
