Vail villageVail surrounds us with beauty which appeals to all the senses. Walking in front of Village Center Buildings, the ice sculptures on Gore Creek caught my eye. Lively music was playing from one of the 5 or 6 restaurants facing the creek. Sensory overload was occurring with the aromas of lunch cooking at Vail restaurants, Up the Creek, Sweet Basil, and Tavern on the Gore. The creek was moving and making its own music. How lucky I am to live and work in Vail! Visitors and bridal photographers are not the only ones trying to capture the Gore Creek beauty.

133 SOUTH FAIRWAY DRIVE, Beaver Creek real estate

 I really love this home because it is perfect for so many different buyers – it is the ultimate family mountain home, or it could be the perfect corporate retreat. Located just minutes to the ski slopes and Beaver Creek Village shops and restaurants, this home offers multiple entertainment spaces. From a large wooden bar and billiards room, to a private game room with wonderful views, to a media room, there are endless rooms to enjoy. There are also multiple large decks, a master suite on its own level, 5 guest bedroom suites, and my personal favorite feature, a wood-burning fireplace. This home has been reduced and is offered for $3,475,000

285 HOLDEN ROAD, Beaver Creek real estate


We just put this 5,724 SqFt home on the market and I believe it is a great deal! It is situated on a bright and sunny homesite with sweeping mountain views. With 5 bedroom suites and a caretaker’s unit, this residence is also great for large families. The large deck overlooks the lights of Avon, and the home boasts soaring ceilings and widows that view sweeping mountain vistas. This home is offered for $3,100,000

This is a local’s favorite!  Northside Coffee & Kitchen is located north of I 70 at the Avon exit on Nottingham Road across the interstate from Beaver Creek.  This is a great place serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The pastries are baked fresh every morning and they are awesome.  I think the sour cream donuts are my favorite!  Besides pastries you can order a full breakfast from Eggs Benedict, breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros with red chili to pancakes.


For Lunch, the Rueben sandwich is my favorite, served on freshly baked marble rye bread and I think it is the best in the Vail Valley. The burgers and fries are great and a good value.  The Dinner menu has something for everyone. For an appetizer, the prime rib and filet eggrolls are to die for!  Served with two dipping sauces, a chipotle and a sweet hot.  The specialty is prime rib which is excellent, served over mashed potatoes and fresh steamed vegetables. The fish and chips are excellent and is the seafood pot pie.  This restaurant does get crowded but it is worth the wait. Click here for the menus.
