Usually when I travel, all I require is a place that is safe, conveniently located and clean, after all, I am just looking for a place to be unconscious and sleep.
Paul's place is more than that. It's a "traveler's find". You certainly can stay here to just sleep, but you'd be missing out. Paul makes you feel right at home. Your day starts off right with a flavorfuland sizeable breakfast (e.g. homemade French Taost with real maple syrup, or bacon & eggs, or southwestern juevos with a cup of strong hot coffeeor tea) in his kithchen that is guaranteed to keep your energy leavl high while your skiing down the mountain of fly fishing in the back country. Breakfast is topped off with some interesting conversation with Paul, his other guests, or some of the locals who stop by to say "hi".
Paul built his place ( literallly, he's an expereinced carpenter) with the help of friends and they did a beautiful job. Not your typical Colorado Victorian, it's a Southwestern Santa Fe style home that he shares with his dog Chica, and his guests. His place is in town, but tucked away from the commercialism, or craziness of a tourist area.
If you're new to the Steamboat area, Paul will help you find whatever it is you're looking for, be it a good place to rent skis, or where to go for good local back country cross country skiing or hiking. If you want to check out the nighlife, his place is less than 5 minutes off of main street (by car)and he'll give you the skinny on the local spots.
By the time you leave, you feel like you really got to know Steamboat from the inside out. I wouldn't stay anyplace else. If you read this, and decide decide to check him out, please tell him "Robin " sent you, and that I'll be back! Thanks.
