About the property

3 Bedrooms + Loft 2.5 Bath Walk To Lift & Ski Home With Amazing Mountain Views!

This house was designed by the famous Chicago architectural firm Nagle & Hartray back in the 80's, and has been featured in magazines for it's innovative design.

Our house has an updated chalet mountain feel with a wide open floor plan and 50 windows to take the grand landscape.

The main floor is one big room with built in extra wide benches (sleeps 2 people) that surround a modern wood stove and a thick shag "chill zone" rug that you will be laying on... we promise. With 3 walls that are almost all glass, the sun pours through the space and connects you to the amazing cross valley views and mountains. It's a very social space that lends itself to an inclusive relaxing experience for your whole group.

You'll spend mornings around the wood stove drinking coffee and stretching before you put on your ski boots and step out the door for a short walk where you can ski down to the Gold Link lift. At the end of the day, your last turn is in the driveway. Evenings are spent in the large kitchen cooking together and chatting to your friends as they sit in the living room watching the sun's last light splash across Snoddgrass mountain. It's a good way to end an amazing day in this beautiful land.

With so much glass, you can lounge on the couch or lay on the soft comfy benches and watch the stars come out. The valley faces away from the lights of town, so the night skies surrounding Gothic Mountain are extra twinkly and bright.

There are 3 bedrooms and one loft. The upper floor is the master bedroom, bath and loft. With 9 oversized windows facing out into the valley, and 30' ceilings with a loft that sleeps 1 with a ladder approach; it's a great experience for ladder ready adventurers. The room may be one of the most romantic places in all of Colorado.

The lower level has two bedrooms and full bathroom with 2 sinks. These rooms are connected to a big space that has a brand new 50 inch flat screen TV on the wall with a comfy couch to relax into if you want to watch movies. The TV is Dish and has wifi with HBO and Netflix. One bedroom has a queen bed and ample closet space. The second bedroom has 2 new twin beds for adults or kids and there is a trundle bed to sleep a third.

If you want to go to town and you don't want to drive, it's a 8 min walk to the bus stop. Service runs late most nights if you want to have some libations in town.

Summer time trail access is world class. From the driveway you can ride 2 of the top 10 trails in North America, Snodgrass, and the legendary 401. You can also ride all the on mountain trails with a 2 minute downhill to the lifts.

The house has a lock off apartment with a separate entrance, and the caretake is on site. You probably won't seem them much unless you want to. They are there to help with any of your needs including managing and stocking the wood stove, and as a great resource for local knowledge. They can help you with where to eat, ski, drink, walk in the woods, who is the best ski tuner in town, where to get a pair of goggles to replace the ones you forget.

They are extremely quiet and respectful of your space. In the winter, we recommend all wheel drive vehicles.

About Kathleen Summers and Rex Lint

We moved from Summit County Colorado to CB in 2012. We wanted to live in a place that had a small town vibe, access to world class mountain biking, skiing, and nature.

We are long time ski bums and have worked in the industry for the last 25 years. We run a film production company and travel the world making adventure sports related content for a variety of clients.

Kathleen Summers and Rex Lint purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathleen Summers and Rex Lint chose Mount Crested Butte

We have lived in this house for the past 4 years and without exception, everyone that walks into the house stops for a long moment and looks at the space and the views, and takes a deep breath and smiles. Most people just walk over to the bench and lay down! The space is truly unique and created with love. The access to the back side Gold Link lift is a 5 minute walk, so you can ride a quick lift and be in the Mountain Village in 15 minutes. If you want to go to town and you don't want to drive, it's an 8 min walk to the bus stop. The Mountain Express free shuttle stop closest to our house is Winterset.

There is also a late night Taxi Service (970) 209-0509.

BEAUTIFUL home! GREAT location.

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful find for our family of 7! At the top of Mt. Crested Butte - away from the congestion of town, but super easy to go into town (think mountain bike down and ride bus up - haha). Hop on the mountain bike trail across the street, walk to the playground (and new outside exercise loop) and tennis courts. Beautiful views all around.

The house is amazing - very simplistic in design and decor and so refreshing! Super clean and very comfy. We did enjoy hanging out in the front room with the fluffy rug! Kids LOVED the loft for sleeping - plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen was well-stocked and had exactly what we needed to cook and eat. Each bathroom had soap, shampoo/conditioner and body wash.

The owners, Rex and Kathy, were accommodating and so personable. We enjoyed our visit with them and hope to return someday.

Absolutely perfect for our reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better place for our reunion and gathering spot for our good friend's wedding celebration. The view from every room is amazing…especially the main floor and outside deck. Although there were beds available, I chose to sleep on the bench next to the window where I watched the stars and full moon throughout the night, then watched the sun rise over the Rocky Mountains from the East, lighting up the mountains around us. We were a group of hikers and easily found many wonderful, absolutely beautiful hikes, hiking out the front door. The well outfitted kitchen and new bbq on the deck allowed us to have memorable meals around the dining room table overlooking the mountains. It is very easy to drive or walk into town…and the owners were more than pleasant to meet and work with. We all hope to return.

Great house and fantastic view.

  • 4 of 5

This house has great sleeping accomodations, a nice kitchen, and a fantastic view. There are a couple things to know. One, you need to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle for the driveway and for driving into the ski resort/lift area. Also, a washer/dryer is not included in the rental. However, the owners are very accomodating people and allow you to use their washer/dryer. I would assume this would change in the future as more folks rent the house. Lastly, there isn't a grill so be prepared for alternate methods to prepare food. Lastly, there is a great hill behind the house for the kids to play in the snow and sled. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property. This is a new rental property so the owners will probably be making some adjustments as they get more reviews.

Serenity Now

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate enough to spend three weeks at this property last spring. It snowed it's guts out the second night I was there which set the stage for some great skiing. Crested Butte is second to none in terms of variety of terrain, and this house is situated perfectly for a ski vacation. If you are not a downhill skier it is still fine, since the views are outstanding, and it is also adjacent to some great cross country ski options. My go-to in that regard was the road up to Gothic, which is an out and back so you could make it as long or short as you wanted depending on time. It wasn't mountain bike season while I was there but you could certainly access Crested Butte's extensive trail system right out the front door.

Recreational opportunities aside, the house itself is very warm and welcoming

(woodstoves always feel homey to me). The paint color was also very much to my liking. The decor is tastefully done and the kitchen is very functional. The deck is great on a warm day. It's a 7 minute drive down to the town of Crested Butte which has a lot of great restaurants and pubs. The owners are great, the neighbors are great, all in all it was an enjoyable stay!

Amazing stay in this gorgeous house with the best hosts ever, wow!

  • 5 of 5

If you get the lucky enough to stay at Rex and Kathy's ski house you've found the best spot around! This immaculate ski in and ski out home was not only beautifully decorated and meticulously maintained, but also cosy, convenient and the views nothing short of breathtaking, we can't wait to go back! And, Rex and Kathy were the most fun local hosts we have ever stayed with, there to help with anything needed along with great local recommendations for dinners out and spots to be sure not to miss. The chill zone was our favorite spot int he house and we enjoyed many lazy mornings there watching the weather roll across the mountains. Would highly recommend this home for any vacation stay and the BEST ONE in CB! WOOT!
