Crested Butte is Colorado’s best-kept secret, and one of the last undeveloped ski towns. The atmosphere is friendly, laid-back and there’s a relaxed attitude everywhere you go. You won’t find a traffic jam here and crime is near non-existent.
The climate is cool and crisp, with sunny days year round and the night sky filled with bright twinkling stars. Historic downtown architecture reveals Crested Butte’s past as a bustling mining town, where well-preserved structures from the 1880-1910 era have found a second life, playing home to an array of shops, eateries and favorite nightspots. You’ll be hard-pressed to find fast food or corporate coffee here; even the local supermarket has a personable small town feel to it.
619 Gothic Avenue is a smart choice for lodging in Crested Butte due to its central location: about a five minute walk to downtown, and an even shorter walk to the free public shuttle, which means you won’t need a vehicle to get around town and even better, you won’t need to look for a parking spot whenever you hit Crested Butte's main street. Downtown is where visitors and locals alike converge for socializing, dining, shopping and other services.
This property is in a building with just six units total and is known around town for its unusual sloped roof covering the atrium while not only lending character to the individual spaces within, but providing light and solar warmth on cold winter days. Live trees and plants reside beneath the high atrium ceiling, lending the space a greenhouse-like atmosphere.
Beginning in autumn of 2017, the atrium roof will be structurally repaired and have large skylights installed. Energy efficient windows and a redesigned main entry are also planned. The project is expected to be complete at year's end.
Sleeps 4 very comfortably (and in a pinch can accommodate 5)
Sleeping arrangements are as follows:
2 guests on King Sized bed
2 guests on individual sofas in living room
accommodations for a 5th guest on self-inflating air mattress
Complete bedding, blankets and pillows for all 5 guests is provided.
Amenities include secure WiFi, HBO, Netflix, and DVD players, and HD flat screen televisions in both bedroom and living room. A variety of books and DVD titles are available and a brand new HE washer and dryer have been installed inside the unit, which means there's no hassle of trekking to a laundromat for clean clothes.
This property is on the ground floor and has reserved private parking by the main entry. (Currently reserved parking has been moved to the rear of the building due to the renovation of the atrium roof. Entry is temporarily limited to the back door, which is within a few feet of direct entry into the unit itself). It’s easy to get in and out without climbing stairs or packing into an elevator. The private patio features live plants and convenient storage space for skis, snowboards, bikes and other equipment right by your front door. (This area temporarily closed due to repair work to the atrium roof. Expected to re-open by year's end).
Newly remodeled and redecorated, this unit has a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. The free shuttle is a block away and a paved bike and walking path at the base of Mt Crested Butte is right down the street. There’s also a playground, and park with tennis and volleyball courts around the corner. You won’t find a more central location with zero traffic noise. In winter, the snow makes everything quiet; in spring and summer months, most of what you’ll hear are occasional bicyclists as they pass by or the chatter of birds in trees across the street.
Booking this vacation rental is easy; inquiries and questions are welcomed and the Availability Calendar is continually updated. Eliminating property management companies means you’re dealing directly with the owner, and that not only allows for lower rates, but the ability to interact with a real person who genuinely cares and will treat you as a valued guest.
Look around and compare all the details and you’ll find that 619 Gothic Avenue is easily one of the best all-around vacation rental choices in all of Crested Butte! Extra effort and lots of thought have gone into this rental to make it clean, comfortable, safe and secure.
