If you’ve never been to our beautiful area, here are a few details to help you decide which location will work best for your vacation:
Town of Crested Butte
Crested Butte is the site of an old mining town. It was established in 1881 as a gold mining base. The town is home to approximately 2,000 full-time residents, and there is a certain magic in the scale and style of the old town business district. It is undoubtedly the center of activity for the area. On Elk Avenue (the main street) there is a surprising array of fine and casual restaurants, cocktail establishments, art galleries, and shops. Crested Butte is a very pedestrian-friendly town, and many of the locals and visitors find that bicycles are the most enjoyable mode of transportation. For more information on the town, visit the Town of Crested Butte website. For additional information on the above activities, visit travelcrestedbutte.com or the Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce site.
Mt. Crested Butte
The town of Mt. Crested Butte is a mere two miles up the hill from Crested Butte and is home of the Crested Butte Ski Resort. It is also a great home-base if you plan to explore the National Forest surroundings. Many of the properties we offer are situated right on the slopes of the ski mountain. The base area of the ski resort and town offer restaurants, shopping, and entertainment throughout the year. For the most part, the homes on the mountain are a little larger in scale than in Crested Butte. There are also many condominium options available within close proximity of the ski area. Information on Mt. Crested Butte is also available at travelcrestedbutte.com or the Chamber of Commerce site. An additional source for detailed area information is available on the Town of Mt. Crested Butte website.
The Club at Crested Butte
Located just a little more than one mile south of Crested Butte, The Club at Crested Butte is a golf resort community. During warmer months, the links are just outside your door. There is also a Club House with amenities, and is a quick drive or bike ride to town. Any time of the year, we believe you will find the setting breathtakingly beautiful.
