Vail House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Come stay at your home away from home in Vail, Colorado!

Just off of '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. The master suite features a queen-size bed plus whirlpool tub for two (jacuzzi type) and separate shower room. The other main floor bedroom includes a queen-size bed, bath/shower, and an expansive bay window. The third bedroom on the upper floor has a queen-size bed, two twin-size beds, plenty of closet space, and a large vanity sink area.

The fourth bedroom is, in fact, an adjoining studio-apartment with king-size bed, queen-size hide-a-bed, compact kitchen, full bath, and large walk-in closet. 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 Owner

Thea says, 'The character of Chalet du Soleil is incomparable and is sure to please.'

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 a 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.

The Rumfords also take pride in upgrading and maintaining their beautiful home each year. Last year the kitchen was completely's lovely...

The Owner purchased this house in 1966

Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great stay! The location was fantastic and the house included all amenities we needed. We were especially impressed with the fireplace as the focal point of the living room. Heather was great from start to finish and very responsive via email and cell phone. I would definitely recommend this property to others.

Great location and good people

  • 5 of 5

The house was great and the location was amazing. We walked into Lionshead every morning and evening. Heather was great to work with. She has gone beyond our expectations by offering to mail an item we left behind. Much appreciated! I would recommend this house to anyone. CA

Private and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at Chalet du Soleil. It accommodated 9 of us comfortably with plenty of room. Unfortunately it is not "ski-in" any more, you do need to carry skis up the hill to the bottom of Born Free ski run home. We ended up renting a car as the in town free bus wouldn't stop at our road. The owners were very helpful and even bought a new oven when it broke down. We actually ate in every night as the kitchen is well equipped. Would recommend this private house.

Great property, great location!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the Chateau with a group of 4 other guys the first week of February, 2016. The home is clean and very well appointed with everything you will need during your stay. It was exactly as advertised. The location is particularly nice if you don't have transportation, since you can walk down the street and be on the ski run to the Eagle Bahn Gondola in 5 minutes. You can also walk to Lionshead Village in about 10 minutes. The owners are very nice, responsive, and easy to work with. They even provided us with some initial provisions since we were arriving late and would not be able to go to the market upon arrival. Very nice touch! One thing to note that was not clear to us prior to renting was that the upstairs bedroom does not have a bathroom, so those staying in that room have to descend a flight of stairs to use the facilities. It was a bit of a pain for those staying up there. But overall, I would recommend this place for a group our size. Might be a little cramped with more than 6 adults.

Great location and wonderful for a large group

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location, close to the slopes and Lionshead village. The house has a wonderful living area that was easy to relax in. The many bedrooms can accomodate a large number of people and this makes it really useful for big families or even combined groups. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back in the future.
