Theresa & Frank Ventresca

Owners Snowshoe Haus


Frank Ventresca purchased this house in 2006

Why Frank Ventresca chose Steamboat Springs

The Snowshoe Haus is located in the Tree Haus subdivision right accross from the ski mountain (directly looking at it). It is perfectly located for both summer and winter vacations, far enough away from the base area crowds but only 3 minutes away from free ski area parking lot or to downtown restaurants. Our ski mtn. and Yampa Valley views are spectacular and our Tree Haus neighborhood is upscale and quiet. The afternoon sun & alpenglow sunsets are not to be missed from our large deck with private hottub.

What makes this house unique

Skiing from the Snowshoe Haus is very easy because of its' unique central location. Gear up in the house and it's only a short 3 minute drive to the free Meadows Parking lot or proceed directly to Gondola drop-off if driver not skiing. During the summer walk or bike down the hill to the Yampa River Core Trail and take it along the river into town or the opposite way towards Rabbit Ears. The Yampa River is great for fishing, tubing or just watching the river roll by. Our elevated location on Emerald Mountain offers the perfect vantage point to view the ski area along with the entire Yampa Valley below, especially from the hottub!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a wonderful time. Everything you could ever need was provided. I have stayed at several VRBO's and this home is a 10+. Hope to visit again next summer but stay for a month not just a week. Thank You for opening your home for people to rent.

We had a wonderful holiday get away!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable and had a beautiful view! The fireplace offered a beautiful and cozy spot to look outside at the view! The house was stocked with all of the kitchen items we needed to cook (I was very impressed)!

When we arrived, everything was ready and we had no problems getting in and situated! There was a cute little Christmas Tree there, which was very nice!

We would definitely recommend this house as a wonderful place to stay!

Owner's Response: Jennifer, Thanks for the excellent 5 star review!!! Agreed, Our location. just across the Yampa River up in "Tree Haus", is so convenient and only minutes away from the "free" Meadows ski parking lot and grocery shopping.

Steamboat Summer Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven adults spent a wonderful week in this spacious, well equipped and comfortable home. It's location in the quiet and convenient Tree Haus neighborhood was perfect. It was close to tubing on the Yampa, the traffic free River Road into town and a nearby City Market. The spacious deck with various sitting areas were wonderful for reading, eating or using the six person hot tub. The views from the deck of Mt. Werner ski area and the Yampa Valley were fantastic. The house had plenty of room to spread out for group time or quiet time. The kitchen was very well equipped with spices, cooking utensils, plates and glasses.The K-cup machine got a lot of use in addition to the beverage cooler. The bedrooms and bathrooms were well located to provide privacy and comfort, and the large two car garage came in handy for storing bikes, tubes and coolers.

The owner Frank and local contact David were great hosts. When Frank got notice that the neighborhood water would be shut off for street repairs, he offered us passes to the Old Town Hot Springs. David also provided bottled water for us to drink. They both wanted to be sure we had a wonderful stay. With this wonderful home as our base, we enjoyed tubing, horseback riding, biking, walking, shopping, restaurants, a free concert in town, the weekend rodeo and plain old relaxing. It was a fantastic and fun summer stay in Steamboat Springs.

So glad the water issue was resolved and you enjoyed the Old Town Hot Springs as well as the many other popular Steamboat outdoor activities. David, our dedicated local caretaker, really comes in handy when things happen and is always on-call to ensure your visit is hassle-free. We look forward to having you back anytime. Remember we accept reservations 12 months in advance and offer the best rates to our repeat guests. Regards, Theresa and Frank Ventresca Owners- Snowshoe Haus

Summer visit

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Snowshoe Haus. The location is great for shopping as well as area events. The house has everything you need and the deck is a great place to gather. There were 9 adults in our group and we were able to socialize as a group as well as have privacy individually. We had a great vacation in Steamboat and would recommend Snowshoe Haus as an ideal place to use as a home away from home.

Owner's Response: Tom, thanks for the great review of your summer visit to the Snowshoe Haus. We are thrilled the home met all your expectations. As you mentioned the rear deck is a popular location to unwind after a fun day out and about the town. Our new (larger and quieter) hot tub will surely make the happy hours even more enjoyable and soothe all those sore muscles. We look forward to seeing you again.
