The private master suite is on it’s own level with a private deck and air conditioning.

Bighorn Park is a great neighborhood meeting place with its playground, off-leash dog park, picnic tables, open field and pond. Bikers can begin their day by riding up Vail Pass or riding into Vail Village to take in the Sunday farmers market. Hikers have a choice of terrific hiking trails, from beginner to expert, the trails of Bighorn Creek, Gore Creek, Pitkin Creek and Deluge Lake provide hikers with spectacular views, stunning aspen groves, waterfalls and high alpine lakes that cannot be found anywhere else in the valley. The well-known waterfalls include one of the most renowned ice climbing locations in Colorado called “The Fang.” East Vail provides outstanding recreational access for outdoor activities including road bike access to Vail Pass, incredible hiking and mountain biking trails including Deluge Creek and Booth Falls. East Vail is a popular location for locals and second homeowners alike due mainly to its unique beauty, proximity to Vail Mountain, and the fact that the Vail Mountain School is located in the area (one of the most prestigious private schools in Colorado). The close proximity to Vail Pass makes it an easy jaunt to Denver International Airport and the Greater Denver area to take in shopping, professional sporting events and other cultural events offered by the Front Range area. East Vail also has its own small convenience store and a neighborhood restaurant located in the Racquet Club.
