  • Wonderful Ski Townhouse

    "This townhouse is a wonderful place to stay for a ski vacation in Vail. The place is very clean and is nicely furnished. The rooms are large and each of the three bedrooms has an associated bathroom. The location is great. The townhouse is about 15 meters from the Vail bus stop. The bus ride to either Cascade or Lionshead is about 5 minutes, and the lifts are pretty close to the bus stops. When we started each day, we would typically ride the bus to the Cascade bus stop because the Cascade lift is not very far from the Cascade bus stop, about 40 meters or so. In addition, there is a place to buy lift tickets about 5 meters from the Cascade lift. The lifts at Lionshead are a little farther from the bus stop but are not too far. The buses came every 30 minutes and are very convenient. This place definitely made our vacation wonderful."

  • Great Condo!

    "Vail is Vail, expect to be wowed, nothing more needs to be said. The condo was better then imagined. Ellen at Vail Valley Real Estate Brokers was more than helpful. Furnishings were up to date, clean and spacious for a two BR. The deck had a nice view and the location was close to everything. The back bed room (with no windows) was perfect for sleeping, dark and quiet. I can't say enought about how wonderful our vacation was and the condo was icing on the cake."

  • Spacious, Upscale, Convenient...

    "This place feels more like a beautiful home than a rental property. The comfortable living areas are tastefully done and quite large, including a big dining table, well appointed chef's kitchen and a lovely fireplace. I loved all of windows in the main room that provide great views and lots of natural light. There is a convenient back entrance from the parking area and a front entrance through a pretty patio. The private hot tub is well maintained as is the rest of the unit. It's very convenient to the bus stop, making it easy to get to and from the slopes, restaurants, spas and shopping. Our stay was comfortable and hassle-free."

  • Great Condo!

    "Clean and modern, well-appointed, walk to everything! Loved the first-floor location and in-unit laundry. Only complaint is the bedspreads are polyester and thus, very hot. Prefer cotton or other breatheable material."

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.
