Step into the first-floor living area to find an open concept floor plan that at once promotes relaxation, inspires all, and brings everyone together. Plush chairs and sofas surround a large stone fireplace in the center, and a TV in the corner is in perfect view. High gabled ceilings overhead give the room a grand, cavernous feel, while the exposed wood and stone help it maintain its coziness. Huge windows let natural light pour in, and a door transports you to the balcony. There is also a powder room on the first floor, located just off from the main living area.
This area has a rich wood dining table that can seat up to eight guests, and a foosball table in the corner. All of this is spread out over a gorgeous hardwood floor that adds a lightness and brightness to the room.
The kitchen is fully equipped and beautifully designed, with fine wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances all around, including an oven, microwave, 4-burner gas stove, and dishwasher. A breakfast bar that runs between the dining area and kitchen has additional seating for three guests.
On the first floor, there is one guest bedroom, which features a queen-size bed and an attached ensuite bathroom. Upstairs you’ll find the Master Suite, as well as another guest bedroom with two twin beds, and a bunk room with two sets of bunks that each have a twin on top and full on the bottom. All of these rooms have their own attached ensuite bathrooms.
While the home is certainly stunning, the amenities you’ll enjoy through Settler’s Lodge are perhaps equally impressive. Start the day by walking over to Gunder’s Run and skiing down to the Bachelor Gulch Express Lift. For complete rejuvenation at the end of the day, head to the hot tubs or outdoor pool at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. All of this in a setting unparalleled in the Vail Valley that reminiscent of Europe’s most famous ski villages.
