Ptarmigan Townhomes townhome description

There is no other like Vail! My home is 3 minutes from world-class skiing; but you'll feel like you're part of nature with Gore Creek in your back yard.

When you stay at Ptarmigan #36 (affectionately known as 'BearPaw', consider it your 'home away from home'. Everything is there for you - just come on in and start your vacation! This contemporary, but cozy, townhouse is conveniently located minutes from everything you want and need: the free bus is outside the doorstep, the grocery store is minutes away.

Here is what to expect: the kitchen has granite counter-tops, maple cabinets, and top-of-the-line appliances. The stove top is gas and the oven is electric! Grill on the outside grill - year around. There is a wood burning fireplace and flat screen TV in the sunken living area. This small, 40 townhouse complex has a hot-tub in the common area - it is always very clean and professionally managed.

Sleeping accommodations are upstairs, with 2 bedrooms, a den and a loft - sleeps 4-6 comfortably (maximum capacity of 6). The master has a beautiful brass, king size bed. There is a flat screen TV for your viewing enjoyment. The second bedroom has a cherry, sleigh bed with a quality queen size mattress. This bedroom has a private, full size bathroom. It also has a flat screen TV. The den has 2- single twin beds; the den is open so it is not considered a private bedroom. A step ladder goes to the loft where there is extra sleeping room with 2 mattresses. Kids love this space.

I am a '(comfy) bed snob' - and, I'm told, the beds are 'oh so comfortable'!

Need something - the grocery stores (Safeway and City Market), liquor store, ski rental shops, restaurants are 3 minutes away via bus or car. Have a wonderful, relaxing time - make memories in Vail and at BearPaw.

The rates are lower for this unit due to owner management.

Please note the rates: Calculate the rate per night plus a 9.8% Vail tax. Add a $120 cleaning fee. This is the total rate.

No pets/No smoking.

Reservations can be paid for by checks. I do take a credit card but there is a small fee to use. Checks should be sent to: AA Vail @ 368 Taylor St. #F, Columbia, SC 29201. Questions please feel free to contact me.

                      Location

                      My home is in a smaill townhome division. It sits right on Gore Creek. The townhomes are managed by a professional company so the walks are shoveled, hot tub is very well maintained, and pool is top notch maintained (in the summer). The FREE Town of Vail bus is seconds away from my door step.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About the owner: I've lived in Colorado for over 25 years but now live in Columbia, South Carolina. I'm originally from Pittsburgh. I have a manager but still do all the bookings. My family, husband and 4 daughters - ages 19 through 27, grew up skiing, hiking, and loving the outdoors. We enjoy our home in the mountains but, also love to share it with others.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ptarmigan Townhomes:
                      West Vail was the perfect place for us. Close to everything but with the privacy and quiteness of a get-away. Plus, we love the amenities of the bus at our door step and hot tub - after a great day on the mountain. Can't beat the location - right on Gore Creek.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      Gore Creek provides not only a scenic delight but also a listening joy and privelege - visible from every room in the down stairs and master bedroom.
