The Happiness of Watching Snow Fall.

I am sitting at my desk in the Vail Village and watching the snow fall. Big fluffy snowflakes that are creating a winter wonderland. The white stuff is relaxing and mesmerizing it’s hard to get any work finished.

A snowflake is a single ice crystal that falls through the sky as snow. Complex shapes emerge and appear white in color but are actually clear ice and I could watch it snow all day!

Matsuhisa Vail – The Gardener

Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s second Colorado location opened in Vail in 2011 in the heart of Vail Village in the Solaris with his new-style Japanese cuisine influenced from his classical training in Tokyo and his life abroad in Peru, Argentina, and around the world.

Start your dining experience off with an amazing craft cocktail. My favorite in The Gardener, which combines Hendrick’s gin, cilantro, serranos, ginger. lime juice and simple syrup. It is also delicious with Ilegal Mezcal instead of gin. Cheers and welcome to Winter!

Home away from home at The Inn at Riverwalk!

If you haven’t gotten the opportunity to stay at the newly renovated Inn at Riverwalk you are missing out! Nestled between the mountains and river in downtown Edwards, the Inn at Riverwalk is my go to hotel for a weekend getaway or inviting family in town!

Tastefully renovated from top to bottom, with a cozy mountain modern feel. It was so relaxing sitting in the hot tub as you hear the river running past! The lobby is warm and inviting, we cozied up next to the fireplace drinking mocha from the espresso machine and snacking on their DIY trail mix bar.

There is something for everyone in the family to do with its prime Riverwalk location. Shopping and dining, ski shuttle to Beaver Creek and Arrowhead, along with free snowshoes and sleds for the kids. Even bikes to take out in the summertime!

It felt like home away from home, and reasonably priced which is hard to come by in the valley! Looking to buy/sell a home in the area? I would love to go over your options with you! I can be reached at (720) 275-3186 or RealEstatewithHope@gmail.com!

Another perk to living in Arrowhead!

This winter your favorite golf course turns to winter fun, transforming the greens to groomed for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing! The Country Club of the Rockies and Arrowhead at Vail Association have agreed to maintain the course as it snows on the south side of Hwy 6, making for a fun and free way to enjoy the beautiful landscape. Available to all residents of Arrowhead, if your looking to buy we have an amazing duplex being built now, 38 Riverbend Drive on the 12th hole! Contact Hope Nickeson for more info..

Amazing ambiance at Vista in Arrowhead!

If your looking for the perfect place for a date night or celebration, Vista’s views can’t be beat! The beautiful venue paired with impeccable service makes it one of my go to restaurants in the Vail Valley. I love the private members only feel, but open to the public. Sit back and relax to the talented pianist and take in the amazing views off of the patio! Generous portions along with a build your own dinner option, makes it easy to cater to anyone’s wishes. The easily accessible Arrowhead and valet parking make Vista a prime spot if your looking to get out after a day on the slopes but don’t want to hassle with parking in a structure and maneuvering through the village. I will definitely be back, and this time with dessert!

I had the Colorado Buffalo Osso Bucco, DELICIOUS!
