July 4th with Glen Eden Resorts and Steamboat Springs

My husband and I got the chance to take our 4 youngest children to stay at the Glen Eden Resort outside of Steamboat Springs in July for a wonderful 4 day retreat. We had no idea what to expect and by the photos of this hidden gem, we weren't expecting what we found.

The cabins are available for rent year round. (See here) Many of them are privately owned and stocked/personalized by the owners. The resort offers a cleaning/towel trading crew that comes in daily while you are out enjoying the sites.

These cabins are beautiful. The amenities are perfect for an extended weekend or a small wedding.

* Mudroom at the entrance to remove shoes, coats, skis or pool noodles (we had a lot of these)
*Perfect sized kitchen. Full fridge, oven and stove, microwave, coffee maker and a large window for afternoon breezes.
*Two bedrooms. 
        1) Master bedroom with window seat and ensuite bathroom (stand alone shower, no tub)
        2) Two twin beds with window seat - bathroom in the hallway next to the bedroom
* Pull out sofa that sleeps a 6 and 7 year old little girl PERFECT!
* Television/cable
* Dining room table that seats 6 with large windows that offer a wonderful morning breeze.
* Sliding back door that leads to a lovely porch, picnic table and charcoal grill.

We were blessed enough to be directly in front of the steps that lead down to the roaring Elk River and wedding area. My kids spend two evenings throwing rocks in the river, getting their feet wet and being dirty little summer kids.

On site are two hot tubs and a pool. We spent every afternoon here cooling off and playing around. Most of the time we were the only ones in the pool and had loved the centralized location. There is also a restaurant on site in case you don't want to cook or need a date night with your spouse while visiting.

It's what summer is made of right?

The memories of this July 4th vacation won't be something I forget for my lifetime, I can't thank Glen Eden Resorts enough for the opportunity to travel with my blended family and visit such a relaxing place.
