I recently stayed at the Antlers with friends for a vacation in Vail. Myself and two friends stayed in a three bedroom, two bath condo (number 708) and our other two friends stayed in a one bedroom, one bath condo (number 608). The location is great, just a short 3-5 minute walk to the base of the Lionshead gondola area. Number 708 is quite recently updated and is a top floor unit with two stories and a lofted ceiling in the main room looking up at the mountain and overlooking Gore creek as well as the pool and hot tub area. It is a fairly small foot print, but the 5 of us were able to gather for meals and socializing comfortably. There is no A/C so it is a bit warm in the mid-day, but with the balcony door open and kitchen window open, there is a nice cross-draft that keeps things comfortable. The kitchen is updated and has all the supplies needed for cooking (you provide all food stuffs including spices/salt/pepper). 708 is also the end unit closest to the elevator and stairs, but I did not find it noisy with passing by foot traffic. The bed in the master BR is very comfortable. There is a gas BBQ grill on the balcony which is convenient and a great view for your BBQ!
I visited downstairs (608), which has not yet been updated in the main room and bedroom, but the kitchen has been updated. It is a bit on the small side and not as bright at upstairs as it does not have lofted ceiling. The couple said the room was comfortable but small.
The pool area and hot tubs are very nice and were not too crowded. Even though some guests had small kids, from the condo it was not too loud.
The front desk staff were very friendly and strove to be helpful. My friends' condo downstairs had not been completely prepared for their arrival. When it was noticed the bed hadn't been made up, they called the desk and the situation was immediately remedied, and the front desk very thoughtfully expressed their apologies with a hand written note and bottle of wine.
The Antlers is also dog friendly and provided food and water dishes. The bike/walking path is right outside downstairs along the creek and is perfect for dog walking.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this property, particularly condo 708 if you have a group requiring 3BR.
