The Porches at Steamboat Springs, one of the premier homes and lodging destinations in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, has upgraded their website to provide an easier information flow to their homeowners and their luxury vacation rental guests. “No surprises” is just part of their mountain home real estate sales and management services and their luxury vacation rental opportunities.

The new website for The Porches at Steamboat Springs has information for travelers looking for a short stay with luxury cachet and amenities prior to buying, and contact information for those looking for mountain home ownership in a world class resort.

When The Porches at Steamboat Springs opened eleven years ago, it was certainly a one-of-a-kind property concept for the popular ski resort and cowboy town. Although condominiums were still all the rage for ski travelers, The Porches owners Bruce Shugart and Shane Evans liked Steamboat Springs themselves so much they envisioned a neighborhood of spacious and gracious homes rather than the two to four bedroom condo towers going up in other resorts. “As avid skiers,” recalled Bruce Shugart, “Shane and I had been to all the Colorado ski resorts. From the slopes we could see the lodging properties, and of course we sampled each ski area’s après ski and night life as well. We found we kept coming back to Steamboat Springs and it became our favorite resort destination for the terrain and for the town. We knew we had to be a part of Steamboat Springs lodging and Steamboat Springs real estate.”

Shugart and Evans were already well established in the Aspen/Snowmass destination as accomplished builders of luxury homes, ranches and commercial buildings. Their business, Structural Associates Company, also provides maintenance and management services after construction and landscaping is completed. To manifest their vision for Steamboat Springs, Shugart and Evans created Mountain Meadow Preserve LLC, acquired 16 acres just 400 yards from the ski area base, and then began to build a different sort of lodging option that could be a mountain home rather than just a rented condo. Homes at The Porches are 3,000 to 5,000 square feet and are multilevel with three fireplaces, including one in the master bedroom. Each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom, and there is a game room with either pool table or fooseball table or both. Wireless internet access is complimentary, and each unit will have multiple flat screen TVs. Each home has its own large porch, which has become a most valuable amenity as travelers have discovered the perfect weather that is summer in the Rockies. All homes are easy walking to the free city bus system, but The Porches also provides complimentary private transportation to restaurants, shopping, getting around town and to the mountain if necessary. The Barn is the multiuse community facility where guests arrive and where the full time concierge is available both before and during a visit. There is a workout room and a steam room, outdoor heated pool, hot tub and fire pit, game room, and a towering stone fireplace in the lounge area. The expansive amenities and activities at The Barn are offered to those with whole ownership, fractional ownership, and to luxury rental guests.

The Porches at Steamboat Springs has continued to build, and in the second half of 2014 it became apparent that a more sophisticated website would better serve the current owners and those looking for a luxury experience in a Colorado vacation resort with its own Old West traditions and legendary yearly snow totals. Wandzilak Web Design was contracted to redesign and build a site that would showcase the integration of space and place in a unique mountain setting. “We are so pleased at the uptick in interest we’ve seen since our website expanded and began to offer more viewer interaction,” said The Porches General Manager Emilie Crider. “We will use our online photo gallery to show the unique interiors and exteriors of our homes, and as always we will provide a calendar of local Steamboat events. The best of this year’s ski days are yet to come, but we are already looking forward to our summer rodeos and concerts.”
