“Great location, helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2010

Check-in was a breeze and the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. We had never been to the area before but it was easy to find our way downtown because The Ranch was in such a great location. The condo was 2 bed, 2.5 bath, beds okay, not the greatest in comfort. Washer/dryer in the unit was very conveinient. Hot tub very close to our condo. Balcony had great view. Overall it was a great place to stay, I would definitely stay there again!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2010

We just stayed in a 3 bed, 3 bath condo at The Ranch for 5 nights on a family ski trip (5 adults). We drove in from Denver, arrived at 2am - still easy to find and get checked in that late. The lodging and location exceeded our expectations. The shuttle service was a huge bonus because everyone was free to be on their own schedule for skiing or a drive into town at any time. We experienced excellent customer service and the pool and hot tub hit the spot after a long day on the slopes. Our condo had a great view of the mountain which was a wonderful surprise. I was originally worried the condo was going to be dated (photos online looked old) but we got lucky with a flat screen TV in living room, recently updated granite counter tops in kitchen and bathroom tiles in our unit. We tried to stay in and cook meals to save money - the unit has everything you would need. The washer/dryer was also great to have for those of us who needed to wash socks and long underwear!

My wife and another couple stayed at the Ranch at Steamboat and enjoyed everything it had to offer. We appreciated the great view of the ski slopes from our balcony, how close we were to the lifts (about a 2 mile drive) and the hot tub 20 yards away from the balcony. We had a great time and plan on coming back to stay at the Ranch! The only thing I could really suggest is taking out the twin beds and atleast upgrading to a queen if not a king size bed, but I definetly loved the Vizio plasma TV, which we were not expecting. Thank you

We've been going to Steamboat for years--great little town, usually good snow (but check ahead of time--some years are better than others)--this year we thought we would treat our family to a condo at The Ranch over the New Year's holiday--it really wasn't that busy. The reservations, the check-in, the condos (ridiculously over-priced for a bunch of twin/bunk beds for adults!!), non-working appliances, unclean dishes, inept check-out--all were just awful at this facility. I spoke to the manager who barely summoned up "I'm sorry" but we're OUT OF THERE! They got 3-4 inches while we were there but it's been a dry year---they should try to make up for lack of snow with good customer service; don't waste your time with this property company.

The Ranch is perfect. This is my 4th trip there. It is not ski in ski out, but has direct on mountain views. without paying on mountain pricing. They have a private shuttle and ski storage with an on mountain ski store so there is no carrying of skis as you are driven to and from the ski store. NO car is necessary as they shuttle you to anyplace in town, for groceries, restaurants etc. The condos are spacious with a terrifc living room, full kitchen and dining room. There is at least a bathroom for every bedroom (1-4) and most are interior bathrooms. Each unit has its own washing machine and dryer. They pick up the trash and change towels daily and change the bed linens in mid week.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2009

We were fortunate enough to get to go to The Ranch at Steamboat in Steamboat Springs CO for a long July 4th weekend and getaway. We had heard The Ranch was very nice and the best for families and being a family of 5 (3 boys 8,11 & 13 - with a friend) now at 6 we needed family friendly but comfort and an easy vacation. The pool, tennis courts and hot tubs were great. Big pool, facility with saunas and a big hot tub. The boys played for hours with ours and another family, Bouncing from pool to tennis.

The service from the management company - Mountain Resorts who we have used before- this time was a step up, not down as seen recently in cost cutting measures at other places. The one day as we were wanting to get tennis rackets & balls to get everyone out, they offered and delivered the rackets and balls to us at our condo in 5 - 10 minutes and with a smile. They did not need to do this and we offered to come and get them but they insisted. This was a seemingly small but I thought great attitude. They also had coupon books for town activities to help stretch the budget. These came in handy going to the town Hot tub and pools one day.

The 3 bedroom condo was spacious good beds and a surprise loft not advertised. Of special note was how well equipped the condo was with kitchen utensils. This is sometimes one of our pet peeves as we like to cook meals in a good bit of the time. TV's in most rooms made for happy kids as well and games.

I sure am looking back to my next trip to the Ranch as is our entire family. Not always easy to get the unanimous decision from our group, but they did on this trip.

This was our third time staying at the Ranch, and we love it! It is a quiet and secluded, away from the busy village near the ski gondola...just the way we like it. The accomodations are comfortable and roomy. It really is a gem.
