Guestbook comments from the owner


We have not ironed out our exact dates for a Christmas ski vacation yet, but we will soon. Like I stated before, we were so pleased with the accommodations and location, that I just don’t think we would want to do anything different this year.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Very close to the mountain, easily walkable distance. Very roomy with the advertised 8 people. The community hot tub is also very large. Our only problem was that there was a grill advertised that was either not there or very difficult to find.

Owner's Response: Michael, thank you for your review. I apologize about the grill, as I've learned it is only available in the summertime. I will clarify that on my listing so that no one else will be confused. I hope you're able to come back again.

Convenient and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This condo comfortably slept the six people (3 couples) we had in our party. The kitchen and living area was comfortable and had the right things to cook your basic meals. The location is by far the best part - you are walking distance to the lifts. You are right by paid parking for Mt. Crested Butte but can do the walk in ski boots and carrying equipment. Great price, great location.

We had a very nice stay and Bart was very responsive. The condo is a bit older, but because of that it is VERY spacious. We are a family of four and had plenty of room to spread out. The living room is quite large and the bedrooms had plenty of room to move around in. The walk to the slopes is truly less than 10 minutes, and it was very convenient to not rely on a shuttle. The only negative comment I have is in regards to the property management company. The washing machine in the unit was broken, and instead of taking the initiative to take the linens elsewhere to be cleaned, the cleaning crew left us with dirty towels. It didn't appear the property management company was staying on top of needed issues. HOWEVER, we really had an enjoyable, comfortable stay and would recommend it and stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Leanne for the feedback. I apologize for the inconvenience the washer breakdown caused and the situation left by the property manager. I'm pleased you had a good stay though. Hopefully you will give our place another try. We will have these items corrected! Bart

Condo was perfect for our annual ski trip we take our grandkids on. It was a close walk to the lift

  • 5 of 5

We have been taking our grandkids skiing for the past 7 yrs. they love CB. We had plenty of room, the garage was awesome. The hot tub was close by and very popular.

We hope to stay here next year.

Perfectly located for a walk to Mt. Crested Butte lifts. Breath taking view

  • 5 of 5

Dec 17-22, 2016 - Spacious, clean and would definitely rent again. Less than a 10 minute walk to the lifts. Shuttle to and from Crested Butte just outside the condo building. Clean hot tub within steps of the condo as well.

Thanks for sharing your home with us!!!!

Nearest Airport
25 Miles
Car: recommended

The Ponderosa is within walking distance to the Crested Butte ski slopes. It is fun to watch the ski lifts start up in the morning and to watch the snow cats at night grooming the slopes for the next day of skiing. The location is right above the day parking lot for skiers. In the summer, our property is perfect for either mountain biking, road cycling, or hiking from the front door. It is conveniently located next to a bus stop for a free ride into the town of Crested Butte.

Plenty of adventure activities are available in the Crested Butte ski area. We enjoy snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and in summer, biking, day hikes, and touring remote mountain roads and passes. There are many community events that are scheduled throughout the summer for all interests.

For the back country extreme skiers, Crested Butte ranks as having some of the greatest amount of extreme terrain available for snowboarding and skiing that is accessible by lift. That is what keeps us coming back for more!

There are many opportunities to stay fit with a cross fit gym in town, yoga studios, and ice hockey and nordic center that rents cross country skis and snow shoes. One of our favorite trips includes XC skiing to the yurt deep in the trees surrounding Peanut Lake. There are organized dinners throughout the ski season that allow you to ski/snowshoe by the moonlight.
