Nightly Wine Tastings at Boutique Lodge Surrounded by Rugged Mountain Terrain

Crested Butte is affectionately called "Colorado's last great ski town.” It’s a small town with the feel of the Old West still intact; Elk Avenue, the main drag in the downtown National Historic District, is lined with Victorian storefronts and fine-dining restaurants housed in log cabins. The town is also ideally situated amid the snow-capped peaks of Crested Butte Mountain. The Inn at Crested Butte is situated in the heart of downtown, about 2 miles south of the Mountain Resort.

All members of the front-desk staff are long-time residents of the area as well as active hikers and bikers. They know the ins and outs of the mountain trails here, and can point you towards the hidden gems among the area's dozens of restaurants. They can also direct you to Crested Butte Mountain Resort, where those purchasing the first option are entitled a scenic chairlift ride aboard The Red Lady Express. It whisks passengers up to high-elevation mountain biking trails.

Once you return to the inn after a day out, you can join a complimentary wine tasting that features seasonal selections handpicked by a local sommelier. Feel free to curl up by the lobby fireplace with a glass of red, or buy a bottle of white to take back to your room. "This is great place for people who like to do go out and do things, and then come back, relax, and watch the sunset," says Ken Stone, a consultant for the Inn at Crested Butte.

It’s also easy to get a nice view of the mountains at the Inn. A jacuzzi located on the second-story porch looks directly at the peaks. The sun-filled dining room has a front porch with great views; guests head here every morning to enjoy a hearty continental breakfast, which has a spread of fresh fruit, yogurt, and pastries.

Crested Butte, Colorado: Small Ski-Resort Town in the Rockies with Authentic Old West Charm

Crested Butte is situated at 9,000 feet in southwest Colorado's Rocky Mountains, and it’s surrounded by some lovely scenery. Aspen groves dot the upper valleys of the town’s namesake peak, as well as fields of fiery indian paintbrush.

After a resort area was built on Crested Butte Mountain in 1961, the former coal-mining town emerged as a major ski center, particularly for extreme skiers. Despite this rapid transformation, Crested Butte has preserved its roots. Victorian storefronts and art galleries line downtown Elk Avenue, and there’s a famous whiskey distillery that welcomes visitors year-round. For a glimpse into the town's history, head to the Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum, which has an elaborate diorama that elucidates life here in the mining days of the 1920s.

Though most famous for skiing, Crested Butte is also hailed as one of the most dynamic cities in the country for mountain biking. Some even claim the sport actually began here. Located 8 miles from the hotel, Pearl Pass—the birthplace of the "fat-tire" craze—stretches for nearly 40 miles through rugged alpine terrain. Beginning mountain bikers might want to make their way to the Lower Loop, a somewhat flat ride, which is covered in the region's famous wildflowers and has great mountain views.
