About the property

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath 2,600 Sq Ft+/- Open Concept home. About 1 Mile To The Lifts!


Feel comfortable and relaxed in this great mountain home. The main floor includes the gourmet kitchen, dining room, living room, office area, two bedrooms, a full bath, a half bath, the laundry room, and the entry with adjacent equipment room.

Upstairs in the home you have the awesome billiards loft, two bedrooms, and a full bath. The ceiling in the house is vaulted to nearly 30 feet and finished with solid tongue and groove Aspen wood.

In the kitchen you will find new stainless appliances, hammered copper sink, petite river rock back splash, slate floors, and beautiful slab granite counters - including the island/bar.

There is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy dining at home in the spacious dining room with seating for eight, plus two more at the island. The dining room has amazing woods and mountain views, and opens to the large, private patio overlooking the 1/2 acre lot.

On the patio you can enjoy the expansive views while relaxing with friends and a beverage, or relive your epic day on the mountain while soaking in the amazing scenery.

The main living area includes knotty pine floors, vaulted tongue and groove Aspen ceiling, and a fabulous wood burning stove. There are two new, large, very comfortable sofa's to relax on and relive the day's adventure.

Bring your favorite DVD (or enjoy one of ours) for family movie night on the Sony 48 inch 1080p flat screen television with Blu-ray/dvd player. Please note that there is no cable or dish service at this time. We have never missed it - after all we didn't come to paradise to watch tv :-) If you have a Netflix or Hulu account, it is compatible for streaming. Simply log in and let the viewing begin!

Hard to 'disconnect'? If you need to do a little work, or share the days photos with friends and family, simply head to the office space that adjoins the living area. Connect your ipad or laptop to the flat screen monitor, complete with mouse and keyboard (private hi speed internet and WiFi included).

There are two bedrooms downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs, each with it's own personality. The first bedroom downstairs enjoys a queen bed with new mattress, dresser, and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom downstairs has two twin beds, double dresser, and a walk-in closet. Both bedrooms include custom log furniture and quality linens. The two bedrooms share a full bath with double vanity and dry stacked stone shower/bath tub. The main floor also has a fun half bath (powder room) that has been custom painted by local Crested Butte artist "Share Bear". There is a laundry room with front loading, high-efficiency washer and dryer for your convenience (no more looking for quarters!) At the front entrance there is a welcoming entry room, PLUS a generous equipment room for ski/board/bike storage (gotta take care of the toys!).

Upstairs you'll find two more bedrooms and another full bath. The first bedroom upstairs includes custom twin bunk beds & dresser made from pine logs, walk-in closet, and 42 inch flat screen television with DVD player (not a Blu-ray). The second upstairs bedroom boast a new king size bed, log night stands and dresser. The bathroom upstairs has a double vanity and features a river rock shower with frameless glass door and five shower heads (one on the top and 4 on the sides).

The game room is also upstairs and overlooks the main living area. There is a full sized Olhausen 8 foot pool table, making this the perfect place to relax and have fun after a big day on the mountain (nine ball in the corner pocket!). Not a pool player? There is seating on high bar stools and a small pub table, as well as a comfy love seat. The game room is lined with large windows - each with gorgeous views.

During ski season the free town bus stops at the end of Gothic twice an hour. It's an easy walk that takes about 4 to 5 minutes from our door to the bus stop. The bus will drop you in the center of Mountaineer Square (the bus also picks you up here for the return trip).

If back country skiing or snow shoeing is your preference, you can take the same free bus 1/2 mile north to the end of Gothic and step out to the edge of great mountain wilderness - just waiting to be explored. Snowshoeing Snodgrass is so beautiful. Definitely worth trying.

If you are looking for a place to have it all, while getting away from it all - this is the home for you. The property is incredibly quiet, yet only about a mile to the ski lifts and entertainment!

About Greg

We are Tulsa natives who have always loved being in the mountains. Our two young kids have already developed a similar feeling for being where the air is thin. For us, Crested Butte feels like Mayberry. It IS the perfect place for families and friends to build memories for a lifetime. (this picture was taken on the patio in the summer of 2013)

Greg purchased this house in 2013

Why Greg chose Crested Butte Area

We had been looking at property in Crested Butte for 15+ years. The primary criteria was simple - a place that is quiet and peaceful, with those amazing rocky mountain views. The close proximity to the slopes is icing on the cake.

What makes this house unique

This home was built in 1979 and completely renovated, top to bottom, in the 2010's. The house is constructed using steel I-beams, not traditional wood framing. This makes the walls extra thick, allowing for plenty of insulation. The end result is a home that is amazingly warm and super quiet! The minute you walk through the front door you will feel the quality of this substantial construction.

Very comfortable,well stocked home, pretty view, very responsive and considerate owner.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed renting this home and immediately felt like we were at home. It is in a great location, has a pretty view of the mountains on Mt Crested Butte, and the owner was always very quick and considerate with his responses. Very caring. The house was VERY WELL stocked, very comfortable, and nothing additional was ever desired. We would easily rent here again, in any season! Thanks for such a great stay! Felt like home!

Silent and Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home and is stunningly silent! We have rented a number of private homes in the US and this is one of the best so far. It has fabulous views and 2 very large extremely comfortable sofas to enjoy them from. The beds are very comfortable and everything is very clean.

The description is accurate. If there is one thing missing it is a kettle. As Brits we do like our tea and had to improvise with a saucepan.

We skied nearly every day and were going to use the bus which stops at the end of the road. However, in the end we drove the short distance to the free car-park, since it was half-empty most days and gave us more flexibility.

We also snowshoed on 2 days, once at Snodgrass and once at Washington Gulch. Both are recommended.

Owner's Response: Jayne, thank you for the kind words. We agree that one of the best things about our home is the quiet. You're close to the ski slopes and close to town...but you have the quiet when you want it. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again next year.
