To Our Past & Returning Guests,

Thank you for being so thoughtful, complimentary, interesting, considerate, fun and nice. You are simply the best! We have sincerely appreciated your kindness, willingness to give suggestions, and the meticulous manner in which you have cared for the property. All our gratitude to you.

Best wishes always,

Sally & Tom

To Our Future Guests,

This is an uncommon property in terms of aesthetics, comfort, and simple elegance. Consider this your homeaway retreat in the Rocky Mountains.

Throughout the home are items not expected--a reclaimed barn wood floor (wood was transported from upstate NY), handmade reclaimed wood furniture, an assortment of wool hand knotted oriental rugs & Karastan wool accent rugs, hand crafted and/or carved furniture, floral arrangements, fine linens--duvets, shams, throws, quilts--and one of a kind decorator items collected over a period of years. It is not a cookie cutter platinum rated rental.

We, in part, express our artistic talents through our home environment.

Our best regards always,

Sally & Tom

***Always Reach for Life's Brass Ring--It Just May Be There for You***

We bought in the Avon area because our family (now numbering 14 including children, spouses, and grandchildren) loves outdoor activities in the summer and winter. The females of our family find the shopping in Vail and Beaver Creek always entertaining and we all find the selection of local watering holes or upscale restaurants on special occasions unparalleled anywhere. For us it is a place for the family to relax, follow their own individual pursuits during the day and enjoy each others company in the time after.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2003

Avon and Canyon Run in particular offers beautiful mountain views, the rush of the Eagle river, and convenient amenities without the high prices associated with Vail and Beaver Creek. The activities of these higher priced areas are however easily and quickly accessible if one so desires.

Our grandchildren really enjoy the waterpark in summer and the BC magic carpet in winter.

You will feel as though you are guests--friends of the owners of this deluxe and rare town home.

Luxurious-Convenient-Immaculate!!! Sally has thought of Everything.

It was an absolute delight making the arrangements with Sally. We had high hopes and they were met. A very convenient location, everything you'd ever need(games, batteries, groceries, maps, office supplies, unlimited linens, toiletries, pots, pans, dishes, all kitchen needs-even wine openers!) I thought I was organized - Sally takes it to another level. So much more than you get with a hotel stay. Each room(very private) could be the Master Suite. We are well travelled and would highly recommend this property. If all VRBO properties were like this we'd never stay at another hotel.

Owner's Response: Hi Polly,
Thank you so much Polly. I loved our email conversations. Your family is so optimistic and fun loving and caring. Thank you for being so very respectful of my property and for being immaculate.
Nothing makes me happier than seeing families be all together. How wonderful to have your children with you!
I strive to have everything organized and the basic supplies handy so that my guests have more time to enjoy the short amount of time that they have. No matter if the stay of my guests is four days or two weeks, the time just flies by. :)
All my best wishes to you and yours always,
Sally

A True Delight!!

Three sisters and their spouses enjoyed a wonderful week skiing and reminiscing at this beautifully decorated and maintained condo. It's always a pleasnt surprise when the online pictures of a property accurately reflect what you see when you open the front door. The owner was most gracious and worked to meet our every need - even using hypo-allergenic laundry products to make certain we were comfortable. A welcome tray with special little "goodies" greeted us on our arrival! The kitchen is very well-equipped. The crock pot was great to start something warm and easy for dinner before we left for the ski slopes. The location is within walking distance to the gondola that goes to the slopes. Convenient parking is very limited in the town so the two parking spaces for the condo are especially appreciated when guests are arriving in separate cars from different locations. We would definitely stay at this condo again when skiing at Beaver Creek!

Owner's Response: Hi Linda,
Thank you so much for the very thoughtful review. I so much enjoyed hearing from your family during your stay and I am so eager for you siblings and your hubbies to return.
Glad your family made great use of the generous parking. Yes, it is rare to have that luxury. So happy that you enjoyed the attached garage in addition.
Wishing you and yours the best of health and happiness,
Sally

Fantastic stay for our family in a luxurious condo; a great stay!

We were a party of six that stayed here for 4 nights in February. When we arrived the condo was in perfect condition with a very nice welcome basket. The kitchen had everything needed for cooking and an incredible number of extras as well.

The condo itself was beautifully decorated.and everything was in great shape.As described, this place has lots of little extras, with very high quality bedding and pillows etc. The barnwood floor in the kitchen is wonderful.

As advertised, the Starbucks and bakery are only minutes away. We did walk to the gondola one day which is doable. Note that there are a number of steps to negotiate down to the entrance. My dad who is was OK with these but good to know

I have stayed in quite a few owner owned condos and this one is certainly the finest i have stayed at.

Thanks Sally!

Owner's Response: Hi Charles,
I am so pleased to receive your review. Thank you for bringing your lovely family with your three darling young children all the way from my mother's homeland of Sweden! I really loved that your dear father could also join you and your beautiful family in your winter mountain adventure! I know how much you enjoyed and cherished his presence!
So many families are separated by great distances so being all together is so special and memorable. I shall look forward to your return in a few years.
Until then my very best wishes to you and yours always,
Sally

Pristine and Serene By The Stream

I stayed here solo for 5 nights in early April at the end of the ski season. I was in the area for work, calling on local clients for several days and then skiing in Vail and Beaver Creek on the weekend. The accommodations were exactly what I wanted. Relaxing, luxurious and clean. And the location couldn't be better. It's a bright corner, end unit which gets full sun all day. And the beautiful river - right in front of the unit - was a welcome plus. I saw fly fishermen in the river on several mornings. I am a serious cook and made most of my own food on this trip. I was very impressed with the the quality of the cookware and kitchen items in general. The kitchen is easy to use, well layed out and clean as a whistle.

The unit is divided into 3 sections. Lower downstairs section is 2 very nice BD and 2 BA and a shared sitting area. Doors of the lower bedrooms open directly to the grassy/snowy banks of the river. The downstairs rooms aren't as light/bright as the upstairs, but have big windows and great views regardless. I used only the main level and the upper garage level. There is a very comfortable bedroom on the main floor. I suspect it was originally intended as an office, but the owners have made it a cozy, private queen bed suite complete with its own bathroom. All the linens were of a very high quality. The nice bathroom was clean and all equipment worked well. The furniture and decoration of the home is all very tasteful and of a very high quality - in a mountain lodge, classic Americana style. It's the sort of decor you find in the grand mountain lodge resorts. Huge flat screen TVs were in every BD, with a super sized screen in the living room. Secure, password protected WIFI internet was fast and easy to use. Still, I would have preferred a hard line coming out of the main router to connect directly via ethernet. I Skyped and FaceTimed with my family back home several times. Access speed was good. There were neighbors above and to the side, but I only heard occasional footsteps or a loud laugh here and there. Overall, the unit was surprisingly quiet whenever I was home. Parking was easy. Garage was spotless.

My family and I have stayed in VRBO houses, apts and condos all over the US. This was one of the nicest, cleanest best organized I have ever stayed in. All shopping is nearby. Easy ski access too. And though my wife wasn't with me on this trip, I know that she would have been right at home with the cleanliness and freshness of the home.

Owner's Response: Peter,
If you have had the opportunity to read my other reviews, you will be aware of how blessed I have been! You are a true blessing as have been my previous guests. My riverfront home was left in immaculate condition by solo you!
You are a treasure as is your family and fine family wines which your Napa Winery has so uniquely and scientifically created for the finest establishments in the world! I am so proud to have had you as my guest!
Hope that one day you and your wife will visit again for fun, adventure and rejuvenation along the riverfront.
My very best wishes always Peter to you and yours,
Sally

We stayed in Sally's home in Avon for a week in Februay and truly enjoyed our stay. Our family of two adults and two small kids has ample room. The house had everything we needed, was extremely well furnished with high quality goods, a short walk into town and drive to Beaver Creek. The highest compliment I can pay it is that we would return again in an instant and would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks Sally!

Owner's Response: You are welcome Ken! Please say "hi" to Fiona and a hug for the children.
I loved having your family stay. Little children are so very cute, precious and fun. Actually I offer the baby and toddler equipment to make traveling with very young children much easier and enjoyable.
Looking forward to your return. :)
My best wishes always,
Sally
