For the ultimate local feel, stay at the Mariposa Lodge Bed and Breakfast. Owned by long-time Steamboat residents Cindy and Bob Maddox who live next door, the place is downright quaint. Cindy dabbles in fiber arts and decorated the cabin-style bed and breakfast with handmade quilts and wall hangings. The place is right next to a river and is incredibly quiet even though it is close to downtown. Spend a night in watching snow fall from the front porch or enclosed sunroom. The rooms are more than comfortable, some have jetted tubs and fireplaces, and in the morning, make sure not to miss the breakfasts the Bob and Cindy whip up in the beautiful kitchen/common room area. Over your personalized egg strata, yogurt, fruit, sausage, and homemade cinnamon coffee cake, ask the hosts anything. The two have lived in Steamboat long enough to answer any question you may have about events, restaurants, and activities. One room is perfect for a couple, but larger groups can rent out the whole place and customize their stay based on their needs. Mariposa Lodge Bed and Breakfast is more than accommodating in every way possible.
