The Porches pay homage to the great western legacy of Steamboat Springs, where skiing was once the only method of transportation during the harsh Rocky Mountain winters. Over time, skiing evolved into the sporting passion that it is today—the Steamboat Ski Resort opened in 1963. The rigors of the local climate inspired the building design at The Porches, where natural-stain exteriors complement accents of corrugated metal. In your superbly appointed residence, the exquisite details found in the hand-hewn wood beams and rancher's stone fireplaces are the result of Old World craftsmanship that is at once modern and comfortable. Just beyond your door, a set of communal walkways and a meandering creek run through the property, inviting you to take a stroll. Nearby you’ll come upon The Barn, a richly styled and elegantly appointed meeting place as well as a refuge, where you may enjoy the breathtaking views of Mt. Werner and the surrounding Yampa Valley. Perfect for family gatherings, The Barn exudes warmth and welcome—an exquisite home base from which to explore the year-round delights of this rustic retreat. The Porches residences are some of the most spectacular and impeccably crafted homes ever built in Steamboat Springs, and are constructed with the highest standards of quality, workmanship and thoughtful design. These residences range from 4,000 to 5,000 square feet and contribute to a sense of enduring quality and mountain ambience.
