Vail Chalet Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, one bath, sleeps 1-4 people

Vail best kept secret private retreat.

This is the perfect romantic getaway, or simply if you are looking for a quiet and serene place to enjoy your vacation and/or even for seclusion for silent meditation retreat. Le refuge is surrounded by beautiful trees, and sits by the Gold Medal Gore Creek. There is off street parking available. This is a lock off apartment in a private chalet. You have your own entrance with about 900 square feet of space. The bedrooms have one queen size and one king size bed with Tempurpedic mattresses. There is a dining room, one bathroom, a wood burning stove in the cozy living room, a big screen TV, wireless internet access, and a modern fully appointed kitchen with granite counter tops.

Our unique retreat offers a lovely and cozy experience, it is very clean. You will feel home away from home.

.

If you are interested in staying healthy while away from home, we do offer private restorative yoga lesson, guidded mindfulness meditation, massage therapy and organic prepared meals. It is really quiet and there are many places on the property for you to enjoy the sun, the trees, the soothing sound of the creek. You will sleep like a log! Hammocks await for you by the creek for a late afternoon nap!

I fell in love with the house because it is on the Gore creek and surrounded by beautiful old trees. Our street dead ends so there is not a lot of traffic. If you want to be off the beaten path, then Intermountain is the place, yet it is close to the stores and restaurants, parks and bike path, hiking trails.

Vail is a worldwide vacation destination. I love cultural diversity here which attracts talents from all over the world , outdoor concerts, musical ,visual, culinary arts, Teva games, and more keeps our town rocking all summer long . The bravo series brings in world class talent, as well as the International dance festival, just to name a few.Vail farmers market on Sundays in the summer is an attraction too! There is always something fun and interesting, going on...

.During winter ,the skiing is amazing with great powder snow.

Never bored enjoying life no matter what season it is.

A quite comfy retreat

  • 5 of 5
Nathalie wants your stay to be comfortable and ours was. Plenty of room for 4. The kitchen was well-stocked for cooking breakfast and dinner. The tempurpedic mattresses on the beds were a treat. The ipod dock let us have our music with us. We took advantage of a massage and it was delightful - and, located just up the stairs from the apartment. The wood burning stove came in handy during the evening. The unit is very clean and everything was well maintained. A very cozy unit for a good price. We will return.

Awesome Mountain Retreat!

Wish I could give 10 stars! Everything was perfect. Nathalie makes the difference. It is close to the bus stop, easy to get to from the I-70, easy access to the local establishments. The property was very clean and well-maintained. You cannot go wrong.

Just Right, easy and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5
A safe and comfortable place to spend the week. We had everything we could have wanted including Yoga, meditation,and a nap in the hammock. The well stocked kitchen and large fridge were great. Nathalie was helpful and available if we needed her, but most of the time we felt as if we had the place to ourselves. Loved being in a neighborhood instead of in a big stack of condos.

If I close my eyes I can still hear the rushing creek and taste the crisp mountain air. Some places just make the cells in my body feel happy. This is one of them.

Vail Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Nathalie's "Le Refuge" far surpassed all our expectations. A terrific value for anyone looking for a place to stay in Vail. The bast part was our hostess, Nathalie, who lives upstairs. She truly made us feel at home.
The place was clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was fully equiped, even including spices. There is a wood stove complete with wood to burn.
We were a little concerned that the location is West Vail might be too far off the beaten path, but that was not the case at all. Its just a short walk to the shuttle stop which runs every 15 minutes and stops at both Lionshead and Vail Village.
We would definitely recommend this HomeAway, and would stay here again on a future trip to Vail

Perfect Vail retreat + an absolutely amazing host!

  • 5 of 5
This is the best way to experience a "real Colorado" Vail vacation. The immaculate property itself is in a fantastic location right next to the river. The bed and furniture were also very comfortable, but the best thing was the host Nathalie herself. Not only was she extremely helpful with information about the area... but she also went above and beyond in all ways to becoming my friend. She prepared many organic farmers market meals that she shared with me and her friends, helping me to feel right at home in Vail. Also, a massage from Nathalie really completes any vacation at Le Refuge. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Vail. Personally, I can't wait to come back and stay at Nathalie's again!
