About Fergus Thomas

Welcome to our home! We recently moved to Steamboat from Atlanta, GA and are excited to share our home with you. We live next door with our children and look forward to helping your family have an amazing time in Steamboat!

Fergus Thomas purchased this house in 2017

Why Fergus Thomas chose Steamboat Springs

We bought this property because of the views! Every room has an amazing view across the valley. We regularly see moose, bear, elk, mink, marmots, and with our elevated decks you can enjoy them in safety and without them even noticing you! The home is also very close to the ski mountain (3-5 min drive to the main parking area where a free shuttle takes you to the base). In the summer, it's a 5 minute walk down the hill (in winter that walk back uphill can be tricky though). The home was built for family time together with 2 Great Rooms built for hanging out with family in mind.

What makes this house unique

This property is about the views! Every night the sunset is incredible over Emerald Mountain. Sitting up high, you look over the golf course and have unobstructed views from every room. The home has 5 different balconies pick from.

Comfort features:

- Radiant in-floor heat which is warmer and won't dry out the air

- Heated driveways & garage: no shoveling or getting snowed in!

- Private hot tub

Wonderful home and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this home in Steamboat was perfection. The house was giant (we only had 6 people so it felt like a mansion!), but cozy. We spent lots of time hanging out there and even had a chef come one night to make dinner. The hot tub was the perfect way to end a ski day. Views were incredible (we got to watch a hot air balloon float over the valley one morning, which was awesome!). The best part of the house were our amazing hosts! They were so accommodating, helpful and had great suggestions. I will definitely come back to stay here again!

A wonderful experience!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this home for my 40th birthday getaway. The house was comfortable and well-maintained, and the location is perfect. Fergus and Katie went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. Would highly recommend this property to anyone!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my birthday with a group of friends and family and it couldn't have been better! The views are stunning and the home is beautiful. Every room was stocked with everything we needed and the kitchen was equipped with all the pots/pans serving dishes for us to make meals! We had so much fun enjoying the hot tub and pool table and playing games in the bar area! Overall, wonderful memories were made in a beautiful home! Fergus and Caity were very accommodating, patient and helpful!

Our home is close to the main ski area (less than 3 minute drive or 5-10 minute walk). The home sits elevated over the valley giving breathtaking unobstructed views of the entire valley. You can watch fireworks from downtown steamboat or just enjoy the nightly sunset from the deck or just about any room in the house. We're very close to the main grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants, and hospital. Downtown Steamboat is a short 8 minute drive. We're close to it all but on a nice quiet street. You likely see wildlife around the house especially if you sitting on one of the elevated decks.
