“Luxury with homey attitude”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Our first visit to beautiful Crested Butte was made better by our one night stay at The Ruby. We came to explore and struck gold. The rooms were unique and comfortable and every amenity was provided. Simple touches like access to a fridge with water, beer and wine plus a snack area helped to give a homelike feel. Andrea and Chris are great, friendly people who know how to care for guests and their breakfast was a healthy, delicious way to start our day of hiking. Winter or summer, this is a great place to stay.

Our four night stay at The Ruby of Crested Butte was great. The staff did everything they could to make our visit to their inn, and to Crested Butte, a real pleasure. Breakfasts were delicious. We hated to leave and hope to be back again in the future. We highly recommend The Ruby to everyone!

After a long day cycling, we arrived at the Ruby exhausted and rather covered in mud. Andrea greeted me at the door, and it became immediately clear we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. She took excellent care of us, offering everything from a bike wash to bagging up and cleaning our bike gear, fresh cookies, pineapple water, dinner recommendation, basically anything we needed. And after we got settled, and had a refreshing nights sleep, we were treated to an absolutely delicious and filling breakfast, while chatting with Chris and getting ideas for the day. In fact, we were lucky enough that there was a vacancy there for an extra day, so we extended our stay, it was to good to leave. If you go to CB, stay at The Ruby.

Between the mixture of Crested Butte charm and coziness of the Ruby Bed & Breakfast, my wife and I had a lovely weekend stay. The rooms were clean and welcoming and the on-the-house craft beers was a nice evening treat. Those combined with the excellent food, service and conversation made the it top-notch. Thanks Andrea, Chris and Emily!

I've stayed at the Ruby many times over the last 9 years - it is by far my favorite place to stay when I'm in Crested Butte for work. I work for a federal agency and was so thrilled to find out that the Ruby offers discounts to government employees! Chris and Andrea are such wonderfully friendly hosts and make you feel like part of the family. The accommodations are plush and extremely comfortable, and the free use of the towny bikes makes you feel like you are one of the locals. Once you've had a taste of their gourmet breakfasts, you won't ever want to leave! Don't stay anywhere else!!!!

Green Features: I work in the environmental field and haven't stayed in a hotel or B&B that takes going green as seriously as The Ruby! They have incorporated environmental awareness and stewardship into almost every aspect of their business without compromising quality, taste, cleanliness, and ambiance.

We fell in love with Crested Butte and the Ruby had so much to do with this. The accommodations are comfortable and immaculate and the food delicious but the owners and staff are the real bonus. They do everything in their power to make you feel like a guest in their home and they go above and beyond to assist and help with anything and everything. They greet you with homemade cookies and have a nice supply of good wine, good beer, water and soft drinks available for your convenience. Everything is so lovely and thoughtful...fresh roses everyday. wine glasses in the room, lush towels and linens, ski boot warming machine and a great array of books, movies, and games. Incredible attention to detail. My only suggestion would be a table of some sort in each bathroom for cosmetic bags. That is so minor and not a criticism. This place is a keeper and we will return to the Ruby every time we visit Crested Butte which thanks to them will be much more often!

Room Tip: The upstairs room is private but near the Kitchen and morning activity. Still. we likes the extra s...

CB experienced upwards of 40" of snow during our 4 day stay. Chris and the staff at The Ruby provided a great base from which to explore the valley and then return to for relaxing and recharging. This was our 4th stay at The Ruby and every time has been the same; gourmet breakfasts and great conversation to start the day, a relaxing hot tub after a day of mountain activity, a super town location that is quiet but close enough to walk everywhere and a comfy room to dream about the day that was. The staff at The Ruby is knowledgeable of the community and will provide accurate information on the attractions and local restaurants. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in CB.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great!
