Crested Butte has my heart; I have had the special privilege of living and visiting CB for many years. Eleven Experiences has two properties in Crested Butte, Colorado that are very special. Scarp Ridge Lodge is a seven-bedroom lodge that’s warm and welcoming. The lodge has all the amenities of a 5-star hotel to keep guests comfortable when they’re not skiing or exploring the surrounding mountains, and a variety indoor “hang” spaces such as a kid’s playroom, a beautiful media room, a gorgeous kitchen and dining area, and a spa and pool room. There is also an exercise room for the health conscious clients (although chances are guests will get plenty of exercise outdoors!) and a rooftop hot tub with a breathtaking view of Mount Crested Butte.
Sopris House is next door to Scarp Ridge Lodge and has seen its fair share of Crested Butte history. It has been lovingly restored and is equal in beauty and attention to detail as its neighbor. Sopris House offers a very similar experience as Scarp Ridge Lodge (complete with guided activities, customized itinerary etc.) but in a more intimate space. Staying at Sopris House is like staying at your best friend’s home that happens to have impeccable taste and an appreciation for comfort in a charming mountain town in Western Colorado.
In line with Eleven’s vision, both properties give guests unrivaled access to outdoor adventures without sacrificing the comforts of home. Both of these properties are fully equipped and beautifully decorated by No. 12 Interiors. Think gracious and effortlessly comfortable, understated and lovely. Both Scarp Ridge Lodge and Sopris house share beautiful décor, fabulous natural beauty, wonderful food, and the opportunity to partake in amazing activities. The staff at both Scarp Ridge Lodge and Sopris House is friendly, warm, and cater to each guest’s style and needs. They work hard to ensure each guest has a personalized, welcoming stay. A private concierge, known as an Experience Manager, will work to ensure your stay is exactly what you and your family/friends would want and expect when staying at either property. The staff pays attention to details such as noting a guest’s favorite color of winter wear, or their children’s favorite bedtime book (which will likely appear by the child’s bed later in the evening).
Mt Crested Butte has amazing steep skiing, fun intermediate skiing, and a great ski school for those looking to learn or improve their techniques. Many other outdoor activities such as Nordic skiing, backcountry skiing, ice-skating, and snowshoeing are also available. In the summertime the lodge offers fly-fishing, rock climbing, hiking, rafting, biking, stand up paddle boarding, and more. Shopping in quaint boutiques and dining at wonderful restaurants is only a 3-5 minute walk from the lodge.
In the winter, Scarp Ridge Lodge and Sopris House are available as full experiences. A family or group of 10 (more or less can fit as well) rent the entire lodge, the entire house, or both. Included in this is a private chef, breakfast and lunch, all your cat skiing or resort skiing, ski equipment, the enjoyment of these beautiful properties and all of their amenities such as a private pool, spa, sauna, and steam room. On the other hand, in the summer and fall, they are both available nightly and by the room. Contact me for more information about this wonderful property or the place I hold most dear!
Contact me for a special opportunity to enjoy all Eleven Experiences is offering in Crested Butte. There are some special opportunities available this winter such as, a last-minute Christmas holiday rental opportunity, an MLK weekend opening and in February there is a chance to rent rooms instead of the whole lodge or house.
