  • Great East Vail Home

    "Shared the home with another family over Xmas week. Could not have been happier. Home was spacious, clean and well maintained. We had two couples and 6 kids -- fit with no problem. Owner had just added a hot tub on the deck which kids loved after skiing. We took short walk to shuttle bus each day rather than drive with no problem (though we didn't carry skis most days). Best part is owner who was amazingly friendly, helpful, and attentive. Whole process: renting, arriving, staying, leaving was simply a pleasure. Thank you!"

  • Wonderful, beatiful townhome close to Vail and Bever Creek

    "We planned a somewhat last minute family ski trip to Vail, and rented this fabulous house. We are a family of 7 (mom+dad, son+wife, son, daughter, daughter) and the layout was perfect. The things that I was worried about when renting turned out to be big plusses! I was worried about not being right in the middle of Vail, but this location is so convenient to so much. Everything you need is in Avon - ski rental, restaurants, liquor store, WalMart (groceries). It was also nice to be between Vail and Beaver Creek - we skied Vail 2 days, and Beaver Creek one, since the lift tickets are good both places. We parked at Lion's Head for $25/day in Vail, and it is only about a 5 min walk to the lift. The drive to Lion's Head was maybe 10 min. The townhouse itself is beautiful, and having three floors is wonderful. Upstairs has a beautiful master with gorgeous bathroom, and a second large bedroom with a private bath. There is also a washer/dryer upstairs. The main living/dining/kitchen area is on the main floor, with beautiful marble countertops and a 1/2 bath. Below are 2 more bedrooms, each with a private bath. Also below is a living space where we spent most of our time, with a large TV with surround sound and a gas fireplace. Sliding doors lead to the hot tub which was great for sore muscles at the end of the day. There is also another set of washer/dryers on this level. Overall, we were very happy with this rental. The finishes are very nice, including Kohler in the bathrooms, and nice appliances in the kitchen. Everything is in very good condition (except the main level fireplace and downstairs mini fridge were not working, which we were informed of prior to our arrival). If you rent this unit, you won't regret it!"

  • East Vail Condo - Good choice!!!

    "We stayed here during a ski and wedding retreat. An excellent location which is quiet, cozy, comfortable and very clean. The staff was excellent - we arrived several hours early and I called to see if we could check in early. We were able to get in and drop off the luggage and groceries we brought. The condo is well stocked with utensils and dishes."

  • A fantastic vacation home

    "My wife and I enjoyed an extended time at this wonderful property. The fall colors we st their brightest and the temperature was perfect for our stay. The staff at the condo were exceptionally cordial and helpful for any need that we had. This condo is exquisitely furnished and located only steps from the gondola and 1/2 block from the bus stop if we chose not to drive ourselves. Our covered parking was steps away from our door....and the complex was gorgeous. We even got to watch our Cowboys at the tavern next door. We would recommend the property without reservation and we only hope it will be available next year....we hope to be back."

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.
