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.

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.

Reviews

The beautiful view from the balcony!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Aug 30, 2017

This bear needed a cooler place for his summer vacation and Lion Square Lodge in Vail was the perfect fit. The condo was wonderfully stocked with everything you need to cook meals, comfortable beds with luxury linens, a Murphy bed (our little cub’s “secret magic bed”), a cozy fireplace, and of course beautiful mountain views! We loved leaving the balcony door open to let in the fresh air off the mountain and taking in the vista while we played cards and board games. The older cub spent time in the heated pool and hot tubs while Mama and Papa enjoyed the mountain & stream views. The location of the condo was convenient to so many amenities. It was a short beautiful walk to Lionshead Village where we could grab a bite or head right out our front door for a hike along Gore Creek or if we were feeling really industrious, up the mountain! Lionshead is within walking distance to Vail Village, which is connected by beautiful trails through the forest. The cub’s favorite activities included the gondola ride up the mountain, visiting the playgrounds on our daily walks, hiking, and renting bikes to cruise around Vail and the surrounding area. Mama bear loved her morning run through the forest and Papa bear loved the various micro brews Colorado has to offer. Lion Square Lodge is the perfect place to stay to take in all Vail has to offer. This bear family can’t wait to go back!

Great condo/excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Not only is the condo building nicely located for exploring Vail by foot in the Fall (and quite convenient to grocery and wine stores), the condo itself is conveniently located within the building - close to the elevator and stairs with a nice ski area view from the back/deck. Super neat and clean with attentive owners just a call or email away. Check in and front desk assistance during the stay were wonderful. Daily newspapers and fresh coffee in the entry lounge were a really nice touch. The only nit-picky comments: a little larger deck would have been nice; a little better lighting for reading in both the living room and bedroom (we were there to vegetate). For a ski trip, this would definitely be a 4.5 - or higher - facility.

Great Condo / Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect condo for our family. The condo is perfectly located in Lionshead Village and is a short bus ride (or leisurely walk) to Vail Village. The condo is beautifully furnished and comfortable. We enjoyed cooking breakfast in the well stocked kitchen with the patio door open to let in the crisp, fall air. The views of the mountain and the fall colors were amazing. The condo has many card and board games - it would be fun to turn on the fireplace and play games on a cold winter's night!

Rick and Sharon provided great information about the condo and surrounding area prior to arrival. They also have a book in the condo with suggestions for restaurants.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely look into booking this condo on our next trip to Vail!

Great location! Close walk to everything. Beautifully furnished. Very comfy condo.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Lion Square Lodge. The condo is in a convenient location and furnished beautifully. Beds were super comfy! Kitchen well stocked. Everything was spotless. Owner was attentive, and touched base with us to make sure we had everything we needed. Check in is in the next building and was quick and easy. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. It was a short walk to restaurants, shopping, and gondola. We were there during "restaurant week" which meant we got awesome deals in all the restaurants because of the slow season. Many of the shops were shut down because of it being off season but they didn't bother us. Less crowds to deal with. This was our first visit to Vail and it is absolutely beautiful. Can't wait to visit again in the summer. Just wish the gondola was running while we were there.

The only reason I didn't give this property 5 stars was the pool and larger outdoor hot tubs are in the other building where you check in. Although it's a very short walk and robes are provided, we felt a bit awkward walking over there in bathrobes so we just carried our robes and bathing suits over and changed in the locker room. There is a hot tub in the building where the condo is located, but after seeing the main pool/hot tub area we chose to make the very short walk over to the larger hot tubs.

We would stay at this property again. Wish I could give it 4 1/2 stars. We had a lovely time in Vail and can't wait to visit again. Thanks Rick and Sharon for sharing your beautiful home!

This is great condo, with many wonderful features.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a 3 day weekend at this great condo. The condo is located in the center of Lionshead, and the view is spectacular. You can see the ski slopes right out the front of the unit. It is in the center of Lionshead, with restaurants, shops and bus stops close by so you can get to Vail Village in a few minutes. It is beautiful inside, and all the amenities you could ask for.
