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.
Pool / Spa
Sports & Adventure Activities
Our stay at Paradise Rd. was nothing shy of fabulous. We traveled from Wisconsin to attend our son's graduation in Gunnison and we could not possible have chosen a better place to stay. The home is nicely furnished and well-stocked with every possible amenity. There is absolutely nothing that fell short, nothing we could say "if only they had a ..." The views out the windows and off the deck were spectacular!!! Personally, I was awestruck with how clean the air was in the mountains, and how cold and clean the water was right out of the tap. The Quiet was surreal. And the stars at night!!!! As a final note, Hunter was fabulous to work with, he was kind, patient and responsive to our questions prior to arrival and was ever so gracious during our stay. If we were given the option to give this home 10 stars, we'd give it 11!
As 53 Paradise is our home of more than 30 years, it is mighty rewarding to have guests who not only treat it as a home, but appreciate it in the way we do. Thank you for your kind words, and for having chosen 53 Paradise in the first place. You would be a welcomed return guest anytime!
Great location, amazing views
This was our second time staying at 53 Paradise. We really enjoyed being on the quiet side of the mountain, but still being close enough to ride bikes to the mountain village or town.
If you mountain bike, hike, or run this location is ideal. Close to Snodgrass, Lupine, 401, and the CBMR Evolution Bike Park. If you come during the summer and have kids we highly recommend the RMBL in Gothic nature camps or other camps in town.
Hunter and the property management firm were great at checking in on us to see if we needed anything. The house had everything we needed from a well stocked spice cabinet to extra towels for the hot tub.
We can’t wait to come back!
Thank you for your kind remarks and helpful tips for other CB visitors, and we look forward to having you back with us in the future!
Excellent property and the owner is wonderful to work with .
We enjoyed out third stay at this property. The house is clean, has a great location, and the owner always checks in to be sure everything is going OK.
Thank you for your kind remarks, and also for your enjoying our home at 53 Paradise. We look forward to having you again!
Comfortable and roomy.
The only thing that would have made our stay better was a foot of new snow. We had a fantastic week at Hunter's Crested Butte cabin. It was such a delight to return there after a day of skiing. The shuttle bus picked us up and dropped us off right in front of the house. We cooked many meals and enjoyed lounging around the roomy table and watching the olympics in the comfortable living room. The hot tub was glorious and much needed at the end of the day. Hunter was incredibly responsive and could not be easier to work with. I can't wait to return!!!
Loved our Ski Vacation in this house!
Our group of 5 loved our time at this house. The view! The hot tub! The heated floors! The fireplace! The punctual ski shuttle stopping at the house every half hour! The house was spotless, there was plenty of firewood, the layout was great and the kitchen was well stocked. We appreciated being able to store our skis, snowboards and boots in the garage overnight. If we were to come back to Crested Butte we would not hesitate to stay here again. It was a wonderful experience.
All that being said, I have 3 cautionary notes. First, even with four-wheel drive, our truck got stuck at the bottom of the icy driveway. Second, we were not provided with complete instructions for logging on to the internet. Third, (and probably most important) if your arrival day at this house is a Saturday or Sunday, there is no one (no owner, no agent, no management person) to assist you if you have an issue with the house. As it happens, we arrived at the house late on a Saturday afternoon to find that the driveway had not been plowed. We called the management company to inquire only to get a recording "our office hours are Monday through Friday 9 to 5." I would like to make a suggestion to the owner of this house to find a property manager that can always be available on "check in" day. I have rented houses in Colorado many times, in New Mexico, Wyoming, South Carolina, North Carolina, Vermont many times, New York, etc. Even though I have not had many problems through the years, it is most often on "arrival" day (after many hours on trains, planes and/or automobiles) that it is critical to have a person on standby in the event of an issue. For example - we arrived at a house once to find there was no power to the basement or first floor. Another time the key was not left in the designated location. In both of these instances the issue was quickly resolved to the agent who was on call to help.
Thank you for your kind review, taking note of even the homey details such as in-floor heating. Being based in a tropical climate, we also appreciate the warmth of heated floors. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and of course welcome you back.
As to your cautionary notes, all are well received, as is all constructive input from guests. We will meet with our property management company to address the icy drive, better and more accessible instructions on using the WiFi, and being more accessible to new arrivals even over holidays and weekends. PR Property Management does mention in its off-hours and weekend phone recording an emergency number to call, but your comment will prompt me to include it, as well as WiFi instructions, in the welcoming letter to all future guests.
We hope that you will be one of those next season!
A perfect holiday getaway!
It was the perfect getaway for a Christmas holiday. We're a family of 8 with two small girls and Crested Butte was a perfect place to ski and the house was cozy and had all things needed to feel at home.
