Avon? Nottingham Lake? Wait a minute - is this Colorado, or England? Well, just put down your bags, step out on the balcony of this beautiful one bedroom vacation rental condo and savor the majestic Rockies right in front of you. Though it's said that Avon was indeed named for England's Avon Valley (Shakespeare's home) by English immigrants, the Bard didn't have this awesome view out his back door! Located 10 miles west of its glitzy neighbor, Vail, Avon is ideally situated to deliver the total recreational package: skiing at nearby Beaver Creek Resort (two minutes away), fishing, kayaking and rafting on the Eagle River (runs right by it), an...d all the hiking and biking you could imagine in the surrounding Rockies!
From the horse harness mirror to the snowshoes on the wall, the feel of this vacation rental condo, with room for four, is "cozy Western." Though the Colorado sun is infamously fickle, winter temperatures in the Rockies can plunge, making this condo's gas fireplace and comfy furniture a welcome respite from the cold. Settle in and do some reading as you enjoy music on the CD player. There's also a DVD player, so bring along some of your favorite flicks!
Lest you forget you're in ski country, step into the bedroom. The skis and poles on the wall are a reminder that great skiing is right outside the door. Plenty of room in the big king bed, and you can watch some TV before going to sleep. There's a sofa bed as well for that extra person(s). The condo has one full bathroom and a washer and dryer, saving you trips to the laundromat.
Lots of choices when it comes to eating! In addition to the fridge, stove, dishwasher, and microwave, you'll also find a blender, a toaster, and a coffee grinder. But if you're giving your chef some time off, that's certainly not a problem. There are 38 restaurants in Avon area serving every taste. Head 10 minutes east to Vail for even more choices.
Stay at this lovely vacation rental condo, and you're at the very doorway to Beaver Creek Resort! The fun starts right across the street at the Avon Recreation Center where you'll not only find a hot tub, yoga, cardio and Pilates classes and athletic equipment of every sort, there's also an aquatic center that includes a water slide and lazy river tubing. (Daily fee for the Rec. Center). In nearby Nottingham Park you can rent paddleboats in the summer and ice skate in the winter. The park also boasts the largest 4th of July fireworks display in Colorado. Skiers have direct access to the slopes of Beaver Creek by simply stepping out the door and hopping on the Riverfront Express Gondola. In addition to the resort's complimentary shuttle service, the Town of Avon's free bus system hooks up to the larger Eco Bus system that will take to Vail and other parts of the Valley.
So make this amazing vacation rental condo your getaway headquarters in Colorado's Vail Valley and enjoy easy access to fun and relaxation - indoors and out!
