These bedrooms are equipped with cable TV and two phone lines. Additional bedding configurations include three queen-size beds, four full-size beds, six twins beds, and three hide-a-bed twins. We have ten bathrooms, including the seven master baths, some with hand-painted sinks.

A COMPUTER CENTER with a DELL PC and HIGH-SPEED INTERNET access along with a PRINTER and a FAX MACHINE is located on the main floor for your personal and business needs.

Wireless WI-FI HIGH-SPEED INTERNET ACCESS throughout the Chalet.

We have what is truly considered to be a gourmet kitchen. This exquisite kitchen is equipped with Viking, Kitchen-Aid Architect Series, and Scotsman appliances for your own personal chef or the gourmets in your group or family. It is finished with natural oak floors, cherry cabinets, and imported customized granite countertops and back splashes. No matter where you are in this gourmet kitchen, you will enjoy views of skiers on the upper alpine runs and our spectacular alpine scenery.

Gourmet Work Station Number Three is the Viking six-burner cooktop area with pancake griddle which has a six-burner gas grill (just like Emeril's on the food network), as well as, spice drawers, and utensil drawers. Additionally, this area is fully stocked with Italian and German cookware.

Gourmet Work Station Number Four features a double bar sink with its own built-in Scotsman ice machine and Kitchen Aid dishwasher. The cabinets and drawers in this work station contain champagne flutes, wine glasses, tumblers, and the utensils to create fabulous drinks and hor d'oeuvres.

A personal chef and gourmet catering are also available.

Our spacious great room offers spectacular views of the Steamboat ski area. At the end of the day, relax by the fire while the alpenglow lights up the ski area and the mountains before you.

Our first level offers a large recreation room complete with a sports bar, Kitchen Aid built-in ice machine, Kitchen Aid refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave. Also, on this level is a regulation pool table and a 70-inch big-screen home theater with surround sound giving sports lovers and movie buffs a front row seat. Just outside the glass doors is an eight-person deluxe hot tub with therapeutic massage jets offering you the chance to soak away the exertions of the day.

We welcome families, children, friends, and corporate groups.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tim and Debra:

Just wanted to take a few moments to let you know how much we enjoyed Edelweiss Chalet. The view from every room in the chalet was just breathtaking! Edelweiss Chalet was definitely our home away from home, providing topnotch amenities. The 14 of us truly enjoyed the accommodations and ski in/ski out convenience. We all had plenty of room to stretch out, relax, and enjoy great skiing. Thank you for providing such wonderful accommodations. We look forward to visiting Edelweiss Chalet again.

A delightful ski vacation in a fabulous home submitted April 10, 2015

  • 5 of 5

I am back to work today after a delightful stay at your beautiful home. The house was incredible, we ate dinner at home some nights, grilled on the patio and ate out a few nights. Everything was there that we needed. The beds were very super comfy. I love the embroidered Edelweiss sheets and the Tempurpedic pillows! Wow, what a spectacular TV you have in the theater room! I felt like I could have dived into the ocean on the screen. The heated floors were a treat. The kitchen had everything we needed. We had a tournament playing pool one night and soothed our sore legs in the huge hot tub. With With 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 2 kitchens 10 TV’s and a theater room and hot tub, what more could you ask for? One afternoon after a day skiing, the day after we were paid a visit by a red fox, we were relaxing in the living room and saw three moose come down the mountain behind the maintenance building and cross the road and walk right up your path to the hot tub and back deck. There were 2 females and 1 male. The male stayed hidden but the other two looked like they lived there. In fact one feasted on some buds of the tree and then lay down for an hour or so right outside the window to the left of the living room fireplace. I loved the river stone on the fireplace, the hand painted sinks. I could go on and on. I loved the stained glass lights going up the stairway…. The point is – Eleven of us had a really wonderful vacation in the Edelweiss Chalet. What a beautiful home in a great location. Hopefully, we can come back again another year and hopefully it will be a record snowfall year.

Wonderful week of skiing

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to edelweiss chalet from North Carolina with 3 families- 6 adults and 7 children. The house was perfect with plenty of room for all of us to spread out. The kitchen was the most well appointed I have seen for a rental home and we had everything we needed and more! The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable. The house was spotless. The owner Deb was so helpful and the chalet manager Tobin was excellent. We had a problem getting the gas grill to light and he was there within 10 minutes to help when we called him. The walking distance to Thunderhead lift, which takes you to the top of the mountain, is a huge plus. There is no better location for a ski rental in all of Steamboat. We will be back!

40th Birthday Celebration with Friends

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 40th birthday with a group of friends that included mostly couples but there were a few children there as well. We had such a lovely time! Deb was so helpful in the rental process. The house is located in a beautiful spot. There was plenty of space for our large group. It was easy to cook meals in the spacious and well appointed kitchen. I would definitely recommend this house for a group and would love to come back in the winter to take advantage of the ski in/ski out location.

Perfect Place to Gather with Friends

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends gathered here in August and this home was so welcoming and comfortable we felt right at home and enjoyed every minute. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was a delight to prepare meals in the we dined at the huge beautiful table evey night after appetizers and wine on the deck! The group biked, hiked, shopped, boated, played games, laughed and had the best time possible. We spelt like babies on those comfortable beds and everything was just so lovely. The views are spectacular. It truly is a perfect place to gather! Thanks to Tim and Debra for sharing this beautiful home.

Truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at Edelweiss Chalet in June and it was truly a home away from home! The house is beautifully decorated and the gourmet kitchen was to die for. We had amazing meals here with our family. It was the best sleep we had all had in a long time. The house is immaculate! It is nestled in just the right spot in Steamboat where you can see the most beautiful views. We sat on the deck and just enjoyed the views. We had the best family time here. Every room provided a peaceful and relaxing spot to rest, play cards, or read. This place should be on your bucket list for a place to stay in Steamboat! Absolutely gorgeous and close to some amazing tourist spots. Thank you thank you for an amazing stay. We had everything we needed and it was just like being in a castle! Definitely recommend!!! You don't need to just be here for the winter months, the summer time was just as beautiful!

Best Ski Chalet for a Family... ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Steamboat before, but arrived to the chalet without any particular expectations. We were amazed at the convenience (you can ski to/from one of the key lifts, which is about 5 yards away) and position of the house, which is at the top of a private drive with only a handful of other luxury homes sharing the same road. The house had extraordinary entertaining and relaxing space, enough for an extended family or group of friends would wanted the perfect place to call home during a trip to Steamboat Springs. The bedrooms were all well furnished, sheets and towels were perfect, bathrobes... everything you could want. Including a fireplace in the master bedroom! Also, there is a wonderful hottub which sits just outside of the media room/bar/billiards room where we spent many evenings (though a few just relaxed with a book upstairs in the more formal living room by the fire). The caretakers were very responsive to everything we needed. If you are coming to Steamboat, and you're there with more than a group of 5 or 6, this should be the home you go for.
