This was our second visit to the Ruby, and we will keep going back. When we left, Chris asked me what they could do better...and I could not give him one thing to improve on. Charming hosts, wonderful facility, spotless, excellent food, beautiful location...great attention to all the details. Can't say more. Stay here!

As usual, Chris and Andrea Greene provided me and my husband with a luxurious, relaxing experience. Breakfast did not disappoint, and the calming, comforting environment that they have fostered makes you want to come back again and again. We are already looking forward to our next trip!

We loved absolutely EVERYTHING about our stay at the Ruby. The room was immaculate, cozy, quiet and comfortable with luxuriously soft sheets and wonderful bed, flat screen T.V. and environmentally friendly toiletries. The entire place has such a sweet and welcoming feel, reflecting the down-to-earth nature of the innkeepers Chris and Andrea Greene. We were particularly inspired by the young...

Chris and Andrea have created a beautiful B & B. Lovely furnishings and the morning breakfast is a gourmet feast. Both the owners are well versed on the history of the area, the restaurants and the sights to see. Truly Chris and Andrea are what makes their inn the #1 place to stay when in Crested Butte. My wife and...

We stayed here for our anniversary and had a great time! Andrea and Chris are excellent hosts and make fantastic breakfasts. They are always happy to help you make a reservation or help you plan an activity for the day. Highly recommended! And, the bikes that are available to the guests are a blast to cruise around town on!

The Ruby is truly a gem. Every detail is just perfect. The rooms are charming and oh so very comfortable with every attention paid to cleanliness and special touches. The open areas are warm and inviting. Andrea and Chris are wonderful hosts, offering as much information on hikes and the Crested Butte valley as you would like, making just unbelievably...

This was our third stay at the Ruby, and it was a treat! The room was very pretty, and everything there is always immaculate. There are three highlights of staying at the Ruby. First, Chris makes the most scrumptious breakfasts in the world! This is a definite diet buster! I would walk ten miles for his French toast! Delicious! Second,...

We stayed at the Ruby for one night in June, 2010. We've been to Crested Butte many times but have never stayed here. From now on, its either the Ruby or nothing! Chris and his wife are a great team and are some of the nicest people we've come across. The inn itself is perfect. The rooms are clean and...

Chris and Andrea are a great couple who are so enthusiastic about what they are doing in Crested Butte, which is providing first class bed and breakfast accommodation. Chris has perfected his breakfast cooking, which is second to none and just what you need before a long hike, bike ride or fun on the mountain. Chris took me for a...
