This unique property was originally a barn for mules! No kidding! It was deconstructed and moved to a town lot for people to inhabit and enjoy. Keeping all the charm of a barn with modern day conveniences, this one of a kind property will be talked about for years to come! Three bedrooms on the lower level, one with a king bed, one queen and built in bunk bed room share a newly remodeled full bath (shower only). The second floor boasts a large kitchen with washer/dryer, dining and living area, and a second newly remodeled full bath (shower/tub). The upstairs loft has two twin beds and an additional single bed. For the little ones there is another small loft that can sleep two. The Barn is in walking distance to the bus stop (free bus every 15 minutes all day every day) which takes you to the base of Mt. Crested Butte ski area. It is also located in walking distance to the quaint downtown area that has unique shopping and dining opportunities. Immediately down the street is a large park with playground equipment, a soccer field and picnic pavillion with restrooms. The rec path for bikers, hikers or walkers is a very short walk away. In summer you can hike and bike from the Barn and in winter you can cross country ski directly from the house. There is a great side yard with deck for outside dining, playing or entertaining. Included in rental are two cruiser bikes for summer or winter.
Barn, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps up to 9)

Best ski vacation house ever rented - hated leaving.
The mule barn was an absolute pleasure - the atmosphere made the trip so enjoyable for my three college age sons and myself. We also brought three extra friends. All 7 of us were very comfortable and loved so many things about the mule barn. The location to town, the ski shuttle, etc. was PERFECT. The bathrooms, bedrooms, bedding, cookware, and the way the home was equipped was a perfect 10. We have traveled a lot and stayed a lot of places and this ranks as one of our all time favorite trips. Can't wait to go back. In addition the owner was a pleasure to work with in booking it and any questions I had. Thank you so much for a great vacation. Tricia and sons
Thanks Tricia! Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the photos!! Looked like a fun group!
Very cool property!
Great property! Lots of fun for the kids.
Super quiet downstairs sleeping rooms, mid level living area and 2 more levels of lofts!!! The construction of the barn inside is so incredible! Spiral staircases, natural wood work artfully designed, large open kitchen....and laundry!!! Wow this place has it all. My kids loved playing like it was their own private clubhouse.
And you are 1/2 a block from a park and only 1 and 1/2 blocks from downtown CB. This is a magical place to spend time and my only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!
We had our very best nights of sleep here at the mule barn. (We are on a tour for 6 weeks all over Colorado/KS/MO)
Excellent place and location!
My family of 5 loved the mule barn. The close proximity to everything in town was great!
Fantastic and Unique Place!!!!!
Our recent ski trip with our 3 children (18, 17 and 14) was a huge success, in part because of the Mule Barn. In addition to being one of the most iconic homes in CB, it is super unique as well!!! We loved the place, and can think of no other place to stay when we visit CB!!!! The home itself is very comfortable and welcoming, and the unique interior design makes the place stand out from all the rest. Further, it is within walking distance to every major attraction in town (shuttle to the mountain, downtown CB, local market), but just enough out of town to enjoy some peace and quiet, if needed, after a long day on the slopes. Add to everything how easy it was to work with Susan, and you have a winning combination across the board. Simply put, the Mule Barn rocked it!!!!
Best Location in Town
I stayed at the Mule Barn mid-summer with my two sisters and our kids. The location was convenient to every park in town, and just one block from free shuttle to the ski resort area. Thank goodness for the free bikes that came with the house! We all used them every day we were there. The house had every amenity you could ask for; we cooked dinners and stayed in most nights--exhausted from all the daytime activities. Really can't say enough good things about the Mule Barn and Crested Butte!
Enjoy beautiful Crested Butte in the summer or winter! Wonderful family area with activities galore. In the summer there is biking, hiking, rafting, fishing, rock climbing, swimming, hot air balloon rides, jeep tours, four wheeling, zip line rides, and much more. Enjoy the many festivals and events, and the performing arts in town throughout the summer. The two town parks (one block and a few minutes walk away) offer great playgrounds, mini climbing wall, soccer and softball fields, and beach volleyball. Great fun for kids and adults! Or just walk up town, enjoy a coffee or drink, and soak in the sun.
Winter offers incredible extreme skiing, beginner, moderate and advanced skiing in the ski area, ski school, back country skiing, snow shoeing, kilometers of groomed cross country skiing, ice skating, sledding, tubing and more. Enjoy apres ski in town or on the mountain. Great food and drinks, excellent conversation and unique shopping abound. There is something for everyone, no matter what the age!
