Steamboat Luxury Vacation Rentals

The perfect stay
in Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Think of perfect mountain scenes, deep powder snow and elegant ski lodges and you have Steamboat Springs. Sitting in the upper valley of the Yampa River and dominated by the towering Mount Werner, this is one of Colorado’s premier mountain resorts. What’s more, you’ll find an array of charming cabins and chalet rentals in Steamboat Springs and the surrounding area - the perfect hideaway for a cosy mountain break.

Once home to gold and silver prospectors, Steamboat Springs gets its name from the sound of the rushing river as heard by the miners as they burrowed into the hillsides in search of gold. Steamboat Springs also sits on some active geological features; in fact, one of ‘The Boat’s’ biggest attractions is its hot springs, which are renowned to have therapeutic properties.

During the winter months, it’s home to some of the most challenging black and diamond ski runs in the country, as well as safe beginner slopes for those who are new to the joys of skiing and snowboarding. When spring drives the snow away, the valley blooms and the hiking and mountain biking trails open up. Surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the Rockies and with every amenity you’ve ever dreamed of, Steamboat Springs’ luxury rentals make this a welcoming destination all year round.

Things you can’t miss
  • Explore Steamboat Square, which features an après ski plaza, cool restaurants and bars, stage for concerts and an ice rink.
  • Ride the Wild Blue Gondola which is the longest gondola in North America and the fastest ten-person gondola in the country.
  • Try night skiing - Steamboat is one of the few Colorado resorts to offer skiing after dark.

Best time to go

  • During spring: with glorious sunny days and crisp nights, spring in Steamboat is a delight. The river swells with meltwater from the mountains and the trout start to bite, making this an ideal time of the year for fishing. The trails start to thaw and open up for hiking and exploring, while in town a cluster of festivals, events and even the odd art class or two keep everyone entertained. Expect temperatures to still be on the low side, so make sure you have a jumper or two for those cooler evenings.

  • During summer: summer is hiking season in Steamboat Springs. The trek to Fish Creek Falls is well worth the effort, just don’t forget your camera. In town, the Steamboat Springs Rodeo brings in the crowds and the Strings Music pavilion puts on exceptional live music events all summer long. Summer temperatures can climb into the high 20s°C (around 80°F) but expect the thermometer to drop considerably into single figures once the sun goes down.

  • During autumn: autumn sets the valley ablaze in a riot of colour as the trees turn to gold and red. The landscape gets ready for winter, and the first falls of snow make an appearance above the treeline from early September onwards. Days are still warm, with temperatures around the low to mid-20s°C (around 77°F) until the end of September, when things start to get really cold. The big snow starts in November and runs through until the spring, providing a winter playground for skiers and snowboarders.

  • During winter: Steamboat Springs is known as one of the top Colorado winter destinations, and it’s easy to see why. Despite the heavy snowfall in the mountains, rain is a rarity, and the days are bright and sunny. You will need full winter gear if you’re heading onto the slopes, though, as temperatures rarely peek above 0°C (32°F) even at mid-day. Look out for events around the festive season that bring the town centre alive with partygoers and revellers.

How to get there

Make the journey as memorable as the arrival. Your dedicated Concierge can arrange transportation from the closest airport to your Steamboat Springs chalet.

By plane

Yampa Valley Regional Airport is only 22 miles from Steamboat Springs and is a busy hub for the area even in the winter. Denver Airport is also around three hours away and there are plenty of bus and shuttle services available.

By car

The most direct route from Denver to Steamboat Springs is the I-70 west to Silverthorne, with a diversion onto Highway 9 North and joining the US 40. During the winter, the drive over Rabbit Ears Pass can be treacherous. So if you’re staying at a chalet in Steamboat Springs it is essential to hire a 4x4 vehicle with winter tyres to make the trip safely.

Local tips

  • Steamboat Springs offers a comprehensive system of free public transportation between most major attractions.
  • The weather can change greatly from day to day, or even hour to hour in Steamboat Springs, so be sure to pack accordingly.
  • The adjustment to the altitude of a ski town can sometimes be difficult, so plan to take it easy for the first day or two of your trip.
