  • Perfect for our extended family vacation !

    "When we arrived there was such a warm welcome, of beautiful flowers in the kitchen a cake, cookies, fruit, juice, milk, and coffee waiting for us. We were also welcomed by a family of deer, which visited us every day, as well as a bunny. The house was perfect for all 10 of us, plenty of room, and the views are amazing from the deck and the rooms. The game room and the media room provided great entertainment for everyone, there are many games in the house. The kitchen was great, and very well equipped, we had most of our meals outside. The house feels outside the city, but is only minutes from activities, shopping, and close to the highways. This was a great place to create lasting family memories. We had such a good time, I would recommend this house for everyone. The owner was wonderful, easy to reach and accommodating! Thank you from all of our family."

  • Seclusion without isolation

    "Perched high above Ridgway, surrounded by pinyon pines and junipers, there is plenty of privacy complemented with exceptional mountain views from the cottage and the property. It's an easy drive into Ridgway or Ouray for the amenities of town. The mountains are also easily accessed for all they have to offer. The cottage itself is very comfortable - no rustic cabin! It was very cozy for the two of us. We'll be back!"

  • The Perfect location for kids and adults alike!

    "We stayed at Chris's condo and had such a great time. Great access to a paved bike trail and we were able to bike to town daily (3 miles-ish) with a 5 and 8 year old. My brother-in-law and i were also able to bike to Howelson hill for mtn biking. The whole family went tubing right out the door (walked the trail to a put in spot about 300 yds away). The resort was even closer than the town for those hoping to do that. Spacious condo with a beautiful courtyard out back for relaxing in the sun. Thanks Chris!"

  • Wonderful spacious home

    "My family, brother, sisters in law, nieces and children/grandchildren were looking for a place, and this met and exceeded our expectations. Extra roomy, a spot for everything anyone wanted to do from readers to tv watchers to game players. Even a quiet area for the baby. The Kitchen was great with so much space all 7 cooks could be in there at the same time and still have space for the men to come in and not be in the way. The owners bent over backwards to allow us an early check in, recommendations on restaurants and outings. The only thing they couldn't control was the 0- temperatures for 4 days of our stay. To cold to ski, or go out much, but the house was big enough we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. Views of the mountains were great, and so convenient to the ski bus when we finally did get out of the house. A definite A + on this location"

Vail Valley Travel Tips

Vail Valley Vacation Rentals Are Not Just for Winter Vacations

Vail in Colorado is well known for its ski slopes and winter sports activities. The town was only established in 1966 and its prime purpose was to accommodate the needs of visitors to the Vail Ski Resort. It is built in a charming alpine style and surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. Vail Mountain is actually the second largest ski mountain in North America but even when the snow melts, it still has plenty to offer summer visitors.

Vail Valley Cabins Make Great Bases for Exploring the Area

Edwards was recently voted one of America's top 10 "dream towns" for its community atmosphere, great recreation, dining and shopping. It is just a few minutes from the Eagle County Airport and has some excellent upmarket shopping and dining at the Riverwalk. Close to Vail, the Beaver Creek Resort has many activities and restaurants, along with the mountain areas of Keystone and Breckenridge. East Vail is a gorgeous community set around a quaint marketplace and surrounded by the White River National Forest. West Vail has a variety of shops, restaurants and supermarkets, and is a popular place to spend time.
