From the outside you would never suspect that The Ruby has been voted the best B&B in Colorado. Located within walking distance of town, it's an inconspicuous, simple, rather small house that fits in with every other house on the block. Then you walk inside. Everything about the place is meticulous. In fact, a sign requests that you take your...

I wanted to get my parents a nice stay at a Crested Butte bed and breakfast for thier 61st wedding anniversary. Andrea at the Ruby was awesome to work with ahead of time to have me pay for the stay. With a gift certificate purchase over the phone, the transaction went perfect with all charges as expected and good updates....

Chris will help you with all of your needs....mountain biking trails, restaurants, first aid kit (required after crashing on one of the Ruby's cruiser bikes) and fill your belly with a healthy, organic, local farm breakfast! You will not be disappointed!

My wife and have traveled a lot in our 11 years together including some nice five star resorts. Our experience at the Ruby was the best stay we have ever had. Chris and Andrea have done an amazing job finding out what their guests want. The food was amazing, the room was great and the special details, like free beach...

My wife and I were married in Crested Butte and have been going there a couple times a year for some time now. Over the years we have stayed in virtually every available accommodation in both Crested Butte and Mount Crested Butte. We always stay at the Ruby for at least one of those trips. This wonderful little B &...

The Ruby is awesome! You will love how cozy everything is. Breakfast is delicious--don't miss it! You have easy access to downtown, cross-country skiing and downhill skiing. Also, don't miss out on talking to Chris and Andrea--they are the owners and some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet.

Creste Butte, Colorado is unbelievably beautiful and in the heart of CB resides The Ruby! A very generous Teacher Appreciation package allowed my wife and I to celebrate our aniversary in our favorite little town. The entire B&B was beautiful both inside and outside with extremely clean and cozy rooms. Breakfast was fantasticlly delicious holding us over through an entire...

My husband and I always think we will enjoy a B&B more than a hotel because it is more homey, but many times the quality is disappointing. This is not the case with The Ruby! Andrea, Cassie and Chris anticipate what guests will want to experience. All the touches are there to make the stay very comfortable, even indulgent. The...

Lucky us! We have had the delightful experience of being pampered by Chris, Andrea and Cassie at The Ruby of Crested Butte. From the well-appointed room to fresh cookies, fruits and nuts on the sideboard to comfy robes for the trip to the hot tub to the incredibly delicious cinnamon rolls and apple pancakes for breakfast, we had a thoroughly...

It started with the fresh flowers...noticed them right away in the entry way, along with the smell of fresh baking chocolate chip cookies, and although quickly devoured, the plate was never empty throughout our three day stay. It continued in our room, where we found a dozen white roses. That was representative of the attention to detail throughout our stay....
