Welcome to THE CARRIAGE HOUSE!
Come and experience ... PURE LUXURY, ECO-FRIENDLY BUILDING, SUPERB IN-TOWN LOCATION, GREAT CRAFTSMANSHIP & the BEST VIEWS IN THE BUTTE!!! 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.
'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.'
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.'
