We had a very nice stay in a 1bedroom unit. Like everyone else's comments, the layout is unique. You enter the unit through the sleeping area which has the bed up against the wall. Built for efficient use of the area. Small single bed also in the sleeping area, perfect for a small child or someone who doesn't toss and turn. Sofa bed, usual "ok" in a pinch - probably a little more comfy just to put a sheet on the sofa and sleep on it. Lack of a cooktop or oven, but electric frying pan worked well for cooking up bacon and some easy dinners. Microwave, coffee maker with plenty of supplies. Small fridge, but perfect for just two of us. Kept everything really cold, in fact when I turned it up to max cold, some food froze. Plenty of towels for two adults Great indoor and outdoor hot tubs and pools. Sauna was nice as long as it was already warm or you turned it on plenty of time in advance. Took a while to warm up, but very nice once it was warm. Plenty of activities. Free shuttle to Beaver Creek for skiing. Great supply of very hot water. Great after a day of skiing. Air is dry, so picked up a humidifier at nearby walmart which helped keep some humidity in our unit. Heating was great. Wood burning fireplace and small deck. Quiet in spite of being right off route 70. Indoor pools close at 9 and we really did not hear kids running around at all. Lots of activities as well as ping pong. Stairs everywhere is unique, but that was a minor nuisance. Staff was great at check in and when two lights were out in out unit maintenance was there within 30 mins of our call. Garage parking available. Overall very pleasant stay. Internet only in the common areas, but I kind of appreciated the lack of service. Multiple fire pits and a gas fire pit outside at pool was really hot vein in December. One bedroom is comfortable for 2adults, probably still comfy with one child, but 4 adults would be tight. Housekeeping replaced all towels on day 4 of our 7 day stay. Subway on premise for quick meal.
Very convenient to vail as well. Did not try the bus to vail. We parked near the Safeway and took the free vail bus
