Property Description

This property at The Rockies Condos has a lot to like.  It has a great location and many amenities to enjoy.  The condo has good quality, is thoroughly and comfortably equipped and furnished.  Unlike most other 1-Bedroom condos in Steamboat Springs, this property has a nice large King bed in the bedroom.  It also has a sleeping capacity of up to 5 people.  Here you'll enjoy nice views and be within walking distance of everything the ski resort base area has to offer.  If you don't feel like walking, don't worry.  During most of the ski season, this development is served by both a private on call shuttle service as well as the free city bus, both of which pick up and drop off right outside!  Overall, this property combines a lot of nice features with affordable pricing, giving you a great value for your Steamboat Springs vacation.  Please read on for more details on the development, the location, and the condo itself.

Before we go over how great the development and the location are, a little more about the condo.  You have to go down a flight of stairs from the parking area to enter the unit, but once you're inside, everything is on one level.. Just outside the front door, you'll see that there is a private ski locker right outside, an ideal place for storage if you're bringing your own skis or boards.  When you walk inside, you'll find a nice large open concept space.  The living room and dining room are one big room featuring hardwood floors.  The living room area has two very comfy futons, one a Queen size and the other a Twin, centered around an entertainment center and fireplace.  There is a large HDTV with Netflix and Pandora connected and available at the switch of an input.  Also, if you bring along an HDMI cable you can connect your device for additional media options.  Also off the living room is a nicely sized balcony.  The dining room has a nice large table that seats 6 comfortably for dining, cards, or games.  The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'd expect in the way of pots, pans, dishes and glasses, silverware and utensils.  You might even find some coffee, condiments, or spices and oils, though the housekeepers do clear out old stuff from time to time.  The kitchen has a bar with seating for 4 and connects to the main living and dining areas so you can enjoy the company you keep.  The bedroom is a good size, big enough for a nice King bed, nightstand, dresser, and a chair.  This room also has double closets and a wall mounted HDTV that you can watch from bed.  The bathroom is off the main area, but adjacent to the bedroom so it is convenient for those in the bedroom or if you have people sleeping in the living room.  The bedroom, living room, and balcony all face west, so you might get some nice sunsets!

The Rockies is known for being nicely located but fairly priced.   As we creep closer to the 2020s, the development has added to its list of well maintained on-site amenities and services.  There has always been a nice large heated pool that is open in both winter and summer seasons. The pool area also has two very large commercial hot tubs, and restrooms that make changing clothes very convenient.  This area has nice outdoor furniture for sunbathing, tables and umbrellas, and in summer, flower pots to complement the views of evergreens and mountains.  There is also a clubhouse, or amenity center.  This amenity building includes a ping pong table, a lounge area with TV, wireless internet, vending, and coin operated laundry center.  Best of all, the amenity center is right next to this condo building, very convenient.  Summer guests might also enjoy the sand volleyball court, and if you don't like volleyball, your kids might still enjoy this area!   

This property doesn't just have a nice amenities, though.  It has a great location and helpful services too.   The city bus purple line stops right outside the building in the winter season.  Though hours and schedules are subject to changes by the city, it typically comes by every 20 minutes from early morning to evening.  In the evening, again during ski season only, this development provides you with a private on call shuttle service.  This service is more like a taxi than a bus, taking you throughout town, wherever you need to go, with few or no stops in between.  This service is available in evenings only, but if you're headed out to eat, or back from the grocery store, the door to door service is very nice to have.  So why are these shuttles available in winter only?  Because from this development, in nice weather, walking throughout the base area is actually pretty easy, pretty pleasant, and there's plenty worth walking to!  The Rockies is located very close to the entire base area, and this building is the closest one in the development to everything.  You'll be just across the street and slightly below the Steamboat Grand hotel and conference center, which itself is right across the street from Gondola Square.  Fortunately, you'll have more than just a hotel room, and a lot more money in your pocket than guests who stay there.  The point is, this condo is located very much in the heart of the ski resort base village.  When you leave this building, you have about 70 to 100 yards of flat walking on Cornice Road towards Mt. Werner Circle.  Then you'll take a sidewalk along Mt. Werner Circle heading slightly uphill for about 75 to 100 yards.  At this point you are right by the main entrance of the Steamboat Grand, as well as Burgess Creek Road, and Clock Tower Square.  From here the walk is about 150 to 200 yards flat or slightly downhill into Gondola Square, Ski Time Square and Torian Plum Plaza.

Throughout the base area, you'll find many restaurants, bars, ski & snowboard rental shops, ski tuning, bike rentals, and so much more.   In winter season,of course you'll be hitting the ticket office, ski school, and the slopes!  If you're renting equipment, you'll be able to store your equipment right by the slopes every afternoon, which makes walking to and form the base pretty easy, a good warm up.  One other attraction you might not expect in winter is the Outlaw mountain coaster.  Bundle up and experience the thrill of America's longest mountain coaster.  Its really fun, especially at night.  The Rockies is also close enough to be within walking distance to other attractive areas of Steamboat's mountain village, ares that other properties are too far away from.  This includes the year round tennis center, the Strings in the Mountains music pavilion, and the Wildhorse Meadows Marketplace, which includes the movie theater.  In summer, the base area comes alive even more.  Burgess Creek flows out of the national forest and right through the village.  The stream flow is regulated to a gentle pace that makes it a safe and fun place for kids or adults to dip their toes and cool off for a bit. In fact there are a couple of sandy beaches along the banks of Burgess Creek.  You'll also find hiking and biking trails, a rock climbing wall,  a ropes course, bungee trampolines, mini golf, summer tubing lanes, and more.  Finally, don't forget that the ski area base is often host to events, including free concerts, movie nights, hot air balloon glows, ski and bike races, art shows.  This is the place to be!

Come see why The Rockies is such a great choice for your Steamboat vacation.  Please call or inquire if you have any questions.  Feel free to book online with confidence and our highly trained Vacation Rental Specialists, who are available 7 days per week, will be in touch to reconfirm your details and to help complete your booking.
