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.

Today we knew exactly what we wanted to do....drive Independence Pass!! Sarah and Josh had told us how awesome it was so we just had to find out for ourselves!
Independence Pass is only open in the summer so would be closed soon...if you look it up I'm sure it will show you the route but it basically takes you down through Minturn, then through Leadville (the highest city in ...

I have no regret as it has been a long time that I have not spent time with Theo and our duo/trio has been working like an old engine, a little bit of cracky sounds when the exhaustion was coming upon us but otherwise same energy and tolerance ...
Aspen reminded me a bit of Banff, cute little ski/snowboard town with lots of hikes in the summer.
Unfortunately, I did not realize how high up Aspen is (2400m above sea level) and once we started our hike at Maroon Bells, I felt quite dizzy and tired. Turns out I must have had some sort of altitude sickness at 3000m above sea level... That happened on our hike in Santa Fe as well.. well, now I know :)
I recovered quickly and finished the hike at least...
We followed the train tracks for miles, often seeing long trains towing countless tankers carrying oil or cars filled with shiny black coal. And Steve commented that Obama would not approve. At times we were looking at sandy desert land, tan or gray, with sage brush, some a bright silver green and others brown from a lack of water. And often the land looked like a dry river bed. And, if this ...
... 8230; J This past weekend, we had the most enjoyable and relaxing weekend in Snowmass, CO. It was the annual Hot Air Balloon Festival and Pamela and Roy had asked us to join them at their hotel. We are IN! We stayed at the beautiful Viceroy Hotel and had the most gorgeous view of Snowmass Village. We arrived in Snowmass late Friday night- just in time for some happy hour drinks with Gary and Olga in the exquisitely ...
