There is a mini stack washer / dryer that is convenient for light weight loads and, with a long dry time, can accomplish slightly heavier loads. The loft overlooks the living room and features two trundle beds (sleeps four in total) and three large skylights. Please note the loft has limited head height and parents should review photos to determine if the loft access steps are suitable for their young children.
Although there are parking spaces adjacent to the town home, you will not need a car as the restaurants, art galleries and shops of Vail Village and Lionshead are close both by foot and via the Village Shuttle Bus.
The Vail Village shuttle bus stops in front of our home. One stop west is Robson Ice Rink; Two stops west to Lionshead and Gondola. Two stops east to Vail Village and Vista Bahn Lift, four stops east to Golden Peak Lift.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
The owner of this condo spared no expense in remodeling this home with many upscale furnishings. Recently, the condo was completely renovated with all new furnishings including linens, leather furniture, flooring, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, all new cabinets, doors and fixtures, while still maintaining a welcoming, rustic lodge atmosphere.
The condo had plenty of room for a large family and featured three bedrooms, two full baths, and a kid-friendly loft with a sky-light overlooking the family room (which sleeps an additional four sleepy bear cubs). Each of the bedrooms had its own television with cable. The family room had a large flat screen television and a stone gas fireplace.
This condo offers a premium location at the base of Vail Mountain as it’s only a five-minute walk from either Vail Village or Lionshead. Each town has its distinct variety of quaint shops and restaurants. Vail Village is a European-styled village with an abundance of patio dining, eclectic shops and live music decorated by cascading flowers, potted plants and fountains. It is “unbearably” beautiful and definitely has an international feel! Lionshead Village has many choices of restaurants and shops, but one can also catch a gondola ride to the top of Vail Mountain and Adventure Ridge. The walk to Lionshead Village includes a scenic trail along Gore Creek. You’ll find parking at the complex to be very convenient as there’s a space right outside the front door.
The locale is a mecca for winter sports and an absolutely, beautiful place to spend a summer vacation with many outdoor recreational activities for the entire family.
Awesome summer activities in the area include hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, zip line adventures, and white water rafting.

EXCELLENT! Have no doubt about renting it!
EXCELLENT! Have no doubt about renting it!
I will just quickly say that, if it is within your budget, it is THE best apartment you can rent. We have been doing our homework, researching and staying at other places, and since a couple of years now, we rent it and have wonderful skiing vacations. Homy, modern, comfortable, walking distance to the Vail Village, amazing view... All that you can wish for.

I emailed and talked with Mary extensively when looking for a rental in Vail and, while we ended up going with a different unit because we needed two units in the same complex to accomodate our group size, Mary was very responsive and helpful by email and phone. I have rented through VRBO before, and you can tell pretty quickly when an owner is going to be easy to work with. Mary responded quickly, took the time to talk through all my questions, and seemed to genuinely love Vail and want to help us have a great trip. When we return with a smaller group I will look at Mary's properties first! From what I could tell the Skaal House seemed like a great option to be close in to the lifts without paying for all the amenities at a resort-type property that, personally, I was fine without.
