We moved to Vail from Chicago sixteen years ago to create the dream we had of living in the mountains. Steve left his position as an engineer at Fermilab and came to Vail to open a granite shop. He later became the General Manager of a Five Star hotel in Vail Village. I am a psychotherapist and still travel every other week to Illinois for my practice. We have renovated a number of properties over the years, dreaming of the day we would find the place we would call home! This is it! Sharing our home with our guests is a dream come true!

STEVE AND THERESA BJERKIE purchased this house in 2012


The views are breathtaking! You can walk right out the front door to fish, hike, snowshoe, and if you are an expert back county skier you can even ski right down to our street!

What makes this house unique

Right on the free Vail bus that takes you to the slopes, restaurants, and shopping

5/6BR/4BA home in East Vail. Breathtaking views, beautiful living spaces and super comfy bdrms!

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Theresa's property is a beautiful home located in East Vail, just 5-10 min away from the free bus stop. Located in a cul de sac on the mountains where you have 360 degrees of gorgeous mountain views (no neighbors within sight!). The house has 5 bedrooms, 4 with a queen bed and 1 with two single beds. There is an additional studio with a sofa bed, that can comfortably fit 1-2 persons. The bedrooms are very comfortable, and each is decorated charmingly with a touch of Steve and Theresa's life, each has their own heat control, with the exception of the two bedrooms in the bottom floor, which helps everybody being comfortable. The living space is huge and very open, and wait until you see the views!!! they have big windows 360 degrees, and the only think you can see is the mountain and its trees. The living room also has a 65' flat screen smart TV, and a cozy fireplace to gather around with your family of friends. Dinning room has a big table with 8 chairs, but there are additional stack chairs in the kitchen if your party is larger, the dinning table is big enough to hold 12 people. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need from breakfast to a nice dinner. In the cupboards you can find pans, pots, tools, spices, condiments etc. The property has a small patio, with a Jacuzzi for aprox 6 people that is great for kicking back and relaxing after a good day in the slopes. Theresa and Steve are also the greatest host!, they are very accommodating and responsive in case you have any questions or need help with anything around the house. They have been adding little details here and there based on their own experiences as travelers, which will make your stay as comfortable as it can be, for example, upon arrival, they leave out for you a basket FULL of snacks to take into the mountain (protein bars, cookies, chocolate, m&m's, etc), all bathrooms have shampoo, conditioner and shower wash, and there is a tiny basket in the BA with tiny bottles of personal hygiene stuff you may need. In summary, staying at Steve and Theresa's house was a very nice experience, we will definitely be coming back the following season!!!

Owners are lovely, but the property is not as advertised

  • 2 of 5

I truly value reviews when I am looking to purchase anything, but especially when renting a vacation property. We were a group of 9 staying at the property Feb 18-26, 2017. So, let's start with the pros: Steve and Theresa are lovely and very quick to respond to questions. They were kind enough to allow us to access the house by 1pm the day of arrival and depart at 11am the day of departure. The views are spectacular! The master bedroom suite on the top floor, the kitchen and dining area have been renovated very nicely. The cons: there is no way the house can sleep 12 people (not enough beds), all of the bedrooms (except the master) need renovating as does the living room area, carpets are used to cover up missing floor tiles on every floor, bottom floor bathroom and laundry area smell of mildew, hot tub does not stay hot for longer than 10-15 minutes and can only accomodate 4-6 people (totally disappointing when you are on a ski trip), the grill does not work, some of the steps in the house are wobbly, distance to Vail shuttle is a very long walk, no blinds or curtains (only an issue because if you are in the hot tub you have a clear view of anyone using 2 of the bathrooms---and we were told that the neighbors sometimes use the hot tub). I could go on, but you get my point. The house is not quite as nice as advertised. In their defense, this is the owners primary home and they are clearly in the process of renovating it. We've stayed in many properties in Vail and other ski areas. This was the most disappointing. If the owners renovate the rest of the house in the same manner that they renovated the master suite, it will be a lovely home.

Owner's Response: We regret you were disappointed with your stay in February. We want all of our guests to have a wonderful experience in Vail! Our home does in fact sleep twelve people. The master bedroom has a king bed, four other bedrooms each have a queen bed, and one bedroom has two twin beds. The sixth bedroom, used as an office, can be set up with a queen bed. We offered this to you and you declined stating you had a party of only nine. All of the bedrooms have been completely remodeled including high end carpet, new window and door trim, new closets, mattresses, linens and bedding. We assume you were referring to the three bathrooms when you stated the bedrooms needed remodeling. The master bath has been completely remodel, but the other three have not, however, they are very clean and functional. We have a Dakota hot tub which accommodates six people at a time. We are having the hot tub serviced and checked to make sure it is working properly. The hot tub is our private property and our guests have sole use of the hot tub during their stay. We cover and store the grill away for the winter season. We receive an average of 365 inches of snowfall each winter on our newly remodeled deck. Because of all the snow we want to protect our new patio furniture and grill. The grill is available upon request weather permitting. Our home is three tenths of a mile to the free shuttle bus. This is not unusual since the bus cannot stop in front of every house. If you stay a week or more, we offer a free locker for your ski gear conveniently located in Vail Village or free parking in Vail Village. In your case, we actually gave you both so you never had to use the shuttle at all. The staircase and the first floor tile are to be replaced this season. Two of the bathrooms were designed with windows in the showers to enhance the incredible mountain views. Our home is surrounded by mountains and forest. The living room and dining room are one large room and the entire space has been completely remodeled. We love our home and will continue to make it an even more spectacular vacation spot.

Fantastic Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Owners were exceptional, very attentive and welcoming. We stayed for a week during the summer and the views are the best in East Vail!!. The home was perfect for our family of 5 plus the kid's friends that vacationed with us. Plenty of bedrooms and baths. The home is very well maintained and clean! To top it off there was a tray of cheese and wine waiting for us! They are in the process of updating it too. We stayed very busy during the week and thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the back deck. We are looking forward to vacationing here again!

Great views, great location

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for groups, we all had our own bathroom, nice fireplace. Had a little trouble keeping the hot tub hot, and overall a bit outdated. Otherwise, we'd rent here again - pros outweigh the cons.

Great Place in Vail Valley

  • 5 of 5

Owners were super nice. Great place short walk from bus line (though the bus ride is a bit long from this location). We had 8 people and felt there was plenty of living space. Beautiful views from the large picture windows.
