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 Vail

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.

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 !

We loved our visit to Lion Square Lodge. The unit was as beautiful as the online pictures and the location rocked!! My husband and our four teenage children had a great time and really appreciated all the provided "extra's" that came with the condo.... like games and Netflix for our family time. The location is great right in the heart of the square and we loved the gondola being so close! Everyone at the lodge was accommodating and kind. I was under the weather and the luxury bedding, fireplace and beautiful mountain view was all I needed on my day off skiing!! Can't think of anything negative.... We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Nancy. We are so happy that your family enjoyed our place and Lion Square Lodge! So sorry to hear that you were a bit under the weather. It sounds like you only took one day off, so hopefully you were able to ski during much of your time. Thanks again for choosing our place. Hope to work with you again on your next trip to Vail.

Another great stay at Lion Square Lodge!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay over Christmas. I come to Vail every year and stay at Lion Square Lodge with my wife and two kids. It is a perfect place to stay in terms of location, quality of units, hot tub and heated pool slope side and overall services provided at the facility.

Rick was great to deal with and very responsive. The unit is exactly as the pictures and description on the website and is in excellent condition.

We had great weather during our short stay...good snow before and during our stay. Thank you Rick for sharing your place with us and Happy New Year! Best wishes for more snow in the new year. We plan to visit next year and look forward to staying here again.

Thank you!
