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!

Four-family ski trip
We had a lovely trip to the Vail area. There were 15 total in our party, including 7 adults and 8 children. The house is well-stocked and has multiple levels allowing the adults and children to all have unique spaces to "hang out". The main floor with the kitchen, dining and family room is a perfect gathering spot with plenty of room for all to sit and eat meals. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you will need. There is a gas grill located just outside on the deck where we made burgers and hot dogs one evening. Meredith is a gracious host and very communicative. The house is convenient to Vail and BC as well as grocery stores. We flew in/out of Denver and it was easy highway driving to the home. We would recommend this home for your vacation stay.
What a fun house!
This is a great house with A LOT of room! Owner Meredith was great to work with!
The Perfect stay for anyone.
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
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
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!
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!
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.
