Property description

Come stay at your home away from home in Vail, Colorado!
Vail Business License #2629
Just off of 'Born Free', the ski run leading to the gondola. The house is 120 yards from the ski run and overlooks the magnificent Gore Range Mountains. Named 'Chalet du Soleil', this charming four bedroom home is within easy walking distance of fine restaurants and shops. The house is on a large lot. Sledding and playing in the snow can be enjoyed by those with excess energy after skiing. We provide the sleds. The house is equipped with all the amenities you are accustomed to in your own home.

The house comfortably accommodates up to ten people. The master suite features a queen-size bed plus whirlpool tub for two (jacuzzi type) and separate shower room. The other main floor bedroom includes a queen-size bed, bath/shower, and an expansive bay window. The third bedroom on the upper floor has a queen-size bed, two twin-size beds, plenty of closet space, and a large vanity sink area.

The fourth bedroom is, in fact, an adjoining studio-apartment with king-size bed, queen-size hide-a-bed, compact kitchen, full bath, and large walk-in closet. All beds are made up in the Swiss-style with comforters, extra pillows, and ironed sheets. Smoking is not permitted.

The owners, Fred and Thea, live in the house next door and will be happy to make your stay a pleasant one! Their daughter, Heather Kehoe, lives in Eagle and manages the property.

Great views and just a short walk to amost everthing you could need. 07/25/2016

VRBO Bear stayed here:


Chalet du Soleil is a cozy mountain retreat in the charming Lionshead Village of Vail. With a gorgeous view of the Gore Range Mountains and prime proximity to the gondolas and the village, whether you’ve come for a weekend hibernation or to shred some slopes with the clan, the Chalet promises to serve up to your needs. The painstaking care shows in the details, like a fully-stocked kitchen, complete with a fridge and pantry full of the basics, and all the accoutrements needed to whip up your own homemade meals. And let’s not forget the adorable customized toiletries in every bathroom. The cubs were delighted to find a game cupboard full of puzzles and board games, as well as a cabinet full of novels, all of which (in addition to the in-suite Jacuzzi!) offer a relaxing alternative to any of the more wild outdoor adventures. But where’s the fun without a little adventure? With three floors, and sleeping 10+, feel free bring the whole gang along on your mountain excursion! The house is a short walk from the gondolas and the heart of Lionshead, right off the “Born Free” ski run, perfect for tourists without transportation looking to have some fun. Location is excellent, the perfect launching point and home base for your Vail adventure, whether that be hiking, mountain-biking, skiing, etc.! Owners were kind and responsive, location was great, and the home was well-appointed. The Bear Family paws-itively adored their trip, and would certainly stay here again!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1966

About the owner: Thea says, 'The character of Chalet du Soleil is incomparable and is sure to please.' Fred and Thea Rumford have owned this charming mountain home since 1966 when it was built as a weekend getaway for their family. Skiing is a large part of their lives. They have raised their children to grow up with a tremendous appreciation for the alpine lifestyle and they take great joy in now seeing their grandchildren follow in the ski tracks of their parents. The Rumfords also take pride in upgrading and maintaining their beautiful home each year. Last year the kitchen was completely remodeled...it's lovely...

Why the Owner Chose Lionshead Village, Vail, CO, USA:
It's the little things that the owners/manager do to make this place special.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Prime Lionshead location. Specular views of the Gore Range Mountains. Very family friendly accommodations.
