About Ruth Ann

We having been coming to Vail since 1990, renting several houses each year until we bought our house in 1999. As a Real Estate Broker, LOCATION was most important to us. We bought the house for the easy quick access to the ski trail/chair and fishing location right on the banks of the Gore Creek and to Chair #20 lift. (In 15 MINUTES , YOU ARE AT THE TOP OF VAIL MOUNTAIN AT EAGLE'S NEST) Hiking up Cascade Way and Simba to Eagle's Nest during the Summer is fantastic!!!

No lift lines, valet your skis if you want, Charter Sports is right at our Chair Lift #20. You can rent all your ski equipment rentals, also Valet your skis FREE etc.

Ski to our street, Westhaven Circle and 5 minute walk back to the house, with NO HILLS to climb!

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO BE REALLY SPOILED, I provide a "Daily Parking Pass" right next to the Ski Lift! Great for little ones or those who don't want to walk anywhere!

Aria Spa & Fitness Club is included with this rental house. The Resort and Spa are just 5 minute walk from the house. Discounts on Spa visits and Atwater Restaurant are included. It is so easy for our guests to come and go from the house to Chair # 20 or skiing down to the house, spa, shopping etc without someone having to be there to let them in. We have easy access without using house keys.

We love spending our time between Florida and Colorado, living on the Gore Creek, just steps to Chair #20 lift, is the best of both Winter/Summer and Fall.

Ruth Ann purchased this house in 1999

Why Ruth Ann chose Cascade Village

The LOCATION IS GREAT for skiers, fly fishers, multiple families! CME will bring you right to the door and pick you up.

If you didn't want to rent vehicles, also, you can ride Hotel Shuttles from Lobby to other villages and return (they run until mid-night) or after dinner, take a short taxi ride back to the house.

We can provide grocery shopping,daily housekeeping. Being close to everything but not having to deal with the big or loud crowds.

We are closer to Chair Lift #20 than other places PLUS we have ski rentals, ski valet and ticket office all together and we don't have to waste any time waiting in ski lines! (It's like having our OWN private ski lift!) Charter Sports is right there to rent skis/valet or tune your skis.

Buy your lift tickets right at the base of the lift. Getting to the top of Eagle's Nest is one easy 'catwalk green' to Chair #26 which (parallels the Gondola to top of mountain) Once you arrive, you don't even have to drive again until you're ready to leave. Our guests can come and go off the mountain with ease.

The Vail Cascade Resort offers us the benefits of a resort with our Aria Athletic Club & Spa membership, you get all the benefits plus discounts on Spa, dining/lounge but the privacy of staying in a large private home with plenty of space for multiple families.

The views are breathtaking of the mountains and especially being on the Gore Creek. We love being on the creek, the sights and sounds are fantastic. We are the only home in our area that is available for rent on the Gore Creek next to Chair #20 lift and with a large private back yard for play and fishing. This is beautiful neighborhood of multi-million dollar homes. Whether skiing, fishing or coming to Vail for 'Events', having fun especially with multiple families, this house will definitely fit your needs!

What makes this house unique

New for 2017, Air conditioning system. (one of the only houses in Cascade Village) to make July, August and September more comfortable when necessary! New Mattresses & feather beds and down comforters to making sleeping an Art! Included in renting our house, our Aria Spa & Athletic Club Memberships, you can enjoy all the benefits including pools, spas, tennis, best-rated Fitness Club and many activities. Venture Ski Shop rents all ski equipment and summers, they rent bicycles etc. They are located in the Cascade Resort building. Our Front Patio, with new seating and Fire Pit. Enjoy relaxing listening to sounds of the Fountain and River in the background. Last May, we had a Moose visit us across the street from our property. Back patios and decks, enjoy the breathtaking views of the mountains and river or in summers, go down and enjoy fly fishing, games etc in our large private back yard. Weber Natural Gas grill on back kitchen deck, grill to your heart's desire. Living room deck has Patio Furniture and a Bench Swing and Stone Tables and Patio Heater, for the cool nights. Hot Tub Spa is wonderful to enjoy any time of the year, while enjoying the sounds of the river and the views. For health minded guests, enjoy the Far Infarred Sauna, treadmill and stationary bike, filtered water dispenser and vitamix. Private Chef available for dine-in meals. Daily cleaning service available on request - Mid-week cleaning IS included in nightly rate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a surprise to have my whole family with me to celebrate my 65th Birthday!" We enjoyed your lovely home. The beds were so comfortable, you don't want to get up in the morning! I will also remember the great meals and the "roast" my kids did to me! Your home provided us with a perfect weekend celebration!

Hope to come back again real soon!

top notch rental with great location and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

Property is well kept with very good management-everything was as advertised.Good directions from owner re how to use everything.Very well located and owner is most helpful with any questions.Kitchen is well stocked with everything anyone needs and more.For example there were 4 blenders,several coffee makers and all cabinets and drawers were full.Consider this property outstanding and would gladly rent again.Only constructive comment is that there is too much stuff in house and not any tabletop or space without decorative accessories or furniture.

Great place. Very clean and great location. Owners very responsive and helpful.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this house. Had 15 people of varying ages for 7 days and had plenty of room to accommodate. Kids had areas to hang out and be out of the way. The double washer/dryer was very nice to have. Garage (heated) for storing skis, poles and bags proved to be extremely beneficial. Garage had extra fridge for beverage and extra food storage! Thanks
