About Heather Bacon
We live in Colorado because of our love for the mountains. We have 3 young kids, all in the Vail ski school program.
Heather Bacon purchased this House in 2015
Why Heather Bacon chose Highland Meadows
Vail is an amazing place that constantly inspires us... Whether it is a new trail, a gorgeous sunset, a bluebird powder day or a crisp morning, every day brings something new. But it is as much the inspiration of the people as it is the surroundings and that we meet in and around Vail that makes us love it so much....
What makes this House unique
The at-home in-mountains feel of the home where you can feel both in the heart of the town and all the action as you can feel tranquil and away... We fell in love with the home when we drove up... And then it was the deck, the classic sauna, the breakfast banquette, the immersive library, the winding floor plan... All these unique features felt right and combined to create a great energy in our home.

This house was perfect it had everything one would need in your own home.
The Bacon home is a beautiful home. Every detail is considered for a guest. As you arrive there isn’t much you need to bring or purchase. It’s a comfortable home with all the comforts from your own home . Open and bright living and dining area. All bedrooms and closets are spacious. Lots of sitting area for meals and nice open kitchen. Mud room is the best no shoes rules in the house is great. Having a garage to park your car is a plus. Hot tub and sauna were well used after a long day of skiing. We would definitely rent this home in the near future.Thank you Bacon family.

A beautiful mountain oasis
What a wonderful home, tucked right in to the side of the beautiful Vail mountains. We came up with friends for a weekend away from the city and were pleased with the amenities - the great room with the fireplace alone makes this property top notch. There are ample beds and bedrooms (the downstairs king bed was so comfortable, I never wanted to leave), a kitchen worthy of cooking something fancy, as well as full cable (and Netflix!). As an added bonus, there was an awesome hiking trail just steps away from the driveway. We were there before the snow, but I can imagine it's snowshoe'able as well. It's a quick drive to the mountain and in to town, and moments away from grocery stores and restaurants. If you're looking for the ultimate mountain escape, this is your place!
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope you have the opportunity to come back during ski season!
Shuttle to Vail Resort at bottom of hill(about a quarter of a mile), or a short drive into town for some of the best restaurants, bar, shopping, and skiing in the West. Grocery Store, liquor store & restaurants are just across the highway about 5 minutes away.
