Vail, Colorado has earned its place among the best mountain resorts in North America, if not the world. In the winter, its 5,000+ acres of skiable terrain, famous backcountry bowls, and a delightful ski village make it perfect for groups and families of all ages and abilities.
Come summer, the peaceful mountainside town is the perfect home base for the valley’s outdoor adventures, including world-class hiking, climbing, rafting, fishing, high ropes courses, and 4x4 trekking. Golf courses line the valley floor, resort spas and private pools become a place to relax under the bright Colorado sun, and restaurants open up their rooftops and patios to fully celebrate the season.
And whether you’re looking for a long-term rental during ski season or a seasonal rental for all of the summer, there are plenty to choose from with InvitedHome. Below we go over a few of the best neighborhoods for Vail long-term rentals, why our guests tend to choose one area over another, and list our luxury rental homes that are perfect for season-long stays. While rates will change from home to home, stays of 60 days or longer tend to come at reduced rates. For more information, give our Guest Experience Team a call at 855-978-7627.
These homes can of course also be used for short-term vacation rentals pending availability. We've listed these homes because our long-term guests have noted them to be particularly well suited for such a stay.
Beaver Creek is far more than just a “neighborhood of Vail” as many people believe. Located about 15 minutes farther west on I-70 near the town of Avon, Beaver Creek is a luxurious mountainside community with a 24-hour staffed arched stone entrance. In the winter, its snow grooming operations are regarded as the best in the country, and the ski village is renowned for its family-friendly activities and amenities. In the summer, the large, luxurious houses make for the perfect place to spend the season tucked away amid the trees.
Our guests have raved about their long-term stays in Beaver Creek, and the following homes have garnered especially impressive praise:

If you want to combine a quiet, secluded stay with unrivaled luxury, take a look at the neighborhood of Cordillera, near Beaver Creek. Cordillera spreads out across 7,000 acres of beautiful mountains and rolling hills, and is set at the edge of 1 million acres of untouched White River National Forest.
It’s an idyllic spot for a long-term Vail rental, but not just for the privacy it offers and beauty that surrounds it. Located in the neighborhood are two recreational centers, a skating rink, a 10-hole golf course, and stocked fishing ponds. Crisscrossing their way through all 7,000 acres are perfect trails for hiking, biking, and snowshoeing, some of which are even private and come with your stay.
Check out two of our treasured Cordillera long-term rentals below.
This Cordillera estate was built with authentic Tuscan stone to create an exceptionally accurate Italian villa, right here in the Vail Valley. This family homestead sits on 220 acres of beautiful mountain terrain, and miles of private walking paths and trails crisscross throughout the property. If you're staying for the winter, sledding, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling are all right outside your door.
A caretaker lives in a separate building at the edge of the property to ensure the grounds are always maintained and the road is always plowed. To see more photos of Il Podere and learn more about booking a long-term stay, click here. Or give us a call at 855-978-7627.

Once its own resort that catered to beginner and intermediate skiers, Arrowhead has since joined up with Beaver Creek, with lifts connecting the two mountains. However, many of our guests have told us Arrowhead offers something slightly different than Beaver Creek: It’s a little quieter, a little more relaxed, and for long-term rentals, can be a little more affordable. It’s also near the town of Edwards, Colorado, which has plenty of restaurants, shops and nightlife.
For many, ski-in, ski-out access means a slopeside condo. That's certainly not the case at Cresta Mountain Lodge.

When you want to truly experience a full season in Vail (whether that’s a summer-long rental or a winter seasonal rental in the valley), your best bet may be to stay on Vail Mountain itself. These homes are masterfully crafted to please even the most discerning guest, and although you’d never know it because of their seclusion and privacy, are still near the action of Vail Village. Seasonal rentals in this area can book up well over a year in advance, so availability can sometimes be limited.
