LISTING: This property has been on VRBO/HomeAway for 9 years. With many excellent reviews, we hope this fact allows you to feel comfortable booking Winterhaus.

LOCATION: A desirable East Vail neighborhood is 3 miles from Vail Village. This house is located on Lupine Drive, which consists of 'high-end' duplexes and single family homes. (no condos, apartments or townhouses on Lupine Drive). Winterhaus guests experience privacy in a true mountain neighborhood while avoiding issues typically associated with multi unit condo dwellings or hotels. (close quarters, parking challenges, additional noise and resort fees)

INTERIOR: This is a functional home. It is NOT a new home. The interior is updated, but it is NOT deluxe. If you desire a clean, uncluttered, functional space, this property will be a good fit.

1. RENTING A HOME IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. Please be realistic about the level of attention, service and amenities you desire. If you require a concierge, spa, valet, bellman, daily maid service, bathroom amenities, on-site maintenance, we suggest booking a FULL SERVICE HOTEL and not a private home.

2. RENTAL PROCESS- If your requested dates are available and our pricing is acceptable, please request a rental agreement. Also, make sure your request for a quote includes a precise guest count. Our maximum is 8 guests.

3. LOCATION: With close proximity to trailheads and the free town shuttle, Winterhaus is most suitable for active, independent guests who to spend the bulk of their time outdoors.

4. LINENS- Our towels, duvet covers and bed linens are white. Stained or flawed linens are continually removed from our inventory. Duvet covers, sheets, mattress pads and pillow protectors are laundered after each guest departure. (NO "BEDSPREADS") We receive coments comparing our bedding to both Four Seasons and Relais Chateaux hotel rooms.

5. AVAILABILITY: Booking in advance is necessary. Visit our calendar and if your preferred dates are available, send us an inquiry. Our calendar is updated on a daily basis.

6. MAID SERVICE: We include charges for one exit cleaning in your quote. If you desire a mid- stay towel exchange or additional housekeeping services, we can accommodate guest requests. Securing maid service in Vail is difficult and expensive, so we ask guests to give us, at least, one week advance notice if you require additional maid/laundry services. Once a maid/linen services are confirmed, no refunds will be granted for date changes or for service cancellations. Last minute requests for housekeeping and/or early check-in and late check-outs can be difficult, but we'll do our best to assist.

7. Appliances and Extras: Do you know many rental homes do not supply toilet paper? We provide TP and other amenities to make your stay enjoyable. If an appliance malfunctions we'll make an effort to replace it within 72 Hours. We do not guarantee immediate replacement for items such as a toaster, coffee maker, dishwasher, washer/dryer, garbage disposal, boot dryer, iron, blowdryer, humidifier, heated mattress pad, mixer, blender, waffle maker.

Sifting through profiles can be arduous. These suggestions may help:

HINT #1:
READ property descriptions thoroughly to be sure you know exactly what you are booking.

Vail Town shuttle is key. Make sure the rental house is serviced by the Vail town shuttle route. ALL properties, located on the free Vail town shuttle route, have the Vail zip code (81657). Some homes have a 15 minute walk to the closest shuttle stop.

HINT #3:
Vail is small but the surrounding 'Vail Valley' can be as far as 40 miles away. A Vail Valley home owner might list their location as VAIL when the home is located in Minturn, Eagle, Avon, Edwards, Beaver Creek, Eagle Vail. On VRBO/Homeaway it is your job to do your homework. If a house is NOT on the free Vail Town Shuttle route, you will certainly incur extra costs. (town parking $30, taxi fares, and bus fares.

HINT #4:
How do the photos grab you? Make sure you are comfortable with the photos and living space before inquiring.

Reviews: On the VRBO site there is an important property listing detail which designates the number of years the property has been on VRBO/Home Away. Homes listed for one year or longer will have received at least one review. If a property has "NO" reviews, the home owner has chosen to hide at least one negative review. We encourage both positive and negative reviews because they provide us with an opportunity to refine and improve the guest experience.

~ MASTER BEDROOM #1-on the upper level features a KING size, pillow-top bed. This room has a large bathroom with a shower & a separate deep soaking, jetted hot tub and a small flat screen TV. Master bedroom features skylights allowing you to see the pine trees above. The west facing views of Bald Mountain are stunning. This bedroom is sunny and bright, perfect for early risers who enjoy waking-up with the sun.

~ BUNK ROOM- This room sleeps maximum of 3 children OR 2 adults. This small room features a full-size bed, with a twin bed on top. This room also has a twin bed adjacent to the bunk bed. We allow up to 3 children in the bunk room. Shared lavatory features a rain shower with pebbles on the floor and walls.

~QUEEN BED ROOM- a mid-level with a platform bed. This room features a small balcony with West facing views of Bald Mountain. Queen room shares a lavatory with the bunk room.

~ KING BEDROOM #2 Bedroom with a KING bed. This room adjoins the lower TV area and there is NO dividing wall. A lavatory is accessed outside the bedroom entrance. The 3/4 lavatory features a rain shower & modern tiling. This room works well for guests who prefer a dimmer sleeping environment.

~TV Area:
If you are looking for a largeTV/ MEDIA room, this is NOT the home for you. This room has a medium size, flat screen TV. (40 x 30 inches) We also provide a DVD player. With a large leather sectional, a recliner chair, and three bean bag chairs, this area seats 8 guests. The TV area features west facing views of Bald Mountain. This area is part of the lower master bedroom. (not separated)

~ LIVING AREA-SOLARIUM- Comfortable lounging space with a leather couch, modern furniture, and an electric fireplace.

~ KITCHEN/DINING- The kitchen has both counter-top seating and a dining table to seat 7 guests. (6 chairs + bench) This area hosts a small flat screen TV visible from both the dining & the living areas.

Jetted tub- We provide a jetted tub in the upper, master bathroom which accommodates one (possibly two) guests. We provide locally made, organic bath salt, at no charge.

NO Hot Tub~ There is NO outdoor hot tub at Winterhaus. Owners of Winterhaus, focus on providing a germ and chemical free environment for guests. The reality is that a hot tub would compromise our hygene standards. If a hot tub is important, we direct guests to an athletic club two miles away. The facility hosts a hot tub, pool, fitness classes, etc. NOTE: This facility will charge you a daily fee.

ENTRY AREA- Winterhaus has ample storage space for snow sports gear as well as hiking, fishing gear in the summer. This area features boot dryers for up to six pairs of ski/snowboard boots.

PATIO AND SUNDECK- The grill is located next to the front patio. The table & chairs seat 6. The north deck is available May-October. In SUMMER months, the deck features outdoor couch, chairs and table. The 1/4 acre yard is forested with ample space for children to play. The deck and backyard are not maintained in the winter. A shovel is provided for clearing the entry path, yard and deck.

PETS- Winterhaus does NOT accommodate pets. We keep a hygienic, housekeeping standard so pets would compromise this rule. If your pet must come on your trip, we recommend a local overnight pet kennel/facility for your furry friend.

PHOTOS- If you feel that a part of Winterhaus is not clearly represented, we will supply you with additional photos.
