Incredible property and hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, pictures don't do it justice! This place is incredibly gorgeous, and so organized by the homeowner. There were labels on everything and instructions making it incredibly easy to figure out things you may have questions on. Everything went so smooth, I would definitely stay here again.

Thanks again!

Great Experience (The Powder Helped)

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Highland Meadows in Vail was a blast with our large group of friends/family. Starting with the excellent communications with Jessica (Property Owner) where she answered all of my questions, to arriving and taking in the beautiful mountain view this property has to offer. Everything about the experience was first class and the property was in top notch shape. None of us ever wanted to leave. Thank You for a truly wonderful getaway in Vail.

This rental was great for my girls trip. The hot time was bigger then we thought which was perfect after a day of snow shoeing! We would recommend this place to others.

Beautiful Home with Plenty of Space

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our golf trip. We had 8 people and there was plenty of room for all of us. The hot tub was a great bonus. The home is beautifully decorated and I can't say enough great things about the owner. They made the process easy and smooth! Will definitely use this home again for future trips.

Large Friend Group Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house! Beautiful home nestled high above West Vail with plenty of room and amenities. I had a full group in the home and we all have more than enough space and bathrooms to utilize. Great kitchen and living space as well as a cool outdoor area with hot tub. If you have a large group, parking can be a little tricky and the neighbor is serious about watch-dogging it. It is a cheap Uber or Taxi ride to and from town, or you can take the bus with the stop just down the hill. Other than that, everything was wonderful! Thank you Jessica and Austin!
