Wonderful resort located within walking/biking distance from Lionhead or Vail Villages. The path runs along the river, and is just steps from the resort itself. The same river is also visible from the pool area, allowing you to enjoy the sound of rushing water, as well. The pool area is perfect, though it can get pretty packed during prime times. It's heated, has a delicious pool-side bar and restaurant, fire pit, and spacious jacuzzi.
The front desk and concierge were both extremely helpful throughout our stay, giving recommendations on restaurants and also giving us complimentary late checkout after learning my husband and I were celebrating our 8th anniversary.
The only concern we had with our stay was when we rented bikes at the resort, the employee who helped us was not very knowledgable. Although very courteous, he had no idea how to install the child carrier attachment for our 9 month old. My husband is the one who figured it out. We then rode our bikes with the carrier to the Village, meanwhile thinking the carrier didn't
accommodate her very well, just to find out it was meant for children 18 months or older. She was 9 months too young for the carrier! The staff should have
been aware of this, as it was a serious safety issue.
Overall though, it was a great stay, and we would certainly recommend it to our friends and family.
