Downtown Steamboat Springs
Steamboat Springs has been a vacation destination since the late 1800s. With deep roots in western heritage, the downtown area is within walking distance to luxury vacation homes, charming boutiques and restaurants, and the nation’s best small town rodeo. Known to the locals as “Old Town Steamboat”, you’ll find plenty of shopping on Main Street as you walk past historic buildings and cozy restaurants. There’s a nice mix of bungalows and cottages in downtown Steamboat, but if you’re on the hunt for a luxury vacation home to rent, be sure to check out residences at The Porches of Steamboat.
Fish Creek Falls
Fish Creek Falls sits just outside of downtown Steamboat Springs (approximately five miles east) with incredible views of Strawberry Park and South Valley. Named after a giant 280-foot waterfall, this is a common destination for people looking to hike the Yampa Valley. This area has become a popular place to look for vacation homes due to its quiet rural setting.
If living in the mountains is on your bucket list, consider looking to rent a vacation home in The Mountain. Approximately four miles south of Old Town sits this quiet resort area that offers a unique mix of shops and restaurants. There is an array of vacation condominiums surrounding Gondola Square which are popular among young professionals and couples. Here you’ll enjoy easy access to hiking trails, biking trails, and ski trails in the area.
Just one mile from downtown Steamboat Springs sits Strawberry Park. Its name was derived from the farmland in the 19th century that used to be filled with strawberries. Here you’ll enjoy long winding roads, the Buffalo Pass recreational area, and the famous Strawberry Hot Springs. You’ll see a lot of single family homes in this area of Routt County along with horse properties and cabins tucked into the woods.
South of Steamboat Springs off of Highway 131 you’ll find the picturesque town of South Valley. Comprised of high-end developments, this area offers two golf courses (one public and one private) and a plethora of outdoor opportunities that the entire family will enjoy. The Sarvis Creek Wilderness area is located in this part of Steamboat, which features 44,000 acres of hiking and camping grounds. If you’re a fan of fishing or boating, you’re sure to love South Valley.
