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..

As we approach October there are several happenings that ignite our excitment here at Gateway; Halloween festivites, tasty seasonal local brews, and coming together as a community to raise money and awarenss in the race to cure breast cancer.

Kicking off the fist of October with the 7th annual Pinktoberfest! Hosted by Eagle’s Dusty Boot Bar it’ll be fun for all ages!

  

Throughout October, Aria Spa & Club at the Vail Cascade Resort have a variety of ways that support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A month-long spa promotion and special yoga sessions will provide members and guests with ways to remain strong, building awareness of the prevention of the disease. The local beneficiary of all the charity events is the Shaw Regional Cancer Center in Edwards.For the third year, Aria Spa will donate $5 to the Shaw Regional Cancer Center for every massage, facial or body treatment that is booked in October. Additionally, the spa is offering a 40 percent discount on all massages, facials, and body treatments, and 20 percent off all nail services through Nov. 30. On Oct. 7 and 8, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Aria Club will host a new charity event to raise money to find a cure for breast cancer. The 24 Hours of Aria Challenge encourages participants to get a great cardio workout while supporting the cause, with a suggested donation of $5 for each half hour time slot. Select cardio fitness equipment will be reserved with pink ribbons just for the event. The two days of the event are free and open to all! The Aria tennis program is also involved in raising breast cancer awareness by holding the annual “Rally for the Cause” on Oct. 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The tennis rally will kick off the action with a Longest Rally contest. WOW! Hard to pass up such incredible deals as well as positive active fun for the whole family!

This year, Shaw Regional Cancer Center is asking you, Eagle & Summit county residents, to share your messages of inspiration and hope through photography! Let your photo make a difference by positively impacting those who see it. Enter your photo at PinktoberPhoto.com or email your photo to Jeff.Owens@vvmc.com with your name and phone number, and we’ll post it for you.

Dogma Athletica in The Riverwalk at Edwards has teamed up with the Shaw Center to promote health and awareness and to give back to the community. Dogma is sponsoring a yoga challenge, encouraging yogis to stretch, sweat and decompress — not only to benefit their own well being, but to give back to those in need. For each yoga class attended, Dogma will donate 50 cents to the Shaw Center. The more classes attended, the more Dogma will donate. In the spirit of healthy competition, Dogma will be tracking how many classes each yogi attends, and the yogis who attend the most classes in the month of October will win prizes. Dogma will also encourage yogis to wear pink throughout the month of October in the spirit of breast cancer awareness.
