About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The LARKSPUR LODGE is a single family home located in one of Vail's most scenic neighborhoods. Enjoy the views from this beautiful log cabin with an open floor plan, private 7 person hot tub on its own deck, four bedrooms, two baths, one car garage, wood stove, and WIFI. Located in the heart of West Vail, 150 feet from the free Town of Vail bus stop, no car is needed for you to get to and from Vail Village and the slopes.

This recently remodeled, family-owned vacation home is not part of a rental pool and is used primarily by our family as a second home. You will deal with the owners directly instead of with an uncaring rental agency.

Fully furnished to sleep eight people comfortably with QUEEN BEDS in the master and in both guest bedrooms, a full/twin bunk bed in the third guest room, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. All with down comforters and pillows! The recently remodeled kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and everything you'll need for cooking at home. New flat screen TV's in the upper and lower living areas as well as in the master bedroom. The front deck offers an opportunity for dining al fresco at a redwood table for 8 and a Weber gas BBQ for grilling year round, all with incredible views of the Davos Trail. The back deck has a 7-person hot tub in a very private setting. Parking available for up to 5 cars. Please visit our other VRBO listings as well:

Once you arrive there is no need to drive. Leave your car in the garage and walk 150 feet to the bus stop for the free, ten minute ride to the Heart of Vail Village. Or, walk, roller blade or ride your bike into town on the beautiful bike path that runs alongside Gore Creek.

No smoking or pets allowed.

Comfortable & Convenient

  • 4 of 5

The rental was perfect for our family of five. It was very close to the bus stop and a grocery store & restaurants. The rental is in West Vail. The staircase was a little tricky to navigate as it is spiral and narrow. The hot tub was a real treat after a full day of skiing. I would absolutely stay here again, huge value!

Owner's Response: Jennifer, We are happy you had a good time! The spiral staircase was actually made from the gondola cable from the first Vail Gondola. They are found all around Vail due to the amount of cable available when the gondola was removed. Please caome again! Thanks Andy & Meg

Great experience overall!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to CO with 5 ppl + 2 kids for a week long ski trip at Vail. Andrew was so helpful through the process and was very easy to deal with. The shuttle can't be beat - its steps from the door and is the best way to get around Vail. We loved the hot tub outside as well and was a great way to unwind after the slopes. Hope to go back!

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Location was great, only steps from the Vail bus. We had a group of 7 which was a little cozy when all in the living room but overall it was a great experience!
