Ski to the house from 'Born Free', the ski run leading to the gondola. The house is 120 yards from the ski run and overlooks the magnificent Gore Range Mountains. Named 'Chalet du Soleil', this charming four bedroom home is within easy walking distance of fine restaurants and shops. The house is on a large lot. Sledding and playing in the snow can be enjoyed by those with excess energy after skiing. We provide the sleds. The house is equipped with all the amenities you are accustomed to in your own home.
The house comfortably accommodates up to ten people. All beds are made up in the Swiss-style with comforters, extra pillows, and ironed sheets. Smoking is not permitted.
The owners, Fred and Thea, live in the house next door and will be happy to make your stay a pleasant one! Their daughter, Heather Kehoe, lives in Eagle and manages the property.

About the owners...: Fred and Thea Rumford have owned this charming mountain home since 1966 when it was built as a weekend getaway for their family. Skiing is large part of their lives. They have raised their children to grow up with a tremendous appreciation for the alpine lifestyle and they take great joy in now seeing their grandchildren follow in the ski tracks of their parents.
Thea says, 'The character of this home is incomparable and is sure to please.'
Unique benefits to this house that you can enjoy: Prime Lionshead location. Specular views of the Gore Range Mountains. Very family friendly accommodations.
I was born in Boulder and have skied all my life here in Vail. My husband and I and our two kids now live in Eagle and we love welcoming people to Vail.
It's the little things that the owners/manager do to make this place special.
Quaint, very comfortable with an exceptional location!
