The Ruby of Crested Butte - A Luxury B&B
Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeadersGold level
Reviewed 27 February 2009

We had been wanting to visit Crested Butte to ski, but wanted a change from the typical mountain resort hotel. The Ruby was the perfect answer for our early Valentine's Day getaway. We found it to be immaculate and very convenient to the town (with a shuttle to the mountain right around the corner). Chris and Andrea are the BEST hosts. Their attention to detail is evident at every turn- from the ski boot dryers in the foyer, to the perfectly appointed rooms with everything down to the wine glasses and cork screw, and especially fresh chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon. Breakfast was fantastic, as was relaxing in the hot tub after a long day of skiing and hiking the mountain. We only stayed one night, but it was such a great time it felt like a week. We can't wait visit again very soon!

One of the best B&B 's that we have stayed at. The hosts Andrea and Chris were so hospitable and welcoming. The breakfasts were amazing, we didn't eat lunch on the mountain because the choices for breakfast were supurb.Their coffee was excellent, indiviually brewed. We didn't have a car so their location was great.The location was one block to Elk Street where all the restaurants and shops are and the bus stop for the ski shuttle was very close to the B&B. The decor was very nice and we had just a great experience there.

Andrea and Chris are working extremely hard at "walking the talk" and it shows. Every detail has been well thought out so as to address comfort, style and environmental sustainability.

If "green" is not your thing, then that is no problem. It is not in your face and the quality and comfort do not suffer as a result. In my opinion they are only enhanced. Also, it is in a great location to walk to town or take the shuttle up the hill to the ski mountain.

Great place, great food and a great, fun, young couple running a bed and breakfast. This is refreshing compared to the alternative and stereo "inn keepers" one normally associates with a bed and breakfast.

It's a wonderful thing to spend the night only a few blocks away from home and to feel like you're on vacation. We live in Crested Butte but wanted to stay someplace special to celebrate a birthday. We felt completely pampered and relaxed from the moment we arrived and found The Ruby to be the ideal choice. Chris and Andrea are remarkably warm and welcoming hosts and their love of what they do is evident in all the details that make The Ruby the incredible destination that it is. When we entered our luxurious king suite, we were surprised by a gift of chilled champagne and giant chocolate-dipped strawberries. The bed was ridulously cozy with layers of silky linens and we awoke to the tempting scent of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. Stepping onto the heated floors and getting into the oversized robes was a treat and made it a little easier to leave the heavenly bed. We had a leisurely breakfast and spent a while talking to the amiable owners over a generous plate of fluffy eggs, perfect bacon, and petite banana waffles. There aren't enough adjectives to describe how excellent our stay was and we will recommend The Ruby to anyone looking for a truly personalized experience. You'll feel right at home!

My husband and I were looking for the perfect place to have our fist overnight away from our new baby boy...We wanted a friendly, but private place that was different from a hotel. We found it all at the Ruby!

The owners are great - they put their hearts into the place. It is clean, nicely decorated, and the extras (i.e. cookies in the afternoon, good bathroom products, excellent breakfast) were well thought out.

We have told all of our friends about this place - you shouldn't hesitate to stay there!

The Ruby of Crested Butte is wonderful! From the kind and knowledgeable owners, to it's location in the heart of town, and it's luxurious cozy charm, there is not one thing I could think of to change!

Not only were my husband and I made to feel right at home, our 2 dogs were welcomed with special dog beds, treats, and bowls in our room. Our pups were ready to move in permanently!

The Ruby makes all efforts to be environmentally green, is quiet and peaceful, and the afternoon cookies, and breakfasts are amazing! Great coffee too!

It is very easy to walk into town, or to catch the shuttle to get to the ski area. And, if you don't want to leave the B&B, it's a great relaxing environment to read, relax, or hot tub.

We will definitely be back!

This was our third visit to The Ruby of Crested Butte. We have had great experiences each time (Oct 2007, May 2008, Dec 2008).

From arrival to departure, the innkeepers (Chris & Andrea Greene) work to ensure a relaxing and comfortable stay. Rooms and common areas allow for cozy relaxation or getting to know other guests.

Come hungry for breakfasts. The food is absolutely fantastic, and we enjoyed the time to chat with the other guests and the innkeepers. In addition to breakfast, there were home-baked cookies to greet us every afternoon and a wine and cheese tasting with local Colorado wines on Saturday evening.

Be sure to bring your dog. The Ruby caters to pets providing a comfy blanket, dog bowls, and a pet friendly environment. Plus the innkeepers helped us arrange for our lab to spend the day at Oh Be Dogful doggy day camp while we skied the mountain. (I think our dog had as much fun as we did!)

Chris and Andrea provide excellent advice about the area, restaurants, events, etc. and will make arrangements for everything from dinner to massages to dog sitting so you have time to enjoy your vacation.

Crested Butte itself is a wonderful town with a great atmosphere, fantastic restaurants, good skiing and hiking. The Ruby is a great home away from home to explore this beautiful area of Colorado.
