My wife and I had a great time at the Purple Mountain Bed and Breakfast. Chris is an excellent host full of knowledge about the area from great biking trails, hikes, off roading spots, scenic drives, and most importantly Crested Butte's plethora of great places to eat. Chris makes killer breakfast each morning and the beer tasting at 5pm is not to miss. Also you must try the tandem bicycle as a couple!

Thanks for a great time Purple Mountain B&B!

My husband and I stayed at the Purple Mountain B&B for 5 nights during the first week of August in the Whetstone room. The Inn was adorable and the Whetstone room was comfy and roomy. We loved the private balcony that overlooked the beautiful backyard, nearby B&Bs and the very top of Crested Butte mountain. The breakfasts were amazing! We didn't need to eat again until dinner. Chris gave great hiking recommendations (Lost Lake was our favorite-easier hike for those not used to large elevation gains). When there was a scheduling issue with our couples massage they handled very courteously--great customer service. There are bikes available and a hot tub in the backyard. It's an easy walk to nearby restaurants, bars, and shops on Elk. We had a wonderful time!

Although my wife and I have never stayed at a B&B in Crested Butte other than Purple Mountain B&B, I cannot imagine that there is a better one. Our recent stay was our third, and it was as excellent as our previous two stays in past years. Chris Haver is a master of the B&B concept. His attention to detail, warm gregarious personality and excellent breakfasts make for a relaxed, if not pampered, visit. And, besides breakfast, Chris hosts a daily beer social hour with a featured beer of the day along with three or four others that he describes in detail. He also offers wine, if beer is not to your taste. We stayed in Twin Buttes, as we have in the past. Although Chris provides plenty of bikes for his guests, my wife and I found it more convenient to walk the short distance downtown. If there is a complaint, it is with internet connection, but that is a complaint about CB's inadequate internet service and not about Purple Mountain. My wife and I fully intend to return soon.

Dennis - Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It was absolutely great having the two of you back again. I also like the pictures! Beer tasting is always such a great time to catch up with everyone at the end of the day. And you are right about the internet in Crested Butte. It seems like the busier town gets, the slower it is. However, I have some good news. They are currently laying new fiberoptic cable to town and we should have great speeds come October. Take care and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Great location and guests staying were compatible; important when staying at B and B.
Breakfast good though coffee could be prepared by 7 am as advertised. Fun beer tasting one late afternoon.
Room comfortable though our room faced another house next door so although view great of mountain the house next door seemed to always have people within eyeshot. We stayed in the Crested Butte room.
The owner Kris was a very helpful and gave us a good idea how to plan our day.
We would stay there again.

We absolutely loved our time in Crested Butte and our stay at the Purple Mountain Lodge B & B. The use of the bikes, the breakfast, the beer tasting come to mind as a few of our favorite things about our visit.
