About David Gates & Kevin Miller
Billy looks kind of tired after skiing with Kevin & Dave! You can find Billy Kidd on the mountain most ski days at 1:00 pm at the top of the Gondola; this Olympic silver medalist is the ideal ski ambassador for Steamboat and always has a story to tell. Kevin Miller and David Gates are equal partners in our home in Steamboat Springs; Kevin lives in Michigan, Dave in Florida. We custom built our home in 1992 with rentals in mind, and named it "Fuller Daze Lodge"' in honor of our college friend and best skier we've ever known, Tom Fuller, who passed away in 1984. Through Tom, we discovered Steamboat in the 1970's, and as college roommates came to ski Steamboat several times before concluding that this is where we really want to be while vacationing in the Rocky Mountains. We have had many happy, repeat guests in our long rental history!

Why David Gates & Kevin Miller chose Steamboat Springs
The views and privacy are truly what separate our home from the pack when considering a vacation rental home in Steamboat. We are on a private cul-de-sac of only 16-homes. The front of our home faces the ski mountain with views of the Gondola and National Forest, while the back of the home offers a large deck overlooking the Yampa Valley, Dakota Ridge, The Flattops Mountain Range and downtown Steamboat Springs. Watch 4th of July fireworks from the deck as the music is simulcast on local radio, or stargaze while enjoying the private 7-person hot tub with these amazing views. Turn right out of the driveway to walk your dog around the dog-friendly cul-de-sac or left to explore a larger swath of the community. We have included all of the comforts of home, are dog-friendly and we enjoy sharing our favorite resort with family, friends, and with new friends. In fact, three former rental guests have since purchased property in the neighborhood!
What makes this House unique
Quiet, peaceful views overlooking the Flat Tops Mountain Range, Dakota Ridge, Yampa Valley and downtown Steamboat Springs. Great location to everything, no condo crazies to worry about, your own relaxing hot tub, your furry friend is welcome, and a wonderfully furnished home to make the whole family happy.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Exactly what we needed!
This was our first time to Steamboat Springs and this home was exactly what our family needed. Very close to everything and yet a quiet place to be away from the resort. Our boys loved sledding on the hill out back and trying some new games we found in the closet. The hot tub was wonderful after a day of skiing. We will definitely be booking again if we are ever back in the area!
We are delighted your family enjoyed our home! Thank you, Michelle, for selecting Fuller Daze Lodge! We look forward to hosting you again in the future and hope you will recommend us to friends and family ~ take care!

Great place for our two families! Loved the hot tub and sledding hill behind the house! Host was wonderful and checked in to make sure that we were ok!
Thank you, Kelly, for selecting our home - we are so glad your group enjoyed Fuller Daze Lodge! We hope if your travel plans take you to Steamboat in the future, you will choose to stay with us again. Best always, Vikkey and David
Great place with a killer view. Our fourth year here. We loved it so much we bought a house down the street.
Enjoyed our stay. Felt at home as soon as we arrived. Looking out from the family room, there is an unobstructed view of valley below and mountain range. Street ends in cul de sac. Made it easy to walk the dogs. Met some neighbors and got the impression that most homes were owner occupied and well maintained. Good layout, there is good separation of the master suite from the other 2 bedrooms. Appliances up to date. Easy to get to the Meadows lot (less than 2 miles away). I wasn't able to park our Silverado in the garage. Minor inconvenience.
Cozy, Clean, and Convenient place to stay
I was part of group that stayed at this house for a ski trip. Upon arrival the house was in perfect condition. It is located pretty close to the base area and a short drive to town. After a long day of skiing soaking in the hot tub that overlooks the spectacular valley was a mini vacation within the main vacation. There are more great restaurants in town that can be visited in several trips. If you want to eat in instead the kitchen is fully equipped and there are two grocery stores nearby.
Thanks Ben for your 5 star review. We appreciate how clean you left our home and that you liked our new Hot tub. We really like it too. Looking forward to having you and your group back to see us.
Excellent house - has everything we could've asked for
Every winter for the last several years, we have spent 7-10 days in Steamboat for the great skiing and indoor tennis facility. This was our first time staying at the Fuller-Daze Lodge, and it was perfect. There were two of us, our two dogs, and we had a couple of friends come in town at different times to spend a few days with us as well. The location is ideal - short, easy drive (or via public transportation) to the main Steamboat ski area, and equally easy to get into town, the tennis facility, etc. The neighborhood and house are nice & quiet, very private - for us, much more relaxing than staying at resort lodge or cramped condo on the slopes. The kitchen was incredibly well-stocked, the main living/social area spacious with nice entertainment options (TV, music), large quiet/private bedrooms, and a sweet hot tub looking out towards the opposite mountain & valley. We haven't set dates for our 2018 trip yet, but if we're able to return to Steamboat, this is where we'll want to be again!
Steamboat Springs is known for its amazing champagne powder in the winter months, but has also become a wildly popular summer destination as well. We have rented our home since 1992 and have many return guests. The skiing doesn't get any better than Steamboat and the accommodations don't get any better than Fuller Daze Lodge.
In the winter months, guests can ski, snowboard, snowshoe, cross country ski, snow mobile, go tubing, ice fishing, sledding, ice skating, mountaineering and play indoor tennis, as well as shop, eat, drink and sightsee. Steamboat is a true winter wonderland for kids of all ages! Put the children in daycare or ski school to learn, while you hit the slopes. Steamboat understands that if the children are happy, so are the parents. :-)
Summer months bring beautiful spring-like temperatures during the day, ideal for any and all outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, hang gliding, golf, fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, swimming, hunting, water tubing, indoor and outdoor tennis, water skiing, rock climbing, hot air ballooning, shopping, eating and drinking. We are pet friendly, so your furry family members can come along on vacay, and enjoy the sights and sounds of Steamboat as well!
