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!"

Fabulous Home on the River Exceeds Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We love to stay at Canyon Run in Avon because it is so close to everything we like to do. This home is by far our favorite in all of Canyon Run. The decor is is top of the line with many designer touches including reclaimed wood floors and spa-like bathrooms. The views are fabulous from the balcony. Sally, the owner, has thought of everything - the kitchen is perfectly appointed, their is a grill on the balcony, games and puzzles, even extra wipes, bug spray, etc. if you forget yours. There is always a welcome basket with gift cards and yummy snacks. You have to experience this wonderful home - it will make your stay in the mountains that much better!

Outstanding high quality accommodation in great location

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation is wonderful. As soon as you enter, the warmth and care of this condo is apparent. Everything in the property is good quality with nice touches that make you feel right at home. Its location beside the river adds to its appeal. Sally, the owner is very keen to ensure all visitors have the best visit possible.The condo is beautifully furnished. The 3 bedrooms are very comfortable and well appointed certainly accommodating our party of 6 adults very well.The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials to get you started. The outside bbq is perfect for cooking meat. Its location is perfect within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Getting to the ski fields is easy- either catching a bus out the front of walking to to the gondola. The quality of this accommodation ensured we had a very special holiday. We highly recommend this accommodation in Avon.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful and perfectly located close to everything! From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need to entertain. We walked to the gondola at the Westin to ski every day. The City Market is close as well as many restaurants. We loved Montanas for dinner and there is a great bakery across the street. We did not have a car so we relied on the public shuttle that ran every 15 minutes at the Westin. Catching the shuttle to return from the mountain was crowded but doable. We would definitely return to Canton Run and highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Hi Laurie, Thank you so much for your review! I am so happy that your whole family was together and each member enjoyed the winter adventure so much! So nice when everyone has his own space and can truly stretch out! Likewise how healthy to walk to and explore such a variety of shops, restaurants, Starbucks, the Artisan Bakery, the library, the recreation center and so on --something for everyone. Thank you for your emails during your stay regarding how delighted you were with our home. Best regards, Sally

Amazing Getaway - Quiet and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

My family of four had the pleasure of staying at this property this summer. The location of the property is extremely convenient. We were able to ride bikes everywhere, fly fish right outside the door, walk to the Rodeo and nearby restaurants. The home is beautifully furnished with extremely comfortable furniture and beds. The kitchen provides all of the necessities for preparing food at home and the outdoor grill is awesome! I so appreciate Sally's personal touches that she adds to make the stay extra special. We will certainly be back and thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

You and your family are a marvelous and considerate guests! I am eager for your return! My best wishes always, Sally
