Overview

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 views during the day and at night are spectacular. The ski area is a ten minute drive. Lot of fun things to do there winter and summer.

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 or part thereof.

In the winter (November to April) I add a snow plowing fee of $100/week. Plowing of my driveway, which is nearly 100 yards, is about $50 each time. If there is no plowing done, or only once, I will refund your fee. If there is a lot of snow and plowing more than twice, I cover the excess plowing. Thus, you will never pay more than the $100/week. Wapiti Lane is routinely plowed and there is no charge. Remember: Snow is a good thing! This fee may not show up in your first quote - I need to manually add it for winter rentals.

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

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 like noise and want to be around a lot of people all the time, rent in town or on the mountain.

A wonderful home with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

The views are fantastic, the home is super comfortable and well-equipped. An easy trip into town allows you to take advantage of the great food, free concerts and Camp 4 Coffee. The distance from town features the best sunset views imaginable. The property manager is exceptionally responsive as well.

Great stay in CB

  • 5 of 5

Skip the home was perfect for our stay at CB. We hiked each day and really enjoyed

winding down at the house in the evening.The balcony is great for star gazing and taking in the beauty of the area. The property is very convenient to town. We will not hesitate to contact you again regarding our next visit to CB. Thanks again,

Kirk

Our Favorite VRBO experience yet

  • 5 of 5

This was our favorite cabin that we have ever rented. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could. The view is amazing (surrounded by stunning mountains on 3 sides). The home was spotless upon arrival. Skip has thought of everything, yet the home is not crowded. The cabin is quite cozy. Make sure to hit the porch at night for stargazing. It was spectacular. It was nice to be so close to Crested Butte, but placed outside of town just enough to get away from the activity. Everything you need is only 5 minutes up the road. Doesn't get any better than this one!!!

We ended up hiking every day for week due to the countless beautiful trails just within a short driving distance.

One last thing, departure day at this cabin is a piece of cake. No hidden surprises in what's expected of you. Skip has thought of everything to make your stay a true vacation.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! I also love the stargazing from the deck. Can't do that in town with all the lights! skip

CB rental

  • 5 of 5

For all of our years of skiing and renting this was truly one of our best experiences.

The house was very well laid out, comfortable, clean with a well stocked kitchen etc...

The location was so convenient only 5 minutes from town, restaurants, and shopping.

We loved the outside deck with incredible views of the surrounding mountain range.
