No matter the season, this quiet, secluded location with trees, mountain views, and the sound of Gore Creek, located only 20 feet off the back deck, will fit the bill for your next vacation. You can ski any of eleven Colorado resorts (Vail, Beaver Creek, Copper, Breckenridge, Keystone, A-Basin, Steamboat Springs, Aspen's three mountains, and Ski Cooper) and still drive home for the night to a cozy fire and comfortable king-size beds.
This is a property with only 38 townhomes, many of which are lived in by permanent residents. The covered bus stop for the free Town of Vail Shuttle is only a two-minute level walk from the front door. A three-minute ride gets you to the Cascade ski lift; ride a little longer and get off at Lionshead or the Vail Transportation Center and Vail Village itself, offering numerous quality restaurants, night spots, and incomparable shopping.
If you choose, however, to stay in, you will also be content. This newly remodeled unit boasts a kitchen with granite counter tops, rustic cherry cabinetry, and new appliances. It is furnished down to the wine glasses! The glass-topped dining room table seats six, but there is also a second table in the sunken den which seats four. Turn the gas fireplace on to take the chill off of an early morning or to quickly warm up the home and mood after a day of outside activity. The spacious upstairs front bedroom and creek-side bedroom boast comfortable king-size beds and flat-screen TVs and the middle bedroom has a queen-size bed with TV/VCR/DVD player. The unit has a ladder to the loft above the stairs. It has a queen mattress and desk lamp on a bench. Finally, the den couch is a sleeper sofa which adds to your sleeping options.
In the winter, walk or take the free shuttle to the Safeway or City Market; other seasons, you may choose to bicycle. We are within a couple of minutes from the Vail Recreation Trail, a fun path where walkers, runners, and bikers can enjoy a jaunt into Vail along beautiful Gore Creek or perhaps a ride all the way to Avon or Breckenridge. The summer outdoor pool and year-round enclosed hottub are a one minute walk across the parking lot from the front door.
Rates are lower for this unit due to owner management. Owner management is visible throughout the unit in a friendly, cozy environment, rather than a sterile cut-out cookie. Art work, mirrors, and bathrooms with intricate tile work all point to ownership who also enjoy their visits here!
Free highspeed wireless and ethernet connection, HDTV and Flatscreen TVs
NO PET, NO SMOKING IN THE UNIT.

Why the Owner Chose West Vail, Vail, CO, USA:
I have loved the Rockies since I went to school in Colorado. A roommate's parents lived in Vail so I skied there and other ski areas as a cadet. I have skied all over the country and in Europe and have found Vail to be, in my opinion, the finest ski resort . Signe and I loved the charm of the village and surrounding area when we visited Vail together. Finally, we thought it would be a place where our children would always look forward to vacationing with us, no matter the season of the year. It has been true. We have purchased the next-door Unit 16 vrbo 499342 for our future retirement home. We are also renting unit 16.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
If you are looking for accomodations for up to 15 people, we also own and rent Unit 16 vrbo 499342 Our townhomes' position on Gore Creek is one of the most charming benefits of this property. The backs of the units have stunning views of the creek. The view and sound of the creek change with every season. The gas fireplace in 15 makes having a fire at any time, effortless, safe and pleasurable. The Unit 16 fireplace is traditional woodburning. The units are comfortable, quiet and very well appointed, requiring little more than your own foodstuffs. Finally, location is an asset. Vail's free shuttle stops 125 level paces from the front door. It is a three-minute ride to the closest ski lift and a 10 minute walk, if you choose, to the Safeway and City Market grocery stores, among other businesses (hardware, gas, fast-food, restaurants, wine/liquor, etc.). The beautiful Vail Rec path close to Gore Creek is just a three-to-four minute walk away!
