“Aspens in the autumn”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We spent 2 nights at the Purple Mountain Lodge with a group of friends. In fact, we took up most of the living room during a football game and then the dining room for those delicious breakfasts. Chris was a very informative host, offering info on restaurants, hiking/biking trails and even offering his help after we left Crested Butte.
Our room was cozy with a good shower. Some of the rooms are larger than others but all are comfortable.
We were there at the height of the aspen glory, before snow, so no crowds either.

Room Tip: Just ask Chris when making reservations which rooms are larger. Also, the room on the first floor mi...

A perfect B&B in the best mountain town in Colorado, and maybe the US. Chris runs a terrific launching pad to get to know the place and all it has to offer, which is a ton. World class skiing, unbelievable fall colors and vistas, great fishing, hiking, and the best mountain biking in the world. Chris thinks of every detail, from having the weather posted, hike/bike suggestions each week including trip reports and maps for every route, to having plenty of cruiser bikes to use to explore the town (even a tandem!), menus for every restaurant, immaculately clean and comfortable rooms, a nice outdoor shared jacuzzi, an onsite day spa, and not to mention the delicious well thought out healthy breakfasts. Enjoy.

Room Tip: All rooms are fine. The Twin Buttes and Whetstone room have the best light and view of surrounding p...

Fantastic! This was our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast and it was wonderful. We made ourselves right at home. Chris helped guide us with dining options and then made reservations for our group of 4 couples. The bicycles out front were for the guests to use and Chris gave us information on where to bike, then in the afternoon we drove a short distance to hike into the hills. The breakfasts were fantastic homemade dishes and we left our plates empty. The house and bedrooms were very clean and comfortable. It was like visiting a fairy tale town. The views outside were goregous. Many different types of restaurants and a definite place for a peaceful get away from everything.

First time ever going to a bed and breakfast. Was very cozy and very welcoming. Chris was very knowledgeable of the area and great recommendations for things to do in the area. Some of the best breakfast ive ever ate. You will get full. The whole experience was amazing and my girlfriend was very impressed. We are in our late 20's and is great for all ages and adventurous people. Romantic also. Would recommend this place to everyone. It's definitely a must!!! They run a top notch b&b!

We really enjoyed the comfortable room and appreciated the fact that large dogs are accepted! Breakfasts were great, and we especially loved having the use of the bicycles and hot tub. Our room had a marvelous view of a mountain surrounding Crested Butte, which is an absolutely lovely town, especially when the Aspen trees are at their peak fall colors, as they were when we were there.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are probably equally nice. There is one room with its own balcony, and some r...

The Purple Mountain Lodge is the perfect place to stay while visiting Crested Butte. We could not have asked for a better experience. Chris was so welcoming and helpful. He went above and beyond making us feel "At home". The breakfasts were a delicious delight to wake up to every morning. All of his suggestions for hiking, off-roading, and dining were perfect for our preferences and made our vacation so much better than we could have ever imagined. The biggest surprise was the proposal from my boyfriend of 7 years. I could not think of a more perfect place for us to be engaged. We will definitely return for our anniversaries. When I think about our stay at PML and Crested Butte, I get a feeling of comfort and happiness. Thank you Chris for being such a significant part of making our trip to Crested Butte so unforgettable.

Absolutely perfect! I visited Crested Butte to get away from the city and check out 40 acres of land for sale that I was interested in purchasing. I reviewed a handful of places to stay and am so glad I chose Purple Mountain... Chris was friendly, breakfast was delicious, my room was darling, clean and the bed was comfortable. I didn't take advantage of the town bikes, but thought it was cool that they were available for guests. The property I looked at is far too rural for me and when I return to Crested Butte I will definitely stay at this B & B again!
