We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo with our toddler, 2 other couples and their 2 children for a weekend of mountain biking in the fall. The lodge is nicely decorated and inviting, but the overall feel is cramped.
We had a first floor unit, and it is one level. All 3 bedrooms are small and the furniture fills up the space, not leaving much room for luggage or movement. The opening for the TV above the fireplace in the living room was so small that the DVD player did not fit, and had to be dangled from an ottoman to span the electrical outlet and the TV connections. There are 3 bathrooms which is great when there are 3 families.
The lodge is right next to the recreation path that goes into Crested Butte (Black Bear Lodge is 2 miles up the road in Mt. Crested Butte). It is also in walking distance to a ski lift. There is an outdoor shared hot tub for the guests that has a nice view down the valley.
I would recommend this condo for a smaller group, as it is cozy and nice. But for 6 adults and 3 children, there wasn't enough common space for us to be able to share it comfortably and relax at the same time.
