That describes Crested Butte perfectly, and Purple Mountain owner Chris Haver makes you feel right at home ... in a great way! From our arrival until our departure everything was just right. A welcome letter on the bulletin board gave us what we needed - instructions, access to our room and to all the amenities. At 5pm Chris led beer... More

My boyfriend at the time, now husband, and I went to this B&B on our first trip to Colorado. What a blessing! We had the most amazing time. Chris was a wonderful host! The breakfast was the best I've ever had in a B&B - EVER. We used the bikes they provided to get around town and even up to... More

Okay, the beer sampling was in the afternoon, but since Chris ( proprietor ) is fond of making his own brew, he invites his guests to taste the Rocky Mountain microbrews most afternoons. This is in addition to having some of the best breakfasts my wife and I have ever had in a B&B ! The rooms are reasonably priced,... More

We just enjoyed our second visit to the Purple Mountain Lodge. The owner, Chris, is a great guy and a really great businessman. He seems to know just what guests need/want at all times. He is knowledgeable about all of the restaurants in town and suggests great hikes depending on what you're looking for. His complimentary "Happy Hour" beer tasting... More

Purple Mountain is the perfect B&B. Located a few blocks from historic downtown Crested Butte and close to hiking trails, it is ideally located. Chris, the owner and innkeeper, is a terrific host who makes all his guests feel welcome. It starts with the beer-tasting happy hour which attracts all guests to the common area. His breakfasts are first class!... More

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

Love the Purple Mountain B&B. Comfortable, clean, welcoming, friendly and exceptional breakfasts! Seriously, no need for lunch after each morning's gastronomic delight! 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
