There’s nothing like the view of snow-covered ski runs to whet one’s appetite for an easy-care vacation getaway. This stone and wood-sided residence at the Chalet at the Lodge at Vail 2 takes in south-facing vistas of the Gore Range and the slopes in Vail, Colorado.

Set near Vail Ski Resort’s Gondola One and the Vail Village shopping and dining hub, the luxury dwelling is a welcoming retreat on winter days and nights. Vaulted wood ceilings, radiant-heated wood floors, custom finishes and a stone-clad raised-hearth gas fireplace combine to bring a natural warmth to the nearly 4,700 square feet of interiors.

Walls of windows allow light and views into the open-plan living and dining room. Extensive decks with wood railing star-and-moon cutouts and thick wooden rafter tails add a European flavor to the complex.

A bar and a thick wooden support beam mark the transition to the kitchen, which has a center island range, a farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances and a tile backsplash. A bay window breakfast area looks out on evergreens.

And don’t even think about trudging up steps in wet boots after a day outdoors. In addition to an equipment room in which to leave your gear, there’s an elevator to whisk you to the four en-suite bedrooms in search of dry socks.

There is also an additional family/game/media room that can be used as a gathering place for family or friends. Lounging, watching movies, having a snack or playing cards or billiards are all possible in this spacious area. In all, there are six bathrooms in the building.
