About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12, 10 adults max)


Welcome to our home in Vail, Colorado! Our home sits at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on approximately a 1/2 acre of property, nestled up against the White River National Forest boundary. A stream runs through the property for much of the summer.

Relax in our 2800 sq. ft. home, flooded with natural light and views of the forest and surrounding mountains. Walk up the flagstone walkway from the driveway and garage, across the stream to the front door. Here you'll enter the mud room, with two benches and lots of storage to unwind from a great day on the slopes, hiking or biking. From the mud room, open the interior door and walk upstairs to the spacious living, dining, and kitchen areas as well as a powder bathroom and laundry room. Also upstairs is the master suite, with a beautifully appointed en suite bathroom including glass encased shower, jacuzzi tub, double sinks, toilet and bidet room. Master has a king bed.

From the mud room you can also walk downstairs to the lower level to a 2nd family area, wet bar, 2 more bathrooms, 4 additional bedrooms and the private hot tub. 3 of the bedrooms have queen beds, and the 4th bedroom has a set of bunk beds and a day bed with pullout trundle bed.

High end finishes throughout include radiantly heated floors as well as hot water baseboard heat, Thermador and Sub Zero appliances, concrete counter tops and custom tile. Winter, spring, summer or fall... our home is perfect for your Vail vacation to enjoy a truly memorable Rocky Mountain experience.

Additionally, our home offers a 1 car garage and large driveway with plenty of room for parking 2 additional cars. (There is no parking allowed on any street in East Vail, so driveway space is premium!) However, once in Vail, you will not need to drive as our home is a short walk to the free Town of Vail bus service.

If you have members of your group who do not ski, hike or bike, the Vail Racquet Club is a 10 minute walk or 3 minute drive from our home. Here you can indulge in a spa treatment, get in a workout, get a bite to eat at the restaurant, or swim some laps in the year round outdoor heated pool. You can also shop at the club for any active wear or accessories you've forgotten.

Adjacent to the club is Bighorn Park, with a wonderful playground for the kids, beaver pond, and large field to challenge your family members or friends to a game of dodge ball or soccer.

Locals know you come for the skiing, but summer and fall is why we live here. We are a 5 minute drive from the Vail golf course. Bike to Copper Mountain over Old Vail Pass road which is not open to cars. Hike endless miles on the Gore Range trail from our front door. Mountain bike on Vail Mountain or discover a huge network of trails in the valley. Whitewater raft numerous rivers. Or just sit in our yard next to the stream and read a good book amongst the Aspen trees. The sky is the limit of outdoor activities in the summer and fall.

Let me share my knowledge and hospitality with you. I am happy to stock my home upon your arrival with groceries or anything else you might need. I'm happy share my favorite ski runs, hiking or biking routes, as well as suggest some of my favorite restaurants. Don't hesitate to ask our advice.

Gorgeous Home!!

  • 5 of 5

The home is immaculate and perfect for larger parties. Bus stop is a 5 minute walk, which is a littler farther than we wanted since it's up a steep's still worth it for how nice the home is and the price. Landlord was very accommodating through text. Overall great experience!

Wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here and we returned because the accommodations are wonderful and Leslie is so easy to work with in making the arrangements. The house was neat and clean upon our arrival, the kitchen had everything you would need, and the hot tub was perfect for relaxing sore muscles after a long day on the hill. Thanks for a fabulous visit!

About Leslie Altman

My husband and I met in Vail over 25 years ago. We've lived all over the country including New Jersey, Minnesota and California, but Vail has always been our 2nd home. We own/operate this house together and do not use a property management company.

Leslie Altman purchased this house in 2009

Why Leslie Altman chose Vail

Even though it is a single family attached duplex, you'd never know it. The duplex is offset front to back, so we barely share a common wall. All you see in the pictures is ours... you can't see our neighbors half, so it really feels like a true single family home. And the property is set at the end of a cul-de-sac with only 4 other homes. This is not a rental neighborhood... mostly locals live here.

What makes this house unique

The most unique aspect of our home and why we fell in love with it is the setting. It is so private. It is set so spectacularly against the forest, you'd never know it is a duplex or that we share the property with anyone. The stream running through the front yard surrounded by wild flowers is just stunning in the summer. The gold Aspen leaves in the fall are a sight to see against the Colorado blue sky.


Lots of hiking, biking, and snowshoeing trails right from our front door. Close to golf, rafting and horseback riding in summer. Only 10 minutes by car to Vail for skiing, 20 minutes on free bus to Vail Village, which picks up on the street below our home, Meadow Drive.
