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...

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...

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 food was healthy and tasty and the ambiance was inviting. The pink cruiser bikes made for some fun excursions around town. They even let us borrow a...

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. Chris is the cook and makes personalized, terrific breakfasts which you don't want to miss. There are bikes to ride...

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. The beds are comfortable, the service impeccable, and the breakfast is outstanding and filling. I look forward to our next visit. It...

This is the second time we have stayed at the Ruby and it is as good or better than ever. The room was quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was delightful and delicious. The reason to stay here besides the above are the owners, Chris and Andrea. They make you feel very welcome and they are extremely helpful with information and...

Just as the ruby stone is known for its “high energy and sense of adventure”, The Ruby B&B, Crested Butte, is known for its high energy, adventure, great food and five star service to the traveler, the destination guest, and undoubtedly the skier in the Crested Butte area. Six rooms welcome the visitors, each with separate bath and with fresh...

This is a charming B&B run by a friendly and engaging couple. Chris and Andrea went to every length to ensure I had everything I needed. From complimentary wine, beer, water in the fridge to fresh coffee brewed and ready early in the morning. Snacks and fresh baked cookies were always available. Breakfast served in the sun-filled breakfast area was...

I wish I could give this B&B a higher rating than TripAdvisor allows. I've never stayed at a better place. This is absolutely my first choice if we come back to Crested Butte. The location is great, a short walk to the main street in town where all the restaurants are. Andrea will make reservations for you at any restaurant...
