A Fully Decked-Out Cabin in the Heart of Downtown


The Crested Butte Love Shack - Experience a piece of Crested Butte, Colorado history by staying in an old miner's cabin, one of the original Crested Butte structures dating back to the mining era of the 1890's. The Cabin has been thoughtfully updated with the latest comforts and technology but still has all the charm and flavor of the old West. And the location absolutely can't be beat.

Just steps from historic Elk Avenue, the Cabin location is ideal. Shopping, dining, recreation trails, and the mountain (ski) shuttle bus are close by. The view of Mount Crested Butte from the Cabin is inspirational. Winter cross-county trails and summer wildflower hikes start a block from the front door.

This cozy, open-concept Cabin, filled with light and character, is the perfect getaway for a couple. It features a fully outfitted kitchen, one bathroom, and a comfy queen bed on the main level. In a pinch, it can also accommodate two more guests in a loft sleeping area. The exterior has a fenced-in yard with seating areas (including a funky artistic bench made out of old skis), a propane grill and a locked shed to house any skis/bikes/gear you bring with you. There is also a 2-car driveway to avoid the downtown parking permit/time limit hassles.

If you are looking for history mixed with the latest technology (including security enabled high-speed wireless internet, smartTV, Bluetooth speaker, and a high efficiency full-sized washer/dryer), you will find it here. This intimate, comfortable Cabin proves that great vacations and memories can come in small packages...

This non-traditional Cabin is perfect for the young-at-heart! It is located on First Street in Crested Butte, Colorado (just off of Elk Ave) - a fantastic location. Well behaved pets are very welcome.

About us

Nomads at heart, New Englanders by birth, Travelers by choice. We have visited more than 100+ countries and picked up bits of language and some crazy customs along the way! Many of our earlier years were spent wandering with nothing more then we could fit on our backs. Years passed, a couple wildly awesome kids showed up and some crazy properties found their way into our lives including a one-of-a-kind Miner's Cabin in the one-of-a-kind town of Crested Butte (truly one of the most beautiful places either of us has ever been) and, more recently, a gorgeous 25 acre former Vermont dairy farm which, when we found it, was a time capsule to the day it closed in the 1940s! 80 year old hay, anyone?

The Crested Butte Love Shack: We lived full-time in CB for many years and consider ourselves lucky to be stewards of the Crested Butte Cabin (since 2002!) - its a place filled with good energy and happy vibes, something you can feel the moment you step through its door!

The Big Barn Farm: We've lovingly restored this iconic Vermont Farm to its former glory and you can sometimes find us snowshoeing through the fields or picking apples from the secret orchard while sitting in the tractor bucket. What a breathtakingly beautiful place!

Whichever property you're interested in, we welcome you to our slice of paradise!
