We purchased this penthouse condo 3 years ago literally sight-unseen based on a friend’s recommendation and we were glad we did. Located within Storm Meadows at Christie Base, the location is world class with true ski-in/out access.
In the mornings our snow condition report is out the back door. We ski/board down to the gondola and are some of the first to hit the slopes for the day. You can pack a lunch or eat at a mountain house but with this location and access (leave gear on the rack outside or toss it in our ski “locker” on the first floor) it’s just as easy to come down to the condo and fuel up at home base while enjoying the space and the view. At the end of the day we have a well deserved soak in the hot tub, maybe spend a few minutes in the sauna, and after cleaning up we are off to Ski Time Square for dinner and drinks, just 200 yards from the condo. When we head into downtown Steamboat Springs, we enjoy the free in-town shuttle from the Ski Time Square stop.
Coming inside the condo you feel right at home as 20 foot ceilings make the it feel open and spacious while the mossy rock fireplace keep it warm and cozy. We just finished remodeling the condo this fall (PICTURES COMING SOON!) and it has new paint and flooring, updated bathrooms and kitchen, new fixtures and all new high quality furniture. The condo has a modern mix of traditional and industrial while still fitting into the surroundings by using natural materials, an earthy palate, and local decor. (We asked our designer for a warmer environment than the currently trendy cold greys and blues.)
The first level of our home is the entertaining & living level with the kitchen open to the living and dining areas. There are plenty places to get comfortable with a weathered leather couch, two large chairs, and an ottoman foot stool in the living area. There are four adjustable barstools at the new granite counter and the dining area has a leather banquet and three chairs with plenty of room for six or more at a solid zinc top table with metal base.
The kitchen was just updated with new black appliances, granite counters, and is fully equipped. Having a functional kitchen can be one of the greatest pleasures of nightly rentals and Steamboat has fantastic stores and markets all around. We recommend Wild Horse at the other side of the mountain base for a quick trip or Natural Grocers in town for your initial supply. There is also City Market, Safeway, and Walmart nearby. We invite you to use what ingredients are in the kitchen also but please replace what is empty so it’s ready for the next guest.
The living room opens to a balcony with beautiful views from the morning sun on the slopes to the expansive yampa valley with the flattop mountains in the distance. You can watch the jumps and mogul courses above, enjoy the squeals and laughter of skiers and mountain coaster riders out front, and have the Christmas lights and charm of the base area just below. Hot air balloon tours float up from the valley floor to reward early morning risers with a picturesque dawn scene.
Upstairs (we replaced the spiral staircase with straight stairs) are three large bedrooms. The front bedroom offers a queen bed, built-in lighting and shelves, a large television and a ceiling fan with a huge glass window facing west over the living area onto the slopes. The back bedroom has a modern queen bed, flat-screen television and two wall sconce lights with bedside shelves. The third bedroom which we consider a “family suite” offers a full sized bed with a twin bunk above, and includes a smaller flat screen television. All bedrooms have quality mattresses and bedding, and include a chair, dresser, and closet/luggage rack with hangers. On this level, there is a full bathroom and an additional vanity area for the girls to get ready with a full length mirror at the end of the hall.
Wireless internet is provided throughout the condo and all rooms have individual thermostats and humidifiers for dry nights.
While the condo boasts many updates, we must admit, the amenities and location are most impressive. We know what clients desire concerning ease, so we offer condo check-in by our local concierge, one of the finest in Steamboat. Once you arrive at our building and park, guests take the elevator to the top floor as our condo is the top two-levels of the building, no noisy neighbors above. Tim will have the lights on and fireplace roaring for your arrival and can provide a quick orientation so you can have all your questions answered.
For us the condo is not just an investment, it is a lifestyle. We offer it for guests to truly feel comfortable and to enjoy a carefree vacation at one of the finest ski resorts in the world. Tim, our concierge, is available anytime to ensure your stay is nothing less than fantastic and we are also just a call, text, or email away. We feel lucky to call this our second home and could not do it without you, our guests, coming and calling it yours as well. We look forward to sharing an amazing location and experience.
