Our home is located at the western end of East Vail on the free Town of Vail bus route with easy freeway and frontage road access. East Vail’s only market is just a short walk from the house. Gore Creek and the Vail bike path are directly across the street. Walk to many different trailheads. There’s ample parking for two cars+.

The Pitkin Creek Bus Stop is about 200 yards from our front door. The East Vail overflow parking lot is adjacent to our neighborhood at the East Vail I 70 exit. The Bus runs every 15 minutes during peak season hours. It is very easy to catch the bus and we rarely use our car once we arrive at our house.
This is the home you will want to come back to year after year..

About Richard Grodahl -
The house is co-owned by the Grodahl and Vogel families.The Grodahl's live in Orange County, CA. We attended CU Boulder and developed a love of the Rockies that we have passed down to our children. Katie Vogel, and her husband Brian, also have strong ties to Colorado. Katie is a CU grad and Brian grew up in Evergreen. He graduated from Notre Dame, but we don't hold it against him. The Vogels and their children live in the Denver Area. We have a long history of vacationing together. Co-owning a mountain home has been a rewarding family experience. Our children especially enjoy spending time together in Vail. Our familes love to ski, hike, and bike. Vail is the perfect mountain destination! World class skiing and a terrific village setting make Vail our home away from home.
Richard Grodahl - purchased this House in 2011
Why Richard Grodahl - chose Vail
We wanted a home in a great location with plenty of room for family and friends. The four of us spent a year visiting different mountain towns throughout Colorado and Utah. Vail quickly rose to the top of the list. After staying in many locations throughout Vail, we found East Vail to be the best for many reasons. Easy freeway and frontage road access, convenient Town to Vail bus access, nearby grocery store, Gore Creek and trail access are just a few of the features which make Bighorn Lodge a great choice for vacationing.
What makes this House unique
Run, bike, or cross-country ski along beautiful Gore Creek. Grab your fly rod and cast a few in nearby Gore Creek. Catch the free TOV bus for a short ride into Vail Village or Lionshead. Relax and enjoy this comfortable, peaceful, and beautiful family home.

Wonderful home! We will definitely be back!
We absolutely loved our stay over spring break at this home! The house had everything you could possibly need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Right off the bus route (which we didn’t end up using) and walking distance to the market for any last minute items you may have forgotten. Definitely take a look at what is in the pantry/fridge before you go shopping. The honor pantry had all the staples like seasonings/etc we had already bought. Take a little and leave a little. The kids loved the hot tub and being able to jump out of the hot tub into the snow and back. Lol. Kitchen is fully stocked. There wasn’t anything we needed for cooking that it didn’t have. Even had a crock pot. Great for throwing in something to cook while you’re out skiing for the day. Lots of board games and puzzles to keep the family entertained. We did four of the puzzles! Heated floors in the kitchen and bath were great. Beds and bedding were comfortable. Slept like we were at home. Can’t say enough about this place. You won’t be disappointed! Hope to be back in the future!
I loved this mountain home! Really great location
This Vail lodge was excellent for the purpose of skiing and staying close to Vail affordably. The home is very well stocked with all the amenities of home, especially in the kitchen and plenty of rooms to for guests and kids. The hot tub and beds are clean well cared for. Great place to bring the family, right on the bus rout into town. I completely enjoyed myself and would return again.
Best place I have ever stayed
Clean, convenient outstanding. We will stay every year if possible
Lovely, convenient private home in East Vail
Our party of 10 had a wonderful stay at this lovely home in East Vail over Christmas break. The house is very conveniently located off of the highway, which we appreciated because we were skiing in Breck, not Vail. There was plenty of room for all of us (two families of 5) and we appreciated having the garage to store our skiing gear during the stay. We made use of the hot tub and the heated kitchen floor...so nice! Thanks for sharing your wonderful home!
Another fantastic stay!
This was the second year in a row we chose this home in East Vail for our annual guys ski trip. It slept 9 comfortably and we selected it due to: it's location to the shuttle stop, hot tub, good layout and decor, plenty of parking and overall great experience with the owners. It really was an easy experience working with them and they work hard to make sure all is in line before you leave. They were even immediately responsive when we had a question during our stay. We had a vehicle with a dead battery and even found a set of jumper cables to borrow in the garage. We had a great time on our trip to Vail.
East Vail's ONLY Destination!
I had the absolute pleasure of spending New Year's 2017 for a family week at the Bighorn Lodge. It couldn't have been a more perfect house for an adventurous ski family who likes to entertain and enjoy a nice hot tub after a day on the slopes. The bus is just 200 feet from the house's front door which comes every 15 minutes. You can get to Vail Village in no time! It is a flat walk out the driveway and even an easy trek in ski boots - a rare treat in such a large area.
The living room was our family's favorite place to relax, watch movies, play games and celebrate the New Year. We had everything we needed in the kitchen as well as our rooms. There are 3 1/2 baths so you never feel crammed and the top 2 bedrooms are nestled away for plenty of privacy. The downstairs is a perfect room for a group of kids (or cousins!) to sleep.
This spot is the perfect house for groups of all kinds. I promise you won't be disappointed!
Rafting is immediately across the street from our house. Pitkin Creek meets Gore Creek at the end of our driveway. There are endless opportunities for outdoor activities right outside our front door. Skiing - 200 steps from our front door is the FREE bus directly into the center of Vail. Once we arrive at our house, a car is rarely needed. Vail village is wonderful- lots to do!
