NOTE: NOT ski in/ski out but extremely handy for both Beaver Creek and Vail with, miss the crowds, great lift access from the Valley. This home doesn't have 14 five star reviews for nothing; guests return year after year. Be in no doubt the views from the house are just the best!
***** Star: Guest - Ric (Pennsylvania) -- I can say, that the quality of the home itself as well as the classy decor provide for a first class experience..... views are spectacular..... dealing with the owners has been a pleasure.... I highly recommend you put this property high up on your list!
***** 5 Star: Guest - Peter (Canada) -- The owners' description sums it up perfectly! It's been our home in the Vail area for several years..... we're always sad to leave.... Everything you could possibly need is there, right down to the olive oil, spices and peanut butter...... The highest recommendation !!
---------------- Very Family Friendly - Agreed on Pets. Our home is offered for each month of the ski season, Summer and Fall.
'THE VIEWS FROM HERE ARE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING - WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE!' THAT'S A PRETTY TYPICAL VISITOR COMMENT. OVERWHELMINGLY, MOST WANT TO VISIT AND STAY AGAIN. WITHOUT DOUBT, FROM THE HOUSE, WE HAVE, POSSIBLY, THE MOST AMAZING VIEWS IN THE VAIL VALLEY. OUR HOME BEING HIGH IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS, ALL OF THE RESPECTIVE SEASONS ARE UNIQUE IN THEIR OWN WAYS. FOR EXAMPLE, AS SPRING TURNS TO SUMMER, THE ARRAY OF ALPINE FLOWERS IS A FEAST FOR THE EYES – THE ABUNDANCE OF LIVE, OUTDOOR AND INDOOR, ENTERTAINMENT SPOILS YOU FOR CHOICE; IT CAN RANGE FROM CLASSICAL CONCERTS GIVEN BY THE NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA TO FULL ROCK CONCERTS. MOST DAYS, THERE IS SOME ENTERTAINMENT OFFERED. THEN THERE IS THE VARIETY OF SPORTING ACTIVITIES – ANYTHING FROM, SKIING/SNOWBOARDING, GOLF TO TENNIS, HORSEBACK RIDING TO WHITEWATER RAFTING, MOUNTAIN/ROAD BIKING AND, ENDLESS HIKING. IT'S NO EXAGGERATION TO SAY THAT THE VAIL/BEAVER CREEK VALLEY OFFERS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE – EVEN SOME GREAT SHOPPING. WINTER TAKES CARE OF ITSELF, OFFERING SOME OF THE VERY BEST SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING ON THIS SIDE OF THE ATLANTIC. LASTLY, YOU CAN SEE THE FALL/AUTUMN GRADUALLY TURNING TO WINTER; AS IT DOES SO, THE CONTRAST OF AUTUMNAL COLORS IS, ALWAYS, MAGNIFICENT. THEN, EVERYDAY, THERE'S THE CHANCE OF SEEING A SPECTACULAR MOUNTAIN SUNSET; THAT, AFTER YOU'VE WATCHED THE SUN MOVE ACROSS THE SKY FROM DAWN TO DUSK. OUR STREET IS CALLED LONGSUN LANE FOR GOOD REASON. BE IN NO DOUBT, OUR HOME IS TRULY WONDERFUL FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SPEND TIME LIVING HIGH ABOVE THE VAIL/BEAVER CREEK VALLEY.
I asked a friend, apart from the incredible views of course, what she thought was the best feature of our home. She replied, 'Privacy! By that I mean, everyone can be together yet, can find seclusion and privacy in the house, if that's what they want.'
The house is well situated for those who want access to both BEAVER CREEK & VAIL plus other resorts. The house is around 12 minutes from Beaver Creek Village and around 18 minutes from Vail. You will DEFINITELY need a vehicle to live up here. There is no shuttle service.
IT GETS EVEN BETTER! No longer do you have to go to Beaver Creek Village to gain access to the ski terrain. There is a fantastic addition, running from the Westin Hotel. It is a new Gondola ski lift traveling right from the valley floor; plus, a great way to get up Beaver Creek Mountain is out of Arrowhead. You will be transported to the, uncrowded Bachelor Gulch ski area of Beaver Creek resort; site of the Ritz Carlton Hotel – a great lunch spot.
From the deck of our home, you see views of Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch, Arrowhead and the Wasach Mountain ranges; most of the year, you see snow capped peaks towering above 13 or 14,000 feet. Such, ‘to die for’ views, simply cannot be seen from Beaver Creek itself.
Added to this, our luxurious home is a wonderful place to put your feet up after a day of, almost, any activity you choose. The, mostly, sun-drenched house is in a Cul-de-Sac; therefore it is very quiet. The, NON SMOKING, house sleeps 10 (4 bedrooms; one of which is great for getting down time from the kids, if you want that. Our home has a master suite (newly refurbished & decorated) with King bed and walk in closet.
PARTY TIME! It's great party house.
The remaining 3 bedrooms, (one of which can sleep 2 extra with the inclusion of 2 bunk beds; great for kids!), have Queen beds, also have their own, en-suite bathrooms. Outside of the double garage there is parking space for numerous more vehicles.
The main floor! This is the best vantage for the great views. It includes a very large lounge room (soft furnishings & dining area) with a grand, gas fireplace and cathedral ceiling, deck, full spacious kitchen, master suite, powder room, laundry room and powerful stereo system (including an iPod connection). Naturally, there is Wifi.
The first/ground floor has an entrance hall with coat closet, two of the queen size bedrooms are also situated on this floor. Inside the double garage there is a full free weight training facility, ski room for storing boots and other ski gear. There is a large ski rack too.
I doubt you'll be disappointed. Nobody ever is. AN ALL-AROUND, INCREDIBLE PLACE TO SPEND TIME! We look forward to seeing you at our gorgeous home very soon! Wishing you all safe travels.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: Lynn and Chalky have been married since 2003; they have lived in their high mountain house, ever since -- Why would they want to leave such an incredible place? Chalky, has long worked in Beaver Creek; he is a high profile and internationally qualified ski instructor who will work with you anywhere in the world. (To book him, write to the posted e-mail address ). Year after year he is retained by long standing skiing clients.
Why the Owner Chose Other Beaver Creek Properties: Why do we still choose to live in our home? The answer is simple - we've found nowhere else that can offer such magnificent views and persistent sunshine. How about, on average, 300 days a year.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Again, those, almost, unbeatable views! Due to the copious amounts of sunshine (average 300 days per year), it is a house of light with very large windows. As a result, the house always feels spacious; of course, it is anyway.
