About Sharon & Rick

I was born and raised in a suburb of Charlotte, NC and was living in Wilmington, NC when I was invited to a girls weekend get-away to Vail in 1993. I met my husband Rick in the Red Lion the first day of that trip (blissful ever since!). Rick was living in Wisconsin at the time, so we dated long-distance for a year and a half. The following year he proposed to me at the top of the Mountain Top Express lift (4) overlooking Sun Up Bowl, China Bowl, and Blue Sky Basin with a photographer in-tow. I said 'yes' and moved to the Midwest to start our new life together (I'm still not certain that leaving a coastal community for the Midwest was the best idea :-). Needless to say, Vail is truly a magical place for us. Our family escapes our day jobs for Vail as often as we can.

Owning a place in Vail was a dream of ours since the day we met. Now that we have a place to call our own, we are happy to share our Vail home with you. We currently live in a Minneapolis suburb where Rick is an executive with an employee benefits administration firm and I am the director of a large preschool.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We hope that you enjoy our place as much as we do and we welcome you back on your next visit to the Vail Valley.

Why Sharon & Rick chose Lion Square Lodge

Lion Square Lodge is so close to all that Vail has to offer. The ski-in/ski-out convenience and Lionshead Village steps from the door makes this the perfect place to be, winter or summer. Lion Square Lodge has so many amenities which makes staying here incredibly easy and convenient. Unlike several ski-in/ski-out places, Lion Square Lodge North Residences are very quiet during the evenings which makes it the perfect place for families and couples looking for a romantic get-away.

Without hesitation, a condo I'd recommend to my family & friends!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for better accommodations and hospitality. Rick and Sharon's immediate responses and tips helped us plan a smooth and fun trip. They thought of every detail for our ski activities/school and our stay, which made us feel at home.

The condo was very clean, convenient, and cozy. An inviting place to return to after exciting (and exhausting) days of skiing!

---Rick and Sharon, please know we are grateful to have such priceless memories for our family, as we fell in love with Vail. We can't wait to come back to your getaway.

We love staying at Rick and Sharon's place. Mathis is our second time and we will be regulars from now on. The place is decorated beautifully and provides all the comforts of home. We love the big screen tv and sound bar...we watched Netflix every night! Also, Rick and Sharon are fabulous owners. The home is immaculate, with great bedding, big, thirsty towels and a stocked kitchen. They also provided great advice on "where to go" and a"what to do."

Tremendous Rental

  • 5 of 5

Had a few buddies fly in for a long weekend in Vail. Great location in the heart of Lionshead. We ended up having five and were very comfortable. 286 was spotless with great amenities and views of the slopes. Eagle Bahn Gondola right around the corner...literally. Private hot tub and underground parking. Friendly staff at both the counter and rental shop (those guys are really cool). Rick (the owner) is/was very punctual and the follow-up was topnotch. We'll be back.

Wonderful Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 9 year-old son and I loved our stay at unit 286 in the North Tower@ Lionsquare Lodge. The accommodations could not have been lovelier (and spotless!). It was a large condo with more than enough room for the 3 of us. We loved the fact that there are two bathrooms. It came fully equipped with extra towels, humidifiers and a fully stocked kitchen. Major points for the charging stations for ipads and iphones on the nightstands in the bedroom. The views were fantastic and the proximity to the gondola could not be beat. My son enjoyed the cookies and hot chocolate and we all enjoyed the hot tub at the end of the day. The owners were so responsive and provided loads of information prior to our visit. The Spa at the Arrabelle was across the street and was a nice treat after exhausting ourselves on the slopes. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone who wants the perfect choice in accommodations in Vail/Lionshead!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice vacation. The home was equipped nicely and felt like a home. It is walking distance ( around the corner ) to the Village which includes restaurants, ski slopes, ski shops, ice skating rink, general & liquor store, etc.... Closets were full of extra blankets and pillows, humidifiers, etc... Even got to park in a private garage. Would recommend to anyone. Owners sent information emails before and during stay with maps so we could easily navigate through our entire stay. Thank you !
