Hotel Bristol: Wanting to stay downtown in the summer, I found this small boutique hotel, since 1948, at 917 Lincoln Ave. I had a small room, but it was comfortable and perfect for one night. If you want to stay downtown and be able to walk to restaurants, bars and shopping, this is a good spot. Nothing fancy, but it has a good, helpful staff and ample parking.
Home Ranch: Just over 25 miles from Steamboat is the famed Home Ranch in Clark CO. This all-inclusive dude ranch offers horseback riding, fly fishing and other outdoor activities plus farm-table cuisine. This is on my bucket list!!!!
