About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Are you looking for a spacious, large and spectacularly scenic mountain home next to the unspoiled wilderness areas of the Colorado Rockies, conveniently located next to the world class, uncrowded skiing of Crested Butte Mountain Resort and overlooking the quaint shopping and fantastic restaurants of the nearby historic mining town of Crested Butte? You have found your home at 'The Overlook'. For a small additional cost, we have available a private shuttle service for transportation to and from the lifts or to dinner in the towns. This 6 bedroom mountain home is perfectly designed for WINTER SKI VACATIONS, FAMILY SUMMER VACATION, WEDDINGS, CORPORATE RETREATS. For the winter ski season, we are located just 1/2 mile from the safe and convenient shuttle service and 3/4 mile from the nearest skier drop-off. For summer activities, we border the Gunnison National Forest and the popular 'Upper Loop' hiking/biking trail is at our doorstep and we have access to most all of the outdoor activities in this vacation playground. Hike, bike, fish, camp, ride ATV's, ride a horse, jeep, zip line tours and all other avenues of fun are nearby.

Each Master bedroom on the upper floor has it's own private patio.
