Antlers at Vail 1-Bedroom Residence: Featured Homeowner
Remodeled spring of 2015 to become a platinum-rated condominium
Mel Timmermann and his wife Catherine were original Antlers at Vail hotel owners. A salt-of-the-earth John Deere tractor dealer from Litchfied, Illinois, Mel was a favorite of the staff. He always went out of his way to make sure everyone knew they were appreciated, particularly housekeeping. Sadly he passed away a number of years ago, but his children continue his legacy at the Antlers. This spring one of his daughters, Kathy Caloia, directed a significant remodel to the family’s 1-bedroom residence that included reconfiguring the bedroom for a larger king bed by adding a new wall and French doors, replacing the old fireplace with new stone surround, installing a beautiful wood floor in the living and kitchen areas accented by wood ceiling beams. New lighting throughout and elegant new furniture completed the design. The Antlers at Vail is proud to add this 1-bedroom residence to our ever growing list of platinum-rated condominiums.
Why did you and your siblings choose to keep the family’s vacation home at the Antlers?
We created many wonderful family memories over the years making the Antlers a special place for all of us. My father frequently said that he hoped the condominium would stay in the family for generations. Last summer the 4th generation of our family made her first trip to the Antlers. We are very grateful to our parents for having the foresight to provide this wonderful vacation home.
What is special about your newly remodeled Antlers vacation home?
The newly configured large king bedroom is a real plus. The newly configured bedroom, along with the attention to detail that went into the living space creates a warm, comfortable updated space for our guests to enjoy.
