In 1976 Dr. Brooks Newbill, along with two partners, purchased a condo at the Antlers. Last year Dr. Newbill bought out his remaining partner, giving him the freedom to accomplish what has been the largest gain ever in lodging quality assurance score at the Antlers, from the lowest rated condo to the highest. The remodel of his condo began with a complete gutting of the unit to replace everything with platinum quality finishes and furnishings. These finishes included cambria quartz countertops, Whirlpool stainless steel appliances, LED lighting throughout, smart TVs, a new fireplace and even an unexpected surprise for guests of under tile heat in both the kitchen and bathroom. His is also the only studio condo at the Antlers to feature a double vanity in the bathroom.
Q&A with Dr. Newbill
What motivated you to make the Antlers at Vail your vacation home in Vail?
My partners and I had stayed at the Antlers, and other Vail area lodges, a number of times prior to our purchase. We not only recognized that the Antlers had the obvious benefit of a perfect location, but it was the staff and their dedication to the guests that was the deciding factor for us. I often talk to guests at the pool area and do a little survey about their stay. Their almost universal response is that the staff is great and sees to their every need. Most everyone says they love the Antlers and would certainly return in the future.
What is special about your Antlers vacation home?
My family has found our vacation home to be special because it is in the Antlers and the Antlers is in Vail, Colorado. As the ad says, “Like nothing on Earth.” My survey of guests from all over the world has found that the consensus is that Vail mountain has the best skiing anywhere. And, the summers are even better!
We look forward to sharing our totally renovated home with our family and our Antlers guest and have to thank everyone associated with our project for their help and dedication in creating our beautiful new home.
