My husband and I took a ski trip to Crested Butte for the first time. We are now planning our follow-up trips to CB since this is an incredible place for outdoors loving people.
Upon our arrival to The Ruby, we were greeted by Andrea and Chris who are a couple of the most welcoming people that I have ever met. We were given a quick tour of the inn and its shared spaces that included a downstairs lounge with a fireplace and movies, the hot tub and the upstairs area. A couple of the guest's dogs also greeted us. Being dog-lovers and missing our own, it was quite a welcome to be greeted by furry friends.
Our room was great; the bed was extremely comfortable and large. We both slept well throughout the week. The furniture was eclectic and proportionally fit the room; it is a relief to be able to move freely about a room. The bathroom had heated floors (yay!) and the bathroom's toiletries were earth friendly. :) We also liked the robes and put them to use when going to the hot tub after skiing.
Each morning, we looked forward to our breakfast created by Chris, Andrea and Cassie. The food was incredible! I have since tried to mimic the yogurt parfaits and egg dishes. None can compare to The Ruby. We also liked meeting the other guests before breakfast and discussing what everyone was planning or had done the day before. Whenever we needed a restaurant suggestion, Chris and Andrea had them and made reservations if requested.
When we rolled to the ski resort, we used the Inn's locker for our stuff. The locker included snacks, sunscreen and warmers; that was perfect! A local skier passed by us at the locker one day, looked in and said he knew where we were staying just by the contents. (By the way, the locals were very friendly everywhere we went.) Returning from a long day, there were warm cookies and ample types of tea or cocoa. We also liked roaming around the inn in our socks or slippers so much so that we now do it our house.
Since we've returned to our home state, we have stayed at a B&B on the coast and we found ourselves comparing it to The Ruby. Suffice it to say, we have been spoiled by The Ruby and look forward to a return trip. Thanks, Andrea and Chris!!
