About the property

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms + bedroom off the Master, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This 4000 sq. ft. luxury chalet is located on the mountainside near Vail. This great alpine setting offers spectacular views and backs up to the National Forest. From our home it is a 7 mile drive to Vail on I-70.

Our home has three levels with 4 bedrooms plus a 5th bedroom-office off the master, and there are 3.5 bathrooms with marble, granite and tile. The first level has 3 bedrooms and a game room. Each of the bedrooms has a queen bed and one has a twin as well.

The master bedroom suite occupies the top level. The office off the master has been converted to a bedroom with a queen bed (perfect for families). The master suite has cathedral ceilings and decks on two sides. The master has its own refrigerator, whirlpool tub and gas stove and TV

The center level (great room) is one large room perfect for entertaining. This whole level has been recently remodeled. Wood floors through out and an all new kitchen with granite counter tops new cabinets and appliances. There is also a built in bar with refrigerator and ice maker. There are new leather couches and a dining table that will seat up to 10.

The great room has large decks wrapping around the building along with 5 sliding glass doors that open onto the decks. The kitchen is part of the great room and does not separate the cooks from the party. We just put in all new rock fireplace and 65 inch TV with Bose sound system. The rock is the same as the Four Seasons in Vail. The gas fireplace will keep the whole great-room warm even when the outside temps are well below zero. The hot tub is on the deck right off the great room and has 2 motors running 56 jets to sooth the aching muscles.

The garage will hold two cars and is heated. The driveway is heated as well and the county takes very good care of the road up to the home.

In Ski Season we rent mostly by the week. Saturday to Saturday

Please e-mail for for further information.

About Bill Tuthill

My brother Walt and I are partners in the home. I am a retired veterinarian in Colorado Springs and Walt is a Lawyer with Morris Nichols Arsch and Tunnell in Wilmington DE. We have owned the home for 16 years and have done extensive remodeling projects every summer.

I am an avid skier and kiteboarder. Love the outdoor and Vail is a great place to be.

Bill Tuthill purchased this chalet in 1994

Why Bill Tuthill chose Avon

We decided on this location because of it's proximity to the best skiing and because of its size and views. We wanted a place where we could get our families together at the same time. We also like the place because of its private alpine setting up the mountain and backing to the National Forest.

What makes this chalet unique

Lots of room, Great views and privacy. Wonderful great room for everybody to be together cooking, lounging and enjoying the hot tub. Very family and group friendly.

Great for a Big Family

  • 4 of 5

We arrived easily at night following the directions given. Everything lit up as we approached the detached garage. We carried all of our luggage up a huge, outdoor staircase, which led us to the bottom level of the house. The house was beautiful, just like the pictures portray. The great room is magnificent as was the outdoor hot tub. The kitchen is far better stocked than I was lead to believe, as there is a veritable cornucopia of leftover dry foods. The master bedroom has a white carpet, which terrified me as I was traveling with 2 small, very active boys.

Bill was a pleasure to deal with and I only needed to contact the him once during our stay but every time we spoke, he was always pleasant, considerate, and knowledgeable. Overall the house gets a 4/5, beautiful, large, well furnished, modern and spacious and really only loses a point because of the unending stairs from the outside and up 2 more stories inside to the master. I would definitely recommend the house to a large family or 2 families. Just watch out for grandma and grandpa negotiating those stairs.

Owner's Response: Hi Glad your group had a good time. I spent a lot of time trying to figure where I could put an elevator in, but in the end no practical ideas came up. My dad was skiing and handling those stairs at 85. I do try to make sure that will not be a problem for new groups. I like providing a well stock kitchen and bath supplies. I have rented before where there are no supplies not even salt and pepper. It is not that hard or expensive to supply most cooking accessories. Hope you can come again some season.

Beautiful home with an amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property. The layout is great with an open floorplan between the kitchen, dining room and great room.

The kitchen is enormous with a great bar area so there is plenty of space to cook and carry a conversation with friends.

The great room has huge skylights and is just enormous. Finally the dining room has a beautiful wood table that easily seats 8-10 people.

We loved the walls of glass, which allowed us to soak in the view of the mountains while perched high up in the Eagle-Vail community. Just outside the glass doors is a huge hot tub where one can literally “soak” in this stunning view.

Beyond the property, Bill was great to work with and accessible. The appliances are top notch, the cookware high end and the pantry fully stocked. The master bedroom is the entire top floor while the remaining large bedrooms are on the first floor. Also on the first floor is a brilliantly designed mudroom for a bunch ski boots, helmets, gloves and jackets - very large and plenty of hooks and cubbies for everything to air out.

The property is well-built and as a result, isolated noise really well. We found the evenings to be super quiet.

This was truly a luxurious place and made for an amazing family vacation!! Thanks Bill!!

Beautiful, comfortable, and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with this home. It was kept clean, very beautiful, had many "extras" (like towels, sheets, fans, first aid, cooking supplies, etc.) for just in case. We felt very at home and taken care of. There was plenty of room for our 3 families. The location was perfect as well. Up on a hill with a great view. Right near Vail, beaver creek, and a quick drive from Aspen, Breckenridge, and Copper mountain. We got to see a lot! Thanks for a great vacation rental experience!

Spacious and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

If you are traveling with a large group, I would definitely recommend this rental. We went with a group of 10 and had plenty of room for everyone. We had 6 children in all and everyone had a great time. The set up of the rental was perfect for us. The view was amazing from every angle of the house. We definitely felt at home and had everything we needed. The large size kitchen allowed us to cook meals and seat everyone at once. Condiments and cooking essentials were at our fingertips. It was nice not having to buy all the little stuff when we got there. The hot tub was very relaxing. If ever traveling with another family again, I would definitely look into staying here again.
