Property description

PLEASE READ FULL DESCRIPTION & TERMS BEFORE YOU SUBMIT A REQUEST. We will load our rates and start taking reservations for Ski Season 2016-2017 on September 1, 2016. Feel free to send inquiry and we will put you in the announcement email. Thanks, CC

If you're looking for 'The Last Great Colorado Ski Cabin in Crested Butte', then look no further. This updated 1 bedroom, 1 bath, 1st floor private apartment is part of a larger house where owner lives above, just steps away from Town Park, the Free Ski Shuttle, Clark's Market, and Majestic Theater.

This special gem provides the privacy and character of an individually owned home, yet offers the perfect combination of comfort and convenience with a special flair from the owners' years of international travel. Dogs are welcome with proper supervision and deposit. YOU MUST STATE BREED, AGE, WEIGHT within your inquiry to received an accurate quote. In addition, the cleaning fee will be based on the number and age of guests and in the quote you receive from us. In addition, the extra person charge does not apply to any child sleeping in a crib. Please make sure and let us know.

With a comfortable couch, a cozy leather 'lazy boy' chair, wood burning stove, and a flat panel TV, you won't want to leave the house after a day of biking, hiking, or skiing. There are plenty of books to read from the lending library, watch classic movies on the DVD, WIFI and movie channels. Cook up your favorite meal in the fully-equipped kitchen and enjoy a private dinner at the property. In the evenings, gather around the dining or coffee table for a night of fun with all the board games provided Or...if you're feeling like a night on the town, walk just a few blocks to Elk Avenue to visit all the amazing restaurants and bars. In the summer, there are 'Townies' available for guests to ride uptown, The Cabin is just close enough all the action to go out easily without a vehicle, but far enough away to be quiet at closing time. And with up to 2 OFF STREET parking spaces, you'll never need to move your car during your entire stay. Owner lives upstairs with 14 yr old Kelpie who sleeps all the time.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: RESORT LIVING is the life for me! I grew up in Horseshoe Bay, Texas - a laid back lake town just outside of Austin - full of summer fun on the water with family and friends. I discovered Crested Butte in 1994 and have spent many years here, having that same great fun with good people but instead in the snow and hiking the amazing wildflower trails. There were a few years away, attending George Washington University, where I earned a Master's Degree in Sustainable Development from the School of Business and Public Policy Management and two years attending the University of Denver School of Law. But I couldn't stay away for long and returned to become an investor, property manager, and homeowner.

Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte, CO, USA:
It is easy to see why...the views from the decks are what brought me back home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Easy walking access to the Town of Crested Butte, the Free Bus to Mt. C.B., yet still in a quiet neighborhood. Love that the Center for the Performing Arts is just steps away for inside events in the winter and the Town Park for free Alpenglow concerts in the summer.
