Warm & cozy five bedroom/three bath house on Elk Ave. in the heart of the vibrant CB community. Of the three bedrooms on the second floor, two are for Airbnb guests. There is one shared bath and a lounge area with a coffee/tea bar and mini fridge for Airbnb use. It is a social house, I have lived in town for almost forty years, and we often invite guests to join in for a social event or a cup of coffee. No breakfast or kitchen included.

$100 per night for 1 person // $125 for 2

The space
This historic Crested Butte home was once the post office in the mining town of Irwin (7 miles away). Subject to boom and bust, Irwin is said to have held ten thousand people in the 1880's before turning into a ghost town when the mines closed. I believe our house was pulled by a mule team on logs to the town of CB sometime in the 1920's. It has been remodeled many times and is a comfortable basecamp for a CB adventure.

This listing is for Room 1. If there aren't available dates for this room, check out our other listing for Room 2! https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/16960631?s=67&shared_item_type=1&virality_entry_point=1&sharer_id=48578345

Guest access
Guests can come and go as they please, but try to keep it quiet after 10pm (we will too). Parking can be tricky, especially in winter. The signs need to be read carefully! Park on our side of the street on even dates and the opposite side of the street on odd dates. If you need help, just ask!

Other things to note
Sometimes markets, festivals or art events are held on the street in front of the house- access by vehicle may be temporarily restricted.

The kitchen is not included in this listing, but if you have a special request just ask!
