About Andy or Meg Forstl 970-376-8245

I moved to Vail shortly after graduating from Colorado State University in 1991 and have lived here on and off ever since. My wife, two children and I have called West Vail our year round home for the past 10 years and love to ski, mountain bike and hike right outside our front door. We all love living in the mountains and are here to help you book your vacation as only a true local can. Thank you Meg & Andy Forstl

What makes this chalet unique

Bus is 200 feet from home and plenty of parking make this an easy pick for Vail!! This is not a crowded condo complex, this is a very peacful private neighborhood.

Ideal corporate or family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Not sure what more you could want in a Vail retreat. We rented out both sides which was great as one side was a little louder than the other. Perfect picks for furnishings, stocked well for groups of 10-15, rustic, sturdy, and really nice. Andy was a great host as well. I will be back many times with the company, family, and friends.

Wedding VRBO

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got married in Vail and used Andy and Meg's duplex for a his and her's side. All the bridesmaids stayed on one side and all the groomsman stayed on the other. We couldn't have asked for a better VRBO experience. Andy was always reachable right away whenever any issues arose. We ran out of space in our dumpster, so Andy let us use his personal one. The hot tubs stopped working and Andy came right over and got them fixed. We needed an ironing board and Meg gave us their personal one. It was such a wonderful experience and Andy and Meg were wonderful hosts. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks!

Great property, great owners

  • 5 of 5

Meg and Andy's property was wonderful for a wedding party--the property is clean and spacious, the decks, grills, and hot tubs were great, and the location is wildly convenient. Best of all, though, was their responsiveness--when we had a question about how the gas for the grill turned on, and when we couldn't find an ironing board the morning of the wedding, Meg was immediately reachable by phone and walked over with an ironing board within five minutes. Thanks so much.

Great location and property for our family gathering

  • 4 of 5

We chose Vail, CO as a location for a family gathering of 8 couples. The adjoining duplexes were very convenient for such a large group, The bus line was close, allowing easy access throughout Vail. Although the properties had 4 bedrooms on each side, the loft area was not easily accessible as we were not excepting a ladder to be the only access point to the loft. The bed in one of the lofts needed to be replaced as it sagged in the middle. Some of the pillows needed to be replaced as they were not very supportive,. The property was well furnished and clean. The kitchen was fully stocked. The property owners, Andy and Meg, were very attentive and responsive. The washer in one of the units was broken, so everyone had to use the working washer in the other unit. The parking was adequate as we had 6 cars parked in the driveway most of the time. The hot tubs were great and very relaxing at the end of a day hiking and sight seeing. We would stay again and recommend this location to anyone looking for a nice, clean, well-furnished location in Vail.

Quiet location, great property.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Larkspur for our daughter's wedding. Had several family members staying and there was room for everyone. The house is very comfortable and accommodating. Andy and Meg were very hospitable and went out of their way to make our stay a good one. Would stay again.
