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.

Perfect Christmas x2

  • 5 of 5

Dear Debbie-

When each of our children walked again into the Edelweiss Chalet, they immediately felt at home. 2013 and 2016. Two awesome, exciting, comfortable, beautiful Christmas Celebrations spent in Steamboat Springs.

The Tree was beautiful and it was such a treat to have it lit and decorated when we walked in. Everything about the Chalet is perfect, the rooms, the comfort of the furniture, the huge picture windows allowing us to see the slopes and the falling snow, access to tuns-it was all just wonderful.

Also adding to the total picture was the incredible snow fall the first four days. The cars, roofs, benches, outside lighting posts, tree branches, were all covered with fresh snow. It was gorgeous and everyone put on skis or snowshoes and went out to enjoy. when they got back, what is better than the dip in the spa when its snowing.

We baked, decorated cookies, played pool, or just sat in front of the fire, but in sight of the out-of-doors and read books.

I could go on forever. You have know idea what a perfect gathering place it was for all our family. The memories of these christmases will last for our children and grand-children long after Jim and I are gone. Think of all the people you have made happy through the years by allowing them to use this lovely. beautiful home. Our entire family, Jim, Mary, Julie, Michael, Denise, Jordan, Sonette, Jaime, Monica, Coley, Bob, Kim, Ben, Anne, and Matt thank you very much.

God Bless you both and have a wonderful New Year.

Jim and Mary Webster and family

Wonderful!!!!!!!!! Ron

  • 5 of 5

We are a Corvette group from Colorado with eight cars and eight couples. This is the second time we have vacationed at the Edelweis Chalet in Steamboat Springs and the accommodations have been excellent both times. Everything is at your finger tips to make your vacation enjoyable inside and outside. We have never had a problem and everything has always been clean and ready for our arrival. The Chalet is a wonderful place!

Wonderfully surpassed all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The week my family of 9 adults and 7 children spent at Edleweiss Chalet was WAY beyond expectations.

This rental home is totally top notch in every way. The large rooms and public area of the house gave everyone

plenty of space and privacy. All three levels of the home had 10 foot ceilings and large expansive windows. The bedrooms were spacious, clean, comfortable, and private. We could not believe how every comfort was provided.

Fluffy bath towels (in abundance), quality sheets and comforters, and beach towels added to our comfort. Comfortable furniture and seating were everywhere! The large laundry room (2 hugh washers and dryers) was very helpful with all the children. The pictures of the home do not do it justice.

The Hot Tub was used every day and was large enough that no one was ever crowded. Teens and children LOVED the lower level. The pool table, hot tub, large theatre, were all enjoyed. Many toys, games etc. were also available.

The kitchen was amazing! The 3 sinks on the first floor, 6 burner Viking stove and 2 dishwashers  added to the convenience. I could not believe how beautifully the kitchen was stocked with dishes, silverware, pans, and every utensil and lots extras in the pantry.

We enjoyed both of the outdoor seating areas....either on the deck in the rear or the patio in the front depending on

the location of the sun.

Steamboat in the summer was a lot of fun with a large array of things to do. The house is in a very private setting .

Checking in and out was done with ease and it was very easy to "work" with Debra.

Can't imagine what a luxury it would be to be here in winter for skiing!

Please give this property consideration when looking for a family reunion or get-away for a group of adults!

What an Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

Where to start, this beautiful vacation retreat has everything one can ask for. Not only is it at the absolute top of the road half way up the ski mountain, but it is much higher then the base Gondola, but the views are out of this world. We could lay in bed and watch the Gondola go up with out turning our heads. The house has a very warm friendly vibe, and you can tell that the owners take extraordinary care of their property. Every single details, was covered, and all family members could not stop raving about how fantastic this location is. We have had family gatherings since I was a baby (27 years) and this was by far the BEST property we have ever stayed at. Thank you very much Tim and Debra for giving us this opportunity to spend time with my family, and we will never forget it! Don't miss out, I promise you will have not one complaint, except on the day you have to leave because you wont want to!

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!
