Homes in Colorado's hidden gem, Strawberry Park

If downtown Steamboat Springs had a backdoor it would be Routt County Road 36. Strawberry Park, on the northern outskirts of downtown, is prized as much for its historic and cultural features as its close proximity to town. Named for the strawberry farms that once adorned this wide arm of the valley, this is the gateway to the famous Strawberry Park Hot Springs, a natural thermal spring open to the public year-round. Buffalo Pass graces the eastern flank of Strawberry Park with access to the Routt National Forest and Mount Zirkel Wilderness. The esteemed Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp resides to the west. This 98-year-old facility has hosted distinguished professionals and celebrities of the performing arts. Homes range from cozy rustic cabins to luxurious mountain retreats.
