Join us in one of Steamboat Spring's Most Luxurious private homes with detached guest house, with a lot of privacy, unlike all the homes around it. Prominent and visible from most parts of town, the highest home on the hill under the Silver Bullet Gondola, known by locals and vacationers alike. Overlooking the entire Yampa Valley, as well as South Routt County, the Flattops Wilderness area. To fully appreciate this Amazing custom built Montana Log Home, coined See Me Lodge on behalf of the owner's three children's initials. I will need to start at the beginning... From childhood during a lesson on pioneer days, building log homes out of sticks sparked an interest in Mike Donnelly, whose fascination of log homes grew over the years. With many ski trips to different states, he and his wife Mary fell in love with Colorado. For them it was then a matter of finding a tight knit, family driven, friendly community. Many trips, and long conversations later the couple chose Steamboat Springs to settle into and build the log home of their dreams, and then some. In order to fulfill this childhood dream unique log home Mike had in his mind, he needed to find the perfect builder. That's where Gabe Butler of Montana Log Homes of Colorado comes into the picture. The two joined forces to design, and build the perfect log home Mike had dreamed of most of his life. Breaking ground in 2006 with logs brought in from Glacier National Monument. Larger logs were flown by helicopter where they were all assembled before, being trucked to town. Each log has been skip finished with a draw knife, meaning not all of the darker color inner bark has been removed. They were then individually scribed, this tool transfers shapes from one log to another. Superior to conventional chinked construction, scribing allows the logs to fit together perfectly to create a solid log home. All of the vertical timbers in the home have adjusters that accept subtle shifts in the logs with time. These techniques give the atmosphere of a true western lodge, combined with wide plank floors, dramatic vaulted ceilings, lavish furniture, expansive windows, perfectly appointed bedrooms, luxurious decor, richly landscaped woodland of aspen, blue spruce, white pine, and juniper trees on a rugged hillside, impressive stone columns, boulder retaining walls, and spectacular spanning decks.
Let's go inside this exquisite six bedroom mountainside retreat, to see what is in store for your stay. Offering three levels of perfectly placed rooms and gathering spaces for guests of all ages. Starting on the main level, the focal point and heart of the home, the Main Great Room. Featuring the largest log in the entire home spanning all three levels, showcasing the craftsmanship and pride put into every detail of the build. Look out from the expansive windows to the unforgettable landscape, whether its winter, spring, summer or fall. The every changing beauty will take your breath away every time. Stay warm on cold winter days with the rock surrounded wood burning fireplace. Hot summer days the logs absorb the cool air from the night and keep the interior cool throughout the day. Claim your place on the large curved leather couch for movie nights, or cozy into a nook for a quieter spot.

The Vibe: Lavishly Appointed, Magnificent Log Home, Luxurious Interior, Rustic Mountain Feel, Breathtaking Views.
What We Love: Sitting on the highest home site in Steamboat Springs the endless pristine views will make you never want to leave, or stop sneaking peeks while you are at the home. With plenty of outdoor living spaces allowing you to enjoy the atmosphere surrounding you. Cook the most scrumptious of meals in the professionally equipped fully loaded gourmet kitchen, preparing a feast? Use the second fully equipped kitchen in the guest house as well. The Sunset Room will become everyone's favorite spot. Featuring 360 degrees of spanning windows, cozy comfortable seating, and a sound system. There couldn't be a more perfect place to watch the Alpenglow in the evenings, or the sunrises in the mornings! Since there are two great rooms, everyone in the home can spread out on the multiple levels. Downstairs the second great room has a home theater and a gas fireplace. The main level great room has a lovely wood burning fireplace, expansive windows, views galore, romantic vaulted ceilings, a large flat screen TV, and the largest log in the home spanning all three levels of it. A conversation piece of its own, brought out by helicopter from Glacier National Monument. With the private bar and billiards room with custom pool table overlooking the main level great room. This immaculate home is truly an entertainer's mecca. Situated perfectly in a serene setting giving the feel of being away from it all, yet downtown Steamboat Springs is a short four miles drive.
Good To Know: The home is ski in, on an access trail from Mount Werner. Not ideal for beginner skiers or snow boarders. Take the property shuttle to the slopes, it's a short drive to the base area. In summer you are a little bit longer of a drive to downtown and other activities as the home is 4.1 miles to the town of Steamboat Springs. The base area of the mountain is still a short couple minutes' drive, parking in the Knoll lots are free of charge. There are plenty of stairs in this three level home, the first level from the garage is all one floor then it's all up from there. Sometimes building a fire takes a little time to heat up. If you want to get warm quickly head to the second great room on the first floor where there is a gas fireplace.
Insider Tips: For the BEST views during all times of the day head to the Sunset Room. It is one of the owner's favorite spots in the home. With windows all around, 360* of them to be precise. To die for views, looking down into the Yampa Valley, off to the far left is the Flat Tops Wilderness area, to the right the beautiful town we call home, Steamboat Springs. With a billiards room featuring a custom pool table with a private pub, you may never want to venture out. If you do however, there are a few base area watering holes. Into downtown there are almost 50 different restaurants and bars. Our shuttle drivers know Steamboat Springs very well, and are full of helpful information. During summer months call us in the Retreatia office 7 days a week to answer any questions, or for restaurant recommendations and activities happening while you are in town.
