    "We had a wonderful stay at Silver Mill River Run. Suzanne is very easy to work with and the unit is very comfortable. We hope to start staying for an extended period during the next couple of years."

  • Family Ski Week

    "What a wonderful place to make family memories! We slept 7 people (one child) very comfortably and cooked breakfast and dinner for 11 people in all each day. The fireplace wood was convenient to get from across the parking lot. The bus service to and from the slopes was key to everyone making their own schedule for the day. The natural light was amazing. We could even enjoy the full moon from the sofa! The owners were easy to communicate with and very professional. It won't be long before we will want to book another ski trip to Winter Park's Beaver Village."

  • Great Summit County Resort Access!

    "We love that we were able to have a stay of just one night due to the fact that we live in boulder county and we wanted to reduce our time on I70 for just a day of skiing. Our kids loved the game room and the hot tub was great! Kevin was very accommodating with our last minute booking on the day of and the space was perfect for two families with kids to enjoy with enough room for everyone. It is also in a perfect location to enjoy any of the summit county resorts!"

  • Best reunion yet!

    "We had 28 family members spend a week here. The location (so much to do in Dillon and towns nearby, the lake and the mountains), the lodge itself (fully supplied, roomy and clean), and the wonderful view was perfect for the size of our group and the varied interests and ages. The little ones had a blast playing and exploring, the teens and 20s had plenty of things to keep them busy and terrific places to hang out until all hours of the next morning without disturbing others, adults spent hours reminiscing and relaxing each night as well. We never felt cramped and the kitchen and its supplies was terrific. The owners were super helpful and answered all our questions. I would highly recommend it to others that have a large group wanting to experience Colorado and share time together without feeling like they are crowded under one roof. It was an amazing find!"

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.
