Guests are invited to experience a taste of what life was like in the wild west in this wagon, outfitted with a comfy full-size bed, electricity, lights and heat. Access to a separate bathroom and barbecue is also included. The cabin is located between Steamboat Springs and Milner. Offered at $99+ nightly.

2. Historic 1898 cottage on the creek

History lovers will appreciate this Old Town Steamboat Springs cottage, originally built in 1898. The cozy, two-bedroom home situated along Butcherknife Creek is on the Routt County Register of Historic Places and features original barnwood walls and hardwood floors. Offered at $180+ nightly.

3. (Tiny) cabin by Stagecoach Reservoir

If super spacious accommodations is what you want, this may not be the Airbnb for you. But if privacy and proximity to outdoor adventure is what you had in mind, this small cabin near Stagecoach may be just what you’re looking for. A separate bathroom is available in the main house, and a fire pit is open to use, provided there isn’t a burning ban. Offered at $65+ nightly.

4. Modern penthouse in downtown Steamboat

Who knew such a luxurious, modern penthouse was right under our noses in downtown Steamboat Springs?

The spacious condo features a crisp, modern design with lots of bright white decor, and included in the price is access to a Gondola Ski Club locker, reserved parking in the garage and the option to have your groceries stocked for arrival. This Howelsen Place penthouse would be a bit of a splurge for the typically cost-savvy Airbnb user, but the views during a Steamboat fireworks show just might be worth it. Offered at $425+ nightly.

5. 1920s Phippsburg charmer

A quick 40-45 minutes from Steamboat Springs, this refurbished log house features a “Garden of Eden” environment for a serene stay. One visitor called the one bedroom home “a really special gem.” But read the fine print before you’re set on having a cozy fire: The woodstove is only for looks these days. Offered at $125+ nightly.
