“Amazing space and delicious food!”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

On our third night now and all I can say is it has been amazing! Great service, nice rooms and up to date! Definitely the luxury spot for CB. Chris, Andrea and Emily make you feel at home and they were amazing with our group of 8. Also, Chris is an unbelievable cook who worked with all our dietary restrictions. We already booked our rooms for next year and will keep coming back!

Stayed July 2014

Fantastic place in all aspects: beautiful, comfortable, friendly, flexible, accommodating, etc. Our family of eight (2 parents, 4 kids, 2 grandparents) descended on Crested Butte for a family wedding. The Ruby was the perfect place to stay: parents + kids in the large, multi-level, multi-bed suite, and grandparents in their own room. Chris, Andrea & crew welcomed us, took care of us, and offered great conversation & advice about CB -- as well as amazing breakfasts + free bicycles to cruise around town. Wonderful people, lovely facility, delicious food...awesome!

Very helpful hosts and amazing breakfasts. They have complementary bikes which are great - just a couple of blocks away from town but certainly close enough to walk/bike. Always spotless. The hosts and staff are always very helpful. The only tiny negative is if you are a light sleeper, you might hear some hallway noise at night. Pet-friendly.

Room Tip: Get a room facing mountains

Fabulous B And B situated in the heart of Crested Butte. Chris, Andrea, and their staff are
remarkable, accomodating , and ensure that you have a great time. The rooms are warm and comfortable, the grounds are peaceful , the amenities are excellent--such as homemade chocolate chip cookies, cupcakes, and fruit infused water, but what puts this place in the stratosphere is the
out of the world breakfasts! From the French toast , to Frittatas, to the cinnamon rolls, and parfaits, you cannot and will not ever leave hungry ! We have stayed at the Ruby before and we cannot say enough about what a fantastic and charming place the Ruby is!!!

Room Tip: all rooms are great. you really can't go wrong

Fantastic B&B right in the heart of Crested Butte. Quiet Street (we heard zero street noise!).
The owners could not be more accommodating and wonderful. They provide terrific customer service and great conversation.

Ok, the breakfasts... let's just say that I'd go again just for the food. SO GOOD! All home made. And watch out for the fresh baked cookies always on hand. I would make trips downstairs just to walk past the cookie plate for another!

The staff also made great dinner recommendations! Definitely check out Sunflower.

Additions: "Town cruisers" provided for biking around town. Jaccuzi. Complimentary drinks. Nice yard. Views.

We highly recommend it!

Room Tip: We stayed in the upstairs room. Nice, light!

Green Features: They definitely make an effort to be green and use green products without compromising quality. We LOVED the bathroom products.

Our first visit to beautiful Crested Butte was made better by our one night stay at The Ruby. We came to explore and struck gold. The rooms were unique and comfortable and every amenity was provided. Simple touches like access to a fridge with water, beer and wine plus a snack area helped to give a homelike feel. Andrea and Chris are great, friendly people who know how to care for guests and their breakfast was a healthy, delicious way to start our day of hiking. Winter or summer, this is a great place to stay.

Our four night stay at The Ruby of Crested Butte was great. The staff did everything they could to make our visit to their inn, and to Crested Butte, a real pleasure. Breakfasts were delicious. We hated to leave and hope to be back again in the future. We highly recommend The Ruby to everyone!
