Weekend Retreat: The Ruby of Crested Butte

The Ruby Crested ButteThis isn’t your run of the mill B&B! Whether you call Crested Butte home or you have plans to visit soon, take a look at The Ruby of Crested Butte. With just six cozy rooms and panoramic views of the mountains, there’s no better place to base yourself in Crested Butte. 

The Ruby of Crested Butte is perfect for a relaxing getaway, as it can accommodate families of up to six people. Each room features its own unique style, with gorgeous local art and warm colors that give you the warm and fuzzies when the cold sets in. And speaking of being warm, the 1,000-thread count linens will certainly enrobe you in comfort after a long day of hiking, biking or skiing. Oh, and did we mention that pets stay free? That’s right! You can have up to two pets per guest room and The Ruby will welcome them free of charge.

When hunger sets in and you’ve cleared the sleepy dust from your eyes, The Ruby’s breakfast will have you up and at ’em in no time. Chris Greene is the co-owner and executive chef, and has spent countless hours coming up with unique meals that are specific to each guest’s tastes. In fact, the menu is extensive to the point that Greene hopes no two guests will ever have the same meal twice. A quick look at the menu reveals apple brie omelets, French toast, fruit and yogurt parfaits, and more. Don’t miss The Ruby’s signature cinnamon rolls that are baked fresh daily and can be adapted to any dietary requirement (i.e. gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, and so forth).

In the afternoons, guests delight in cookies and other sweets, and The Ruby has mastered the art of caring for guests special requests. Those who have stayed before say that if Greene catches wind that it’s your birthday, don’t be surprised if he makes your favorite birthday cake or drops off a bottle of bubbly in your room. 

Rates vary based on the season, but range from $129 to $249 a night for the king and queen rooms and $199 to $349 a night for the suite.
