About The Owner

I'm a physician from the Grand Junction area, an avid skier, kayaker, and bicyclist. I enjoy adventure travel, and all outdoor activities. I particularly enjoy cooking and dining well.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 1997

Why The Owner chose Crested Butte

Set among spectacular peaks in an amazing landscape, Crested Butte offers outstanding recreation, cultural and wildlife activities at every level, from mountain biking to back country skiing, to music festivals, to wildflower viewing, to fine dining, hunting and fishing!

What makes this townhome unique

Walk to coffee at Camp 4, Izzy's or Blue Moon Books, circle back over the Totem Pole Park bridge to walk the dog down the block to the Woods Walk or Lower Loop trails. Taking the ski shuttle is an easy 2 block walk to Elk and Second Street. Just two blocks to bars and restaurants on Elk, walk to and from dinner at the Timberline, or dancing at the Eldo!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for nine nights to have a three-generation family vacation. There were seven of us, plus two corgis. We were only two blocks north of Elk Avenue and near the western end where most of the restaurants and shops are located. The small park on Coal Creek was only one block away, and it was a favorite cooling off spot for the granddaughters. The house had plenty of space and seating for the seven of us on the main floor, and the sleeping quarters were good. Everything was clean and in good working order. This was our fourth visit to Crested Butte, and this was the best place we've stayed. We'd love to do it again.

Amazing location, solid condo

  • 4 of 5

The location can't be beat. 2 blocks from Elk St and the free bus to the mountain. The condo has pretty much all you need. It is definitely on the old side, but very clean and the beds are pretty comfortable. If you want new amenities this isn't the place for you. But if you want a good price, clean place with a nice layout for a group of 6 this is a good option for you. Overall no complaints.

Great place for a mountain holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a family Christmas with our two adult daughters and their partners. It was just perfect for the 6 of us (though one couple would have preferred a bigger bed, they got the bunk beds). The bottom bed of the bunks is a double, so I figured it was fine for the "young ones". The property was very clean and tidy, instructions were pretty clear (recycling rules a bit confusing for us, so I hope we got it right!). Pretty much everything you could want - I made a traditional Christmas dinner, and the kitchen had all the tools I needed. Quick walk to get the bus to the slopes, or to walk to the nordic centre. Also a very quick walk to restaurants and shops. The only suggestion I would have is that something be written down re procedures for when there's a big snow. This happened while we were there, and at first we weren't sure what we would be expected to do. As it turned out the driveway was cleared, so I assume there is a service already arranged for this. It all worked out, but perhaps other guests would like to know this in advance?

Bathrooms were well stocked. We really appreciated the small bars of locally made soaps. A box of kleenex was also a nice touch, especially in the winter time.

I would stay at this property again in a heartbeat. It was absolutely perfect for us.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this duplex. The location is 2 blocks from Elk St. where most of action takes place. It is a enjoyable walk especially if you walk through totem pole park on the way. You can park the car and walk to any place in Crested Butte. The layout of this 2 story is great. It is very open downstairs with comfortable couches. We found the house clean upon arrival, and was well stocked with all normal kitchen and bath items. The only negatives were the lack of local television channels, but they do have netflix which was nice. The rental agent, Susan said the owner was not a big fan of television. This actually turned out to be a positive because it forced us to play hours of games which was great family time! The other negative would be the beds. The two queen beds were not great, but we managed . The 3rd bedroom with full and twin bunks were not very comfortable. They may be alright for young kids, but our grown kids certainly did not like the springy beds. I know that bedding is very subjective, and these are just our opinions. We certainly enjoyed staying at this home but there was a strange beginning and ending. The owners agent, Susan, sent me a text 6 hours before our scheduled 4:00 PM check-in to ask if we could stay at another "little house" the first night. I received this text as we are boarding a plane. I was able to send a quick text replying NO, but this was very unsettling just before a two hour flight. It did work out and we were able to check in as scheduled, but a vacation should be relaxing not worrying if you have a place to stay. Then at check out Susan shows up 30 minutes before scheduled checkout to clean. She knew our car was in the driveway and still knocks on the door to start cleaning. I told her we were almost finished, and would be gone before 10AM checkout and she could return after we left. We have leased through VRBO and other agents many times, and just never experienced anything quite like this. This is a good place to stay. I felt that I should share our experience with other VRBO customers. I know that I would appreciate the information before choosing a home to lease.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful long weekend in Crested Butte with our son, daughter-in-law and grandson and found this home to be perfect for our stay. We greatly enjoyed the location being so close to the main street as well as trails for hiking and biking. The kitchen is well equipped so we had everything we needed to prepare breakfasts and one night we BBQ'd on the grill.

Felt right at home here

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property and the friendly management make this a five star property. If you are looking for fancy, this is not your house, but if you're looking for comfortable, convenient, clean and efficient, it is awesome. We never got the TV to work but I was happy about that. We loved being in this quiet neighborhood right off Elk. Crested Butte is a jewel not to be missed.
