I don’t want to gush but we just absolutely loved this place. Hated leaving it! The only drawback at the Wren was that it was a little further out to the edge of the main Vail area but anyone who can ski or snowboard shouldn’t have any trouble with the additional hike (- the hotel shuttle was too infrequent to...

Beautiful flowers, great garden for fresh salads and spices. Be sure to sign up for the pot luck when you arrive to meet other visitors and enjoy the great array of foods.

We had 2 units, one was great one was rundown. The customer service in the office was uneven and unreasonable. Totally unfriendly. We have stayed at the Wren for years. Great pool and shuttle but so miss the old office staff.

No matter what they tell you this place is NOT walkable to the slopes or to the village. The first shuttle to the slopes is at 8AM and the last shuttle to the resort is at 4:45PM so if you want to get a drink after a day of skiing you won't be able to get back to the Wren... More

We would like to recommend the many retail shops that you can use to store your equipment at in the village, and thus making that walk more enjoyable after skiing and a... More

We were delighted to stay in the Wren at the Eastern end of Vail. The balcony over looked the river and one of the ski areas. We chose to visit in the spring, the river was flowing nicely and most of the snow had melted from the mountain side. Our first views were of beautiful ruby throated humming birds that... More

The Wren also provides a ski shuttle seven days a week during the winter as another source of getting to Vail Village or Lionshead.

My favorite thing about Wren is the location because I love walking the trail along the creek from Wren to Vail village. It's a perfect warm up and cool down walk before and after skiing, which works only because we rent and store our gear at the shop and wear comfortable shoes. I've stayed in condos to the east and...

Booked thro RCI exchange. Units not new but good sized and well equipped and warm. Good bedding. Regular shuttle bus to the slopes very handy. At night only a 10 min walk to the village and shops / restaurants etc. Staff very helpful. Vail is expensive but good value food and beer at the Red Lion and the George.

Both sides of our building does have gorgeous views. The Wren looks forward to seeing... More
