About this listing
This comfortable apartment has two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and family room in the lower level of our home. The quaint downtown, world-class skiing, hot springs, biking, hiking, and zip lining all nearby, make this a pleasant place to stay!
PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY, so you know what to expect of the space. A master bedroom with a queen bed comfortably sleeps 2, with a loveseat that is also a single hide-a-bed, should that be needed. The additional bedroom with twin bunkbeds, sleeps another 2 people. The furnished kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and a hot water pot; please note that there is no stove. There is a large family room on the same level as the apartment, complete with a gas fireplace and TV/dvd (WE DO NOT HAVE CABLE SERVICE, although the smart TV has Netflix and Amazon). We do have a dog, but he is not allowed in the lock-off, in order that we might keep the space comfortable for our guests with allergies. Because this apartment is in the lower level of our home, noise from above is to be expected, and although we try to limit the noise, between a dog, a teenager, and visiting adult children from time to time, you will know that there is activity above! We are located only 35 minutes from Vail, 25 minutes from Beaver Creek, 30 minutes from Glenwood Springs (famous for its hot springs), and 10 minutes from the Eagle County airport. We are also just minutes from hiking, biking, back country skiing, sledding, and rafting, and it's only a short walk to downtown!
The lower level of our home is shut off from the upper level rooms. The two floors are joined by a stairwell, closed off by doors into the two areas. You will have your own entrance into the family room, and another entrance (with locked door) into your private apartment. Currently, we do not offer our guests the use of the laundry facilities; however, there is a laundromat just 5 minutes away.
Interaction with guests
We are usually home during our guests' stays. We hope to greet you upon arriving, but will make arrangements if we cannot. We will be available to answer any questions regarding the house, the area, activities, etc. We will respect your privacy during your stay, but are happy to have you contact us with any questions that you might have.
When we moved to Eagle 26 years ago, we chose to because we enjoy all of the outdoor activities that are in abundance in our valley! The town of Eagle also has excellent dining venues, local shopping and coffee shops, and everything is within walking distance! Our home is just three blocks from Broadway St., where many of these amenities are found. Without driving, you can easily get to hiking and biking trails, and the Eagle River. Just a short drive away, Vail and Beaver Creek (both with world-class skiing, dining, and shopping) have activities and events almost year round. The drive through Glenwood Canyon (in which you can also bike on the bike trail or float on the river) is spectacular, and once arriving in the city of Glenwood Springs, you can enjoy swimming in the hot springs, dining, and shopping.
Our home is three blocks away from the Eagle County transit system, which is a bus route extending from Gypsum on the west, to Vail on the east. A single ride is only $4. The Eagle County Airport is a 10 minute drive away by car, via Highway 6. Colorado Mountain Express is a van service that provides shuttles to and from Denver International Airport, as well as Eagle County Airport. We do provide free parking at our home.
Other things to note
Should we not be able to greet you upon your arrival, we will make sure to leave you with detailed check-in information, prior to your visit.
Absolutely NO marijuana, smoking or drugs in or on the premises. Nor do we allow pets. We ask that you do not have extra guests beyond the amount of your booking without prior approval. We also ask that the house is quiet by 11:00 pm.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends, studying the Bible, gardening, reading, campfires, rivers, going on long walks, and much more. Recently, I had my first stay at another airbnb, and decided to come home and create my own listing. I am looking forward to meeting new people, hosting, and staying at other airbnbs!
