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 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. 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.

No smoking or pets allowed.

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.

Great location and property.

  • 4 of 5

The property is clean and well maintained. Awesome location. Based on pictures, I anticipated the rooms to be a little bigger than actual.

Perfect Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about this home very much on the wedding weekend (Sept 2017) of our daughter! This lovely home accommodated sleeping arrangements upstairs for the grandparents and parents of the bride and the lower level bedrooms with the brothers of the bride. We were able to walk back and forth to the duplex cabin where the bridal party was staying. Many of the guests walked to the bus stop to get to wedding festivities easily. The home was cozy with the beds very comfy. There is a beautiful view from every window. Thank you Andy for making our wedding weekend fun so very much like home. We hope to come back again!

Wonderful Vacation Site

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is exactly as advertised! We spent a week with our family, including our two adult children, their partners, and a 2 and 4 year old. Initially we had some concerns about the children and the spiral staircase, but it was never an issue. All eight of us enjoyed having the space to hang out together AND room to find some privacy. We cooked almost all of our meals in the well supplied kitchen, putting the crockpot, griddle, and waffle iron all to good use. The owners live next door and are readily available to provide assistance, if needed. As a matter of fact, when Andy realized we had two young children with us, he brought by a box of toys for their enjoyment. They were captivated by having new toys to play with and were kept occupied for hours, a bonus for everyone! There is a lovely playground within easy walking distance, and of course, the entire Vail Valley's resources are within reach. During our week, we went to see the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Ford Amphitheater, journeyed to the top of the mountain for the Epic Discovery adventures, strolled the Farmer's Market, explored the Betty Ford Alpine Garden, attended story time at the library, watched an ice skating competition at the Dobson Arena, rode bikes, took a fly fishing expedition, and simply hung out in our home away from home. A good time was truly had by all!

4th of July Vail Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Meg and Andrew's home was the perfect spot for our group vacation to Vail for the 4th of July holiday. The home has so cozy and has everything you need. It's conveniently located on the bus line, which made it so easy to get to and from town. We were also able to enjoy the hikes nearby. Andrew and Meg were fantastic hosts and so wonderful to work with. Would highly recommend for family or group vacations!
