Avon House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
This stunning streamside getaway offers all the amenities you would expect from a luxury retreat coupled with the warmth and coziness of a romantic, mountain ski lodge. When you're curled up in a leather armchair by the fire with a movie on the flat-screen cable TV, heading out for a day on the slopes, or relaxing under the stars in the private 10-person hot tub, you'll know just what we mean.
And you will appreciate that hot tub! Tucked away in the charming village of Avon, the home is perfectly situated for year-round outdoor adventure. With Beaver Creek's world-class ski resort less than a mile from your door, winter weekends will be full of action. In the warmer months, from its perch on a private, pristine section of the Eagle River, the home is a dream retreat for fly fishermen. Additionally, Gore Creek is just minutes away, and the Colorado, Roaring Fork, and Yampa Rivers all within easy reach for anglers and kayakers as well (not to mention hikers, bikers, and golfers).
Once you arrive at your private mountain getaway, though, you may not want to leave the house! The spacious living and dining room has plenty of room for your whole group to gather together and socialize. Beautiful rugs top polished hardwood floors, with handsome seating, the stone fireplace, a flat-screen TV with cable and DVD player, and a posh poker table for cards and board games.
Amateur gourmets will love preparing meals in the chef's kitchen. It has been recently updated, complete with stainless steel appliances, gorgeous marble countertops, and the cookware, utensils, dishes, gadgets, and all-important dishwasher that make serving a large group a breeze. The dining table is adjacent to the kitchen, and seats eight comfortably.
Ten people, indeed, is just the right number of guests for this gorgeous home! There are three bedrooms and an open sleeping loft, and sharing the space is wonderfully easy with four beautifully appointed full bathrooms and a washer/dryer to keep up with laundry and wet outdoor gear.
The master suite is sunny and spacious, with a lovely king-sized bed and another flat-screen for watching a bit of TV before bed. The master bath has a glass-walled shower and separate soaking tub, perfect for a bit of private relaxation for a busy host! Two more bedrooms have queen beds and their own TVs, so additional couples can enjoy their own luxurious accommodations as well. Up in the loft, two twin beds and a full-sized bed are lined under the gently sloping ceilings for younger guests or well-acquainted friends.
Visit in winter and you will love this home's super convenient location less than a mile from Beaver Creek Resort! With its family-friendly environment, 25 ski lifts, and 1,832 skiable acres, it will be hard to find a better way to spend the day, other than flying down the slopes. You can even ice skate in the center of Beaver Creek Village. Around the holidays in December, there's also the annual Winterfest at the resort, featuring parades, winter characters, figure skating performances and more.
In addition to downhill skiing and snow boarding, the Nordic Sports Center offers a complete rental shop. One of Beaver Creek's best kept secrets, McCoy Park, is also right there and boasts over 32 kilometers of groomed and rustic trails for an afternoon of cross country skiing and snowshoeing fun. Nestled between Beaver Creek and Bachelor Gulch villages, McCoy Park also features spectacular, scenic views of three mountain ranges. And if you want to spread the adventure out a bit more, the slopes of world-famous Vail are only a 15 minute drive or shuttle ride away.
In warmer weather, you may wish to step out the sliding glass door to the patio and dine in the fresh air. Host an afternoon barbecue on the gas grill, roast marshmallows over the open fire pit, or enjoy a luxurious soak in the ten-person hot tub. If you prefer to head out for a night on the town, you'll find dozens of wonderful restaurants, bistros, pubs, and wine bars in the Beaver Creek/Avon area (and wireless Internet is provided for browsing reviews before you leave!).
This amazing ski getaway will not disappoint. Whether you hope to fill your days with skiing, snowboarding, shopping, fine dining, hiking, cycling, fishing, kayaking, or simply lounging by a cozy fire on a snowy afternoon, there is no better spot in Vail Valley than this luxury lodge retreat!
