A rustic cabin tucked away in an aspen forest with fantastic views of Mt. Crested Butte, Red Lady, Whetstone and other surrounding valleys and peaks. This 1-bedroom/loft cabin entails a small fully equipped kitchen, an upstairs loft with full bed that sleeps 2, renovated bathroom with shower (no bathtub), small sunroom/nook (which also sleeps 1-2), washer/dryer, wood burning stove, internet and outdoor fire pit area, nestled on 15 pristine acres. Full cabin and amenities are updated and very clean, no TV. Perfect spot for outdoor/bike/ski loving guests who are looking for a tranquil experience in Crested Butte, while being only 15 minutes from downtown CB and a few minutes from Tully's Restaurant, Camp 4 Coffee, Liquor Store and the General Store all located in CB South. This cozy mountain retreat is literally minutes (pedal from door) from world class mountain biking and hiking that stems from the Cement Creek drainage right down the hill. Outdoor adventures can be directly out your doorstep from this adorable cabin nestled on 15+ acres where dramatic views and wildlife are abundant. Want to get away from the crowds and relax in nature, this is the place. All linens, towels and firewood provided. Sorry, no pets. Note that cabin is attached to primary home on the property where full-time owners separately reside, and can help with on-site questions, local tourism info, especially mountain biking and outdoor recommendations. Also note that the bed in the loft is a full size and if you are taller than 6'1", you will be a little tight on leg room. Downstairs nook can sleep taller people. 2 week maximum rental.

Too small for us. Bedroom not comfortable. Tried to use day bed but is was too hard. Great location...very private. No fans or AC. No screen on windows so insects enter while trying to stay cool.
Cozy and quaint. Amazing views!
This is the perfect spot for a couple to get away for the weekend. Only a 10 min drive from town and 15 to the base of the mountain to ski. Very close to mountain bike trails too. Nestled in a cozy spot in the trees with incredible views of the mountains. The only thing I don’t love was the ladder that goes up and down to the bed. Not horrible, but if you get up a lot in the middle of the night it can be a bit of a challenge. We made a fire both nights after having dinner in town, and sat and played cards and enjoyed our time there.
Good place, just a little small
Things didn’t work out as we planned, but the owner was very cooperative and helped greatly.
Not as advertised...
We enjoyed our stay in Crested Butte, however, our stay at this little cabin was exactly that: little. The size of the space we felt was not worth the cost per night we paid.
If you are looking for a tiny home experience this is the place.
It's also clear the owner is renovating the place as many of the un-framed windows and doors were eye sores. He also had tools and a trailer lying out in the back yard. The floor of the "loft bedroom" is still plywood and the mattress is the kind you use at youth camps, plastic and foam. The shower is a 2'X2' type unit.
We also noticed all the smoke alarms were disconnected... not sure why.
We enjoyed soaking in the hot tub under the stars when the motion light wasn't going off. Theres no convenient seating area in the kitchen space, just a cushioned seat/bench. Not ADA appropriate, as you need to be pretty able bodied to get into the loft bedroom. If we had paid a little less per night this would have been a great place to stay but I think next time we're in Crested Butte well be staying in the larger condos in town.
Was As Advertised:
*Was listed as a small place and actually mentioned the exact square footage within the listing.
*There were 2 windows, not "many" that you mentioned, that have yet to be trimmed; windows were indeed framed and because they were recently installed, trim wasn't installed yet at the time of your visit.
*Yes, there were a few tools (shovels & rakes) and a trailer on the property, which always remains there, but try to find a place in CB that doesn't have tools, motos or snowmobiles in the yard; pretty rare.
*The loft floor is wood. It's an old cabin in the woods and the floor has been that way for years.
*The mattress actually came from IKEA and is not the type of mattress you see at youth camps. Was the only nice mattress that would fit into the loft area due to small access up the stairs. We personally slept up there on that mattress for 3+ years and it was fine.
*The shower is not a 2'x2' unit, rather a 3'x3' shower stall for clarification. Pretty standard in small houses and bathrooms, also mentioned in listing with photos.
*Smoke alarms were removed days before your arrival because prior tenants were triggering smoke alarms every time they cooked or used the wood burning stove, thus we agreed to take them down so all alarms through entire house were not activated several times a day from basic cooking. Smoke detectors were actually working too good and became a nuisance, thus we temporarily removed them.
*Again "As Advertised," the kitchen space is small, has 2 seats around table and exactly what was listed and shown within photos on listing. Someone didn't read the listing thoroughly before booking, I'm sorry.
*This cabin is not recommended for city slickers used to 5 star luxury hotels. Everything in the listing is accurate and sufficient photos showcase every room in the house, as well as outside images to boot. The cabin is a small place, nestled on 15+ acres in the woods, it's rustic and not for people looking for a fancy place, but those looking for more a tranquil outdoor experience with all amenities needed for a pleasant stay-in a cabin.
This was a great place to stay-it was very quiet, the windows look out onto a lovely aspen grove where we watched birds, chipmunks and a marmot, the cabin was clean and we enjoyed the hot tub after getting caught in hail on a bike ride. One thing to consider is that the bed is on the short side, which was fine for us, but could be difficult for a very tall person. Also, there is a nice futon in the "living room" but not a couch. Again, we didn't mind this, but someone with back problems might have trouble with the arrangement. The owner was very responsive and we had a terrific time-thank you!
Perfect Little Cabin with a Big View
Brandon's cabin was exactly what we were looking for. It was private and quiet, just far enough away from town. The views from the sleeping loft were amazing.. a perfect way to wake up. We also enjoyed using the hot tub under the stars. We loved having coffee and breakfast in CB South, 5-10 mins from the cabin, as well as a beer after mountain biking. Brandon supplied us with everything we needed, including great advice on trails in the area. We would definitely go back!
