Property type cabin

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

Located in Meridian Lake subdivision, on the edge of miles of wilderness. Only three miles to the historic town of Crested Butte and the Mt.Crested Butte ski area.

Rustic for sure, but in a spectacular setting...the views from this property are the midst of single track riding, (the Upper Loop, Long Lake,403,the Lower Loop, 401) and amazing 4-wheel roads (Paradise Divide, Schofield Park, the Slate River Road.) Ride all trails from the cabin, and less than one mile from the Snodgrass Trailhead.

Basically furnished, nice linens. Fireplace, grill. Grandpa built the Cabin so everyone could come and enjoy hiking, biking, and skiing. A King and two queens on the main floor...the loft sleeps six!

Oklahoma Family stay at Grandpa's Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Nine members of our family just returned from a 5 day stay at Grandpa's cabin. What a treat for all of us. View was incredible and plenty of amenities for a group to stay comfortably with 3 bathrooms, dishwasher and washer and dryer. Plenty of outdoor adventures within short distance and fishing at nearby Lake Erwin and river sites. we will definitely come again next year. Susan was great to work with.

We had a great time at the cabin! The big fireplace and the sauna helped us warm up after nordic skiing and backcountry touring. It was nice to be so close to trails! Beautiful view to boot.

Owner's Response: Rustic, and all the essentials is how Grandpa liked to roll! Getting away from work and the big city drew him here, and once he got here he was either hiking, fishing, or skiing! In between he would sit and drink coffee and look at the gorgeous view of the mountain, or have a glass of wine in front of a cozy fire. That about sums up Grandpa's Cabin!

Why Susan Eskew chose Crested Butte

Crested Butte's cool clean air inspires me to be more active, to hike and bike. I take time to enjoy the quiet, the stars, my friends and family.

What makes this cabin unique

Dark skies, spotting abundant wildlife, astonishing views, access to trails and backcountry.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for the perfect house! We had a wonderful weekend racing in the Alley Loop 21K skate and a conference 5K classic race. The cabin was the perfect place for us to hang out and study after long days skiing. Thanks!
