Carriage House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)



The Carriage House is so special that many couples have stayed here for their wedding, honeymoon and even proposed marriage here!

GREAT IN-TOWN LOCATION on the coveted western, historic side of town. Being only 2 blocks from west Elk Avenue (the historic main street with boutique shops and wonderful restaurants), steps away from the free bus shuttle to Mt. Crested Butte, a few blocks from multiple trails, and only 5 minutes from the Arts Center and playground -- no car is required when you stay in this perfect location! It is in the middle of it all, yet very quiet, surrounded by horse pasture and across from the last bit of open space on the western side of town!

Being our guests you will be dazzled by SPECTACULAR, UNCOMPROMISED VIEWS of towering Mt. Crested Butte, Paradise Divide, Mt. Emmons, Whetstone, and Maroon Bells as well as the historic Kupushion barns.

LUXURIOUS LIVING ... Two bedrooms and two baths with beautiful furnishings, luxurious- high-quality bedding and linens, and many other cozy comforts make The Carriage House perfect for a small family or two couples (max 4). The upper floor has an open living space with vaulted ceilings over the GOURMET KITCHEN with steel island table with 4 stools (see stocking details in amenities) and the cozy living room where you can relax while taking in the amazing mountain views. The living room is outfitted with the latest home theatre system, flat screen TV, cable television, FAST WIRELESS INTERNET, and a cozy fireplace. Off the living room is the deck for catching some rays and admiring the beautiful views. Also located on the upper floor is the cowboy bedroom with 2 antique spindle twin beds and a slate tiled bathroom with shower.

The lower floor includes a beautifully furnished, inviting queen bedroom with a pillow top mattress, 600 thread Egyptian linens, down comforter and pillows, Afghani dowry chests and block prints and an exquisite travertine tiled bathroom and STEAM SHOWER with a Chinese Bedouin vanity, antique ceiling tiled mirror and big fluffy, eco-friendly towels. (Sorry - the garage is not available to guests.)

From the amazing 180 degrees view of the mountains, you can dine and relax on the outdoor patio complete with a Weber BBQ perfect for summer grilling, log double bench, teak wood table and chairs, and a big red market umbrella.

The house was completed in late Feb 2008. Here are comments from a couple of our recent guests:

Guests # 1

'We are at the Carriage House and it is fabulous! Everything is exactly as you described, including the cleanliness. We skied a half day today and are completely exhausted ( in a good way). Snow was incredible.'

Guests # 2

The home was absolutely beautiful! It was very comfortable and in an excellent location. We were able to mill around town and go hiking and snowshoeing. Our dog loved all the open space and nature! Thank you for allowing us to stay there. I know it must be tough letting people stay in your home, but we took care of it as if it were our's. Thanks again.

Guest #3

'The Carriage House is fabulous! We loved it! You have fitted it out beautifully, which we really appreciated. It was wonderful to come back to somewhere homely after a hard day of skiing, and the kids loved playing in the snow around the house...

So often, booking any kind of vacation feels like doing business. It is a real pleasure when it feels like there is a real person on the other side of the transaction who is genuinely interested in the vacationer enjoying themselves...

Congratulations on what you have done with the house. It's clear that you have tried hard to incorporate the atmosphere of Crested Butte - historical, laid back and a responsible eye to a sustainable future, You have accomplished it very well.'

Guest #4

'Dear Paula,

As usual, Crested Butte did not disappoint! We had a great week hiking, biking, enjoying the scenery, etc. We love your house! Several of the features of the house make it very special. And I would love to know the stories behind many of the decorative items!

Thank you very much for sharing your house with us.'

                                                                Great house, great location!

The location was perfect and the town bus stop was right there. Loved the cozy house (especially the radiant heated floor and the steam shower in the master was the best after a long day skiing. Would definitely stay here next visit!

                                                                Welcome back anytime! You all were great guests. It makes us happy when families enjoy The Carriage House and CB, a little slice of heaven!

                                                                Charming and great location

                                                                Great location a few short blocks from downtown Crested Butte. Carriage House has great views, is very quiet and dog-friendly which was a plus for us. Cozy, artistically decorated with artifacts from around the world.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thank for staying with us! We are thrilled you enjoyed it. Thank you for being superb guests!

                                                                Cozy house, great location, in town but still quiet, great views, relaxing

                                                                Jared H.

                                                                My wife and I stayed here recently for a nice long weekend getaway without kids. I’ve been to CB over 50 times and I’ve stayed all over and I really enjoyed this place. It was perfect for us. Walked to town everyday, felt like we were in the middle of everything but still felt like we had our own place and could relax. Private drive shared with 3 other houses so hardly any traffic on the street. Front porch was great with amazing views. The house is as advertised and was very comfortable, well-decorated and had everything you needed to cook etc, although we used just a couple pans for breakfast. The local house manager was responsive when we had a few minor questions. I would recommend this to my friends. I would say if you are looking for a SPACIOUS place with multiple living areas and want to have a lot of people over, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a nice, comfortable place that has more than everything you need and plan on spending most of your time outdoors in Colorado (as you should!) this place is great.

                                                                We enjoyed our time once again.

                                                                Everything went smoothly, bbq included! Seems you may have a roof leak in the living room just so you know. It was nice as always to be close to town as well as our excursions each day in the beautiful mountains of Crested Butte. Fall colors are starting and it was our hope to catch some of that! Warm days and cool fall nights, can't ask for more.

                                                                Thank you!

                                                                Beautiful Home Fantastic Location Great Views

                                                                Jeff B.

                                                                My wife and I enjoyed this beautiful home for a week during Crested Butte's spring ski season. The home is comfortable, cozy and decorated with great taste and attention to detail. Much nicer than the average VRBO property. The home is located a block from the free shuttle to skiing and is an easy couple of blocks to Elk Avenue, which is where all the restaurants, shops, etc. are. There are great mountain views views from two sides of the house. The owners do a great job making this an easy, hassle-free experience. Definitely recommend.
