This amazing private home is perched on a mountain top with three large decks overlooking treetops, and magnificent views stretching 40 miles down an exquisite valley. Magnificent sunsets enhance the mountain lodge ambiance created by a two story stone fireplace, 20 foot vaulted ceiling great room, huge beams, and unique hardwood flooring.

Slab granite counters, travertine marble, and alder woodwork compliment the beautifully appointed furnishings throughout this spacious home, which boasts two steam showers, a huge game room with Foosball, Air Hockey, Ping Pong and Pool tables, three fireplaces, and an outdoor hot tub.

Privacy and convenience merge in this unique setting next to a secluded mountain trail ideal for snowshoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, mountain biking, trail-running or leisurely moonlit walks. It is perfectly situated between the 2 resorts: a short 12 minute drive to Vail, 8 minute drive to Beaver Creek. It is possible to hike or snowshoe on this trail to Beaver Creek.

The gourmet kitchen is spacious, elegant, and practical, including a Viking double oven with convection, two microwaves, Wolf gas range, and Sub-Zero refrigerator. Each spacious bedroom suite has spectacular views and an attached full bath. The main master includes a king bed, queen sleeper, fireplace, balcony, elegant bath with two separate vanities, jetted tub, large steam shower. The second master has a balcony, double vanity, large tub, and separate shower. The family room has comfortable sofas that easily can sleep two individuals or children, and a wet bar with refrigerator.

The rec room has a second kitchen area for convenience and French doors that open onto a large deck with hot tub nestled amidst the trees. A Murphy bed pulls down for additional sleeping, and comfy sofas surround the third gas fireplace. A large bathroom with jetted, double-head, marble steam shower adjoins this area, as does a second laundry. This level boasts a media room with wide screen TV, 2 sleeper (Q&T)sofas, and privacy.

Covered entry allows safe secluded storage of skis or bikes. A private suite with queen Murphy bed, full bath, separate (third) kitchen, and decks overlooking the forest is available upon request at an additional charge.

. There is a caretaker in an adjoining apartment with completely separate entrance who is available to answer questions and take care of anything the house may need. He will make sure the driveway is free of snow (half of it is heated, he has a snow blower for the balance) and that the hot tub is functioning properly. He manages a ski shop and knows the area very well.

This beautiful unique home is available year round, Christmas/New Years holiday rental, President's week, Spring Break. Owners are a local family and would be happy to provide private tours, and other helpful services. As former ski instructor and long-time local, Meredith can provide helpful tips and guidance.

PRICING depends upon the season, number of guests and number of nights. Average pricing during the ski season for 10-15 people is $1200-1750/nt. Holidays are extra. Prices may be lower for less than 10, higher for over 15 people (or for less days). Longer stays may offer a discount. During the summer season average rates range from $800-900/nt, less for full weeks or multiple weeks. Flex with more or less than 10-15. Off-season rates vary a lot, depending upon the month. Owner will offer larger discount for last-minute or 'between-season' rentals, so INQUIRE :) She also has smaller ski-in/ski-out condos available. Sometimes these can be rented IN CONJUNCTION with the house for the "best of both worlds" - ie, spacious home with ski-in/ski-out convenience at a fraction of the cost of a large slope-side home!

The Perfect stay for anyone.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and i were looking for a house to relax in for the weekend up in Vail. This house could not have been more perfect. Waking up to the beautiful view was amazing. The different floors allowed for people to do there own thing while still being part of the group. The kitchen was a good size to make food for a large amount of people. The hot tub was a in a great location to enjoy the stunning views. There were multiple rooms and beds to accommodate a large group of people. Our group size was 24 and we could have comfortably fit 10 more.

This sounds cliche but literally nothing could be better about the house. It was secluded to allow peace and quiet. It was our own private paradise. From the view, to the size, the facilities, the house was perfect.

This Place is EVERYTHING

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything a retreat should be! There is more than enough room for everyone (25+ people!) to be together, while having completely separate areas for introverts or small groups. Despite the 6500ft2, the house never felt cavernous or empty. Instead, it felt open and cozy no matter where we spent time. It felt like one giant home and three luxury houses connected by stairs at the same time. Each floor has a huge balcony with unbelievable views of the mountain. (People now think I'm a good photographer, but it's just nearly impossible to take a bad picture.) The carpets were the softest I've ever walked on, and there are jetted bathtubs to relax in along with the outdoor hot tub. There are board and card games throughout the house to keep everyone entertained, and two laundry rooms to keep everyone clean. Another useful feature is the fenced-in pet patio area, where my dog could be off leash and outside without me worrying about him escaping. There are plenty of storage areas/containers for skis and other large equipment. Just a few hundred feet up the mountain is a trail that has breathtaking nature views. Bonus: The basement has the cutest little hidden bedroom that felt like Harry Potter's cabinet under the stairs!

If you choose to leave the house (which is completely optional, because you could stay inside for weeks and never get bored), the Vail area offers gourmet food and shopping, as well as skiing, dog parks, and hiking. So no matter what you are looking for in your trip, this location can meet your needs and exceed your expectations. I fully recommend this listing (and have done so in person to everyone I've talked to since I left). :)

Special shout out to Meredith: You are an incredible owner, a great communicator, and a generous, funny spirit. Thanks for your part in my special vacation!!!

Fabulous Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this incredible home. Our family had a spectacular fall getaway here. The house had plenty of room for all of us, with a game room on the bottom floor that our children loved. We spent lots of time in the hot tub -- sunrise, sunset, after dark, enjoying the quiet and beautiful views. The house is beautiful and luxurious, and at the same time felt warm and comfortable -- like a home away from home. We felt like we were in our own private world, eating out on the decks, playing games and ping pong, and having fabulous dinners in the huge, upscale kitchen with every tool or appliance we could need.

We were so well taken care-of. Meredith was amazingly generous and welcoming. She was available to walk us through any questions we had about the house and to give us recommendations of things to do. The wonderful caretaker, Casey, lives in an adjacent apartment, and he was helpful and available when needed -- keeping up the hot tub and sharing insights about the home and area.

We only wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful Peaceful Home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do it justice! It is absolutely gorgeous! The views from every level of the house are amazing!

We feel in love with all of it! Provides everything you need to have a fantastic vacation or get away. Loved drinking our morning coffee on the deck overlooking the changing fall colors! Meredith was a delightful person and big help on making our stay just great! Couldn't have ask for more. Thank you so much!

Fabulous time last week of skiing

  • 5 of 5

I meant to post this before, but you know how things go. We're getting ready to rebook for the upcoming season, and we'll definitely be heading back to this property. The home is gorgeous, plenty of room for our group of 15 and the kitchen is fantastic. Views off the deck provided memorable sunsets. The owner hooked us up with her personal chef who did a delightful job on a couple of meals. (Saved a bundle off Vail restaurant prices, too). From the Eagle-Vail location, we could choose either Vail or Beaver Creek easily. In fact, Pauli's Plunge comes off Rose Bowl right down to the house, if you're really good.

Car: necessary

THis spacious 6300 sq ft home is conveniently located between Vail and Beaver Creek (12 min drive to Vail, 7 min drive to Beaver Creek); yet it is right next to one of the best hiking trails in the Vail Valley, which gives the feeling of being 'away from it all'! The trail has 4 routes of varied levels, 2 of which lead to cascading water. In the winter you can ski from Beaver Creek to the house, snow and expertise permitting. The views stretch 30 miles to the west with stunning sunsets, and the wooded acre lot stretches down to the golf course, which can be seen beautifully winding through Eagle-Vail, from each of the 3 decks. The clubhouse and driving range are a short walk, and the new community pool is at the bottom of the hill. Close to Fly Fishing, rock climbing, horseback riding. Can walk out the door and be on the trail for snowshoeing, mountain biking, or cross-country skiing. Feeling of being 'tucked away', yet a 5 minute drive to shops and restaurants.
