About Ruth Ann

We bought the house for the ski and fishing location on the Gore Creek and EASY ACCESS to Chair #20 lift. (15 MINUTES AND YOU ARE AT THE TOP OF VAIL MOUNTAIN AT EAGLE'S NEST)

No lift lines, valet your skis if you want, Charter Sports is right at our Chair Lift #20. You can rent all your ski equipment rentals, also Valet your skis FREE etc.

Ski to our street, Westhaven Circle and 5 minute walk back to the house, with NO HILLS to climb!

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO BE REALLY SPOILED, I provide a "Daily Parking Pass" right next to the Ski Lift! Great for little ones or those who don't want to walk anywhere!

Aria Spa & Fitness Club is included with this rental house. The Resort and Spa are just 5 minute walk from the house. Discounts on Spa visits and Atwater Restaurant are included. It is so easy for our guests to come and go from the house to Chair # 20 or skiing down to the house, spa, shopping etc without someone having to be there to let them in. We have easy access without using house keys.

We love spending our time between Florida and Colorado, living on the Gore Creek, just steps to Chair #20 lift, is the best of both Winter/Summer and Fall.

Ruth Ann purchased this house in 1999

Why Ruth Ann chose Westhaven

The LOCATION IS GREAT for skiers, fly fishers, multiple families! CME will bring you right to the door and pick you up.

If you didn't want to rent vehicles, also, you can ride Hotel Shuttles from Lobby to other villages and return (they run until mid-night) or after dinner, take a short taxi ride back to the house.

We can provide grocery shopping,daily housekeeping. Being close to everything but not having to deal with the big or loud crowds.

We are closer to Chair Lift #20 than other places PLUS we have ski rentals, ski valet and ticket office all together and we don't have to waste any time waiting in ski lines! (It's like having our OWN private ski lift!) Charter Sports is right there to rent skis/valet or tune your skis.

Buy your lift tickets right at the base of the lift. Getting to the top of Eagle's Nest is one easy 'catwalk green' to Chair #26 which (parallels the Gondola to top of mountain) Once you arrive, you don't even have to drive again until you're ready to leave. Our guests can come and go off the mountain with ease.

The Vail Cascade Resort offers us the benefits of a resort with our Aria Athletic Club & Spa membership, you get all the benefits plus discounts on Spa, dining/lounge but the privacy of staying in a large private home with plenty of space for multiple families.

The views are breathtaking of the mountains and especially being on the Gore Creek. We love being on the creek, the sights and sounds are fantastic. We are the only home in our area that is available for rent on the Gore Creek next to Chair #20 lift and with a large private back yard for play and fishing. This is beautiful neighborhood of multi-million dollar homes. Whether skiing, fishing or coming to Vail for 'Events', having fun especially with multiple families, this house will definitely fit your needs!

What makes this house unique

Aria Spa & Athletic Club membership, you can enjoy all the benefits including pools, spas, tennis, best-rated Fitness Club and many activities. Charter Sports Shop rents all ski equipment and summers, they rent bicycles etc. They are located in the Cascade Resort building. Our Front Patio, enjoy relaxing listening to sounds of the Fountain and River in the background. Last May, we had a Moose visit us across the street from our property. Back patios and decks, enjoy the breathtaking views of the mountains and river or in summers, go down and enjoy fly fishing, games etc in our large private back yard. Weber Natural Gas grill on back kitchen deck, grill to your heart's desire. Living room deck has Patio Furniture and a Bench Swing and Stone Tables and Patio Heater, for the cool nights. Hot Tub Spa is wonderful to enjoy any time of the year, while enjoying the sounds of the river and the views. For health minded guests, enjoy the Far Infarred Sauna, treadmill and stationary bike, filtered water dispenser and vitamix. Private Chef available for dine-in meals. Daily cleaning service available on request - Mid-week cleaning IS included in nightly rate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a surprise to have my whole family with me to celebrate my 65th Birthday!" We enjoyed your lovely home. The beds were so comfortable, you don't want to get up in the morning! I will also remember the great meals and the "roast" my kids did to me! Your home provided us with a perfect weekend celebration!

Hope to come back again real soon!

Fabulous vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of six adults and 5 children. The house was absolutely beautiful. It was roomy, bright, airy and very comfortable . the kitchen was equipped with everything you could want or need . It is located a short walk away from the resort where a shuttle can take you to Lionshead or Vail Village. The owner, Rutj Ann, was very helpful and was only a call away to answer any questions or give suggestions. I have rented other homes in the past and this is, by far, the very best place for a large family. It was a perfect vacation. I hope to return again !

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We gathered at this exceptional home in early September, 2014, for a large family gathering. Everything there exceeded our expectations. The views, creekside seating, balconies, patios, beautifully decorated and appointed interior, comfortable bedrooms, accommodations for small children like crib, high chair,etc., and a fantastic kitchen with supplemental provisions and everything to prepare and serve the most elegant meals. Having access to Vail Cascade Resort & Spa was a greatly appreciated bonus and just a 5 minute walk. The resort has an outdoor heated infinity pool that the whole family could enjoy. Access to Aria Fitness center is also included. That was the largest and best equipped center I've ever seen. Conveniently, the resort has free shuttle service to Lionshead and Vail Village. The bike path starts just across the creek. The house and location made for the very best family event we could have imagined. We all look forward to returning.

FAB U LOUS home and location !!

  • 5 of 5

We go to Vail every summer for a family vaca. It's important for us to come together as a family and spend quality time together. We like staying in private homes with all the comforts of home. We couldn't of picked a better home to stay in this summer! The home and location was perfect. Thanks to being sooo close to the bike path along Gore Creek we had 3 teenagers that could come and go to town. All 6 of us were on our mountian bikes a lot. The bike path made it very convenient to get to the mountain to mountain bike. The free Cascade shuttle wasn't too bad to have at our disposal either.

The kitchen was very well stocked with higher end applicances and kitchen "gear" nice to have after renting some houses that just get by with what seems like garage sale finds. The house was very comfortable (including the beds!). Everything about this rental was fantastic!! We will be back! Ruth Ann was more than accomodating! Thank you again Ruth Ann!! :)

P.S. Highly recommend the personal chef too!! YUM YUM

Wonderful place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a special place to celebrate our 50th anniversary. We were 10 in all, 3 couples and 4 children ranging in age from 11-17. We couldn't have found a nicer, more helpful owner than Ruth Ann. Both before and during the visit, she responded immediately to our questions and contributed so much more to make our stay a good one.

We found all the positives describing this house and the pictures, accurate. Nicely decorated with quality furnishings in all the rooms. Although a duplex, it's very private with a beautiful view. Everyone enjoyed sitting on the deck, listening to the sounds of Gore Creek below and watching the hummingbirds come to the feeders--so relaxing!! The kitchen is amazingly well equipped, again with high quality things and stocked with spices, condiments, and so many extras we didn't have to buy. The bathrooms were also well supplied with hand and bath soaps, tissues, hair dryers, etc. Thanks to Irma and her family for doing such a good job maintaining the house, including a middle of the week refresh of clean towels and sheets.

We found the location perfect for walking or biking into the Villages and using the facilities at Cascade Resort, yet in a very quiet, private setting. The children enjoyed playing around the Creek or just sitting by the water reading. There are so many activities available in the Vail area in the summer. We did mountain biking and hiking (phenomenal views), horseback riding, the skateboard park in the Village, ziplines at Zipline Adventures (children's favorite), the pool at Cascade, walking thru the Betty Ford Gardens, and enjoying the hot tub on the deck. Since this was our first time in Colorado, we were delighted with the cool, clean air, intense blue skies and lack of flying insects.

Also as an FYI, because of a biking mishap on the mountain, we found the medical facilities to be excellent. We were very appreciative of the hospital staff and responders who were all very efficient and caring.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house, and would love to be back there again.

BEST HOUSE IN VAIL!! Great Amenities and location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing week in Vail on a family vacation! We could not have asked for a better house to stay at for our group of 11 adults. The house was perfect for our big group dinners, tv time on the couches, time spent outside on the beautiful balcony and more! Ruth Ann was so accommodating leading up to the trip and has the house completely stocked with everything we could possibly need. The location of the house was great; we walked into Lionshead and Vail Village every day, we were able to use the pool/gym at the Cascade Hotel daily and we were only minutes from many activities (tennis courts, bike rentals, getting onto Vail mountain to hike). The highlights of our trip were; my brother Rob proposed to his girlfriend in the Vail gardens, our many hikes (Booth Falls, Hanging Lake, Vail Mountain), bike rentals, family tennis tournament, big family dinners each night and all of our leisurely walks into town! I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to stay in Vail and I know we will definitely be back!
