Scarp Ridge Lodge
Scale of 90-100
Located in the center of downtown, this chalet-style lodge was once the headquarters of the Croatian Fraternal Union of America. The property has five one-bedroom guest accommodations, which feature exposed wood beams, jute rugs and baths with steam showers and pewter soaking tubs. There is also a bunkroom with a connecting bedroom that can accommodate up to seven children in two- and three-story bunk beds. The Red Lady is decorated with wrought-iron bed posts, tweed curtains and a loft furnished with a desk and chair. All lodgings have in-room oxygen systems that help mitigate the effects of the high altitude and make it much easier to sleep. Though there is no on-site restaurant, the property does encompass an indoor saltwater swimming pool, a gym with a steam room and sauna, and a small bar adorned with framed historical photos of the region. The hotel’s atmosphere of ease and comfort comes as much from the efficient and affable service as it does the lodgings.

The in-room oxygen systems mitigate the effects of the high altitude and make it much easier to sleep.
The isolation of Crested Butte can be problematic if travel issues arise, as they did for us in the form of flight delays and missed connections on both ends of our journey.
Good to Know
Eleven Experience also owns the building next door, called Sopris House. Built in 1882, it is now a four-bedroom inn.
