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.

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.
... good. I tried to drop a line in the water here but it was too dark to concentrate. All I found was a little mouse... No fish. The way I fish nighttime is no good anyway. We just didn't want to pass the huge peaks if the Collegiate Mountains to our east in the dark. Mule deer and twisting switchbacks are no fun. And the $12 camp fee is probably better than the hotels an hour and a half over the mountain pass. It's comfortable, if not a tad cold, and will do. The sun ...
... biking. Our bike mechanic was Jefe Branham, the guy who just won the Tour Divide race. That race is intense, and I am in awe of this guy's achievement. It starts in Canada and finishes in New Mexico- 2,700 miles and 200,000 vertical feet. Jefe completed it in 16 days, averaging 170 miles per day... Many of those miles on isolated dirt trails. He was super friendly and totally willing to talk about the race and let us ...
We woke up and had reservations for a 2 hour horseback riding trail ride on old Snowmass mountain and Hells Roaring. The entire family went and had a unique experience. Although Jordan and Pepijn weren't so fond of the idea of horseback riding - they had a good, even though somewhat uncomfortable experience. We went all the way up this mountain - to the top - where it was the most amazing view of ...
... is now a Costco and a Walmart and the development on the way to Aspen was solid all the way to Basalt. Golf courses and condominium developments everywhere. We counted more than 50 private jets at the Aspen Air and knew the town would be crowded. All of the two story smaller motels along the highway near Buttermilk no longer existed or were now employee housing. ...
