My fiance and I are huge fans of The Ruby of Crested Butte. Our first date as a couple was in Crested Butte last January a year ago. We returned this past January, engaged, and plan on returning again throughout our marriage to celebrate. As "B&B aficionados", The Ruby is above and beyond any other bed&breakfast we have visited.

My daughter and her fiance had a beautiful experience at The Ruby. From their arrival, throughout their wedding events, until their departure - they felt like royalty and family at the same time! Every detail was lovingly attended to and so much more than we expected. Andrea was such a help coordinating the officiant, the photographer, florist, pastry chef, and... More

We were really impressed with the property but were even more impressed with the service! They go above and beyond and the breakfast is to die for. In addition the location is ideal. You can walk into town easily and Elk Avenue has great shops and restaurants.

This is a very warm and welcoming B&B, Chris, Emily and Andrea are charming and helpful, the rooms cosy and comfortable. Above all the breakfast is a joy and a perfect start to a day on the mountains, carefully and expertly prepared and delicious. You couldn't do better!

A very well appointed B&B situated between the slopes and downtown making access to both very easy whether in your own car or on the local bus. Chris is a very gracious host, easy to talk to and very talented in the kitchen. Every morning started with a great breakfast and a wide selection of beverages, including lattes and cappuccinos....

My wife and I took a ski trip to Crested Butte and stayed our last night at The Ruby in Crested Butte. The place was super cozy, dog friendly and the breakfast was amazing. Gourmet, really. The best part, however, was chatting with the owner, Chris, for an hour after breakfast. Like us, he was from Denver, but moved his... More

Our experience was amazing. Breakfast was was delicious and provided a solid base for a day on the slopes - not a dainty start like some B&Bs offer. Such great attention to detail. Like cookies to greet at the end of a day, comfortable gathering spaces, refrigerator to stash left overs or snacks and a handful of colorado beers. The... More

My wife and I got engaged in Crested Butte (Sep 2011) and we stayed at The Ruby. The place is so lovely, cozy, and comfy we could easily call it home. The breakfast was fun and delicious, especially the homemade parfait. We will definitely come back, with our 9 month old son now

We arrived to find chocolate-covered strawberries, then a note on Valentine's Day asking us to let us know if there is anything we need. Special attention to details. We liked the thick robes, the hot tub, and overall cleanliness. Chris' breakfasts and visits with him afterward were the best!

We spent our 26th wedding anniversary at The Ruby. We had a private bath and bedroom, daily room service,use of the hot tub and a magnificent healthy breakfast with Cappuccinos, made by Emily. We were within walking distance to Elk Ave and the bus service to the ski mountain. Thank you Chris and Emily for making our Anniversary something to... More
