10 Vrbo Crested Butte Rentals In The Mountains
Colorado is dotted with pretty towns to take in the splendor of the Rocky Mountains. Although each season brings with it different sources of wonder and memorable activities, the high country is a great year-round destination. And when it comes to beauty and fun, few places match the sleepy town of Crested Butte.
Skiers love the Butte for its excellent snow and lack of crowds (because it’s much farther from the state’s population centers, far fewer people make it). However you fancy skiing, you’ll enjoy small resort charm, luxurious spas, decadent restaurants, and plenty to do. Summer visitors will enjoy the miles and miles of hiking and biking trails (which are often the site of wonderful explosions of wildflowers), fishing, and a steady stream of festivals and events. In the fall, the mountains seem to go up in flames as the yellow leaves of the aspen glisten in the sun (an underrated example of fall foliage only seen in the West).
And that takes us back to winter and spring where the glorious snow speaks for itself.
To find out why savvy skiers and those seeking quieter mountain scenery choose Crested Butte, book your trip today. The following is a list of 10 Vrbo rentals in Crested Butte to help you find your way to the perfect vacation.
