Expansive decks

Mountain magic is made for sharing, so expansive spaces for entertaining are a must. Lakeridge offers plenty of room for dining, lounging and taking in the serene Lake Tahoe vistas from its large lovely deck among the trees.

Epic fireplaces

No mountain retreat would be complete without a cozy hearth for warmth, ambiance and snuggles. Meadows’ stone fireplace is a grand centerpiece, bringing together the natural and modern elements of this contemporary Vail home.

Walls of windows

If your second home offers breathtaking views, you’ll want equally grand windows to frame them. Pine Point’s luxurious great room is balanced by the natural woodland beauty just on the other side of its stunning walls of windows.

Majestic mornings 

Ah….now this is why we dream of mountain living. Waking up to a backdrop of blue skies and snowy peaks sets the tone for the rest of your day — especially in exclusive Mountain Village, which is just a short walk to shops and the Vail Ski Resort gondola.
