The Superintendent’s House provides a perfect base for one or two families to experience a delightful mountain getaway!
The Superintendent’s House epitomizes Crested Butte’s Victorian heritage, as acknowledged by its inclusion on the State of Colorado’s Register of Historic Places. Built in the 1880s, the house was relocated to Maroon Avenue in 1971 from its original location on Big Mine Hill. This large wood frame dwelling served as the residence for the Superintendent of Colorado Fuel & Iron Company’s mining and coke oven operations in the Crested Butte area from 1883 until 1952. The house’s design is representative of Colorado Fuel & Iron Superintendent housing in company towns throughout the state of Colorado. Built by the company, they were the most substantial and architecturally sophisticated residences in the community.
Today, the four bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom property artfully combines historic distinction and modern refinement. The home retains the original and beautifully reclaimed oak wood flooring; its distinctive features also include crown molding, wainscoting, interior doors with transoms, and a gas fireplace. The spacious first level is comprised of a comfortable open floor plan, which is hard to find in Crested Butte. The open kitchen enjoys a breakfast nook, a six-burner Viking range and hood, a GE Profile dishwasher, a stainless steel Amana refrigerator, plentiful cabinet space, and granite counters.
Natural light pours into the living spaces on both levels of the home, yet the mature Spruce trees and southern orientation on its parcel create a sense of privacy and seclusion. Upstairs, the stunning vaulted ceilings feature skylights in each bedroom and reclaimed wood beams in the larger master suite.
Located in the town center of Crested Butte, the house is within walking distance of the town’s popular restaurants, bars, and shops. Other amenities within walking distance include Rainbow Park (1/2 block away), the recreational walking/biking path, the Upper Loop trail system, and the Slate River. The Superintendent’s House also features a landscaped yard, a classic covered front porch, a backyard paver patio perfect for summer gatherings, and a detached 1-car garage in the rear.

I have skied CB off and on since 1996. After a 3-year run of coming up in the winter, I happened to come up over summer. SOLD! I was bitten by the Colorado bug. I worked with a great realtor, Channing Bourcher, for about a year looking for properties. I had excluded an in-town house because I wanted more of a view. Channing decided to show me "one of the most unique and historic homes" in CB. I really fell in love with the place and bought it.
My family and I live in Houston, Texas and try to get up to CB as often as possible. With two kids in college and one in high school, that is a challenge, but we manage. I actually grew up in Houston, Texas and really did not see much snow until I took a vacation at 28 years old to Colorado. Since that time I have skied Europe (Norway, Germany, Austria), Asia (Kazakhstan), Canada (Alberta and BC) and the usual suspects in the US.

CB is a unique ski town. It has a vibe all its own. When you are there, you start to understand that this place marches to its own drummer and has it own brand of cool - which is very, uh ...cool.
Once you understand the history of CB, and the history of the Superintendents House you can really appreciate the charm of the house. It is a well loved and storied property. The house will still be there long after I am gone. It is built like a tank.
I think that the floor plan really lends itself to entertaining. And with the deep driveway and garage in back, it can accommodate a good number of vehicles.
Number one benefit is the location of this home. It is in town but far enough away from the main drag (Elk St.) that you do not get the noise. It is also situated very close to Rainbow Park and the fitness trail that goes up to Mt. Crested Butte. 2 blocks to free ski/base shuttle!!!
The house is an older home with lots of character, but has been updated with modern convenience's. It's perfect for small kids because there is a park just steps away. It's also very close to downtown and all the wonderful shops.
We love Crested Butte and would definitely recommend this house.
This house was in a perfect location with park right across the street and easy walk/bike to all the restaurants in town. The house was very clean and had plenty of space for two families. There is a nice patio for outdoor eating and the kitchen had excellent appliances and sufficient utensils. The owner was very responsive and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay there again!
We loved our stay in his house. The house is comfortable as are all the beds. It is an easy walk to the shuttle or town. Its proximity to the park is another perk for families.
It's a great home for large families or two families traveling together.
We had a wonderful friends ski week in CB. We do an annual ski trip to a variety of places and this was by far the best house we've rented yet. Excellent, well stocked kitchen, making it easy to cook meals and super close to town to walk out.
It has a comfortable large living area that we hung out, played board games and enjoyed.
Greg was very responsive and accommodating!
I would love to go back and stay here again.
We loved staying at the Superintendent's House! Everything was perfect. The house was far more spacious than we expected (and far more spacious than any of the old Victorian's we stayed at in Crested Butte in the past). The rooms were all well appointed -- we didn't want for anything. Location was fantastic too! We were within two blocks of town, Rainbow Park and the ski shuttle. We would definitely stay there again! Loved it! Oh and Greg the owner was really grew to deal with too!
This home is a lovely property right in the heart of Crested Butte. It is convenient to the town as well as nearby skiing. The house is perfect for a family vacation--we comfortably slept eight people (five adults and three children). The home has all the charm of a historic property, but it has also been completely updated with modern conveniences, including the bathrooms which are gorgeous. The kitchen is also large and well-equipped. It is well suited for a simple dinner or even a complicated holiday meal. Everything was well maintained and the owner is very attentive. This home is very family friendly and offers something for everyone. You can't go wrong with this one!
Rainbow Park is two blocks. Great pavilion, soccer fields, pond, playground, rock climbing boulder and bike trail.
In winter, right off the Nordic Trail System!
