Life in Steamboat is amazing! The amazing wildlife, the many fun outdoor activities that happen year-round, the peaceful setting and slower pace of life… No matter the season, you cannot help but be swept up in the beauty of the scenery. Yet, many who choose to relocate there after living in larger cities and at lower elevations can find it to be, well… challenging.
If you are not familiar with Steamboat, it is a rural mountain town about 3.5 hours from Denver Metro. It is known as a ski, resort town which is very attractive to some, but some staff have found this to be rather challenging to adjust to the rural living environment. We have a City Market, Safeway and a very small Walmart (2nd smallest in the nation), which sums up the shopping options. Most items are purchased through the mail (Fedex and Amazon Prime become your new best friends). The nearest city with many amenities is 3.5 hours away. Housing can be challenging. It is difficult to find a place to rent (very limited inventory) and buying a home is just as challenging.
We share all this to be certain you are aware of the challenges.
The good news is you wake up everyday in the most beautiful surroundings, with a community that values clean/healthy balanced lifestyle. In addition, we are working with a progressive Substance Abuse Program in the area who is in an exciting development phase of growth!
