Lionshead Vail

Luxury Vacation Rentals in Lionshead Vail

Anchored at the base of Lionshead Vail, the most westerly area of the resort, are the renowned Arrabelle Complex and The Lionshead Lodge Vail. The Arrabelle apartments offer some of the best ski in ski out rental options of all Vail Lionshead condos, being located immediately across from the Eagle Bahn gondola. To make the ski experience even more accessible and indulgent, the ski valet service is available at the entrance to the gondola.

Lionshead Village Experience

The Eagle Bahn Gondola provides access to Vail mountain, including Adventure Ridge and Eagle’s Nest. Adventure Ridge is entertainment for all the family including non-skiers. Take the scenic gondola ride up to the fun zone and then try out the tubing or snow biking or the mountain coaster. There are some age and height restrictions, so be sure to check these out to avoid disappointment. For those who just want to watch, there are some great Lionshead Vail restaurants, including Bistro Fourteen which features a full bar as well as casual American dining for lunch and dinner. Enjoy a glass of bubbly while you survey the impressive expanse of the Mount of the Holy Cross.

Ski School has an operation at the base of the Eagle Bahn gondola, making Lionshead a convenient family location.

Lionshead is minutes away from Vail Village using the complimentary Town of Vail bus that operates year round from early morning till well into the night. In the summer, we highly recommend walking the half-mile or so biking path along Gore Creek so you can savor the dappled light and charming views of the creek. Your doggy companions will love dipping in and out of the water in search of canine adventure.

At 10,500 ft. above Lionshead is the Game Creek Chalet. This 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom residence is accessed in winter via the Snow cat. Guests enjoy facilities like the Arrabelle concierge, the spas of Vail as well as the fitness center and pools. Peace, seclusion, extraordinary mountain views and the best ski in ski out access, define this unique rental option.

In terms of things to do in Lionshead Vail, there are two main ice rinks: The Dobson Ice Arena which is in-doors and the best location to watch local ice hockey games or to get in some ice-skating lessons; The Alderhof Ice Rink part of the Arrabelle plaza. Alderhof is open during the winter season and equipment can be rented if you haven’t brought your own ice skates. In the evenings Alderhof becomes magical with colorful fairy lights.

What our happy clients have to say:

Very clean and spacious property. Bedrooms were just right for us. My parents don’t ski and enjoyed sitting in front of the fire watching it snow and skiers go by. Will be back to this property.

Staying at Arrowhead was great and we enjoyed the condo. It was a short walk to the lift which made this accommodation great for a group that started and ended the ski day at various times.
