Wild mountain adventures await you and up to nine other family or friends when you stay in this vintage East Vail vacation rental in the beautiful coniferous forests of the Vail, Colorado region.
Located just seven minutes from Vail proper and Vail Ski Resort, and 20 minutes from Beavercreek Ski Resort, this five-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home sits at the base of Vail Pass, with easy access to several trails leading into the spectacular Rocky Mountains.
Hidden behind a stand of blue spruce, you'll still get a fabulous view from the deck of Vail Valley, and a clear sky when you soak in the home's private hot tub. Inside is vintage ski lodge decor, plenty of natural light, and leather furniture ready to engulf you after a busy day of skiing/riding! Get the wood fireplace going and settle in for a game show marathon, or bring your HDMI chord to hook up your Netflix via WiFi to the flatscreen. Admire antique snowshoes, vintage ski posters, and old photographs hanging on the wall, and that plaid armchair will become your favorite reading spot, guaranteed.
Cook in an 80s style kitchen, full of all the gadgets you could possibly need to make your favorite home cooked meals: a blender for protein shakes in the morning, and espresso maker, a mixer for cookie dough, and a slow-cooker for a roast or a chili that will leave the house smelling divine! There's even a gas grill outside for barbecues on sunny afternoons. Eat at the dining table, ranch house style with benches and a checkered table cloth, and put the dishes away in the dishwasher when bedtime arrives.
When guests want to wind down and relax together, they can head to the den area with two more leather sofas, a table perfect for card games, a TV with a DVD/VHS player, and a mini wet bar for setting up snacks away from the action of Black Jack or Settlers of Catan. There's a poker table supplied for tournament nights as well. There is a sleeper sofa here, with a teddy bear ready to snuggle!
Can't stand to put on the same sweaty ski socks again? Toss your activewear in the washer/dryer to keep your packing light and your clothes fresh!
As night falls, retire to five cozy bedrooms done in varying shades of blue: the master suite with a king bed set against a gorgeous blue wall can also be converted into an office space for those who need a moment to compose a work email or write in their journal. The guest room is spacious with a queen bed and plenty of closet space. Six twin beds complete the bed count; it is suggested that a maximum of eight adults share this space, with a maximum occupancy of 10 guests.
You'll have no problem keeping busy in East Vail—die-hard snow bunnies will love the location to utilize their prime location to visit local ski areas—Vail and Beavercreek, but also Keystone and Breckenridge, both around 40 minutes from your front door; head to Copper, just 20 minutes away, or visit Loveland, also 40 minutes away. Enjoy Vail's posh base village with Alps-inspired architecture, high-end fun and games, and delicious eateries and pubs. Snowshoe and Nordic ski, or stay inside with a mug of hot cocoa.
If you're here in the summer, golf at the Vail Golf Club, hike, and fly-fish. Drive to Frisco, just 20 minutes down the road, for fresh water sports at Dillion Reservoir. Vail also hosts one amazing farmers' market, as well as art shows, bike races, running races, and a Duck Race for charity down the local creek.
Adventure awaits you in this Vail Valley vacation rental.
