Established in 1939 and part of the original ski area, Pioneer Guest Cabins is the only cabin resort in Crested Butte. They are uniquely located inside the serene setting of the Gunnison National Forest but only eight miles away from downtown Crested Butte. With only eight cabins spread out over many acres, the Pioneer affords a feeling of privacy not often found at other cabin resorts. Set in the beautiful Elk Mountains and along pristine Cement Creek, you’ll find yourself nestled in fir, spruce and aspen groves at the base of the towering Cement Mountain.
These luxurious rustic log cabins in the woods don’t have TVs or in-room phones (so that you really get away from it all) but they do have modern bathrooms — with showers only, fully equipped kitchens, handmade wood furniture, and cozy down comforters on the beds. Each cabin also has a propane heater and a wood-burning stove or fireplace.
With two beds each, the four smaller cabins were built as part of a historic ski resort that closed in the early 1950s. The four larger cabins, built in the late 1960s and early 1970s, have three beds and more of a modern feel than the historic cabins.The other terrific amenities include:
- Complimentary firewood
- New Mattresses
- Antique furnishings and decorations
- Bathroom with linens
- All necessary cookware and cutlery
- Coffee maker
- CD Player
- Charcoal Grill
- Access to free wi-fi internet in office
- Free local and long distance calls from office
- Access to book, game and video library
- TV/VCR available for rent
Overall, you will find these cabins to be immaculate, cozy and absolutely charming! All units are nonsmoking.
With the Pioneer’s locale, the cabins provide easy access to a full slate of outdoor adventures. You can spend your summer days at the Art’s Fair or Wildflower Festival followed by delectable cuisine at one of Crested Butte’s many outstanding restaurants. You can also see the “Wildflower Capital” of Colorado from your mountain bike or nearby hiking trail followed by a relaxing evening with family and friends!
If you’re here in the autumn, the days are crisp and blue, aspen groves abound with brilliant fall colors and there’s a quiet solitude. During the winter months, you can ski and snowboard to your heart’s delight through the world-class terrain of Mount Crested Butte. Or you can explore the vast wilderness on snowshoes or cross country skis with trails right from your cabin door. Any time of year, your stay at the Pioneer Guest Cabins will be special, rejuvenating and will be sure to have you planning your next year’s family reunion or romantic getaway here!
