About Sara Hammond

My husband and I are Colorado natives. We grew up appreciating the beauty of this wonderful state. We have lived and traveled all over the world, but always return "home". Our four grown boys love coming to Crested Butte as well! It's our favorite place on earth!

Why Sara Hammond chose Crested Butte

The first time I walked in this house, the view took my breath away. We love sitting on the two large decks listening to the sounds of the river, and watching the deer, beaver, fox and bald eagles.

What makes this house unique

This home has two separate living areas; the upstairs open kitchen/living/dining rooms with a soaring slate fireplace, and the downstairs game room with pool table, foosball and pinball. It's the perfect home for family gatherings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This was by far one of the most beautiful vacation homes our family has ever stayed in! The views were amazing, and the stars at night were breathtaking."

Beautiful house with magnificent views!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with an open floor plan and gorgeous views of the mountains, stream, and pastoral views! Perfect house for a family to rent with two decks, a game room, large family room with cathedral ceiling and a well appointed kitchen. Close to Crested Butte and the mountain. Our entire family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we plan to return! The owners were fantastic too!

Great house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 5 middle aged guys that grew up together in New York and do a pretty active "boys trip" every other year to different locations. This year we decided to visit Crested Butte. We absolutely loved this home and the Crested Butte area. The home was much nicer than we expected and the views were incredible. The kitchen, living room and dining room were very spacious and perfect for a large group. We spent a lot of time at the end of the day enjoying the views from the deck. We also really enjoyed the game room with the pool table, foosball table and pinball machine. The home is located about 10 minutes from downtown, so it's very easy to take advantage of all of the activities that Crested Butte has to offer. We went fishing at the Taylor Reservoir, horse back riding near Snodgrass Mountain, and mountain biking on a bunch of great single track trails. The free bus has bike racks to help shuttle your bikes from downtown Crested Butte up to the ski mountain where many of the single track downhill trails are located. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone that is considering visiting the Crested Butte area.

Relaxing, comfortable and plenty of space to spread out.

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything we read about it. The kitchen was well stocked. The living and dining areas gave us plenty of room to spread out.The bathrooms had lots of room and plenty of towels. The beds we're very comfortable. Bedrooms and gameroom are all downstairs. We all enjoyed the game room and decks. Sitting or grilling on the deck gave us an opportunity to enjoy the view. We saw a doe with twin fawns daily. Nice neighborhood, friendly neighbors. We enjoyed touring both Gunnison and Crested Butte main streets. We enjoyed the Satellite TV, video library and use of the wifi. Thanks Sara!

Beautiful River view Property

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family was impressed with this property from the minute we walked in. Not only is this home beautiful, walking out onto the decks are some of the most scenic views. This rental goes above and beyond from the other rentals we have stayed at. There are many added supplies that some rentals just do not offer. Everything from basic condiments, spices, etc. to bathroom supplies.Also, there are many books on the area displayed throughout the home, as well as a binder full of helpful brochures on places to eat, activities in the area. etc. My family had an outstanding time.

Beautiful home with awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home for our annual spring break trip to Crested Butte and could not have been happier with our stay. This house is perfect for families with older kids. Our kids loved spending time downstairs playing pool, foosball and pinball!

The kitchen is fully stocked which you don't always get when you rent a house. They have absolutely everything you will need! The beds were super comfy, the linens were high quality...everything was top notch!

Overall, this was one of the nicest houses we've ever rented. We will definitely rent it again when we come back to Crested Butte!

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Great location just a few miles from town. We enjoyed the beautiful views dining on the deck. The furnishings and decor were tasteful and comfortable. Everything was clean and ready for us upon arrival. The kitchen is fully stocked for meals at home. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the game room that included pool, foosball, and pinball. The neighborhood is very friendly. We enjoyed evening walks around the block and took the kids to the park to play one afternoon. The owners are very attentive and welcoming. Highly recommend!
