  • Description


    My wife and I live just outside of Steamboat Springs, a small resort town in the Rocky Mountains of northwest Colorado where we have endless recreational opportunities throughout the year. We are about 20 minutes from the world class Steamboat ski resort. The Yampa River runs through our town and right near our house and we have some amazing hot springs about 30 minutes away.

    I work as a real estate agent primarily and she works as a teacher and counselor. We have a garden and greenhouse that always needs attention and live in an older house that we are perpetually remodeling. There is always a project.. or six going on at our place. I am also working on a few websites that I would love some help with and I am always open to assistance with internet marketing.

    We are easy going folks that love the outdoors and having a good time. We have a small dog that likes to take walks and loves when we have guests. We enjoy spending time with friends, travelling, good food and lots more. We cook a lot at home eating fairly healthy and we are happy to cook extra for our guests. We practice tai chi, yoga and meditation. Depending on the season, we also enjoy rafting, kayaking, snowboarding, hiking, biking and gardening to name a few. We are happy to loan out our gear to make it easy for our guests to enjoy the many recreational opportunities.

  • Accommodation


    One bedroom apartment detached from our house next to and above our garage/workshop. The bedroom, living room and large deck are upstairs above the garage while the kitchen and bathroom are downstairs. Staircase is exterior as of now, but one of the projects we would like assistance with is closing the staircase in... The upstairs rooms have fairly low ceilings but you get used to it, unless you are very tall. We keep things nice and clean and strive to make the space comfortable. Kitchen is fully equipped and has gas cooking stove. Bath has large jetted tub with plenty of room for 2. Queen sized bed and sleeper sofa are upstairs; high speed internet and satellite television are included.
