Often overlooked in the battle of “best” ski towns, Crested Butte is a hidden gem in Southwestern Colorado with a population of about 1,400 — the size of some high schools. And while the merits of a town that calls itself “the last great Colorado ski town” may not yet have reached crowds more familiar with Aspen, its real estate listings reflect enough awareness to bring prices into the mid seven figures.

Ravenswood, a 6,000 square-foot country home constructed in 2007, sits on 35 acres with a fly fishing river and unobstructed mountain views. Nestled in the tony (and awfully sprawling) development of Reserve on the East River, the luxury cabin features high ceilings, truss work from reclaimed timber and an enviable location by an elk migration corridor. The $5,500,000 asking price includes access to all development amenities, including an equestrian center, conference spaces and full-time caretaker. Ravenswood is offered by Benson Sotheby’s International Realty.
