About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, sleeps 2)

This adorable cabin, named Emmons Cabin, has a first floor bedroom and a full bathroom. The cabin is perfect for a couple looking for a special get-away. The location is ideal--on the quiet west end of Sopris Avenue, one block south of Elk Avenue, in the center of the historic district.

MAIN BEDROOM: The main-level bedroom is small, but bright and sunny with a large south-facing window. The bed has a Sealy, Super-Plush, Queen pillow-top mattress with 100% cotton linens, down pillows and a down comforter.

MAIN LIVING AREA: The main living area has a comfortable leather loveseat and a large moss rock fireplace with a gas fireplace insert--perfect for cozy evenings by the fire. The dining area has a drop-leaf table that easily expands to accommodate an extra guest or two. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you will need for meal preparation.

BACK DECK: There is a large back deck with patio seating and a gas grill.

The cabin is located on the historic west side of Crested Butte, just a one block walk to Crested Butte's best restaurants and shopping, and just one block to the free shuttle stop at the corner of Elk and 2nd, which takes you to Mt. Crested Butte for skiing in the winter or riding and hiking in the summer.

PET POLICY: We own a standard poodle and want to welcome guests with well-behaved dogs at our cabin. We welcome pet owners who are bringing their dog to Crested Butte to spend time with it, but ask that pets not be left alone at the cabin for extended periods of time.

Comfortable cabin, great location, but a bit short on extras (no clothes drawers, just partial closet which also shares utilities). Bathroom was very dim and toilet wasn’t working well. But since no one wants to stay inside in CB during the summer, what the heck! Large “For Sale” sign in front didn’t do much positive for ambience.

Tiny but comfy

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is small, the bedroom barely holds the queen bed; by the time we got our yellow Lab's dog bed in place at the end of the bed, we could hardly open the back door. But the kitchen and bathroom are fully functional and the living/dining area was perfect for our needs. We especially enjoyed the back deck and small but grassy and shady back yard. The location was perfect for us, just two blocks from our favorite breakfast/lunch place (Sunflower) on Elk Avenue. We also really appreciated the off-street parking for our largish van. The cabin was clean and well furnished.

The only suggestion we have for improvement is to provide unscented facial tissues and unscented laundry detergent for lodgers who are sensitive to fragrances as we are.

We stayed for four days and had fun hiking and biking and dining and drinking good coffee.

Loved the location!

  • 4 of 5

The plumbing needed some attention and there were lights that needed new bulbs (we looked, but did not find any). But the cabin was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Better Than Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Emmons Cabin each of the past five summers, and we appreciate it more with each passing year. Its location is ideal for accessing the many incredible hikes nearby and for enjoying the simple joys of Crested Butte. Comfortable bed, too! Once again, a highlight of our year.

Leslie was a wonderful host who was very responsive to our needs. She even got back to us immediately after we requested to stay an extra night because we loved it so much. Cozy, clean and the neighbors were very friendly! We had a great time hiking, swimming and eating out at the restaurants that are just steps away. Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful home in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend, chocolate lab and myself finally visited the beautiful town of Crested Butte. We could not have asked for a better experience. The house was very clean, had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals, had a nice cozy fireplace, and a great back deck to relax on. Also, the bed was very comfortable, which is always a huge plus after a day full of mountain biking and hiking. The location is incredible. Just 1 block away from Elk Ave. where you can find all sorts of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops, etc. We plan on visiting again and if this home is available, we will request to book here again!
