Crested Butte South or CB South as it is known, is a community about 6 miles south of the town of Crested Butte. It is often mistaken for a town because of the number of homes there, but is not incorporated as a town. The neighborhood has many amenities for homeowners and other community members as well. There is a fire station, wonderful playground, hockey rink, tennis courts and ice skating pond. The association also grooms a very nice cross country ski trail area on land owned by the Spahn’s, a local ranching family.
The commercial area has many available lots that have not been developed, but currently has a General Store, Ruben’s New Mexican Restaurant, Little Red Schoolhouse preschool, storage units, Red Mountain Liquor Store, Camp 4 Coffee and Alpengardener Nursery. These businesses are wonderful to have in the neighborhood because they make it so you don’t need to leave to get the basics taken care of.
Properties in CB South are generally less expensive then in town or on the mountain and can provide a great opportunity for locals to own their home or for people living elsewhere to have a property in the area.
