About Hunter Martin

Teresa and I live and work in Costa Rica but have owned 53 Paradise since 1981, spending time there in winters, summers and autumns.

Hunter Martin purchased this cabin in 1981

What makes this cabin unique

Tremendous views and a sense of solitude, although very close to the ski mountain and a 5 minute ride from town.

Peaceful yet close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in Crested Butte. The Martins we very responsive to our questions as we prepared for our vacation. Property management firm in town was also quick to respond while we were in town.

Great location whether you are skiing in the winter or mountain biking in the summer. We biked and ran the Snodgrass trail several times which is less than a mile from the front door. Also a playground a short walk from the house which came in handy with the kiddos.

Can't wait to go back. Thank you for opening your home to us!

Overall nice place to stay

  • 3 of 5

Negatives: the dining room/living room window covered with plywood...so much for the views, quite a few burned out lights, no toilet paper or paper towels (major bummer after a 12 hour drive), owners car is in the garage, front entrance to house was a sheet of ice...really needs to be kept clear for safety...my son spent two hours clearing it so his grandmother wouldnt fall, grill didnt work

Positives: beautiful cabin in a good location (free shuttle bus ride from skiing areas), clean, comfy beds, ...if it werent for the plywood... the view from the cabin is stunning, everyone we met in crested butte was friendly and helpful, great skiing, fun shops downtown and tons of good restaurants

If I had known our view for a week was going to be of plywood I would have chosen somewhere else to stay. That being said, our family had a lovely time and lots of fun was had by all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your taking the time to review our home. Part of our quality control is receiving constructive and honest feedback from our valued guests. We take these comments very seriously, and have contacted our property management company about them. It was inexcusable to have left our own car inside the garage, as the standard is to remove it and give you (our guests) the use of the garage and a dry, clean entrance to our home. It was also inexcusable to have been short on basic supplies, including TP and PT, and we apologize for the inconvenience. Light bulbs do burn out, and should be replaced by managment. However, we do store replacement bulbs in the laundry room for the exception. This year, we have received an inordinate amount of snow, and the plywood was placed in front of the dining room window to protect it from ice falls from the roof. Nonetheless, we will look for a more aesthetically acceptable way of protecting the windows in the future. We hope you will accept our apologies, and return as welcomed guests. Hunter and Teresa

Very nice house with ample room for family and extended family to spread out.

  • 5 of 5

The house is right on the Crested Butte bus path that picks up every 30 minutes or so. Super convenient. Interior of the house allows for people to spread out and not be on top of each other. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook a large meal. Hot tub was running smooth and you can't be the view. We really enjoyed the trip.

Breathtaking! Immaculate and well taken care of!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been better. We slept with the windows open while our friends in Arkansas and Texas experienced a heat wave. The house and views from the deck were stunning! The property management folk's response were top notch. Superb in every way!

PERFECT Family Home! GORGEOUS views!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I literally stayed in Paradise during our July stay at this wonderful home. The views from the back deck are beyond description - they are that breathtaking and completely unobstructed! We hiked CB almost everyday and took in the amazing views in the evening from the hot tub. It was one of our favorite parts of the house! The floor plan was perfect for our family of 5 and we could have fit in a couple more. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was great! The owner was very responsive and super attentive. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our week in Colorado. I highly recommend and hope to be back one day!
