About the property

Cozy, comfy 2-level condo, sleeps 6 comfortably, just steps to the slopes!

'Steamboat Retreat' is the perfect place to curl up with a cup of cocoa in front of the fire after a full day of enjoying Steamboat's legendary champagne powder in winter, or hiking in summer!

Do you love waking up slowly on a winter morning, snuggling under the fluffy comforter, and then cooking a leisurely breakfast before heading out for a fantastic day of sun and snow? Perhaps your idea of the perfect vacation is to spring out of bed early and be at the gondola as soon as it opens, so that you can be the first to break the fresh powder or groomers. Either way, we've got you covered!

Start your day with a cup of fresh-ground coffee and breakfast in our very well appointed stainless/granite kitchen. (I like to cook and have equipped the kitchen accordingly!) Slip into your ski/snowboard clothes - your boots are warm from sitting on the fireplace hearth - and grab your equipment from the heated garage, and then walk across the street (or take the free on-call shuttle) to the gondola and quick access to CHAMPAGNE POWDER!!

You may come back for lunch and a nap, or eat at any of the great restaurants on the mountain or at the base - don't miss the pho at Thunderhead!

At the end of the day, ski almost to your vacation condo, take the short walk back across the street (or take the free shuttle), shed your ski/snowboard gear, pour yourself some water or other beverage, and pop out the door to the hot tub or heated pool - right next to the condo! You may have chili simmering in the crockpot, ready for you to enjoy a hearty dinner in your cozy pajamas after a relaxing soak in the hot tub, or you may choose to take the free shuttle to any of the great restaurants on the mountain or downtown. We are happy to recommend our favorites for you.

Features of our vacation home:

This exclusive 1232 sq ft two bedroom, three bath condominium at the Phoenix features new carpet (updated from the green carpet in photos), stainless appliances, granite countertops, slate flooring, and rustic Mexican furniture. Large master has brand new queen bed, private bath, and granite-topped vanity, plus a patio with easy access to the heated pool/hot tubs a few yards away. Second bedroom has twin beds and private bath, and the living area includes a very comfortable pull-out couch with a brand new air mattress, and a private bath. Living/dining area overlooks the pool area.

The upper level also includes a heated one-car garage with ski racks; walk across Apres Ski Way to the slopes and ski/hike down to the gondola. After an active day outside, the free shuttle can take you to the ski area base or downtown for dinner at one of Steamboat's fabulous restaurants.

Pack and play available; condo certified kid-friendly by our two small kids. 'A' rated by management company.

Reservation policy: 3 night minimum stay. $300 deposit to reserve (refundable - converts to a security deposit). Cancellations/refunds by owner discretion.

About Rick Johnson

Steamboat Retreat belongs to Anne & Rick Johnson (AZ) and John & Mimi Catlin (MD and UK), who are Anne's parents. We regularly visit Steamboat with the kids/grandkids, (elementary-school age). Rick is an airline pilot (retired from USAF), John is an engineer, Anne is a recovering engineer and entrepreneur, Natalie is a fashionista, Ryan is a trip, and Mimi stays busy trying to keep track of the rest of the gang.

Rick Johnson purchased this condo in 2006

Why Rick Johnson chose Northwest

The Yampa Valley Curse got us! We went to Steamboat for skiing in 2002, and have been coming back ever since. The skiing is fantastic, the town is friendly, and the Phoenix is in a great location.

What makes this condo unique

The condo itself is beautifully decorated and well positioned in the complex, overlooking the pool. The slopes are right across the street, so we can easily walk to the base area, including ski school. The Phoenix has a BRAND NEW exterior, with all new windows and doors - come check it out!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an awesome vacation in Steamboat. We had easy access to Christy sports for equipment rental, easy access ( walk across the street) to the slopes, shopping and dining. Only time we used our rental auto was to get there from Denver, one trip to town for diner at Mahogany Ridge Brewery & a quick stop at Walmart and back to Denver. 3 baths were nice and access from the unit to the hot tub, sauna, and pool was the best at the Phoenix. Kitchen was loaded with anything you might need. Thanks R & A as this was one of the BEST vacations we have ever had! Your Friends from Ga. Go Dawgs!

Enjoyed a very pleasant stay at Steamboat Retreat just prior to the 4th of July. Comfortable accomodations, very close to swimming pool and to Gondola Square (great for skiing AND summer activities, too). Would rent again.

Clean, convenient, and bigger than it appears

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect. It was our first time using vrbo and first time staying here. Every detail was covered. The instructions from the owner were easy to understand and everything worked as described. This place couldn't be located at a more convenient spot and was very comfortable. I don't want to spoil their surprises, but they provide more than they advertise. I hope all that follow have as good a time in Steamboat as our family did and find this condominium a great place to call home while you are there.

Nice place. Very convenient to most everything

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Easy walk to the village.

Condo was very good. New carpeting. Granite countertops are a nice touch. A bit dark inside between the colors and lighting. Furniture could use a refresh. Couldn't get the lower level heat to work?

Supposed access to ski hill via The Ptarmigan was a no-go...we were stopped by Ptarmigan management in the parking lot while trying to access the ski hill and were told that it was for Ptarmigan guests only and that we'd have to walk down the road to the "public access". Frustrating.
