Our family (9 Total with Grandma) decided last minute to take a long weekend and get away. We wanted a place close to town, but away enough so we could have breathing room and space for the kids to run free, take walks and relax. This home was beyond our greatest expectations. The space was perfect! We had two families meeting there and wanted a large communal space as well as private spaces. The layout was perfect. It has a very spacious LR and DR just off the beautiful Kitchen with views that go on for miles. The basement is fully furnished with 3 bedrooms and smaller seating area for kids to play games etc. Two more bedrooms upstairs including a huge private loft space. Once we all settled in and unpacked the kids immediately ran outside and left their iPads behind. We walked to the neighbors horses and let the kids pet them. We were able to watch them easily from the huge front deck overlooking miles of mountains and fields. Lots of wildlife everywhere! At night we settled in, watch a movie on the huge TV after relaxing in the hot tub. Next day we ventured out to the Waterfall and Natural Hot Springs.. A MUST DO! The next day, the moms, grammy and girls went horseback riding about 20 minutes away for two hours later that afternoon thanks to the suggestion of our Hosts! Our last day we toured around town, went shopping and ate BBQ along the river, and checked out the ski area on our way out. We will be back every year if we can!

Tom & Kris Corl
The Corl's home was everything described! Instructions were left for use of the hot tub, the TV, and the Dish satellite. While we already had planned what to do during our stay; there were magazines with area attractions, points of interest, and maps of the area, which was thoughtful. The kitchen had all the amenities and made it easy for us to prepare and serve meals for our group. The big dining table was great for breakfast and evening conversations over meals. Plenty of room to stretch out and relax after a long day of activities. The view was spectacular and we thoroughly enjoyed those views from the large deck!
The Corl's house was great for our group of 10. They were in Belize during our stay but their property manager Tim was extremely responsive. The house is about 5 miles out of town up in a very nice, quiet neighborhood, with a great view off the back deck of the surrounding mountain range. Plenty of living space, and hot tub to boot. Would stay again.
Great neighborhood and house, we had a great long weekend. Everyone was impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was. Also, we especially enjoyed how dog-friendly Tom and Kris are.
We had a great experience renting this property. It is a beautiful setting and the house was able to comfortably accommodate our whole party. The kitchen was completely stocked, which made it easier for us to cook meals. The views are spectacular. And the Corl's were just fabulous - accommodating, attentive and available when we needed them. Fabulous experience in all respects.
We had a great experience in this fabulous mountain home! The home fit 10 people very comfortably and was beautifully decorated, clean, and cozy. The kitchen was extremely well stocked - not only with dishes, but also with spices, olive oil, condiments - all those little things that you don't want to be taking with you on a trip.
Kris and Corl live right next door and were very pleasant and accommodating with departure/arrival times.
We brought our dog with us on the trip and we were pleased to find water and food bowls, treats, tennis ball chucker and even some toys in the yard for her. All those things combined with gorgeous views and hot tub made for a really enjoyable weekend. If another opportunity arises, we would be happy to come back to this house.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Of all the vacation rentals I've rented, Kris & Tom's was our favorite. Kris and Tom's place was beautiful and the views were amazing! Kris & Tom were the most friendly I've ever encountered. Kris even walked her dog with me and my dog. I hope my travels take me back to Steamboat Springs so I can stay at their place again.
We have lived in this wonderful community for a very long time. Tom just sold an auto repair business he owned for 35 years. Kris resently retired from Sysco Food Service of Denver after 20 years. Boating and camping is our love during the summer months, spending a lot of time at Steamboat Lake, a few miles north. We also spend as much time as possible at our home in Ambergris Caye, Belize, as scuba diving and underwater photography are our other passions.The Yampa Valley area is one of the most heart warming areas I have ever lived. Tom and I chose this home because we wanted more of a country lifestyle, than we had living in Old Town Steamboat. Now we have gorgeous, expansive view of the Yampa Valley and the surrounding mountains. And along with the beauty, is the peaceful serenity.
