“Changed my feelings about Lawyers . . .”
Reviewed 17 October 2007

Chris is an amazing breakfast cook, for a Lawyer. Seriously, he's simply an awesome breakfast cook. Andrea makes a pretty good latte (and I think she's the brains of the operation). For the price of a mid-range hotel in any city, my wife and I were treated to the best B&B we've stayed at in 24 years of marriage. Great food, great converstation, super comfortable, fabulous surroundings. And really, really professional hosts. These folks have got it down. Thanks Chris and Andrea!

We spent half of our honeymoon at the Ruby last week and were absolutely thrilled with the service and accomodations. Chris and Andrea (the managers) went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible in a nonintrussive yet helpful manner. All of their recommendations for activities/food, etc. were spot on. The rooms were impeccable and very comfortable and breakfast was a feast. Go if you can.

I just came back from my vacation in Colorado and want to go back and stay at The Ruby at Crested Butte. It was FABULOUS! The breakfast every morning was like sitting at home eating with family and having mom cook for you....that is if your mom is an excellent cook!!!! The rooms are Beautiful and Clean. And the owners are the nicest people you would ever want to meet.

If you want to stay at a Bed and Breakfast .....stay there for sure!!!

I just returned from a wonderful stay (6/20-22/07) at the Ruby. While it was a mear two nights (I'll stay much longer next time !!), my experience will last in memories for a lifetime. This B&B in the small town of Crested Butte, CO felt more like a five star hotel in New York City. Luxurious bedding/decor made me feel like a pampered princess. The owners/hosts are down to earth and could not be more welcoming/accomodating. The gourmet breakfasts (including home made cinnamon rolls) were/are nothing short of excellent. Close to the town's historic center as well as hiking/biking/skiing, I could not have asked/hoped for anything more during my stay at the Ruby. Thanks Andrea and Chris !!!!!!!

What a lovely experience! My husband and I stayed at this tastefully decorated B & B for 3 nights August 30 thru Sept 2. Upon arrival we were greeted by Andrea (Chris was in the kitchen baking the goods for the morning breakfast it smelled delicious!!!) She took great care of us and helped us get situated in our room. That night we slept with our window open and listened to the mountain breezes blowing through the aspen trees outside our window. In the morning we had a perfect view of Crested Butte Mountain from bed. The next two days we were treated like royality by Chris and Andrea. Love this couple. The breakfast and service were terrific.

I cannot think of another place I've stayed that is as lovely and comfortable as the Ruby.
