Staying at the Purple Mountain gave my husband and I the quintessential B & B experience. Only steps away from the quaint downtown which offers fine dining, music, wine bars, and shopping as well as a free shuttle that will bring you up the Mountain for a day of glorious skiing, what more could you want? We were welcomed with... More

As 2 seniors on a ski road trip and staying 3 nights at Purple Mountain we felt this was OK but with rooms not comparing well for size, comfort, upscale accoutrements, we felt this was not as good value as most B&B's we stayed in. On plus side Chris was a great host, beer hour a treat, as were his... More

Brian, Thank you so much for taking the time and writing us a nice review. We greatly appreciate it. I do agree with you, that the rooms you were in are small. However, they are our economy size rooms and the only ones we had left when you booked your reservation. We do offer several deluxe rooms that are much... More

Chris is a wonderful host, chef and story teller. Lots of great information on local lore, places to and things to see and do. Like Crested Butte, the in was a welcoming easy place to relax and feel... More

You will feel right at home. He even brews his own Beer and talks about it in detail - very informative. The room was very nice too - can't... More

Great place! We stayed 4 nights. The owner/manager Chris was excellent. Very helpful, nice guy. Great cook! Breakfasts were wonderful. The location is just 2 blocks or so from the bus stop to head up to the mountain for skiing/snowboarding. Just passed the bus stop is the downtown Elk Street to restaurants and shopping. This was great. We parked our... More

Firstly, Crested Butte is wonderful. Unpretentious but also outstanding. We found great food, great drinks and great people. Purple Mountain was no exception. The room was exactly what we wanted. Chris is a gracious host and a better than average breakfast chef and a good home brewer too (he also loves to share). We also highly recommend the day spa.... More

An excellent place to stay in Crested Butte. The rooms were very nice, Chris made very tasty/filling breakfasts before our ski days, and his recommendations for dining and night life were perfect. I've stayed there 3 years in a row during ski season and never had a complaint.

I can't imagine anyplace nicer to stay in Crested Butte than the Purple Mountain Lodge. Lovely rooms, mountain views, a fire going in the beautiful stone fireplace in the sitting area, and a gracious and thoughtful host: Chris made the most wonderful breakfasts, shared insights into the town, and made us feel completely at home. Even on a very cold... More
