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 breathtaking...in 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!

Why Susan Eskew chose Gunnison County

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.

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