About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Built in 2011, this ski in and ski out 5,000 sq. ft. home is located in an aspen grove on Columbine hill - right above the base area ski lifts. This house has Scandinavian feel, with impeccable design by an award winning architect.

This house has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 12-14. In non peak times, it can be rented as a 2 or 3 bedroom, with a reduction in the rates.

In the summer, the early evening concerts at the base can be heard on the house's wrap around deck. Enjoy the music and the views from home or you can just walk on down the hill to the base! The aspens around the house make for incredible summer/fall hikes. Biking trails can be accessed just steps from the house.

In the winter, ski in and out! Ski out from the culdesac to the bottom of Red Lady lift, ski in from the owners' trail at the top of Painter Boy, across Columbine hill. The easy ski out is for all levels of skiers. The ski in can be challenging for beginners.

This house has panoramic mountain views, floor to ceiling windows, fully equipped kitchen. Massive granite countertops, wet bar, large dining room table (seats 14).

There is a king bed in the huge master suite, along with two couches that can easily accommodate small children. In the second and third bedrooms, there are queen beds. One of these bedrooms also has a couch, which converts to a bed for either one adult, or two children. Both of these bedrooms open into a second living room. This living room has another couch that can easily be converted into a bed. On this same floor, there is a TV room with large sectional sofa.

The 4th bedroom/living space is perfect for kids of all ages. It has 2 sets of bunk beds. There are double beds on the bottom of the bunks, and singles for the top (the kids will have to flip for it!) . This huge room has its own mini kitchen with full fridge and toaster oven. This is really a huge space -believe it or not, but with another den area. This area also has a sectional sofa, air hockey table, and large screen TV. There is also a private bath with tub and shower.

Blair Garth, the owner, is a well-known artist - enjoy her paintings on the walls!

Come to this beautiful home, nestled amongst the aspens with incredible views, ski in and out!

Special note: 4WD vehicles are highly recommended for winter visitors.

About Blair Garth

My husband and I both grew up on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, but we have a love for the mountains as well. We discovered Crested Butte back in the 1980s and decided to build our dream mountain get-away in 2008. We have two daughters who share our passion for the beach and the mountains

Blair Garth purchased this house in 2011

Why Blair Garth chose Mount Crested Butte

We chose Crested Butte as the location of our mountain escape because of the freindliness of the town, the lack of crowds and the multitude of activities available in and near this quaint, historic mining town.

What makes this house unique

We never tire of the fabulous panoramic views available from almost every room of the house. The in-floor heat keeps the home at a perfect temperature year round and the spaciousness allows us to have friends and family visit without feeling cramped.

Great place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time as a boys get away. The house was great. Clean and fully stocked of essentials. Great outdoor space and hang out space as well. We struggled with the ski in/out portion as it was not clear on best routes to take, but on 3rd day we nailed it lol. Maybe the owner could provide best routes to take.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Skiing in and out of the house can be tricky, especially when the snow is light. I include a ski-in/out map with check-in email and there is also a copy in the house notebook provided at the house.

Property was as wonderful as I had hoped!

  • 5 of 5

We had three couples and four kids ranging in age from 5 to 16. The house was perfect, enough space for everyone. It was nice having a table large enough for us all. The kitchen had everything we needed. The kids claimed the upper bunkbeds were squeaky so it made it hard to sleep. I think the altitude was keeping them awake. Ski in, ski out was not feasible due to the lack of snow. My only suggestion would be to update the arrival instructions. We had a blown fuse on our arrival and when we called to find out where the fuse box was located we were informed that the management company that we had numbers for were no longer managing that property. They were great and told us where the fuse box was. Luckily we did not have any other questions and no other issues arose during our stay. I would definitely stay there again!

Beautiful house, great views, nice owner

  • 4 of 5

The house is gorgeous and fits multiple families very nicely being 4 stories. The owner is very friendly and does have some very cool artwork. The views during the day and at night are probably some of the best in Mt. Crested Butte. The table was able to sit our entire group for some great dinners (it sits about 12 people). I could go on and on about all of the good stuff, but I only have two items that could be improved/clarified. The ski in was very tough on Columbine Hill. I think it was much tougher because it was late in the season and that slope was chunks of ice. Only on the last day did they extend the groomed portion down closer to the house. As a result, we couldn't use the house like we wanted to be a true ski in/ski out. Also, we would have loved to had a hot tub after a day on the slopes looking out at the beautiful view. Everything else was absolutely wonderful.

Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time celebrating Christmas in beautiful crested butte. The kitchen was adequately stocked with all that was needed to prepare a holiday feast for the family. There was plenty of room and the different levels allowed the kids to have their space and adults as well!

Crested Butte Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at this home and the house is furnished very nicely, very convenient to the MTN, literally ski in & out with easy access to & from the lifts. The trail in & out is quite fun!

All the amenities you would expect are available & the house is extremely warm & comfortable. We would wake up in the a.m. have breakfast, check email, throw on our gear, ski for a couple hours and we could easily go back to the home for lunch or to regroup, then go back out for more skiing.

I would highly recommend this place for families as it provides a great general meeting area, Kitchen, Dining room, Living Room, but allows for privacy. Great Layout & the Views are splendid.
