Welcome to THE CARRIAGE HOUSE!
Come and experience ... PURE LUXURY, ECO-FRIENDLY BUILDING, SUPBERB IN-TOWN LOCATION, GREAT CRAFTSMANSHIP & the BEST VIEWS IN THE BUTTE!!! The Carriage House is so special that many couples have stayed here for their wedding, honeymoon and even proposed marriage here!
GREAT IN-TOWN LOCATION on the coveted western, historic side of town. Being only 2 blocks from west Elk Avenue (the historic main street with boutique shops and wonderful restaurants), steps away from the free bus shuttle to Mt. Crested Butte, a few blocks from multiple trails, and only 5 minutes from the Arts Center and playground -- no car is required when you stay in this perfect location! It is in the middle of it all, yet very quiet, surrounded by horse pasture and across from the last bit of open space on the western side of town!
Being our guests you will be dazzled by SPECTACULAR, UNCOMPROMISED VIEWS of towering Mt. Crested Butte, Paradise Divide, Mt. Emmons, Whetstone, and Maroon Bells as well as the historic Kupushion barns.
LUXURIOUS LIVING ... Two bedrooms and two baths with beautiful furnishings, luxurious-high quality bedding and linens, and many other cozy comforts make The Carriage House perfect for a small family or two couples (max 4). The upper floor has an open living space with vaulted ceilings over the GOURMET KITCHEN with steel island table with 4 stools (see stocking details in amenities) and cozy living room where you can relax while taking in the amazing mountain views. The living room is outfitted with the latest home theatre system, flat screen TV, cable television, FAST WIRELESS INTERNET, and a cozy fireplace. Off the living room is the deck for catching some rays and admiring the beautiful views. Also located on the upper floor is the cowboy bedroom with 2 antique spindle twin beds and a slate tiled bathroom with shower.
The lower floor includes a beautifully furnished, inviting queen bedroom with a pillow top mattress, 600 thread Egyptian linens, down comforter and pillows, Afghani dowry chests and block prints and an exquisite travertine tiled bathroom and STEAM SHOWER with a Chinese Bedouin vanity, antique ceiling tiled mirror and big fluffy, eco-friendly towels. (Sorry - the garage is not available to guests.)
From the amazing 180 degree view of the mountains you can dine and relax on the outdoor patio complete with a Weber BBQ perfect for summer grilling, log double bench, teak wood table and chairs, and a big red market umbrella.

The house was completed in late Feb 2008. Here are comments from a couple of our recent guests:
Guests # 1
'We are at the Carriage House and it is fabulous! Everything is exactly as you described, including the cleanliness. We ski'd a half day today and are completely exhausted ( in a good way). Snow was incredible.'
Guests # 2
The home was absolutely beautiful! It was very comfortable and in an excellent location. We were able to mill around town and go hiking and snowshoeing. Our dog loved all the open space and nature! Thank you for allowing us to stay there. I know it must be tough letting people stay in your home, but we took care of it as if it were our's. Thanks again.
'The Carriage House is fabulous! We loved it! You have fitted it out beautifully, which we really appreciated. It was wonderful to come back to somewhere homely after a hard day of skiing, and the kids loved playing in the snow around the house...
So often, booking any kind of vacation feels like doing business. It is a real pleasure when it feels like there is a real person on the other side of the transaction who is genuinely interested in the vacationer enjoying themseves...
Congratulations on what you have done with the house. It's clear that you have tried hard to incorporate the atmosphere of Crested Butte - historical, laid back and a responsible eye to a sustainable future, You have accomplished it very well.'
As usual, Crested Butte did not disappoint! We had a great week hiking, biking, enjoying the scenery, etc. We love your house! Several of the features of the house make it very special. And I would love to know the stories behind many of the decorative items!
Thank you very much for sharing your house with us.'

Crested Butte is the most incredible place to call home in the USA! And The Carriage House is just perfect for a special honeymoon or small family holiday - luxurious, romantic, beautifully decorated, FABULOUS VIEWS, and ultra convenient!
Fabulous views, pure luxury, eco-friendly, less than 100 yards to the free shuttle, two blocks to boutique shops and restaurants, and lots of room to run and play!
This is our third time to Crested Butte and 3rd time in your awesome house! We have had the BEST time again for our Spring Break. It has been sunny and beautiful all week, but a snowstorm is coming tonight... perfect ending! We love this friendly little town and hope to experience it in the summer sometime.
We loved seeing the Carriage House from the Silver Queen Lift! We'll miss it. Thank you again for a wonderful stay.

We were really pleased. It is a great set up for 1-2 couples! The attention to detail was evident and the location is ideal.
I enjoyed two weeks in the Carriage House this fall. The decor was charming and made me feel at home immediately. The location is perfect with views from three sides and easy walking distance to town and hiking trails. I hope to be able to return someday.
We were very pleased with this property, absolutely perfect for a couple. Fantastic attention to detail, well laid out, well appointed. A masterful example of what can be done with a challenging space.
The best thing I can say is that we instantly felt right at home at this property. It did not have that typical rental house feel.
Great location for Elk Ave access. Super comfortable for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Great views in all directions. Property manager was super friendly and helpful. The owner, Paula, checked in midway through our week stay. Only item to note is the traffic on Gothic Ave is constant and can be heard from the cabin. If you're looking for a serene, quiet setting this isn't it. I wouldn't categorize it as annoying, it is an "in town" location after all. Overall loved CB and the cabin. We'll be back!
We truly enjoyed staying at the carriage house this summer and wish we could have stayed longer. It is a perfect home for our family and love the location to town and hikes. We hope to return again next summer, already missing being away!
The Carriage House was perfect! Great location to everything and the views are amazing! This was our first trip to Colorado and couldn't be happier we picked Crested Butte. It has a wonderful charm that we will certainly visit again. We had an issue with a door handle coming off but Paula was very quick to respond to our email and handle the problem. I would HIGHLY recommend this property and town to anyone looking for an exceptional vacation!
