Steamboat featured in the Wall Street Journal for reasonably priced vacation homes

No surprise here, while Steamboat is no means cheap it does represent an excellent value in comparison to other top ski resorts and upcoming improvements are likely to make today's prices even more of a value.

From the Wall Street Journal:
Vacation Home Locales with Reasonable Prices
The Wall Street Journal's real estate Web site,, points to a dozen "tempting" locations in the United States where the price of vacation homes haven’t risen into the stratosphere. If you or a client is in the market for a second home, these are some spots to consider:

* Driggs, Idaho. A home just outside of town with a view of the Teton Mountain range and very close to Jackson Hole for $699,000.
* Blairsville, Ga. A mountainview residence, surrounded by forest, for $298,700.

* Steamboat Springs, Colo. A home near the ski-base area for $799,000. Once primarily a ranching town, Steamboat Springs goes by the nickname "Ski Town U.S.A."

* Clarksville, Va. A log home just off Buggs Island/Kerr Lake for $529,000.
* Dadeville, Ala. A home on Lake Martin less than two hours from Atlanta for $790,000.
* Cloudcroft, N.M. A Cloudcroft mountain retreat, surrounded by Lincoln National Forest, for $350,000.
* Eureka Springs, Ark. A Beaver Lake waterfront home in the Ozark Mountains for $599,900.
