The Rocky Mountains of Colorado have attracted visitors for over a century by being a great place to hike, ski, and enjoy the outdoors. When guests choose one of the Bachelor Gulch vacation rentals, they will be near Eagle-Vail, Avon, and Beaver Creek. Visitors will also find Bachelor Gulch condos and Bachelor Gulch house rentals on the edge of White River National Forest.
Bachelor Gulch vacation rentals are a community resort near enough to Vail to be on the slopes in 10 minutes. Most visitors to Bachelor Gulch condos tend to rent them for their proximity to one of the most popular ski resorts and Swiss-Alpine towns that Colorado has to offer. In winter, Vail is a winter wonderland for the downhill skier but in summer, there are a variety of festivals including a kayaking contest on the town river. On a day trip to Vail from Bachelor Gulch house rentals, visitors can plan to see the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens and the Colorado Snowboard Hall of Fame.
Vail and the surrounding area do have some Nordic skiing, primarily in White River National Forest. The forest offers hiking, picnicking, and off-road trails. To reach the forest from Bachelor Gulch condos, visitors need to look for the sign on I-70 that takes visitors along US 24, 12, 82, 131, or 133, depending on which entrance is closer. Highlights of the forest are Mount of the Holy Cross, Glenwood Canyon, and Maroon Bells Mountains.
For visitors who do not mind a long drive, it is possible to reach Rocky Mountain National Park from Bachelor Gulch house rentals. Like most national parks in Colorado, there are a couple of entrances, though off-road vehicles are necessary. If you are into gambling then leave behind Bachelor Gulch vacation rentals for the day to visit Central City or Blackhawk.
