The location is this property on the stream at the end of the walking trail makes it special and private, yet super convenient to everything in Vail with a short and lovely walk. Beautiful pool and grounds, everything is very well maintained inside and out! Very spacious room layout and very comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for the river view rooms for views of the slopes and more privacy.

Right off 70,nice quiet location can't hear the hwy. A short walk minutes away on the pretty trail right in back to Vail Village. Can even walk to the pretty Betty Ford Gardens. Also a quick walk to the transportation center to catch busses. The units look out Vail Mountain from the back. Most of the bedrooms face the pool in front but all the balconies and patios are in back along the pretty scenic mountain. We had for 1 week a 1 bed 2 full bath, 2 TV's,full kitchen unit that was on the first floor. The front actually faced the office but that was just the bedroom window, the back was such a pretty view of the pines and Vail Mountain and the sound of the Gore Creek running was very nice to sit out and enjoy. Every unit has 1 assigned parking space, most are underground, some are outside. Nice pool, 2 spas, badminton court,3 BBQ's, nice landscaping and flowers, very clean. Some reviews mentioned that it is an old building , it is very well maintained by an excellent maintenance staff and kept up to date looking. They have upgraded the units and ours was accommodating and comfortable.
The full kitchen has everything you need. There is an electric stove which I am not used to so it took some time to finally get the cooking right, but all ok. There was not a table in ours to eat at, but there was a breakfast bar . No A/C, but you are up in elevation in Colorado, open the sliding door and you will get plenty of comfort. They do provide a floor fan if you need it. Thought maybe if they could put a small ceiling fan in the bedroom that would be a nice touch.All have fireplaces. No fitness center, but go out and take a walk ,get a bike, swim in the pool. Being summer all the greenery and flowers were super, trying to picture it in the winter, must really be pretty here in the winter time.
We needed a couple items taken care of in the unit and no sooner did I call the desk and the staff was right at the door.Took care of everything. The front desk staff is very welcoming and friendly. Very efficient telling you everything you need to know about the property. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher level unit for more spectacular views

This Resort was probably the best location of any places that we have stayed in Vail. Short walk to the Village, shops and restaurants. Right on Gore Creek, so the trails and walks to shopping couldn't have been prettier. Right next to the Betty Ford Gardens. Wildflowers galore!

The Villa was beautiful, comfortable, and impeccable. The Tuesday Welcome Barbeque was fun with guests, exchangers, and owners.

Will definitely choose the Wren again!

Room Tip: We were on the 4th. floor (top floor) so we had vaulted ceilings, and a beautiful view!

We like to ski in our retirement, but we do it on a budget. We have been to the Wren a few times on a timeshare exchange. The building is old but rooms are modern and clean with great views facing Vail Mountain. Service is excellent; outdoor hot tubs and pool are close at hand, and the shuttle for skiers and visitors to Vail Village and surroundings makes getting there easy. There is also a path along the river for a modest walk to Vail Village. Maybe best of all for winter weather, they have underground parking with a space for each room number. The value for our exchange was excellent.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a nice view of the Eastern end of Vail Resort and worth obtaining if possible.

We are staying for a week and thoroughly enjoying our stay. The rooms are up to date with flat screen TYs, fireplace, full kitchen and two full bathrooms. It is well stocked for the stay. The front desk if friendly and helpful in everything we need. Underground parking is also nice, so you don't have to worry about digging your car out from under the snow. But especially being so close the the village, right on top of Gore creek and with views of Vail Mountain and Golden Peak was especially nice.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms face Gore Creek and the slopes, others face Betty Ford Park. We really really lik...

We rented this location the week of Thanksgiving for a family getaway. We got a one bed two bath with full kitchen. There was plenty of room for our family of 4. The kitchen was great to have especially during Thanksgiving. It's a short walk to Vail Village which has tons of shopping and restaurants. This location has a shuttle that runs daily to the lifts. There are grocery stores about a 5 min drive away. I would definitely recommend this location.

Room Tip: Nice room but a little far from the lifts.

We stayed for 6 nights in August and totally loved it. We found it by looking at VRBO and inquired by phone. The unit shown on VRBO looked so rustic and "Colorado". They said that unit was being remodeled and booked us in another mountain facing unit. They immediately emailed us a contract and pictures of the unit. We were not happy with "the look" of the condo and called back...again they immediately emailed pictures of another unit. I was very impressed with the service and use of technology. Pictures can be deceiving, but it definitely helps.
We were very impressed with the condo and view. So nice to wake up to a view of the mountains, to have coffee on the deck and to have drinks in the evening on the deck...ski run above, creek below.
The only downside is the bedroom is on the front side of the unit and if you want an open window you will get the noise of I-70. You are also close to the events at Ford park and can hear the concerts some evenings.
We took our bikes, kept them in the bike rack by the pool and biked everywhere...Cascade, Vail Village, Lionshead...it was great to keep the car in the garage.
We totally loved it and will be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in 405, this was a 1 beedroom king, 2 bath, full kitchen, loft w/2 twin beds
