Avon vacation rentals

Ding, dong, Avon calling

Tucked away in Colorado's Eagle River Valley, the rugged mountain town of Avon is the heart of the valley. Located 8 miles from the king of the ski slopes, Vail Mountain, Avon is the gateway to the Beaver Creek Resort. Book an Avon vacation rental and have easy access to Beaver Creek's 1,815 acres of slopes, via Avon's free public transport. Even if you don't make it onto the piste, there's plenty on offer in this charming mountain town, including a rash of independent shops and restaurants, as well as hiking trails and canoeing.

Avon: The golden gateway to Beaver Creek Ski Resort

Avon is an active kinda place, although loafers are welcome, too. From your Avon vacation rental, the ski slopes of Beaver Creek Resort are short hop on the free gondolas, so you can be whizzing down the slopes soon after breakfast. During the summer, there's no let up in the activities on offer. Romp across the mountains on one of the main hiking trails on offer, or try white water rafting on the Eagle River. The Beaver Creek Hiking Center offers a variety of guided hikes between June and September.

On piste, off piste - the choice is yours

One of the big benefits of booking an Avon vacation rental is its close proximity to Beaver Creek Resort. Located 2 miles south of Avon, Beaver Creek is one of Colorado's major ski resorts. Coast down the gentle slopes of Bachelor Gulch or ramp it up and bomb down the moguls of Grouse Mountain. When spring comes and the snow melts, the hikers, bikers, and golfers descend. Play the challenging Robert Trent Jones-designed course at Beaver Creek Golf Club, or take a hike around Nottingham Lake.

Despite the snow, Avon hots up in winter

Avon and Beaver Creek Resort are 2 of the most popular winter destinations in the region. For the best snowfall, visit between December and March, when the conditions are at their best, although the slopes can be busy. Summer is also a popular time on the mountain, when temperatures regularly reach 70°F . The shoulder seasons of late spring and fall are when the weather is more unpredictable - sometimes sun, sometimes rain, so just pack wisely.

A veritable wildlife wonderland

Set at the base of Beaver Creek Mountain, Avon is largely centered around Nottingham Lake, which becomes the focus of summer and winter activities. The area is a lush, natural habitat for much of Colorado's wildlife. Book an Avon vacation rental close to town, and spot elk, white tail deer, and even bear, if you're lucky. Bobcats and mountain lions are found in the upper reaches, while beaver and otter like to frolic by the water's edge, as bald eagles soar overhead. It's a veritable wildlife wonderland!
