Vail is a year-round destination for relaxation and fun, best known originally for its world-class skiing. But, as many have found, there’s nothing like summer and fall in the mountains -- sunny, warm days for outdoor activities and cool nights for sleeping. Vail locals say “…winter is why we came – but summer is why we stayed!”

About Owners - Jan and Allen Gerstenberger
Skiing and an active outdoor lifestyle drew us both to the Vail area in the 70‘s where we met, and then married and built the home in the early 80’s. Both our daughters have grown up with 'The Vail House' as their base for learning to ski, board, camp, hike and love life. Some of our favorite family times have been at the Vail House: our base for backpacking, hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing; playing games in front of the crackling fire; having Thanksgiving with friends; relaxing on the patio beneath aspens, and savoring the warm days and cool nights of summer. We also enjoy exploring the world through our travels.
Owners - Jan and Allen Gerstenberger purchased this house in 1982
Why Owners - Jan and Allen Gerstenberger chose Vail
Only a mile from town with the peacefulness of a private neighborhood makes our location ideal. The beauty of the Rocky Mountains, the friendly community of Vail, the extensive cultural events, and the active lifestyle of the residents and guests make this one of the most enjoyable and stimulating settings imaginable. A full service community with a small, personal feeling.
What makes this house unique
Views, vistas, and peacefulness. Our home has a stunning site that borders US Forest Service property on the mountain side, and expansive window walls bring in the views and light. It is a unique combination of a private mountain setting with easy access to a wide range of resort and community facilities. A home, not just a rental property, which we invite you to enjoy for yourselves.
