About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Family Room + Bunk Room, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

A dream vacation home in Steamboat Springs, Co. less than a mile down to the base of the mountain. Our three bedroom, three bath townhouse also has a bunk room/den and a loft and easily sleeps ten in beds. Four TVs with cable and DVD. Our mountain vacation home includes a fully equipped kitchen and full size washer/dryer. It is ideal for large families or several couples. Everyone can enjoy privacy with each bedroom and bath on its own level.

Our townhouse has been completely remodeled and recently redecorated. It has hardwood floors, new carpet, granite kitchen counters, and new appliances. The decor is warm and comfortable with leather furniture and luxury linens. It is a great place to call home while on vacation. You can eat in on the front or back porch over looking the pool while you BBQ on the gas grill.

Parking / Bus / Steamboat: We have plenty of parking, but public transportation is also available to take you to the ski village or downtown and always brings you back to our door. If you want to eat out, the bus stop is just across the street and arrives every 15 minutes. Then, you are just a couple of minutes from Gondola Square. Steamboat has incredible eating, shopping and a movie theater, strings concert hall or professional rodeo. The botanic garden is a must see.

Locker: In the winter, enjoy access to our heated locker at the base of Gondola Square and a 30% discount on all ski equipment. I have carried skis for 3 kids and believe me this is a luxury for a Dad. Just leave your boots, skis, poles, and helmets in the locker at the end of each day. You'll be able to wear your comfortable shoes to and from the mountain, and best of all no skis to carry home! The locker is in the lower level of the Christie Sport Stalker shop and rental, just across from the lift ticket office. If you need additional storage, Christie's will store rented skis for free or we also have a secured ski locker on the back patio of the townhouse.

Summary: We treated our family to Christmas Holiday in Steamboat Springs in 2000 & 2002. Those memories will last forever and are the reason we finally bought our own place in Steamboat. Our townhouse is so warm and relaxed we now vacation in Steamboat as often as possible. When we aren't using it, we are so happy to be able to share it with you and your family. Steamboat Springs is a great vacation location for all seasons and we are now hosting destination weddings. Just minutes to hiking fishing, biking, horseback riding, hot springs, botanic garden and many shops and restaurants.

About Don and Montie Rouze

Welcome to our home. We are Don & Montie Rouze. We love Steamboat Springs and use our mountain home as much as we can. When we aren't using it, we are happy to share it. We love getting to know our guests and enjoy helping with their vacation plans. We want our guests to think of our mountain home as their's while using it. We have three grown children, and three grandchildren.

Don and Montie Rouze purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Don and Montie Rouze chose Steamboat Springs

A perfect family Christmas at Steamboat in 2000 made us pledge that some day we would own a property in Steamboat Springs. A family oriented town and ski area provides activities for all ages. Once you get to know Steamboat in the non ski season you'll love it even more. It's the extras we provide. Read our reviews.

What makes this townhome unique

My sister and brother-in-law own another unit in our townhome complex. We host many large family gatherings and having 2 units close together keeps you family and friends close, but not too close. These two units combined can sleep up to 20 people. Families can gather for meals, but also go their own separate ways for activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great time in Steamboat on the mountain, at the hot springs, hiking and doing some nordic skiing. Enjoyed the condo - especially the kitchen. The lazy susan was great for card games! Had a fun spring break. Thanks.

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home! Great space with a warm, cozy, atmosphere and better equipped with everything needed than my own home. Owner, Don, was super friendly and considerate, checking in to make sure we made it through the blizzard and had everything we needed. I could have easily stayed another week! Great place to relax and enjoy all that Steamboat Springs has to offer.

Love the Upgrades and Fall Color

  • 5 of 5

We love this place and keep coming back. New railings throughout look fantastic. The kitchen is fully stocked with 2 slow cookers, blender and even a hand mixer. They provide locally roasted coffee, but have a new coffee maker that allows K cups too. The pantry has lots of spices, paper plates, napkins and paper towels. Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was able to fit our entire party (12) very comfortably. All we had to do was bring food, everything else was provided. We were right by the pool and the shuttle was just across the street. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

Perfect home for our group of 6 adults/4 kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Rouze mountain town home in July 2107. The accommodations were perfect for our group of 3 families. All parties had enough privacy and space for 'alone time', but most of our time in the town home was spent in the kitchen and around the dining table or on the back patio/in the pool. The town home is as described and shown in the listing and was very clean when we arrived. There were plenty of linens to make up the pull out bed in the loft and the sofa, towels were plentiful. Don was a pleasure to talk to, we had a 15 minute phone conversation prior to renting the space where he answered all of my questions and offered travel tips regarding Steamboat. The kitchen was well equipt (the knives were sharp! I usually travel with my own, but did not regret leaving mine home for this trip) and comfortable to work in. We had all of the equipment necessary to make 3 dinners. Don and I communicated a couple of times during our trip, but only about arrival details. I would not have hesitated to text or call him if we had had any problems with the town home, which we didn't. We spent all of our evenings at the town home and spent days hiking at Fish Creek Falls, floating the Yampa, a visit to Strawberry Park (springs), shopping in town....

We had a very enjoyable trip and the Rouze's helped make it that way. I highly recommend this property.
