'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.'

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.'
