Under the Gondola - Gondola Suite #VHR-13-02

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom + 2 Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Hello, we are Robin and John Hanley and we would like to welcome you to Steamboat Springs! Originally from upstate NY, we moved to Chicago for 15 years before visiting Steamboat and subsequently moving here 19 years ago. While on a business trip to Romania, John was quite taken with the Romanian people and the plight of their economy. He discovered the best way to help them was to hire them for their crafts. Therefore, this property has been finished using Romanian marble, European cherry wood and wrought iron all hand crafted by individual people and villages.

The property is located just under the gondola on Ski Trail Lane. Our heated, back staircase leads you down from the house to only cross the street and ski out to the base of the mountain. Ski-in is just as simple.

The Gondola Suite is connected to our main residence. Upon your arrival the unit will be clean and stocked with plenty of towels for your use. You are provided with a key to your own front door and the unit is again cleaned after your departure. 1 king bed and 2 convertibles. Full kitchen, flat screen TVs and DVD player.

We live in the main portion of the house, offering 3 private guest suites for nightly rental. (There is no shared living space.) A perfect setting for a multi-family trip, traveling together but each having a private suite & bathroom.

We allow dogs on approval with a $30 per dog pet fee (sorry no cats).

Perfect stay for humans and pets!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Under The Gondola suite. Very cosy - especially with the romantic fireplace in the bedroom. It was walking distance to the gondola which is a huge plus. Super pet friendly. Owner Robin, was able to let our puppy out while we were on the slopes. Everybody was super friendly. We would love to stay there in the future!!!

Great place to stay!

Robin couldn’t have been a better host and the condo is beautiful, comfortable and perfectly located. You won’t find a more pet friendly condo in Steamboat!

Beautiful place in amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Robin's property over Thanksgiving and had a really nice time. When we first arrived there was a ton of construction and chaos (it looks like it's wrapping up), but both Robin and her daughter met our car and made things really easy. She even had a construction worker help us carry our things up which was super helpful! The only downside with the construction was we couldn't just let our dog out into the fenced yard-- there was now an extra step (which again won't always be there and Robin was very apologetic).

Now onto the really good: it was easily the cleanest and nicest dog friendly place I've ever stayed at. The kitchen was the perfect size for making our thanksgiving feast. Robin was very accessible for questions. The location was amazing for skiing, although the weather didn't was in the 60s most days. It takes all of about 5 minutes, some of it skiing, to get to the slopes and the gondola was beautiful to we didn't have a single bad sunset. Also, while we were there, Robin hosted 19 people for Thanksgiving and we could hardly hear them even though our unit was directly adjacent (she also warned us ahead of time that she was the host). Steamboat is just gorgeous! We definitely plan on staying here again!

Owner's Response: Happy to report that the rock work outside is all completed! I'm so sorry your arrival was chaotic, but appreciate that you understood it was a temporary situation. I know you were disappointed with the lack of snow, as opening weekend is always a mystery! I am glad to hear that you were comfortable and enjoyed your stay in the Gondola Suite with your dogs. They are beautiful pups and we hope to have you all back again!! Best, Robin

Robin's Home is Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our experience at Robin's home in Steamboat! We were able to be very comfortable as a family and our dogs were more than welcome. It felt like a little community that we walked into. The house itself is also very nice and the location is super convenient. Felt easy to come and go and make her home feel like ours. Highly recommend!

Very nice accomodations!

  • 4 of 5

my husband and I recently stayed in this unit. It was wonderful! Robin was very easy to work with from the beginning. The unit is connected to the main part of the house but it is completely private and felt like it was our own. It is very tastefully decorated with very nice tile work throughout. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans, dishes, utensils and it also had a very nice gas grill. The king bed was super comfy, and there was also a love seat size sleeper sofa... But we did not use that. It would be great for a child or maybe two small children. This place is very dog friendly and Robin's dogs were so nice. They greeted us every time we went out. It was a very short walk across the street to the snow and we just put on our skis and skied down to the gondola. Super easy! If we ever return to Steamboat, we will definitely stay here again. I would have given this 5 stars (I wish there was a four and a half), but the very small drawback was that there is no hot tub and my husband and I usually look for that in a property. The many positives about this place definitely outweigh that one very small negative.
