The Vail Ski Chalet offers a home away from home. On a very private, three-quarter acre, wooded lot that offers spectacular mountain views and stargazing from our private hot tub. A gas fireplace with a steam room shower, and a two person jacuzzi add to the luxury of the master suite. The Family room with its vaulted ceilings and stone woodburning fireplace offer a relaxing venue to entertain and congregate. The Dining room with its staghorn chandelier seats ten. In Oct. 2010 we added a 55' SONY flat screen over the the fire place with surround sound. The Kitchen and Laundry room are also brand new with all new appliances and fixtures!
Everything you could possibly need is here, a breadmaker? Yes! a cappuccino, latte machine? Yes! High Speed internet, Yes. Over 100 movies in our video library, so no need to rent one. Year round access to a gas grill for barbecuing. We would be delighted to set up our twelve foot Christmas tree for you to enjoy for the holiday season as well. The master bedroom has a king size sleigh bed, two of the bedrooms have queens and the forth bedroom has 2 fulls and a twin size bed great for kids!In the fall of 2009 the bathroom were completely renevated for luxurious comfort for all.
COMFORT - COZY - QUALITY - VALUE - IT IS ALL HERE!

Ralph and Stephanie Yarusso, we enjoy spending family time with our 6 children in Vail and sharing our home with guests from all over the world
Ralph Yarusso purchased this chalet in 1994
It's the perfect getaway for family and friends. It's private yet very close to all of the excitement that Vail has to offer. A free shuttle makes is simple to go into the village and back and our yard is perfect for summer activities. We love our mountain home and we love to share it with others. We consider our guests liken family and hope to make their visit special in every way.
Peace and quiet and yet just a few minutes from the exciting village of Vail. Star gazing in our hot tub is something you will never forget. All of the amenities you need are here for a terrific and comfortable vacation.
Better Than Ever!!!
I recently stayed at the Vail Ski Chalet for the third year in a row, and I must say, the owners did an excellent job with upgrades. First, the completely remodeled kitchen added all new appliances and granite, along with new cabinets. They even upgraded the washer and dryer room with new cabinets and new HE appliances. New this year as well was the 55 inch flat HD tv over the fireplace with surround sound! I still enjoyed the outside jacuzzi and upstairs master sauna steam shower, but loved the openness of the upgraded main floor. Looking forward to next year already!

Loved the house. It really is in a great location. One block to the bus stop , 20 minutes to the slopes. The wood burning stove us a perfect start to the morning. Hard to beat a warm fire and hot coffee.
Only two hangups were, 1 the hot tub wasn't work when we first got there, but a phone call to the owner and he had it fixed within a couple hours. The only other thing I would say is be careful on the indoor stairs. They are a little bit slick. Especially the bottom couple steps. Most people from our group slipped there.
Meals were super easy. Very well prepared kitchen. Beds were super comfy. Plenty of room for 8 adults and 3 kids. Overall, we had a fantastic time and will most likely be returning to see the Yarusso Chalet again!! Highly recommended place for anyone headed to vail!
My husband and I totally enjoyed this home! Very comfortable, open living area, great kitchen, big hot tub, etc. The fireplace is great to relax in front of after a day of skiing. The Gore Creek path is wonderful for dog walking - our dogs loved it (we did, too!). The bus is very convenient, which is great, as the parking adds up over a month's time! Ralph, the owner, is very responsive and sends along great links for the 'happenings' over at Vail Village, etc. We would rent this home again - definitely!
Christmas in Vail - accommodations worked out perfect for our 2 families, 2 kids each who shared a room. Also it was great having a main floor bed and bath especially since my sister in law had broken her ankle. Kitchen was great for all of us to gather around for holiday festivities. Played games by the fire and enjoyed the large dining table. Walk to the shuttle was not bad - snow was fantastic for this time of year. Thanks for allowing us to share your home.
This place is by far the best place I've stayed in Vail. The moment you walk in you know you're "home". From the breath taking views, to the hot-tub, to the updated kitchen/bathrooms, to huge windows, this place has everything to offer. We've stayed here a few times and it's the perfect place to reconnect with friends and family. Everything is right at your figure tips... just walk to the bus and...snap you're in Vail Village. After a long day of skiing there's nothing like the hot tub and a wood burning fireplace. Also, if you have people that like the night life in Vail, it's great - you can just jump on the bus and no need to worry about driving. I would highly recommend this home to anyone.
My wife and I are surprised at the review written below. We had the complete opposite experience at the 47322 rental and I believe we were there the week before the renters below. This was our second stay at this rental. Our first stay was 17 years ago on our wedding honeymoon. We thought it would be a fun experience to bring our kids back with us years later. To our surprise there were many improvements done to the house. A completely new kitchen that was beautiful, all the bathrooms seems to be redone as well. Coming from New Jersey it was a huge pleasure to have the windows open with NO screens allowing fresh air to flow through the house. There were no bugs so having the windows open was a rare but joyful experience for us. Wife and I stayed in the master bedroom and showered without ever fearing of neighbors being able to look in. The hot tub on the back deck was new and was fun for the whole family. We did not find the house dirty at all. All bedrooms and bathroom were neat. Overall we had a great experience and wonderful family vacation. We look forward to returning and our only hopes are not to wait as long to boo with this rental again.
100% disappointed. Living room Furniture is shot, broken down and vinyl/leather peeling. Had to cover with sheets. Screens missing throughout the house, so fresh air non existent. No vents nor operating windows in baths - code violation and unpleasant. No GFI in main floor bath, code violation and dangerous. 6" gas line exposed in master bedroom is a dangerous tripping hazard and should be mitigated immediately: code violation. Until this is fixed, this house should not be rented. The entire house is dirty and dripping in cob webs and layers of dust, mouse droppings, etc. Old stove/fireplace left on upper deck. Master bath fixtures so old and corroded they were unusable, very dark and no operating windows, nor vents. Had to move to secondary bedroom, where the shower had a window pane in it with no window covering or obscure glass; thus neighbors can see one showering. Patio door is difficult to operate, old and has only a small chain for security, no operating lock. In general this home is run down and in Shameful condition for $. Left early. Trip ruined. Felt ripped off. Not worth money we spent. Used vrbo with great results in past, but, this makes us very worried about using vrbo again as this home was so poor. I believe vrbo will not publish this review so I will contact the appropriate agencies regarding the exposed gas line and other code violations. No unsuspecting families should have to deal with and pay for a vacation home that is dirty, disgusting and dangerous. Any home listed on vrbo should be, at a minimum, held to Colorado building codes.
