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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Steamboat Springs, CO, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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!
