Steamboat Lake Outpost

Ride. Restore. Reconnect.

Cabin Rentals, Motel Rooms, Horseback Rides, Snowmobile Rentals & Restaurant North of Steamboat Springs, Colorado

We're building something special here at The Outpost.

Nestled in the mountains North of Steamboat Springs, in beautiful country that is Northern Colorado’s best kept secret, we’ve got everything you need on property and in our backyard for the perfect Colorado vacation. 

We take pride in offering authentic rocky mountain adventures coupled with small-town hospitality. For us it’s not just about finding your edge or the thrill of an adventure—it’s also about connecting with friends & family, unplugging, and sending you home with a sense of renewal.

So join us in our community living room, or out on the trail, and we’ll show you why we are your home away from home.
