About Von McCormick
I enjoy Iowa Football and all things cars. I used to ski and boat a lot before health issues. My wife and I have 3 children; my youngest daughter enjoys skiing. We also have a dog. Steamboat is my second home; I've been coming out here for 44 years.
Von McCormick purchased this Condo in 1974
Why Von McCormick chose Steamboat Springs
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Just steps to the gondola with a heated underground parking garage and elevator access to the upper level. Within walking distance of mountain activites, shops, and restaurants.
What makes this Condo unique
You have all the summer activities (mountain biking, tubing, kayaking, hiking, alpine slide, mountain coaster, etc.) and winter sports (skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, mountain coaster, etc.) you can think of here. There is a lovely downtown area with many restaurants and shops. There are three grocery stores in town and a small grocery store nearby on the mountain. Strawberry Park and the Old Town Hot Springs pool are open year-round. Strawberry Park is a natural hot springs pool area.
Pool / Spa
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
The location and price can't be beat for skiers, and there was plenty of room for our party of six. Both the town bus central stop and the gondola are no more than a 100 foot walk, and the underground parking spacious and convenient (a huge SUV not an issue, which has been a problem in the past). Also, everybody gets their own leather recliner (4, plus two in the couch), a great plus after a long day skiing.
I'm glad you had a good time and you got alot of snow by the reports we saw. If you make it out to Steamboat again we would love to have you as a guest again. Have a Hreat 2020.
Great family trip
This property was perfect for our family ski trip (3 kids, 2 adults). You literally walk out the door and down a few flights of steps and you’re at the gondola. And I don’t think I’ve ever stayed anywhere with more comfortable furniture to relax on after a day of skiing. Here are a few more comments for the benefit of those looking at renting this place:
- If you are expecting the Ritz Carlton, then this unit is not for you. The pictures of the inside are accurate, it is comfortable and clean. But, it is older and well worn inside.
- While the location is great, you cannot see the slopes from the windows or the deck. The view faces the opposite direction.
- the parking garage is nice - sometimes they can be a bit tight but there was plenty of room for the Suburban that we rented.
- You use key fobs and not actual keys to access the unit and they are mailed to you before your arrival. I’ve never encountered this before, but it was actually kind of nice already having the keys in my pocket when we got into town.
- The owner Von is great and incredibly responsive. I had a few questions before arrival and he responded to my emails on the same day. Also, we got locked out accidentally and I had to call him to get the code for the lock box with the extra key fob. He answered his phone immediately, we got the extra key fob and back in with no problems. Thanks again Von!
- the kitchen is well stocked with the usual dishes, pots, utensils and anything else you might need.
In short, I would not hesitate to rent this unit again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place with a great location.
Thank You Kirk! I'm glad you had a great time skiing. We are doing updates every year. This spring we are replacing the sliding doors in the master & living room. It's very expensive to do any renovations. Were glad you had a good time and your always welcome in our unit. Have a great 2020.
Great Location for a great price
We really enjoyed our stay at this Steamboat condo for our annual guys ski trip. Great location, right in the middle of the Gondola Square. Von was great with the communication and very responsive. I highly recommend staying here.
Thank You and your friends for choosing our condo for your guys ski trip. I'm sorry weather caused you to leave a day early. I sent you an e mail through VRBO offering you a discounted rate if you choose our condo in the future. Glad to hear you made it home safely. Hope to see you back.
Could not ask for a better location. Having kids, this location allows them to return to the room for rest without any need for a shuttle. You just walk downstairs for food, drinks, general store, etc... Owner, Von is very responsive and great to work with. All furniture- beds, recliners, couch- are all very comfortable. We’ve used VRBO multiple times, and this condo is the most stocked with anything you could imagine, even some staple food items. Check in is the best with the keys mailed to you prior to your trip!
There were quite a few cleanliness issues we noticed, but Von handled them immediately. Sadly, we found out the patio furniture is not there during the winter months but need to take that up with Mountain Resorts. Regardless, I recommend this condo!
Brandon, Thank You for choosing our condo for your ski vacation. I talked to the crew about the patio furniture and things you pointed out, so we won't have anything like that happen in the future.
Great location, spacious, and affordable
The location and amount of space provided can’t be beat. The owner was very accommodating when we asked to change our departure date. All questions were answered promptly and we received ample communication ahead of our arrival.
Thank You Andy, I try to do everythng possible to make my customs have the best vacation we can provide. Hopefully mother nature helps the a lot of Snow & Sunshine. Andy , you and your family are always welcome at our condo.
Thank You Again !!!!
I hope you and your friend had a great time in Steamboat and enjoyed our condo. If you decide to make it back to Steamboat we hope you choose to stay with us again.
Thank You !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Go to Fish Creek Falls, Little Toot's Park, Hahn's Peak, Old Town Hot Springs, hiking, golfing, the farmer's market, Strawberry Park Hot Springs, or take the gondola to the restaurant and picnic areas. Many great restaurants, brew pubs, and sports bars. There are too many things to list!
