Available for a vacation week, month, or longer (no short term stays), and just 15 minutes from the world class resort of Vail, 5 from Beaver Creek and Arrowhead, Unit 1 at the Exception is one of the area's beautiful properties. You have waited a long time for your vacation - make it a special one here! Located within a small enclave of homes, The Exception is unique to the Eagle-Vail area.

With 4000 square feet of living space, 4 spacious bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and a loft we can comfortably accommodate 12-13 people. Ideal for gatherings of all kinds; family reunions, a friends ski vacation or a corporate retreat. In the summer, swim in the outdoor pool or play a game of tennis or basketball on the outdoor court. Head out for a picnic, climb a mountain from your front door, golf or fish - there's no end to the possibilities. After an energetic winter day of skiing or snowboarding, relax in our private Hot Springs Spa. Entertain family and friends in the warm and inviting atmosphere. Light a fire in the fireplace, cook a gourmet meal in the fully stocked kitchen and enjoy the company of the ones you love.
The Main Floor has 10' ceilings with exposed beams and is decorated in a Western Contemporary style. The large living room area is centered on the wood burning stone fireplace, giving warmth to all your end of the day activities. Sink into the comfortable furnishings and relax by the fire, or watch your favorite TV show or movie. Just around the corner is a fully equipped gourmet kitchen which includes granite slab countertops, top of the line stainless appliances, all essential cookware and serving items, dishes and utensils included. A breakfast island (seats 3) followed by a tremendous dining room table (seats 8) enhances the flow of larger gatherings. For those who prefer to grill outdoors, you may step out on the wrap-around deck and prepare the evening meal on the natural gas grill. Also on this level is a family game area, two closets, a laundry room, a half bath, and an enclosed 6 person Hot Springs Spa with 32 jets w/Comfort Control system. Heated storage for skis, boots, wet clothing, packs, and all your outdoor equipment needs is conveniently located in the garage.
The master suite has a vaulted ceiling with oversized windows, beautiful views, a seating area and marble coffee table - an ideal spot to enjoy your morning coffee. It has a king-size bed, a generous walk-in closet/dressing room and bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and separate steam shower. The second bedroom on this level also sports a vaulted ceiling and magnificent southerly views, private full bath, queen size bed and a walk-in closet. The third bedroom located on the upper level has a queen size bed, full bathroom and ample closet space.
For additional guests, a loft with a full size bed is accessible from the upper level. It has a private stairwell and its own door. A great place to get away from it all - especially for kids!
The lower level is greatly appreciated by the younger crowd for its recreation area (pool table, dart board) and an additional generously sized living room space which includes a large screen TV/VCR/DVD plus stereo with surround sound. A walkout patio is just outside the sliding glass doors. The bunkroom adjacent to the living room has (2) sets of bunk beds (twins) and a twin size trundle bed. A full bathroom supports this level and is complete with linens, towels, and paper goods. A large walk-in closet and two 6 drawer dressers will accommodate all your gear.
Just in case you need to conduct business while on your visit here, office space complete with computer, high speed digital cable Internet as well as wireless access, and a printer/fax machine are available for your use. We hope this area, while an amenity, does not get much use. You're on vacation, remember?
Craig and Leslie Surta. We also own this unit with Craig's brother Todd. We love to vacation in the mountains and so chose to find a place where we could stay with our combined families which sometimes total 13 people.
We live in the Chicago area and love to travel, ski, boat and scuba dive.
We are a family of skiers, so the location between Vail and Beaver Creek was ideal. The location is also perfect for summer activities like mountain biking, golfing, hiking and exploring the local area. The Vail Valley Foundation has a wonderful summer program with the Vilar center which includes performing arts of all kinds. Musicians, film, and even culinary delights are present in the valley.
A quiet location, close knit community and close to great restaurants and shopping.
