1181 Gothic is located midway up the “corridor” between Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte just a couple minutes’ drive from the great culinary establishments of Crested Butte and the ski area. It’s also a short distance to the bike trail between the towns and the beautiful Lupine Trail.

Well over 100 windows frame views that are beyond compare. 1181 Gothic overlooks the town of Crested Butte and the upper East River Valley to the south, Red Lady and the Paradise divide to the west, Mount Crested Butte to the East and the Gothic Mountain and the ski resort to the north. Strategically placed windows, doors and interior glass make it seem as if you are floating above the wondrous scenes that surround you. Take a moment and count the views from virtually any room. If the views from the inside out are not enough, over 4,000 square feet of deck allow you to enjoy these from the great outdoors. Be sure to take in the incredible Milky Way at night – you’ll figure out what Carl Sagan was talking about! Use the “Spot the Station” app from Nasa and follow the 200-yard wide station cross the sky at 22,000 miles up – with the naked eye!

Our large, fully equipped gourmet kitchen has plenty of work space for all the cooks in your group. A large double sink, a separate prep sink, a six burner gas stove and double convection oven are laid out with plenty of space to coordinate a scrumptious feast. Dishwashers in the kitchen, downstairs bar and outside kitchen assure that even the biggest of celebration clean up easily. Even hand-washing dishes is enjoyable as you look out over the towering peak of Mount Crested Butte. Unfortunately, with a counter bar overlooking the action, we haven’t come up with a way to keep that crowd of talkers and gawkers out of the kitchen!

While the open design of 1181 is perfect for entertaining, there are more seating areas than you can count where you can get away for quiet conversation while the rest of your group socializes; six are spread out over the public areas on the lower three floors alone.

The Great Room has 26-foot high wood ceilings, a large elk chandelier made especially for 1181, two balconies, floor to ceiling windows and a spectacular river-stone fireplace that rises from the bottom to the top. High quality audio equipment brings you the finest sound. An adjacent glass-walled TV room can be opened for entertaining large groups but also can be closed for 7.1 surround entertainment, without affecting the 270-plus degree views.

Large bedrooms give you space to spread out your gear while tongue-in-groove wood ceilings give a warm and cozy feeling.

The third-floor master bedroom features a tongue-in-groove cathedral ceiling with Casablanca fan, views in four directions, a private sitting area and balcony that can be used for sleeping under the stars in the summer. Wake up watching the moon set over Mount Emmons and, in the fall, the Elk migration. The couch doubles as a queen pull-out for those who want to keep young children close at night. The master bath features a Jacuzzi and large double steam shower.

A library and sitting area, two more bedrooms and a second full bath on the third floor overlook the great room and share its great views.

The southeast bed room is perfect for parents, with a king bed, desk area (in case you need to get a quick email out) and spectacular views of the ski mountain and across and down valley. Close by next door is a kid’s room with two bunk bed sets (a full and twin on each) plus a queen futon. These share a large full bath with a double sinks and a huge mirror that mimics the shape of Mount Crested Butte.

In addition to the large kitchen and open dining area, Great Room and TV Room, the main floor has a laundry room, and what is effectively another master suite with a bathroom and indoor hot tub.

The entry-level floor can be used not only for entertainment, but also as a suite for a separate family. It includes a bedroom with a queen bed where you wake up to a view of Mount Crested Butte, a pullout sleeper in the game room and two full baths, the second with a steam and sauna. The bar and game room area have plenty of space for a family to enjoy each other’s company while still having the ability to mingle with the rest of a larger group.

Downstairs, a bar and game room spreads across the front of the house providing -- you guessed it – great views and space to spread out. You’ll find pinball and shuffleboard bowling provides great entertainment for those of all ages. One of our favorites is the Twilight Zone pinball machine – probably one of the best ever made. We challenge you to get bored of this one! Those who need a little less stimulation can enjoy a ball game or movie on the 70” screen and 7.1 surround system.

For more sophisticated audio/video experience, move to the tiered, soundproofed media room, plop yourself down in a message chair and enjoy the big screen and 200 watt JBL 7.1 surround system.

Or, take the chill off in the downstairs steam shower and/or the sauna. There’s even a well-equipped exercise room if you want to work up a sweat on your own.

Those same big windows that are providing great views are also soaking up warmth on sunny days. Don’t be surprised when it is a toasty 80-plus inside on sunny days when it’s in the teens or twenties outside. Not only does 1181 Gothic boast passive solar heating, but also a large solar hot water array that heats the ground floor, two hot tubs and stores almost 1,000 gallons of hot water. No waiting for a hot shower here!

Take an indoor hot tub or Jacuzzi and watch the fireworks or torchlight parades up at the ski mountain. Snuggle up near the fireplace in the great room and enjoy moonrise over Mount Crested Butte, the lights of Crested Butte and the upper East River Valley. Don’t miss the double rainbows on summer afternoons.

No matter whether the fireworks are on the mountain or downtown, you are guaranteed an awesome seat. Pre-fireworks barbeques are a snap at when you have a bar/outdoor kitchen that seats 12 and tables and chairs for many more. As the evening slips away, heat lamps keep the bar area warm on cool nights, or sing around the huge firepit and watch a movie on the upper deck.

Whether it be country, rock or opera, the audio system is just plain riviting! We’ve collected vintage and modern JBL and Bose speakers and placed them strategically throughout the house. Driven by B&K amplification, there are four different 7.1 surround sound systems with large screen televisions inside the house. The media room, with its massage chairs and 200 watts per channel of amplification has been the site of numerous DVD concerts, movies and more than a few Super Bowl celebrations; someone once told us while watching an Eagles DVD that they had seen the band 3 days prior from the third row and that the show was better on our system.

And if you were ever hanckerin’ for the ultimate “drive-in” movie experience, look no more. Once the sun goes down, the fun cranks up; pull down our 160” projection screen, light up the projector and you’ll feel just like you’re at the drive-in; amp up the 17 surround speakers and subwoofer built into the decking and the experience will electrify you. Enjoy DVDs or Directv from the outdoor hot tub, the fire pit or one of the many seating areas. Even the hot tub has built-in speakers.

The owners have worked full-time from 1181 Gothic since 1996. Wireless connectivity (which is provided) has never been enough for them. Almost every room also has hard-wired Ethernet for quick and dependable connections.

The owners of 1881 Gothic have worked hard and played hard here since 1996, making incremental improvements for their own and their family and friends’ enjoyment along the way. Now, for the first time, they are opening their home to select groups to also enjoy. Even if you only take advantage of a few of the amenities, you will never forget your vacation at 1181 Gothic Corridor.
