Our house is located on 60+ acres along Trout Creek. Nestled into the hill above the Creek valley, wildlife watching – deer, elk, fox, raccoons, ducks, sandhill cranes, etc. – makes mornings and evenings such a pleasure! You can sit on the deck, enjoying the view of the Trout Creek Valley with your favorite drink, before making dinner in the well equipped kitchen. Saddle Mountain and the Sleeping Giant landmarks are right out back! There are 4 bedrooms, the big loft, the living room, and a really big family room to accommodate sleeping for 15 people in beds (more floor space for the big groups). A computer desk, game table, and TV in the family room are the perfect setup for fun with satellite television and high speed internet.
There is room for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing right down below. We are right down the road (less than 5 minutes) from Saddleback Ranch activities, only 10-15 minutes away from downtown Steamboat, and 15-20 minutes away from the ski hill where there is free parking and shuttle. So easy to get where you want during the day or for an evening out, yet enjoy the seclusion and quiet of the country life.
Trout Creek Lodge has three levels and over 3000 square feet of expansive, log and exposed beam ceilings. This classic mountain architecture can accommodate your big gathering of family and friends, or you can take the option of securing one or two levels for smaller groups and romantic get-aways on special occasions! The upstairs has a beautiful bedroom with TV armoire, full bath, and a loft with a single bed and bunkbeds, a game table and TV. The main floor has the kitchen, dining, powder room, and living area with fireplace and great picture windows overlooking the Trout Creek Valley. The master bedroom and bath are also on the main floor with a jacuzzi tub big enough for two, and a big spa shower with endless hot water for after all your daily activities. The downstairs has a large living area with a computer desk, game table, TV, comfy furniture, and a set of tucked away bunkbeds. There are two bedrooms with bunks and single beds that sleep 3 each, a full bath and wash room with additional vanity and sink. Plenty of room for large groups!
