About Marc J. Solari

Hello, My name is Marc J. Solari and I have lived in Crested Butte for 25 years. I just love this place. Everything I like to do in the mountains, on the rivers and in the lakes is in close proximity and easily accessible. Living in a small resort town, I have had an opportunity to work in several different fields. I have been a construction worker, landscaper, bartender, waiter, teacher, guide and I even worked as a distributor for wine, beer and spirits. Recently I was very fortunate to find my home located in Glacier Lily Estates. Now I am guiding and trying my hand at vacation rentals. So far it has worked out exceptionally well. Everyone that has stayed at my home has had nothing but wonderful comments and moments of disbelief as to how incredible their stay has been. I am considering these results an immediate success, but I am not stopping there. I am constantly upgrading my home, its amenities and my abilities as a caretaker to offer the most comfortable vacation rental experience in Crested Butte.

Marc J. Solari purchased this House in 2008

Why Marc J. Solari chose Crested Butte

Crested Butte offers so much for the outdoor enthusiast. There is an incredible amount of National Forest and Wilderness within close proximity to Crested Butte. In fact, trailheads to many mountain bike and hiking trails are right out the front door of my home. In the winter, the ski area is within view and only 3 short minutes drive from my home. You can just peek out the windows, see which lifts are running, what the skier traffic is like and hit the slopes. If you are not in the mood for lift serviced skiing, there are snowmobile trailheads nearby and a groomed cross country trail less than 300 meters away. In the summer, several different mountain biking options are right out the door and the garage is a great place to throw a quick tune on your bike. If you are a hiker, you can walk across the street and access the recreation path that links the two towns with several hiking trails. If a scenic drive is what you are craving, take a left out of Glacier Lily Estates and drive the Gothic loop over Paradise Divide and back to the house. This is a beautiful drive and a great way to spend a day. Tennis anyone? There is a private tennis court 50 meters from the home. There is good fishing within a mile of the house and larger rivers are less than 3 miles away. If the group is interested in rafting or kayaking, drive to Almont and enjoy a day floating the Taylor or Gunnison River. The local outfitters and guides are professional and well trained. Whether you are into whitewater, flat water or float fishing, the guides of the Gunnison Country will hook you up!

What makes this House unique

One of the most special events of the day begins when you wake up and look out one of the enormous picture windows and see the colors of the sunrise lighting the magnificent mountain peaks. The timer on the automatic coffee pot has started and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee fills the home calling you to the kitchen. As you curl up in a leather recliner with a fresh cup, reading one of the local papers, a fox strolls across the open field and you know that no matter what activities you choose for your day you won't have to fight traffic or go far to enjoy them!

                                                                  My family of four had a wonderful stay. The home is very comfortable, is equipped with anything you might need, and has beautiful views of the mountains from every window. The owner is accommodating and responsive to every need. The location is excellent, too — two minutes from skiing and about five from town. We have stayed in many VRBOs over the years and this one makes the top of our list. Thank you, Marc!

                                                                  A very large place with an awesome view

                                                                  Mark P.

                                                                  A very large place with all the accommodations you could ask for. The owner was very cordial at introducing you to the the place and explaining all the amenities. A great location between town and the ski lifts, very easy access to the property.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you for the spectacular review! I’m happy that you and the boys enjoyed visiting Crested Butte and staying in my home. Hopefully you’ll be back soon to do some more fishing.

                                                                  Large well appointed, stunning views but needs a couple vital updates to improve the home for guests

                                                                  Kathy T.Boulder, CO

                                                                  We just checked out of the Lily and all of us felt this was overall a really lovely place in a terrific location with amazing views. It is a large, rambling space that easily accommodated our 4 couples for a ski weekend. The kitchen was well appointed and the furniture, while a bit dated, was comfortable and inviting. The best space was the large living room and we enjoyed it every night. The Lily had some quirks and omissions that, if corrected, would make this a truly 5 star place. For example, it only had 1 full bath and that was in the private en suite upstairs. The other three bedrooms (in our case 6 people) had to share a single bathroom with only a shower between us and a powder room. For such a large place, it would be good to have at least 1 more bath with a shower/tub in place of the powder room. The upstairs master has absolutely stunning views across the valley to the mountains out of a huge picture window, but, there are no window coverings at all so it got very hot in the middle of the day and one could not darken the room without blinds or curtains. The 4th bedroom is a actually a family room between the garage and kitchen. The door between this room and the kitchen is glass and so those sleeping there has no privacy at all.

                                                                  The owner was very prompt getting back to us when we had questions and was gracious and easy to work with.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Hello Kathy,

                                                                  Thank you for all of your positive comments about my home. I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I’m constantly updating my home and I’m always interested to hear what will improve my home and enhance the guest experience. My home is advertised as a 2.5 bath and the website clearly describes the layout of the home and their location. There are also photos of the master bath and downstairs shared bathroom. The family room / 4th bedroom is listed as such and makes for a great kid’s room or another bedroom for larger groups. Your input about some blinds to offer some additional privacy and darken the master is very helpful and I will have some installed by summer. I’m glad you enjoyed participating in the Alley Loop Cross Country Ski Race and hope that you’ll make it an annual occurrence. Thanks and Take Care.

                                                                  Marc J. Solari

                                                                  Will B.colorado springs

                                                                  This home is a 3 minute drive to the ski area and a 5 minute drive to the town of Crested Butte. There are windows everywhere, and so there are great light and views. The tenant who lives above the garage was there all week but we never saw her or heard her. The house is very big and has a great layout. The owner was there when we arrived and when we left, and he was very attentive. We would definitely go back here on our next trip.

                                                                  Lots of Windows, great setup

                                                                  Robert S.

                                                                  Loved the property. Would have been nice to know there was a tenant above the garage.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Hello Richard,

                                                                  I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed the property. Situated on over 1.5 acres with the closest neighbor over a half an acre away, the home offers plenty of open space and privacy. Yes, I have a full-time resident living in the caretaker apartment above the garage. The caretaker apartment is fully removed from the home, has its own access and the tenant is very professional and respectful of our vacation renters. There is currently a housing shortage in Crested Butte and the ability to help out one of our long-term locals with an affordable housing option is extremely important for our community. During your departure, we discussed the caretaker and the fact that you hoped you didn’t bother her. I asked if she bothered you and you replied “no sir.”

                                                                  It’s unfortunate that you gave me a 4 star review. It’s my first non-five star review in nine years of short-term renting. I have had a caretaker in the studio for the entire time. Please keep in mind when you return to Crested Butte for your next visit that our community relies on our long-term locals to provide the services that vacationing visitors require. If we don’t provide housing for our locals, visitors will not have the incredible Crested Butte experience that we currently offer. Without our locals, we become just another Colorado Ski Town like Aspen, Telluride and Vail. There’s a reason why Crested Butte stands apart from these other resorts. Above all, it’s the fact that we take care of our locals. After all, it’s our community of both visitors and locals that makes Crested Butte the awesome place it is.

                                                                  Thank you and Take Care.

                                                                  Lindsey L.

                                                                  From the moment we arrived we were stunned with the views of this property. The pictures do not do it justice. The Lily is an unforgettable property that is immaculately maintained and equipped. My family of 7 and I stayed the weekend here and we loved every minute of it! The kitchen is stocked with every ammenity one could ask for in terms of culinary aides. The bedrooms are comfortable and well designed. Amble space for a large group to feel completely comfortable. The overall layout of the house is spacious, bright, and inviting. Located close to the town of Mt. Crested Butte but with very few direct neighbors. It's perfect for those seeking a peaceful getaway without having to feel isolated or removed from a town setting. The Lily is "the house on the hill" and as you drive to the estate you will be excited to see how its beauty rivals or surpasses the beauty of the luxury homes in its surrounding. To this day, I feel so lucky for having chosen the Lily out of all the possible locations I came across when researching a place to stay. Above all the property is very clean and well kept for with lush house plants that are not only beautiful they also create crisp clean air flow throughout the home. You can't go wrong picking this location. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as my family did!

                                                                  Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte offer incredible vacation opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers of all ages. Deemed 'Wild Flower Capital' of Colorado, our summers are bright and full of colors. Listed as one of North America's 'Top Ski Resorts' we are a world class destination ski area. There are so many activities available in this area, it is tough to list them all. The winters offer skiing, snowmobiling, skating, ice fishing and other activities all surrounded by a beautiful, mountainous setting. The summers offer mountain biking, hiking, fishing, golfing, wildflower viewing, rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding, again, set in a magnificent alpine environment. If you want to experience the true peace and tranquility of the Crested Butte area, come visit during our 'Shoulder Seasons.' April and May offer great snowmobiling and back country skiing options. These months can be really good fishing as well. In September and early October, the mountains glow with the golden fall colors of Aspens. November is extremely quiet and peaceful. The ski area opens over Thanksgiving weekend. 'The Lily' is a wonderful home to prepare a Thanksgiving feast!
