Escape to Eagle County

Tucked away in Eagle County, Edwards serves as a gateway to one of America's best ski resorts. The town is anchored by the lively Edwards Riverwalk strip where you'll find everything from cafes and wine bars to art galleries and outdoor outfitters. Edwards vacation rentals put you just steps from the action, with a fantastic line-up of luxury condos and townhouses. You can even unlock access to properties in Arrowhead, one of the most coveted gated communities in the region.

Things to do

Your passport to the mighty Vail resort

Known as the king of American ski resorts, Vail boasts hundreds of trails, dozens of lifts, and over 8,000 acres of skiable terrain. Whether you want to carve up the slopes or hit the bars, Edwards vacation rentals make it easy to enjoy a winter break in Vail. Craving a change of scene? Why not switch things up with a day at Beaver Creek, another of Colorado's premier resorts? You'll probably work up a thirst on the slopes, so be sure to head to Vines at Vail Winery, a boutique mountain vineyard pouring handcrafted, small lot wines.

Activities

Go wild in the Edwards backcountry

Along with famous skiing opportunities, Edwards serves up a host of other outdoor adventures. The Eagle River is a big drawcard, with opportunities to swim, fly fish, and white-water raft down its foamy rapids. Golfers will be in their element, with more than a dozen courses within striking distance of Edwards. And at an elevation of over 7000 feet, your drives will go at least 10% further. The Vail Valley is laced with hiking trails for every level, including the quad-burning North Trail. This is a local favorite, taking you past aspen groves, crystal clear creeks, and wildflower fields.
