Colorado is a magnificent state, and with the 7th Annual Steamboat Wine Festival set for this week, the Ski House of the Day has to be one in Steamboat! The multi-day wine festival kicks off with "Wine on the Mountain" a very cool wine tasting event at the top of the gondola, continues with events like the "Mud, Sweat & Cheers" a bike-ride / wine-tasting combo, and leads to the signature event, the "Toast of Steamboat - Grand Tasting." It's been a while since I've skied at Steamboat, and I am looking forward to getting back there...I just have to decide whether I'll go for the skiing, or for this wine festival! Either way, here's a new ski house in Steamboat worth a look (Steamboat Ski & Resort Realty has the whole scoop).
This impressive ski house is (oh-so-appropriately) located on Ski Trail Lane and has ski-in ski-out access as well as panoramic views of the valley. The house is called Ski Trail Lane Duplex but with 5,734 sq ft of space (in just one of its sides) is absolutely huge and strikes me as "deluxe" rather than "duplex"!
Check out this gorgeous living room with soaring stone fireplace:
...here's a peak at the view, and at the other side of the living room is an impressive, huge custom-built log staircase (but not to worry, there's also a glass-enclosed 3-story elevator in the house!):
The kitchen combines beautiful sleek features like the granite slab counters with the rustic features like the log beamed ceiling:
And this...no it's not the kitchen, it's extra food prep space in the butlers pantry:
Here's one of the five bedrooms...with its own fireplace, vaulted ceiling, and wall of windows -- what a beautiful room to wake up in before a sunny Steamboat ski day!
