About the Property

Log Cabin, Private Land, 3Br + Loft (3 Queens, 2 Twins), 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Amazing One-of-a-Kind property. This Log Cabin is nestled in an Aspen grove looking out onto a 42 Acre private valley. The best of both worlds, total seclusion and only 15 minutes from Steamboat Springs and Ski Area, and five minutes from Stagecoach Reservoir. Sleeps eight to ten in three queen beds and two twin beds.

In the winter, cross-country ski, snow shoe and sled on our private 42 Acres of unparalleled natural beauty.

In the summer, hike and walk for hours on our private aspen-lined road and single track trails.

Our cabin is located on private land where your kids can run around and explore our forests, hills, Aspen glens and pasture for hours.

Hot tub and have a romantic fire outside in our outdoor fireplace. Relax outside on our 1200+ square foot wrap-around deck with stunning views of Steamboat Mountain and our private pasture and valley.

Built in 2005, it has every modern amenity including Italian tiled radiant heat floors, an indoor/outdoor fireplace and clawfoot tub. You will feel like you have stepped back in time as you cook on the Heartland stove or read tucked into a bay window seat. The picture window looks directly at Steamboat ski area and over a 22 acre pasture; watch for elk, deer, fox, weasels, and hawks.

In the winter, head in to town and catch a free shuttle to the ski area. In the summer, hike in the aspen forest for amazing wildlife viewing near the stream. Drive two minutes to Stagecoach Reservoir for boating or mountain biking. Or try Gold Metal trophy trout fishing on the tailwaters of the Yampa River below Stagecoach Reservoir.

There are three bedrooms on the main level, each with a queen-size bed. The master bedroom has french doors out to a private deck. The other bedrooms each have a bay window with a deep nook for reading / relaxing. The loft has two built-in oversize twin beds.

The great room consists of a dining area, living room, and open kitchen. A leather couch and cozy arm chairs circle the stone fireplace. There are two bathrooms, one with a clawfoot tub/shower, and one with an tiled shower stall. The large deck is covered and allows protected seating around the outdoor fireplace.

At Dry Creek Ranch, you can hike the 42 acres, sit on the deck next to the outdoor fire, watch wildlife cross the pasture, snowshoe or cross country ski. Within two to twenty minutes of the cabin, the Steamboat Springs area offers and endless list of activities: summer includes Rodeos, alpine slide, biking and bike rentals, boating, free summer concert series, cattle drives, climbing, fly-fishing, golf, horseback riding, hot air ballooning, hot springs and pool, hunting, rafting and tubing, spa services, and tennis.

In the winter, you can add downhill and cross country skiing or snowboarding, dog sledding, powder cat skiing, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. Please visit the Steamboat Springs Chamber of Commerce website for more details and reservations.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We have visited the Steamboat Springs area for over 20 years. During our first visits to Steamboat, we fell in love with the broad range of year-round activities and the low key attitude of the community. In the winter, our family enjoys snowshoing, skiing, sledding, snowmobiling, and relaxing in the nearby hot springs. During the summer, we enjoy hiking, fishing, horseback riding, tubing the Yampa River, and just sitting on the porch watching the deer and elk graze in the pasture. Dry Creek Ranch has truly been a blessing and we hope that you enjoy the experience as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Oak Creek, CO, USA:
There are hundreds of properties to rent near Steamboat. This place is truly unique. You are totally secluded here, but still less than 15 minutes from town. You have to really try to even see a very distant rooftop off in Yampa Valley. As far as the surrounding area is concerned, we chose Steamboat Springs because it's an old west community that happens to have an amazing array of the latest outdoor activities in it's back yard, as opposed to a ski area that built a town at it's base. We love that the foundation of this community was built on a true western ranching lifestyle. Now add a world class ski area and and Olympic Winter Sports Training Facility (Howlson Hill) and you have the making of a truly special place.
