We have stayed at The Ruby a few times over the years, and we enjoy our stay each time. Chris makes great breakfasts, the home is always clean and comfortable, and the location is perfect for exploring all that CB has to offer. Use of a ski locker at the ski area is a nice perk if you stay a few days and ski. The staff does a great job of allowing you to relax and enjoy your stay as if they were not there, but they somehow are immediately available if need be. Whether you need a base for skiing, cycling, or just reading, relaxing and exploring town, The Ruby is a wonderful choice for any stay in Crested Butte.

My wife and I stayed at the Ruby while we were in town to ski. This was our first time and it was excellent. Everyone was extremely friendly and the place was very clean. Chris cooked us a great breakfast every morning and there were always some sort of cookies or snack out to eat during the day. The complimentary beer, wine and soda was a nice touch! I can't say enough about the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. They did a great job making it feel like you were going "home" every night. The location is another plus - very close to town and the bus stop.

When we return to CB, we will most definitely be staying at the Ruby.

Thank you for helping to make our trip so enjoyable!

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!

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!!

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!
