          VRBO Bear stayed here:


          My bear family had a wonderful stay at this beautiful property. Before we even arrived, we were welcomed to The Porches by the superb staff and concierge service. They were willing to help us plan any of our activities prior to arrival and even grocery shop for us if we needed it. When we arrived, we learned about the property’s plentiful amenities and services. There was a complimentary shuttle service that could take us anywhere within the city, complimentary coffee available in the “Barn” anytime we wanted, a paper delivered directly to our doorstep every morning, and the satisfaction of knowing that if we needed anything we could call the concierge. Additionally, the property complex featured a heated pool, steam room, exercise room and game room that we could use day and night.

          We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into this magnificent townhouse to discover that preparations had been made in anticipation of our arrival. There was a nice toasty fire in the fireplace and lights were on. The amazing décor featured beautiful art on the walls, a nice mountain theme throughout the whole house, and candles placed all around the house for added warmth. We quickly checked out the rest of the house to find a beautiful kitchen with top of the line appliances, granite countertops, and a nice dining area to eat our home cooked meals. Downstairs, we were pleased to find a family room with a pool table, poker table, wet bar, large flat screen tv, and another sitting area in front of a roaring fire. The little bear cubs especially liked the bunk bedroom that was all their own for the weekend. Their Mom and Dad liked the master bedroom with yet another fireplace, a beautiful bathroom with a jetted tub, big glass shower, and heated floors. Whether you are staying at The Porches with a small or large group, they offer a variety of units to accommodate any guest size.

          They say there is some of the best skiing in Steamboat. So whether you are coming to ski, shop, or just enjoy the beautiful Rocky Mountains you will not be disappointed when staying at The Porches. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
