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.

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!

Stop looking and book this one!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was everything we wanted and more. The hot tub received daily use. The kitchen was well stocked. Plenty of room for our small group of five. And the views were really special.

Great Place for a Big Group

  • 5 of 5

This house was even better than the pictures. It was laid out very nicely, well maintained and very clean. The owners were nice to deal with and responsive. I would totally recommend this place for a party of 8 or less. The shuttle system to go ski or to head down to town is great. Crested Butte really has their act together in terms of facilities, transportation and skiing. To sum it up, great house rental, great location and great ski mountain/town. I look forward to a return trip.

Relaxing and accommodating

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in paradise. It lived up to all expectations and then some. The cabin is equipped with everything you may need. Our main focus was on skiing, this cabin was perfect for that. It was about 1/2 mile away from the base of the mountain. The bus literally picks you up at the end of the driveway every thirty minutes and drops you off at the base. After a long day of skiing we soothed our worn out bodies with a dip in the hot tub. There we sat nearly speechless because of the view from the back porch. The view is unobstructed to elk mountain range, I believe. The cabin is well equipped with all amenities from wood for the stove to sugar for your coffee. Very nice washer and dryer set and plenty of clean towels. The layout of the cabin is great. Large dining area, breakfast room and a bar top in between. Great natural lighting through the large windows in the dining, breakfast and master bedroom. The Heated floors felt great on the cold toes. The homeowners were very helpful and quick to respond to all questions. We woud defiantly come back and would recommend this place for any body looking for a relaxing stress free stay. One more big thanks from the cru from Texas. THANKS!
