Steamboat Springs is a wonderful Feast of Tabernacles location offering something for everyone! One great asset for unifying fellowship is the fact that nearly all attendees stay at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel, which includes the convenience of the meeting hall for services. The hotel has a variety of room types including motel rooms, studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums and even penthouses. Parking is free both underground and across the street.
Due to limited three-bedroom condos and penthouses at the Steamboat Grand, they can be reserved by contacting the Festival coordinator. For those needing four-bedroom condos, we are listing other facilities nearby. Lower cost housing is about a mile and a half away.
In addition to the scenery, few are likely to experience side effects from this elevation, as the Feast site is at a comparatively low 6,700 feet.
Dining opportunities are varied and include a few higher-end restaurants. There is little in the way of well-known chain restaurants. Most shops are downtown, with a few on the hill above the hotel.
Available activities include golfing, mountain biking, hiking, fishing (including guided fly-fishing), hot-air ballooning, kayaking, rock climbing, bowling, ice-skating, miniature golf, ATV riding and horseback riding. The alpine slide and boat rentals are closed after Labor Day.
Some of the other attractions are Old Town Hot Springs, Fish Creek Falls (a short hike), museums, art galleries, three state parks (Stagecoach, Steamboat and Pearl, all with lakes) and 150 mineral springs in the vicinity of the town.
The Steamboat Grand Hotel (plus the city) offers a free shuttle to and from most places in town. Yampa Valley Airport (25 minutes away) is serviced by commercial jets. Rental cars are available.
