In a sea of expensive ski-town real estate, Colorado's Crested Butte offers a lot of value for the money, despite being one of our top picks for ski towns to visit this winter. While a million bucks in Aspen will barely crack the listings, it goes a long way in this mountain hideaway located an easy 4-hour drive from Denver. Take this 4-bedroom, 3-bath home first built in 1892 and extensively renovated in 2005: for $925,000 you get a walkable, downtown location, a home that easily sleeps 10 people, and updated finishes throughout. While the rooms are small (the whole house is only 1,941 square feet), this typical miner's cabin is steeped in Crested Butte history.
