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.

The space

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

My girlfriend and I had an amazing time staying with Kate. Her home is just a couple blocks from downtown Crested Butte and right across the street from a bus stop, making it extremely easy to get to the mountain. Kate is a gracious, kind, and hospitable host who made us feel more like her friends than her guests. We will definitely be staying with her in the future.

It is really helpful staying in Crested Butte with Kate because she is a longtime local. Conveniently located right across the street from the bus stop made going to the ski hill easy as could be. Centrally located downtown we could also walk to all of the restaurants and bars. Shackleton the explorer cat was always home to greet us and we had a wonderful time getting to know Kate. We were also very comfortable in the king size bed. Thanks!!!

Kate is amazing! This was the best Airbnb experience my girlfriend and I have ever had. Kate is one of those people that makes you feel very welcome into her home and she creates an environment that immediately makes you feel comfortable. Her house is beautiful with a lot of character and her cat Shackleton (I call him Shackles) is awesome! The location couldn't be better, it is two blocks from Main street, one block from the Crested Butte Nordic Center, and literally right across the street from a bus stop where you can catch the free Mountain Express bus up to the Crested Butte ski area. Kate became a friend of ours by the end of our stay and we are excited to stay at her place again soon!

Kate rocks so hard she even took time away from a XC skiing race AND her birthday to make sure we were situated. Perfect and comfortable place right in town. She joined us for breakfast at a local spot next day to tell us all about Crested Butte. Loved it. We'll be back!

Kate's place was very cozy and we felt so welcomed from the get-go. The room we stayed in was very warm and the bed was so comfortable. We were only there for two nights, but we would come back and stay there again if we get the chance. The free public bus stops across the street and takes you around town and up to the resort. We talked to Kate and Ray about our dinner and drinking plans, and they were very helpful with locals feedback. The house has wonderful character and everything was clean and tidy. To be honest it felt like staying at a long time friends home. Thanks again to Kate, Ray, and Mr. Shack

Kate User ProfileKate is a superhost.

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.
