About the property

2 Bedroom Condo - Golden Peak

Perfect location, charming condo on Gore Creek, walk to lifts, trails, dinner. This quiet, comfortable and charming condo is one of the most coveted locations in Vail. Just 300 yards to Golden Peak Ski School, Chair 6 and the Vista Bahn chairlift, the Vail Trails Chalet is close to everything Vail Mountain and Vail Village have to offer. Besides an endless supply of winter sports and activities, summertime is filled with nonstop outdoor fun, with easy access to hiking, golf, fishing, mountain biking, boating and water sports. The condo is a short walk to boutique shopping, night life, an array of dining options and the Ford Amphitheater.

The Master bedroom has a queen bed and flat screen TV. The guest bedroom has a double bed and a twin bed, and there is a bathroom located in the hallway. From the windows of both these bedrooms you look at the beautiful Gore Creek which is great to listen to as you fall asleep.

From the living room watch as the gondola travels up the slopes, this condo gives you great views of Vail ski mountain. There is a flat screen TV located in the living room as well.

This condo comes with its own parking spot. You can use Vail Village's pay lot which is close by if you have more than one car.

There is a ski storage locker next to the entrance of the property and a laundry machine for the property that requires coins to use!

About Parke Ehlers

This condo was purchased in 1974 and used most every weekend by our mother. She was a die hard skier into her 80's. In the 1960's her line of ski parkas was featured in Ski Magazine and Sports Illustrated. She was a pilot and an integral part to the history of Vail. She loved it dearly and hope you will too. One of the well known renters was Robert Redford during the 1980's.

Why Parke Ehlers chose Vail

This condo brings many wonderful memories of powder days, laughing and being together.

What makes this condo unique

My mother fell in love with this place and the intimate community of the Vail Valley. She was well known in all the stores and restaurants with her wired haired terrier. She loved being able to ski , fish and hike right from her front door.

2 Star accommodations, 5 star location, 5 star owners

  • 3 of 5

Location is fantastic. Close to Riva Bahn lift and Gondola. Skiing is, of course, phenomenal at Vail and you are right there. Few short blocks to all the shops and restaurants in Vail Village. We walked around most every night. Beds are old and a little saggy (we didn't sleep very well on them), couches are a little saggy and old, needs new carpet. Small Flat Screen TV's in main room and master bedroom. Not great seating for TV. Kitchen is well stocked with dishes and has everything you need. 1 small bathroom is a little challenging at times. Owners were great, helped us with everything we needed. Very responsive to requests and reservations. Parking spot is right in front of the condo and is prime. Would just recommend they get new beds, a few new couches and chairs and carpet in the short term.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I'm very sorry to hear the beds were saggy, both the queen and full are brand new mattresses. We are searching for new couches and will have them by ski season if not before. We appreciate all the suggestions.

If you're looking for a cozy 2BR that's close to the village look no further. Literally steps away from the gondola, shopping and nightlife. The condo is well equipped and Parke the owner is always available and very attentive to anything you may need. She lined us up w a packnplay, high chair and a baby sitter. Our travels from NOLA we're made very easy and enjoyable due to the owner and most importantly the location. Park and never have to leave!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying over the New Year's holiday in this prime location condo. It was an easy walk to the village for dinner and the the ski lifts. It was also a quick commute to Golden Peak for the New Year's fireworks celebration. There was plenty of space for a family of four. We had a great time during our stay, however the bathroom, kitchen and couches could use some updating.

A great place to stay close to Golden Peak

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay for skiers that want to be close to the lifts (<100 steps) and be near to Vail Village. It is a simple apartment with nice living space that fits 4 comfortably and probably up to 6 without trouble. Management was super helpful and responsive. We expect to return.
