                                                      Kevin H.Brentwood, TN

                                                      This is a beautiful house in a beautiful setting with great amenities. Craig's property management was awesome and he was a pleasure to deal with. We definitely hope to make it back to Crested Butte in the future!

                                                      Great property

                                                      Darren M.

                                                      Great house with plenty of room for our group of 10. The house was in great shape with a well-equipped kitchen and plenty of towels/sheets, etc. for a big group. Craig, the property manager, was very helpful both before and during our stay. The house is in a great location near a hiking trail and within close proximity to the ski mountain and the town. The view of Crested Butte from the front deck is amazing. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the house to others.

                                                      Fabulous home

                                                      We stayed in this home with two families. The house was perfect with a two separate kitchens and living areas, giving the adults and kids some separation. The view was amazing from the deck and the location to the ski area and town was great! We would love to go back!!

                                                      OKC FamilyOklahoma City

                                                      Three generations had fun! Eleven of us! Parents appreciated the ski locker near the lift. Eight minutes from Overlook to the slopes. The pool table and kitchen were busy each evening. Appy and Meme enjoyed the view overlooking the town, fireplace, and their space! We'll plan a return trip! Coal Creek Grill, Secret Stash, Ryce were welcome restaurants. Craig goes the second and third mile to make sure everything is right and is a great resource.

                                                      Sarah H.

                                                      We could not have been happier with our lodging at this beautiful house. We were in crested butte for a long weekend with 3 families (6 adults, 8 kids all under 6 years old). Each family had their own floor for sleeping and the main floor has a large beautiful kitchen and living area. We did not have great weather so spend more time indoors than we normally would have, and over and over said to each other how happy we were to be staying in such a nice place. There is a great bike trail right outside the door. There was easy hiking from the house. We would drive into downtown cb but only 10 minutes away. We have stayed in downtown cb several times which we have always loved but for a larger group, this was definitely the better option. Would highly recommend staying here!


                                                      The Outlook, Mount Crested Butte, CO, USA

                                                      We are located at the world class ski area of Crested Butte Mountain Resort and bordered by the Gunnison National Forest. Must-do winter activities include skiing, snowmobiling, snow cat skiing, ice skating, hockey, sledding and 26 kilometers of groomed cross country skiing, all surrounding the gourmet restaurants, fun funky bars and quaint shops of the fun ski town of Crested Butte. There is no end to the activities of the summer, including gold medal fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback, 4-wheeling, dirt biking, fun and festive activities for all and more and more and more. If you come in the winter you can count on making plans to return. If you come in the summer, you will be making plans to move here. 85% of the county is public lands. Being in Crested Butte is like being in one gigantic park.
