All 3 bathrooms have been upgraded in the last 2 years ; 1 bathroom has jetted tub with shower. One bathroom has rain shower and hand-held for a deluxe shower and bathroom on the main level is shared. 2 bedrooms have queen pillowtop beds and 2 have king beds that can be split apart into 2 singles each bedroom. If you have a group of singles, i can make the kings into single pillowtops; therefore you have 4 singles, 2,queens, regular roll a way, commercial roll-a-way and there is a loft for adults only with 2 pillowtop beds so 10 singles. The loft has 5'5" headroom, pull down stair and window egress, but not designed for children. The house is set up for adults and children 9 years of age and older or babies as we have a pack and play. The home is not set up for toddlers and young children as we do not have child safety items such as gates and padded corners. Ask if you have younger children as exceptions can be made.
Dec 18 thru Jan 3, March and July are high season so best to book early.
There is no better way to increase your vacation value than by combining lift tickets, rental equipment and activities with your rental as a complete package. We can assist you in building a custom package to meet your specific needs and desires while staying at Ski History Haus. We have lived and worked here for 25 years!
Our house was featured in December 2014 Powder Magazine, Crested Butte Magazine, International Skiing History Magazine and CB Winter 2014 Guide. I have the articles scanned if you would like for me to send to you. January is a perfect time to come because our rates are so reasonable.
email for monthly rates for January. IMPORTANT NOTE: Because we are fair to our neighbors, we do not allow Trailers, dirt bikes, ATV's and NO DOGS. We also do not allow smoking on the property anywhere. (thanks) The house rental is for the number of guests specified and is not to be used for an event party unless we discuss before you rent. We have had many family reunions here and extended families from weddings and it has worked great for the groups! If you have questions call us at the ski history haus or Paul Hooge. There is a lot of building going on in Mt Crested Butte and some may be really close to us. Let me know if you want to know about the building for this summer 2018.
Before we owned a home at Crested Butte Mountain, we went on ski vacations (from Ohio), so we feel that we know what will make a perfect vacation for couples, guy trips, girl trips, extended families with children and grandchildren as "we have had those trips". We love skiing, hiking, biking and relaxing. You will have a great time staying in our home! There is wifi throughout. If you want Paul to talk about the museum collections, just let us know. During the winter, Paul can give you a free 2 hour tour of the mountain so you can decide which trails are best for you.
Please note. In the winter, you can make bookings up to a day before you are coming as we move into the caretaker unit for the whole winter as we pretty much ski a lot and the caretaker unit is great for us. In the summer, if we do not have bookings by June 27, we need 3 days to set up a booking. So if you have interest in renting the house in the summer, please book by June 27; it is appreciated.
If you need to make a tentative booking, call me and i'll block for 48 hours and then you can book through vrbo
N O T E MAIN LIVING AREA is up a full flight of steps (most houses here are built that way to capture views. So, just letting all potential guests know you do have to climb stairs (they are 40" wide with sturdy hand rail.)
