Located at the eastern end of Vail Village and just west of the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens and Ford Amphitheater, The Wren provides very spacious rooms that are tastefully and comfortably furnished. A short walk will take you into the "action" in the Village or to Gondola One on which you can quickly ascend to high hiking trails, The Tenth, and a wonderful view of the Gore Range. Take a longer walk to Eagle Bahn gondola and ride to the top where you'll have great views of the Mount of the Holy Cross (from the back side) and down the Vail Valley. Also at the top of Eagle Bahn is an adventure land, with varied levels of risk, that will excite the kid in everyone. The Wren is a quiet lodging in the midst of one of Colorado's most beautiful valleys. Hiking trails abound! Activities are many: fishing, swimming, shopping, dining, biking, winter skiing and snowshoeing, adventure activities for the kids, etc. In summer (our favorite season in Vail) the flowers are magnificent! Hummingbirds will visit you in large numbers (especially if you take your hummer feeder to attach to the railing of your unit). You'll really enjoy The Wren at Vail.

Room Tip: Rooms opening east will be cooler and overlook a well landscaped lawn with mature evergreens and aspens. Rooms opening south will have the "music" of Gore Creek, which they overlook, but may get a lot of afternoon sun. (We were on the east side, so I can't be sure.)

We've stayed at this condo for 30 years on an annual timeshare basis. It a great value and walking distance to the Vail Village and right next to the Gerald Ford Ampatheature and Betty Ford Alpine Gardens. The staff at The Wren always are friendly and helpful from the management, staff, maitainance, and housekeeping. You actually see every year where your improvement fees are spent. We wouldn't consider staying elsewhere!

Room Tip: We prefer the side of the building that faces Gore Creek.

When I booked our room, I made sure that the room was facing Vail Mountain as we've stayed in condos before in Vail where the noise from the interstate was very loud all day and night. I was assured that all of the "loft" rooms faced the mountain. That is true to a point -- the living area and deck did have a beautiful view of the mountain and Gore Creek but the bedroom was on the highway side of the condo. That said, we really didn't notice the noise that much while trying to sleep and it was wonderful sitting in the living room or on the deck and hearing the babbling brook with no traffic noise whatsoever. The unit itself was very clean and had just been remodeled and updated. My husband's extended family had a great time playing shuffleboard; the pool was wonderfully warm on a cool day. I appreciated that they were making a big attempt to encourage recycling. It is the perfect place to stay if you are attending Bravo Vail as it is a short walk to the Betty Ford Pavilion. The Wren is one of the more affordable condos in the Village; there is no need to spend any more to have a beautiful room right in the village!

Our experience at The Wren was excellent. We have been many places and stayed many places but only a couple including The Wren we can actually say the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful even before the office opened Stephen was so pleased to help us with our needs and didn't have us wait until the opening hours. They made us feel comfortable and we look forward on going back again. Kudos to the staff as The Wren it's people like you that make our vacation a pleasurable stay.

Thanks

Room Tip: Ask for the side that has the river/Mountain view it was spectacular!

My wife and I and our kids have been coming here for over 30 years. The Wren is a great place to stay no matter what size group and the location is perfect for walking to anyplace. We actually like to stay on the 4th floor overlooking the Gore River because the view is awesome! You have the large playground for little kids about 5 mins away and Vail Village is about a 10 minute walk. The condos are well kept, stylish and clean.

Room Tip: 4th floor overlooking the river. You are just above tree line so the views of the mountains are spectacular!
