My wife and celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary (the "ruby" anniversary) by staying 2 nights in Crested Butte at The Ruby. What a wonderful experience in a beautiful and cozy B&B. Comfy beds, nicely decorated room with every amenity imaginable and friendly hosts. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. The french toast and cinnamon buns are specialties and deservedly so....

My husband and I stay at the Ruby for a long weekend every July. It is my absolute favorite B&B. The owner, Chris, makes an amazing breakfast complete with delicious cinnamon rolls every morning. The conversation is always interesting. It is within walking distance of downtown Crest Butte's shops and restaurants and driving distance of great hikes. Every amenity is... More

This is a lovely B&B, conveniently located within walking distance of all Crested Butte amenities and outdoor activities. The availability of bikes is a pleasant perk and the breakfasts were exceptional and far surpass other B & B's. Lunch is not required as even engaging in the more strenuous activities of the region, most people can forego lunch and simply... More

Spent 5 nights at The Ruby over the 4th of July weekend. The owner and staff were awesome! Food is great, Got spoiled with perfect lattes every morning. Lots of places inside and around the grounds to sit and relax. Plenty of townie bikes to take a ride around town. Would highly recommend this B&B any time of year.

A friend of ours who is prone to hyperbole told us we *HAD* to stay at The Ruby. He insisted it would probably be the best experience ever and beat the pants off an old favorite mountain B&B we had. We rolled our eyes, but ultimately decided to give it a whirl. Turns out... he was absolutely right. The Ruby... More

We just stayed at the Ruby in Crested Butte prior to the fourth of july holiday weekend. It was a great place to stay - everyone was so friendly, helpful and understanding of our needs. We were with our puppy and they brought us dog bowls, treats and had a lovely yard where we could let our puppy play. I... More

This is a very fine B&B -- one of the best we have experienced. The owners and staff go out of their way to accommodate their guests. The views are not particularly scenic (the facility is in town) but they make up for it with gardens and a private back yard (and with a flower box outside every window). Great... More

Located in the heart of Crested Butte, the Ruby is truly a luxury B&B. The six-bedroom inn is a converted house that is minutes walk to lift bus and best restaurants in town. Proprietor Chris provides every need including a personalized breakfast made to order in the upstairs dining room, which feels like you are visiting in his own house.... More

Our family had an amazing stay at The Ruby! Excellent breakfast, luxurious beds, free use of townie bikes, afternoon cookies and brownies, great location within walking distance of restaurants/shopping and above all very warm and welcoming owners and staff. It was wonderful to enjoy a delicious breakfast every morning while visiting with the other guests, owner and staff...what a great... More

Ok. This is important. If you are going to Crested Butte (and you should), be sure to book a room at The Ruby. It's the best B&B in town and state. Why? Where should I begin? The gracious and knowledgeable owners, Chris and Andrea; the friendly and helpful staff, Kaleb, Jessica and Christy? The unbelievably delicious and abundant breakfast? The... More
