Steamboat Springs, CO luxury lodging specialist provides professional in-home vacation experience.

You know the industry has hit it big when they are advertising and promoting home vacation rentals on a Superbowl commercial!

Moving Mountains (, the luxury lodging specialist in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, is reporting a strong early bookings pace for the upcoming winter ski season, on the heels of its busiest summer yet. The company attributes its continuing growth to its skill in providing vacationers to Colorado’s mountains a luxury home stay with certainty, reliability and professionalism.

International travel experts Arthur and Pauline Frommer reported that the trend toward renting vacation homes is the single strongest trend in recent years. Similarly, according to renowned travel writer and expert Wendy Perrin, one of the most important travel predictions for 2014 was that travelers would increasingly choose homes over hotels. This is no surprise to Moving Mountains, a business that has been providing its clients luxury home vacation experiences in Steamboat Springs for more than 15 years.

“We’ve experienced growth every year that we’ve been in business,” said Moving Mountains president and co-founder Robin Craigen. “But our growth has really exploded in the past few years. Industry data shows that there is continued demand for the type of experience we provide as people move away from traditional condominium and hotel arrangements and move toward staying in a home.”

What sets Moving Mountains apart from many online companies, such as HomeAway and Airbnb, is that it provides a level of complete certainty with the home rental. Clients make arrangements with a professional staff at a legitimate business, rather than with an individual. Especially when planning a luxury vacation, uncertainty translates as risk. Moving Mountains provides luxurious in-home vacations with the professionalism and security that is often associated with a hotel or large condominium management company.

“The good thing about these online businesses is that they have opened peoples’ eyes about why you would want to stay in a home over a hotel or condominium – more and more people are thinking that way,” said Craigen. “You know the industry has hit it big when they are advertising and promoting home vacation rentals on a Superbowl commercial!”

In addition to opulent accommodations, Moving Mountains offers its guests a full range of benefits, such as chef services and private transportation to the slopes, restaurants and other activities. Moving Mountains brought to Colorado the European-style Catered Chalet experience ( 15 years ago, and that unique offering sets it apart from nearly all other lodging opportunities in North America.

The catered chalet experience provides a complete package with lodging, meals and transportation. Guests enjoy more vacation time and a superior vacation experience by removing day-to-day chores such as shopping, cooking, cleaning up after meals and driving their group around. Moving Mountains is one of only a few companies in Colorado and just a handful in North America that offers this experience, combining in-home lodging and full-service catered meals.

“’Significantly Not As Described’ has never been used to characterize a Moving Mountains property!” said Craigen. “You pick a pro if you want certainty, reliability, ease of making arrangements – it’s more than a ‘keys are in the mailbox’ rental.”
