The Ruby of Crested Butte - A Luxury B&B

Reviewed 15 June 2009

The Rudy combines the simplicity of mountian living with a subtle elegance. After a weekend the field and sleeping in a Holiday Inn, the comfort of the Ruby was awesome. My only regret is that my fiancee and our dogs where not there, she would have loved to take a complementary cruiser bike from the fleet for an ride around time. Chris and Andrea are fantastic hosts that provide a locallay renowned breakfast with great coffee and conversation.

I expect to see the owners of the Ruby opening a gourmet restaurant sometime in their future. The fabulous breakfast, made by Chris, the owner, was outstanding. Everything from the delicious egg cups, to the sticky buns are made with expertise and love. This breakfast will see you through the day and more! The rooms are comfortable and very well detailed, like a page out of house and garden. Everything is placed perfectly, for your comfort. Some b & b's seem restrictive where you don't feel comfortable enough to explore -- Books abound, dvd's to watch, comfortable couches, beautiful surroundings. The Ruby is warm and welcoming, like home away from home -- And isn't that exactly what we want in our travels?

We enjoyed the stay. The room was clean, plush and comfortable. The hosts were quite hospitable and made us feel at home. We enjoyed watching couple of movies in our rooms after sunset from a DVD collection they had. Big portions of freshly cooked mouth watering breakfast was to die for. Their restaurant recommendations for the evening were great! Two thumbs up!

We read a great reveiw about The Ruby in a magazine and decided to give it a shot. I am so glad we did. We both have very high expectations and our hosts and stay at The Ruby far exceeded them! We were greeted with a smile, given a tour and made to feel very welcome. The room was super and the bed very comfortable. They even accomodated our early schedule and provided a fantastic breakfast. Both our hosts were very knowledgable about Crested Butte and gave us great recommendations! Highly recommend!

My wife and I took a trip in mid-February for skiing and stayed at the Ruby. Right from the start the service offered was outstanding. We had a cancelling flight on the way out, had to reroute and ended up arriving about 7 hours later than expected on Valentines Day. Andrea and Chris waited for us, got us reservations at an excellent restaurant and drove us there!
This level of service was there throughout our stay. We felt like we were a part of the Ruby family even though we only stayed for 4 nights.
The location was an easy walk to the Crested Butte "downtown" area, and to shuttle bus stops to take you to the ski mountain.
The breakfasts that Chris created were fabulous.
Overall, this was one of the most fun trips we've had and the Ruby was a big part of that.

By far the Ruby is the best bed and breakfast my husband and I have ever stayed in from the amazing breakfast to the cozy, clean and well decorated rooms. Chris and Andrea have done a wonderful job with the Ruby and have paid attention to every detail. They make a wonderful breakfast that would compete with any 5 star restaurant. We will definitely stay at the Ruby everytime we visit Crested Butte.
