About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our house is in the heart of Crested Butte's historic district. It was built in the early 1900’s however, we lovingly restored it over the last year, reusing materials and preserving it's quirky charm. The floors have a patina developed over almost 100 years, yet we've plugged the old windy holes that gave the old miners a chill.

After a long day of skiing you can soothe your aches and pains in the claw foot tub or run upstairs and take a quick steam shower. When you return from dinner on the town you will enjoy the radiant floor heating and can switch on the old gas fireplace. The bedrooms have great views of Gothic, Mt Crested Butte, Mt Emmons and the Bench where Crested Buttes beloved Coal was mined.

About The Owner

We are a family of three with a large extended family. Kate is working on her Phd, Daniel works in Real Estate (this was his favorite project) and Margaret is working on her ABC's. We love to cook a big meal and then stuff the nephews, brothers, sisters and grandparents in bed.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Crested Butte

Crested Butte has been the family vacation landing pad since my brother started working here over 20 years ago. We grew up in Colorado and as kids ran around Breckenridge like Huckleberry Finn. Crested Butte reminds me of that care free time and kids can still ride their bikes and roam around town like kids should. If you know it you know and love skiing, mountain biking, fly fishing, hiking, Nordic skiing, wildflowers, food the 4th of July and the list goes on.

What makes this house unique

You don't need a car in Crested Butte and when you are staying at our place you really don't need a car. It is also a great place that contributes to the postcard feeling of town. You'll be really comfortable with modern amenities, but still connect with Crested Buttes old time spirit.

The property was very clean and nicely updated. The kitchen and bathrooms were very well stocked which was greatly appreciated. For our family of 5, it was the perfect house for us. The easy access to Elk was fantastic!

Rustic Gem Right in Downtown Crested Butte

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful, both inside and out. The owners clearly put a lot of time into making anyone's stay enjoyable and comfortable! The owner is quick to respond to any questions or concerns as well, which made our stay even more enjoyable. The house is right in downtown Crested Butte and truly a gem worth staying at!

Was good, but the Property Management co. had not prepared the house before our arrival.

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately there were no screens on the windows, no outside furniture, no bbq, no TV instructions, an incorrect wifi password and we were not ,made aware of the lack of any closets on the 1st floor. When the owners arrived, they got an immediate response from the Management Co and everything eventually got corrected.Also the back yard backed up to 2 outside restaurants that were somewhat noisy.

Beautiful, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly special property and was perfect for two couples and one set of kids. The home is warm and is beautifully designed and had everything we needed. Plus it was less than a black from Elk Avenue and all the great restaurants and from the pickup spot for the shuttle to the mountain. Owners were also very responsive when we had questions. Hoping to stay there in the future!
