Maybe the most amazing thing about The Ruby (and Chris and Andrea) is that it exceeds expectations every visit. And that's no mean feat considering I have been there probably 12 or so times -- and I've thrown a few curve balls at them in the process (including showing up unexpectedly due to a litle oversight on my part). Welcoming, accommodating (all sorts of things, including working special dietary considerations into the phenomenal breakfasts) and gracious do not begin to describe The Ruby experience. We love arriving (the warm cookies don't hurt) and hate leaving, but we know we will only be away temporarily!

Green Features: Chris and Andrea are very environmentally responsible in all aspects of their operation, but it is never intrusive.

We decided to spontaneously take a trip to CB and ended up choosing The Ruby because they allowed dogs. Upon arrival we were greeted, shown our room and given the tour of the facility...which is amazing! All the amenities of home and more. Honestly everything about The Ruby (rooms, amenities, staff, location, breakfast, etc.) was the best I have had anywhere in Colorado. We will definitely come back to The Ruby. Thank you Andrea and Chris! Top Notch!

This was our fourth stay at the Ruby, which is starting to feel like our home away from home. Chris and Andrea tirelessly worked to make our stay feel comfortable yet special. The support staff are welcoming, friendly, and great to chat with. It is the feel of the place that is so unique though. Everything from the rooms, to the breakfasts, to the wonderfully snowy views from the upper living room couches... it all adds up to a very special place to live when away from home. Highly recommended!!

Green Features: Balanced perfectly with fine service. Example - bottled water is always available, but a little sign encourages other earth-friendly practices if you don't mind. Very reasonable and appropriate.

Last weekend my girlfriend and I went to Crested Butte where we were lucky enough to stay at the Ruby. It was recommended as a great place by a friend and dogs are allowed it made it easy for us and both of our dogs. We were stunned by the generosity and hospitality of the owners (Andrea and Chris) as well as the rest of the staff. From the moment we walked in we were treated very well. The Ruby is very clean and well maintained and the rooms are very comfortable- there were even dog bowls, treats and dog beds waiting for our dogs! Chris made an excellent gourmet breakfast on both mornings. We will definitely be back!

A friend and I wanted to get away for a night and decided to head to Crested Butte. I looked online the night before at several places to stay in Crested Butte and came across The Ruby's website. I was immediately intrigued by Chris and Andrea's story of how they got started in the hospitality business and decided to book a room. Having never stayed at a true B&B before I didn't really know what to expect, but being in the hospitality industry myself for the past 12 years I truly appreciate great service. Upon being greeted by Andrea when we checked in we could immediately tell we were going to enjoy our stay at The Ruby. Andrea and Chris's passion for taking care of their guests was evident from the moment we met them. The attention to detail in the eloquently appointed rooms and common areas was impeccable. The fresh baked cookies in the evening, delicious breakfast in the morning, and the refrigerator full of my favorite micro-brewery's beer (Odell's) in the refrigerator was a nice touch.
The only downfall to the weekend is that we didn't get completely snowed in and had to leave after only one night!

Our former favorite B&B in Crested Butte, the Elizabeth Anne, had closed its doors. This led us to try The Ruby. How wonderful to find another perfect spot! The rooms were lovely, the breakfasts delicious (ask the night before for the French toast!) The staff could not possibly have been friendlier or more helpful. Every inquiry was met with a smile and an answer.

An old-fashioned Coca Cola machine is used as a refrigerator off the entry way so you can grab water or a soft drink before heading out for the day. And for a pick-me-up when you return just grab a cookie in the downstairs den.

We are lucky enough to go to C.B. every year and now we have a new "home" there at The Ruby.
