This was the perfect spot to celebrate getting married :) The beautiful bedrooms and delicious breakfasts were absolutely luxurious, but it also has a great laid-back feeling and every detail to make things comfortable-- good coffee when you wake up, hot tub to soak in post-skiing, cookies and snacks in the living room area, and a fridge stocked with water,...

This is the perfect place for a get-away. The accommodations are first class and the owners are wonderful people with a desire to please their quests! The breakfast fare is varied, well-prepared and scrumptious! I will return again for sure!

My first experience of the Ruby was on the phone and via email with Andrea, the owner. I was trying to plan a special romantic weekend. She was incredible!!! She picked up a bottle of wine for us to enjoy our first night in, she found reservations for us at a wonderful restaurant, she was friendly, knowledgeable, and just plain...

For our 25th wedding annv., my husband planned a trip back to Crested Butte where we were married. So romantic on his part. The hotel we stayed in 25 years ago had closed so, he found The Ruby and booked it. My husband liked how easy it was to keep in touch with Chris and Andrea to work out details...

The staff were amazing to us! They gave us tips of things to do and places to eat. You could tell they loved their hometown and area. Our room was luxurious and cozy. My husband and I loved the bath robes. It was lovely to have complimentary drinks and treats/snacks in the evening. The hot tub was relaxing too --...

Husband and I had a wonderful time at this jaw droppingly gorgeous place. It has the 'wow' factor. From the luxurious bedding to the high attention to detail to the choice of toiletries, the divine breakfast to the delicious treats, this place was amazing. Only regret is that we had only two nights. We did a short hike to the...

The Ruby is the perfect place to relax after a busy day hiking in the beautiful mountains in Crested Butte. It's quiet and private but also social at the breakfast gathering. Chris cooks a phenomenal breakfast, the French toast was our favorite and the homemade cinnamon rolls are great too! We would love to return again and again.

We recently had a wonderful stay at The Ruby in Crested Butte! The hosts are incredibly helpful and the breakfasts were absolutely amazing! Also, it's a fabulous location in town so you can walk to everything on Elk Avenue. We highly recommend The Ruby to anyone visiting this fantastic town and beautiful area of Colorado!

I stayed here for a night, and couldn't have been more impressed and satisfied with their service, location and amenities. Not only is it exceptionally clean and comfortable, it's actually luxurious! The beds are amazing - worthy of a 4 star hotel. And the breakfast serving is not to be missed - it's an exception meal - better than anything...

We first visited Crested Butte in 1993 and stayed at a local B&B. We quickly fell in love with Crested Butte's laid back vibe and spectacular surroundings. We returned to Crested Butte this past August during the Arts Festival and had the good fortune of staying at The Ruby. Our fond memories of Crested Butte were rekindled due in large...
