Our lovely local neighbor in Edwards at the Riverwalk is celebrating 20 outstanding years of business! If you haven’t ventured over to The Bookworm you’re missing out on a local gem! You’ll find the latest heart warming novels, cutesy local Colorado made gifts and a delicious menu of breakfast and lunch options.
Founded in 1996, The Bookworm of Edwards started in a van. Kathy Westover would travel between coffee shops selling new books to down-valley readers. The next summer, she partnered with former bookkeeper Neda Jansen to open an actual bricks-and-mortar bookstore in November 1997. The Bookworm drastically jumped in size from the back seat of a van to 700 square feet.
So the next time you’re in The Riverwalk pop into Gateway Real Estate and introduce yourself to one of our awesome local brokers! Then you can prowl across the street and enjoy the wonderful surroundings of Vail Valley’s independent bookstore, The Bookworm.
Being a Colorado mover and shaker myself I am itching to see snow fall and get on top of the mountain; thankfully The Bookworm over in Edwards Riverwalk keeps me creative and intrigued with their long list of fun free to-do’s…
The Bookworm not only is conveniently located near across the street to our Gateway Real Estate office in Edwards but they share many options for tasty healthy eats as well as ‘keep you going’ drinks like their americano which is my personal favorite.
This week the Bookworm shares with us the stories of Doug Coombs as he will be live and in the flesh at The Bookworm discussing his life as a legendary extreme skier traveler. If you haven’t picked up the thrilling read, Tracking the Wild Coomba: The Life of Legendary Skier Doug Coombs I suggest you do as it gets readers in the mood for ski season and quiets some of our fears as extreme mountain seekers.
So while we’re still praying for snow take a stroll over to Edwards… Take a browse at the copious listings we have in beautiful Colorado and elsewhere and we invite you to come into our office; sit down with a broker and get those questions answered. The Bookworm hosts Doug Coombs this Thursday November 10th from 4-6PM

Our Annual July 4 Office Party in Vail Village before, during and after the Vail July 4 Parade was a great success. The Vail Office is located on the South end of the International Bridge along Gore Creek on the parade route on the West Side of the Sitzmark Lodge and just North of Check Point Charley. The Village was filled for the parade at 10 a.m. and then most of the day and into the night for the July 4 Fireworks and partying after. Coming into the office today, Sunday, July 5, the street vendors were setting up for day. This location is unbelievable, right in the middle of all the action. Check out our website, gatewayland.com and pick out the realtor that you want to work with in the Vail or Edwards offices. We are all so fortunate to be here where we are, and hopefully you wherever you are, in this great Country we call the United States.
