To Our Past & Returning Guests,

Thank you for being so thoughtful, complimentary, interesting, considerate, fun and nice. You are simply the best! We have sincerely appreciated your kindness, willingness to give suggestions, and the meticulous manner in which you have cared for the property. All our gratitude to you.

Best wishes always,

Sally & Tom

To Our Future Guests,

This is an uncommon property in terms of aesthetics, comfort, and simple elegance. Consider this your homeaway retreat in the Rocky Mountains.

Throughout the home are items not expected--a reclaimed barn wood floor (wood was transported from upstate NY), handmade reclaimed wood furniture, an assortment of wool hand knotted oriental rugs & Karastan wool accent rugs, hand crafted and/or carved furniture, floral arrangements, fine linens--duvets, shams, throws, quilts--and one of a kind decorator items collected over a period of years. It is not a cookie cutter platinum rated rental.

We, in part, express our artistic talents through our home environment.

Our best regards always,

Sally & Tom

About The Owner

***Always Reach for Life's Brass Ring--It Just May Be There for You***

We bought in the Avon area because our family (now numbering 14 including children, spouses, and grandchildren) loves outdoor activities in the summer and winter. The females of our family find the shopping in Vail and Beaver Creek always entertaining and we all find the selection of local watering holes or upscale restaurants on special occasions unparalleled anywhere. For us it is a place for the family to relax, follow their own individual pursuits during the day and enjoy each others company in the time after.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2003

Why The Owner chose Northwest Colorado

Avon and Canyon Run in particular offers beautiful mountain views, the rush of the Eagle river, and convenient amenities without the high prices associated with Vail and Beaver Creek. The activities of these higher priced areas are however easily and quickly accessible if one so desires.

Our grandchildren really enjoy the waterpark in summer and the BC magic carpet in winter.

What makes this townhome unique

You will feel as though you are guests--friends of the owners of this deluxe and rare town home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at your beautiful Avon home – thank you for everything! We were a bit nervous bringing our 2 and 4 year old daughters to such an upscale home but were pleased to find the home very child friendly and also extravagantly decorated with a distinct mountain-home feel. We felt pampered yet comfortable – we look forward to coming back in the summer to spend more time shopping, biking, hiking, fishing and kayaking! I also just have to share that this was an especially memorable trip for us because it was our 4 year olds first time skiing! Getting her to the magic carpet learning area at Bachelor Gulch was so easy and scenic; it was a perfect introduction to alpine skiing. The girls were also tickled to have a large flat screen television in their room and loved all the animal prints around the home – the care you took in choosing a location, furnishing, decorating, and stocking this home did not go unnoticed. We’re already planning our next stay!"

Perfect Colorado Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE this home in Avon! It is beautifully furnished, everything we needed was provided, it was impeccably clean and the owner Sally was a pleasure to work with! The location was ideal! A quick drive to Beaver Creek or Vail or we could walk to shopping, Nottingham Park for a stroll around the lake or just across the street to Starbucks and a delicious bakery. My favorite thing was listening to the Eagle River literally outside the back door. Such a relaxing summer trip! We will definitely stay here for our future visits to Avon! Thank you Sally!

Wonderful stay in Avon!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (5 people) stayed at Sally's wonderful home in Avon the first week of August 2017. We have stayed in VRBO properties throughout the US and internationally, and we all have agreed this home was our favorite! The property backs up to the beautiful Eagle River, so there is a peaceful noise in the background. The home was meticulously clean with all the comforts of home. The linens and towels were clean and high quality. The kitchen supplies were great; All Clad cookware, great toaster and coffee maker. Sally went to great lengths to ensure we were comfortable, even leaving gift cards to the bakery and Starbucks across the street, as well as some delicious snacks! We enjoyed breakfast at the Avon Bakery, which is just a short walk across the street. This home is also very close to Beaver Creek, Vail, and other great areas. We loved our stay and would love to visit again! Thank you Sally!

My very best wishes always, Sally

Wonderful! Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We loved the Gore river in our back yard and I enjoyed Starbucks every morning across the street. We were also so excited to see a black bear across the river on one of our morning walks. The house was super clean and had EVERYTHING you might need.

Avon-Beaver Creek Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great property and responsive, inviting owner - would highly recommend it. I took my two teenage girls skiing at Beaver Creek. The property was exceptionally clean - and has everything that you need. The property is on the river, which gives it a nice ambience. Starbucks is a 45-second walk - and restaurants and grocery store are around the corner. We drove over to the Elk parking lot to catch the shuttle to Beaver Creek. The drive to the Elk lot is maybe two minutes away, if that. It was $10 to park (or $35 if you drive up to the mountain). You can also walk to the Westin hotel from the property to catch the gondola over to the mountain - it's only about 5-6 minutes in walking shoes...ski boots would take you a little longer.

Another great experience in this condo - we love coming back here! Everything inside the condo is so well done. Also appreciate that it's quiet, has an attached garage, has a Starbucks and bakery/cafe right across the street as well as direct access to a lovely walking path.
