“The Scandinavian was perfect for our family”
Reviewed February 23, 2006

The Scandinavian in Steamboat was the perfect solution for our family. We were looking for something cost effective, but with 2 bedrooms, kitchenette, pool and hot tub, which can be pricey in Steamboat.
You must check in and get keys at the management company two miles away. The check-in person "Goose" (as in Top Gun) was delightful, the winding road up to the condo a bit treacherous on icy evenings, but the rooms were clean and cleaned daily, the across-valley views from both the living room and master bedroom breathtaking, even from a lower floor. The pool and hot-tub are very well maintained. The kitchenette had every appliance that we needed, and then some.
The ski-out is a bit winding, even exhilarating, but we skiied it nonetheless, and it is a most wonderful early morning run down to the Gondola. Walk-in along a little-used roadway comes right off the Thunderhead Express.
For the price the Scandinavian is a terrific value and we certainly hope to return.

We found Steamboat to be great - great snow and mountain, we were there the week of Christmas and it was not crowded at all (although we were told it was one of the busiest weeks of the year). We did ski the top half of the mountain, so the bunny slopes might have been more crowded. I do know the base was crowded at the end of the day.

The town was very nice with great places to eat. If you like simple, Johnny Rockets was a great diner.

Now on to the Scandinavian. The location is out of the way, which was very quiet. If you like that (we do), then great. The problem with that is getting anywhere. The management has arranged a very convenient shuttle that was also flexible if you needed something off the schedule. The condo on the other hand was beat up. Our condo was very small (the pull out couch took up nearly the entire living room and the bedroom (the other room) was just big enough for the queen bed. The bathroom was tiny. It did have a deck that overlooked the pool and the mountain that was nice. The kitchenette was quite adequate with a full refridge. The furniture was worn but clean. The dinnerware was a mix and match of many different sets.

The pool/hot tub was superb, we loved it everyday. Very warm.

The Ski-out was a joke. Advertised as a ski-out, but this was through peoples yards and at times very steep, and was icy (nothing else was). We walked the trail. The walk-in was also not advertised correctly. It was supposed to be .1 mile away, but unless I walked very slowly in boots, it is more than that. It took us 10 minutes or more to walk it. Not that far, but not what was advertised.

Lastly, the walls were very thin. Several people brought dogs that barked and we heard it all. Also heard TV and conversations. Fortunately no heavy party folks, so it was quiet at a reasonable time.

On the whole, if you are looking for an out of the way, mostly quiet place that is small, average, and cheap, you have found it. If you are looking for higher quality, head down the mountain.
