Rocky Mountain ranch meets Far East decor in a lodge near the base of Steamboat Mountain
The dark wood furnishings and wood paneled floor add rustic charm to the Rocky Mountain backdrop and more traditional Colorado ranch decor. The layout is comfortable enough for a week's stay, with a sprawling living area — think oversize stone fireplaces and comfy leather couches.
Bed and Bath
Choose between a studio (with a living area and a private balcony in some), and a one- or two-bedroom condo (which sleep up to four and six, respectively); each has a spacious living room with a sofabed and fireplace, a full kitchen, a washer/dryer in the unit and a private balcony. Each bedroom has a bathroom stocked with Aveda products, full bathtubs (and fantastic, separate rain showers in some) and cushy robes, making it easy to get up and out in the mornings.
An array of après-ski spots await like an outdoor firepit, a swimming pool and three hot tubs — plus a game room for the kids. Although there's no restaurant or bar on-site, the open-plan living space is generous for a condo, with a full-size dining table, beautiful kitchen boasting shiny stainless appliances and a big island for gathering around with pre-dinner cocktails in hand.
In the Area
Steamboat's fabulous terrain is just a few minutes away by shuttle or via the lodge's private gondola. The mountain is known for its "champagne powder" and massive snowfall totals — it gets about 15 feet each year. The resort is also known for some of the best tree skiing in the U.S. and a season that stretches into late spring. In the summer, Steamboat attracts serious whitewater paddlers, anglers, mountain bikers and trail runners. For a meal try Café Diva, a charming bistro at the base of the mountain with seasonal fare such as tenderloin with brandy-mushroom sauce, spring peas and spaetzle. Trailhead is about two miles from Steamboat Springs' historic main street, Lincoln Avenue (which was built extra-wide back in the 1800s to accommodate cattle drives through town), and there you'll find one of two hot springs resorts in town plus plenty of good restaurants. Try Mahogany Ridge Brewery for American fare, craft brews and live music. For breakfast don't skip the eggs benedict and a giant cinnamon roll at local favorite Winona's Restaurant & Bakery.
