  • Perfect Condo for the Perfect Vacation in Vail

    "We stayed in this unit on 2 different occassions, once in December 2011 and again in December 2012. Both times the experience was perfect! The owners are great to work with and the unit is beautiful and comfortable. Both times we were with our teenage kids, while other families had nearby condos. One of the greatest ammenities was having the hot tub and clubhouse room just outside our door on our floor. The giant & incredible clubhouse room is where all of the the 6 kids took their dinner each night and where they played games, played ping pong, were rowdy, and watched TV. The adults dined in the condo with a nice fire, pretty music, wine, and luxurious surroundings. Since the condo is "hotel" like the kids would come/go in their swimsuits or post ski PJ bottoms on interior carpeted halls. Having rental movies downstairs was another great convenience along with the covered underground parking garage. This condo is outfitted well for a family but also has the luxury factor for folks seeking a romantic getaway or vacation without kids. Its just what you expect and appreciate in Vail. I cannot say enough good things about the great vacations those 2 years in this Fallridge condo and I hope to stay there again!"

  • Great Value in Vail

    "Recently stayed 4 nights in this condo for a ski trip to Vail. Overall our group had a positive experience, but here are some highlights of pros and cons. Pros: 1) Clean and kept up nicely 2) Private with nice views 3) Private hot tub nice 4) Well stocked kitchen 5) Good value 6) Owner easy to work with and responsive Cons or Considerations 1) Hot tub pretty small. 4 people comfortable, 5 pretty packed. 2) No shower or bar soap to be found. I've stayed at dozens and dozens of VRBO properties and this was the first to not have any. Had to go to store to buy which was kind of pain 3) Not enough towels for 8 people (which is what it sleeps). 4) Not enough blankets. For example, the bunk bed room had 4 mattress none of which had a blanket or comforter on. Therefore, had to search through the condo to find mix/match blankets of different sizes and quality. Would think it would be easy to just go and buy a nice blanket or cheap comforter for each bed in the house 5) The Queen Size mattress was old and not comfortable. The rest were fine 6) There is a fireplace, but no wood to use. Pretty much useless unless you want to go and search for, buy, and carry up firewood after a day of skiing. No thanks. 7) No garage to park your car in so have to clear snow off everyday. 8) Condo at the end of an uphill road. 4 wheel drive is a must! 9) As others have mentioned, it's kind of a strange layout. There are 5 floors total, but the actual condo is on the first 2 floors. You enter on the 5th, so a lot of stairs to get in and out. 10) You have to drive to Vail to ski. Not close enough to walk to the free bus station (maybe without equipment and in the summer, but not with an icy downhill road with snow). Looks like my cons list is longer than pros, but most of these items can be easily fixed or improved. I only put as a recommendation. Like one of the women who stayed with us said. "This place is nice, but you can tell it;s it's a man who is managing it. The little things are missing". This may or may not be true, but summed up the overall opinion of the group."

  • Affordable, Comfortable Lodging Option

    "I recently stayed here with a group of old college friends for our yearly ski trip. This condo was everything we could have asked for and more. With everything so expensive near Vail Village and Lionshead Village, this was a great place to stay at a fraction of the price. The condo is located right by the Vail Bus stop so we were able to get to Vail Village each morning within 10 minutes. I highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking to stay at Vail with a good size group without wanting to spend Vail dollars."

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.
