As the first guests of Gateway 303, let us just say what an absolute delight it has been to spend our New Years in Crested Butte!  We loved getting up to the sounds of the snowcats perfectly grooming the mountain.  To be able to hop right on the lift and begin our days on the slopes and ski right to our front steps made the trip!  And the condo was wonderful!  It had everything we needed and more.  We made all our meals in and even rung in the New Year with champagne toasts for all! Thank you for opening up your condo.  We hope to return soon.  Happy New Years!

What  a fantastic place to stay and play.  We enjoy Crested Butte in winter and in summer!  We thoroughly enjoy being so close to the slopes and base area.  For future guests, especially if you're new to CB, some of our favorite places to eat are Secret Stash for pizza, The Last Steep for burgers & sandwiches/wraps, Donita's for Mexican food, The Lobar for sushi (even though that's not what we get), but the Kobe beef roll and crack fries are superb.  On the mountain (base area) you can't beat The Avalanche for bar, burgers, appetizers and lots of tv for sporting events.  Ah, one more place, for fine steaks is The Wooden Nickel!

Thank you Jennifer and Geof for opening up your condo for rent. You have a wonderful place!

Thanks to Jennifer and Geof for providing such wonderful, comfortable, and convenient accommodations.  The condo worked perfectly for our family.  We cooked breakfast and enjoyed some of our favorite restaurants (The Slogar and Secret Stash). We even found a new favorite (Ryce).  We had not been here for a few years, but we picked up where we left off.  Not only did we ski, but two of us took our first snowboard lesson.  Tiring but fun.  We really appreciated the hot tub.

Thanks again for the cozy blankets and comfy furnishings!

Awesome condo, will be back for 2014!

February 24 - March 4, 2013

What a fabulous week!  Thank you Jennifer and family for sharing this special spot.  Our family recommendations - Secret Stash - amazing pizza, Donita's - BEST Mexican, Bacchanale - eclectic Italian, Dogwood Cocktail Cabin for delicious cocktails. 

We so enjoyed just hanging out & making dinner here at the condo. Reading by the fire and cannot forget to mention THE HOT TUB!

303 Gateway allowed our family of different ski abilities to meet for lunch and then enjoy some great groomers for afternoon family skiing. We even did some backcountry at Snodgrass Mtn - another beautiful option from the resort.

It's a POWDER DAY so gotta run!

Hi Jennifer.  I just wanted to tell you how wonderful 303 Gateway was! We did make an entry into the book but thought I would give you some feedback directly.  Your linens and beds were super comfortable. Especially the twin beds!! The kitchen was perfectly equipped (I did leave a few spices). The electronics worked great! Having the washing machine was a huge plus! Loved the hot tub - never did get to use the sauna.

Location Location Location and 303 Gateway has it!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.  It was so much nicer and comfortable for our family as compared to the Grand Lodge the year before.  We only went out to eat twice - it was just so comfortable at the condo - why travel?

I hope we will be back next year!! Thank you again for your kind and wonderful service.  

Warmest Regards,


March 8-13, 2013

This was our first time to visit CB and we simply loved it. My son and I have skied together every spring break for the past 10 years and now he is off to college.  Your home gave us a comfortable and convenient place to have those important discussions before he goes out in the world.

You were "world class" responsible to our questions and that goes a long way with me.  Thank you for making your home open to us and see you next year!

What a lovely condo and well-equipped kitchen, just as promised.  The view is superb--almost impossible to get enough knitting done to be ready for an open house.  Wayne only skis when the sun is shining so he was on the slopes 2 of the 4 days we were here.  We'd love to return!

Jennifer, We had a fabulous time!  What a wonderful spot you have!

Yes...we would like to reserve your place again.  I am not sure about the summer yet, but we would love to do the exact same thing for next spring break. Is it too early to do so?

We had a blast! What a great place! Thanks so much for opening up your condo for others to enjoy. We wish we could have stayed the whole week!

Thanks, Jennifer,

What could be better than sitting on the balcony to this condo drinking coffee each morning during perfect weather?  We had a great stay in #303. The wildflowers were beautiful and the July 4th festivities were all fun including the Gothic to Crested Butte 1/3 marathon on July 4th. The condo met all of our needs and the location was great. We hope to return to Crested Butte / Mt. Crested Butte soon and stay here again.

We love how convenient to get at the lifts and back! The weather was awesome with a lot of sun. Sadly, Peggy was sick but she skied sometimes. We love how simple and cosy it is. Thanks so much.

Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay on an amazing mountain. This was our first time to Crested Butte and we were impressed on many levels--from the (perfectly timed) snow dump to the convenience of this condo--it was a trip to remember.

We had an absolute blast. Crested Butte is my new fav town and it helped to stay in such a great place and location.

Thanks again,

I just wanted to touch base after our stay at your condo. We had a great trip and the condo was perfect for us. Great view of the race hill from the deck! The kids had a great four days and the location was very convenient to everything. There is a good chance we will reserve again in the future. 


Best yet from VRBO!

The location was perfect! It was everything we thought it would be. We spent Spring Break there and the weather and snow were Great! The condo was very comfortable and the best part was how handy it was to the lifts and everything else. If someone got cold or hungry, it was so easy to just ski to the condo and go grab a sandwich, sunscreen or more clothes or whatever we needed. The heated garage was a huge plus and so was the elevator! No lugging luggage up and down stairs! It was so comfortable that my wife sat on the balcony on one of the warm sunny days that we had, drank her coffee and watched everyone skiing by. Our 13 year old daughter, an avid skier, took snowboarding lessons and "Mom" could watch her lessons from our balcony! We also were pleasantly surprised to get to meet Jennifer and Geof while we were there, oh and Thank you for the bottle of Wine!!! The new Table will just make your condo even more comfortable. Maybe we should go ahead and reserve it for "Spring Break" next year?? There is so much to do in Crested Butte and you will not be disappointed in this lovely condo!! We will be back!

For our return trip to 303 and Crested Butte, we had hoped for fall colors and some snow. Gosh, did Mother Nature deliver.  The aspens were beautiful when we arrived and throughout our stay. We also had snow for the first half of our stay followed by sun and beautiful blue skies for the second half of the week. We rented a jeep in town and got to do several of the area passes. Kebler and Ohio were both amazing. Trail running on the Butte was also a highlight of the trip. We had great food at all the recommended spots and the Secret Stash was as good as we remembered. This was our third trip to Crested Butte, two in the summer during the wildflowers and now fall. We can't wait to return in the winter. Once again, we enjoyed the condo and especially the upgrades since our last visit.

Dear owners,

Wow, what a perfect ski vacation! Three of us made it on 12/20 in perfect sunshine. As we drove in to Crested Butte, the snow started and didn't stop until two days (and two feet of powder) later! Unfortunately, our second car load drove over from Denver in the storm and wrecked over Monarch Pass (they made it ok and unharmed, albeit a little shaken up). Our second day of skiing included a foot of powder everywhere! The third day was clear, so we took many photos, enjoyed perfect conditions on the double blues and blacks, and relaxed for a bit at the ice bar.

The condo was great. We cooked almost every meal in (so we enjoyed the full kitchen). Everything was exactly as stated on VRBO. We will be using the website again for future vacations (hopefully back here in the near future). Thank you for renting out your lovely condo.

Happy Holidays,

The location was fantastic. It was a warm weekend in Mt Crested Butte, we had plenty of warm sun shining into the condo all weekend. It was extremely easy to get onto the mountain, you can ski out the front door, and then come back and go immediately into the hot tub. Great views, the sun would rise each morning over the mountain. It felt great to sit outside each morning and drink coffee while taking in the sun. There were five of us staying at the condo and it was more than spacious for that number. I would gladly book this condo again...

The view was breathtaking! Your condo was lovely and well supplied. Thank you for sharing your "home away from home".

We fished on Blue Mesa Lake and took in all the beauty of this part of CO. It was interesting to hear bats around 4:00 a.m. and see deer standing and grazing peacefully.

The hot tub was relaxing. We appreciated all the info you have available. It was very helpful.

What a great week we had in beautiful CB! Tons of SNOW-- great skiing! We had a blast. We loved Secret Stash pizza-- get the Notorious Fig-- I will dream about it. We splurged on Prime-- very good. Finally, a Christmas sleigh ride to Uley's for dinner just made our Christmas.

We are the -------'s from South Bend, IN. We were here for a college visit for our son Jackson. WSCU is an awesome school and I am proud to say that Jackson will be attending in the fall. Our daughter, Savannah, a college student at I.U. Bloomington was supposed to fly into Gunnison on 1/20/16. Unfortunately, her flight was cancelled because of a snow storm. She was rerouted to Montrose and finally made it to CB around midnight. We had 6-10" of fresh powder on Thursday. My husband (Buck) and Jackson had a private guide named Sis who took them on many gnarly bowls & runs. We had a fab dinner last night at Lil's. The location of the condo could not have been better. Jennifer, you were a pleasure to work with.

Two southern chicks coming back to our favorite ski area -- Haven't been here for a lot of years but it's still awesome. Your condo is the bomb -- exactly what was on VRBO. We really loved the ski-in/ski-out and the views -- Thanks for helping make our "girl getaway" a memorable one!!

We've been coming to CB since 2000. We have stayed at the Gateway before and love the location of this complex. This unit is much more updated than the other one we stayed in. This was our daughters' last spring break. They took turns skiing morning and afternoon with me. My wife, Debbie, didn't get to ski this time because of a knee injury. She read, practiced on our Casio keyboard for a wedding song she will be playing in a couple of weeks and enjoyed the great views from the condo. The temps were warm all week from the upper 30's to near 50 degrees. One morning we got between 1 + 2 inches of snow right before we went out. Cassidy and I did bumps all morning. That little bit of snow made them much more manageable. My back was sore the next day but so worth it. We had a great time here. It was a last minute decision to come up here and I am so glad we did. Jennifer was great to work with and everything in the condo was better than described. Thanks for opening your home away from home for us to enjoy. It made everything that much better!

What a wonderful place this is! The condo is wonderful and equipped with everything we needed. The views from the decks are awesome and the surrounding roads and trails are simply breathtaking!

If we bring our whole family back next summer we'll definitely be in touch. 

And we really appreciated the early snow...we don't see much of the white stuff in Alabama and certainly not in September!

Thanks for everything. You were a joy to work with.
