Steamboat Springs has many great things to offer it’s patrons and visitors, but one comes to the front of the line and that is all the great breakfast restaurants. I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy those many times in my 11 years in town and I thought I should share my experiences with our readers.
Here is my Top 5 list of favorite breakfast restaurants in town:
1. Hands down the best place to go and visit and where I spend most of my eating out money is “Freshies”. The restaurant is located on the main highway running through town and it is on the left hand side as you drive from the Mountain Village towards Downtown but right before you get there. The restaurant offers a cozy atmosphere, friendly service and of course amazing food. They always use…

Despite a burst of acitivity in July, the pace at which foreclosure notices are being filed in Routt County suggests the final 2012 total will well below the 306 filed in 2011.
Public Trustee Jeanne Whiddon said Routt County is on track to see about 250 of the foreclosure filings technically referred to as notices of election and demand, or NEDS. They do not signify that someone has lot their property but rather that the holder of the note has begun the foreclosure process. Many NEDs are cured or withdrawn before the property goes to a bank sale.
Whiddon said the pace of new NEDs continued at about 20 per month through the first six months of 2012 before uncharacteristically increasing to 37 in July.
Year to date, there have been 166 NEDs filed,…

Dr. Lawrence Yun, the Chief Economist for the National Association of Realtors recently spoke in Steamboat Springs.
He discussed some national trends that speak well for a rebounding national real estate market in the next few years.

nation has seen in the last five years.
• New construction inventory has fallen to historic lows, which will drive up demand for new construction.

3 million people a year.

There’s been a lot of attention over the last few years on the “shadow inventory” of potential foreclosures — a pent-up supply of homes that could smother an incipient housing recovery.
But there’s been comparatively less attention on the lack of new housing construction, which has helped to offset the potential damage from elevated levels of foreclosed properties. New home building has been at its lowest levels since World War II in 2009, 2010, and 2011.
“Not too many people talk about the lack of new construction over the last several years, which has set the foundation for a snapback in pricing,” says Michael Sklarz, president of real-estate research firm Collateral Analytics.
Frank Nothaft, the chief economist at Freddie Mac, elaborated on this…

Steamboat Springs — When Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage opens its new store in Steamboat Springs in September, it hopes to add local growers to its sources for organic produce.
“We’ll be a full-service grocery offering a large, large number of supplements and we’ll carry nothing but USDA-certified organic produce,” company spokeswoman Nancy Flynn said. “If there are producers of organic produce in the area, we absolutely want to take a look.”
Plans are for Vitamin Cottage to occupy about 12,000 square feet in the former David Chase Furniture and Rugs store at 355 Lincoln Ave. The property sold for
$3 million Wednesday to a Montrose developer, VC I Steamboat LLC, and the city gave its approval for a change-of-use permit for the location. The real…

The planners arrived in Steamboat Springs on Thursday night and met with Yampa Street business and property owners with the goal of hashing out an actionable plan to revitalize the roadway that runs parallel to the Yampa River.
On Saturday, the team of experts from the Colorado Chapter of the Urban Land Institute told Yampa Street stakeholders a lot can be done to increase their street’s vibrancy and accessibility to pedestrians.
The planners’ initial ideas for the roadway ranged from the addition of new river access points, sidewalks and overhead lights fashioned after Denver’s Larimer Square, to better management of existing downtown parking.
“One of the things they mentioned is Steamboat is in the dark ages when it comes to managing parking. Our…
