Bedrooms 3
Space 2,000 sq ft
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Located in the Heart of the East Vail Valley, this townhome directly overlooks Gore Creek and is completely surrounded by mountains and tall evergreen trees. There is no need to drive once you arrive; the free town shuttle picks up directly behind our townhouse.

Within a short walk of hiking trails, waterfalls, and only five miles or short shuttle ride from the ski slopes. Cross country skiing rentals are available in the club. The Club just completed a three-million-dollar renovation and features a new health and fitness club, heated outdoor olympic-size pool and hot tub, as well as brand new restaurant (Blu's Restaurant). The town of Vail has completed a billion dollar 'facelift' and is now an even more remarkable destination.

This is truly a magnificent atmosphere in either summer or winter. $40k interior update (2011) and $60k update with all new windows and doors (2014). Both master bedrooms feature huge windows on two and four walls respectively. This home is not in a rental pool and is impeccably furnished for use primarily as our second home. Many of our guests return each year--this is a luxury destination in every sense.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! This exceeded our expectations! Gorgeous wood burning fireplace, fresh updates, very "Ralph Lauren" feel. Comfy beds, and lots of room. Loved that the free shuttle picked up every 15 min right behind the town home. Spectacular views. Nice and quiet which is hard to find in Vail. We didn't want to leave! Will hopefully be back yet this season.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the condo. The condo was very clean and everything was in working condition. The bedrooms were all spacious but the living area was a little small for 6 adults. The free bus was right behind the house and was very convenient. I would definitely stay here again! Also, Lyn was very timely with any answers to our questions.

Property was ok- decent price compared to other rentals at that time.

  • 3 of 5

The place could use some TLC. The shower heads are bad, doors don’t shut well, one faucet sprays all over, electricity in one bathroom doesn’t work, dishwasher spotty, dish ware cracked, poor lighting throughout, etc. Basics are there though and the owners were in contact, although not local so they couldn’t do much quickly, but were as responsive as they could be.

Amazing time in Vail!!!

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was very clean and well set up for a perfect vacation! The location is perfect, with the creek and waterfall right by the townhouse, it sounded amazing every day especially at night with windows open! Very close to Vail village and Lionshead village! Just a perfect family vacation townhouse! Owner Lyn is very nice to speak with, always answered the phone and gave us great recommendations for what to do with the family while in town!!!! Definitely coming back 😁

A Solid Option for East Vail Lodging

  • 4 of 5

This condo works great for families or groups of friends: 2 master bedrooms, a single bed in a loft off the top floor master, a bunk room with double bottom bunk/single top bunk and full bath in the hallway. The living room has a sleeper couch.

The living room and kitchen area is cozy but is very functional. The kitchen is well-stocked with cookware. Parking (uncovered) is limited and is first-come-first served. The condo is in great shape and very clean.

The condo is the first unit when you enter the Vail Raquet Club driveway, and you can see I-70 from the top floor windows, but noise wasn't a problem at all. Make sure your fire-making skills are strong, the condo does get drafty. Baseboard heaters help on the first two levels, the top level stays warm no problem.

There is a $25 per person/per day fee to use the Raquet Club's clubhouse for swimming pool/hot tub/exercise facilities. It is a 2min drive to the clubhouse or a 7min walk. We didn't eat at Blu's restaurant but it looked like the menu has something for every taste.

The shuttle is THE BEST way to get to the ski slopes. Parking gets expensive and is a cluster, battling the line of cars getting in/out of Vail Village parking or Lionshead parking.

The Raquet Club would be awesome in the summer (outdoor tennis courts), but The Town of Vail is fabulous year-round!

Perfect Ending to a Day on the Slopes

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience from the time we booked this townhouse until we left. The owners were very easy to work with and responded in a timely manner to our questions. The unit was just right for our group of 3 families. We were able to make great meals and seat everyone at the large kitchen table. We enjoyed relaxing by the fireplace. Very comfortable sleeping and good size bedrooms. It's conveniently located close to the free bus stop, which is great when carrying your gear and walking in ski boots, and when getting back after a night on the town. High marks for this rental! Hope to come back soon!

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a very restful stay - it took a day to get used to the sound of the traffic and creek at nite, but take a sleeping pill and it will also help with the high altitude. The club has great facilities. The surroundings were peaceful and taking walks were always very inviting. This unit has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms which is perfect to figure out certain combinations on where people should sleep as there are always a few fuzzy people/kids. Lyn the owner has been very accomodating.

Owner's Response: We have just installed all new windows so we now enjoy one of the quietest units in Vail! Just a side note, it is dangerous to take Ambien if you are experiencing altitude sickness. Drink plenty of water, avoid alcohol the first day and go to the ER if you get sick...they can get you back to normal in no time. Spending the first night in Denver to adjust if coming from sea level is a good idea too! Come back soon!
