The wife and myself, plus Bailey the Dog (yes, they are dog friendly) found the property to be very laid back and comfortable. There is a woodburning fireplace in the lobby, a snack available (cookies or brownies) in the kitchen and an ice maker. Parking is available in the front and rear of the building and Chris will explain the alternate parking schedule. The Twin Buttes room has a comfy queen size bed and a couch plus a private bath with shower. Extra blankets, bath robes and a space heater were also in the room. The rooms were quiet, unless the neighboring room decides to shower at midnight (minor annoyance).
As most reviewers have noted, Chris in the consummate host: full of local information and recommendations, weather savvy, there when you need him and just a phone call away if he is not on the property. And the breakfasts? Well thought out and prepared, with Chris serving and describing each dish.
The hot tub, located on the back deck, was welcome after a day of winter activities. The property is located a block from the free Ski Area Shuttle and is about a 10 minute walk to the center of town. The hiking trail to Mt. Crested Butte starts just at the end of the block.
Gracious hospitality and convenient location makes the Purple Mountain Lodge a strong recommendation.More
