About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The First Street Guesthouse is a unique blend of old and new. Starting with an historic, log cabin that was part of Crested Butte's original Creamery, the home has been architecturally enhanced, with the main part completely new. During construction and renovation, the use of non-toxic, natural building components has earned the home many prestigious awards.

Located just steps from Elk Avenue, (Crested Butte's historic main street). The First Street Guesthouse sits tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood. The downstairs opens onto a large entry area and three bedrooms, two with queen-size beds and access to exterior patios. The third bedroom has a twin/trundle bed. All boast cozy goosedown comforters. The large bathroom on this level offers a sumptuous, deep, Japanese, jetted, soak tub and oversize marble steam shower. Nearby is a handy washer and dryer.

The upper level, with it's breathtaking views of mountains in all directions, has a gourmet kitchen with soapstone counter tops and stainless appliances. It flows openly into an eating/gathering bar, dining and living areas, all surrounded by vaulted ceilings. Also on this level are a one-half bath and cozy den with futon for overflow sleeping space.

Outside, there is a lovely, fully-fenced and gated yard ideal for children and even a canine friend. Inside and out, the home is meticulously maintained and offers more than just a homey, comfortable vacation setting. Its owners, 15 year residents of Crested Butte, work hard to ensure its guests a most memorable stay.

Elk Avenue's shops and restaurants are close by. The town's free mountain bus shuttle is little more then a block away. Hiking and Nordic trails are even closer! Because of First Street Guesthouse's ideal location, a car is not required; everything is within easy walking distance, regardless of the season.

We will consider well trained dogs. Please ask us about our dog policy and fees.

Guestbook comments from the manager

312 First Street is the ideal destination for families and groups who want to access the best of Crested Butte. Hiking from the West Maroon Pass from Aspen, we arrived in CB tired and excited to explore. The house is situated in a quiet road around the corner from the main street - Elk Avenue. A central living and kitchen are was our hang out spot and was airy, modern, and rustic. 3 Bedrooms on the ground floor were cozy and quiet. The location is outstanding for exploring the town, with everything from the local coffee shop to great restaurants and book shops just steps away. I can’t imagine a more perfect location to base your group in CB. On top of everything, Elizabeth, the property manager, was super responsive and helpful!

Fabulous house in a great position

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. In a great position, quiet, short walk to the bus stop. It had everything you could want during your stay, really well stocked. Beautiful view of the mountain and a huge kitchen, light filled living area. Elizabeth was fabulous. Always there when you needed her. Highly recommended.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

It was a mother/daughter (and dog) trip. The house is in the midst of all the restaurants and shops, yet very quiet at night. The three bedrooms are downstairs with an amazing soaking tub and spacious shower. We went on a local hiking trip just by walking out the front door. Upstairs is airy and bright with views of the mountain and aspens. Elizabeth is very accessible and helpful. We will stay here again - and may move back permanently.

nice house near all the Elk Ave fun

  • 4 of 5

Excellent living space on 2nd floor which provides nice view of the Butte and more light. Good bedrooms with nice bedding. Worked well for our family of 6 plus 2 dogs (albeit they would prefer a house with a yard!).
