Just wanted to say how nice the Whetstone and Teocalli cabins were. They were clean, comfortable, and quiet. Our family looked forward to the evening campfires for card-playing, conversation, and some-mores. We very much enjoyed our week's stay there in mid-July. The cabins were convenient to Gunnison (golf, shopping, and shooting range), Almont (river rafting), and Crested Butte (horsebacking riding, shopping, and ice cream at the Rocky Mt. Choc. Factory). And, yes, the wildflowers were still beautiful in bloom.

Stayed: July 2008

A friend and I stayed in the "Everest" cottage for two nights while snowboarding at Crested Butte. We were very impressed, very happy. Our expectation was an inexpensive, woodsy, near-nature place and we got that, but we got much more than we expected. Unlike many similar cabins I've stayed in, this one actually looks as good in person as it does in the pictures on its website (maybe better); there was Wi-Fi Internet access and free long-distance telephone service at the office (and I'm embarrassed to say I did get on the Internet once while there); there was a real shower and bath with plenty of hot water (great after snowboarding). Everything was clean, and even the towels were a pleasant surprise, "hotel quality" rather than "lodge quality." The owners were very friendly and left us entirely alone after we checked in. A possible downside for others is that the lodge is maybe fifteen minutes from downtown and twenty minutes from the ski area, but that was fine with us. Overall, it was a great experience -- we'll go back.

I have been to Crested Butte once and I'm planning another trip in January. I fell in love with the town last year. My husband and I stayed in the Pioneer Guest Cabins. They are one Cement Creek Road about 2 miles out of Crested Butte toward Gunnison. They are in the Gunnison Forest. Let me set the stage...You turn down this snow covered road and drive probably 2 miles back into the forest. The road has snow BUT it is cleared regularly. There was No problem driving. When you arrive at the cabins and get the key, the hosts are the best. A cute couple with a young child. The cabins were built in the 30's as a ski camp for Gunnison Forest. They are incredible. There is a gas wood stove for heat. A full bath and a double downstairs and a double in the loft. There is a kitchenette with a full stove and fridge. It is peaceful and absolutely the most beautiful place I have ever been. The furnishings are timber beds and quilts. There are no frilly furnishings. It is exactely as you think Colorado should be. We skied, snow mobiled, dog sledded, snow shoed..everything. We ate in town each night and then retired to our cabin in the woods. I can't wait until January to return. It is very reasonable and a dream come true. There is a website also.
