Several reviews and friends told us this was the best kept secret in Vail-we mostly agree, except about the secret part. Booking wasn't too bad for Jan ski season, but the lodge is often booked solid from September by regulars. Rates were not supercheap, but are still excellent for ski season in Vail village close to lifts. The room was spacious, clean, with a great view. With one exception, the staff was friendly and helpful. Their were many regular guests who knew each other well, but made new friends fairly easily. The inviting common area provided free daily NY Times and WSJ, as well as breakfasts (not great, especially the coffee, but good pastries, cereal and bananas), and soup and cider (or tea from a good selection or spice wine) in the afternoon. Only minor problems: the free internet had a very low unreliable signal for our entire stay, but VailWifi was fine for $30/month; our room was always too warm even with the thermostat at the lowest setting, but opening the door to the balcony worked well. We will likely return if we don't try Lionshead next time.
