About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

From your house to mine. All the comforts of home. Quiet, sunny duplex, on an acre lot, on ski mountain, the two bedrooms plus loft, two and a half bath home is available year round. Two minutes to the Meadows parking and five minutes to the gondola. The city bus runs every 20 minutes just at the end of the driveway for easy mountain access.

The house has a great room with cathedral ceiling, cozy gas fireplace, large windows looking out to ski mountain, flat screen TV, surround sound, and stereo. Decorated with oriental rugs on hardwood floors and antiques. Fabulous entertaining galley kitchen with cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, indoor Jenn-Aire grill, two ovens, and all custom appliances. All your kitchen necessities. Bar seating for five along with a glass dining table. Everything you need for the family including, Comcast Cable TV, wireless internet, many Disney VHS movies, sleds and Lego's.

An 8 person hot tub is located just off the master bedroom. For privacy it is situated on a covered porch surrounded by lattice walls.

The master bedroom features a king bed with all new linens, dresser, TV, and bath with jacuzzi tub for two, separate glass shower, double sinks, enclosed toilet area, and walk-in closet. Upstairs is the second bedroom with cathedral ceiling, queen bed, and the loft has a twin (trundle) bed. Each large and airy bedroom has its own television. There is an attached heated garage with parking for one small car, along with plenty of additional outdoor parking.

As this is a private home and not in a rental pool, I am now taking e-checks, and credit cards. I am currently looking for a long term winter rental. Contact for details.

It does have a rental unit on the lower level that has 2 bedrooms/1 bath. This could be used in addition to the main unit.

House is on the bus line for easy mountain access. VHR- 10-10

About The Owner

Since I was a young girl I have dreamed of owning a mountain home. In 2002 I moved from the Denver area and found the perfect location. After the kids moved out I have opened it up as a rental. 'Not your average ski rental' is a wonderful place to call home while on vacation.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Northwest Colorado

Why Not? The duplex is large, quiet and beautifully appointed. Not Your Average Ski Rental is just that!

What makes this house unique

Unique is the word for this rental. It has all the comforts of home and the convenience of a condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In 15 years of skiing all over North America, we have never stayed in a place with views as beautiful as yours. Your place is simply amazing and we look forward to returning.

Great Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (2 couples) recently stayed at this property for 5 days. Betsy was great and provided us with all the information we needed on the property. The location to the mountain base, restaurants, and grocery shopping was great! The house had everything we needed and enjoying the hot tub after day on the slopes was awesome! We experienced zero problems and I would most definitely stay at this property again.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home close to the ski area and right on the bus route. The new hot tub is deluxe and perfect for tired apres ski legs. House is quiet, beds are comfortable and you can see the slopes from the living room. We would happily stay here again!

Great View and Location, not very clean

  • 2 of 5

Unfortunately we cannot recommend this vrbo and caution others who may be tempted by a great location and a beautiful view of the mountain. True to its word it was conveniently located to the Meadows parking lot, the bus route and a very short drive to steamboat mountain. Cleanliness was not part of this VRBO. The countertops were greasy the downdraft grill plate had grease drippings that both need cleaned and the ceiling fan hadn't been dusted in years. The carpet in the bedroom and bathroom had numerous stains, the tub had a dark ring around it, the wash cloths looked dirty and we washed them just to make sure they were clean. All of these should have been a warning sign to avoid the hot tub. But after a long day of skiing you want to relax your muscles. Normally hot tub's have chemicals that are added on a daily frequency to rid the water of lingering bacteria. This has been common practice at VRBO's in Jackson hole,Park city, big sky Montana, All of the previous places we've enjoyed our winter ski vacation.But we took a leap of faith that the hot tub would be clean as it was serviced every other week by the owner. Unfortunately that slimey feeling in the hot tub led to folliculitis. Something else that has never happened on previous ski vacations is the owner paid us a visit late one afternoon wanting to chat. My wife was pleasant and cordial but did not extend an invitation during our vacation. In addition, nowhere in the property description does it state that there will be renters living in the basement below the main level living quarters. I don't fault the renters for being noisy in the evenings with their kids playing guitars or singing or having fun but I do fault the owner for not disclosing it before we agreed to rent the property. My wife and I love Steamboat, we love the people, we love the culture, we love this special place in Colorado, unfortunately the same can't be said for this VRBO.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest feedback on my VRBO. As I live nearby I always stop by to meet renters. I wish you had taken the face to face time to share your concerns and I would have had your concerns immediately addressed. Unfortunately for both of us I had to use a substitute cleaning crew and obviously they won't work for me again. As of today most of these issues have been resolved. The white carpet in the bedroom/bath is professionally cleaned twice a year and some stains are difficult to eliminate. The wash clothes are on the update list for this year. Taking makeup off causes problems for light colors. If you or anyone reading this response has concerns feel free to contact me via the phone on the account. Betsy

This condo was perfect with all the comforts of home. We loved the view and all the amenities, to include the hot tub at the end of the day! We enjoyed fly fishing, snow mobile riding in the mountains, shopping at the ski base and just relaxing at the condo, so peaceful! We will definitely return. Love it!

Awesome Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Betsy's house was perfect for our ski vacation. We skied 3 days, perfect location and easy to get to Gondola center. The house was comfortable, well provisioned with everything we needed. Betsy was great and helped with anything we needed. Great vacation!

Great family Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults and 2 teenagers, celebrating our daughters birthday. What a perfect place for our family! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything necessary to prepare full meals, cakes, desserts, etc. The family skied 2 days and loved the hot tub afterwards. Betsy came by and is a delightful hostess full of useful information about her condo, Steamboat and history of the area. She was very communicative before , during and after our stay. It was a fantastic weekend.
