Set on 20 park-like acres in East Vail, bisected by Gore Creek and backed by spectacular mountain scenery, this condo-townhouse resort is a home away from home for families and groups of friends looking for adventure—and plenty of space to spread out. These digs are far from Vail Village’s ski bunnies and fur coats, so you can actually enjoy the gurgling creek and hear the roar of a waterfall cascading down the cliffs from private decks or patios. Or curl up by a crackling wood-burning fire in cozy living rooms. Kitchens are big and equipped with everything you need to cook up a delish dinner served in a separate dining room.
Bed & Bath
No two of the one-, two- and three-bedroom condo units are the same, and each is individually owned meaning that décor can vary wildly. Don’t book these digs for the style; book them for the space and comfort they afford. Each bedroom has a TV with DVD player and a private bathroom, all of which were recently updated. They’re perfect escapes when it’s time to escape the family fun for a little peace and quiet.
A stay at the Vail Racquet Club Mountain Resort is all about enjoying the mountain and an active lifestyle. As the name implies, tennis is a big draw in the spring, summer and fall on ten courts, including four clay courts. The club offers a variety of tennis lessons, camps, clinics and tournaments for both adults and juniors at every level of play. The private 2,800-square-foot health club is loaded with Cybex equipment and free weights, and fitness rooms with spin cycles and pilates machines; pilates, yoga and aerobics classes are offered daily. The heated outdoor lap pool is a treat, as are the two 20-person hot tubs.
In the Area
Longtime East Vail stalwart Blu’s Restaurant recently moved to the Vail Racquet Club Mountain Resort, providing hearty American fare and a descent wine list on nights that you don’t want to cook. If you’re looking for gourmet grub, make the pilgrimage to the village for Restaurant Kelly Liken where the Top Chef finalist cooks up treats such as a potato-crusted Colorado trout. Speaking of fish, the hottest table in town is Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s eponymous sushi spot. The fish is flown in fresh daily and a wall of windows provides spectacular views of the slopes. For a meaty meal check out Elway’s Steakhouse—yes, as in NFL legend John Elway. There’s just enough football memorabilia and chef Tyler Wiard grills up steaks just right.
How to Get There
We stay at the VRC everytime we vacation in the Vail, Colorado area. We always are pleased with our condo and the use of the pool, hot tub, and weight room when we are there. Massage services are available if you so desire. The surroundings are relaxing with the views of the mountain and the creek streamside. Our condos have always been clean and well equipped. Our grandchildren enjoy the on site playground and walking to a neighbor hood park which is about 1/4 mile away.
We were coming to Vail Racquet ball club resorts for a long weekend family reunion. We were not informed there was construction on the units across the street. Hammers and noises were hear at 7:00 each morning.We noticed that some of the smoke alarms were not working. It was warm in the units and no ceiling fan to move air. Location was great for what we need . The stream behind the unit was refreshing. Restaurant closed leaded us to going to the city for some of the dinners.
We loved our trip to Vail! This resort is in a perfect location just east of Vail. The front desk was very accommodating and friendly. We walked into Vail and took the bus back. The condo we were in was clean and very modern. We will come back to stay!
