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.

This is a great rental. It was well stocked, clean and in great condition. The layout is great. We were a family of 4 so everyone got their own room and bathrooms had dual vanities. There is another bathroom with shower downstairs that we did not use. This could comfortably accommodate 3 couples; 4 if wouldn't mind using the bunk bed room. The kitchen was well stocked. We only cooked one evening but kitchen had everything we needed including common spices and some olive oil. Condo had shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, hand soap, dish soap and Keurig coffee pods. Condo is close to main part of town so we could have easily walked but Moab wasn't busy during our visit so we were able to easily find parking and drove most places. Cruiser bikes looked to be in good condition but we did not use them. The pool is closed for the winter but the hot tub worked and was well maintained. Garage at the condo was tall enough to accommodate our SUV with topper box and garage opener is included. Property management was by "Empty Spaces Vacation Rental Management." They were very professional and communication was excellent. That part of the experience exceeded a typical "host" for a VRBO. I wish they managed more properties in other locations (they manage some in Crested Butte, Havasu and Grand Mesa). I would absolutely stay at this condo again.

This property is located within waking distance to Main street downtown and is just a short drive to all things fun outdoors. It is very clean and has great amenities. Our kids loved the little play area! They felt they had their own special space away from us parents. This property really has all you need for a great vacation!

This was our first stay in a VRBO and it was exactly what we were hoping it would be. Super quick response from management, very easy process all around. Would definitely stay here again.

We were a group of two families with 4 adults and 3 children (11, 11 and 13). The house is well decorated, very clean and provided comfortable furniture for both relaxing and sleeping. There is also ample parking for up to 4 vehicles (2 car garage + 2 driveway spots). We had two cars, a RZR and trailer all of which we were able to fit at the property. The back patio overlooks a park with several trees which in my opinion is one of the best patio views in the development. Communication with the rental management agency was very clear and made that part of the experience effortless. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property.

We’ve stayed in hotels and condos in Moab and this was our best location yet. The condo is great with enough room for friends and family to all be together and enjoy each other’s company, but with rooms and bathrooms that allow for some downtime. We chose this unit because it was right next to the pool and we had kids with us. Best choice ever. We could be cooking on the grill while the kids (older kids) could swim. The kitchen was very well stocked and there were loads of towels and even games to play. We would come back to this property again for sure.

Awesome stay for our annual family trip! At first glance, it looked small (like the yard and pool etc) but once we got going we found it to be more than enough for our family and we had quite the clan. The pool is great for families with kids because there is a large step/pad on one side where my two year old could walk around and still be in the pool with everyone else. The yard has a fun playground for toddlers, and a nice lounge area where we played games. The house was super clean and comfortable, and great for the family to hang out. Parking galore. Plenty of things we needed like towels and blankets, etc. Great hosts! The location is good too, not far from stores or attractions like the London bridge. Would absolutely stay again if we come back to Havasu!
