Our main purpose for choosing the Porches was because the lodges looked great and we already knew that Steamboat Springs was one of the best family cities to ski. The concierge was great before and during the stay. She notified us of a 25% discount on lift tickets and ski rentals, and she made the arrangements for us. When you are talking about 9 people, that is a lot to do. We liked the way that The Porches worked with local groups to improve service to visitors. They have an agreement with D2D to come to the lodge and fit skis, boots, and other equipment. They have an agreement with Ptarmigan Inn to store skis and poles at the end of the day. They also handle payment to the rental group and Steamboat Skiing with one bill to us.
Another thing that made it so much easier for us was the shuttle service. The drivers were prompt, courteous, and friendly. It almost seemed like they were a little psychic because we would walk out the door (from the lodge or from Ptarmigan Inn) and within minutes the shuttle was there.
The lodge (#1301) was great for our family (7 adults and 2 children (9 and 3)). The rooms were plenty big enough. The den was comfortable and everyone enjoyed the game room downstairs. We would definitely recommend The Porches to anyone!!!
