  • 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."

  • This place is AWESOME!!!

    "We rented this unit for my 30th birthday weekend and we had such an amazing time. The place slept all 9 of us comfortably, the kitchen was stocked with every item we needed, and the updated interior is fantastic. We've stayed at other units in this building, and you can tell the owner has spent some time and money to make their place as comfortable as possible. The short walk to the bus stop and hot tub was perfect for us! Bus ride into town takes no time at all and is so much better than driving and paying for parking. The grocery store is pretty well stocked for being a smaller store. Booking was super easy, very streamlined, and when we wanted to extend our stay by one night at the last minute, he got back to us right away. His responses were always very timely, which makes this place a 10 in my book! We will forever book this place when we stay in Vail!"

  • Great find

    "This was a great spot for my family. Excellent location, we could easily walk to the Cascade lift, and even skied down the West Vail trees right to our back door! Loved the family room/gathering area - great for hanging out. Thanks so much!"

  • The Perfect Getaway for a big group

    "My family of 12 descended on Kathy's house for 8 days and we had the most amazing time. The house is clean and the pictures don't do it justice. The house is big enough that we didn't feel like we were on top of each other all of the time. The patio and grassy area in the back is perfect for kids to play. The river is amazing and I am pretty sure my husband would still be there catching fish if he could. Many of us took naps in the hammock. The kitchen is stocked with the basics. It could use a couple of pyrex dishes for making enchiladas or lasagna. The rooms are very spacious and the bathrooms were nicely appointed. Having two refrigerators was a huge benefit. We had food inside and drinks outside. The bike trail is very close and was utilized regularly by our group. I would definitely rent this house again. Kathy knew how important this trip was to our family and I am very thankful for all that she did."

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.
