Opened in 1962, The Lodge At Vail was originally built to replicate the famous and time-honoured Lodge at Sun Valley (Idaho), and is now the cornerstone of Vail Village at the foot of Vail Mountain.  The mountain's main lift is located right outside the back door of The Lodge At Vail, so your transition from a delightful breakfast to shussing down the slopes is nearly effortless, and when you're done skiing for the day, you need merely to step inside to join the hottest apres-ski going on in Vail.

And its location in the heart of Vail Village means that an abundance of shops, art galleries, restaurants, and nightlife is only steps away.

The Lodge At Vail continually receives awards and accolades for good reason - its understated elegance and intimate luxury, combined with a high level of personal service, make this chalet-style alpine lodge a favorite of skiers from all over the world, and a stay here will make it your favorite as well.


The Lodge At Vail offers a multitude of accommodation choices to suit your needs - from the charmingly intimate rooms perfect for a romantic getaway for two, to the spacious suites, condos, and townhomes for a family vacation.

The sun shines in Colorado over 300 days each year, so you can expect your stay at The Lodge At Vail to provide you with many perfect ski days - what could be better?

And with 5,289 acres, Vail is the largest single ski mountain in North America, featuring seven powdery bowls, backcountry skiing of Blue Sky Basin and the front side.  1,500 acres of corduroy means the most groomed terrain on the planet.  Featuring 193 trails (the longest of which is 4 miles) and a vertical rise of 3,450 fee, you don’t have to look for sweet spots here – they find you. 

Boasting a yearly average of 346 inches of snowfall, which in the mostly-dry climate of the Rockies means powder, Vail will change your idea of a good time.


The Lodge At Vail boasts 2 terrific on-site restaurants, the Wildflower and Cucina Rustica, as well as the very popular piano bar called Mickey's Bar.  

The Wildflower's menu is an eclectic array of creative American cuisine prepared with the freshest and finest in produce, seafood, and meats, under the supervision of Chef De Cuisine Steven Topple.  This restaurant offers one of the area's only tasting menus, which changes daily, and features the use of seasonal fruits, herbs, and vegetables grown right in their own garden.  The Wildflower also provides an extensive list of wine selections from around the world, which has earned Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence, and has been featured in the highly acclaimed ZAGAT Survey as "the #1 restaurant in Vail," as well as one of the "Top 10 Restaurants in Colorado."

The Lodge At Vail Dining photoCucina Rustica serves breakfast daily, including the freshest fruits and berries, home-baked pastries and breads, home-made muesli, and traditional American buffet breakfast dishes. During the ski season, their skiers lunch buffet offers fresh carved meats, home-made soups, unique salads, varied hot entrees, cheeses and home-baked breads. 

In the winter evenings the restaurant transforms into Vail's premier Italian restaurant.  With a nightly antipasti table and an extensive menu of soups, salads, pastas, prime meats and fresh seafood, the most taxing part of your stay is what to choose for dinner.  Cucina Rustica's culinary team takes great pride in using as many of Colorado's native products as possible to enhance their dishes, and all the pastas and gnocchis are home-made - the chefs even hand-pull their own mozzarella!  Outstanding food accompanied by Colorado's most diverse Italian wine list ensures an evening to remember.

Mickey's Bar is a true Vail institution with real local flavor.  Mickey Poage has been delighting generations of guests as his fingers dance across the ebony and ivory of the grand piano that permanently rests near the fireplace.

For those who like to explore their surroundings, Vail Village offers up a wide variety of excellent dining options - from the casual to the elegant, as well as the casually elegant, you'll find whatever you're looking for - American cusine, authentic Mexican food, fine French dining, pizza places, and steakhouses.  And not to be missed are the several on-mountain establishments - from the adventure of getting there via a gondola ride and/or a snowcat shuttle to the experience of a superb meal, you'll love every minute.
