“Excellent ski-in ski-out condo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2013

This is my family's 4th stay at Ptarmigan house.

Really friendly staff, comfortable 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condos in a great location just a short ski down to the ski school and gondola. Even has a spa in the snow.

Wireless internet, maid service every 2 days, great facilities, underground car parking and close to most attractions in Steamboat.

Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: I like the ground floor condos best.

We stayed there this time last year, late review I know but we just joined trip advisor and enjoyed our time at Ptarmigan House so much that we thought it deserved a review.

The staff were all so welcoming and it truly felt like home when we returned every day after skiing.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom/1 bath whose Owners had decorated the place perfectly. There was plenty of room, electric fire place, really well equipped kitchen and a balcony overlooking the resort. Being part of Steamboat Resorts they supply a free bus every 20mins which is perfect for going to the local supermarket and downtown restaurants.

We are looking forward to staying at Ptarmigan House next year, when we can get our names on the board as returning guests.

After having a horrible time with a cabin I had rented over the internet, I found myself scrambling to find a hotel at 10pm, I got the Ptarmigan on Hotwire.com. The local Holiday Inn had an employee finishing a shift and one starting. The one finishing was a lovely young lady that was trying to get me the best rate possible, which still wasn't close to the Hotwire 3 star price, while the cranky guy coming on shift told me he wouldn't even try to get me a room and would have turned me away when I walked in. Why??? I assume because he's a lazy butt who didn't want to mess with checking someone in that late. Either way, when I got the Ptarmigan and walked in, they had a similar situation, one going off one coming on, and BOTH went above and beyond to help my frazzled self into a room. The beds weren't the best, but we were exhausted and didn't care. The balcony faced the ski lift, so skiers would be at the perfect ski in ski out spot. We only stayed one night because we needed a bigger room, and their suites were full, but would definitely consider staying here again.

We stayed here over spring break with our kids and we had a great time. The girls at the front desk were excellent. This place is close to everything. The shuttle bus was great to get to town, dinner etc. The accommodation was comfortable and met our needs, housekeeping staff great.

We stayed at Ptarmigan House in Feb 2010. Our condo was perfect and the ski in ski out was amazing for our children. The front desk staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Any question was answered and dinner reservations were made for us. The condo was newly updated with a great view of the Flat Top mountains. Daily coffee in the lobby was a nice perk!

Having young children at ski school was so easy as Ptarmigan is steps from the slopes and the childrens meeting areas. Steamboat winter carnival was such a great event to add to the wonderful skiing. We had three generations and everyone had a great time.

The Ptarmigan House is a fantastic place to stay and we loved the sauna too!

The Ptarmigan House has an excellent location less than one minute away from the slopes and right at the Steamboat ski school. We stayed in unit 20, which has a queen bedroom and two sofabeds in the living room. The bathroom was adequate and the kitchenette was well appointed. There were plenty of towels, bathrobes, and nice Aveda toiletries. The Ptarmigan House has a nice sauna and a passable hot tub, but guests have access to a much nicer hot tub and outdoor pool at the adjacent Ptarmigan Inn. This is one of the most reasonably priced accommodations in the area, and an excellent value.

We stayed at Ptarmigan House for 10 nights in a large one bed condo. Apartment was a good size, and suited our family of four. The front desk staff were very obliging (except for the following issue), and the location was excellent.
Our problem was that three families from Australia had booked 6 months ago to be together in the complex, but one of the families was told on arrival that there was a plumbing problem "the pipes had burst", and they had been rebooked in another complex further down the street. This caused some inconvenience when one of this family injured her knee and became house bound. Any get togethers had to be at her apartment as the roads and sidewalks were very icy and dangerous.
It was also rather strange that the same person on the front desk at Ptarmigan House later during the week then denied any knowledge of a "plumbing problem". We suspect there was an overbooking, or the owner wanted the condo...
Our only other concern was that the soundproofing between our bedroom and the adjoining condo meant that we heard their television every morning and evening, and the coughing through the night.
