Beautiful, charming, cozy, clean, convenient cottage in the heart of Crested Butte.

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn's Cottage was the perfect place for us to stay for our Crested Butte summer vacation. The cottage is very spacious and had plenty of room for our family of five. It is beautifully decorated, well appointed, and just steps from downtown CB. Carolyn was very helpful and responsive with all aspects of our trip. We loved it and can't wait to come back!

Charming house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this cute cottage. As other reviews mention, it feels much bigger than we expected. My daughter loved the room downstairs, and there was plenty of space for the whole family. It is a short walk to everything in town. The hosts were quick to respond to my many questions.

Absolutely awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is great! Everything we hoped for and way more. Tucked away in a back alley with snow piled up to the roof level on most sides. Cozy, great mountain decor, all the kitchen amenities, and comfortable beds. We will be back in the summer for sure!

Wonderful Cottage in the heart of CB!!

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn's Cottage was a perfect place for our holiday in CB. It was right in town and just a 1/2 a block away from the ski shuttle bus! The cottage was perfect and clean, equipped with everything you could need from dish soap to hand soap she thought of everything! I can't tell you how many times we have rented homes and there was nothing provided! We had a big snow storm while we were there and the owners shoveled the walkway for us, that was very nice and thoughtful! We will definitely come back and visit this Cozy cottage. Thank you Carolyn!
