About the property

This 3BR 2 BA home sits on ten acres, nestled in a small, private community

The tranquility, views and privacy of this home are well worth the very short drive or bike ride to town. The ski area is a ten minute drive.

This house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. On the entry level you will find the two-car garage, available for guest use, two small bedrooms and a full bath. Move upstairs where the kitchen, living room, deck and master suite are located.

The open floor plan and vaulted ceilings upstairs lead to a large picture windows and French doors to the deck and unobstructed, incredible views of Mt. Whetstone and surrounding peaks. In the living room is also a gas fireplace that not only heats the room nicely in the winter, but provides the ambiance you are looking for in the mountains. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare a full Thanksgiving feast...or just to reheat leftovers from one of our many local restaurants! The dining room table will seat up to six comfortably. Natural stone flooring can be found throughout the kitchen, dining area and master bath.

If you are looking for the true Rocky Mountain experience, look no further! You will find this to be your home away from home for your visit to the Crested Butte area.

Pets considered. I will need that part of Application completed. There is a Pet Fee of $95/pet/week and an additional refundable security deposit of $150.

About Skip

I am an Air Force Academy grad, retired Air Force JAG, and practice law in Colorado Springs. Originally from the east coast, I fell in love with Colorado and just can't leave. I was the designer and general contractor for this home. I am willing to share my home with you and trust you will treat it as your home. I believe you will find the feel of living on ten acres to be wonderful.

Skip purchased this house in 2004

Why Skip chose Crested Butte Area

The peace, quiet and views of ten acres and convenience of being close to town and the ski area.

What makes this house unique

Ten acres!!! If you want to be around a lot of people all the time, rent in town or on the mountain.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

This was the perfect place for our family to stay. Just minutes from town but still felt we were away from it all. The house is great. Everything we needed was there. On our last day a herd of 100 elk ran by the front of the house. Skip was great and made sure our stay was exactly what we desired. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Phil: Glad you had a wonderful time. I saw that herd of Elk a few days later, bedded down about 1/2 mile south of my house! They don't seem to care about fences. Just a small jump over. Put a scope on them and counted 130 + They hung around for several days. Pretty awesome experience. I'm pleased you got to share it. skip

We loved this property! Nice secluded acreage with marvelous 360 degree mountain views! We have stayed on the mountain, in town, and in CB south and this is absolutely our favorite area to stay! It felt just like home!

Comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Great get away from the crowds and noise of downtown Crested Butte yet only a few minutes away. The home was nice and very well maintained with the owner checking in several times to make sure everything was good. The garage was a plus as it offered a good place out of the elements to load and unload your car as well as security at night. With the absence of light at this location we saw tons of stars and the Milky Way. Something we had seen since we were kids. The mountain scenery was second to none. Although we were aware of it when we rented, my wife wished it had a bath tub. Would highly recommend this home.

Excellent location close to town. Communication with owner was great and house was setup for ease of use. Plenty of towels and fully equipped kitchen. Everything was labeled for functionality. Big 3 car garage fit all our gear for mountain fun.

Beautiful location great home

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Crested Butte is absolutely gorgeous. The landscape, rivers, and open space is breathtaking. Second, the rental we stayed in was perfect. We are a family of six and it easily accommodated us. We enjoyed grilling on the deck and just sitting out there appreciating the views. The location makes everything easily accessible. We could be in town in less than 5 minutes, and on Crested Butte mountain in about 10 minutes. Fishing and hiking were very close, and a paved bicycle path to town was also very close. The owner swung by to make sure everything was going well and working in the home and even threw in some restaurant suggestions!! We were very happy with our stay and hope to return again very soon to Crested Butte and this lovely house.

Perfect winter wonderland getaway. Very private, but still conviently close to town and ski resort.

  • 5 of 5

I really lucked out with this property for a last minute planned Spring Break trip. The snow was amazing. I've skied nearly all the resorts in Colorado, but this one I somehow missed over the years. Crested Butte is perfect skiing. The skiing weather was perfect, it snowed nearly every night leaving pristine powder on the slopes. This house is a perfect size for our family of four. My daughter and son each took a cozy room down stairs and we took the master upstairs. There is a really large couch is where we spent perhaps too much time. Kitchen had all the necessary utensils for lots of cooking. Oven worked great for cookies and nachos. Washer and drying worked well. In the pastures outside, there is a decent slope where I taught my kids some snowboarding and they could play in the snow. Many thanks to the man plowing the driveway every morning keeping the path in clear. No 4-wheel drive was necessary. The views from all the windows were just amazing, you couldn't get these views from town or at the resort. Thanks to the landlord Skip, for being so attentive, he answered all my questions and made the visit very easy with email updates and text messages.
