Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: Eric and Audrey are outdoor adventure enthusiasts. Eric bought this cabin a few years after moving to Crested Butte in the late 70's. He has been active in Search and Rescue, Ski Patrol and knows the backcountry like the palm of his hand. Audrey came here to ski and 13 years later calls CB the adventure she was always looking for. We have an Irish Setter (Fiona) and a Golden Retriever (Estee). They accompany A & E on all their adventures. We have a trailer in back of the property where we sometimes stay.

Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte, CO, USA:
We ask you to contribute 1% for the preservation of open space in our beloved valley. 1% for Open Space is a tax deductible contribution. Here's a link to learn more about this nonprofit organization. Http://

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is a doggy door big enough for our Irish Setter and Golden Retriever. There are a bunch of funky outdoor decor items.
