Property type apartment

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. We allow dogs upon approval.

Please note that I do accept credit cards and that you need to contact owner for cancellation policy and availability, even if you get an automated response from VRBO that the property is available! Credit cards are payable directly to Robin at 9708463859.

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.

What a wonderful place to stay! Robin is the best! Condo is very nice--great kitchen for those who cook. Just like home. Had to let Nala in a couple of times as we were missing our dog! We are planning to be back next winter. Thanks again Robin & John!

Spring in Steamboat

  • 5 of 5

Great location for skiers and could not be better for the traveler with dogs. Everybody was friendly and the lock out could not have been better.

Enjoyable Stay in Gondola Suite

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the pet-friendly Gondola Suite, the first visit was Memorial Day 2010. Our objective was to escape the Texas heat in August - Mission accomplished! The Gondola Suite is conveniently located on the ski mountain and is very homey, comfortable and beautiful with marble finishes throughout. The photos and listing description were accurate, the suite was spotless and well maintained. We enjoyed walking with our dog down to gondola square every morning to buy a newspaper and let her play in the water garden. She got along great with Robin and John's dogs as well - especially sweet Nala. We also enjoyed sitting on the front porch reading, relaxing and taking in the mountain views and using the outdoor barbeque grill in the evenings. Robin and John are the most gracious and accommodating hosts and responded to all inquiries promptly. Robin even contacted her veterinarian on her own when our dog needed a prescription refilled. Highly recommend hiking Mr. Werner, Fish Creek Falls, Mad Creek, and the trail between US 40 & the river. My husband liked playing golf at Haymaker - Rollingstone Ranch was extremely challenging. Good restaurants we tried were Carl's Tavern downtown for casual fare, Rio Grande downtown for excellent shrimp fajitas and margaritas, Fiesta Jalisco near City Market and Three Peaks Grille. Also had Sunday brunch at mid-mountain restaurant - the scenery is divine, however, the food only mediocre. I would highly recommend a vacation in the Gondola Suite or one of the other units Robin and John have on the premises.
