About Elizabeth Fossum

We are a family of 4, with a son in grade school and a daughter in college. We rent out to families or groups that are respectful of our home and love the Colorado lifestyle as much as we do. We are animal lovers but keep our animals at home so this can be a comfortable place for those with allergies.

Elizabeth Fossum purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Elizabeth Fossum chose Mount Crested Butte

We've been CB fans ever since ski-bumming here in the 90s and feel fortunate to call it our home away from home today - a vibrant, funky, one-of-a-kind town surrounded by a mountain playground offering endless opportunities for fun, recreation, and relaxation!

What makes this townhome unique

We have a private and quiet location on the end of a 5-unit building. Great neighbors who live there year-round. Wonderful fast sledding hill in the backyard! Sunny, clean, and fully stocked with everything from spices to condiments to shampoo and conditioner and lotion - save yourself the hassle and cost of having to buy or bring the basics! We have a coveted enclosed detached garage with a second outdoor parking spot in front of it. Many many places for rent in CB don't have enclosed parking! We are right on the bus loop, so you can get to the lifts within minutes either by walking or taking the bus. In fact, if you fly in to Gunnison, you can take the bus right to the house, to the town, and to the ski resort- no need for a rental car!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can up with my husband for a little R&R. It was still muddy on some of our hikes but the flowers were already starting to appear and we had a great time in town before the heavy tourist season started. Mostly what we wanted was peace and quiet and we got it. The house was really comfortable and spacious and had a lot of extras beyond what you'd find at a hotel but for the same price.

great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

very clean and comfortable condo.

fully stocked.

The only things I would change are to add ceiling fans or have plug in fans available as it did get hot during the day and I would also change the bannister/railing on the 2nd floor. Toddlers and small children can fall right through. Other than that it was a great place and Elizabeth, the owner, was extremely nice. John the HOA guy was also very pleasant.

Fantastic condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four and another family of three stayed here for a ski weekend. With young kids, the 2 bedrooms are doable and there’s plenty of bedding to have kids sleep on the floor of the bedrooms if needed. Really liked how well the condo is stocked. So often rentals don’t have things like sandwich baggies and we are forever forgetting to bring them. This place has plenty of baggies/foil/plastic wrap along with salad dressing and condiment packages, coffee, tea and spices. Plus the kitchen knives and silverware are good quality!

A couple of minor drawbacks: There are a lot of steps down to the unit and the garage is too small for a 4Runner with ski rack. Be aware of that if you are trying to park two trucks, there isn’t room, at least during the winter with snowdrifts along the street. You need at least one car to fit in the garage.

We would definitely stay here again.

Great stay in Crested Butte

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exactly as advertised and reviewed - clean, well-stocked, nicely furnished and comfortable. Everything worked fine. Nice, quiet location with a good view of the July 4th fireworks at the base village. The stairs from the garage down to the unit are a challenge but a good way to get warmed up for a hike. The owner is very responsive and helpful. Would definitely stay in this unit again.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this Condo. Nice location with bus pickup right outside the unit, or about a 10 minute walk to the slopes. This unit was comfortable for our party of 6. I would stay here again.

Well maintained and great location

  • 5 of 5

One of the most nicely maintained condos Ive stayed at. Especially liked the great TV in the family room and individual room temp controls. Kids loved sledding on the hill in the back after a day of spring skiing (and I liked watching them with the mountain in the background). Bus was fantastic and we never used our car once (wish we would have brought firewood from the beginning). We were 2 adults/2 kids and very comfortable.

This was the perfect spot for our family of 4 including 2 small children

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the cleanliness and accommodations at the spice of life. The play pens and toddler bed mattress made for very easy travels. The steep hill on the unit was a hit for our 2 year old when we pulled out the sleds from the garage. We had such a great time and will definitely be returning next year!!
