  • Ski weekend in Vail

    "This condo provided the perfect base to ski Vail over several days. The condo was well furnished, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. The bed was cozy and there was ample room for us to hang out after a long day of skiing. The Intown shuttle is about 50 yards from the condo, so you can explore all of Vail Village & Lionshead without needing a car. The owner was extremely helpful and communicative. The condo might be a tad on the small side if you tried to fit more than 2 adults, but you certainly could use the pull-out sofa for additional guests. There is a full kitchen with lots of dishes/pots/pans/utensils so you can dine in and save a few dollars. The hot tubs looked inviting, but we never made it down stairs to check them out. We look forward to staying here again the next time we are in town. We recommend Terra Bistro, Alpenrose, and Sweet Basil for dinner in Vail Village. There is a storage locker in the garage under the condo (parking is included...which saves about $20+ per day) so we could store our skis/poles. The walk from the condo to the gondola / chairlift in Lionshead is about 5 - 10 minutes (any closer and you would pay 2x - 3x more per night). Highly recommended!"

  • Fantastic home base for a ski trip

    "I stayed in 'the Bear House' with 4 friends over the weekend. We loved the place. The décor was fun, there were movies and cards for us to play in the evenings, and the hot tub was much appreciated. The location was perfect - 5 minutes from Beaver Creek's free parking lot and 10 minutes from Vail. I walked around the neighborhood each morning, and the scenery was beautiful. Everyone in my group had plenty of space to spread out, and we found everything we needed in the kitchen. The owner was very communicative and answered all of my questions ahead of time, too. We look forward to returning next year!!!"

  • Austria Haus condos are fabulous!!!!!

    "My wife and I have stayed at the Austria Haus for the past three years and have been impressed with the ease of getting the exact condo we wish with Michele Garner. The condo is beautifully appointed, centrally located and staffed with great people who take care of your every need. The central location is the best with parking and ease to walk to all places of Vail. We love the breakfast each morning and with daily papers such as the WSJ and USA Today. We plan to go again next year!!"

  • Excellent property!!! LOVE THE VIEW

    "This condo has a great location, clean, good layout and the view is amazing!!!! We were 4 friends and fit in easily. The parking was nice, just in front of our door. also the shuttle was so easy, the sandstone creek club stop is just across the street. we did that almost every day. It is an easy walk to Vail Village if you want to go out to eat. The decoration of the apartment is pretty nice, has a lot of art and nice design items. Vail is very expensive so it was nice to find a condo that was more affordable then the others we looked at online. I have been coming to vail for 20 years already and this is one of the best apartments I have stayed in. The owner, Anna, is incredible at helping make your vacation work. She was very responsive to emails and phone calls. When our travel plans changed because of my sister ski accident and we tried to add a late checkout at the end of our stay, Anna let us even though she was planning to use the condo that day for cleaning. She was extremely accommodating!!! It is nice to rent from such a great owner, thanks Anna for all!"

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.
