It is rare to find a house of this size and amenities on the mountain, but rarer still to have the amazing views and within walking distance of the ski lifts and mountain activities. With three floors and two main living areas (3 in the summer), there is plenty of room to spread out. Whether collecting around the state of the art kitchen, island and dining room while preparing a meal, playing pool or watching a movie in the amazing surround sound atmosphere of the lower level den, everyone has enough space to spread out or collect to share the fun of the day with each other.
The main level houses the kitchen, dining room, living room, half bath, a sitting room and a master suite. The lower level has two bedrooms, a large bathroom, laundry room, drying room, mud room and huge game room. On the third level is a private bedroom with a full bathroom.
The spacious master bedroom is really a three room suite with the bedroom, a separate sitting room with 42inch flat screen TV and DVD player and a large double vanity bathroom with shower. The bedroom can be separated from the sitting room or opened to accommodate families with small children who want to share the two rooms as one. We've hung two plush robes in the bathroom for your lounging or hot tubbing pleasure!
The kitchen is huge with state of the art appliances, ice maker, four burner gas grill, stove, microwave and fully stocked with everything you will need to prepare, serve and eat a meal for as many people as you can entertain. It is framed with a large island counter with bar stools. We know that the gathering place for family and friends is usually around the kitchen, and the space and layout can handle any party!
The dining room is directly off the kitchen. There are two leafs that can increase the size of the table to accommodate 8 - 10 from 6 comfortably. The floor to ceiling windows face the Butte and can be opened in the summertime to enjoy the cool evening breeze and the deck.
There is a sitting room, ideal for morning coffee or a drink as the sun sets directly off the dining room. It has a 40 inch flat screen TV, but you might just want to watch the sun on the mountain through the huge picture window facing the Butte.
The large living room with vaulted wood beams completes the indoor section of this level. It has two large couches and three lounging chairs, surround sound stereo system with Iphone attachment, a telescope and games in the coffee table. But perhaps our favorite feature is the two stories of windows that capture the best view of the Butte in the town.
The exterior portion of this level is a huge wrap around porch featuring a large hot tub, outdoor seating area, fire pit and gas grill. During the summer we often have our swing on the deck as well. Again, the views are amazing! You can watch the end of the day skiers from the hot tub, the sun setting with 270 degree views of all the mountains around you or the milky way on clear nights. This truly becomes a third living area for our friends and family.
The downstairs living area is the main entrance to the house and has a two plus car garage. In the garage, we have five sets of snowshoes and a bunch of sleds for the winter and five or six outdoor chairs for use at the house or outdoor concerts in the summer.
Walking in the house, you'll find a bright entry way. To the right is a huge sixteen foot long mud room with storage for everyone's coats, boots and outdoor equipment.
Entering into the rest of the downstairs to your right is the second huge living/game room with a pool table, darts, wet bar with fridge and wine storage and a massive 60 inch flat screen TV with surround sound that will blow your socks off! In addition to the DVD and Wii, we have stocked the movie area with tons of movies and games.
On the other side of the downstairs level, there are two bedrooms, a large bathroom, a laundry room and a dry room. Each bedroom has a walk in closet and a dresser. One has a queen bed and the other has a bunk bed with a full size bed on bottom and twin on top. The dry room is ideal for hanging ski clothes, boots and towels leaving them warm for the morning.
On the third level, you'll find a large bedroom with a queen bed and large closet and a full bath with shower. There is additional storage in the hallway.
Once you've stayed with us, you will understand why we can't say enough about the views. You will also be very conveniently located to everything on Mount Crested Butte. While you can walk to the slopes in the winter or base for concerts during the summer, the corner in front of the house is also the first stop for the mountain bus for a less than five minute ride to the base. There is no other option on the mountain that combines the spacious comfort, amenities, convenience and, did we meantion....the views!

About: We've called Crested Butte our home away from home for many years and recently got married on the mountain top.
Why Crested Butte, CO, USA:
There is no other property on the mountain that frames the majestic Crested Butte in every major room and also from the hot tub on the expansive porch. If you want plenty of room, convenience and beautiful surroundings in and out, The Whetstone House is the place for you.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We really look at our experience in Crested Butte as a combination of unmatched outdoor activities, relaxation, great times with family and friends and beauty. When we walked into The Whetstone House for the first time, we experienced them all and couldn't leave.
