Find this on VRBO. 1 Bedroom 2 Bathroom condo...yeah, didn't have to share with my husband :))) We had the top floor with an awesome balcony looking out at the Mountains and down on the Creek. Very Relaxing place. Right next to the Betty Ford Gardens. Just a short quick walk to the Vail Shuttle into town but you didn't...

The Wren gave us very much an at home feeling the entire time we were there. Staff was extremely helpful with information about summer activities and available discounts in the Vail Valley and surrounding areas. Our unit was up-to-date, clean and very comfortable. My kids loved the pool, hot tubs and game court (shuffleboard and bean bag toss); all of...

I don’t want to gush but we just absolutely loved this place. Hated leaving it! The only drawback at the Wren was that it was a little further out to the edge of the main Vail area but anyone who can ski or snowboard shouldn’t have any trouble with the additional hike (- the hotel shuttle was too infrequent to...

Beautiful flowers, great garden for fresh salads and spices. Be sure to sign up for the pot luck when you arrive to meet other visitors and enjoy the great array of foods. You can make or buy something to bring. The Wren supplies burgers, dogs, etc. Missing a seasoning? Ask a neighbor. Great way to meet ppl. The pool, game...

We had 2 units, one was great one was rundown. The customer service in the office was uneven and unreasonable. Totally unfriendly. We have stayed at the Wren for years. Great pool and shuttle but so miss the old office staff.

No matter what they tell you this place is NOT walkable to the slopes or to the village. The first shuttle to the slopes is at 8AM and the last shuttle to the resort is at 4:45PM so if you want to get a drink after a day of skiing you won't be able to get back to the Wren...

Patrick G, Yes, you are correct the walking distance while carrying your ski equipment can be cumbersome and our ski shuttle times are 8:00 am until 4:45 pm. We would like to recommend the many retail shops that you can use to store your equipment at in the village, and thus making that walk more enjoyable after skiing and a...

We were delighted to stay in the Wren at the Eastern end of Vail. The balcony over looked the river and one of the ski areas. We chose to visit in the spring, the river was flowing nicely and most of the snow had melted from the mountain side. Our first views were of beautiful ruby throated humming birds that...

Smoky63, The Vail area had great weather for skiing this past March and it is a unique experience to watch the groomers at night. We are glad you enjoyed using the outdoor heated pool and hot tubs, they are great after a long day of skiing. We look forward to seeing you next year.

jtreichel, Thank you for noting that we are a 10 minute walk to the village or Golden Peak. The Wren also provides a ski shuttle seven days a week during the winter as another source of getting to Vail Village or Lionshead. We are located at the east end of Vail Village and we have gorgeous views of Gore Range
