Crested Butte is the Wildflower capital of Colorado and home to Crested Butte Mountain Resort. From our ski history haus you can walk 5 minutes up the ski easement to the quad lift. In the summer you can ride the lifts with your bike. You can start from Castle Road and within minutes be on one of the major biking trails. This is world renown for fly fishing and many of our visitors come mainly for the fly fishing in summer. Crested Butte area also has big game hunting. Boating on the Blue Mesa Reservoir is only about 50 minutes away.
Our prices are based upon stays of 2 to 4 nights, so longer stays are less (ask). You can rent our home as a 5 bedrm/4 bath (3 bedrooms are en suite) and the other 2 share a bath ( sleeps 11). or you can rent as a 4 bedroom/ 3 bath (sleeps 9) or you can rent as a 2 bedroom/ 2 bath. .
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: This is a true VRBO as we are the owners; when we rent our home, we stay in our caretaker unit that has its own entry at the rear. Most people never even know we are around, but it is good if you have questions or need assistance. We are from Ohio and both graduated from Ohio State University. Paul has a degree in art and archaeology and Kathy has a degree in education. We both skied and raced in the midwest, but always took vacations in the West so it was an easy choice to move here. If you have questions, we know the area and can help you with your skiing or hiking/biking questions. If you want a 'tour of the ski mountain' your 1st or 2nd day here, Paul will include that for a few hours for free so that you feel comfortable with the mountain. Paul and Kathy both Alpine and Nordic ski in winter and hike in summer. Because we have lived here for 23 years, we can offer ideas on Fishing, other summer activities as well as all winter activities.
Why the Owner Chose Mount Crested Butte, CO, USA:
Because the house was designed with renting in mind, you can rent as a 4 bedrm/3 bath that sleeps 9 comfortably for as low as $415/night on a weekly rate in January. The house is mainly rented as a 5 bedroom/4 bath and loft which sleeps 11 and those are the prices quoted under rates. We were looking for ski-in or close property and found it for a very reasonable price in 1993. In 1992 when we first stopped in Crested Butte, we were in awe of the huge surrounding mountain peaks and open vistas. It did take us 5 years to build the house and we have upgraded and made improvements every year. Because we lived in the Midwest and always took ski vacations in Colorado or Utah, we feel we know what makes your vacation enjoyable. There are pillowtop beds with high quality linens even in the loft! The diverse library suits everyone's taste in case there is a part of a day when you just want to relax and hang-out in the house. The kitchen if fully equipped with a large roaster, pots & pans of all types and 2 crockpots, all spices and natural gas grill on deck. The house is close to everything (the slopes, the sledding hill, the biking and hiking trails) and it is 2.5 miles from town. The free shuttle stops at our driveway in winter and it is a 4 minute walk in the summer to one of the bus stops. January, April, May, October and November are the most reasonable months to rent and Crested Butte has become a year round resort.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
THANKSGIVING and JANUARY are BARGAINS- Check out the prices. Call me with any questions 9707991818. Our place is decorated in antique skis, snowshoes and ice skates with varied art collections related to winter. Although there are antiques around, everything is well fastened so you don't have to worry about children. We have young grandchildren and they love coming here winter and summer as it is fun on the property as well as the playgrounds in town. The home can be rented as a 5 bedroom/4 bath; 4 bedroom, 3 bath or if you have a really small group you can rent the 2 bedrm by itself (see vrbo 71375)
