About the property

2.5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Winterwood Townhomes is a small complex (16 Units Total) that is nestled in an aspen grove that borders the National Forest and is set alongside the lovely Burgess Creek. This setting provides our guests romantic and quiet seclusion and a beautiful mountainside setting for your Steamboat getaway - yet is still minutes from dining, shopping, and the ski lifts. If you value being in a mountain setting where you look out the window and see the forest and wildlife (vs other condos) then Winterwood is the only option at this price point you will find in Steamboat.

Our home offers 1600 square feet of living space on three levels. This unit was extensively remodeled in 2013 and has all new furnishings. It was updated with top of the line Alder, Hickory, Granite, and Quartzite finishes. It is appointed with artwork and ski memorabilia that highlight the history of skiing and Steamboat Springs. This evokes the warmth and feeling of ski chalet the minute you walk in the door.

The unit has three floors and can accommodate up to 8 people. The main level has an open floor plan and contains the living area, dining area, kitchen with breakfast bar, full bath, and mud room. The centerpiece of the living area is a beautiful natural stone fireplace with a mantel from an old Amish barn. The lower level contains a bedroom with a queen and bunk beds, a full bathroom, and a dry sauna. The upper level contains the Master bedroom with a king bed and full bathroom and steam shower (which is awesome after a cold day on the slopes). Off of the Master Bedroom is a Sun Room that we converted into a bedroom (for our daughter). This has large windows that overlook the forest and contains an loft bed, a couch, and a TV.

The deck is particularly beautiful and peaceful in the summer as the creek is flowing just outside, in front of the deck with a lovely bridge over it. It is equipped with a gas grill and a table that seats 4. Be sure to keep you camera handy as you are relaxing on the deck or in the living room. We have seen bear, moose, elk, fox, weasels and porcupines from our deck and in walks through our neighborhood.

The unit has flat screen TV’s in the living room and each bedroom and has a full washer and dryer. A heated pool and hot tub is available at the Scandinavian Lodge located a 5 minute walk up the street. During the winter a free shuttle service is provided to take you to the lifts, pool or to restaurants and shopping.

As an avid skier one of the best amenities the property has to offer is it’s proximity to the Thunderhead Express lift. This lift typically does not get the crowds you will find at the base and provides access to the same point as the gondola. This is a 5 minute shuttle ride (10 minute walk) away. As a mountain biker, hiker, and snowshoer we enjoy the fact that Winterwood borders the trailhead of the CreekSide Trail that follows Burgess Creek up into the national forest and ski area.

About Mark and Anne Marie

We are a professional couple who enjoy the many outdoor activities that Colorado and Steamboat Springs have to offer. For many years we used the home every weekend and holiday during the winter months as we raised our 2 children who were active in competitive winter skiing.

Why Mark and Anne Marie chose Northwest

We purchased this property because it is the one of the only townhome properties in Steamboat Springs that is located in a natural wooded setting, it's close proximity to the Thunderhead Lift, and the fact that it borders the National Forest. This setting was ideal as a weekend and holiday ski house for our family during the winter and adjacent to hiking during the summer. It has proven to be an awesome 'skiers' location for us.

We also loved the location for summer activities and the campsite feel the property provides during the summer. We loved it's setting along side of Burgess Creek and next to the National Forest and the sense of being out in the woods that the location provides.

What makes this townhome unique

This is truly a skiers home due to it's proximity to the Thunderhead Lift - the location cannot be beat! It's simply the best way to get up the mountain on a powder day. We have one of the 2 shuttles allowed to drop skiers at that location. You are literally dropped at the lift.

For summer activities the Creekside Trail is across the street. This trail follows Burgess Creek into the National Forest and up into the ski area. That trail can be used for both hiking and mountain biking as well as snowshoeing in the winter. If you are lucky you might even see a moose, bear, or fox strolling along Burgess Creek as you enjoy relaxing on the deck.

Beautiful and comfortable!

Fantastic townhouse with all the touches! We were so comfortable. Loved the patio overlooking the creek. Convenient to markets and town. Fantastic hiking just up the road. What more could we ask for! Would definitely stay again in the future.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo over 4th of July weekend. We were so pleased with this unit and all of the amenities it had to offer. Spacious, clean, and stocked with everything you would ever need in regards to the kitchen, linens, etc. Beautiful views and privacy off of the back deck and we loved being able to hear the rushing creek from inside the condo. Great location as you are just a few minutes from downtown Steamboat. There were even bike racks in the parking lot for all of our bikes. Steamboat Spring is a fantastic place for families for 4th of July weekend. We enjoyed biking, tubing, Alpine Slide, Hot Springs with waterslides, fishing on Steamboat lake and golfing. Great shops and restaurants. The pancake breakfast and parade on July 4th were great and we topped off the day with the rodeo and fireworks show. I would recommend this unit to anyone coming to Steamboat.

This is the 2nd year in a row we've stayed here and unless we can get a free place to stay somewhere else, we'll be back! As usual the chalet is in excellent condition, very comfortable, well stocked, perfect for our 2 families and one of the best features continues to be the access/shuttle to Thunderhead Express. On Saturday we were up skiing while friends of ours waited an hour in the gondola line at the base! Suckers!! :) We also take advantage of the hot tub and pool at the Scandinavian everyday after skiing. Plus, the owners (Mark and Anne Marie) are great people. Again, I can't see going anywhere else now unless it's free!

Spring skiing

  • 5 of 5

This was a spring skiing trip for us and we had not been to Steamboat in a number of years. This is a wonderful and comfortable condo with a good location. The unit includes everything you need especially in the kitchen. Nice quality and well maintained. Loved the decor, feeling and comfort. You will not be disappointed.

As with choosing any condo pay attention to the bedroom setup. This condo is well set for a family or two with children. The 'third' bedroom off the master has a single bunk and a futon that is comfortable for kids but not adults. The master bedroom is very nice with an 'excellent king bed' but supporting four adults in the flow through bathroom can be inconvenient.

The queen bedroom also has a bunk bed basically at the foot of the queen. Again, good for adding children but not two more adults.

The owners are excellent to work with and the shuttle service that comes with the condo is great. During the day there is constant loop every thirty minutes that dropped and picked us up at the Thunderhead Express lift. Wonderful ! Using the service (free) to transport to and around town was very easy and efficient.

Great home for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by how well stocked this home is - the kitchen has everything including basic food needs like flour, sugar, coffee, etc. Great cookware if you like to cook. Plenty of linens...all we needed were groceries. The deck overlooking the creek was wonderful for having dinner. It's a beautiful setting. The home is beautiful and very spacious. While no views of the mountains, the creek by the deck was wonderful. Lots of hiking nearby. Mark is wonderful to work with. We look forward to staying again!
