Recent Vail reviews

  • Annual ski trip

    "Had a great time once again in Vail, largely to the great accomodation we had. It's location couldn't get any better in my opinion. The staff where very obliging and the unit was spotlessly clean, and most importantly was very competitive price wise. I would thoroughly recommend to stay here. I will be back next year."

  • Amazing time

    "We had such an amazing time in Patricks place! Patrick was really easy to deal with when I started looking around for a good place to stay during the Alpin World Championship. He was helpful from the first second and everything was organized when we arrived in Avon. We were 18 adults in there and had more then enough space. In the evenings we were cooking, playing games or enjoyed the time in the hot top outside. The place is located between Vail and Beaver Creek and it was easy to get around in the area. So definitely I would recommend this place to all bigger groups and I'm so sure everyone will love it as we did."

  • 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."

  • Horse Mountain Ranch

    "We stayed at the house for our spring break ski vacation with 3 other families. The stay was great! When we arrived, the house was exactly what we were looking for. It was beautifully decorated and very spacious with three floors. If you are going skiing the two closest ski areas are Beaver Creek and Vail. We liked them both and they are 25-35 minutes away respectively. We recommend renting skis in town for they are half the price and no line. After a long day of skiing you get to come back and relax in the hot tub or the sauna. There is a great fire pit outside where we hung out at every night. All in all, the house is wonderful and we really had a great time. We would definitely recommend this house."

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.
