Mitch purchased this House in 2003
Why Mitch chose Crested Butte
22 Elk Avenue is the last house on left as you drive up Crested Butte National Historic Distrct's main Street. It is the ultimate neighborhood in this town. Close to restaurants, shopping and the free bus shuttle. You can ride your mountain bike or cross country ski out your door and access miles of epic trails without ever touching pavement. I have no proof but knowing the area and having been the Chair of the Gunnison County Historic Preservation Commission for ten years I am convinced that this is where native americans set up their camps for thousands of years and european settlers followed their example to put their main Street. The superior micro climate is noticeable from even blocks away as you are protected from windier storm paths. Today's vacationer can enjoy being in the core of town and at the edge of it at the same time.
What makes this House unique
Crested Butte Mountasin Resort is one of the best ski mountains in the country. The extreme's are challenging and plentiful. The quality of slope grooming has risen to world class in recent years. The terrain parks and features (my son's winter habitat) are state of the art. Telemark skiing was reborn here in the 70's. I remember taking my old school lace up downhill ski boots down to the saddlemaker in Gunnison to have him sew on vibram soles that would fit into the three pin bindings on my long skinny tele skis. The equipment has come along way and some of the top Tele skiers in the world ski this mountain. Crested Butte was also the place where mountain biking started. I bought my first 15 speed mountain bike from a friend in 1980 it was built here in 1977 on a little john frame using motorcycle drum breaks. You could not walk into a store and buy a mountain bike at the time. I still use this bike as my townie today. The personality of the community is what makes this town, friendly, athletic, cutting edge and socially responsible.

The location is incredible! Our family of 10 stayed for a ski trip. The accomadations are adequate and clean. The real highlight is the location. One block from bus stop and tons of restaurants, bars and shops. Coffee shop/bakery directly across the street. We loved crested butte also and will be back to stay at this house!
Perfect for nordic
This house worked really well for our nordic team and coaches. We were just a few blocks from the nordic center and the sleeping accommodations were awesome. Loved this house and the location. The owner was very flexible and accommodating.
Good for a family stay.
Fairly basic accommodations but excellent location
relaxing home and great location
We loved our stay here. This is a very relaxing home and is great for a group of people. The side yard is wonderful and it is remarkably quiet, especially for being on Elk street. The linens could use an update and ice cube trays would go a long way, but we will definitely be contacting Mitch again.
Great traditional CB house in a perfect downtown location.
Fun place to stay. Not fancy but more like the mountain town it is in.
Stayed here with 4 adults over 4th of July weekend and it was just magical. You cannot ask for a better location when visiting Crested Butte. Right on the main street but at the end, so you have some peace and quiet. An adorable cafe just across the street, off street parking for 2 cars and even has a side yard and fire pit (which many other places do not.) we made a fire every night! Mitch lives right across the street and was instantly available for anything we needed. Will definitely be coming back!
