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.
How to Get There
Every Wednesday morning, we get to participate in Vail Rotary Club at Manor Vail. JAG helps set us up and takes care of us during our meeting during 1 1/2 hours of our stay there. it is a fantastic breakfast and we have been enjoying the service provided by JAG for many years now! Thanks again. Y'all are awesome!
We are here for a business event for my husband in July. We arrived at about 1:00 am after an exhausting drive from Denver Airport. We were greeted well and a friendly security employee helped us find our place, settle in, and park our rental car. The room is big and flexible. I could hear the river behind us. There is a nice kitchen, a very nice bed, a living area with a fireplace, and a Weber grill on the small seating area outside. The room can be divided and there is a Murphy bed in the living area. The bathroom would be shared. The place looks a little worn out, but it’s fairly clean. We woke up the next morning to a very nice breakfast with an omelette station. The grounds are gorgeous. We can see the river from our room. The pool and hot tubs are close by. This whole area is amazing. The hotel is steps away from the Ford Park and gardens. Vail Village and Lionshead are easy walks (less than 1 mile) for shopping and restaurants. You can walk, bike, or take the free local bus. If you want nature it’s close by too. The staff is super attentive and friendly.
We love staying at the Manor in Vail. It is just a few minutes walking from the lively Village bars and restaurants while feeling like you are in the most tranquil setting Vail has to offer. The rooms are steps from the slopes, back to the Gore River, overlook stunning gardens, and are right across from the Betty Ford Gardens and Ampitheatre. Once you stay here, nothing else compares. The staff are exceptional and can help with any family activities during your visit. One of my favorite activities is simply putting my feet up on the front porch while grilling (Webers included), having a cold one, and staring at the mountain and gardens while the kids play on the lawn. Always feels like home away from home :)
