The Clubhouse, built from stone and wood, exudes a rugged yet elegant atmosphere enhanced by sun-drenched terraces and a beautiful pool that overlooks the Valley club Golf Course. The Valley Club Restaurant is a casual grill, all with a social membership to the club gathers a host of amenities to create a coveted lifestyle.

Cordillera is Vail Valley’s elite golf community known for its world-class golf courses, tennis, hiking, equestrian center, fishing, bike riding, skiing, fitness facilities, and Cordillera Lodge and Spa. Cordillera has four distinct neighborhoods, The Valley, The Divide, the Ranch and the Summit. The Valley is the only area located on the north hillside of Edwards and the remaining three are located up Squaw Creek Road on the South side of the Valley in Edwards. Edwards is conveniently accessible by both Denver & Vail/Eagle airports. Edwards is approximately 100 miles from Denver International Airport and 30 miles from Vail/Eagle Airport this location has access unsurpassed by other Colorado resort areas making it easier for its owners to take advantage of their second home. Although Cordillera has many second homeowners in the area, there are also many full-time local residents, and second homeowners that spend months or seasons at a time in the area.

Cordillera offers larger home sites and newer homes and estates than is available in much of the other areas of Vail Valley. The pristine nature of the Cordillera land is accented by picturesque views of valleys and mountain peaks and home to wildlife that herd through the areas. Cordillera attracts people that wish to take advantage of the summer months just as much as the winter. In addition to that, the homeowners in Cordillera are able to get more for their money in terms of both land and home. The price per square foot is significantly lower than if you were to purchase directly in the villages of Vail or Beaver Creek. This means that for the same cost, when purchasing in Cordillera you are able to get a larger, more private lot with a lot more square footage. Being close proximity to both Vail and Beaver Creek, Cordillera agrees with the lifestyle of one who wants pristine nature and vastness of land but also like close proximity to all the amenities of the Vail Valley.
