Our property is 20 acres with 1,200' of Yampa River frontage. Many families have enjoyed reunions in the summers here. It is a great place for bird and wildlife viewing with lots of outdoor space for adults and supervised kids to skip rocks, wade and play by the river. Fishing is good for Brown, Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout, along with Pike and Whitefish.
The house is 2800 square feet, two stories on a full basement. Downstairs there is a sitting room with a foosball table, TV, full bathroom and two queen bedrooms with large opening windows. A laundry room adjoins the sitting room between the bedrooms.
The main floor has an open floor plan with a wood stove and electric baseboards for cozy heat; living area with TV/Stereo, a formal dining area that seats twelve, 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; the master queen bedroom with private bathroom, another queen bedroom, a double bedroom and full bath with new tiled shower. Large closet in the SW queen room, small closets in other bedrooms, wardrobe and dresser in master bedroom.
The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking including pots, baking dishes, bowls, condiments, spices ect.

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.
