Tucked into the valley of the Gore Mountain Range, Eagle is surrounded on all sides by the grand-scale beauty of the Rockies. Our Eagle vacation rentals are the perfect home-away-from-home for the adventurous, the outdoorsy, or the world-weary looking for a quiet place to reconnect with nature.
Eagle, Colorado acts as the gateway to majestic mountain peaks and wide-open skies: it's just 31 miles to Vail on I-70. It maintains a small-town feel with an upscale flare, and offers its visitors Vail Valley vacation rentals with easy access to some of the best skiing, hiking, and biking terrain the entire state of Colorado has to offer.
"Active" is the verb of Eagle: Bike to Work Day, Yoga in the Park, The Back Bowl and, of course, countless trails for Nordic skiing, biking, or cross country running make this a town of movement. Our Eagle vacation rentals will make the perfect resting place for you and your family and/or friends after a busy day bustling about.
A typical day in Eagle would include a visit to one of the local eateries in town, such as Yeti's Grind or Red Canyon Cafe, after a relaxing yoga session at Yoga on Broadway. If it's winter time, you're a car or shuttle ride away from Beaver Creek Resort and Vail Mountain Resort, both offering phenomenal terrain, lessons for all ages and levels, and an enthusiastic atmosphere. If it's summer time, hike up one of the many trail heads that start right in town such as Mayer or Abrams Gulch, take a drive to Sylvan Lake State Park, or knock a ball around the green at the Eagle Ranch Golf Club.
The town of Eagle is bustling with an active Main Street, a renovated shopping district, and plenty of opportunities to let loose and enjoy yourself. This is a community-oriented town, and they will eagerly invite you to join in with their favorite past times, festivals, and celebrations all year round.
Perhaps take a trip to the spa - there are two in Eagle, and many more in Beaver Creek and Vail - or take a swim around the Eagle Pool, or hit the Capitol Movie Theater.
Your stay at an Eagle vacation rental will be one of activity: there are trails to explore from Gypsum to Copper Mountain, all along an hour's drive of highway, and all with their own unique charms. Eagle itself welcomes you with open arms and then leaves you to contemplate, to explore, and to relish life. As the common saying goes in the Rockies: "If you're lucky enough to live in the mountains, than you are lucky enough".
