Very well placed, beautiful views, practical with everything you need, clean and comfortable. It's perfect for a vacation rental nothing else to say.
Marcus D. Mar 2022
Great location- easy to drive to and park and short walk to gondola and chairlifts, resort restaurants and shops. Nice condo with great amenities. Steps up to master bed in loft quite steep so need to be nimble to be safe. Lighting was also low in the condo but quiet and cozy.
Hilary G. Feb 2022
Had a lovely stay- the location was perfect. The unit is a bit slightly outdated, however very cozy. Only complaint is that it got extremely hot and we weren't able to get the heat to a comfortable level. Hot tub was great and all the amenities we perfect. Staircase leading up to the loft was very steep- would not recommend for older folks.

Proximity to gondola was great. We had a few minor issues and Vacasa was on top of them immediately. The epitome of customer service. The wifi access was a bit klugy...sometimes the old password worked and other times the new one would work...but we always were able to have at least one device connected. The description of the unit provided had some issues. The ski locker does not have the room # on it, but rather is '5'. The actual building in the directions is mislabelled. Part of fixing the wifi is to unplug the router, but the only router I could find was somehow fixed to the wall and the plug was not accessible. Generally, things were dim when you needed light...specifically it was hard to read the numbers on the combo locks for the door and the locker. That staircase to the loft is indeed a doozy. Overall though, we really liked the unit and would not hesitate to rent again.

Nice loft condo by resort. Very convenient for hitting the trails!
Kavya P. Jan 2022
We came to Steamboat for girls night out. Loved the location by the base area, cleanliness, hot tubs, board games, and stocked kitchen with spices and even a fondue pot. A perfect place for the 2 of us to recharge for a few days.
Brandon M. Jan 2022
Condo was is a fantastic location, easy access to gondola and the grand. Would stay there again
Amy G. Jul 2021
Really pretty view on the patio. The staircase is very steep and the huge fireplace mantle blocks your way up. Refrigerator doesn’t open all the way because the counter top blocks it. The pool and hot tub were closed which was the sole reason we booked and nothing about that was listed on the listing. It served its purpose for us to sleep, change clothes. It’s close to the Main Street Lincoln so that was nice.
Holly W. Jul 2021
No A/C in the summer was brutal. Two portable units were there but they acted as fans, and did not put out cold air. Used washcloth still hanging in the shower. Fireplace hearth stuck out and we continually tripped on it; many stubbed toes and a lil chunk of flesh missing. It was a cute unit, but needed updating. I thought it'd be fun to get a condo but would have rather paid 1/2 the price for a hotel in town with A/C.
Manager response:

Well kept, great customer service.
Dolores O. Oct 2020
We had a less than fair stay at this property and would never recommend it to anyone. The wifi never worked so we had to call the hotline and turned out to be an entirely different pass code than what was left for us. The staircase is an accident waiting to happen. We killed 6 wasps in the unit and found a dead one up in the loft. The TV in the loft was never set up to work and multiple tickets were put in to have it fixed and never was. The trim piece fell off in the kitchen when I went to open the doors beneath the sink. That was never fixed. Property should not rented out with the ill level of service provided or lack thereof.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Dolores. We apologize that your experience in our home was not the vacation for which you had planned and for which we strive to provide our guests. We confirm the WiFi issues have been resolved, the TV in the loft is in working order, and the trim in the kitchen has been repaired. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at the condo. It was conveniently located close to the Gondola Transit Center bus stop and had a great view from the deck. However, the interior is old and really needs to be updated. Better lighting and updates to the bathroom and kitchen would go a long way. Also, the pool and hot tubs were closed and unusable. We would have appreciated knowing this prior to our stay because part of the reason we picked this place was because we were under the impression these amenities would be available to us. Also, we would have appreciated walking directions to the bus stop. We located a shortcut at the back of the property after speaking with a worker on the premises, but we would have preferred having this information printed out and available to us in the unit.
Amy A. Aug 2020
Great little place with beautiful views! It was a bit hot in the summer, but you are so close to everything that you won't want to spend much time inside!
Erik & Tracey J. Jul 2020
Great location, clean and beautiful views. Perfect for the 4 of us.
Ken F. Mar 2020
Might be impossible to beat the affordability/proximity to gondola ratio. This unit’s bedroom is in a loft up a “ship’s ladder”. Pull out couch makes for easy sleeping for four. The ladder and openness of the loft make this condo much less expensive than others in this condo complex (I’ve stayed in another unit in this complex before). Built in the ‘70’s or early ‘80’s, the complex is a bit dated but again, refer to my first sentence. Two outdoor hot tubs and a heated pool with an easy 4 minute walk to gondola square (I timed it) make this place choice if you’re on a budget.
Trine F. Jan 2020
Loved the hot tub, location and views
Kristin K. Dec 2019
Easy to access and comfortable. Will stay again!
Nicholas Z. Jan 2019
Perfect location, perfect for family of 4.
JAMES V. Dec 2018
The condo was small but it was a great fit for my daughter and I. It's not ski in and ski out, but it is a short 400 meter walk to the Gondola. Great views of the mountain, Uber is in Steamboat so no need for a vehicle. WIFI was good enough to stream Netflix the entire time we were there.
JANE P. Jun 2018
Great views!
Markus W. Mar 2018
The perfect little studio within walking distance to the gondola square. Comfortably furnished and equipped to cook for the whole family. Great hot tub and pool area to relax after a day on the mountain. Convenient parking. This was our second stay and we'll be back.
Samantha J. Jan 2018
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and LOVED IT!!! Couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend our vacation! The view was incredible and the location was perfect! Highly highly recommended!!
Kenny H. Sep 2017
Great location with a view
Tim W. Aug 2017
This is a great condo in a great location. Close to Gondola Square and a short drive to downtown!!
Claire M. Apr 2017
This spot is great for getting to the mountain - a short walk away from the center village, restaurants, shops, liquor store, etc. The view is just ok as it faces Mt. Werner instead of the mountain and is on the noisy side when out on the patio. Some minor updates/repairs are in order and the bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable - we took the mattress from the fold out couch up to the loft as a makeshift mattress topper in order to make the bed softer. Also - beware that the ladder to the loft is extremely steep! Location is 5 stars, the actual accommodations were more like a three, especially for the price.
Isabella L. Mar 2017
Nice place in walking distance from from lifts and gandola. If you don't like to walk, the shuttle came every 5 minutes. Nice hot tub and pool to relax in after a day of skiing.
Markus W. Mar 2017
We had a great time, you can't really beat location, comfort, and price. Walking distance to the Steamboat gondola square, but still quiet at night. We were able to cook and enjoyed the view. Will be back.
Jordan L. Feb 2017
Nice play close to the resort. Definitly reccomend.
Mary B. Dec 2016
This condo was perfect for our family. With a convenient location to the slopes, it was only about a 5 min walk with kids and gear to the main base. The unit was cozy and comfortable, updated, and had all the amenities we were looking for. We will definitely come back for another stay!
Corinna H. Sep 2016
Very very happy with the location, size, views and cleanliness of this Emerald West Condo! Comfortable for two people - excellent views of the valley and access to mountain. Will return for sure!
John Or Anita W. Sep 2016
We enjoyed staying here. It was a little smaller than we expected, but very nice. The pool is not open year round as stated in description, but the manager made it right by giving us pool passes to use elsewhere. The beds were comfortable too-both the regular bed and the pullout sofa sleeper.
Kim G. Sep 2016
Loved our stay in Steamboat and this cozy condo was just perfect! Just be aware that the stairs to the loft/bedroom are very steep so take extra care going down. Highly recommend!
John M. Jul 2016
Doug S. Jul 2016
Great location to all the activities and locations around tow easy access and a great westward looking view over the valley.
Stacey L. Mar 2016
The property was great - awesome location!
Cheryl D. Mar 2016
This property was a great value, considering close proximity to the ski area. Renters need to know that there is a fairly short inclined walk to/from the gondola transit station and then more steps to the gondola. This is not a problem for younger skiers, but I was there after recent knee surgery, and the added walk and steps were challenging. The view from the property was amazing as we overlooked the sleeping giant, the historic barn, and the emerald ridge and this was an unexpected bonus. Of course the road was there too, but not busy. The steps to the loft were described accurately, so no surprise there.. Almost a ladder rather than steps. The hideabed in the living room was unexpectedly comfortable. We will definitely stay here again
Trenton W. Jan 2016
We really enjoyed our stay, the condo was exactly what we needed.
Stacy R. Dec 2015
We are regulars to Steamboat and usually stay in more affordable lodging. This was a Christmas splurge and we were satisfied. Pool and hot tubs with their views of the mountain were awesome and basically unused except by us. Walking to the gondola was super convenient. We liked being able to cook most meals in the condo. Only warning would be, 4 is definitely the max here. It is a pretty tight space even for 4 people. There's not a lot of storage for 4 skiers and all their stuff. The stairs to the loft are straight up - like a ladder, so not for anyone unsure on their feet.
