“They are AWESOME!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2007

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 !!!!!!!

We had a fabulous time once again...for our 5th visit :) The snowshoeing & sledding was a blast! I know Mia and Riley (our dogs) were bummed thay didn't get to Run around w/ River.

  • Liked — Breakfasts, walking distance to shopping and dining, very clean!, nice owners
  • Disliked — Often booked - can be difficult to get last minute reservations

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.

  • Liked — Breakfast and cleanliness. Beds were very comfortable.

We stayed at the Ruby over New Year's 2006. Our experience was perfect. The B & B itself was comfortable and decorated just right-a blend of antiques and Pottery Barn. Definetely not a stuffy victorian inn. The breakfasts were really filling and delicious; we didn't need to eat again until late afternoon. The hosts Andrea and Chris were really knowledgable about CB and pleasent to be around. It is worth the price. We plan to go back as soon as we can.

We were on a week long trip through SW Colorado and decided to make the visit to CB for the first time. Our friends recommended the Ruby (they stayed there with their dog in August) as one of the better B&B's the had stayed in. We really enjoyed our stay! Crested Butte was neat too - like a snowglobe town. The innkeepers at the Ruby were very nice, but the place itself was even better - very clean and elegant, kind of like a Pottery Barn catalog. Our room had a nice private bath and one of the more comfortable hotel beds I've experienced. Breakfasts were served kinda early, but it was very good. One caveat - make sure you know where they are before you get into town. They are right in town, but since they are new, nobody knows who they are! We drove around town for 20 minutes looking for it before we stumbled on it.

The Innkeepers Andrea and Chris went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. We also thought the Inn was a very good value. We would go back in a minute.
