The B & B is a small and wonderful place to stay in Crested Butte. It's within walking distance of all of the shops and restaurants. The Chef, Lindsey created beautifully presented gourmet breakfasts. Erin was extremely helpful and gave us undivided attention. We will return!

My family and I stayed at the Ruby for a long weekend. What a relaxing and comfortable stay. Erin left us a hand written note welcoming us with room and breakfast details. Fresh baked pear tarts were also a welcome treat after a long drive. On Top of the World is a wonderfully spacious room with a loft. We were instantly comfortable and felt right at home. We often don’t sleep well the first night traveling but the Ruby was an exception with comfortable beds and linens. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Each morning Chef Lindsey made the most decadent and healthy breakfasts with a gluten free option for my wife. We looked forward to what each morning would bring with breakfast. Trails were close by for our morning walks and we used bikes provided for afternoon rides around town and out for dinner. The furniture was comfortable with an antique scrabble board for a little fun. Lindsey’s afternoon snacks are to die for and Erin will make sure you have everything you need during your stay. This was the best B&B experience and a wonderful stay. Erin and Lindsey make a great team. We can’t wait to go back!!

We just spent four glorious nights at The Ruby. The advertisement says “luxury B&B” and it lives up to it! Our room was so pretty and comfortable and clean with everything you could possibly need from hairdryer, luggage rack, robes and slippers. We had a king bed with period antique furniture which is perfect for this home away from home. Even with the few pieces of period antiques they are also modern too. We were greeted upon arrival by Erin (even though we were 2 hours later than we anticipated due to weather and traffic around Denver). She gave us a full tour and made us feel very welcome. She also cleaned our room daily. She gave us great advice on restaurants and hikes and bike trails. And best of all is the new addition to their staff, Lindsey who made the BEST breakfasts and afternoon snacks. She’s obviously been professionally trained as a chef and is passionate about her cooking. I have some dietary restrictions and she took them seriously and went all out to accommodate me still making it delicious. She is a delightful person and we had a good time hearing about her past chef experiences, talking recipes, travels etc. Both Erin and Lindsey most definitely possess the gift of hospitality. The Ruby is centrally located in the town and close to the ski resort area. We took lovely hikes and bike rides from there. They even have bikes to borrow if you don’t have one. We highly recommend The Ruby of Created Butte. Thank you Erin and Lindsey!!

Chris and Andrea went out of their way to accommodate us during our stay at the Ruby. We got engaged during our visit to Crested Butte and we will never forget the beauty and romantic feeling of the Ruby!

We could not have been happier with our visit to The Ruby. Our room #6 was perfect for our family of 5 (2adults, 3 children -13,13,11) and our kids loved the delicious breakfast not to mention the afternoon snacks. Lovely living room with vintage scrabble board and relaxing indoor hot tub rounded things out for a perfect stay. Can’t wait to return!
