About Owner's Phil and Linda...No resort fee/no management company

After years of coming to Steamboat, a few years ago I came upon this house as it was almost finished being built...It was just breathtaking inside and out. The setting was like no other home in Steamboat.I just knew it had to be a spec home and was being built for someone...I asked the workers if this home was sold,and they said 'No'. I knew right then,it was the house for me and my family.

Owner's Phil and Linda...No resort fee/no management company purchased this house in 2005

Welcome to the Cabin!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Sep 8, 2005

If you are looking for a comfy cabin nestled in the Steamboat Mountains then you’ve found the perfect place. This little bear had a wonderful time in this beautiful homey cabin. The beautiful decorations throughout the whole house made it a quiet relaxing retreat. It was the perfect place to come with my friends for the weekend. When entering the cabin we were greeted with a beautiful gift basket complete with wine to enjoy. With 4 spacious bedrooms each with their own private bath there was plenty of privacy for all of us. The best part was sitting in front of the fire and playing games with my friends all night long. It felt just like we were at home. We didn’t want to leave when our vacation was over. The only problem we had was trying to decide whether to cook outside on the grill and enjoy the beauty of the mountains or cook inside in the gourmet kitchen. Either way I was happy because this little tummy was full! If it had been ski season I would have been out on the slopes which are within walking distance. I was able to sooth my aching muscles in our very own private hot tub. We were even able to see a deer and her two fawn right outside our back door. What could be better then that? Don’t look any further! If you want a beautiful cozy house to stay at then you’ve already found the place. The VRBO Bear

Great place for a family to vacation

  • 5 of 5

Four generations enjoyed a week together in this lovely home. The open kitchen dining and living room encourage togetherness for playing games, working puzzles, watching movies etc. the garage and downstairs entry are great for storing ski equipment. The proximity to the Thunderhead lift makes for quick access to the slopes. Wonderful vacation

We had an excellent experience.

  • 4 of 5

This place is clean and the layout works well for groups. We joked that we didn't even have the time we wanted to enjoy the basement bar since we were busy enjoying the backyard deck. The kids loved the loft.Kitchen was fully equipped with more extras than expected. The only thing that surprised me as I thought this was a home but this is actually a twin home. Regardless it didn't matter. The beds were so comfortable. Would absolutely stay again and owners were very helpful.

Glorious Steamboat Summertime Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Sticks and Stones for the month of July last year (apologies for the slow post, Phil!) and loved it so much that we consider Steamboat Springs and that spot alongside the laughing brook, Burgess Creek, to be paradise. The place is expansive, comfortable, private, beautiful -- and really, the gurgle of the creek every night through open windows is therapy for the city-paced soul. Steamboat is warm during the days but we could open windows each night all through the house and close them in the morning and the temperature was always just right. The hot tub on the secluded back deck is perfect after bike rides in the surrounding hilly climes. We felt perfectly at home, and I can recommend Phil's glorious retreat without reservation. It's awesome!

Incredible winter get-away.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 9 stayed at this beautiful home at the end of February. Let me tell you, we could not have been more comfortable in this house. Not only do you feel immersed in the beautiful snowy surroundings, but the convenience to the mountain is a huge bonus. We frequently used the shuttle to get to the slopes as well as around town. We had a rental car, but didn't have the need to use it much at all. The amenities were great, especially the hot tub! After a long day of snowboarding, soaking in the hot tub was definitely a necessity. The house itself is well maintained and felt like a cozy home away from home. The location is easily accessible, and great for families who are ready for time on the slopes, as well as exploring around town. We have every intention of returning to the wonderful place in the future!

30 x 2 Birthday Group

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to come to Steamboat and to stay at Sticks and Stones. Our stay was even better than we expected. The house is beautiful. Heated garage is a real treat when it is cold outside. The house is located closer than we thought to slopes, which is great. We had 42 inches of snow in the 2 weeks while we were there. We woke up to plowed driveways and the hot tub was brushed off and ready for use after skiing. The beds were very comfortable.The fireplace is just what you need to cozy up for the evening. Easy to get to downtown area and all the great restaurants. Don't book next January, because we will want to come back.

Great Skiing (levels for everyone)... Steamboat Skiing is the BEST FAMILY SKIING ANYWHERE! The Mountain is all new,NOW with Skiing at night!! Also,30 minutes from the house you have got to rent snowmobiles and ride the 'continental divide'...Spring and Summer bring rafting down the Colorado River, or just grab a tube on the Yampa in town, Horseback Riding in the continental divide, or fly fishing is nearby. Riding ATV's is a blast and 30 minutes away. Also a you can be in the Rocky Mountain National Park in a couple hours or head out of town to see Dinosaur fossils by the state line.
