Nordic Lodge of Steamboat Springs
Travel Blogs from Steamboat Springs
Wildfires! Less than a mile from my camp, there appeared to be a wildfire, burning madly out of control and in need of dousing. After a chat with a local sheriff deputy, I discovered that it was a 'controlled burn', to eliminate underbrush. However, I thought this was a great test of my "rain mojo" ( as Rich Miller describes it) - if I set up my …
After a restful night, we took our time in the AM. Went to a highly recommended breakfast place, Creekside Cafe. Sat outside on a tributary (Soda Creek) of the Yampa. S- Rancheros with eggs, and chorizo sausage J- Corned beef eggs benedict. This place more than lived up to it's reputation.
Margie and Larry had told us about the new library in town so off we went after breakfast to find it. This facility was built right on the Yampa River with beautiful views ...
... locals drinking and partying. We found a table outside on the river where you order from the bar and they deliver. S-Italian pressed sandwich J- Muffuletta and a beer. It was very pleasant to sit outside on the banks of a raging river and have dinner. I also talked with some of the patrons. I would go back to Sunpies. We stopped at a store for milk and oreo's. Came back to the hotel and really slept well after our ...
Our stay here was wonderful. We were here for two solid nights, and we had time to really take in the town's feel. As you can see by the pictures, we went to see the rodeo on Saturday evening. Yes, it's a little bit hick, but the rodeo is a lot of fun! Joi realized that bluegrass is pretty good (especially when it's live). And to see the bulls and the wild broncos being ridden by brave (or maybe crazy) cowboys is ...
... he's so romantic!]
Breakfast again at the Paramount - French toast was good but the Chicken and Dumplings (again) were better. Skied a few runs, then took a break at the condo. Skied a few more, then went up to the Rendevous to harass Chance while he worked; he is a grill cook.

TravelPod Member ReviewsNordic Lodge of Steamboat Springs
Flaming Gorge, Utah - It rained all night, and all morning, so I packed up in the rain and headed for home, my wife a hot shower and my own bed, but alas it was not to be.....
Heading east on Hw 40, the rain intensity increased, by Craig, CO, is was steady, by Hayden, CO, it was so heavy that it pooled on the road and oncoming traffic drenched me in their rooster tail spray.
The temp dropped to mid 50's, lightning crackled overhead, and I began to feel unsafe. Especially climbing to 9,400 ft to cross Rabbit Ears Pass.
So, I called my wife, she authorized a hotel night and I consulted Trip Advisor to find the Nordic Lodge. The rooms are clean, have microwave and fridge and the hotel has a hot tub, pool, is conveniently located, reasonably priced and owned by a delightful, helpful couple originally from Poland. If you find yourself I Steamboat Springs in a rainstorm (or any time), I recommend you consider the Nordic Inn.
