Travel Blogs from Vail
A long drive today, but the scenery was well worth it. We stopped at areas where the Indians had built their homes in huge caves, And saw spectacular scenery all day. At a spectacular bend in the river, we had champagne and nibbles. Now we are in Moab, on a Navajo Indian reservation. The view from our balcony is gorgeous, ...
The day started with a trip to the Butterhorn Bakery for the girls and I. Amazing breakfasts!!! Brian had to get "back to work" after two days off. The kids and I explored a few parks in town. We took a ride to Loveland Pass and ended up walking around the outlets before crashing. A great, restful ...
Left Denver at 7.30am. First stop was Vaile....a beautiful ski resort, with buildings like being in Austria. Wish we could have stayed there longer. Into the Moab area .......so stunning and massive. Big rock mountains and strange rock formations both sides of the bus, and it looks like there could be landslides any time !! Absolutely spectacular. Moab tonight, and we're going on a ...
... fountains with climbing things in them (so M and J had a lot of fun climbing)! There is a beautiful stream with rather rapid water flowing all through the town - it is such a beautiful thing to see, hear and enjoy! We had some fried calamari and french fries with drinks at a cute outdoor cafe and then meandered around endlessly. When we began to get tired, we returned to the hotel, relaxed a bit then went ...

The Canyon that we went through had been devastated by a swollen Big Johnson River and many houses and log cabins had been destroyed, the piles of discarded household belongings was still evident.
We Climbed in altitude quickly through Estes Park, Grandby and Kremmling and then entered another National Park, this time the Rock Mountains NP. Words such as Epic, Awesome and even fully sick (if ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Evergreen Lodge Vail
Enjoyed the Evergreen
Have just returned from a 10 night stay at the Evergreen Lodge in Vail (3 -13 Jan 07). Expensive, but for me worth it when you can get back to the comfort of your hotel room in a very short time after a long tiring day on the slopes. The hotel is within walking distance of the Lionshead lifts (although when wearing ski boots it is more comfortable to take the tree-lined 2-minute walk to the stop for the free ski bus and then ride one stop to Lionshead). The room was large, with a balcony looking onto the mountain. The staff were generally pleasant and helpful. I cannot comment on the restaurant, but I enjoyed the Altitude Sports Bar (nice chili). I hope to go there again next year.
Siamo stati bene allo Evergreen
Siamo appena tornati da un soggiorno di dieci notti all'Evergreen Lodge a Vail (dal 3 al 13 gennaio 2007). Costoso, ma per me ne valeva la pena perché si poteva tornare in camera rapidamente dopo una lunga giornata sulle piste. Gli impianti di risalita di Lionshead erano raggiungibili a piedi dall'albergo (anche se, indossando scarponi da sci, era più comodo prendere la navetta gratuita a due minuti a piedi di distanza). La camera era ampia, con un balcone che si affacciava sulla montagna. Il personale era perlopiù gentile, piacevole e disponibile. Non posso commentare il ristorante, ma mi è piaciuto l'Altitude Sports Bar (ottimo chili). Spero di tornarci l'anno prossimo.
The location was perfect between both the Lionshead and Vail Villages. Free Shuttle bus is behind the hotel and comes thru every 10 minutes or so. The beds were a little soft but werent bad. The room was recently renovated and looked nice. accomodations are not fancy but were nicely done. Overall we had a great time in Vail and this hotel worked out well for us and I would not hesitate using again.
A Great Stay
We came to Vail this year for medical reasons. The Evergreen Lodge was just perfect for our cause. Stedman Hawkins Clinic, in the Vail Valley Medical Center, was located just behind the hotel making the Evergreen a great choice for us. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The rooms were large and the rates were the best in the village.
We asked to see a couple of condominiums located in the lodge. The three we saw were beautiful. When retuning to Vail I will not hesitate to stay in the Evergreen. It is close to the slopes and the shops. Thanks EVERGREEN for A GREAT STAY!
Hated the Evergreen Lodge
This hotel was absolutely terrible! Our room did not have air conditioning. Supposedly the rooms have recently been remodeled, but you couldn't tell. There were stains on many of the hallway carpets. The room itself was dingy. Several of the front desk employees were either rude or not very helpful. The hotel itself was not very convenient to the shuttle route. It offered very limited choices for workout equipment and its restaurant was not up to par. I would definitely not recommend it.
Perfect location, great value for the money
We stayed for 3 nights in February. The location was perfect....I do not think we could have done better. We walked to the Lionshead lift for skiing and could walk to Vail Village without an issue (10 minute walk). The bus stop was right outside the door and the buses run frequently. The room was comfortable & clean. We enjoyed having 2 closets and 2 bathroom sinks...I would highly recommend staying here.
Good for what we needed - not luxury
In terms of location you can't fault this place, right between Lionshead and Vail and right at the bottom of the Lionshead ski lift. There is a bus that runs right outside the door for those of you who don't want to walk.
The rooms were spacious and well laid out, however the decor throughout the hotel was in need of a revamp i.e. it was starting to look a bit 'tired'. The boot room (for the skiers amoung you) was also a bit strange - you had to walk in through recpetion to get to it - odd!?
However it was great for a first time in Vail, and when you are skiing you aren't there a whole lot anyway.
All in all I would reccomend it - but woulden't go back until they decorated and cleaned the pool!
Screamin Deal-Rocky Mountain High
My first time in Vail we stayed at the Evergreen Lodge. This place Rocked!!! Great place, great people.. 1 stop from the Gondola... Already got my reservations in for next year... I hear they just remodeled.. It just gets better!!!
Highly recommened-Great Deal.
Best place in Vail!+
Heaven in the rockies. Fantastic location. The rooms were great and the service was even better. I particularily enjoyed the Altitude Club sports bar located in the lobby of the hotel. With the crowd present, it seemed like the only place in town to watch a game.
