“A real find in downtown”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

While in Steamboat we happened onto a lovely, small and independent bookstore and it's not to be missed. The new book selection is wonderful but they also have a used book section on the upper level. The bookstore has a wonderful little coffee shop with perfect coffee, all varieties, and delicious homemade baked goods, the blueberry scones are a must!!

“Books, coffee, & great advice”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

I needed a gift for a family member and the staff at Off the Beaten Path recommended a great book in the genre I was looking for and it was based in Steamboat! Perfect. It was so easy I had time to look for a book for myself and of course pick up a children's book and teddy bear for the niece. I am so happy to have a quality bookstore in my backyard.

“Fantastic Bookstore!!”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Off the Beaten Path is one of the best bookstores I've ever been in. This great indie bookstore has knowledgeable and friendly staff members who go out of their way to help you find just the right book. Cozy ambiance, wonderful places to sit and read, and a terrific coffee shop. This should be on your places-to-go list when you visit Steamboat Springs.

“Don't miss this gem”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

We visit Off the Beaten Path everytime we stop in Steamboat Springs, and wouldn't miss an opportunity to find unusual books and gifts. Our latest visit in late June 2013 held everything we love about this shop - friendly and knowledgeable service, great coffee and snacks, new discoveries by local writers, and a quiet, inviting sitting area. We can usually find parking within a couple of blocks. If you love books, or need a vacation diversion, put this spot on your list.

“Books +++ and the coffee is great too!”
Reviewed 16 February 2013 via mobile

We have been coming to Steamboat regularly for 7 years and always love visiting this bookstore. It as a great selection of books - new and used and I always manage to find new reads to take home. The best part of the bookstore is the cafe and they make a really good espresso coffee (important as I am a fussy Aussie coffee snob) - it is a great place to grab a coffee on a cold snowy day and hang out in the used book section to see what gems you can find.
