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!

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.
Glad to have you and Candy as neighbors, Dana, and look forward to sharing that bottle of wine! Also, thanks for the explanation that the 4-star rating was a fat-finger error - and for trying to fix it! Too bad vrbo doesn't provide a solution for rating boo boos. :(
See you around the neighborhood!
Vikkey and Dave
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.
Glad you enjoyed your stay, Mike, and thanks for returning to Fuller Daze! We appreciate your return business very much and hope to see you again in the future ~

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 proudly 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!
