“Felt right at home - great place, great host, great food”
Reviewed 1 June 2009

We spent six nights here to do some early season mountain biking and had a hard time choosing between the B&B's in town, but we were completely satisfied with our choice to stay at PML and will definitely stay here next time we return.

The house and rooms are all comfy and clean. The living room is a great place to hang out before breakfast or after a day out. Chris takes a lot of care in personally planning and preparing breakfast each morning (which we're trying to re-create back home now). He'll also take the same care in helping you plan your day - skiing, biking, shopping, dining, or anything else you can name. Chris clearly loves this town and will make sure you enjoy CB as much as he does, particularly if you're an active traveler.

Heather is an extraordinary massage therapist and we highly recommend a session in the spa room in the house during your visit. Make your appointment early - it seems she also has a loyal local clientele and stays busy. Between Heather and twenty minutes in the hot tub out back, you have no excuse to not sleep soundly each night.

Finally, Makaylah is the nicest, mellowest dog I've ever met. But Chris wouldn't let us take her home with us - that was the only disappointing part of our stay.

Had a great time here. Innkeeper let us in on all the sweet powder stashes on the mountain. Rooms and amenities were cozy and the inn is a good value as an alternative to big loud on mountain resorts.

Our trip included Valentine's Day and what a treat to return from a long day of skiing to find chocolate covered strawberries and prosecco waiting for us! Owner/host Chris really puts the personal touch on everything, from substantial, delicious breakfasts to advice on skiing, restaurants, and anything you want to know about this great little town. We stayed here last summer and kept our vow to return, and were not disappointed. The breakfasts were so filling that we didn't need to buy lunch while skiing. We really looked forward to the new menu each morning. Yes, we'll go back again!

Like the title says, you won't be disappointed when you stay here. From the moment we walked in, Chris welcomed us and invited us to make ourselves feel like we were at home. Our room was nicely decorated with a Queen Bed, TV, our own bath and shower and a great balcony.
The breakfasts are outstanding and every night we went to bed wondering what they were going to serve the next day! There was coffee/tea/hot choc available all day. Chris has an extensive movie and DVD collection as well as many books and games available if you truely want to kick back and relax! He gave us great recommendations for dinner in town and he did not disappoint. Having lived in Crested Butte for around 6 years, he's eaten at pretty much every place in town!
The perfect end to the ski day was the hot tub that was located on the back deck! It was absolutely amazing!
I also recommend taking advantage of the SPA that is located on site. Heather does a great job as well!

Purple Mountain Lodge is one of our favorites! We head up there at least twice a year to enjoy the skiing! Chris is an amazing host - the B&B is beautiful, the rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast is DELICIOUS! It is always a very relaxing time at Purple Mountain Lodge... can't wait to get back there!

  • Liked — It was an awesome place to come back to and relax after a hard day of skiing - especially the hot tub!
  • Disliked — Nothing, really - everything was great!

Chris ran a friendly, conveniently located inn with great hospitality and breakfasts and a very low-key atmosphere. The rooms had wonderfully warm bedding although accommodations were otherwise quite modest. Location was fantastic, very walkable to the charming downtown of Crested Butte and to the ski shuttle bus. Breakfasts were gargantuan and Chris was extremely knowledgeable about the town, restaurants, mountain. Very reasonably priced lodging for a mountain resort as well.
