Vail is Colorado‘s take on Bavaria. Alpenhaus-style architecture lines the village, and the well-trimmed culture of mountain living is on full display in the pubs, restaurants, and shops. There’s also the legendary ski resort itself, the largest in Colorado and the type of place even a seasoned skier or boarder could spend the entire season exploring and still not have seen it all. Vail is comprised of three villages — Vail Village, Lionshead Village, and East Vail. Here are top options to rent an Airbnb in Vail to capture that Bavarian magic for your next mountain holiday.

We hope you love the top Airbnb in Vail options we recommend! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay. Listed prices are accurate as of the time of publication. See our full Advertiser Disclosure here.

Lionshead Village is a ten-minute stroll (or a quick shuttle ride) west of the central village. Here you’ll find a cozy cluster of homes, condos, restaurants, and pubs that capture the true spirit of alpine living in a luxury setting. Take this villa. High ceilings with bay windows looking out upon the mountains will grab your attention immediately. The kitchen is designed for the chef of your group to prepare gourmet apres-ski meals and cocktails, which you’ll enjoy in the dining area or outside on the massive patio. The home has a private garage for parking and we recommend being the first in your party to arrive (that way you can choose between a village view or mountain view bedroom).
