"We were in Crested Butte for our son’s July 16 wedding and found Wild Iris to be perfect for us (my husband, me, our daughter and her husband). Because of the wedding, there were a number of family members and friends staying in different locations, including in Mt. Crested Butte. The house is very close to the main stop for the free shuttle that runs between Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte, so it was easy for people to drop by our house. It is only a block off the main street, Elk, which has a number of restaurants and shops. The Wild Iris location, however, is quiet because it does not have commercial establishments near it. It also is very close to the local grocery. Basically, once you arrive at Wild Iris you don’t need to use your car unless heading off for a hike or event that is out-of-town. The house has a nice historic feel to it, has some flowers around, and is a charming place to stay. The living room, kitchen and dining area are combined and open onto the deck and small fenced yard so it doesn’t feel cramped at all. The house included some nice, home-like touches such as a book on local hikes. Some places we’ve stayed clear everything out so you have to buy salt, pepper, etc. These were at the house, along with various spices, laundry soap, etc. Presumably this varies depending on the last rental, but it was nice to have them. We also liked the fact that our daughter was able to bring her elderly dog along. Overall it is a nice house in a great location and a fun place to stay.
We found the owner and the property manager to be very helpful. Also the pictures and description are accurate (minus the snow, of course -- we were there during wildflower season!)"
