A top value In Vail, and one of the very nicest updated Ptarmigan units.
You will love this exceptional townhouse only minutes from the vibrancy of the downtown village area. The secluded location in a great neighborhood assures it will be quiet and relaxing when you arrive at your "home away." Delight in the space and luxury of a very nicely appointed home for less than the price of a single slope side hotel room.
Take a moment, and take in the spectacular views of Gore Creek from the large living room windows. In spring, summer, fall, and warmer winter days you can relax on comfortable patio furniture, perfect for your morning coffee or evening cocktail. The gas grill on the deck is great for barbeques all year.
Both bedrooms are on the upper level, each with premium king size beds. A cozy sitting area between the two bedrooms has a full pull out bed. The low ceiling loft "fortress," furnished with a comfortable queen mattress, is recommended for children. Here they will find books, games, and a small video TV with a selection of movie classics. Up to 6 people, a maximum of 4 adults, will find very pleasant accommodations.
Johnson Ski House is thoughtfully furnished with all amenities you expect: quality contemporary furniture, 3 new large flat screen TVs (in the living area and in each bedroom), a Blue-Ray/DVD player, private high speed Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and luxurious linens. This season's upgrades include new extra plush carpet in the living and sleeping areas, and premium LG washer and steam function dryer in the laundry/utility room. Easily prepare snacks and meals in an attractive, fully equipped kitchen featuring new top quality stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. An ecological, easy switch on gas log fireplace provides instant warmth and ambiance on frosty mornings and evenings at home as you savor your Vail hideaway.
The nicely landscaped Ptarmigan grounds include a well maintained, heated outdoor summer season swimming pool with new upscale loungers, tables, umbrellas, and chairs. Ptarmigan's shared year round indoor hot tub is available for a relaxing soak after your day on the mountain - or after exploring the many tempting shops, galleries, and boutiques of Vail and Beaver Creek.
Two free parking spaces are located just out your front door. Literally steps away is the free bus stop where you can catch short rides into the heart of Lionshead and Vail Village multiple times each day and on into late night. Approximately 3 minutes away in West Vail are grocery and liquor stores, sporting goods, gourmet coffee options, fast food, popular bars, restaurants, and more.
Legendary winter skiing is a given, but do not overlook the wonders of summer and fall in Vail. Choose Johnson Ski House and enjoy concerts, art, music and dance festivals, farmers' markets, golf, tennis, fly fishing, horseback riding, sublime restaurants, fascinating and eclectic shops, biking, hiking, rafting, scenic gondola rides, zip lining, alpine roller coaster, scenic drives, and more. Gore Valley Bike/Recreation Path is accessible right next to the Ptarmigan complex. The scenic path shadows the river to nearby Donovan Park, or you can venture only a bit farther into Lionshead and Vail - or for miles and miles in either direction. Vail has an abundance of gorgeous hiking trails to experience beautiful summer wildflowers, breathtaking vistas, and splendid autumn colors.
In winter, the unparalleled Vail ski slopes are moments away. Other snowy activites include ice skating at a choice of several dazzling indoor and outdoor venues, snow mobile tours, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding, and horse drawn sleigh rides. Johnson Ski House is the perfect base camp for all of this, or for simply snuggling by the fire and enjoying board game night or a movie on the large living room TV.
