Luxury vacation rentals
Steamboat Springs Colorado is the very essence of a mountain town. Located in the Yampa Valley, famed for its myriad of hot springs (hence the town’s name) and lakes nearby, it’s the perfect destination for those seeking water and outdoor activities in the summer, particularly rafting on the Yampa River! The drive from Denver to Steamboat Springs takes a little over 5 hours, whilst it’s roughly 2 hours from Vail to your Steamboat lodging.
Steamboat Resort, home to the famous champagne powder, is much more similar to Breckenridge than either Beaver Creek or Vail, in that the Downtown and base ski areas are separate. Downtown has an extensive frontier history, and is large for a mountain town. It consists of around 7-8 blocks of restaurants and shops, with lots of others surrounding the edge of town. In terms of things to do in Steamboat Springs, there is a bustling arts scene, with art walks and festivals throughout the summer months. There are a lot of galleries you can explore while walking through Downtown. The Steamboat restaurant scene is also incredibly impressive. In particular, we recommend Winona’s for breakfast and Laundry for dinner! Downtown is also home to a number of small and independent breweries, which is quintessentially ‘Colorado’.
Get to know the area
In terms of transportation from Downtown to the slopes, Steamboat, unfortunately, does not have an in-town gondola, so guests are required to drive to the base area to ski. However the town does have a free shuttle service which guests are more than welcome to use. In terms of Steamboat Springs lodging, the resort is home to an array of different homes, from cosy Downtown condos to large mountain-side estates.
Strawberry Hot Springs is one of the most famous Steamboat hot springs, and is roughly 25 minutes drive from downtown. This is a very natural hot spring, with small facilities and they only take cash. No food or drinks are served. You are very immersed in nature. There are 5-6 pools that all vary in temperature. It is a unique experience and a great way to unwind, as there is no cell service there! In the winter, the law requires you to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, as the drive there is windy and hilly.
