Steamboat Springs Neighborhoods
Downtown View map
Known as Old Town, Steamboat’s original downtown neighborhood consists of tree-lined streets and quaint cottages. New to the scene is contemporary living along Lincoln Avenue and Yampa Street. Multi-family condominiums with contemporary mountain styling offer residents an urban alternative. Locals love downtown living for ease of shopping, dining, and nightlife entertainment choices.
Fish Creek Area View map
Located between the ski mountain and downtown, this area primarily consists of single-family homes. The Steamboat locals like this area for its relatively lower cost per square foot, its proximity to both the ski mountain and downtown, and its quick access to hiking trails.
Mountain Area View map
Mountain area living includes a 1.5 mile radius around the base of the ski area. This is a high-density area comprised of condos, townhomes, and single-family residences. The mountain area is a favorite among ski vacationers and second homeowners.
Strawberry Park View map
Strawberry Park is situated directly north of downtown. This is one of the most highly coveted living areas in and around Steamboat. At the turn of the 19th century this farmland was filled with strawberry and cabbage fields. Since that time, Strawberry Park homesites have been divided into large parcels of 35 acres and more. The sunshine, the space, the views, and the proximity to Buffalo Pass draw residents to this area.
West of Steamboat View map
This area starts just west of Steamboat and follows the Highway 40 corridor to the town of Hayden. The area is comprised of single-family neighborhoods popular to local residents who seek single-family accommodations at a more affordable price point than what is available in town and on the mountain. The town of Hayden is located 20 miles west of Steamboat and is home to the Yampa Valley Regoinal Airport.
Elk River Area View map
The Elk River area is located northwest of downtown and follows the Elk River to Clark, about 17 miles from Steamboat. This area is largely comprised of 35-acre parcels but includes a mix of single-family homes on small plots, ranchettes, and cattle ranches made up of several hundred acres.
North Routt View map
Situated north of the charming town of Clark, North Routt is one of the prettiest parts of the Steamboat area and draws buyers who want to be close to Steamboat Lake, Pearl Lake, Hahn’s Peak Lake, and Sand Mountain. This location is an outdoorsman’s paradise for fishing, hunting, running snow machines, trail riding and more. Ranging from Clark to Columbine, 17 miles distant, North Routt is at a higher elevation than Steamboat and generally receives more snow, resulting in a slightly longer winter season.
South Valley View map
Bountiful and picturesque, the South Valley is a Mecca of high-end developments with low-density living. In fact, a portion of these developments are Land Preservation Sub-Divisions, which offer large acreage but concentrate the housing to a specific zone in order to leave superior open space for wildlife preserve and aesthetic appeal. The area has 2 golf courses—Catamount (private), and Haymaker (public). Many of the ranches in this Valley are under conservation easement and are protected from any future development. Overall, the South Valley offers large lots, expansive common areas, panoramic views of the ski mountain and the meanders of the Yampa River.
Stagecoach Area View map
This area extends about 15 miles south of Steamboat near Stagecoach Reservoir. It includes areas such as Grouse Creek, Blacktail Mountain, Henderson, Stagecoach and the town of Oak Creek. Stagecoach and Oak Creek have become popular among the locals for the substantially lower cost of homes and the availability of vacant land. This land was originally platted to accommodate higher density housing near a proposed Stagecoach Ski Area. This community is located on the south side of the Stagecoach Reservoir near the town of Oak Creek.
