  • Austria Haus condos are fabulous!!!!!

    "My wife and I have stayed at the Austria Haus for the past three years and have been impressed with the ease of getting the exact condo we wish with Michele Garner. The condo is beautifully appointed, centrally located and staffed with great people who take care of your every need. The central location is the best with parking and ease to walk to all places of Vail. We love the breakfast each morning and with daily papers such as the WSJ and USA Today. We plan to go again next year!!"

  • Awesome condo! Perfect for having friends in town

    "This place was great! Had everything you needed: ample sleeping room, hot tub (shared with condo community, but we were the only ones who used it), 30 second walk to shuttle to slopes which is about a 5 minute ride. IF you are having friends in town or just want to have a place of your own for a weekend at vail this place is perfect, tremendous value for the price per night. Only downside were the thin walls to the neighbors condo, we were listening to music at a very reasonable level at about 8:30pm and the neighbors asked that we turn it down. I think it was just that the speakers were up against the shared wall. Nonetheless, friendly and polite neighbors, wasn't an issue we were just conscious of our noise level the rest of the time."

  • A True Mountain Home

    "We have stayed at this property twice over the last three years and it has become a destination for our family. Each bedroom is incredibly comfortable, warm, and cozy. The kitchen is setup the way we wish we had ours setup at home.....and this is truly a "home". All the personal touches in each room are testimony to the owners taste and desire to share their vision for what a mountain home high in the Rockies should be like. Once you stay here you will be back because it is a great home away from home."

  • Villa Cortina in Vail Village

    "This condo was clean and in the heart of Vail Village in beautiful Vail, CO. We had a wonderful stay and for the most part we were pleased with the rental. Two things that were a disappointment: the pool that was advertised was actually empty and no one notified us and the bbq that was advertised had an empty propane tank so we couldn't use it."

Vail Travel Tips

The municipality of Vail, Colorado, was originally built as a base village for the Vail Ski Resort but has since grown to become a popular mountain getaway. While the town experiences warm summers, the winters are cold due to its Rocky Mountain location and receives an average of 200 inches of snow per season - making it a ski haven.

Vail Attractions

Blue Sky Basin is an expansion of Vail Ski Resort and features chairlifts taking skiers and snowboarders up Vail Mountain. This natural ski experience boasts a 1,900-foot vertical drop with wide, clear-cut runs. The mountain has more than 5,200 acres of downhill and cross-country trails and is considered one of the best in the world.

Vail isn't just for winter vacations, you can also stay when the weather's warm and check out Gore Creek Fly Fishing. Guided fly fishing trips are available and a trip will take you down numerous rivers including Eagle River, Gore Creek, the Colorado River, the Roaring Fork River and the Yampa River. Fly fishing in Vail is some of the best you can find in the area and is an ideal activity for families and friends visiting the area.

Adventure Ridge is open during summer and winter and offers several activities fit for the whole family. There are also hiking and mountain biking opportunities as well as scenic views. Take a scenic gondola ride up the mountain and gaze at the views along the way. You can go tubing in the winter and zip line in the summer. The ZipLine features four lines that are 1,200 feet long and send you flying through the air at 10,000 feet. There's also a kid's zipline for young thrill seekers looking for adventure during their stay in Vail. Kids also have access to a climbing wall, rebounding trampoline and a ropes course made just for them. Other winter activities at Adventure Ridge include showshoeing, snowmobiling and ski biking.

The Betty Ford Alpine Gardens are the world's highest botanical garden with an altitude of 8,200 feet. The gardens are open year round, but you'll want to visit during the warmer months of the year for peak flower season. When you visit the gardens you can see innovative exhibits, programs, interpretations and media. You will get to see the Children's Garden, Schoolhouse Garden, Mountain Perennial Garden, Mountain Meditation Garden and the Alpine Rock Garden.

Explore your surroundings with a walk on the Vail Recreation Path. This 15-mile paved trail takes you throughout town and is located parallel to the golf course. There are 35,000 acres that surround the path.
