The Ruby is the perfect place to relax after a busy day hiking in the beautiful mountains in Crested Butte. It's quiet and private but also social at the breakfast gathering. Chris cooks a phenomenal breakfast, the French toast was our favorite and the homemade cinnamon rolls are great too! We would love to return again and again.

We recently had a wonderful stay at The Ruby in Crested Butte! The hosts are incredibly helpful and the breakfasts were absolutely amazing! Also, it's a fabulous location in town so you can walk to everything on Elk Avenue. We highly recommend The Ruby to anyone visiting this fantastic town and beautiful area of Colorado!

I stayed here for a night, and couldn't have been more impressed and satisfied with their service, location and amenities. Not only is it exceptionally clean and comfortable, it's actually luxurious! The beds are amazing - worthy of a 4 star hotel. And the breakfast serving is not to be missed - it's an exception meal - better than anything... More

We first visited Crested Butte in 1993 and stayed at a local B&B. We quickly fell in love with Crested Butte's laid back vibe and spectacular surroundings. We returned to Crested Butte this past August during the Arts Festival and had the good fortune of staying at The Ruby. Our fond memories of Crested Butte were rekindled due in large... More

This is truly a luxury B&B. Much to our surprise, we were upgraded at no extra charge to a king suite. The amenities offered can't be beat. Free wine, beer, coffee, tea, soft drinks, cookies and other munchies were made available. The breakfast was an incredible gourmet treat. The linens on the bed were of the highest quality I've ever... More

What a gem! The Ruby is charming, decorated with a cozy yet upscale style. The owners are welcoming with friendly conversation and a table of homemade cookies, nuts, candies and flavored waters. Chris, one of the owners was spot on with restaurant recommendations. I was disappointed that the weather didn't cooperate enough to allow a ride on one of their... More

The warmth and love we felt at The Ruby was the key ingredient to why this place is so remarkable. From the moment we entered, we felt welcomed and right at home.

The Ruby lived up to its great reputation because the owners are simply fantastic. They pay serious attention to each guest, both in terms of helping as a concierge and being attentive to anything that you want in the facility.

We had stayed at The Ruby before, but the experience never changes. We stopped in to see if we could get in and were pleasantly surprised to find out they had an opening. This is worth every penny.
