  • Great Place for a big group!

    "We rented this unit for mid-Jan Vail ski trip--it was wonderful. The owner was so friendly and accommodating with our last minute booking. We had 3 couples and one single adult and we all slept comfortably and had enough room to relax without stepping on each other. The unit was rated silver which was right on--it was much better than basic but not opulent. The updated kitchen was lovely and well stocked. The 4 bedrooms were very comfortable. The walk to the bus stop was ok and the bus timing was very convenient. We enjoyed the wood burning fireplace but had to purchase wood. We met lots of friendly folks in the hot tub. There is a small grocery and liquor store within steps of the unit. The WiFi was awesome. We were disappointed with the older TVs and stereo system in the unit. It would have been nice to have stereo/speakers capable of bluetooth or aux-in for ipods. In the end we really didn't watch the TV and made do with the built-in ipod speakers. The living room furniture and dining areas were very comfortable (loved the fleece throws). The indoor ski racks and assembly space was excellent! We would be very happy to rent this very comfortable unit again!!"

  • Delightful, Convenient, & Inclusive!

    "Staying someplace new can be a lot like wandering through a minefield... Unless the property owner is as accommodating, thoughtful, and attentive as Bill. It made a huge positive difference for us during our one-week stay at the height of ski season. The property is well-maintained (Bill tells us it's due for a "refresh" this spring) and comfortable - just like home, with a killer view of Gore Creek. It's less than a 10 minute walk from the gondola, there's a (expensive) sundries store across the street, and the Sonnenalp is next door (fondue!). For those who might be noise-sensitive, we found the property to be whisper-quiet during our stay (it's on the end of the building, so no neighbors, and we heard no noise from upstairs). Overall, we loved it!"

  • Ski Trip

    "We stayed here in early April with 5 families with children. This house was perfect for a large group. We all had plenty of room and the kids loved the gameroom. Dennis gave us a lot of advice before and during the trip with many aspects of the vacation. He was very helpful. The house was so well stocked - linens, soap/shampoo in bathrooms, kitchen items, tissues etc. - very generous. It was clean, spacious and we wanted for nothing. Thank you Dennis and Jim for a great vacation house (and for the great weather too) Lorraine, Paul & company The location was great, plenty of parking"

  • Best Family Ski Trip!

    "My brother and I surprised our parents with a ski trip for President's Day weekend and we could not have asked for a better condo. The location was great and the views were breathtaking. Our Timber falls condo was perfect for a family of 4 and had everything to make us feel right at home. The memories from this trip will last a life time. Thank you for sharing your home with us!"

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.
