  • 12 man FATHER SON TRIP

    "Just finished our 4 night stay. Six dads and six sons all of whom are graduating from HIGH SCHOOL this June. Overall house was very solid. Loved the kitchen and man cave hang out areas. Only negatives: on arrival the house manager ANNA did not take the time to get rid of the snow on the outside deck area. Took about 45 minutes for us to shovel the ice and snow off the table and chairs on the deck. That being said we never used the outside area because it was too cold outside. I would highly recommend some kind of outdoor fire pit where guys can hang out and smoke cigars. The other complaints we had was the HOT TUB did not have a new filter on arrival and the main TV in the den did not work. Home manager ANNA did respond quickly to fix all this however when paying big money per night we expect perfection on arrival! The other thing that is kind of off kilter is the layout of the rooms. 5 bedrooms on one side of the house and 3 on the total other side. House built to represent a French Chateau which is great however you better have the strength to be able to drag your luggage up and down a ton of stairs. Any older or guests with a disability: this house no good! One final complaint. Yes you can walk to the lift however it is a huge up hill walk to get to the CHARTER SPORTS ski valet/ lift area so we drove the 2 minutes and parked in the $20 lot per day across from the entrance. Bottom line: by end of the trip we all really like the house. The house was very clean.....the beds great.....and everyone in the end was happy. Would I stay there again? Yes.......assuming Anna would make some of the changes suggested in this review. PS....I have rented 7 major houses all over USA over last 7 years. Overall I would say this is a quality rental home."

  • Comfortable and Great Location

    "We came down to Vail with two other couples and stayed in Dougs condo. The location was perfect- close to the mountain but far enough away to feel like we were in a secluded mountain home. The proximity of the bus stop and the grocery store made everything even easier. With a fully stocked kitchen, large dining room table and comfortable couches, we were thrilled to eat each meal at home. We were also provided with a recycling trash can downstairs which was hugely helpful. There were plenty of linens, towels and blankets and the house warmed up quickly once we turned on the heat. The hot tub was just what we needed at the end of each ski day. So relaxing! Thanks so much for providing us with a clean, comfortable temporary home. We will definitely rent again. Thanks!"

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.
