The Porches

The Porches

The Porches is a cluster of high end vacation homes that are just exquisite. The exteriors of these Colorado mountain homes have a beautiful western feel and blend well with the surroundings. The houses are very spacious and have been delightfully crafted with clever design and quality furnishings. As the name would suggest, each house features a relaxing porch where views of the mountains and valley can be enjoyed.

Where is The Porches?

The Porches neighbourhood is located just a little down from the Steamboat ski resort, about 0.7 miles from the base area at Gondola Square (a 2-3 minute drive). Downtown Steamboat Springs is 2.8 miles away (8 minute drive). The peaceful locale is away from the hustle of the ski resort base and the town, yet it’s close enough to allow easy access.

The Porches provide regular shuttle services between the ski resort and your house, and on-demand shuttles to get you anywhere around Steamboat Springs. Or if you have your own car, it’s pretty easy to drive into town because parking is not an issue.

House Features

The vacation homes are either 4 or 5 bedroom and are massive with 3,000 - 5,000+ square footage. Each Porches town home has beautiful lodging with:
  • Large bedrooms with their own master size baths
  • Master bedroom with gorgeous gas log fireplace
  • Spacious living area with masonry fireplace, superbly comfortable down filled couches, & dining table
  • Beautifully appointed professional kitchen with granite countertops
  • Large laundry
  • Heated 2 car garage
  • Wireless internet
Some of the larger houses also have a large recreation room with a billiards table.

The Barn

All guests have full access to The Barn, an elegantly appointed club house that is within easy walking distance of each of the houses. The Barn includes:
  • Indoor gathering space around the large fireplace and comfortable leather chairs
  • Outdoor gathering space with BBQ and fire pit
  • Outdoor pool and hot tubs
  • Flat screen TVs
  • Pool table and checkers table
  • Kitchen area where you can grab a coffee and muffin
  • Kids’ games room including a Wii

We enjoyed staying at the Porches so much that we didn’t want to leave! Staying at the Porches felt really homely. It’s easy to see why some people choose to buy one of the houses so they never have to leave!

We stayed in a 4 bedroom Bristlecone house. The living area was really roomy, the kitchen was huge, and the bedrooms were spacious. Even the master bathroom and the walk in-robe seemed massive. The house felt really big and we were surprised to find out that we had stayed in the smallest of the Porches houses!

The house was just beautiful; the design, the décor and furniture were all very tasteful and in keeping with a Colorado mountain home.

The staff support was excellent and we were impressed with the shuttle service up to the ski area and down to town – just a quick phone call and they were there in a flash to take us anywhere in Steamboat.

We can definitely recommend staying at the Porches.
