Guestbook comments from the owner

Willow Creek Cabin is right on Gore Creek, which makes a relaxing sound as it flows over rocks next to the deck. You can fish right there. This is a great asset to the house. The views of the brilliant yellow aspens on the mountainside were fabulous - we were lucky to be there during peak fall color.

This house is beautifully decorated, with huge amounts of storage and all of the conveniences. The kitchen is well equipped with an upscale stove. The bedrooms are large. Skiers would appreciate the big open tiled entryway - perfect for snow gear and equipment, and wet boots and coats. There is a large wall mounted flat screen TV, and a lot of media options. A huge dining area overlooks the creek, with nice views. Everything is as nice, if not better, than pictured on the websites.


The deck, on the creek, is huge. It has lots of seating and a nice big hot tub. The yard is full of perennials - lots and lots of flowers - and some nice clusters of aspen trees and evergreens.


All three bedrooms were good sized and had queen sized beds - four such beds in all. Two bedrooms are on the lower level. One of those is huge, with two beds. The master bathroom was quite large with a king-sized bed and very nice. There were nice linens and plenty of extra pillows and blankets.

Frequent and FREE local bus service is maybe a half block away. This bus can take you anywhere in the Vail area easily. Large grocery stores are a mile or two away.

Everything was great. The only downside is you can hear some car noise since it is close to the road/highway, but otherwise a perfect setting.

HEAVENLY!!! Did not want to leave! Could not have been closer to Gore Creek without being in it!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been eyeing this property for at least 7 years. I wanted a place as close to Gore Creek as possible and this did NOT DISAPPOINT!!! We had an all girls cousin and Aunt trip. It was PERFECT! The property is updated and immaculate! The deck is as big as the cabin! I could have spent all my time on the deck just looking and listening to the creek roar by. Very quiet neighborhood. Could have fished, saw a handful of Fly Fishman in the creek and on the banks of the "Gold Medal Waters". We are all great cooks and cooked 4 out of 6 nights. We had everything we needed to cook our gourmet meals in this very nice kitchen. The pictures on the website don't do it justice. There is a nice sitting room with pullout couch and DR on the backside that is all glass, looking at the mountain and the deck. The kitchen is all open looking into this room and out on to the deck. The front room is very comfortable and cozy with a wood burning fireplace. The furniture is very nice. There were 6 of us and a King bed in the upstairs Master and 3 queen beds in 2 bedrooms downstairs. All the bedrooms were very large with dressers and televisions. Could have comfortably slept 8 adults in beds. The sitting room couch pulled out to a bed, but didn't use, not sure about the front room couch. I slept like a baby on the sitting room couch. No AC, but didn't need it. All the windows open up, there are ceiling fans in all the rooms, and there are multiple box fans if needed. There are 2 full bathrooms and 6 women managed just fine for 7 days. Full laundry downstairs. Nice, large, clean hot tub. Beautifully manicured yard. Gas grill, but we did not use. Says parking only for 2 cars, but could have parked 3 cars no problem. The neighbor has lived in Vail for 40 years and is very friendly, knowlegable, and helpful. FREE bus shuttle around Vail stops just down the road, 10 min walk. Runs 18 hours a day, about every 30 min. About a 15 min trip into town because the bus stops alot. Takes about 5 min to drive into Vail Village or Lionshead and park free in public garages during the summer. Safeway and City Market were 3 min away and had everything we needed. Great Farmers Market and Crafts Fair on Sundays 10-3 in Vail on Meadows Drive, but very crowded. Beautiful walks along Gore Creek all the way to East Vail (this property is in West Vail). If you plan on having dinner in any of the many popular restaurants, make reservations weeks ahead! HEAVEN

perfect for our family double birthday celebration!!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a perfect spot, right on the creek, huge deck and hot tub (when we had a minor glitch with the hot tub, we called the owner and it was fixed early the next day). The kitchen and bedrooms were spot on and he house was very well equipped: comfortable furniture, and great cable and wifi.

Spacious and cozy cabin by the creek

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in this cabin with the family (grand parents included). Spacious enough so we were never on top of each other... HUGE deck, full of natural light and ideally located.... we loved all the little attention provided. Can't wait to come back!!!

Fun Family Vacay

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has an awesome deck with plenty of seating to enjoy the creek. The hot tub was clean and easily accessible. Plenty of towels and bedding. The layout of the cabin was nice and easily accommodated our large family. It slept 10 people when using both couches. The pull-out couch has seen better days and we ended up not using it. Kitchen was well stocked with all appliances and utensils that we needed~ except for trash bags, paper towels and toilet paper. A few kinks: When we arrived on a Friday, both trash can and recycle were overflowing. It made it difficult for our group of 10, as trash pick-up is on Tues. Parking was limited to 2 vehicles (which I only became aware of the day before we left), but the nice neighbor let us use part of her driveway because we had three cars. Overall, we had a great time together in a relaxing setting with beautiful surroundings! Wild flowers were amazing as was just sitting on the deck enjoying Gore Creek.
