The Hawk's Nest, unit B, is a 2007-built, spacious and elegant townhome across the street from the West Wall quad chair lift. It has all the amenities you'd expect in a luxurious mountain home, including a unique western/mountain decor. As it sleeps 8, it is perfect for large families or groups of friends - winter and summer.
The upper level has a large open floor plan with a vaulted, rustic-beamed ceiling. The views are spectacular! This is a wonderful place for gatherings around the gas log fireplace or watching the sun go down after dining on the west deck. The living room also features a 46' flat panel HD TV with virtual surround sound, DVD and iPod dock. The gourmet kitchen makes cooking a pleasure. The 2 elevated bars seat 6, while the dining area seats 8. The east deck faces Crested Butte Mountain, and has a gas grill for your use. The larger west deck easily seats 8 and has unobstructed views across the entire valley.
The main entry opens on to Hunter Hill Dr. just across from the West Wall lift. On this middle level are the 3 bedrooms, each with its own 32' flat panel HD TV and travertine-tiled bathroom with shower. The master has a king bed, Jacuzzi tub, his and her sinks, and walk-in closet. The queen room has a desk with ethernet connection to complement Wi-Fi throughout the townhouse. The 'Bunkhouse' has 2 extra-long, college-grade bunk beds to accommodate kids of all ages, as well as DVD and iPod dock.
The garage level opens on to Castle Rd. The utility room has a washer, dryer, iron and ironing board. The 2-car heated garage is oversized and easily accommodates 2 SUVs with car-top carriers, bicycles, and other toys. But you really don't need your own vehicle, as the free shuttle bus stops every 15 minutes on both Castle Rd. and Hunter Hill Dr. in winter, and half a block away every 20 minutes in summer, to take you up to the Mt. Crested Butte base area or downtown to town - historic Crested Butte with wonderful shopping and affordable restaurants.
And don't forget Crested Butte's beautiful summers. At 8500' the temperatures are perfect. Known as the wildflower capital of Colorado, the hiking and mountain biking are spectacular. The fishing is 5-star. And then there are the Wildflower, Food and Wine, Mushroom, and Art festivals. September Splendor follows the incredible turning of the aspen trees.
