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.. (720) 275-3186 or Hope@Gatewayland.com

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!

A Celebration of the Legacy of Vail!

A celebration of the legacy of Vail, commemorating it’s founders from the 10th Mountain Division this Friday.!

January 18, 2019 at 6pm, the side of Vail Mountain will light up with the iconic 10th Mountain Division logo as skiers dressed in traditional ski trooper uniforms, led by torchlight, will make their way down to the base of Gondola One. From there, a parade of military veterans in uniform, will march down Bridge street, over the covered bridge, and conclude at the 10th Mountain Statue.

Leading the parade is Sandy Treat, now 95 years young, a 10th Mountain Division veteran from Camp Hale. A celebration of the rich history of Vail and what started much of the Colorado ski industry today!

There will also be a feature film showcasing the history and legacy of Vail projected at the base of Gondola One. Along with extended hours of the newly renovated Colorado Snowsports Museum for guests to learn about Colorado’s ski history. Vail would not have become what it is today without the 10th Mountain Division!

Fun for the whole family, photographers will be available for guests to take pictures with the soldiers. Come early there will be a limited number of Legacy of Vail pins given as well as hot cocoa!

  If you can’t make it, come to one of the additional dates February 15th or March 8th!
