About the property

Crested Butte, Voted #1 Ski Town In North America!

Welcome to Unit 401, the penthouse unit at Black Bear Lodge, which is located directly across the street from the Westwall lift at Mt. Crested Butte. The condo's views of both the mountain and valley below are spectacular, both summer and winter. With more than 2700 square feet, Unit 401 can sleep 12-14 people and includes 4 spacious bedrooms, each with a private bathroom and television. The unit consists of an extra large living area, dining area, gourmet kitchen, 2 king bedroom suites, 1 queen bedroom suite, 1 twin bedroom suite, a bunk room with 2 bunk beds and 2 leather sleeper sofas, 4.5 bathrooms, a steam shower, 3 private balconies, a utility room with a full sized washer and dryer, and an elevator that opens directly into the unit's private foyer. The unit has beautiful custom furniture and luxury, high quality bedding. This property is well suited for a large family or several families, offering a significant amount of privacy and space for everyone.

Black Bear Lodge is a beautiful condominium complex located at the base of Crested Butte Mountain offering underground heated parking serviced by an elevator, an outdoor hot tub, and outdoor grilling facilities.

The winter activities are second to none. With an abundance of ski runs ranging from green to extreme double black, Mt. Crested Butte offers something for every type of skier. The kids' ski programs are extensive, and the base of the mountain offers bungee jumping, tubing, and zip lining. For those more adventurous skiers, Crested Butte offers an excellent array of back country skiing.

While skiing is king in Crested Butte, the summer and fall seasons offer incredible weather and marvelous activities. Fishing, hunting, mountain biking, hiking, golfing, whitewater rafting, and numerous town activities are wonderful during the warmer months. The summer kids' programs are also incredible. Summer activities at the mountain include miniature golf, a rock climbing wall, bungee jumping, zip lining, Frisbee golf, and a ropes course. Crested Butte has also been designated the “wildflower capitol of Colorado” and the golden aspens in late September and early October make the area absolutely gorgeous. For outdoor sport's enthusiasts, the fly fishing and elk hunting are world class!

Awesome and Luxurious!

  • 5 of 5

GREAT accommodations for a multigenerational family vacation. Heated parking and elevator access directly to the penthouse, no walking or stair climbing required. Easy access to the slopes so that skiers of all ages can come and go during the day without driving. Large family living and dining areas for together time. Plenty of bedrooms and individual bathrooms for each family. An incredibly helpful property manager, that went above and beyond to ensure that we had everything that we could possible need. We vacation in Crested Butte on a regular basis, both summer and winter, and will definitely book around the availability of this unit. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

OMG! Our Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse is absolutely beautiful and the location could not be better! We had 14 people...adults and young adults ages 13 - 23...and we never felt crowded at all. With 2 Master Bedrooms, a Queen Bedroom, Bedroom with two twin beds and a bunk was perfect for a group our size. We had everything we needed in the of the line throughout. Living room and dining area was great for watching movies and having dinner. The two balconies were great for relaxing and looking at the beautiful of the slopes with Mt Crested Butte right in front of you and the other with the view of the town of Crested Butte and the surrounding mountains. I can't say enough good things about this place. In addition we met the owner and manager of the property and they both were SO nice! The manager went out of her way to make our stay absolutely perfect! This property is 5-star all the way around. You basically ski down to the Westwall Lift and walk across the small street in front of the condo and you are home. The skis can be put in the racks in the garage for safe keeping and easy access for the next day. We will be back as soon as possible!

Perfect for our family ski trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property is amazing! Our extended family has skied CB several times but have never stayed over by the West Wall lift, so I was not aware of how easy it is to use. This penthouse unit at Black Bear lodge is literally steps away from the base of the West Wall lift. Skiers in our group ranged in age from 68 to 7, and everyone was easily able to make the short walk out the front door and across the street to the West Wall Lift (no lines at all on President's Day weekend) and take the green run down to the main base area. It is also very easy to ski back down to the base of West Wall lift when you are ready to come in - via green, blue or black runs. People in our group would come in at various times in the day to grab a quick sandwich or take a bathroom break and then head right back's that easy and close! The views from this unit are AMAZING - so many windows with beautiful views of Mt. Crested Butte. Another special feature of this unit that we really enjoyed was the elevator that opened onto the unit's own private, indoor (heated!) landing where you can sit to take off your ski boots and other gear when it is time for a break. The elevator also can take you directly from the 4th floor penthouse to the heated garage, so you never have to go outside to get to your car (great for loading/unloading), and your car is always warm when you are ready to go out to eat (Slogars, anyone?!). The unit itself is BEAUTIFULLY decorated and immaculate. It is so clean and prestine that it seems brand new. The beds are very comfortable, and the bathrooms are spacious. The living room seating is very comfortable and plentiful for a big group to gather to play games, tell stories about their ski adventures, or just enjoy the beautiful scenery. We can't wait to come back again!

Incredible property and location! Exceeded all expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Even offered us early check in and accommodated us when we asked for a couple of extra hours at the end of our stay. Wonderful experience!

Thanksgiving on the mountain

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 and Black Bear Lodge was spacious and comfortable for our clan over Thanksgiving. Marcia took good care of us during our stay and was delightful showing us around upon our arrival. The kitchen met all our needs for a Thanksgiving feast and we enjoyed a delicious meal with family and friends. The snow finally came and just in time for opening day on the mountain. The views from BBL are a holiday Christmas card when the snow comes and lights twinkle and glow all around the quiet neighborhood. BBL is a well maintained home and we are happy we chose this property for our holiday. It is home away from home and we hope to return soon.

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of skiers have been renting through VRBO for the past 12 years at various locations and this was one of the best.
