Great place! We stayed 4 nights. The owner/manager Chris was excellent. Very helpful, nice guy. Great cook! Breakfasts were wonderful. The location is just 2 blocks or so from the bus stop to head up to the mountain for skiing/snowboarding. Just passed the bus stop is the downtown Elk Street to restaurants and shopping. This was great. We parked our car the day we got there started it the day we left.

Chris offers spa services and the hot tub on the deck was amazing as well.

Would definitely stay again. We had the largest room, so the price was a bit steep, but as expected for a B&B. Worth the extra cost. I was happy to see my bed made every evening we came home. That was nice.

Firstly, Crested Butte is wonderful. Unpretentious but also outstanding. We found great food, great drinks and great people. Purple Mountain was no exception. The room was exactly what we wanted. Chris is a gracious host and a better than average breakfast chef and a good home brewer too (he also loves to share). We also highly recommend the day spa. We got couples massages and loved every minute.

An excellent place to stay in Crested Butte. The rooms were very nice, Chris made very tasty/filling breakfasts before our ski days, and his recommendations for dining and night life were perfect. I've stayed there 3 years in a row during ski season and never had a complaint.

We just returned from spending Christmas week here...........it was a dream come true. The inn is charming and oh so welcoming! It smowed on and off the whole time we were there, our room had a wonderful view of Mt Crested Butte, BEAUTIFUL! Both Chris and his breakfasts were amazing............he is the perfect host, nonintrusive but always there to help w activities or dinner arrangements, etc. We could and did walk to everything in town and the stop for the mountain bus.............no car needed! YEAYYYY! Each morning started out with a hot gourmet breakfast. You WILL get spoiled! This is a beautiful little town that development has not ruined...........I hope this will be my Christmas tradition forever now! I am homesick to return already!

I can't imagine anyplace nicer to stay in Crested Butte than the Purple Mountain Lodge. Lovely rooms, mountain views, a fire going in the beautiful stone fireplace in the sitting area, and a gracious and thoughtful host: Chris made the most wonderful breakfasts, shared insights into the town, and made us feel completely at home. Even on a very cold day in December, Purple Mountain is warm and wonderful!

You cannot go wrong with this place. Chris is welcoming and professional. The breakfast was hearty and delicious every morning. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. From the hot chocolate and tea bar to the mini fridge, wine glasses, snacks and microwave upstairs... This place has it all! We will be back!

Chris was an amzing host and an amzing cook, we had a wonderful experience. Though we order one suite they upgraded us to a larger room at no charge. Which all the rooms have there own bathroom. It is a very cozy and relaxing B&B that is close to downtown CB
