“Couldn't have been more perfect!”
Reviewed January 21, 2010

The Bed and Breakfast was immaculate with lots of little thoughtful touches - instant hot water for tea (people usually only think of coffee drinkers!), home made cookies, home made jams in the morning with breakfast, robes in the room (for the hot tub). The owner, Chris, provided insights into all the quaint restaurants and shops with honest reviews. He was full of local knowledge (which ski runs to be on, where to buy a swimsuit) which made as comfortable in on our excursions. The breakfast was outstanding and creative - made from scratch, organic.

Chris is great. Not only are his breakfasts amazing but so is his company. He is knowledgeable on the local restaurants and local powder spots. I will come back here when I visit Crested Butte again.

We spent our 10th Anniversary in Crested Butte staying at Purple Mountain Lodge. Chris obviously takes pride in everything he provides for his guests. We usually make a courtesy visit to breakfast and then find somewhere good to eat. Not here. Amazing breakfasts were an unexpected and welcome surprise. The room was very cozy, too. Excellent deal all around.

We had an excellent stay. The breakfasts were outstanding and Chris's knowledge of local biking trails, hiking trails and restaurants was outstanding. Our room was comfortable and our B&B experience made for an enjoyable, fun and relaxing vacation.

Jake the Dog would gladly return to see Chirs, Micaela, and Zoey at The Purple Mountain Lodge! We only had time to stay one night, but will return for ski season and next summer for July 4th. Chris, the owner, was so personable and one hell of a fantastic chef! His breakfast was amazing! The laid back, homey feel of the house is so relaxing. We loved our quiant room and its view of Crested Butte Mountain.
It was wonderful to be able to take our pup Jake and for him to make friends as well.
Our advise.... GO you will love it!

We will always return to the Purple Mountain Lodge. Chris makes you feel at home and boy or boy can he cook.

Not only is this a gorgeous and comfortable B&B in a great location, but Chris is also a thoughtful and welcoming host, an excellent conversationalist, a fantastic cook (who had no trouble with our special no meat/no wheat diet needs), an experienced hiker and biker who makes knowledgable suggestions for outdoor adventure, and an enthusiastic guide to Crested Butte. Best of all? He and the ever-wagging Makayla welcomed our dog, too, so we could all enjoy Colorado together. The house itself is lovely, well-decorated and nicely kept with an inviting vibe. Like staying with a cool, laid-back friend who also happens to be a dynamite chef. And likes large dogs.
