Due to an increase of COVID-19 cases in our community, we have made the difficult decision to cease operation for the remainder of summer. Although we know how much your children enjoy our sitters, we feel it is the only way to truly keep everyone safe. Please reach out to us again this winter for your babysitting requests and we hope we will be back in normal operations by then.
Crested Butte, Colorado
We know how important it is to find the perfect sitter while you're on vacation. That's why CB Babysitters has taken the legwork out of researching local babysitters. CB Babysitters is a babysitting referral service and has screened and background checked every sitter on the list to ensure the upmost level of safety. Our preferred sitters not only love children, but have plenty of experience in childcare. Most sitters come from a background of teaching, ski school or camp counseling. All of the sitters on our list are at least 21 years of age and are CPR/1st Aid certified.
Your children are also on vacation and deserve to have a great time!
How it Works
CB Babysitters was created by Laura Gutierrez and Katie Lawn to help visitors of the Crested Butte area find reliable babysitters while parents enjoy the great outdoors or a night out on the town. What started as a group of local babysitters, self-promoting through word of mouth, has transformed into a professional source for parents to quickly find the the best sitter for their children.

Holidays are an exceptionally busy time for babysitters and an extra fee is required to ensure babysitters are treated fairly.
Holiday requests are 100% guaranteed from the time of booking. Full payment is required if cancelled.
Extra Driving Charge
In the instance that a sitter needs to drive further than 12 miles from Crested Butte, your sitter will assess an extra driving charge of $0.50/mile for each mile driven after 12 miles, for their trip to the babysitting job and their return trip.
If you live 20 miles from Crested Butte, the sitter will charge $4 for the extra 8 miles on the way to the babysitting job and $4 for the extra 8 miles on the way back. The total extra driving charge will be $8 to help cover the extra expense of gas and the babysitter's time.
If you should need to cancel your babysitting request, please cancel directly with your babysitter. If cancellation is made with more than 24 hours notice, no cancellation fee is necessary. If cancelled with less than 24 hours of notice, your sitter will request 2 hours worth of pay as a cancellation fee.
Holiday reservations are 100% guaranteed from the time of booking (full payment is required if cancelled).
Babysitters reserve the right to cancel if the child is sick.
