Great location near last bus stop before going up the mountain

  • 3 of 5

Great location for using bus stop and near great cafe, but very poor quality beds, linens, pillows, and toilet tissue! The second unit of a duplex with a very tiny porch so if other tenets have anything (skis, boards, bags, coolers all there when we arrived), it's hard to get to your door with bags and kids. Also, we organized early drop off of groceries and bags since we arrived to town around lunch but check in isn't until 4pm. This was not communicated to all office staff and we were locked out in cold for nearly an hour before anyone returned our call and gave us a code to get in. Overall an okay listing if you have to have a hot tub in town and are traveling with kids who will love the loft.

Good location and size, but hot tub was gross!

  • 4 of 5

I would recommend it again, but there's a few tiffs I had. They didn't provide enough toilet paper for 9 people for 3 nights. The upstairs bathroom only had one tiny bar of soap, so we went and bought more along with toilet paper. The wifi only worked our first night, and we could not find the router. The other side of the duplex was looking for it as well, and couldn't find it. Then there was the hot tub... It was so gross when we got there. It was full of green slime and smelled. I think the other side of the duplex complained, and they had someone come put chemicals in. Knowing the water didn't get replaced there was no way we were going in there!!

Beds were really comfortable. We made a couple dinner dishes/breakfasts, and there was plenty of cooking supplies available. Considering it was a duplex it was really quiet, plenty of parking, great location for the bus stop (last stop up and first stop back), and easy walk over to Elk Ave.

Cozy mountain house

This place was just what we were looking for on our family vacation. Close walk to town and short drive to the ski hill.

Perfect getaway for our family

  • 5 of 5

The duplex was perfect for a quick ski getaway for our family. The beds were very comfortable, which is huge when you are tired from skiing all day. It is close to everything. It was well equipped and we very much enjoyed our visit.

Great place for family & friends to gather and explore Crested Butte

  • 5 of 5

Chestnut Cottege is in a great location, and can accomodate up to 8 people. There are three very nice bedrooms, plus the loft, which requires climbing a steep ladder, so is OK for the young & fit. Very nicely equipped and decorated. Hottub and patio area in back is fantastic. Everything in the town of Crested Butte is accessible with a short walk. A bus can take you up the mountain. We enjoyed it!
