Easy living house with great outdoor space

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location: a short distance from downtown Crested Butte with great outdoor space and accessible hiking. The house easily handled our group of 7 adults with 4 bedrooms and an open floor plan. Doug, the owner, was responsive and helpful. Most importantly, the rental rate was very fair compared to other properties in the area.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Studley was great. The property is very nice & it has wonderful views of the gorgeous scenery. The close proximity to town is fantastic - you have the privacy of a ranch but less than a mile away is the lovely town of Crested Butte. The owner was great too. Five stars all the way.

Beautiful home!!!

  • 5 of 5

While looking for a destination ski spot, crested butte was where everyone decided and this home was perfect. It was only a mile outside of town and it was able to sleep everyone very comfortably and give us lots of space. The views were unmatched and th cozy fireplace made it the perfect mountain home! If I'm ever in the area again, I'll be sure to try and book again! Great for big group, as it came with 7 beds total!!!

Thanks again for everything!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our family get together of ages 58 - 89 and one mini aussie! The views are just incredible and the house was spacious with a view out every window. The sunrise and sunset were a joy to watch every day. We heard elk bugle, watched the aspens turn gold, and trails within walking distance. We could get to town in 5 minutes and shop or eat and the treks out to Kebler pass and to Gothic were beautiful and fun. Our host was so gracious and helpful. He was quick to answer our questions on the area. He was knowledgeable of the fishing, hiking etc. The large yard was well tended as was the whole house. The kitchen and dining areas were large and amply accommodated our group of 7 adults and would comfortably hold more. We hope to come back soon and would love to make this a yearly tradition. A VERY special place.
