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 7 & 8
Our first shopping day yay!!! Today we decided to hire a car and check out the outlets, Rick's Restorations and Vegas in general. We managed to purchase all of our ski gear and lots of other bargains, even Billy went a little cray cray in Tommy Hilfiger lol!! After a big day of shopping we headed back to the motel to pack our bags for our flight to Aspen in the morning.
Day 8 was pretty much ...
... globe for this.
Some of the original buildings are evident and very well maintained. They are similar in style to the 'painted ladies' houses that we saw in San Francisco. All the local businesses are in the process of putting up their decorations. You have to admit the North Americans do this better than most. It was great to see real live Christmas trees for sale outside the local supermarket. Different types Spruce, fir, etc) ...
... gate and was DNQ. We caught up with her at the finish area and although disappointed, she knew she would learn from the experience. She certainly has a beautiful smile and I am sure she will continue to follow her dream. Greta is supported financially by her family and sponsorship is minimal so please like her on facebook as this will greatly increase her chances of gaining meaningful sponsorship.
Our complimentary lunch today was Tomato and Basil Soup, Green Chilli ...
... course. Once again, to our amazement this was a free community event and there were drinks and nibblies on offer. We really enjoyed the gluhwein and stangely enough the buttermilk popcorn.
The perfect way to end such an exciting day? Fireworks of course, and Aspen didn't disappoint. Multi coloured fireworks lit up the sky and the snow on the slopes of the mountain. A truly spectacular and memorable day.
... our accent and just wanted to show us their store. Huge animals heads on the wall, antlers, thousands of Stetson hats, whips, belt buckles, knives, animal hides, you name it. We enjoyed it!
In the afternoon we were able to wander around the Wax/Ski tuning Room for the World Cup Teams. Was interesting to see the technicians working on the skis and gaining a greater appreciation of what goes into being a World ...
