“Quaint, cozy and consistent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Ahhh Pioneer Guest Cabins!!! I have such fond memories associated with this place. You arrive and immediately disconnect and immerse yourself in this simpler, quieter way of life. From snowshoeing and XC skiing to homemade dinners and warm coffee in the morning, it truly provides a get away that really makes you feel like you got away. 2 days there makes you feel like you've been gone for 2 weeks. Leah is a gem and we always feel welcome with open arms. I highly recommend Pioneer Guest Cabins.

The Pioneer Guest Cabins are nestled in the national forest...x-c skiing and snow shoe trails are right out the front door. What a find! The area has a remote feeling but you are only 10 minutes from Crested Butte with great restaurants. The beds were very comfortable and the decor charming. We loved our stay.

Room Tip: The Homestead had a separate bedroom rather than a loft which we liked.

I had wanted a vacation with a cabin in the mountains my whole life. My wife found what I wanted and more. The Pioneer Guest Cabins are rustic yet very cozy. This was much more than I expected. The drive there (from Texas) was amazing and the location of the cabins, perfect. Just outside of town but still in the tranquil nature. The towns people of Crested Butte were wonderful and the Town its self is historic and great to visit. I highly recommend staying at the Pioneer Guest Cabins and I plan on being back yearly to hit my reset button from the busy world. Just want anyone who reads this to know that Ketta (Matt and Leah’s Dog) is Awesome and loves his treats in the morning…

Room Tip: Any cabin you choose will be the perfict one.

Our stay at the cabin was delightful! We live in CB but wanted a mountain getaway and the Pioneer Guest cabins were perfect, nearby yet we felt miles away.The cabin was warm, cozy, comfortable, efficient kitchen, very clean, good shower and the Q bed was super comfortable! We shared the cabin with another couple and we had enough space to host a birthday dinner gathering with 10 guests!
We went for a wonderful ski tour out the front door and a snowshoe trek the following day.
Thanks much to Leah and Matt for the warm welcome, we'll be back!!

My husband, 6 month old son and dog all stayed at the Pioneer Guest Cabins this past weekend and absolutely loved every minute of it! We stayed in the Sunshine cabin and when we arrived that night around 8 it was beautifully lit and the stove made the entire place very cozy. In fact, we couldn't believe how warm they were able to get the cabin in the middle of winter! Everything was very clean and the kitchen well stocked in order to make meals there which we did. In fact, we didnt leave the cabin all weekend (by choice) except to walk a short distance to a very private snowshoe/cross country ski trail. The trail was so serene and peaceful and I believe the only people that use it are other guests at the cabins, so needless to say we had it mostly to ourselves!
It was so great getting away from the stresses of everyday life and just escaping for the weekend. We cannot wait to go back and will be making it a yearly family tradition. If you are looking for the ideal "Colorado cabin in the woods" place to stay, this is your spot!

This a picture perfect mountain cabin resort! Well maintained and managed, it offers the perfect get away from cell phones, TV and every day noise while bringing nature to your front door step. Each cabin is different sleeping 4 to 6 guests. All cabins are fully furnished and appointed to a picture perfect wood cabin finish.

My husband, sister-in-law, and I (and my Great Dane) traveled to Crested Butte for New Year's Eve. We spent our first night in the Cottonwood cabin and it was perfect -- cozy, clean, warm, and with enough utensils in the kitchen to cook a proper NYE dinner. Matt and Leah were gracious hosts and check-in was quick and easy. We love that they allow dogs at the cabins, with the one rule that they aren't allowed on the furniture (not a problem for us because we have a senior pup who can't jump on furniture anyway). The woods around the cabins are beautiful and utterly serene, and the property lies at the end of a long, snowy road. The main "village" of Crested Butte is only a short drive away, but Pioneer Guest Cabins feels pleasantly removed from the hustle-and-bustle of the ski area. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short due to an emergency back home. We were supposed to spend two more nights in the Sunshine cabin. I had just moved our things into that cabin when we discovered that we had to leave, but I loved it even more than the Cottonwood cabin. It was spacious -- plenty of room for four people -- with a decent amount of counterspace in the kitchen and a nice little dining table. We were really upset that we had to cut our stay short, but Matt and Leah were incredibly kind and understanding and we will definitely be returning to PGC to re-do our trip as soon as possible.
