Terrific stay at the Porches in Steamboat. Beautiful 5 bedroom house. There were 12 of us, and there was plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was well equipped, the bedrooms were of good size, and the decor was great. It is a beautiful community. The Barn is a great place to swim, workout and hang out. The complimentary shuttle service was great. The staff was very accomodating. Our house was a bit close to Steamboat boulevard, and at times could hear traffic, but that was a minor inconvenience. Also, the A/C did not work extremely well. Late afternoons and into the early evening the house was a bit warm. The proches is a superb getaway venue. I would reccomend it to anyone. My family had a great time there!

Room Tip: The houses that back up to Steamboat Boulevard can hear traffic.

We have just returned from a week at The Porches and still have big smiles on our faces. We chose the Porches because of its location in Steamboat Springs, where we were planning to bring our family together for a reunion. The unit we selected was the Bristlecone model, with 4 bedrooms and four baths. There are pictures and floorplans on The Porches' website, which gave us a good idea of what our unit would look like. We were certainly not disappointed when we arrived. Our vacation home was 2041 Indian Summer Drive, and it was immaculate! The finishes and furnishings were top notch. Some of the décor was definitely not my style (many very large artificial plant arrangements), but that was something that I could live with. We had housekeeping services once during the week, and the home was thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom. During the rest of the week, it was great to have the full size washer and dryer to refresh the towels and linens. Other pros and very few cons are listed below.
Pros:
Awesome staff from front desk to concierge to shuttle drivers to housekeepers.
The shuttles will pick you up and take you anywhere you need to go in Steamboat
Great fitness facility
The property provided a complimentary barbeque for all guests and residents during the holiday weekend.
The property is very quiet, especially in the evenings.
A grill is available at The Barn for guest use, although it must be reserved in advance.
Cons:
The property is not pet friendly for rental guests. We would have loved to have our furry family members with us, and would not have minded paying any additional deposit or cleaning fees required.
The pool is too small for the number of residents and guests using it.
It was a bit of a pain having to go to The Barn to grill. It would have been much more convenient to be able to grill at our unit.
We would have liked to have more seating on the porch of our unit, to accommodate more than just two people.

Room Tip: The photos on the website are helpful in choosing your model, however, you will not necessarily get...

Our family group of 14 spent a week in late June enjoying time together and the glorious beauty of Colorado! The Porches was a perfect gathering spot for us with large spacious homes and an abundance of services to make our stay feel like a real vacation for everyone in the group!
The shuttle service was fantastic. We didn't have to load everyone up in three cars and find our way to our destination and then parking for everyone. The variety of activities available in Steamboat for all ages is perfect for a diverse group. The concierge made great recommendations on places to go, activity locations and helped to make all the arrangements.
The young cousins loved the Bunk Room, where they could all bed down together with a movie before it was lights out time! There was plenty of room for us all to spread out and not feel like we were on top of one another as well. A variety of gathering spots from the porch to the family room to the lower level TV room were all appreciated. The large kitchen had plenty of space for multiple cooks to be working on the family meals!
This is a top notch location for a family vacation!! Would recommend it to anyone!!

A group of 8 adults spent a weekend at the Porches. The home we stayed in was large and beautiful. The units were centrally located; it took just a couple minutes to get into town for meals. When we stayed in, the unit had a great kitchen. Everything we needed was easy to find, and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

A group of five adults stayed at the Porches for Spring Break. There is so much room, we all felt like we had the home to ourselves. One adult was a Chef, and he loved the Kitchen which is not a plus in many rentals. EVERYTHING is well thought out, and first quality finishes. The staff matches the home, and you can tell by their feedback they really like the management. All requests were immediately answered. When we called for the shuttle, we could see them pull out in less than a minute. Great place.

We need 5 bedrooms for family gatherings (east coast meets mountain west) is perfect for our needs and tastes. Steamboat Springs is a magical place for the many activities we all enjoy at our various ages ranging from 6 months to 66 years.

A group of 13 people, 6 kids, and 7 adults, stayed at the Ponderosa, a beautiful Porches home for spring break. The house was probably the most beautiful house we've ever stayed in...From the decor to the spacious rec room in the basement, to the well appointed kitchen, the place was amazing. The service was top notch as well. The shuttle drivers and Barn staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. We will be back again. Zero complaints.
