Property description

The Forest Lodge is a single family home located in one of Vail's most scenic neighborhoods. Enjoy the views from this beautiful log cabin with an open floor plan, private 7 person hot tub on its own deck, four bedrooms, two baths, one car garage, wood stove, and WIFI. Located in the heart of West Vail, 150 feet from the free Town of Vail bus stop, no car is needed for you to get to and from Vail Village and the slopes.
This recently remodeled, family-owned vacation home is not part of a rental pool and is used primarily by our family as a second home. You will deal with the owners directly instead of with an uncaring rental agency.

Fully furnished to sleep eight people comfortably with QUEEN BEDS in the master and in both guest bedrooms, a full/twin bunk bed in the third guest room, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. All with down comforters and pillows! The recently remodeled kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and everything you'll need for cooking at home. New flat screen TV's in the upper and lower living areas as well as in the master bedroom. The front deck offers an opportunity for dining al fresco at a redwood table for 8 and a Weber gas BBQ for grilling year round, all with incredible views of the Davos Trail. The back deck has a 7-person hot tub in a very private setting. Parking available for up to 5 cars.

Alpine and Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, hiking, biking, golf,fly fishing, and tennis are all nearby as is the newly renovated Gerald Ford Amphitheater. Stephen's Park and playground is less than a 5 minute walk down the road.

Once you arrive there is no need to drive. Leave your car in the garage and walk 150 feet to the bus stop for the free, ten minute ride to the Heart of Vail Village. Or, walk, roller blade or ride your bike into town on the beautiful bike path that runs alongside Gore Creek.

No smoking or pets allowed.
