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. There are a couple of cool and comfortable surfaces upon which to lay your head downstairs in the main room. (THE DAY BED AND THE DOOR ROOM WITH THE BLUE LIGHTS.***
There is only one bathroom 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.
