We've stayed at this condo for 30 years on an annual timeshare basis. It a great value and walking distance to the Vail Village and right next to the Gerald Ford Ampatheature and Betty Ford Alpine Gardens.

When I booked our room, I made sure that the room was facing Vail Mountain as we've stayed in condos before in Vail where the noise from the interstate was very loud all day and night. I was assured that all of the "loft" rooms faced the mountain. That is true to a point -- the living area and deck... More

My wife and I and our kids have been coming here for over 30 years. The Wren is a great place to stay no matter what size group and the location is perfect for walking to anyplace. We actually like to stay on the 4th floor overlooking the Gore River because the view is awesome! You have the large playground... More

This was a return trip to The Wren for us! We visited in 2012, and returned there at the end of March 2014. The first place we called for lodging was The Wren. They were very accommodating and personable on the phone, and the price can't be beat for the location. I would absolutely recommend checking them out. Though we... More

The accommodations are very nice, convenient location, good shuttle to the slopes, and most importantly very reasonably priced. While within walking distance, it will probably be a good 20 min hike w/your gear, so take the shuttle. The only downside was that the staff isn't onsite after 8pm; we were trying to sleep while a party was raging in the... More

I am not afraid to spend money on a vacation, however, some hotels in Vail will choke you with cost. I had to go one tier down from my usual and found "The Wren". This is a condo, not a hotel. Room 102 was great. Off the (unit is on the first floor which was great to not climb stairs... More

The Wren at Vail is absolutely the best value for the super services provided in the entire Vail Valley. Only a three minute shuttle ride to the lifts, impeccably clean, constantly updated, and very responsive staff. My family and I will be back next year, and we are bringing the grand-kids.
