Overview

About the property

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

Charming mountain home near Lionshead gondola!

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

Vail Business License #2629

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 Heather Kehoe

This is a family-run business. Thea Rumford and daughter, Heather Kehoe, manage this beautiful mountain home.The photo is of Heather and Thea on the deck of the Chalet in the summertime.

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. They take great joy in now seeing their grandchildren follow in the ski tracks of their parents.

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

The Rumfords also take pride in upgrading and maintaining their beautiful home each year.

Heather Kehoe purchased this house in 1966

Great accommodations and ultra convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Heather was a pleasure to deal with and made sure that we had everything for an enjoyable stay. The kitchen was fully equipped and even had a crockpot which was perfect to prepare a warm meal for the end of great day skiing. I will definitely be contacting Heather for future ski trips to Vail. Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed their stay and can't wait to go back.

Wonderful spring break

  • 5 of 5

BeautIful house with great location in Vail. Big family room with seating for everyone. Well stocked kitchen and great outdoor grill that we used to grill burgers one night. Most convenient for skiers since it's located right off the run and a car is not required to take or pick up skiers. Also. Loved the jacuzzi tub after a long day of skiing!

Wonderful Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful and comfortable home! We arrived late in the evening to a well equipped, clean and fun home. We were thrilled to find wine and cheese waiting for us after a long day of travel. We woke to enjoy views of the mountain and the ski lifts. The chalet is steps away from Lionshead and the ski lifts- Heather made herself available to recommend ski runs for a family with different levels of ability. We had a fire several nights (firewood is provided) and the kitchen was fully equipped, including champagne glasses, which we used for morning mimosas. I would recommend this home to anyone. Enjoy!!

TOP NOTCH SERVICE, 110% SATISFACTION

  • 5 of 5

I can honestly say, that i have never had a host contact us before (scheduling, directions, preparations), during (made sure everything was going smoothly), and after (made sure we left happy, and informed us that we forgot something which she was willing to ship back to us). Heather was such an excellent host, I would definitely come back and stay here. the house is less than a 5 minute walk (slight incline) to the ski trail which you can ski down to lionshead village in less than 30 seconds at the bottom of the mountain, where the lift/gondola is. House had everything we needed. Thanks again heather!!
