Short-Term Rentals

Mt. Crested Butte Short-Term Rental Licensing Program

In 2020, The Town of Mt. Crested Butte created a Short Term Rental licensing program.  Any property advertised or rented for 29 nights or less must have a short-term rental license.  If you own or plan to own a short-term rental please review the Mt. Crested Butte Town Code, Chapter 11, Article 2.

As a reminder, when you change your Local Representative, you have 10 days to notify the Town and provide new contact information. Failure to do so could cause your license to be suspended or revoked. The Local Representative Responsibility & Owner Authorization form will need to be completed by both parties. A copy of the Local Representative's driver's license will need to be provided to verify the person lives within 45 minutes of Mt. Crested Butte. Email the completed form and copy of the Local Representative's driver's license to Heidi Sheldon, hsheldon@mtcb.colorado.gov.

If you need to reach the Local Representative of a Short-Term Rental Property, please refer to the STR Business Directory. Type the address of the STR property and press enter to find contact information for the Local Representative.

If you have any questions regarding short-term rental policies or procedures, please contact Heidi Sheldon, Short-Term Rental Officer at hsheldon@mtcb.colorado.gov or 970-349-6632, ext. 106.
