Perfect for us!

  • 4 of 5

One couple, our friend, and his teenage son found the Cozy Cottage tailor-made for our group. We had the main bedroom, our friend had the upstairs bedroom, and his son took the basement w its foldout couch. The cottage had every type of little item you would need, and the grocery store is only a short walk, as is town w plenty of great bars & restaurants. Your choice of close Mtn Exp stops to get up to the ski area. Maybe the biggest impression from the trip: the people in this town were incredibly friendly! Had a ball, even with tenuous snow conditions.

Well cared for. Thoughtfully furnished. Plenty of space for 4 people, even when 2 of them (my sister and my son) prefer not to share a room. Perfect for my group.

This was the prefect place in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful experience at Carolyn's cottage. We have stayed in Crested Butte many times and we know our way around town. This was our favorite place so far. It is centrally located to everything you need so if you didn't want to move your car, you wouldn't have to. However, we love exploring surrounding areas to CB and this house was perfect for that. We had a magical Christmas here. We arrived early because of a snow storm and Carolyn was gracious in working with us to make sure we were comfortable and at home. The house is cozy, we loved that part, just enough room for our family. It is very well stocked with everything you could need in the kitchen. We made Christmas dinner with everything we needed. The master is small but has everything you need. Very comfortable. And there is a great room upstairs that my little one loved. Very spacious with plenty of room for her. There is also a great bonus room downstairs so if you needed to spread out you could. The fireplace is so cozy and really heated the house well. You are just a couple of blocks from EVERYTHING so we walked everywhere even in the bitter cold - it was just that convenient. You are also a block from the bus stop that takes you up to the ski hill. Super easy. We will definitely come and stay again.

Super clean, cute and easy access to town

  • 5 of 5

Great experience here with our two kids (7 &9) and two grown-ups. Loved the easy access to restaurants, grocery and shuttle to the mountain to ski. Very clean and easy to get comfortable. Room in basement was great when we needed to be able to do conference calls and work.

Fabulous Place to Stay in CB!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this adorable, well-appointed, extremely clean and fabulously-decorated cottage, which was perfect for the two of us -- but also would be perfect for our next trip when we bring our two kids and their grandparents as well! Walkable to everything with responsive and friendly owners. Have nothing bad to say about this rental - would be thrilled to come back!
