Stayed at Crested Butte for our 42d anniversary. Had a nice welcoming note and chocolate covered strawberries. Arrived at the start of the slack season. Had the whole place to ourselves. Many places in the house for sitting and enjoying the view. Trails for snowshoeing were easy to get to although you had to avoid the groomed trails for cross-country...

My wife and I spent 3 nights in early February, and had one of the best weekends ever. The town was buried in snow, and the skiing was great. The Ruby added significantly to this experience. Our room was very nicely decorated and well furnished. The breakfasts were exceptional, and were both filling and unique. They served an awesome fruit...

The Ruby is a wonderful place, perfect for a small romantic get-away! The service we received was excellent, and the breakfast was delicious! The owners were very helpful in providing tips of where to dine, and even helped us arrange our ski outing. We look forward to visiting again!

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,...

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.
