Imagine fly fishing right out your back door! The slopes of Arrowhead can be seen while enjoying the view from your huge deck. Beaver Creek is within five minutes, Vail 15 minutes,and Arrowhead 3 minutes. You will need a car.

You will want to sleep with the doors open at night to hear the river in the summertime. Summer visitors will find yourselves at the heart of biking trails and close to Beaver Creek and Vail's many summertime festivals and events. The lovely town of Edwards is within 5 minutes and has many restaurants and upscale shopping.

Our smoke-free home was built in 2000 and includes two gas fireplaces, new carpet in all the bedrooms and lower level. Hard wood floors line the entire main level.

There is an additional partial kitchen on the lower level with sink, cabinets and kitchen table. The pool table and hot tub will entertain everyone after a tough day on the slopes, bike path or river!

Perfect setting for family reunions, weddings, scrapbooking parties, and ski get-aways! The Avon rec center is nearby which includes an indoor pool and workout facility!

About Kathy Humphrey, Homeowner

Our family loves to spend time in the Vail Valley every season of the year. Initially the winter skiing was the huge draw. Now we have learned to love all 4 seasons. Summertime fly fishing and biking are family favorites along with shopping and dining out. Art festivals and farmers markets scatter the valley all year long. We have traveled throughout the US and always love returning to Colorado. My husband grew up in southern Minnesota and I grew up in northern Ohio in a small town called Vermilion, right on Lake Erie. Our midwestern roots make us all the more appreciative of the moderate Colorado weather.

Kathy Humphrey, Homeowner purchased this house in 2005

Why Kathy Humphrey, Homeowner chose Northwest

We love the town of Edwards. There is so much to offer,world class skiing, golfing and world class shopping and dining! What more could one ask for? The Eagle River allows for kayaking and white water rafting and fly fishing, not to mention the sound of the river that lulls you to sleep in the spring and summertime.

What makes this house unique

We love the river of course and we also love the layout of our home. We have 2 separate living areas on 2 different levels. This is ideal for groups with teenagers that want to play pool or ping pong on the lower level while the adults can entertain on the main level. All our bedrooms have their own baths along with 2 extra half baths! This is key in maintaining some privacy amongst large family/friends gatherings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was great! It was one of the most comfortable houses we have stayed and have been doing this group for years. We had kids from a college junior to two kindergartners so the mix and spread of living areas was very advantageous for us.

We had the master room and the weather was so nice we were even able to enjoy the river. The little ones like your path and after skiing wanted to go down and skip rocks.

This house is beautiful, located in a wonderful part of Colorado

Being on the river was fantastic

The space was perfect for accommodating 3 families with children comfortably

The neighborhood had smaller options and several other families were able to book in the same neighborhood

Kitchen was well appointed - stocked much better than many other rentals on this site

The owner was kind and polite in advance of our stay answering questions to help

The kids loved the small park just a few doors down, there were a lot of other kids in the neighborhood and they had a great time playing

Convenient access to bike/walking trails and a large park


We left the house in as good or better shape than when we found it - discarded a few expired items from the refrigerator and pantry that we ran across. We left sodas, non-perishable items, and some fishing poles we purchased with the owners permission. During our stay, one of the bicycles malfunctioned and had the adult riding with her 9 year old not been an experienced rider it could have resulted in an injury. We notified the owner about the bike the day it happened. She didn't request we take the bike to be repaired, but later deducted $ from our security deposit. My issue isn't with the money it is with the fact that the bike malfunctioned during a normal ride with a mother and her daughter and I don't agree with a deduction. We took great care with the items on the property and there were no other issues noted upon check out. I was very put off by the way the owner handled it. The owner's response was the damage happened when we were in the rental so therefore it was our responsibility. She also stated we should have gotten it repaired before we checked out which wasn't the instruction on the phone when I called to notify her what happened. I believe that we should have been given the benefit of the doubt and even offered to split the cost of the repair. The owner requested time to think about it and let me know. I never received any follow up from her, but rather a check in the mail with the deduction taken out. When you rent a car, if you wreck it you would be held liable and that makes sense. If the car has a flat tire or malfunctions the rental agency would take care of it. I believe this should have, and could have, been handled differently. I am just grateful that it was a bicycle that was in need of maintenance that broke while we were the renters and not something bigger.

Owner's Response: I state in our agreement that there are 9 mountain bikes for our guests' use. I also state, "please leave in working order." This bike had to have the rear wheel replaced since it was bent. I deducted $70 from guest's security deposit (which was our charge from bike repair shop.) Seems straight forward to me.

Big Home - Big Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family converged on this home from 5 cities in 3 states. The 5 bedrooms accommodated us perfectly. The sound of the Eagle River flowing can be heard all night long, but the well insulated windows and doors can silence any outside noise. The steps to the river give you easy access for recreation and relaxation. Minutes from the ski resorts of Beaver Creek, Vail, Arrowhead and even the grocery store.

I would highly recommend this VRBO to anyone seeking mountain adventure, skiing or just relaxing and enjoying each others company.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Went up with another family to celebrate birthdays as a long weekend getaway, had a great time, spacious, all the comforts of home, enjoyed the hot tub & hearing the river was very relaxing. Great central locale, took the kids fishing, riding bikes, played at the neighborhood park, everyone came back saying they would go again, I would recommend this place without hesitation. The best hidden secret are the trails that allow you to walk from the home to the shopping center crossing the river on a pedestrian bridge, makes for a nice walk, enjoying the outdoors to go fetch breakfast/coffee!

My husband I spent four wonderful days in this lovely home. I cannot fully express how picturesque the setting is right on the river surrounded by aspens in a quiet neighborhood. We could not have been more pleased with the house and it numerous amenities. Even though the house is large (perfect for several couples or a family reunion), our party of two felt cozy and right at home. Kathy was just amazing to work with. She was always prompt, gracious and accommodating with our needs and questions. We can’t wait to return.

Pictures DONNOT do justice!! BEA-U-TIFUL!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous house for a weekend in September with members of our family from all over the nation. Everyone absolutely loved it!! There was space to get away but also space to come together enjoy! The hot tub was FABULOUS in the morning and evening, next to the river it was SO peaceful. The pictures of the various rooms and the space that this house has does not truly do it justice. The house was huge! It is very private at the end of the drive and they have things in the house for you to use. They had some coffee stuff there, they had nice heavy robes that you could use, there were bike's in the garage. We had 3 vehicles and there was plenty of room! 1 Car can fit in the garage and you could probably fit another 3 vehicles out front is needed! My husband went out every morning and did some fly fishing out the back porch and caught a couple fish. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation. One downfall is if you have a handicap person there are no bed rooms on the main floor. You have to either go up stairs or down stairs to get to a bed!

Incredible House for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at this house with our 4 adult children and their spouses. I think we used almost everything: Had a pool and ping pong tournament, cooking contest in the well stocked kitchen, hot tub relaxing in the evening, used the hammock, and sat having coffee at the seating area right by the stream. We hiked near by, walked into Edwards (20 minute walk on a nice path), kayaked at Dillon Reservoir (maybe an hour drive). The house is beautiful and spacious! I especially appreciated working with Kathy. She was very accommodating and responded promptly to questions we had. She made us feel very at home and relaxed about the property. All my family had a great time and appreciated the house and environs so much. I would highly recommend this house for large families or family reunions. Thank you, Kathy!
