Steamboat Springs Townhome Rental Photos and Description
Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)
ONLY ACCEPTING RESERVATIONS THRU JAN 2015. This beautiful, spacious (2,200 sq ft), mountainside townhouse (end unit) will sleep 10 people without using the living room, will seat ten people in the kitchen, is only 700 yards from the ski area and has its own hot tub on the deck.
Being an end unit there is only one common wall, there are windows on 3 sides bringing in a lot of light, and there is no unit above, below, or behind making it much quieter than most. The three bedrooms are each on a different level and each has its own bath; bedrooms have queen-sized beds with electric blankets, a loft with two twin beds, and a den with a day bed/trundle and a queen-size sofa-bed. The master bedroom has new furniture and bedding and we just recently bought new furniture for the 3rd bedroom.
The large living room (20x15) has newer carpeting and is furnished with 2 sofas, a Lazyboy lounge chair, one other chair, an entertainment center with TV, DVD, VCR, stereo with CD/tape player and an iPod adapter, gas fireplace and wireless broadband internet access. The hot tub is located on the private 15 foot deck right off the living room. It is professionally serviced weekly (before you arrive).
The den (see photo on next page), a separate room off the living room, has its own 20' TV, VCR, DVD player, sofa and lounge chair allowing your group to split up to enjoy different activities (great for kids). The loft also has two Lazyboy chairs offering a third sitting area.
The large, fully equipped, kitchen seats 10 using the oak table and island counter. It is a completely separate room (not a galley), has newer appliances, parquet floor, and a TV. All of the maintenance is handled by our own manager who lives nearby. All basic amenities such as soap, shampoo, tissue, lotion, laundry supplies, 20 sets of towels, all linens, are supplied. Also, each of the three bedrooms has electric blankets. Hair dryers and humidifiers (very important) are in each bedroom as well.
The FREE shuttle bus stops directly outside the unit or you can walk the 700 yards down to the ski area. An added benefit is that we have a SKI LOCKER at the mountain that is free for our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our week was just perfect, I wouldn't change a thing. Your home was ideal for us, well stocked, well layed out and very homey. The granddaughters loved the den with their own tv, games and puzzles. The hot tub was a big hit also. Best of all was the convenience of the shuttle and bless you for the mountain ski locker. We had 5 sunny days, watched the Cowboy Downhill while eating hamburgers grilled outside. You really provided everything. Thanks again.
Gail and I currently live Evansville, IN where I work within the banking industry in an IT role where I apparently specialize in working for companies that will soon be bought (4 moves in 10 years). We've gone from NJ to San Antonio to Charlotte to San Francisco and now Evansville, IN. Quite an eclectic mix of places. Gail is a teacher at the University of Evansville. We are currently 'empty nesters' as our children are essentially on their own. Mark is a working musician in Boston and Stefanie received her Masters in Education from Rutgers University (Dad's alma mater) and is living in Jacksonville, FL working in the Teach for America program.
We love to ski and love to get out to our townhome whenever we can. Ultimately, we hope to make it our mountain hideaway where we will spend 6 months a year and be an attraction for future grandchilden (not yet, though..).
For years, we traveled out west trying different ski areas. For some reason, we always gravitated back to Steamboat. First, we simply love the mountain. The terrain is such that I still need to pull out the trailmap at times even though I've skied here many times. I love that there are very distinct, separate areas and different types of terrain. I remember some ski resorts we've skied, regardless of the trail you started skiing, you would wind up at the very same place - not at Steamboat. Second, we love that it is a 'real' town. Their was a Steamboat Springs before skiing was invented. It's a real town with real people. Lastly, being about 3 hours from Denver, you avoid the day trippers and weekend crowds. I like that as well.
In the few years we've owned it, we had so many lasting memories.
The access to the free shuttle is right outside the front door. The complex has many mature aspen trees ... you just get a wonderful sense of privacy. It's a short 10 minute walk to the base area if you feel like walking and with our ski locker, you won't need to drag ski equipment around everywhere you go.
The summertime was quite a surprise to me. It's simply beautiful. Lots of trails to hike or mountain bike. The golf courses are first rate and the town does a wonderful job with summer events like the summer concert series, food and wine expositions, etc.
