About the property

Located off Burgess Creek just below Thunderhead lift.

Because location matters, we welcome you to Trails Edge. Whether you’re planning a day of champagne powder skiing in the winter or hiking and mountain biking in the summer, all you have to do is step out the door. Choose to ski down to the mountain base via the Right O Way ski run (easy green run) or take a short walk up to the Thunderhead lift to access the top of the mountain for “first tracks”. The ski runs make great trails for hiking, mountain biking and even playing a round of disc golf on the 19 “hole” course during our gorgeous summer months. Our decks are a great place to watch hot air balloons rise over the valley, gaze up at Mt Werner and the Steamboat ski resort and of course our beautiful mountain sunsets. With the new addition, the deck is larger and features a gas grill and seating area.

After a day of outside fun, return to the house for some time to relax. Enjoy a soak in the hot tub, watch a movie or your favorite ballgame on the big screen TV, play a game of ping pong, or curl up with a good book and wait for the sunset – you won’t be disappointed. Your group can prepare a terrific meal in our newly remodeled kitchen which features a top of the line Jenn-Air range/oven. The open floor plan will invite everyone to gather for food and conversation around the dining room and breakfast bar with additional seating in the solarium.

When you’re ready to call it a night, we offer 5 bedrooms which sleep 14. Beyond the bedrooms is a redesigned queen+ sleeper sofa by American Leather which promises comfort for 2 in the upper level solarium. The lower level bedroom also doubles as a TV/ rec room and features accordion doors for privacy. There are 5 bathrooms, 2 new with this years addition and the other 3 with updates and remodeling completed for the 2014/15 season.

Just minutes away is charming, downtown Steamboat Springs. Filled with an abundance of fantastic restaurants and lots of shopping, it’s a great place to spend a day or evening. Be sure to visit Howelson Hill where many US Olympians train for Nordic ski jumping. Or have some fun of your own with snow tubing in the winter and riding the alpine slide in the summer, with an ice arena just a few steps down the street.

There are 3-4 parking spaces available. During snow season our road is rated '4 WHEEL DRIVE'. There are no deliveries by UPS & FedEx during these months. We strongly recommend 4 wheel drive vehicles only during this season. (Yes, the snow is that good!)

About Todd Stauffer

After graduating from Steamboat High School in 1981 it has always been my dream to come back to this area. With my parents' passing, I really wanted to keep this special property in the family. It is filled with lots of memories of holidays spent together watching our families grow. So with our children grown and now having grandchildren of our own we decided it was the perfect time to return to the mountain. We are so blessed to be able to live here in Steamboat and be able to share this place with others.

Todd Stauffer purchased this house in 2014

Why Todd Stauffer chose Steamboat Springs

When my parents purchased the land in 1976 my brother, sisters and I were absolutely amazed. We had been vacationing here for several years and were thrilled that they were going to build their home here.

What makes this house unique

We may be a little biased, but feel we have the best location at Mt Werner. Trails Edge offers not only ski-in/ski-out access, but also spectacular views in a quiet neighborhood setting. The home's 3 levels provide several separate living areas for guests to enjoy different activities.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The house was large enough to accommodate our group (14) comfortably. Great views of skiers and moose.

Ideal large group ski rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here Christmas week 2017 and it is the best ski in ski out experience we have ever had. The access to the slopes was about forty steps down a safe metal staircase, the run is an easy green that is open early in the season. The house was ideal for a large group gathering. Plenty of space for everyone to sleep and spread out but with a homey feel. The kitchen was will appointed with every appliances that you could need. The beds were comfortable and the heating system was great. Todd was a gracious host; very accessible and available from the duplex apartment. Plenty of board games and videos for the kids. Driveways and paths were cleared of snow and check out was a breeze. We would definitely stay here again.

Superb value for a large group! Views can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 14 (all adult-sized!) completely enjoyed our stay at Trails Edge and definitely hope to come back! Todd and Sherri were extremely accommodating and easy to communicate with. The house was clean and comfortable. The only tiny thing I would mention as an improvement would be to have a secured Wi-Fi connection for guests. Overall, we are very happy with our rental of Trails Edge and with our visit of Steamboat for a vacation/family reunion. We even got to take home some souvenir bear paw prints on our vehicles. Rest assured that we didn't ever see the bear that made them.

A delightful property that met our needs so well.

  • 5 of 5

The Stauffers could not have been more gracious hosts. Their home is spacious, comfortable, well equipped and located in a great spot. Our large family had a reunion there and the home worked so well. We were able to spread out comfortably, we tucked a sleeping bag in a spot or two and found a couple of perfect spots for pac-n-plays. The home gave great access to mt trails, town options and summertime ski area fun. We found all we needed in the kitchen and so meals were easy to prepare and serve. They have a couple of new fold out couches that are truly comfortable, the latest mattress that works well. We really found their welcoming spirit, quick answers to questions and excellent care to be refreshing to us all. Our family will outgrow this home but we will still have it on our list in the future, and will just add another to it. H McC July 2017

Beautiful home with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had an amazing stay in this home during the 4th of July week. The pictures do not give justice to the home. There are 3 levels, plenty of room to get away for private time or conversations. Todd and Sherrie are great hosts. We felt so welcome. Don't think twice about renting this property? It is fabulous!

Owner's Response: I want to thank you all again for coming to stay with us. You have a wonderful family. We like seeing extended family groups enjoy the home like ours has for so many years. I especially appreciate how you cared for the home as if it were your own. We would love to have you stay with us again in the future. And hopefully next time the fireworks won't be cancelled due to the dry weather.

Just step outside to access hiking and mountain biking trails. Thunderhead ski lift is just 200 yards up the hill which provides access to the 19 'hole' disc golf course.
