Historical Traveler Reviews The Nordic Inn Crested Butte
Friendly Little Lodge
If your looking for a comfortable place to stay, with the friendlist people, look no further. The Nordic Inn sits among the high rise condos like a island. The Inn is clean and quiet, with a nice lounge area to converse with other guests. The owners Judy and Allen join the guests for morning breakfast, as if everyone is family. We would certainly return.
What a find! Our room was clean and comfortable with a friendly staff. A lovely breakfast is provided in the morning. The free shuttle bus is only a few steps away to take you to the town of Crested Butte (However the owner himself gave us a lift on the way down!) Quiet and pretty, it's one of the last few remaining independent places to stay at in Crested Butte. Two thumbs up!
The best Inn in the West. We wish there were more old Inns like the Nordic Inn.
The Nordic Inn is a beautiful blast from the past. Living in Vail we so miss these old Ski Inns.
I am so pleased Allen Cox has decided to honor days gone by and keep the old look. Allen was so delightful to visit with.
We keep coming back
We've stayed at the Nordic Inn several times now, both in the main building and the detached cabins. The rooms haven't been updated in a while, but that is more than made up for by Alan and Judy and the great service. There is a great sledding hill just steps from the inn, and the ski slope is only a few minutes walk. There are good places to eat within easy walking distance as well. We always look forward to going back, and would never think of staying anywhere else.
Great Place. Good People
A very friendly people you will find. Business runs very well when owners always at shop. Thanks Allen and Judy. You gave us a meaningful and peaceful vacation
The Nordic is Your Ideal Spot
I have skied all over the greater northern U.S.. When the snow is good there is no better mountain than C.B.. While on one of the most techniqual, yet personal mountains in Colorado the best place to stay is the Nordic Inn. Depending on your expertise, C.B. could be your perfect winter experience. From horse drawn sleigh rides, to deep powder skiing at Irwin Lodge, the C.B. area is one of the most complete Colorado experiences you'll ever enjoy. Again, I advise you to stay at the Nordic Inn. Allen and Judi go out of their way to ensure a fantastic experience for all that make their way to the beautiful southwestern colorado. You can even get a great deal on a personal ski house.
This is a warm, friendly place to stay! Judy Cox was very kind in greeting us during breakfast, and recommending a beautiful 8 mile hike to Copper Like via Judd Falls. The breakfast is very simple and healthy (toast, mueslix, coffee, hard boiled eggs). Although our room was somewhat small, and not renovated, its location near the mountain base and the friendly service were great. If you want to stay in town, the Elk Mountain Lodge looked very nice with recent renovations!
Nordic Inn - A Quaint & Friendly Place
The Nordic Inn is in a great location - a 2 minute walk from the ski hill. It is very quaint, and I immediately felt at home, due to the friendly innkeepers (Judy and Allen Cox). It was nice to have continental breakfast each morning in the breakfast room, or sit near the fireplace where people play checkers or read magazines. It was a very comfortable stay.
We stay at the Nordic for a week in the off-season every year. Alan and Judy Cox are delightful hosts and very helpful. The rooms are a bit small, but Crested Butte isn't a place to spend time in a hotel room and the lobby is a great place to lounge and meet other guests.
The bad: no ice was available on the premises (we had to get in the car and drive down into town to get some), no coffee was available until after 7:30 in the morning, the room was much, much less than we expected, the quaintness was overshadowed by the rudeness of the 2 employees (or owner?) we encountered while we were there. We felt as though we were bothering them from the moment we got there. The good: it is a small, locally owned inn. I don't think that I would recommend it to anyone; it was just OK. But for the price, it should have at least had coffee and ice available. We will not stay there on our next visit. It was the most disappointing lodging of our week in Colorado.

Day 22. It was wonderful to wake up to the sun and still be in stunning Aspen with Darren. We had the most amazing fresh breakfast and then I whooped his butt in pool and beat him two games to none. He was pretty upset after that and refused to speak to me for two minutes until he regained his dignity lol. I got back on his good side by having Catalina (a friendly waitress at the hotel) put in a special ...

So, up until this point, I have just been journaling about trips we have taken outside of our home state of Colorado. However, there have been such amazing weekends that Keller and I have been blessed enough to experience, that I feel they also need to ...
... rough around the edges compared say to Tahoe City. The most notable thing that day in Crested Butte was that the main street through town had been painted blue. Budweiser had made a deal with the city for a promotional event and parade the day before. I guess blue is their color. We were sorry that we had passed up the chance to see Black Canyon National ...
Drove up to Aspen to see Richard Ford my grandson. Had dinner and walked around Aspen went to bed and drove back to Centenial to stay with her until Tuesday Morning.
Richard showed us around the town. Richard knows at least a dozen beautiful girls who we met around Aspen.
... down, down, down back to the nearby city if Cortez. Everywhere we stopped we were soon surrounded by a bus load of a French tourists. Cortez was our brunch spot today where we forced to eat lunch next to a bunch of rude English kids swearing and doing impressions of American accents. After enduring this we headed north along CO-145, this section being called the San Juan Skyway. It heads right past the town of Dolores up and over the San Juan range of the Rocky ...
