Cabin Homestead was great just what we wanted, quaint quiet and all our needs were met. We loved the location and wish we had found it earlier. We WILL go back and choose the same cabin again.

We also loved the setting, the river, hammocks, firepits, trees, trials, mountain views, Neko, everything was just perfect.

The cabin was everything described on the website and more. Very charming and welcoming. We enjoyed sitting by the fire pit, lazying in the hammock and enjoying a glass of wine watching the sun set. The weather was perfect. As hikers, we enjoyed the many choices of trails from the campground and very nearby. Playing board games next to the wood stove and engaging in real conversations was a highlight. When we took our picture in front of the cabin on our last day, we were already planning our next trip back. LOVED IT!!!!

Our visit went by so fast; we hated to leave and just wanted to extend our stay with you for another couple of weeks and probably even more.

Without a doubt, this was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had! Everything was absolutely perfect!! My only regret was that we didn’t take enough pictures!

Thanks again for allowing us to stay with you and all of you made our stay so much more special. We hope we didn’t burn up too much of the firewood because it just made a perfect way to end a day at Pioneer Cabins.

This is a family-friendly way to enjoy the stunning Crested Butte area. We stayed in the Doubletop Cabin. It was super-clean, well-appointed for cooking, cozy and had just the right amount of rustic charm: hummingbirds at the feeder every day, plenty of firewood for smores and lots of cozy down quilts and blankets when the nights got chilly. The size was perfect for a family with two kids who spent a lot of the day outdoors. We were just minutes from town by car with hiking and fishing literally at a our doorstep. The owners have a wonderful visitor room filled with lender books, games and maps and even extra camp chairs. They were always willing to offer suggestions for places to visit. We were lucky to have several other families there on our stay, and our kids had instant playmates. The cabins were nicely spaced apart, and each had a Weber Grill, firepit, Adirondack chairs and a hammock by the delightful cement creek. If you like the outdoors, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, beautiful scenery and some nice authentic shopping and dining nearby, this is a great choice. When the kids are older, we'll go back so we hike around the Maroon Bells to Aspen!

This is our third consecutive year to stay at the Pioneer Guest Cabins. The cabins are what we would categorize as modernized rustic and very charming. The cabins are located alongside the Cement Creek so there is the lovely sound of the water to listen to 24/7. Each cabin has a firepit and the owners supply cut wood. The evenings are cool enough to have a fire each evening in the firepit. It is simply a wonderful place to stay, just far enough outside of Crested Butte to be away from people, yet close enough to CB to enjoy dinner and/or shopping in town. We could go on and on about the Pioneer. In our opinion it is the greatest place to stay in Colorado. The owners, Matt and Leah, are extremely nice and helpful as well.

The Pioneer Guest Cabins are eight small cabins built along Cement Creek, 8 miles south of Crested Butte. They have all been recently renovated, while still retaining their historic charm. The cabins have both two and three beds. We've stayed here three times, each time in one of the "newer" cabins, (circa 1970), which have one bed in a bedroom, and two beds in a sleeping loft open to the central living space below. The cabin has a small bathroom with a shower, a small but functional kitchen with a dining table that seats 4 easily, more if you are very cozy. There is a woodburning stove and a propane heater (looks like a woodstove, too) for plenty of warmth. The woodburning stove is flanked by two loveseats, making it the perfect place to cuddle up and enjoy the fire at night, or to read on a (rare) rainy day.
Outside each cabin, there is a hammock, picnic table, Weber grill, and a fire ring surrounded by as wooden adirondack-type chairs. The creek is easily accessible for fishing or exploring, and there are hiking trails that start right at the property. One of the trails leads 1400' up the mountain to an antique warming hut, a remnant of the property's history as the site of Colorado's first ski lift (dismantled in 1952). Other hikes are along the creek, or a short distance away from the cabins accessible from a dirt road.
Matt and Leah, the owners, bought the place around 2000, and take great care of it. They've put a lot into it, and obviously are in it for the long run. They are both extremely nice and helpful. They have a dog and two young children, and make everyone feel at home. The small office has a lending library (and TVs and VCRs and movies to borrow, if you must). They keep the cabins stocked in firewood and sugar for the hummingbird feeders that hang outside the windows, entertaining everyone.
We've always stayed in the summer, but I'm sure it's gorgeous in the winter, a great place to play in the snow and retreat to a cozy cabin when you're done.
For off-the-information-grid fun, this place can't be beat!
