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!

Amazing views at 53 Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at 53Paradise! The accommodations were very comfortable, the hot tub delightful and the views amazing! The home is very conveniently located to everything you could want to do in Crested Butte. We also appreciated that there were plenty of convenience items for the bath and kitchen as well as spices and condiments. Thanks for providing us such a great place to explore the outdoors and be together with our family.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 enjoyed the spectacular views in this charming log style home. It was just as the pictures showed. The home is laid out well for a larger family or two or three couples. Everything was as hoped for a perfect time in the mountain beauty of Crested Butte.

Repeat Renter Summer & Winter

  • 5 of 5

I have rented Hunter's home four times and I have only chosen to rent others when this home is not available. Home has one of the best locations in Mt CB area backing up to an incredible view to be enjoyed in the hot tub. House has everything you would need. Final note is that Hunter is fantastic to rent from and has always gone above and beyond when things are needed.

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
