Purple Mountain Lodge

4.8 on October 08, 2015

We stayed in the Purple Mountain Lodge this year when the aspens were their full glory. enjoyed every minute of it and return soon. Chris and his small staff are are attention to detail people who go above and beyond to make your stay a memorable one. Chri's knowledge of the town and the area around Crested Butte helps make your stay even more enjoyable.

Very nice place with a great, knowledgeable owner. I definitely recommend the place to anyone looking for a nice place to stay with really great breakfasts. Close enough to walk to town which we did nightly. The owner and the house dogs are a plus!

A perfect night in Crested Butte

It was my companion's first time in Crested Butte and the accomodations at the Purple Mountain Lodge helped capture the essence of the town. The location is convenient to both the mountain and the town while still removed from the hustle and bustle of the main streets.

Such a great B&B! Chris and Mekaylah make the stay truly enjoyable. Chris has a ton of information on the town from history to hot spots and helped map out the perfect hike. We can't wait to go back.

Chris loves the town and will make sure you get everything out of it that you want, especially if you're an active traveler. Great breakfasts and a clean, comfortable place to stay. Don't miss the hot tub or a massage to wrap up your busy day.

About the innkeepers

Chris moved to Crested Butte from back east to start a Bed and Breakfast in the summer of 2003. After vacationing in Crested Butte for years, we--like so many others in Crested Butte--just had to make this adventure paradise our home. We love any sport that gets us outdoors and Chris trained to cook under a nutritionist. We love sharing this wonderland we live in with our guests.

Signature Dish

Banana Nut Belgium Waffle
Always a favorite, the Banana Nut Belgium Waffle is a dish prepared the traditional way the night before to allow the yeast to rise. Served with a banana topping, side of sausage, a fruit parfet, Orange Juice, and plenty of coffee and tea. And of course Real Maple Syrup!
