About Sharon & Rick
I was born and raised in a suburb of Charlotte, NC and was living in Wilmington, NC when I was invited to a girls weekend get-away to Vail in 1993. I met my husband Rick in the Red Lion the first day of that trip (blissful ever since!). Rick was living in Wisconsin at the time, so we dated long-distance for a year and a half. The following year he proposed to me at the top of the Mountain Top Express lift (4) overlooking Sun Up Bowl, China Bowl, and Blue Sky Basin with a photographer in-tow. I said 'yes' and moved to the Midwest to start our new life together (I'm still not certain that leaving a coastal community for the Midwest was the best idea :-). Needless to say, Vail is truly a magical place for us. Our family escapes our day jobs for Vail as often as we can. Owning a place in Vail was a dream of ours since the day we met. Now that we have a place to call our own, we are happy to share our Vail home with you to make your own memories. We currently live in a Minneapolis suburb where Rick is an executive with an employee benefits administration firm and I am the director of a large preschool. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We hope that you enjoy our place as much as we do and we welcome you back on your next visit to the Vail Valley. -- Sharon & Rick --
Why Sharon & Rick chose Lionshead Village
Lion Square Lodge is so close to all that Vail has to offer. The ski-in/ski-out convenience and Lionshead Village steps from the door makes this the perfect place to be, winter or summer. Lion Square Lodge has so many amenities which makes staying here incredibly easy and convenient. Unlike several ski-in/ski-out places, Lion Square Lodge North Residences are very quiet during the evenings which makes it the perfect place for families and couples looking for a romantic get-away.

Great place for two small families
Beautiful, cozy and excellent location I highly recommend it for two small families, we were four adults and two kids.
Thank you Rick and Sharon for the quick response to our needs I hope we can visit again and stay at your place :)
Great stay in Lionshead and this condo at Lion Square Lodge was in a perfect location
We had a great week, great weather, great skiing. We're a family of 4 with 3 skiers. The condo was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The location is great - in the heart of Lionshead Village. We took advantage of parking, ski rentals and on-site storage, the fitness center and the hot tub. Enjoyed it all. Looking for constructive feedback: the hot tub close to the condo is boxed in with no outside view (could go over to the other building for the outdoor pool and hot tub) and the keys cards didn't consistently work (the front desk was great with getting us new ones). We'd happily stay here again.
A few steps from the Lionshead Gondola, this apartment is perfect for a small family
We just returned home from a 10-night stay in this wonderful unit. Location is excellent, as the property is right next to the Lionshead Gondola, the most efficient way to get up Vail mountain. After a day on the slopes, you can leave your skis with the ski-in/out overnight valet, and walk across a small parking lot to get to the unit. No long walks lugging skis and poles wearing ski boots, no shuttle bus needed. This is a luxury!
The unit is not large, but it is wonderfully utilized and very well appointed. The master bedroom is actually pretty spacious, even with a king size bed. Our three teenage boys slept in the living room, which turns into a bedroom for as many as four with a Murphy bed and a sleeper sofa. The unit has two well-appointed full bathrooms. Closet space is limited, though, so our only challenge was getting the boys to keep the place more or less presentable.
The unit's owners have put a lot of thought and effort into the apartment. Details like multiple outlets and charging ports on both nightstands in the master bedroom, or integrated timers for bathroom heat lamps and extractor fans, are small details that you appreciate once you realize they are there. And the owners -Sharon and Rick- were very attentive during our stay; we had a minor maintenance issue with a window blind and Rick addressed it quickly.
All in all, the unit is a wonderful place to stay while in Vail. You trade a little bit of square footage in favor of a great location, but that is a trade we will make every time in a ski vacation. And like I said, the unit is pristine and the space is well utilized.
We would be happy to return to the unit in the future.
Sharon & Rick's place was the perfect Vail condo for our family of 4! First let me begin with the location... it couldn't have been any better- right in the heart of Lionshead. The view of the mountain was beautiful, Charter Sports literally right next door for easy ski rentals, 2 minute walk to the gondola, and a short walk (or shuttle ride) to Vail Village. Great restaurants right in Lionshead - we enjoyed Montauk Seafood and Blue Moose Pizza.
The condo itself is absolutely gorgeous as well as meticulous. It was extremely comfortable for my husband & I and our two college-aged boys. It was so well stocked- I easily made a hearty breakfast each morning and had warm cookies ready apres ski. Loved that there were spices, coffee filters, etc provided.
Rick couldn't have been more helpful! Before we even arrived, we received an email with information on anything we could possibly need for our stay. Rick contacted my husband upon our arrival to make sure that we were happy with our accommodations! We couldn't have asked for a better host!
Thank you Sharon & Rick for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. We hope to be back!
5 Stars for this Lionshead North Condo
Beginning with an early inquiry, Rick has helped make our vacation perfect! His ability to thoughtfully respond to all questions during our planning was second to none. The condo was great - a family of 5, all comfortable. The living room layout was comfortable and the Murphy bed was perfect! Coordinate a grocery drop from Resort Grocery so you have the kitchen stocked when you arrive.
We loved this location - Charter Sports next to the lobby, a very short walk to the ski valet, a very short walk to the ice rink and all of Lionshead.
Super convenient spot, great condo with access to a pool, hot tub and Mexican restaurant just a short walk away in the South Building. Sunshine and views of the trails as well from the 2nd floor porch - which has a grill that we used the first night.
We plan to re-book with Rick and Sharon again!!
The only hard part is leaving Vail!
We stayed at Rick and Sharon's condo and couldn't be more pleased. The unit had everything we needed to be at home away from home, from a well stocked kitchen to hair dryers under each bathroom sinks. There are USB charging ports in the living room and the master bedroom which made recharging our electronics a breeze. The furnishings are perfect for mountain elegance. The views from the balcony directly at Vail's runs are simply breathtaking.
The location was awesome! We were literally a few steps to everything we could want; the Gondola, Born Free Express chairlift, ski school, coffee shops, restaurants, and the ice rink. There's even a ski shop in the building making equipment rentals super easy.
Thank you for such great hospitality and sharing your mountain getaway with us. We will definitely stay at your place on our next visit.
