                              Year Purchased: 2001

                              About the owner: With 6 bedrooms and 5 baths, our home has plenty of room for our large extended family. We love to cook and entertain both summer and winter. The large stone patio faces the National Forest and we try to be on the patio early in the morning and just before dusk to watch the deer go from the Gore Creek below us back to their Meadow home above us in the Forest. I have been skiing in Vail since 1970. My first date with my wife was a ski day in Vail in 1974 - the rest is history, as they say. We love Vail year round!Our favorite ski lunch spot is Belle's Camp at the top of Blue Sky Basin, with its 360 degree view. Bring a picnic - Vail even has grills set up so you can BBQ your own brats... Favorite summer picnic spot - That's a hard one. There are so many beautiful hiking areas... we will leave a list for you at the house.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              My favorite spots to relax in the house include the 7' long, comfy window seats in the breakfast room. I lay there and watch the snow storms roll past or soak up the sun. The porch on the highest level of the house is a perfect spot to roll out a camping mat and sleep under the stars in the summer. The radiant heated floors are great for plopping down a pillow and watching local TV8 to catch up on events in the Vail area or listening to my favorite jazz programs on local radio stations. We have a unique, private location with a large yard which flows into the National Forest. There are 3 beautiful flower bed areas with native plants and trees and a 100' hill in the back with wildflowers.
