Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Crested Butte - Quaint House on Elk Ave

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom House In The Historic Centre

Welcome to our lovely house on Elk Ave in the historic centre of Crested Butte dating back from 1890. The house is located at the quiet end of Elk Avenue opposite the book and coffee shop. It has a lovely grassy garden with mature trees, hammock and deck chairs to sit and watch the world go by. It has off street parking. BBQ. Many hiking and biking trails are a few minutes walk from the house. After a long day hiking or biking, visit one of the many great restaurants and bars only a minute walk away. The cinema, bakery, shuttle bus to the ski base are 2 minutes walk. One block from the Four Way Stop free shuttle bus stop makes getting to the mountain simple.

The house has original oak floors throughout. We purchased the house in spring 2014 and have replaced all the furniture, beds and mattresses. There is a king bed in the master bedroom and 2 twins that can be converted to a king in the second bedroom. There is a magnificent reclaimed teak day bed in the lounge which can be used as an additional twin bed.

The house has a flat screen TV, wifi and plenty of board games.

About Jane

My family and I first visited Crested Butte in 2006. We immediately fell in love with the area and have been coming every winter since. We have lived in the British Virgin Islands for the last 26 years so are used to living in a small community. We fell in love with the uniqueness of the town and the friendliness of the people. But is only took one visit in the summer to be totally hooked. As soon as this lovely house in the centre of the historic district came up for sale I knew I would be spending a lot more time in Crested Butte!

Jane purchased this house in 2014

Why Jane chose Southwestern Colorado

It's all about location. Being located on Elk Avenue, life is so easy. Stroll across the road in the morning to either Rumours or Camp 4 for a cappuccino and fresh baked pastry. Don't worry about driving in the evening after a night out at any one of the huge selection of great restaurants and bars. The atmosphere in town is something really special. The local farmers market is just at the end of the road, the Arts Festival, Mardi Gras parade, Big Air on Elk, 4th July Parade are all right there. The local bus stop to the mountain is 1/2 a block away. The cinema, 2 blocks away. Crested Butte is such a unique and friendly town that being right in the center makes being here all the more special. Many hiking trails are within a short walk of the house, free buses access many more trails. In the winter there are free buses to the ski slopes and many of the nordic trails start a few minutes walk from the house. Crested Butte is such a special town!

Cozy home in the most convenient location

  • 5 of 5

You simply cannot beat the location of this property. It's situated on Elk and is quite literally only a minute or two walk from all the eateries and places of libation Elk street has to offer. If there's any ding, it would be that there is no TV service offered outside of an HD antennae so you will only get the local channels. The owner has attached an HDMI/mini-DVI cable so one could hook up their laptop to play movies (probably more important if you have kids) or if you want to Netflix and chill.

The amenities of the house are more than adequate however the upstairs bathroom sink is quite small. The upstairs bedroom has a king bed and the bedroom on the first floor has two twins. The couch in the living room is more like a full so that could double as a bed if necessary.

All in all, we were quite happy here with both our kids and would recommend it strongly to anyone looking to stay in the heart of Crested Butte.

What a great house!! We spent a few days on the mountain and a few days in town. Loved both experiences. This house is perfect. Lovely shady yard and the house is so quiet. Comfortable beds, great linens, well equipped kitchen... such a cute house. What a great location! Coffee shop and book shop just across the road. Many hours spent in the hammock watching the world go by. Upper and Lower Loop, Green Lake hikes are all walking distance. We will be back!

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

The Elk Ave house was perfect in every way! We wanted a week of skiing and outdoor activities while still enjoying all that the town of Crested Butte has to offer. This home has the best location. We flew into Gunnison, took the shuttle to Crested Butte. We didn't miss having a car for the entire week. Hitting the slopes was hassle free as we were a 5 minute walk to the free ski area shuttle that runs every 15 minutes (and only a 10 minute drive). We were also in walking distance to the Nordic Center and other hiking and ski trails. But the best part for us was the convenience to all the many restaurants, shops and activities in CB. The night life in town has something for everyone at local bars and music venues. Though the home is in the heart of town, it is at the quiet end of Elk Ave. Elk Ave is quiet, clean, bright and airy, comfortable and cosy. Bathrooms have been nicely renovated. Furnishings are nice, beds are comfortable. Kitchen is well appointed for eating in. Jane is friendly, easy to work with and always available to answer any questions. Plenty of room for 2 couples or a family of 4-5. We can't wait to go back next winter. Would love to plan a CB summer trip as well. So happy to have found Elk Ave! Thank you Jane!
