There are many perks to staying in a bed and breakfast. You’ll feel like you’re at home. Your host will cook and serve your breakfast in the morning. If you need suggestions about sights or activities, they’ll give you the scoop. After all, they live here too and probably have done everything you want to do. My first stay in Crested Butte was at a B&B. The hospitality, food, and comfort I experienced was one of the reasons I kept returning. So if you’re on the fence or just want to see what’s available, here are your Crested Butte bed and breakfast options:
Purple Mountain B&B
Features: Hot tub • Spa • Fireplace • Townie bikes • WiFi • Netflix • Large-dog friendly
Although it’s named after a local Elk Mountain Range peak, this house is also painted purple and can’t be missed strolling down Gothic Ave. White picket fences and aspen trees invite you into this cozy establishment, to be greeted by a warm fireplace and fresh baked treats in the kitchen. After a restful sleep in one of five comfortable bedrooms, wake to the smell of fresh-brewed Camp 4 Coffee and the aroma of the morning’s home-cooked breakfast. Innkeeper and chef Chris Haver will serve up your delicious meal while offering tips on where the best trail or activity of the day should be.
Features: Hot tub • Townie Bikes • WiFi • 2 Fireplaces • Pet friendly
Located in town, this luxurious B&B is full of amenities and great guest experiences. The Ruby offers six guestrooms, two fireplaces, and warm furnishings. Enjoy a tasty organic country-style breakfast every morning and hot tub dips in the afternoon.
