“good place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2008

Great find. Close to Golden Peak lift. Shuttle bus provided for morning and afternoon pick ups. Condo comfortable, needs updating however had all we needed to make our week a very happy holiday. 5 min walk to village. Realistic price for a family for the position and level of the accommodation.

The Wren is an older timeshare building that has some permanent residents. It is located on the stream at the east end of Vail village and within walking distance to all of the village businesses. There is a free shuttle to the Lionshead gondola area. Also the buses are free around the area.

We had a one bedroom, two bath unit with a fireplace, balcony, and internet. The pool was in the 90s and the two hot tubs were hot. There is covered parking. Everything was in good condition and worked.

The staff was great and very helpful. We would definitely stay here again

The Wren is more than I had anticipated as it is just a little away from the center of town, but then you have peace and quiet, balconies facing the mountain, walking distance to the town and restaurants and a super shuttle service to the lift. Staff is very very considerate from General Manager, front desk to housekeeping. The Condos are very nice, clean and quiet.
Germans will feel at home as the General Manager speaks German and is extremely courteous and helpful.

The Wren in Vail in my opinion is the perfect place to be. I go up every summer in June and it's the only place that makes me feel...alive, you could say. The Wren is right in the middle of things, it's in walking distance of Vail Village, Lionshead, the gondola ride, miniature golf, the park, the flower garden, and the ampitheater. Not to mention the volleyball courts, heated pool, hot tubs, and pool/game room right inside the condo. The breathtaking views all around you are amazing and when you wake up in the morning all you hear is the flowing creek! It's the only place to be! I hope this helps anyone looking for a great summer vacation spot!
