About the Property
Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 15)
SLEEPING: We furnished our home with multiple families in mind. The master bedroom features a king bed, a large desk, and also a walk-in closet with enough room allowing -as needed- for an extra mattress or the crib we have provided.
Wireless internet is available in case work calls. From your living area, you have unparalleled views up the East River (Gothic Mountain), and down toward the town of Crested Butte (Mt. Emmons). The deck is furnished with chairs, and there are additional folding chairs and a folding table if you want to eat or have drinks on the deck.
Fabulous Skiing for beginners and experts: Getting to the Gold Link lift is about a 2000 feet walk (see map picture) and if that's too far, you can drive to the end of Walking Deer Lane where everyone can ski down to the Prospect lift.
Cross Country Trails are groomed and also about 2000 feet away.
The free shuttle to Crested Butte in the winter leaves from Mountaineer Square to the intersection of Prospect Drive and Gothic Road (approximately 1500 feet from our doorstep), so you can leave your car at home and get to Crested Butte for food and entertainment.
Mountain Biking: Prospect Drive takes you up the mountain to all of the mountain biking trails. Gothic Road takes you into the East River valley to world-class mountain biking like the renowned “401” trail.
Horseback Riding: A five minute walk down the hill takes you to stables where you can book horseback rides ranging from an hour to two days.
At the mountain center, (Mountaineer Square, a 5 minute bike ride) there are tons of activities and a kids' day camp. There's also a kids' nature camp at the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab on Gothic, a 10 minute bus ride away.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
This spacious 4 bed 4.5 bath home far exceeded my expectations. The home is located at the bottom of Prospect Lift on Mount Crested Butte, perfect for our six day ski trip.
The home was stocked with more than enough beds, extra mattresses, and bedding to accommodate my guests. In total we were able to host fifteen people! Each day started early, waking up to a gorgeous Colorado sunrise provided through the oversized east facing windows. We cooked nearly every meal in the spacious upstairs kitchen and dining area. There were plenty of serving dishes, utensils, and cooking accessories to prepare various meals for all fifteen guests: chili beans, meatballs, salads, spiked apple cider, fajitas, the works! For my friends who skied, we took less than a five minute hike to the slopes. The home was close enough to the lift that we could even ski home to make a sandwich for lunch.
For my friends who did not ski, they enjoyed watching movies on the big screen TV and catching up on a little R&R. They played games and built a puzzle provided in the home. A few of them took the shuttle that’s located at the end of the drive into the town of Crested Butte and enjoyed pizza from a local restaurant, and an oxygen treatment at an oxygen bar. The shuttle service ran every hour from morning until late night, making it perfect for all of my friends to come and leave as they pleased.
This home couldn’t have been more perfect. The town of Crested Butte is a true mountain town, and was the perfect getaway. Dorothee, the property owner was more than accommodating. She quickly responded to any questions we had before, during, and after the trip.
I highly recommend this spacious mountain home in Crested Butte, CO, the various activities are endless!

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking and downhill skiing and wanted to be in the mountains, ready to do the activities without a long drive to get there. Photography is also our hobby, and so it had to be a place with beautiful views and sights. On our website you can see some of the wildflower pictures we took in July 2011 and some of the winter pictures.
Why the Owner Chose Mount Crested Butte, CO, USA:
Mt Crested Butte is a beautiful valley (we think it’s more attractive than Aspen or Snowmass) and we wanted to be in a quiet place on the mountain but with many amenities that make getting home at night a pleasure. The skiing and snowboarding is world class (the second X-Games were held in Mt Crested Butte), as is the mountain-biking (invented here). Mt. Crested Butte is also the official wildflower capital of Colorado. For skiing we wanted to be close to the slopes, so you can just walk 5 minutes to the Gold Link lift. For the summer we wanted it to be a little quieter so it’s nice that the lift does not run then. There are so many things you could do every day that even when the weather’s not great, you can find something to do. We also wanted something that would accommodate our 3 extended families and kids, so we created a space for the cousins to all hang out together and play (Wii and games) and watch TV/DVDs (the bunk bed room). Our dining room table expands to fit 15 people and we like to cook, so the kitchen was important. One of our favorite places in the summer is the deck that we enjoy in the morning with a blanket and a cup of coffee, and the evening with a glass of wine as we watch the sun go down over the East River valley.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We added a Digital Piano in the queen bedroom which makes it an ideal place for people who like to play for fun but don’t get a chance to do so in their “regular” lives as much as they would like. Wildhorse is the closest housing to the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab in Gothic, so if you are visiting someone there for the summer, it’s as close as you can get (3 miles up the road). The free shuttle to Crested Butte leaves from Mountaineer Square to the intersection of Prospect Drive and Gothic Road (approximately 1500 feet from our doorstep) in the winter.
