We will always return to the Purple Mountain Lodge. Chris makes you feel at home and boy or boy can he cook.

Not only is this a gorgeous and comfortable B&B in a great location, but Chris is also a thoughtful and welcoming host, an excellent conversationalist, a fantastic cook (who had no trouble with our special no meat/no wheat diet needs), an experienced hiker and biker who makes knowledgable suggestions for outdoor adventure, and an enthusiastic guide to Crested Butte. Best of all? He and the ever-wagging Makayla welcomed our dog, too, so we could all enjoy Colorado together. The house itself is lovely, well-decorated and nicely kept with an inviting vibe. Like staying with a cool, laid-back friend who also happens to be a dynamite chef. And likes large dogs.

My husband and I spent two days recently at the Purple Mountain Lodge B&B while mtn biking in the area. Loved the relaxing atmosphere and very homey feeling of the B&B. Being able to sleep with the windows wide open and having the cool mountain air lull you to sleep was wonderful.

Chris Haver the owner/proprietor was very helpful with information on biking routes and local establishments to dine at in town. Very "green" in being able to walk everywhere from the B&B to the town area.

Chris is an excellent cook and his breakfast selections were impeccable! Especially enjoyed his blue cornmeal blueberry pancakes. Yummy, yummy. The parfait glasses with fresh fruit and yogurt were very nice touches.

Those travellers that love dogs will become fast friends with Chris' trusty home companions Makayla and Zoe.

We had a wonderful time in Crested Butte and loved staying at the Purple Mountain Lodge! Chris was extremely helpful and the Inn was the perfect place to get away. We would recommend this spot to anyone.

Chris was a fantastic host - the breakfasts he prepared were wonderful - frittatas, eggs florentine, banana-nut waffles! The Purple Mountain Lodge is conveniently located within walking distance of all the great restaurants and shops in Crested Butte. We parked the car and walked everywhere. We will definitely return.

We loved the Lodge and Crested Butte. Chris was an excellent host, advisor and chef. Breakfasts were great. Chris gave excellent guidance on where to hike and how to get there. He also gave great and accurate recommendations on restaurants in town. Crested Butte is an incredibly beautiful place. The hikes and wild flowers were inspiring, beautiful views everywhere we looked. We also loved being able to bring our dogs on the trip. Chris allows dogs over 30 pounds. We will definitely be going back.

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.
