Location counts in Vail, and when it comes to prime slopeside real estate, Manor Vail Lodge’s spot by the covered bridge at the Golden Peak base area rules the roost. Fully renovated in 2008, the look is Colorado contemporary with a wink to the Old West; think vintage wooden skis above stone-facade fireplaces, leather rocking chairs and flat-screen TVs.
Bed & Bath
We dig the variety of accommodations on offer here, from couples-friendly studios to large two-bedroom condos with pull-out couches that can sleep up to eight and come with the services of an on-site family activities coordinator. Note that condo units here are privately owned, which means the design changes from one to the next; some owners have better taste than others. But they all feature full kitchens, cozy living areas and balconies with endless mountain views.
After a day playing in the great outdoors, enjoy a revitalizing treatment at the in-house spa or do DIY relaxation in one of the four hot tubs or two heated pools. You can also unwind over breathtaking views and happy hour cocktails at The Fitz, the in-house lounge.
In the Area
With your prime slopeside location, you’re well situated for outdoor bliss all year round. With runs designed especially for intermediate skiers and boarders, Blue Sky Basin is a slightly easier introduction to deep powder and back bowl riding and can be accessed via the Riva Bahn. Cross-country skiers can get their fix at the Cordillera Nordic Center, 15 miles west of Vail in Edwards. Hiking, horseback riding, fly fishing and golf are big summer sports and can be arranged through Manor Vail’s concierge. At night, kick back with the locals at Bart & Yeti’s, a divey spot with Vail’s best burgers. In the winter, ride the lifts at Vail and ski the heart-pounding three mile off-resort run that plummets almost 3,100 feet ending up at the 1901 Minturn Saloon, a kitschy après spot for fireside roadhouse and Mexican fare.

Manor Vail staff were so friendly and helpful when we checked in and accommodated our early arrival. The breakfast buffet was tasty and had something for everyone. The location across from Golden Peak is so convenient for a fun ski vacation.
Exceeded expectations on every level. Breakfast was excellent, location was excellent, service was excellent, restaurant was excellent, heated pool was excellent....I could go on and on, I will never stay anywhere in Vail except this property. Can't wait to return and stay again!
The staff was fantastic. A short walk to the lift. The ski valet is a real convenience. Great pools & hot tubs. Complimentary breakfast is top notch & the food at Fitz's was excellent. We will definitely stay there for future trips to Vail.
