Property description

Vail -there is nothing like it on earth! Spend the day on the mountain, in the hotub, browsing the shops of Vail. Or, enjoy the wood burning fireplace; open the door and you'll hear the sounds of Gore Creek. My home is minutes away from everything. Park you car, walk inside, and enjoy your time in the Rockies.

When you stay at Ptarmigan #36 (affectionately known as 'BearPaw') consider it your 'home away from home'. Everything is there for you! This contemporary, but cozy, townhouse is conveniently located on the mountain side of the road and right on Gore Creek.

Here is what to expect: the kitchen has granite counter-tops, maple cabinets, and top-of-the-line appliances. The stove top is gas and the oven is electric! Grill on the outside grill - year around. There is a wood burning fireplace and flat screen TV in the sunken living area. This 40 townhouse complex has a hot-tub in the common area - it is always very clean and professionally managed and never crowded.

Sleeping accommodations are upstairs, with 2 bedrooms, a den and a loft - sleeps 4-6 comfortably (maximum capacity of 6). The master has a beautiful brass, king size bed. There is a flat screen TV for your viewing enjoyment. The second bedroom has a cherry, sleigh bed with a quality queen size mattress. This bedroom has a private, full size bathroom. It also has a flat screen TV. The den has 2- single twin beds; the den is open so it is not considered a private bedroom. A step ladder goes to the loft where there is extra sleeping room with 2 mattresses. Kids love this space.

I am a '(comfy) bed snob' - and, I'm told, the beds are 'oh so comfortable'!

Need something - the grocery stores (Safeway and City Market), liquor store, ski rental shops, restaurants are 3 minutes away via bus or car. Have a wonderful, relaxing time - make memories in Vail and at BearPaw.

The rates are lower for this unit due to owner management.

Please note the rates: Calculate the rate per night plus a 9.8% Vail tax. Add a $120 cleaning fee. This is the total rate.

No pets/No smoking.

Reservations can be paid for by checks, credit card, Pay Pal. Checks should be sent to: AA Vail @ 368 Taylor St. #F, Columbia, SC 29201. Questions please feel free to contact me.

My home is in a small townhome division in West Vail; it is on the south side of I-70. However, due to the Gore Creek and huge pine trees along side the Creek, there is little to none highway noise. The FREE Town of Vail bus is seconds away from my door step. Town of Vail Sales Account #4376

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Ptarmigan has been my 2nd home since 1998. I'm originally from Pittsburgh. I have a manager but still do all the bookings. My family, husband and 4 daughters - ages 21 through 29, grew up skiing, hiking, and loving the outdoors. We enjoy our home in the mountains but, also love to share it with others.

Why the Owner Chose West Vail, Vail, CO, USA:
West Vail was the perfect place for us. Close to everything but with the privacy and quiteness of a get-away. Plus, we love the amenities of the bus at our door step and hot tub - after a great day on the mountain. Can't beat the location - right on Gore Creek.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Gore Creek provides not only a scenic delight but also a listening joy and privelege - visible from every room in the down stairs and master bedroom.
