Overview

Steamboat Springs Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

JVT is a group of nine, connected, two-story houses built of cedar and brick, of which ours is the largest. It is located on the mountain and it is a shorter walk (about 100 yards) to our ski-in/out point than the walk from any public parking to the gondola; check out the comparison in photo 21. We employ a local concierge service to assist our guests and to deal immediately with any problems. We accept all major credit cards.

Our unit is a two-story, end-unit with three bedrooms with queen beds, including a loft bedroom with a folding wall for privacy. On three sides of the living room, two-story, floor-to-ceiling windows rise to a beamed, cathedral ceiling. There is a glass-front, wood-burning stove in the fireplace, a full kitchen with tile floor and counter tops, and upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, one with a tub and powder room, and one with a shower stall. A spiral staircase beside the 'wet room' entrance foyer leads up to the second floor. The entrance foyer has a rack for your skis.

The ambience is spacious, bright and comfortable. The furniture is upholstery and oak. There is HDTV with cable, a DVD player, a stereo Ipod docking station and free wireless internet. The three bedrooms with queen beds and a sofa bed in the living room make it ideal for one or two couples with kids or three couples. It can sleep six comfortably, or eight using the sofa bed.

The nine homes of JVT are occupied by full-time resident owners, with a few such as ours being rented when we are not in residence. We have owned it since 1975 and plan to retire there one day.

It was one of the first dwellings on this part of the mountain, and was originally ski-in, ski-out from the front door. Construction of roads and buildings on the land we used to ski now requires a walk of about three minutes down the road to a ski-in, ski-out point.

Steamboat is one of the finest all-round ski areas in the US, with terrain for all abilities and wonderful for families. Excellent tree and powder skiing and large areas for intermediates and beginners. Come and enjoy it!

About Ernie Kent

Ernie and Jamie Kent live in Maryland but plan to retire to Steamboat one day. At present they run a family website development business. Between them they have six children.

Ernie Kent purchased this condo in 1975

Why Ernie Kent chose Steamboat Springs

Ernie discovered Steamboat while attending a conference in 1974, and fell in love with the ski mountain. The next year he began looking for a place to buy at Steamboat and discovered JVT. Over the years JVT and Steamboat have become home while his 'real' location moved around the country.

What makes this condo unique

JVT is a three minute walk to the second gondola tower where we ski down to the gondola, and where we ski back at the end of the day to walk 3 minutes back to the condo. This spot is accessible to all levels from the beginner's slope. It's actually a shorter walk to our ski-in/out point than the walk from any public parking to the gondola - check the comparison in photo 21.

It's also a short walk from JVT to the end of our road where a free bus stops every 20 minutes. JVT has free off-street parking, and Longthong Road is heated concrete for safe, easy access in all weather.

Our exceptional family ski vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family had one of our best vacations ever in this fabulous Steamboat Springs condo! From the cozy fires at night, to the spectacular views of the winter wonderland surrounding us from floor to ceiling, to the spacious kitchen and ample room for all of us to spread out or gather together, our "ski lodge" was all we hoped for and more. Of course, we couldn't have asked for better snow for our skiers and snowboarders. It was a slice of heaven! The owner provided excellent instructions and promptly responded to any questions.

Christmas 2013 at Steamboat (first visit)

  • 3 of 5
Our family decided to spend Christmas in Steamboat skiing and enjoying the snow. We live in a warmer climate so this was a real treat to have snow at Christmas. The location was great. Just as advertised, a quick walk to the slopes. Definitely no ski-in, ski-out but within a 10 minute walk (when lugging ski gear). The condo itself had enough space for all of us (2 adults and 3 children). The living room space and windows provided gorgeous views of the snow and outdoors. The only real negative was that the condo itself was fairly dated and master bed was not comfortable. There were lamps that were broken and tables that were wobbly. It really needing some updating. Pictures in the ad were quite a bit nicer than what we experienced in person. But, overall, location was good and it served our needs.

Dirty

  • 1 of 5
This could be a nice property but it was dirty and mold in the bath rooms. I've sent the owner some pictures and hopefully he will take some action, but it is obvious he does visit his property very often by the layers of dirt we found. The circular staircase leading to the second floor is very challenging if not impossible with a normal suitcase.

Owner's Response: My sincere thanks for the photos. The property managers were supposed to have done an in-depth summer clean a few weeks ago, and I have arranged for them to be back in to do it over this weekend! We do not want to tolerate this kind of sloppy cleaning and sincerely apologize for the problem.

Spring Break haven

  • 5 of 5
My family of six thoroughly enjoyed staying at your home for Spring Break. Your kitchen was well equipped and bedrooms very comfortale. We appreciated all your detailed information. The home is so close to the slopes, we enjoyed being able to walk to the gondolas every day and loved the fireplace. Thank you for opening up your home to our family.

Excellent, Cozy Condo!

  • 5 of 5
I visited with a group of 6 in late January and we had a wonderful stay at this Condo! The description and photos of the property are extremely accurate of the rental. The spacious layout was perfect for our group with lots of space to relax and stretch out after a long day of skiing. The base of the mountain is only a few minutes away to walk or ski down to which was very convenient, and there was a free shuttle that helped when going in and out of downtown Steamboat. Ernie was very helpful with the questions we had during our stay and gave some great suggestions of where to go out to dinner when we weren't in the mood to cook. This was my first trip out to Steamboat and I had such an amazing time, I would love to return someday and stay here again!
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us Ernie!
