It's the perfect getaway for family and friends. It's private yet very close to all of the excitement that Vail has to offer.

We consider our guests liken family and hope to make their visit special in every way.

What makes this chalet unique

Peace and quiet and yet just a few minutes from the exciting village of Vail. Star gazing in our hot tub is something you will never forget. All of the amenities you need are here for a terrific and comfortable vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Better Than Ever!!!

I recently stayed at the Vail Ski Chalet for the third year in a row, and I must say, the owners did an excellent job with upgrades. First, the completely remodeled kitchen added all new appliances and granite, along with new cabinets. They even upgraded the washer and dryer room with new cabinets and new HE appliances. New this year as well was the 55 inch flat HD tv over the fireplace with surround sound! I still enjoyed the outside jacuzzi and upstairs master sauna steam shower, but loved the openness of the upgraded main floor. Looking forward to next year already!

Great property for a large group

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends had a great experience at this home. There were 3 total families and there was plenty of room for everyone. It had a great common area and we really enjoyed the fantastic updated kitchen. Further, Ralph was extremely responsive. There was a minor problem with the hot tub that Ralph helped us fix almost immediately.

There are only 2 minor negatives that I have with the property (note - neither of which stopped me from giving 5 stars). 1) The master bath is a little outdated (the rest of the bathrooms are updated and great). 2) The week we went it was very cold outside (-10 degrees in the morning). Because the living room has so many windows, the main floor often got very cold in the morning and in the evenings. It wasn't until we started a fire that the ground floor really warmed up.

Great first family ski trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. It really is in a great location. One block to the bus stop , 20 minutes to the slopes. The wood burning stove us a perfect start to the morning. Hard to beat a warm fire and hot coffee.

Only two hangups were, 1 the hot tub wasn't work when we first got there, but a phone call to the owner and he had it fixed within a couple hours. The only other thing I would say is be careful on the indoor stairs. They are a little bit slick. Especially the bottom couple steps. Most people from our group slipped there.

Meals were super easy. Very well prepared kitchen. Beds were super comfy. Plenty of room for 8 adults and 3 kids. Overall, we had a fantastic time and will most likely be returning to see the Yarusso Chalet again!! Highly recommended place for anyone headed to vail!

Comfy home for a month's stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I totally enjoyed this home! Very comfortable, open living area, great kitchen, big hot tub, etc. The fireplace is great to relax in front of after a day of skiing. The Gore Creek path is wonderful for dog walking - our dogs loved it (we did, too!). The bus is very convenient, which is great, as the parking adds up over a month's time! Ralph, the owner, is very responsive and sends along great links for the 'happenings' over at Vail Village, etc. We would rent this home again - definitely!

East Vail Home

  • 5 of 5

Christmas in Vail - accommodations worked out perfect for our 2 families, 2 kids each who shared a room. Also it was great having a main floor bed and bath especially since my sister in law had broken her ankle. Kitchen was great for all of us to gather around for holiday festivities. Played games by the fire and enjoyed the large dining table. Walk to the shuttle was not bad - snow was fantastic for this time of year. Thanks for allowing us to share your home.

Best place to reconnect with friends and loved ones

  • 5 of 5

This place is by far the best place I've stayed in Vail. The moment you walk in you know you're "home". From the breath taking views, to the hot-tub, to the updated kitchen/bathrooms, to huge windows, this place has everything to offer. We've stayed here a few times and it's the perfect place to reconnect with friends and family. Everything is right at your figure tips... just walk to the bus and...snap you're in Vail Village. After a long day of skiing there's nothing like the hot tub and a wood burning fireplace. Also, if you have people that like the night life in Vail, it's great - you can just jump on the bus and no need to worry about driving. I would highly recommend this home to anyone.

opposite experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are surprised at the review written below. We had the complete opposite experience at the 47322 rental and I believe we were there the week before the renters below. This was our second stay at this rental. Our first stay was 17 years ago on our wedding honeymoon. We thought it would be a fun experience to bring our kids back with us years later. To our surprise there were many improvements done to the house. A completely new kitchen that was beautiful, all the bathrooms seems to be redone as well. Coming from New Jersey it was a huge pleasure to have the windows open with NO screens allowing fresh air to flow through the house. There were no bugs so having the windows open was a rare but joyful experience for us. Wife and I stayed in the master bedroom and showered without ever fearing of neighbors being able to look in. The hot tub on the back deck was new and was fun for the whole family. We did not find the house dirty at all. All bedrooms and bathroom were neat. Overall we had a great experience and wonderful family vacation. We look forward to returning and our only hopes are not to wait as long to boo with this rental again.
