Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The LARKSPUR 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 updated, 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 updated 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. Please visit our other VRBO listings as well:

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.

**During high season (Winter and Summer) we try to rent Saturdays to Saturdays, trying not to straddle weekends.**

No smoking or pets allowed.

About Andrew Forstl

We live in Vail and ski as much as possible. Our two young children 10 and 12 both go to school in Vail and love all that the mountain has to offer. We are here for your needs and would love to help you plan your vacation as only a local can do.

Thank you,

Meg and Andy Forstl

Why Andrew Forstl chose Vail Village

This property is a one of a kind property in Vail. Being a single family home on it's own lot gives you privacy and plenty of parking. This is a true log cabin and most of the cabins in Vail have been gone a long time and condos have taken there place. The location and charm make this home special!

What makes this house unique

During your stay in Vail, we can help you plan your vacation with everything you'll need from tips on dining out to getting 10% off on all rental equipment. We are long time locals who can help make your trip more enjoyable!

Charming, roomy cabin in great location.

  • 4 of 5

‘‘This cabin has everything that our family needed. Plenty of bedrooms, large table and nice kitchen area. Loved the large deck and hot tub!! Andy was very nice to deal with and prompt to help with any issue we had. Only negative was that we felt the cabin could have been a little cleaner. There were cobwebs in the corners and on the light fixtures. Just felt it could use a real “deep” cleaning. Overall, a nice place for us to stay, while celebrating our sons wedding. Love Vail!!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property because it seemed to fit out needs for a planned family vacation for us, our 3 adults sons, and two daughters-in-law. Andrew met us upon our arrival and was easily available. It was quaint, cozy, and comfortable, and large enough for us to be able to have our own space when needed. The kitchen and large kitchen table were just right for when we wanted to cook and eat in. The kitchen was well-supplied with cooking utensils and cookware. The fireplace was a nice feature, as were the 3 flat screen TV's - one in one of the bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs - perfect for gathering to what the Winter Olympics in the evening after our day in the outdoors. Access was easy either through the door with the key that was kept in a lock box, or thru the key-coded garage door. The garage is available but we kept our vehicles outside. Since the property is in West Vail, there was a short ride into Vail Village. The bus stop for the FREE bus ride to Vail Village was a very short walk from the house. The bus is a very nice feature used by many staying in the area. If you're not a downhill skier, there is cross country skiing and some non-skiers in our group even took a snowmobile tour which they really enjoyed.

The hot tub was enjoyed by the family multiple times. There are plenty of towels, and a fully functional laundry room. You'll want to take a book light if you're the type that reads in bed. The spiral staircase was a cool feature, but could be a challenge to navigate if you have any difficulty walking. If you are renting a vehicle in the winter, I suggest getting a 4-wheel drive option since it will make it much easier to get around when it shows. Be aware that some of the highways leading into Vail require a 4-wheel drive vehicle under certain conditions, or, if you have 2-wheel drive you must have chains on.

This cabin is FANTASTIC! Wonderful location and steps away from the Vail bus system. Hot tub was fun! Kitchen fully stocked with everything you need! Hairdryer, sleds, towels, pretty much everything you need. Andy cane and helped us when disposal was stopped up right away! Very friendly family to rent from, I recommend this cabin!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding, and this house couldn’t have been a better home base for us. Andy was great to work with, and I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone that asks.
