It's surprisingly easy to get around the entire valley with the largest free transportation system in the country. You'll find convenient shuttle bus access near many of our rentals to whisk you away to the heart of Vail - even if you decide to stay in a peaceful cabin rental closer to a rushing river than a bustling ski resort!
For those who do like to keep their finger on the pulse of the town, you won't find a better spot than our luxury cabin rentals in glamorous Vail itself, within walking distance to dozens of hotspots in Vail Village, Golden Peak, and Lionshead.
Bavarian-style villages and pedestrian streets exude old world charm and host diverse boutiques and dining, from sandwich shops to five-star cuisine. Sunny pub decks invite you to share a mid-day beer, while dance clubs, live music, and karaoke bars bring the village to life once the sun sets. And, of course, the carefully manicured slopes of Vail Mountain are just steps away.
Looking for peace and quiet in your Vail Valley vacation rental? Just five miles east, with stunning mountain and valley vistas, over 18 bikes paths, and a plethora of hiking trails just out your front door, our ski home rentals in scenic East Vail will provide an ideal gateway to the natural beauty and outside attractions of Vail Valley - without the crowds! Fish along Gore Creek, hike up the six mile trail to awe-inspiring Booth Falls, then take advantage of the hot tubs, pools, steam rooms, and recreation center at the Vail Racquet Club. For the more daring souls, the East Vail Chutes provide difficult terrain and a unique challenge for more advanced skiers.
On the other side of town, you'll find historic West Vail. Originally an expansion of Vail Resort, West Vail is now a quiet, residential neighborhood that offers a peaceful escape. It's only a short drive or free shuttle ride away from the world famous resort, but a condo rental here is a little less hectic than Vail Village, and ideally situated to exploit both the sunshine from the north and the scenic alpine vistas from the south.
Vail Valley Ski Resorts
Head further west and you'll have your choice of not one, but two renowned ski resorts within close reach when you choose from our private cabin rentals or condos in the quaint town of Avon, just 10 miles from the Vail slopes and home to the popular Beaver Creek Resort. Known for its upscale and family-friendly accommodations, Beaver Creek Resort is comprised of three villages: Beaver Creek Village, Bachelor's Gulch, and Arrowhead, each connected by catwalks and boasting 25 ski lifts and 1,832 skiable acres. Visitors will enjoy ice skating in the center of the village, art galleries, and plenty of dining and shopping.
Summer in Vail Valley
Further west and set in a more quiet and residential community, our vacation rentals in Eagle Vail and Edwards will attract those looking for a more peaceful retreat. Located between Avon and Vail in the heart of the Eagle River Valley, Eagle-Vail is home to one of the finest golf courses around at the EagleVail Golf Club, as well as a deluxe public pool in the summer and excellent cross country ski trails in winter.
A bit more removed, yet just a few minutes by car from Beaver Creek and Vail, the quiet city of Edwards offers its scenic Riverwalk dotted with boutique shops, a world-class spa, and upscale dining at exquisite bistros and wine bars. Fresh waters, like the nearby Eagle River, will delight fisherman and entice kayakers, rafters and floaters alike. In the summer, go paddle boarding on Nottingham Lake and don't miss the largest fireworks display over the Colorado Rockies.
About 25 miles further west, the small town of Gypsum occupies a prime spot right in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. From a vacation home surrounded by Red Mountain and Tenmile Peak, explore miles and miles of off-roading, hiking and biking trails, and cross-country and snowshoeing the backcountry in winter.
Choose your perfect vacation rental from our large selection of Vail Valley ski rentals - including homes, cabins, and condos - and discover how each of these charming mountain towns offer its own vantage point and unique access to the bountiful recreation activities throughout the White River National Forest that awaits each season.
