Recent Vail reviews

  • Beautiful house and great location

    "We rented this beautiful home through VRBO for a week during the holidays and it was a fantastic experience. Great correspondence from the owner prior to arrival and check in and check out was very simple. The house was incredible and the location was very convenient. The bus stops at the end of the driveway and takes you to Vail Transportation which is 2 min from Vail Village. The mornings we skied we walked to Lionshead across the pedestrian bridge which is a short distance from the house. It only took 10 minutes to get to the Lionshead Gondola. I would definitely rent this house again on future trips to Vail."

  • Felt like home!

    "Mary thank you so much for letting us use your condo this weekend. It's lovely, and cozy, and was just perfect for my dad and I. We sat on the deck and watched the river and had breakfast. The short walk to the village was so convenient! If we come back to Vail, we will be staying here!"

  • Awesome!!

    "This home exceeded our expectations by far. We really enjoyed the proximity to town along with extremely private grounds. It's very modern and open, but there is still enough interior privacy that accommodated our large family nicely. Definitely coming back!!!"

    "Just leaving here today after staying for the past 3 nights...generally don't review on VRBO but given this condo didn't have a review figure I'd throw one out there. Description is accurate, small 1 BR condo, was fine for just my wife and I from a size standpoint, but we have 3 crazy young sons and wouldn't have wanted to stay with them here. The kitchen and bathroom, both small, but serve their purpose...good size bedroom and the king size bed was very comfortable. Overall, if your looking for a great value in an A+ location (literally a 1 minute walk to the heart of Lionshead and transportation center), this is a good place to hang your hat. Vantage Point is not the sexiest project around (stairways smell like mold) but overall the condo we stayed in was very clean and functional. Overall I'd say for the value, we'd likely stay here again. Couple of inexpensive things could be done to upgrade this unit so it doesn't feel quite as dated: 1. The appliances worked, but could be upgraded. The mini-fridge seems to be on its last legs. 2. Even just buying cheap plastic adirondak chairs for the deck would make it more inviting than the white plastic ones that look like they will break if you sit on them 3. Just adding some color whether via some inexpensive art or something, could go a long way for not a lot of money."

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.
