Mitch purchased this house in 2003

Why Mitch chose Crested Butte

22 Elk Avenue is the last house on left as you drive up Crested Butte National Historic Distrct's main Street. It is the ultimate neighborhood in this town. Close to restaurants, shopping and the free bus shuttle. You can ride your mountain bike or cross country ski out your door and access miles of epic trails without ever touching pavement. I have no proof but knowing the area and having been the Chair of the Gunnison County Historic Preservation Commission for ten years I am convinced that this is where native americans set up their camps for thousands of years and european settlers followed their example to put their main Street. The superior micro climate is noticeable from even blocks away as you are protected from windier storm paths. Today's vacationer can enjoy being in the core of town and at the edge of it at the same time.

What makes this house unique

Crested Butte Mountasin Resort is one of the best ski mountains in the country. The extreme's are challenging and plentiful. The quality of slope grooming has risen to world class in recent years. The terrain parks and features (my son's winter habitat) are state of the art. Telemark skiing was reborn here in the 70's. I remember taking my old school lace up downhill ski boots down to the saddlemaker in Gunnison to have him sew on vibram soles that would fit into the three pin bindings on my long skinny tele skis. The equipment has come along way and some of the top Tele skiers in the world ski this mountain. Crested Butte was also the place where mountain biking started. I bought my first 15 speed mountain bike from a friend in 1980 it was built here in 1977 on a little john frame using motorcycle drum breaks. You could not walk into a store and buy a mountain bike at the time. I still use this bike as my townie today. The personality of the community is what makes this town, friendly, athletic, cutting edge and socially responsible.

relaxing home and great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here. This is a very relaxing home and is great for a group of people. The side yard is wonderful and it is remarkably quiet, especially for being on Elk street. The linens could use an update and ice cube trays would go a long way, but we will definitely be contacting Mitch again.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 4 adults over 4th of July weekend and it was just magical. You cannot ask for a better location when visiting Crested Butte. Right on the main street but at the end, so you have some peace and quiet. An adorable cafe just across the street, off street parking for 2 cars and even has a side yard and fire pit (which many other places do not.) we made a fire every night! Mitch lives right across the street and was instantly available for anything we needed. Will definitely be coming back!

Four couples stayed a week in the End of Elk House the week of October 8 - 15th and had a wonderful time. The house is close to downtown and easy walk from all the businesses. My only complaint was that one bedroom, the one with a full bed, had only a place to hang clothes and no dresser to put you clothing in. I thought a short dresser could have been placed under the hanging bar and it would have been much more user friendly. Overall though, we enjoyed the house and I would personally stay there again.

Can't beat the location!!! BUT definitely lacking in expected amenities like toilet paper, soap, etc

  • 4 of 5

End of Elk was fantastic overall experience for us. We were a group of 9 and one newborn that was in town for a wedding, and we all fit very comfortably in the home. It was a cant-beat location right at the end of the main strip, but not so close that it was noisy at night. The outdoor space was great to gather in as well. The trailhead for the woods walk is just up the hill, and there are a ton of good places to eat nearby. Parking is very easy as well, but beware of the art festivals and farmers markets on Sundays in the summertime, and plowing times in the winter. Mitch was helpful in that he popped over on Saturday to remind us about the art festival and to move our cars if we planned on leaving in the morning.

Our biggest gripe was that most of us came in from out of state, and therefore didn't travel with shampoo and whatnot. Maybe I didn't look closely enough on the rental details, but I would expect toilet paper, soap, and shampoo to be included for each bathroom. All other vrbo properties I've stayed in have provided those things. When we arrived, there was none of these things (not even toilet paper).
