About this listing
Crested Butte is BEAUTIFUL & Charming...and I get to live smack dab in the middle of it. Downtown is filled w color, historical structures and a very cool community of long term residents mixed w newcomers . (I fall in there as a 'tweener" having been here for only 23 years. )You can roll in and park off street at my place, or fly in and have no need for a car while getting around town and the Mt Crested Butte. If you're up for exploring you can rent a jeep or a car to head over the pass.
Open, sunlit, and cozy, this home is available for solo travelers or a small family. Please find relaxing escapism in my 1880's old world home located in the middle of Crested Butte's historical downtown. My house sits only 2 blocks off of our main Street. Character abounds not only in this authentic and charming structure , but within it's 2 inhabitants , Kate ( me..a human & long term local & Shackelton the CAT!! , who will be your hosts during your stay. My home is not remodeled and has it's un remodeled qualities and is my wee castle! ~ :)
Whether winter or summer, there is always plenty to do here in the mountains ~ I would revel in connecting you to the beautiful place I live and immersing you into local culture while introducing you to the local color.
"The King's Quarters" with a king sized bed, is the room where you'll be staying. It is Upstairs , which are steep but not long. ( see my note about my stairs w ***'s below) this room is spacious and relaxing. I hear the bed is so comfortable that it is sometimes hard to exit the sheets! There are also a couple of cool and comfortable surfaces upon which to lay your head downstairs in the main room. (THE DAY BED AND THE DOOR "Blue ROOM " WITH THE BLUE LIGHTS.***
There is only one bathroom , downstairs, with a tub / shower , which is lovely and light, so we'll be sharing that space, along with the main room and kitchen. (The Bedrooms are upstairs)
We have WIFI and there is a large TV used for only movies, so the lack of modern amenities leaves time for outdoor exploration, banter and reading~
My home is only steps away from the main street and the bus stop is across the street, making a loop to the mountain and around town quite easy. Off street, free parking , is on my property , which if snow cooperates, In winter...has a snow cave..another story entirely, which a couple of the photos shown.
Light breakfast upon request~ There is always coffee, tea, and half & half.
If the dates you're interested in are not available, please write me a note anyway, as sometimes people have a change of plans, or I can point you to friends who are also now renting rooms via Airbnb.
****One last detail that is important to mention is my steep stairs. Though the steps are not narrow, they are not suited for folks with injuries or disabilities. *****
NOTE~ Please no pets ( Shackelton will torture the hardiest of dogs ) and no smoking inside the house.
I look forward to meeting you and contributing to a most memorable visit to Crested Butte! Kate
When you stay at my place, the room and the main living area is all yours! I can be scarce or present, depending on what you prefer.
Interaction with guests
We can hang out or I
can almost disappear.
Other things to note
I often have a bottle of wine or a 6 pack waiting for incoming guests.
I request that everyone in the house respectfully keep noise at a minimum, in the event that anyone needs to sleep. I've stayed in an Amsterdam hostel with 16 snoring people, so I can sleep through most anything~ within reason :)
As there is only one bathroom, please be quick, or if you need time in the bath or with the Sunday times , please ask others if they have need of the facilities first.
I'll know more as things are revealed !!

Having grown up the youngest of 4 and having lived with room mates my entire adult life, I have maintained a solidly flexible nature, which may have been there to begin with? I enjoy surrounding myself with people , animals, and the outdoors. I love almost any dog who crosses my path and fancy myself a bit of a Dr Doolittle.The creative thread runs rampant in these veins which becomes quite evident in my art.
If I had to ask friends to write this piece,(which I'm doing right NOW) I suppose they'd say I am easy going and entertaining.
I try to be helpful and to connect people with people and with what they seek.
