About the Property
3 Bedroom 2 Bath well appointed right on the Eagle River, Highway 6 in Avon
This comfortable and cozy townhome features all 3 bedrooms upstairs each including luxurious linens and 2 full baths. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed, walk in closet and flat screen TV. The best feature about this room, and the bedroom right next to it, is the large sliding window that when opened, even slightly, allows you to hear the beautiful sound of the Eagle River right below. The master bath has double vanity sinks and an oversized tub with shower.
The larger bedroom has a queen bed and two twin beds. The other riverside room has two twins beds. If needed, there is a blow-up twin mattress in the close (with extra bedding).
Downstairs you will find a half bath, the utility room with full sized washer and dryer, cubbies for hats and gloves, and a boot dryer. Also on this main floor is a kitchen with new dishes, glassware and cookware, and new appliances, such as toaster oven, 4 slice toaster, coffee maker/hot water dispenser, large crockpot and large electric skillet. If you want to cook and eat at 'home', you'll find everything you need except the food! The kitchen opens into the dining area with a table that can be extended if necessary. The table is right next to the sliding glass door leading onto the deck.
The living room is comfortable and cozy with games for your enjoyment, as well as a 60 inch flatscreen HD TV and Blu Ray player. Our home has Comcast cable TV, as well as wifi for your convenience. The space includes a gas fireplace with logs, that warms up surprisingly with the flip of a switch. There is a large picture window with a gorgeous view.
The deck overlooks the river and includes a Weber grill and table with 6 chairs, a great place for relaxing in summer months.
River Forge is located about 1/2 mile east of Avon Road on Highway 6, tucked off the road, right by the Eagle River. Convenient to restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, bakeries and Starbucks, you are literally minutes from everything Avon/Beaver Creek has to offer, and very close to Vail and Arrowhead as well. The bus stop is just steps away from our home. The Westin Riverfront hotel is 1/2 mile east where you can take the Gondola up to the ski area and other lifts. The 'Bear' parking lot is only blocks away on Highway 6, which provides a convenient shuttle to Beaver Creek Ski area.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Convenient to year round fun, River Forge #3 is located right on the Eagle River minutes from Beaver Creek Ski Area. The bus stop right out in front of the townhome takes you to Vail and to town, for a nominal fee. Right around the corner on Stonebridge (the street that goes across the Eagle River), is another stop, and this bus is free (the Red line), and will get you to the Beaver Creek bus stop, the Westin (where you can catch the gondola), and to grocery stores. These buses come every half hour. Vail and Arrowhead Ski areas are only minutes away as well and accessible by car or public transportation. Our townhome is also minutes from great restaurants in Avon, Edwards, Arrowhead and Vail. The beauty and tranquility of the Eagle River cannot be understated as you sit on the deck enjoying the view, or tuck yourself in at night with the window open listening to the river.
Enjoy the comfort of the living room, dining room and deck on the first level with gorgeous views of the river. The kitchen has top quality appliances, dishes, pots, pans, and utensils, for cooking at home as you relax after a long day of fun. There is a large screen HD TV in the den, along with a Blu-ray player, and free wifi as well.
Upstairs you will find three large bedrooms, the master with a queen size bed, dresser and night stands, a large bedroom with a queen and two twin beds, and a third bedroom with two twins . Luxurious linens for the beds and plush towels for the baths will comfort you after a day of skiing or hiking or shopping.
You will quickly learn that this location is quiet, but very convenient to everything you need in Avon...not only restaurants, but two stellar bakeries, Avon Bakery and the Columbine, a great grocery store, City Market, and local favorite restaurants, Vin 48 (a must try), Loaded Joe's, Montana's, to name a few...all right by each other near the Westin which is only 1/2 mile down Highway 6. And speaking of the Westin, the patio offers a breathtaking view of the entire Beaver Creek Ski Mountain, and has an excellent restaurant, Maya, not to be missed, as well as the renowned Spa for that relaxing massage.
Next door to the Westin is Beaver Creek Sports where you can rent bicycles, then take off down the paved path by the river toward Edwards to the west or Vail to the east.
For fly fishing enthusiasts, step right out the door of your townhome at River Forge into the Eagle River, or check out all the fishing guides in the area, and our favorite, Minturn Anglers, just 5 -10 minutes east of the house Highway 6 in Minturn.
In the summer, be sure to check out the various 'farmers' markets' in Vail Village, Minturn and other areas. The 'Vail Daily' newspaper will keep you informed. Also, we've enjoyed a day trip/hike to Piney River Ranch, or Booth Falls, and bike riding through Glenwood Canyon.
Also, not to be missed in the summer are the annual outdoor concerts at the Gerald Ford Amphitheatre in Vail.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We are from Dallas and visited Vail Valley for the first time in 2012. We were instantly hooked on the beauty, the cool temps (in August!), and everything that the Valley had to offer for recreation and relaxation. We began looking for something to purchase and share, and to hopefully someday, be able to spend more time. It didn't take long as we found River Forge. Our goal is to make the townhome our home away from home, and be able to share it with friends and family and new friends who come our way by VRBO.
Why the Owner Chose Avon, CO, USA:
Quite simply, it was first, the location. Getting in and out is so easy, and River Forge really is convenient to all the things there are to do in the area. The beauty of the river cannot be overstated either.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
So close to everything! Just a few minutes drive up to Beaver Creek Village or Vail Village or Arrowhead. Or bike riding along the beautiful paved pathway that follows along the Eagle River... There's just so much to do, in any season, and River Forge is right there in the middle of all of it! Distance from River Forge #3 to: Vail, 9.4 miles Beaver Creek, 3.12 miles Minturn, 6.24 miles Edwards, 4.73 miles Eagle/Vail Regional Airport, 27 miles
