The Bear broke out his snow gear for a fabulous stay at this GREAT East Vail mountain home. As if the beauty of Vail’s wintery wonderland was not enough, the Bear was VERY impressed with many aspects of this home, particularly the open kitchen and living areas which made both early morning pre-ski and early evening après-ski time together so much fun. Each unique bedroom with its own bathroom, two of which have loft spaces, provided adequate sleeping and bathing privacy for the Bear and his friends. The Bear loved walking out the front door, walking less than 3 minutes to the bus and riding 10-15 minutes to Vail Village, exploring Vail mountain on his snowboard, and partaking in Vail’s nightlife including dinners at Game Creek and La Bottega and watching music legend Roy over at the Marriott lounge sing his favorite tunes. When the Bear took a day off from hitting the slopes, he read his book in the living area gazing at the beautiful white mountains, played chess with friends, sat in the hot tub to rest his Bear paws, and cooked his favorite dish of turkey tacos. The owners made the Bear feel so welcome with all of their suggestions and by ensuring that all amenities were just right for their guests. The Bear was even greeted by the neighborhood fox Cleo and they became great friends over leftover bacon! Many many thanks to Richard and Emily for a great stay!

About the owner: The house is co-owned by the Grodahl and Vogel families. My wife, Emily, and I live in Orange County, CA. We attended CU Boulder and developed a love of the Rockies that we have passed down to our children. My sister, Katie Vogel, and her husband Brian, also have strong ties to Colorado. Katie is a CU grad and Brian grew up in Evergreen. He graduated from Notre Dame, but we don't hold it against him. The Vogels and their children live in the Denver Area. We have a long history of vacationing together. Co-owning a mountain home has been a rewarding family experience. Our children especially enjoy spending time together in Vail. Our familes love to ski, hike, and bike. Vail is the perfect mountain destination! World class skiing and a terrific village setting make Vail our home away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We wanted a home in a great location with plenty of room for family and friends. The four of us spent a year visiting different mountain towns throughout Colorado and Utah. Vail quickly rose to the top of the list. After staying in many locations throughout Vail, we found East Vail to be the best for many reasons. Easy freeway and frontage road access, convenient Town to Vail bus access, nearby grocery store, Gore Creek and trail access are just a few of the features which make Bighorn Lodge a great choice for vacationing.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Run, bike, or cross-country ski along beautiful Gore Creek. Grab your fly rod and cast a few in nearby Gore Creek. Catch the free TOV bus for a short ride into Vail Village or Lionshead. Relax and enjoy this comfortable, peaceful, and beautiful family home.
