So nice to find the genuine article. Lots of local interest and outdoor books and maps. A nice place to browse.

Great to have a bookstore and coffee place in town. It's cozy and not like Starbucks. It's probably my go-to place to meet one-on-one with a business associate in the upstairs loft. It's tiny and usually just locals know of this little gem.

Just off the main drag in Steamboat, Off the Beaten Path is a great place to grab a cup of coffee and browse the shelves for interesting reading. Busy and popular with locals and tourists alike, it makes a fine stop while shopping/exploring Steamboat.

Amazing store. Warm, inviting and cozy. Great stop for gifts, pastries, coffee and of course books. They have a large section of recommended books from the owner and employees-perfect if you’re traveling and need a quick pick recommendation. I could easily spend half a day...More

Thank you for sharing your visit to Off the Beaten Path. Nothing matters to us more than when parents and children share their love for books. Perhaps your daughter would like Reading on Ranches camp run by BookTrails? see mybooktrails.org.

What a great place to search for gifts. Everyone can use a book. My son got a coffee and said it was good. Also was great to find a restroom. Would have loved to sit and relax upstairs.

Coffee is very good here. Great place to sit and read, find a new book log onto your computer or just read the paper. Lots of locals go here.

We absolutely love this store. The book selection is great, the shop personnel is super friendly and helpful, and best of all, they have a small coffee shop with little tables so you can peruse books while you sip your java! It's everything a bookstore...More

A fairly average coffee shop. There are better ones in town (7th and oak) Pastries fine and coffee fine. Just didn't stand out
