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 have stayed in several of these condos, and love how spacious they are. This place was clean, and even had snacks waiting for us. We like this spot because of it's location; it is a great place to experience the wonders of Moab. We will definitely return one day.

This is a large, well kept home in the Entrada community in Moab. We were in Moab to scout out some locations in Arches National Park and Canyonlands for my daughter’s upcoming bridal portraits. We travel to this area frequently to hike and love the beautiful surroundings. This home is ideally located for access to Arches and Canyonlands. The main floor and bedrooms are large, as are the bathrooms. I really appreciated how clean the home was and the extra amenities provided-plenty of bath towels, beach towels, and laundry soap etc. were supplied. I always appreciate owners who provide these things as I can’t stand to make an extra trip to the store to buy things that should be provided with a home rental. The kitchen is well stocked as well. This would be a great home for any family gathering. Nice, large, kitchen table for meals, and, if you have kids they would love the easy pool access as the back of the home is directly by the pool area. Just a note-the bedrooms are upstairs, but very easy stair access and large stairwell area. One thing I did mention to the local property managers was to have black-out curtains put in the master bedroom as the pool lights were bright and they did shine through the blinds. That may have been done since our stay, but it would make it easier if you are a light sleeper. This is a wonderful property and we would definitely reserve it again when we return to Moab.

This beautiful townhome is 10 minutes from Arches and less than 30 from Canyonlands. It is modern and beautiful, and filled with every amenity needed and more! Comfortable beds and bedding, stocked kitchen, and the property manager was readily available and checked in to ensure our stay was perfect. Excellent hosts, lovely home, and perfect location. Could not ask for more!

We couldn’t be happier with our experience in Moab, and at the condo! My 7 year old son loved the private kid’s space, we took his Nintendo switch and plugged it in easily for play with his uncle and aunt. It was very comfortable in there, and all were able to spend quality time together. I started with the icing of our trip… I should back up to talk about how comfortable the beds and pillows were for everyone! Plenty of fluffy bath towels were available and the showers were already stocked with soaps and very clean - just like home! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for easy breakfast and dinner meals. We all loved the plates and bowls provided, that we inquired where we could find them for our own homes! We all loved the style of the condo. It was nicely decorated, yet not overdone and very livable with all the comforts. Having the double washer and dryer was so convenient, and we were so grateful for the variety of soaps provided, as well as hangers to hang our dark clothes that we didn’t want to dry in the dryer, AND they provided a floor fan! There really was nothing more that we could have asked for! We loved the location, you can’t go wrong staying here! Next time we will bring our mountain bikes, as well as the jeeps :) I’ll also add that we were very impressed with the recommendations for restaurants that were highlighted in the wall, where we could also check out when we were ready to leave. There is VERY good food in Moab - that was a super pleasant surprise. We are still talking about some of the restaurants from our trip in April 2022 for Easter Jeep Week. We had such a good time that we booked our next trip to stay at this location in April 2023! We can’t wait to visit again!
