“Purple Mountain B&B What a Great Find in Crested Butte”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

This was a great get away for my wife and I for our anniversary. We had a wonderful room that was very clean and very comfortable. Our host Chris was awesome and a great cook. He even took into consideration and cooked for me with gluten free in mind! Thanks for your wonderful food Chris. Purple Mountain is a great stay, walking distance to town and great recommendations from Chris on things to do around town and places to eat. We will definitely return, For first timers to the area - Kebler Pass is a must - the scenery is spectacular! Lot of great photo opportunities!

Room Tip: The rooms are well represented on their web site. When we got there the room looked just like the p...

There is nothing negative to say about Purple Mountain Lodge. The location is perfect, a few blocks from Crested Butte's downtown. Host, Chris, gave a tour of the B & B when I checked in & had left instructions in a note in case I came while he had stepped away.

The accommodations are clean and comfortable, with anything I needed available (mugs, water, & wine glasses, filtered and hot tap water in the kitchen). The common areas are comfortable and promote visiting amongst guests. And the breakfasts are delicious, made fresh each morning. No cold cereal & Yoplait yogurt to be seen here!

I would definitely recommend Purple Mountain Lodge to anyone wanting to experience the genuine and relaxing environment of Crested Butte.

We made our first trip to Crested Butte in July and honestly cannot wait to go back. When we do, there's only one place we'll stay - Purple Mountain Lodge. Our room was perfect - comfortable bed, nice shower, and a deck that was great for unwinding. We enjoyed the free cruiser bikes - the tandem provided an entertaining way to get to and from dinner.

Chris had great recommendations for dinners and activities. He knows his town, and his tips were greatly appreciated. And wow, his breakfasts were incredible! Homemade jams for his buttermilk biscuits, freshly made yogurt, and so much more.

It was truly a great time - and we hope we can make it back for some skiing soon.

Six of us (three couples) stayed at the Purple Mountain Lodge for two nights in June...and we're already planning a return visit. Comfortable room, convenient location, and attentive staff resulted in a fabulous weekend. Check out the Purple Mountain Lodge...you'll love it!

We spent 3 nights at Purple Mountain Lodge and had a fantastic time. The rooms were very clean and quaint and Chris was so welcoming. His breakfasts were so fresh and delicious. We enjoyed using the bikes to ride to town every night. We are looking forward to out next trip to Purple Mountain.

Spent 10 great days in the Teocali and Twin Buttes rooms just prior to July 4. Chris was accommodating and very interested in making sure we had what we needed. From orange infused maple syrup over homemade Belgian waffles to setting up his bike stand and offering tools and trail beta we couldn't have been more pleased. Hot tub is awesome after a tough day on the bike or hike.

Normally not B&B guests but this is far from the normal B&B. See you in 2013 Chris. Phil a.k.a LUV2MTB from Canada.

Room Tip: Teocali - Private hot tub after 10.

The Purple Mt is a gem, as is Crested Butte. Chris seems perfect for the job as B&B owner. He was so helpful to us in planning hikes and telling guests about events in town. Breakfasts were amazing and most ingredients made on site. In town location, close to other houses but perfect to ride BB bikes into town. And nice porch to sit on. Can't wait to go back.
