We love the variety of friends who make the Antlers their home while here in Vail. As the official pet-friendly hotel of the Go Pro Mountain Games, we enjoyed many furry friends visiting over the weekend. Those furry friends included a skateboarding bulldog and competitors in the 2013 Dock Dogs competition at the GoPro Mountain Games. Most of those friends have checked out now, and our friends at the Colorado Children’s Chorale have checked in. Our condo arrangements (from studios to four-bedroom condos, all with full kitchens) make us an ideal home for families, or anyone coming for an extended stay.

The Colorado Children’s Chorale is at the Antlers for their annual visit.  They are in town for a workshop designed to develop performance skills such as singing, dancing, acting and stage movement. Professional conductors and Chorale members work with attendees to share music and theater skills plus elements of teamwork and self confidence. The workshop concludes with a performance, Voices in the Valley, featuring workshop participants on stage with the Colorado Children’s Chorale at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater on Friday, June 14 at 7:00 p.m.

Here’s a taste of all the fun we’re looking forward to at the Antlers at Vail Condominiums and Conference Center this week in a video of the Colorado Children’s Chorale Rehearsing in the Antlers at Vail Courtyard in 2010.

Family Reunion at the Antlers at Vail Hotel

As a PR associate who often writes about the Antlers at Vail’s family-friendly amenities, it was a special pleasure to enjoy four days at the Antlers with my extended family for a mini-reunion last week. More than anything, we really enjoyed having a spacious condominium where we could be together comfortably and spend some quality time together. Our visit inspired me to compile our family’s Top Ten list of all the things that were great about being here:

1. Plenty of room for everyone, and a great value

2. Cooling off in the beautiful swimming pool

3. The Antlers friendly staff, who made us feel so welcome

4. A free jazz concert Thursday night, just across the street

5. Close proximity to the free Vail shuttle, which made it so easy to people of all ages to get around

6. A full kitchen and large dining table, which allowed us to cook and enjoy some memorable family meals together

7. Cool, creamy gelato from nearby Rimini

8. The nice, shady walking and biking path along Gore Creek

9. Being able to bring along our dog, Maddie, who considers herself part of the family

10. Red foam antlers for all!

If you want to plan an unforgettable family reunion in beautiful Vail, keep the Antlers in mind. Our family is already talking about a return trip.

Muffin one of our most loyal guests visited us again this March and as always it was a joy having her around. She never shies away from getting dressed up for any occasion, and always makes sure to stop by the front desk to show off her outfit of the day. We look forward to seeing her again along with the Bensingers, her gracious owners!

Tails and Trails: Dog-Friendly Vail Autumn Hikes and Lodging

Antlers at Vail Offers Value, Autumn Adventures for Canines & Companions

Vail, Colorado – May 10, 2010 – Kenneling the family dog during a vacation can be ruff — er, rough on everyone. That’s why the Antlers at Vail hotel has licked the dilemma by welcoming four-legged guests and stocking a bottomless bowl of dog biscuits in the front lobby to help canines feel at home the minute they arrive. “We recognize that many people consider their dogs to be full-fledged members of the family,” says general manager Rob LeVine, owner of Magpie, a 15-year-old dog of ‘mixed’ descent.  “We offer dedicated rooms just for pet owners, and our staff is always happy to recommend canine-friendly activities in the area.”      

Many families travel to Vail in the autumn, when the Rocky Mountains are blanketed in gold as the region’s famous aspen trees change color.  There are a number of spectacular areas in and around the Vail Valley to view the glorious foliage, including plenty of pet-friendly hiking trails.  Ania Savage, author of “Best Hikes with Dogs: Colorado” recommends a trek to nearby Wheeler Lakes as a scenic half-day hike for families and canines. “The meadow and the lakes offer a lovely spot for some dog frolicking and a picnic lunch,” she says.  For a day hike, Savage suggests Pitkin Lake as a “strenuous-yet-satisfying hike because of the continuous presence of clear, gurgling Pitkin Creek, the shaded trail, and meadows where there is plenty of room to romp and roll among the summer grasses and wildflowers.”  The Antlers at Vail staff can provide guests with additional information and directions to both trailheads.       

The Antlers offers special savings of 25% off on autumn lodging from September 7 through November 17, 2010, with rates for a one-bedroom pet-friendly suite starting at just $210 per night.  Autumn is a wonderful time to experience the Vail Valley; summer crowds are gone, the days are sunny, the evenings are cool — and the values can’t be beat. Along with the stunning scenery, Vail has numerous autumn festivals and events including the always-popular Oktoberfest (Sept.10-12 and 17-19, 2010) and new this year, Vail Restaurant Month (Sept. 20 – Oct. 17, 2010).

Since 1972, the Antlers has offered a unique Vail lodging experience in a relaxed mountain setting. Recently named the ‘Green Business of the Year’ by the Vail Valley Partnership Success Awards, the Antlers Vail condominiums is also proud to be a Green Star-rated business. With condominiums ranging from studio suites up to four bedrooms and plenty of space to spread out, each room at the Antlers offers all the comforts of home including fully-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, outdoor balconies, free Internet access and free parking in a heated indoor garage. The Antlers Vail is conveniently located in the Lionshead area of Vail with numerous restaurants, galleries and shops within walking distance, and the free Vail town shuttle stops just footsteps away.
