Our in-town, desirable location is one block off of Elk Avenue [main street]. It is our dream home, designed to perfection with amazing original art, custom furniture, antique textiles and rugs, top of the line beautiful linens and a newly redesigned, state of the art, thoughtfully stocked kitchen. Every location in CB is within easy walking distance, eliminating the need for a car. There is ample off street parking if needed though. In the summer we cruise around town on the 6 townie bikes we use and leave for guests to hiking trails, restaurants, the grocery store and shopping. It is truly a summer highlight and a very local thing to do!
The original renovated front cabin of our home is the OLDEST historic house in Crested Butte. (The reason we fell in love with this particular home!!!) The builder was meticulous in keeping it authentically cool and historic! The addition at the rear is open and perfect for family and friend gatherings. Making our home beautiful, yet comfortable was the object of our design.
Crested Butte is the most authentic and amazingly beautiful town/resort in Colorado. It is casual, easy and a come as you are town. CB is a place to adventure, explore, relax and fall in love with its natural splendor and crazy wildflowers. The skiing if off the charts and there are rarely lift lines. There is nothing to not love in this old mining town.
Our home sleeps a large family or group in separate and private areas of the house. It is perfect for two families with kids!
The hand forged iron fire pit with 4 adirondack chairs in the back yard is a great gathering spot on summer evenings and winter days. We love to enjoy cocktails with friends, roast marshmallows, hotdogs and enjoy the mountain air. The cornhole and horseshoe pits are a blast in the backyard.
The bathrooms are fully stocked so there is never a need to bring shampoo, conditioner, blow driers, toothpaste, hairspray, Qtips, Ibuprofen and lotion. We love it to be easy.
There are 2 large, flat screen tv's, a songs sound system, DVD, Xbox and WII player and a foosball table. Fun for all the ages. We have a ton of board games and puzzles that are well used when our family and friends come to CB.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS OUR FAMILY HOME THAT WE RENT ON A LIMITED BASIS. WE RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THAT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN RENTING OUR HOME THAT YOU PLEASE RESPECT AND TREAT IT AS YOUR OWN! IT IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE. THANKS!

About Jill and Jerry Baker
We are empty nesters with two adult, professional children. We met while attending the University of Colorado in Boulder and were married in 1986. We have raised our kids here and they too are huge outdoor enthusiasts. From their earliest days they have skied, biked, run, camped and fished in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. We make a trek to the mountains most weeks and feel truly blessed to enjoy all that our state has to offer. We hope you feel the same way when you visit our home in Crested Butte.
Jill and Jerry Baker purchased this House in 2013
Why Jill and Jerry Baker chose Crested Butte
After owning a property in Summit County for 18 years we became disenchanted with the touristy, year round crowds, local traffic and crazy commute times on I-70. We decided to explore the abundant resort towns in Colorado looking for a more authentic feel and down to earth ski town experience and landed in CB! After spending a summer week in CB and falling in love with the natural surrounding area, we rented long term to see if we loved the area year round. With a resounding yes, we knew this was where we wanted to vacation and retire. It took us 9 months to find a perfect mix of a Historical property with eco-friendly construction, green materials and with high efficiency HVAC systems. (Thoughtful construction leaving a minimal footprint on the environment was very important to us!) The Historical section of the home gave us a piece of the mining history of CB we were drawn to with new open spaces to fit all of our families needs. The new, empty home provided a palette to create our dream mountain home. We wanted to design the home to be airy, light , comfortable and fun. The stodgy and overdone design of the typical mountain home featuring antler chandeliers, browns, dark reds, dark greens and heavy curtains were a look we wanted to avoid. We opted for a take on a Bavarian 5 star hotel with greens, pinks and comfortable down furnishing and bedding to sink into. The old and new sections of the home delight the eye and allow the occupants to feel a part of history of CB while luxuriating in the newest and best of comfortable living. In my design I always look for a few key pieces to delight and surprise the visitor. I hope you will easily spot my whimsical pieces and smile at the humor intended. Enjoy!!!
What makes this House unique
Aside from the design aspects of our home both inside and out, the proximity of our in-town home to everything CB has to offer makes your stay fun and easy. Once you are here a car is not needed. (A shuttle from the Gunnison Airport is an easy 20 minute ride.) The grocery store and the shuttle to Mt Crested Butte and are two easy blocks away. Historic Elk Avenue, where you find the action is one block away. We wanted to be able to walk and ride everywhere with our family, friends and future generations.

The Baker Family
Great home for families!
My husband and I shared this lovely home with our two sons and their families.
There were six adults and four kids. The kids loved the downstairs "bunk room".
They had their own space and TV so the adults could enjoy the sitting room. Kitchen was great. Not only did it have all the appliances needed it was stocked with so many food items, condiments, bottled water etc. We spent two weeks and hated to leave. The master suite had a very comfortable king size bed and large bathroom that was separated from the other upstairs bedrooms. Hope to stay here again when we return to Crested Butte.
Thanks! It was a joy to have your family!!!
Our "Home away from Home!"
This is the 2nd year in a row we have rented with this fantastic family. We go in the summer to escape the heat, and it continues to amaze and enthrall us! Besides being such a great location, we also adore the Baker family. The house is so well built for any need you might want.....right down to that famous black folder which contains any info you need. Not only is the house well suited for 2 families, but it is built with all you need to cook a fantastic gourmet meal, or take a fabulous steam shower. The renovations to the back yard complete this treasure. We look for ward to our 2 week stay and hope to return for many years!
Fantastic family cabin
We have rented this home two years in a row and we find it to be an amazing home for adults and kids. We stay here with our 3 kids and another family that has 2 kids as well. The downstairs bunk room or "kids lair" as our kids have named it is perfect for 5 to 8 kids to bunk in and hang out. The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are all high quality and the kitchen has everything you need for your stay. The location is fantastic and we walked to all the restaurants on Elk Avenue. The home is close to the grocery store as well. I could not recommend a home more than this one - just don't try and rent it for our week next year!
You guys are absolutely the best renters ever! We are so glad that you have decided to come back for a third year! YAY! Thanks for the great review!
Great house for a ski trip!
We had a group of 14 for a ski trip and this place was perfect! The house was awesome and very clean. The location could not have been better: just a few steps to the main strip and also right by the free ski shuttle. The owners are extremely nice and were very prompt in returning all of my messages. They also were very helpful with tips and suggestions. I'd highly recommend staying here any time of the year and I would definitely do it again!!
Thanks Jimmy! We are thrilled that our home in CB worked so well for your group! We really appreciate the amazing care 14 men took! Thanks again!
We rented this house with another family and had plenty of room for us all. It's a fabulous house with a fun atmosphere and included everything you could want. Short walks to ski shuttle, restaurants, shops....so that we never had to get in our car the whole week! Owners were great to work with and will rent again if we go back to CB.
You were fantastic renters to have over New Year's! We would not have wanted to give our home up to renters who were any less fabulous! Thanks for a great holiday experience!
