The property is located just under the gondola on Ski Trail Lane.

Black Bear Studio has a queen log bed, table & chairs, flat screen TV and a bathroom with a walk in shower. There are no stairs coming into the house or into the Studio.

Just outside, on the large deck, there is a gas grill with a side burner for extra cooking options. Pots and pans are provided along with dishes and silverware. We live in the main portion of the house, offering 3 private guest suites for nightly/weekly rental. (There is no shared living space.) A perfect setting for a multi-family trip, traveling together but each having a private suite & bathroom.

About Robin

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 18 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.

Robin purchased this studio in 1999

Favorite new place in Steamboat

  • 5 of 5

I planned a last minute trip to Steamboat and found this gem. Being able to bring my dog was such a plus (Miller loved being able to explore the property and meet new people). The property is beautiful and well kept. A short walk across the street to ski down to gondola. Plus after is dumped was able to ski back to property (just head down Ski Trail Ln from the 1st stop of Christie lift). Robin was very outgoing and helpful, also very responsive to any questions/concerns. A storm moved in Saturday night/Sunday and I was even able to extend my stay an additional night to avoid the bad roads and take advantage of bluebird skies and champagne powder for another day.

Cozy Studio under the Gondola

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. it was very comfortable, in a great location, and had a great fenced in yard for our dog. The owner was very lovely and accommodating. We were welcomed with chocolates. When we realized that we had left our laptop charging cord behind, we called and she immediately mailed it to our home.
