About Mike Lower

Married 45+ years; Grandchildren in Washington, DC and Vancouver, Washington; Retired from Ford; Continuing to live part of year in Birmingham, MI.

Mike Lower purchased this cabin in 1989

Why Mike Lower chose Northwest Colorado

The home is on the high side of the upper loop road in the Tree Haus neighborhood with vacant undeveloped lots on both sides and the Emerald Mountain Wilderness area behind. Tree Haus has a collection of attractive/unique designed single family homes ranging in size from the original 2500+/- SF homes to newer and expanded 5000+SF homes. The area is fairly hilly with winding roads and under ground utilities. Most homes are permanent residences with only a few of the 2nd homes available (when not used by owner/family/friends) for weekly/monthly rental.

The location provides direct access to Emerald Mountain for snowshoeing in winter and hiking in summer. Some of the local elk herd passes below our large deck on their way to/from the river.

What makes this cabin unique

We have attempted to create a home that is comfortable for personal use and one that feels like staying at a friends vacation 'cabin' for renters. The house/furniture is PET/KID FRIENDLY. The new kitchen is very well equipped for enjoyable food prep with plenty of space for socializing. We have an 'open pantry' stocked with basics++ to minimize the need for trips to the market. The new master bath with jetted soaking tub, separate multi-head shower and heated stone floor is designed to comfort tired bodies after a hard day on the slopes or trails.

We have priced a little under the market in an effort to attract & retain multi-week repeat renters. Further we encourage owner/renter/local property manager communications in an effort to respond promptly to renter requests and to exceed expectations, thereby further increasing the number of repeat renters that treat the house as if it were their own.

The home is lovely and open and beautiful views. We used to come here when my kids were little and we just did a trip here again and still love it. The house has had quality updates over the years and the host is attentive to what we need. They even have a basket of gloves and goggles to borrow- very thoughtful. We're coming back next year. My wife loved the heated bathroom floors! Thx, peter

Great space, perfect view.

  • 5 of 5

Three couples, 2 babes, 2 dogs (Great Dane and a Lab), and still had room for more! Open living room with lots of room to spread out and chill out. We loved looking at the view of the mountain from living room and deck. The kitchen was big enough for us all to prepare dinners which was equipped with good knives and my favorite, the vitamix for morning smoothies! We will all be back for sure next ski season and probably a summer girls trip before that. The only thing it's missing is a hot tub ;)

We stayed 5 nights this winter and it was great! Amazing views of Steamboat mountain, very private, close to everything and very comfortable. Owner was accommodating, helpful and had the house well stocked. We had a lot of fun and definitely plan to stay here again. Highly recommend!

Fantastic Get Away Home

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home! My husband and I along with our two dogs had a great stay here. The home is so roomy and equipped with all you could need. The views from the home are amazing. The owner is so easy to deal with and responds quickly to emails and questions. We enjoyed the large deck very much and so did our dogs. This is a great home away from home. Thank you for sharing your home.

If you want to rent a comfortable, fully-equipped home that's convenient to the ski area and the town of Steamboat Springs, RENT THIS HOME! Close to everything, yet quiet and secluded with absolutely gorgeous views. Watch the hot air balloons float by in the morning, and the herd of elk cut through the yard morning and evening. A true paradise! Fully equipped kitchen made cooking fun, and the owner is very thoughtful and accommodating with great communication. A great place to make wonderful vacation memories!

Outstanding Vacation Get-A-Way!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are currently here and wrapping up our 10 day stay at this property. It is 100% Outstanding, Awesome, Peaceful, Relaxing and every other wonderful positive experience you can imagine!!! The view is spectacular! The home itself is beautiful, very modern, secluded (yet close to town) and has all the necessities you will need for your stay (and then some!). The appliances are ALL new, top of the line and yet easy to use for any age of guests. The interior design is above and beyond what the listing photos is absolutely breathtaking (inside and outside). No guests would ever leave here disappointed!!! PERFECT vacation get-a-way! The outdoor deck is massive...great for relaxing any time of day or evening. We brought our pet Yorkie along and he loved the deck...great areas of sun and shade any time...and the deck is structured so that your pet cannot run away (safe all the way around the house). The city of Streamboat Springs is beautiful too...great place to visit and shop...plenty of activities for all ages. Grocery store, fast food and shopping just minutes away from the home. All in all there is nothing we (our family of seven) could request to make the stay andy more was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!! If you are looking for the perfect vacation home and area to stay...this is the it now!!! The owner is a delight (talked by phone) and nobody will come by the home to check up on you or watch over you...complete peace and quiet. We will DEFINITELY be returning here soon! We are already dreading having to leave and go home...this place is paradise!!! Experience it for yourself and enjoy!
