Tucked away in the small mountain town of, Crested Butte, Colorado, this colorful, quirky cottage is far from what one might expect a typical alpine home to look like. Built in the 1890s, the Victorian painted lady has peach-colored clapboard with a sky-blue trim and decorative curlicues adorning the gable. It was the cottage’s historic details that first captured the heart of the homeowner—a real estate investor, avid skier, and outdoorswoman—as well as the laid-back, bohemian vibe of the town.
