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.

This house is beautiful! We’ve been renting houses in the mountains for years and this has been our absolute favorite! The views are stunning from the porch & the hot tub is a perfect touch after a long day of skiing. We will absolutely look for this house again in the future!

Great property! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

House is in great condition and has all amenities that we would want! Quick walk to the Vail bus route. Hot tub was an awesome touch after being out on the slopes all day.

The pull out mattress was actually a nice mattress. We ended up taking it out and put it on the floor of the master bedroom for a little extra privacy.

Nice cabin with a beautiful deck

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed the cabin, it was close to the mountain and the deck was great! It would be a nice place for a summer vacation.

Just a couple of issues 1.) for us one person had to sleep on the pull out couch outside the kitchen(not very private)Only 6 people can sleep privately as there are 2 queens in one room works great if you have small kids or one child/parents in the one room. ( all this is clearly stated on website we just thought the one pull out would be down stairs in a more private place)

2.) the water is soft and the tub is slippery to get in and out of, best to sit down and get in. Seems silly but everyone had an issue and we are not old people.

3.) There are a lot of locked cabinets not one cabinet specifically for food, so our groceries were kind of all over the counter. (we cooked everyday)

The upside to all this is there were spices etc. for us to use which is great because then we didn't have to buy any!

For the most part we all really enjoyed the cabin! Thanks for offering it on Home Away
