I am planning a trip to visit Colorado this summer, and am looking for a place to stay near Steamboat. I recall seeing a website for a luxury hotel/resort near (perhaps 20-30 miles away) when I was planning a ski trip several years ago. I recall that it was too far from the slopes when going skiing, but thinking that it would great in the summer . My recollection is that this place had horses, fly fishing, shooting sports, and mountain biking, and fine dining, ...everything I am looking for in a summer vacation. However, I haven't been a able to the website again. Perhaps I was just dreaming it ! I know we have some Steamboat locals on this Board, may be they can give me a steer ? If not, any other recommendations in the Steamboat area ?
I don't think I am thinking about the luxury guest ranches in the area (Home Ranch, Vista Verda), as they require a full week stay -- I am looking for 2-3 nights. My plan is to take a week, spend a couple nights in 2 or 3 different areas, just to experience Colorado in the summer (after 5-6 years of ski visits, its time to see the Colorado summer). I was thinking Breckenridge and Steamboat , because I have been there in the winter, but certainly interested in others ideas.
Timing is a bit flexible....was thinking late August /Early September ---probably later, as I suspect things quiet down after kids go back to school.
Any other ideas ?
