Steamboat Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Private Home with 5 Bedrooms & 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Skip the Early Morning Gondola Lines!

This is Steamboat's Premiere 'Practically' Ski In & Ski Out Location.

This home is located at the base of the Thunder Head High Speed four person chairlift which is approx 500 vertical feet above the main base area. This is a Powder Hound's Dream! From our front door you have the option of skiing down a small private trail that connects to a green circle ski run (named Right-O-Way) that takes you to Steamboat's Silver Bullet Gondola OR taking the five minute walk to the Thunder Head High Speed Quad, the preferred choice. From Thunderhead you may also ski to the base area. At Thunder Head you are practically GUARANTEED NO LIFT LINES AS THERE IS NO PUBLIC PARKING AT THE CHAIR LIFT. Best of all this chair drops you off at the same location as the gondola does!

For night life, you are a few minute drive to the Steamboat base area. Where you can enjoy anything from fine dining to pub fare and live music or simply walk around Ski Time Square and enjoy a variety of shops.

Being locals for over thirty years, we pride ourselves in continuing the tradition of Steamboat's warm hospitality. We are more than happy to try to accommodate a variety of services that you may desire.

If you would like to ski other areas we are about and an hour and half to two hours away from Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, Keystone, Winter Park, Vail, Beaver Creek and Copper Mountain.

the perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our vacation to Steamboat. It was the perfect location for ski in/out. Our family of 10 stayed for 7 days and had a wonderful time. It was great for the boys to walk a few yards to the chair lift and then be able to come back for lunch and then out again. Andy and Craig are wonderful to work with and answer your questions and concerns quickly. Craig was great when one of my boys needed tool to fix his snowboard. We have decided to use this property again when we come back to Steamboat if it is available. Great place and lovely home. It has everything one needs for a home away from home. Thanks for the great time!

Great Ski In/Out Place

  • 5 of 5

Every year we come out to Steamboat and stay in a different place, however, this time, I think that we've found the place we will continue to stay in going forward. Andy was great to deal with and was very helpful with everything with booking, etc. When we arrived, Craig was there clearing snow from the roof and help us get situated in the house. He was great at answering questions about the house and the area and we saw him from time to time during the week.

Overall, the house is really nice and has all the amenities that one would need in a vacation home. It is very cozy and warm and inviting and made me feel as though I lived there. We definitely took advantage of everything the house had to offer from the grill and pool table to the hot tub and awesome fireplaces. I can't say enough about this house. The location was great as well and with some good snows, sometimes you can ski down the road to the house (watch out if there are rocks on the road though). The walk up to the Thunderhead lift was less than 5 minutes and you were on your way up to the mid-mountain area where the Gondola drops you off. It was great not having to wait in line at the Gondola each morning.

I'd recommend this house to anyone looking for a great place to stay up on the mountain away from all the condo's down near Ski Time Square. We hope to return next year.

Ski Steamboat

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent ski-in, ski-out location. Very comfortable family home in gorgeous setting. If we go back to Steamboat this would definitely be the place we'd want to stay... Winter or summer, I can't imagine a prettier view. The friendly porcupine who visited every day was a bonus!

Great Location and Excellent Management

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here in February of 2012 and had a great time. The location is awesome - right below the chairlift and it has easy access to come back to for lunch. The pool table and hot tub were great to enjoy after a long day on the slopes. And the manager was very warm and welcoming. We will definitely come back!

Best location ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for families with kids and multiple couples. The bedrooms are all seperated with 3 different levels. The pool table and hot tub provide for entertainment while there. The decks are perfect for grilling out and catching some sun.

If you plan to ski this is the place to stay. You don't have to deal with parking, getting dressed in the parking lot only to catch a bus and walk more in your ski boots. Simply ski out from the deck or walk a short distance to the lift that takes you to the top. Convienent for stopping back by to have lunch or shed a layer.

Definitely recommend staying here in the Winter, but also plan on returning for the summer as the mountain bike trials on the ski area are right in the backyard.

Excellent Management

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here the week before Christmas, 2011. We had a great time and the location is great! Walking a short distance to the lift was so much better than having to wait on the Gondola. You are farther up the mountain and have a head start on everyone else. Ski conditions weren't the best because there just wasn't enough snow! We enjoyed the house, pool table, large TV and coziness. The owners are the managers and they are very welcoming and helpful to work with. If you want comfort and a large amount of square footage for your money, this is the house to rent!
