This large home which sleeps a total of 8-10, with the option of a detached one bedroom cabin, is nestled in the woods above Nicholson Lake between the town of Crested Butte and Mount Crested Butte Ski Area. This home is only 3.5 miles from town! Just a short bike ride on single track to town. The property offers spectacular mountain views in all directions, with immediate access to trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, plus close proximity to downhill skiing or the town of Crested Butte, with its charming shops, pubs and restaurants. This property sits on a knoll with the gorgeous Slate River on one side and Nicholson lake on the other. Lots of supping available down the river or on the lake.
The main house has five bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. There are 2 extra beds and a half bathroom. It offers a large dining room, breakfast nook and wonderful living/gathering space. The fully-equipped kitchen,1/2 bath, laundry and mud/gear rooms are all conveniently located on the main level. The house has five flat-screen satellite TVs, internet, a Finnish sauna and an outdoor year-round hot tub. At times it has accommodated 3 families at once. It is ideal for multiple families with so much room inside and out.
The lower level bedrooms offer a second living room with surround sound TV/DVD. Especially for children and infants are a fully equipped main house toy/game room, two “pack-'n-play” cribs, a trundle bed, two high chairs and two changing tables. For an extra charge the guest house is designed for those who'd like a private getaway, with its own bedroom with queen bed, private bath and efficiency kitchen.
For summertime guests, there is an outdoor mini-playground and camp-style marshmallow-roasting pit, as well as a great seasonal screened room adjacent to the dining room. For winter guests, snow removal service is provided, and there is a one-car garage. There is always ample driveway parking, regardless of the season ... a feature not often found with in-town and on-the-mountain rentals.
The separate honeymoon suite/cabin has a queen bed, fireplace, kitchenette and it's own private bath. This is an additional $125 per night.
