Private Homes, Unspecified house description

Our home is perched on an 80 foot high bluff overlooking the Yampa River Valley, hay meadows, the 'Cottonwood Corridor',Emerald Mountain, the Steamboat Ski area and tons of stars at night.
Our property is 20 acres with 1,200' of Yampa River frontage. It is a great place for wildlife viewing of all kinds with lots of outdoor space for kids skipping rocks, wading and hanging out by the river or fishing for Brown, Rainbow, Cutthroat trout and Pike.

The house is 2800 square feet, two stories on a full basement. Downstairs there is a sitting room with a foosball table and TV, full bathroom and two queen bedrooms with large opening windows.
A laundry room adjoins the sitting room.

The main floor comprises an open floor plan with a wood stove for cozy heat, living area with TV/Stereo, formal dining area, informal island and large kitchen. Many windows and both doors open onto a large,
south-facing covered deck, which wraps around two sides of the house. An entryway and half bath are also on the main floor.

On the top floor is a beautiful, south-facing sitting room with desk, phone, DSLwifi/fax/copier/printer. Also the master queen bedroom with private bathroom, a queen bedroom and a double bedroom which share a bathroom complete the upstairs.

The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking including condiments, spices ect. There is a custon built charcoal BBQ in the yard. We usually stock either charcoal or ethanol burner disks (which are instant, clean and work great) for the BBQ.

The Yampa River runs in front of the house, view the photos, and it's about a minute to walk down a path and road to get there.

It's our home to make yourself at home in!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1990

              About the owner: We were married on this river bank and have many wonderful memories of this property. It is dear to us; all we ask is that you care for it as you would your own. Our son, Joe, and daughter-in-law, Erin, manage the summer rentals, landscaping, guide fly-fishing guests, and have a small catering biz. They will take good care of you! Jamie and I live in WY with our horses, Red Angus cows and Border Collie. We love Steamboat during 'mud season' and work hard to maintain the property spring & fall. Please write or call us if you have any questions.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Unspecified:
              We built this house for our family and lived here for ten years. We still love coming to Steamboat and intend to hang onto this property for that reason. We also know how much friends and family have enjoyed the location, and that's why we rent it to special guests, such as yourself!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              There's easy access to town with country living. Our location is exceptional with river frontage, fantastic views and some acreage for kicking around on. Being on the river is irreplaceable. We love planting trees and have grown most of them from seedlings.
