Arrowhead Condominium for Sale

When browsing the MLS today I found the lowest price per square foot condo in Arrowhead, the Seasons 106. It is located in the heart of Arrowhead, within walking distance of the community’s greatest amenities: the Country Club of the Rockies golf course, the Alpine Club, restaurant Vista, and the base of the Arrowhead ski mountain (which connects to the world class Beaver Creek mountain.) Seasons 106 is surrounded by gorgeous landscaping, ponds, and waterfalls, and the condominium features a club room, pool table, and TV.

A ski/golf/mountain condo under $700,000? Too good to be true.

The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa’s grand opening party was a hit!? One of the best events of the summer to be sure.? Over 1000 people are sure to agree; the food, service, music and atmosphere all were top notch and highlighted this beautiful property!

The?hotel’s interior?is comfortable and inviting in a mountain modern style, offering many places to sit and enjoy the massive mountain views towards Beaver Creek.? The “green” bar in the lobby area offers only organic beverages (wine, beer and spirits etc.)?and the Restaurant Avondale exceeded expectations both in food and design.? Inside this excellent property, one feels in a different place and time slows down; a sanctuary unto itself.

East Vail ( a favorite of mine) is one of the only communities here in the Vail Valley that still feels like a ski town.? Mountains and trees dominate the views, with only very limited commercial development.? (the liquor store complex by Pitkin Creek and the Bighorn Bistro at the Vail Racquet Club)? Ski bums still live side by side with millionaire vacationers.
