The summer is the ideal time for a Crested Butte family vacation, offering you the chance to reconnect with nature and your family. If you are planning a vacation to Colorado this summer, you’ll want to get ahead of the crowds and think about booking your accommodation and planning your trip as soon as possible. Our team is here today to share some of our top tips for a Crested Butte summer family vacation, including where to stay and what to do while you are in the area. We’ll be on hand at any time to assist you with booking your vacation and to help you find the perfect accommodation option in the area for your family.

 

Choose a Vacation Rental With Space to Relax

The summer months are a great time to visit Colorado, but you won’t want to be cramped up in a hotel or resort room during your stay. Instead, we recommend looking at Crested Butte vacation rentals by owner, which will offer you the chance to spread out and relax. If you are planning a family reunion this summer, which we know many people are after the recent pandemic, you’ll have space for all of your extended family.

 

When you take the time to browse through our site for inspiration for your Crested Butte family vacation, you’ll notice that we offer a fantastic property that can sleep up to 22 guests over seven bedrooms. Even if your travel party isn’t quite this big, you’ll appreciate having the extra space to spread out and enjoy yourselves. With incredible views and spacious accommodation to enjoy, you’ll find this is the perfect base for your Crested Butte summer family vacation.

 

Experience the Summer in Colorado

June to October is generally considered to be the best time to visit Colorado, as it’s the warm season. The snow will have melted in the mountains by this time, so it’s a great season for hiking. Consider visiting the Rocky Mountain National Park, Mount Bierstadt, or Mount Elbert. If you don’t fancy being quite so active during your Crested Butte family vacation, then hop in the car and drive through some of the higher areas. You’ll be blown away by how beautiful Colorado is at this time of the year, which is why it’s one of the most popular times to visit with travelers from across the country.

 

Summer Events in Colorado

Another reason that we’d recommend searching for Crested Butte vacation rentals by owner during the summer months is that there are far more events and activities going on during this time of the year. After the winter, both locals and visitors are excited to make the most of the summertime, so you’ll find each weekend there’s something going on for you to enjoy. Before traveling to Colorado, make sure you search online for what’s going on in the area you are staying in. This will help you to make the most of your time here and immerse yourself in the local community during your stay.

 

Prepare for the Hot Summer Weather

While the winter in Colorado can be brutally cold, you’ll find that the summer can often be a huge challenge as well due to the heat. In certain areas, you’ll find the temperature reaches up to 100°F at some times of the year, especially near the Front Range and Western Slope. This is a dry heat, so while you may not feel like you are sweating as much as in humid areas, you’ll still need to ensure anywhere you stay has good air conditioning. Keep hydrated when you are out and about for the day and look after young children in this heat. We always recommend taking a break in the afternoon during a Crested Butte summer family vacation so that everyone has a chance to cool off and rest before heading out again in the evening.

 

Book Well in Advance for a Crested Butte Summer Family Vacation

Summer is one of the most popular times of the year for traveling, so you’ll want to make sure you start planning your trip now. Both transportation and accommodation prices will rise as you get closer to the date of your trip, so we recommend checking out what’s on offer to you now. The earlier you can book your trip, the more likely you’ll be able to secure reservations for restaurants and activities you’d like to do on your trip. Don’t be surprised if some of the most popular spots in the area are fully booked if you plan a last-minute trip, as many people travel here each year, returning to the same places they enjoyed previously.

 

Enjoy Spending Time in Nature

One of the top reasons to book a Crested Butte family vacation is to enjoy some time in nature. If your kids and teens spend all of their day in front of a screen, this is the perfect chance to reconnect with one another and see one of the most beautiful parts of the country. Make sure you plan activities that will allow you to spend time outdoors, hiking and exploring the stunning scenery here. Kids and teens of all ages will certainly never be bored in Colorado during the summer, where there are activities to suit everyone’s interests.

 

A Crested Butte summer family vacation is one of the best ways to spend some quality time with your family and friends this year. We highly recommend booking your accommodation and transportation as soon as possible if you are looking to travel in the next couple of months, as you’ll find that things get booked up very quickly during the peak travel season here. The more you can plan in advance for your trip, the less likely you’ll be to miss out on some of the best things to see and do in the area. Our team will be on hand at any time to help you with booking our vacation rental home, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today.

We had a great time in Moab! This townhouse was perfect for our family of 10. Plenty of room for everyone! Beds were comfortable! One of the things we moms appreciated was that The house was equipped with Everything! Towels-plus extras and pool towels, ketchup, baggies, fans, basic seasonings and sugar, coffee makers of all sort, plenty of kitchen gadgets, extra bedding for the air mattresses, you name it! The kids loved being right outside the pool and the two sets of bunk beds. We also appreciated TVs with fast internet/streaming abilities as well as cable. The outdoor rock chairs are a little wobbly and cushions are shredded but we still enjoyed the warm night and the gorgeous views! Location was great and within 5-10 min of shops and grocery store. We really enjoyed our stayed and would love to come again if we venture out back out to Moab.

We had a blast during our stay! The house was roomy enough for 8 adults, was well stocked to accommodate cooking and other needs, was super close to the pool and was just a short bike ride away to town. It was perfect for our family get away to the National Parks.

This is the most clean Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. The house is extremely stunning and cozy. It’s so we’ll cared for and clean that the sheets smelled like Softener. The amount of detail in that house has is something to really appreciate. The movie theater is wonderful alongside with the pool. Oh! And it’s fully stocked with everything you need . This house was one of the best. Looking forward to stay here again in the future. Everything was smooth and communication with the host was great 10/10

Upon arrival we were thrilled with the cleanliness of this unit! I have never been in a rental cleaner than this! Not one stray hair or fuzzball could be found. This rental has anything and everything you need! The kitchen is fully equipped with any small appliance you would need, a multitude of cooking spices, oils and nonstick spray. Aluminum foil , sandwich bags, sharpies and batteries were even available! The beds, couch and furnishings were comfortable and felt great after our long days exploring the area. Even the 2 foldaway beds were a hit with a couple of our teenagers. In the garage we were happy to have available a bike repair stand and multiple bike tools, including a standing pump and wrenches. Also available in the garage was a giant Jenga set and a cornhole set that our teenagers had a ball with having nightly tournaments. It’s perfectly located in my opinion. It’s a quick bike ride or drive to town and to area attractions. We were primarily there for mountain biking, but also visited Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park. We also took a rafting trip on the Colorado River. This was the best trip we’ve had in years and that is mostly due to this rental! We had no issues and no complaints! Great job hosts! You are truly making vacation dreams come true!

Stress free vacation! All the family was able to be together in one location. Normally we have a caravan of travel trailers where everyone goes and hides to get out of the heat. Being able to eat together, watch movies together and get on the razors and ride right to the trails made all the difference. My grandkids didn't want to leave, neither did my nieces. They loved the pool and bike ride to the yogurt shop. Perfect location, tons of parking for several trailers, excellent customer service and very clean. I would stay a hundred times more!

We booked this house to come together for my daughters 8th birthday celebration at the lake, and wow were we impressed! Beautiful home, very modern minimalist style. All amenities provided! No need to bring toiletries they have the best products! The kitchen is fully stocked, you’ll have enough dishes for 20 plus! Exceptionally clean! The showers are like a spa, and they have soft water so, you come out with super soft skin. The backyard is an oasis, for all ages. The kids and adults can all enjoy at the same time! You will love this place. It’s close to the lake and the AC is always at the perfect temp! We will be booking this palace in the future for sure!!!!

This property was everything it was described as. Spacious, clean, great spaces for gathering. We stayed 3 nights here with 21 people and we had a blast. About a ten minute drive from the “downtown” area of lake Haveasu. I couldn’t be more pleased with the property. Overall it made our trip and we had a wonderful time. Would absolutely return!

We all loved our visit to Moab. It was comforting to come back to this place after a day in the elements, feeling like we were luxuriating after working out hard. This place is well stocked. From the kitchen appliances, cookware and even condiments to the linens and bathroom soaps and lotions, we kept commenting that this was the best stocked vacation rental any of us had experienced. Having the garage to store our bikes and other gear made it easy to come and go. The team we texted with about questions or reports about problems were always responsive and accommodating. We recommend this place without question.

Beautiful, clean home with perfect location. Everything was 5 minutes away. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. Communication was incredibly prompt. The blender was broken and after letting the hosts know, they had it replaced within the hour without even being asked, which was super appreciated. We highly recommend!

We had a blast! Totally exceeded expectations! This property is really a big “compound” with two houses. Super clean, comfortable and spacious. It has a luxury resort feel, which made for an incredibly relaxing weekend even with a really large group. There are so many places to sit and relax with the group or on your own. Coolest amenities we liked were: **The pool and hot tub - pool has a waterfall plus it was heated and big enough for our large group. Gorgeous place for a night time swim. **Movie & Game Room - loved the movie-size projection screen. Great for watching football while playing pool, air hockey, etc **The private electric gate - has a door opener and gate that lets you drive several cars right up to the doors in between the two houses plus 2 garage parking spots. Very convenient for unloading and for securely parking a boat trailer or RV. This house was immaculate and well taken care of. Definitely coming back next time we’re in Havasu. Highly recommended!
