Colorful Riverfront Chalet with Shared Pool and Hot Tub - Close to Ski Slopes

Glamorous mountain living meets a prime location in this riverview Vail ski lodging. This home is on the bus route to mountain slopes and offers guests access to a seasonal swimming pool and a year-round hot tub.

Located along the curve of Gore Creek on the edge of Vail, this home is just over three miles from Vail Ski Resort, and about 10 miles to Beaver Creek Resort. Its location in a neighborhood of similar townhomes keeps the noise level low.

Lovingly designed by a local high-end designer in Vail, this townhouse offers a fresh take on a modern home while paying homage to its mountain surroundings. Soft colors and textures, geometric patterns, and wood beams create a fine balance of comfort and rustic sophistication.

Upon entering the home, guests may store their gear in the spacious mud/laundry room just off the entry way. Toss active wear directly into the washer and dryer if you need to freshen your wardrobe. There are two full bathrooms, so guests won't have to wait too long for the shower.

Gather around the flatscreen TV on a periwinkle L-shaped sofa while the fireplace in the corner warms the home. Settle into one of the armchairs beside the hearth for extra warmth while you flip through the channels on cable or check snow reports on WiFi.

Visitors during the warm months will like the back deck and nice-sized lawn. Admire the tree line and listen to the babbling of Gore Creek. Explore the forests with your children, or take them to the water's edge to skip rocks and look for fish. Jump in the antique gondola car on the property and play pretend.

It's just a quick stroll to the shared pool and hot tub to beat the heat or sooth sore muscles. While the pool is only open during the summer, the hot tub is available all year round!

The spacious, well-lit kitchen with stainless steel appliances and blue cabinets will become the group cook's favorite spot in the house. Its open floor plan makes it easy for multiple guests to cook together, or for the cook to chat with those at the six-top dining table. Dine, put the dishes in the dishwasher, and move on to the next adventure with ease.

Up the stairs is a reading nook perfect for the family bookworm or the night owl with reading lights and a cozy sofa. The tall, slanted ceilings create a feeling of space and airiness.

This home can sleep six guests easily (four adults maximum, please) in the two large bedrooms upstairs. The upstairs has one full bathroom to share between the two rooms, though guests can easily spread out to the bathroom downstairs.

One of the bedrooms has two twin beds, perfect for friends or siblings to share. Get cozy on the window seat with a cup of tea, or rock quietly in the rocking chair in the corner. This room even has a vanity with a sink, so guests won't have to compete for space in the bathroom.

The second bedroom has a king bed and a wicker reading chair. A private balcony makes for a great place to read or doze in the sunshine.

The sofa upstairs folds out into a sleeper sofa for extra accommodations. This home is great for active families or groups of close friends exploring the mountains of the Vail Valley.

This is a great rental for winter visitors skiing any of the nearby resorts. Guests can shuttle everywhere on the town bus, so there's no need to worry about parking. Those who aren't into alpine skiing/riding will enjoy the extensive trail system of the Vail Nordic Center, snowshoeing, or booking a sleigh ride with a nearby stable. Take the kids to the heart of Vail for ice skating or sledding.

When summer comes, it's time to bring out the bikes and the hiking boots. This home is close to several nearby hiking trails, including the ones on Vail Mountain. Golf is a must at one of several nearby golf courses, or you could take the kids for mini-golf. Vail Mountain has several family-friendly options including ziplines, a rope course, disc golf, and gondola rides.

Take a day trip to the shores of Lake Dillon for fishing and water recreation like sailing and stand-up paddle boarding. Make sure to check out the farmers' market in Vail for fresh produce, breads, and baked goods, plus the myriad dining options for the times you don't want to cook at home. Come into Vail in the early evening for the Hot Summer Nights concert series.

This Vail Valley vacation rental is a versatile home for the active and adventurous - book today!
