About the Property

5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 10-12 comfortably

Luxury ski chalet in Crested Butte, Colorado. This historic home, originally built in 1900, was completely remodeled in 2008 and features state-of-the-art amenities in 4,000 sq ft. - one of the largest homes in Crested Butte. Set deep in the central Rockies, the town of Crested Butte (8,885 feet/ 2700 meters) is a National Historic District and is located 3 miles from Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR), with world-class skiing (alpine & cross-country), snowboarding, ice skating, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, and fly fishing at your doorstep. Skiers are served by a free shuttle that takes visitors from downtown Crested Butte to the ski mountain every 15 minutes from 7 AM until midnight. This vacation home is located one block from the town center's (shops, restaurants, bars, grocery stores), a mere two blocks from the nearest ski shuttle stop, and is surrounded by stunning Rocky Mountain views in all directions. This dream chalet in southwestern Colorado sets the standard for an unforgettable family vacation memory.

Downtown living: Enjoy the convenience of a location exactly one block from the center of town. There’s no need to rent a car, as the town of Crested Butte is connected to the ski area (3 miles away) by a free shuttle every 15 minutes. The house is located 2 blocks from nearest shuttle stop. Nearly all of Crested Butte’s numerous restaurants and bars are within 2 blocks from the house, and some of the best are just a block away. The nearest small grocery store is 2 blocks away, and the nearest large grocery store is 5 blocks away as well as on the free schedule route. The Crested Butte Nordic ski center (with sledding hill & ice-skating rink attached) is 4 blocks from the house.

Getting there: For arrival by air, the Gunnison-Crested Butte airport (GUC – located 28 miles away) is served by United Airlines, American Airlines, and Alaska Airlines. Alpine Express (tel: 970-641-5074) operates a tax service to transport visitors from the airport to any address in Crested Butte. Hertz, Avis, and Budget all operate offices in the Gunnison-Crested Butte airport.

Other options for arrival by air include: Montrose, Colorado (MTJ – located 1 hour, 30 minutes away by car), Colorado Springs (COS – located 4 hours/ 197 miles away), and Denver International Airport (DEN – located 4 hours, 40 minutes/ 252 miles away).

Ski storage: As an added benefit to guests, the owner provides a large storage locker (for skis, snowboards, boots, poles, goggles, helmets, etc.) slope-slide free of charge. This locker is located at the base of the ski area inside the Treasury Center in Mt. Crested Butte Village and right next to the main lifts. This convenience allows guests to store all their ski & snowboard gear next to the slopes, a major time- and energy-saving advantage for everyone.
