We enjoy spending family time in Vail and sharing our home with guests from all over the world.

Why Ralph Yarusso chose Vail

It's the perfect getaway for family and friends. It's private yet very close to all of the excitement that Vail has to offer. A free shuttle makes is simple to go into the village and back and our yard is perfect for summer activities. We love our mountain home and we love to share it with others. We consider our guests liken family and hope to make their visit special in every way.

What makes this chalet unique

Peace and quiet and yet just a few minutes from the exciting village of Vail. Star gazing in our hot tub is something you will never forget. All of the amenities you need are here for a terrific and comfortable vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Better Than Ever!!!

I recently stayed at the Vail Ski Chalet for the third year in a row, and I must say, the owners did an excellent job with upgrades. First, the completely remodeled kitchen added all new appliances and granite, along with new cabinets. They even upgraded the washer and dryer room with new cabinets and new HE appliances. New this year as well was the 55 inch flat HD tv over the fireplace with surround sound! I still enjoyed the outside jacuzzi and upstairs master sauna steam shower, but loved the openness of the upgraded main floor. Looking forward to next year already!

Great character- upgrades where needed and well stocked to accommodate all our incidental needs.

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the home, distance from the village and public transportation! Thanks for making a great ski week! The two snow falls you ordered for us was a big bonus!

Great comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed for a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with our family. The owner is very accommodating and communicated with us to make sure we had arrived and even had a bottle of wine waiting for us. Awesome hot tub and wrap around deck. Steam shower in master bedroom is an added bonus. Close to bus stop which is one and a half blocks away that takes you right to Vail Village. New kitchen with everything needed to prepare meals. A park is within walking distance and even has an off leash dog area. A nice neighborhood for walking. Plenty of parking in the driveway. It is also nice we were able to take our dog with us too. Thanks for a great stay!

Great property for a large group

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends had a great experience at this home. There were 3 total families and there was plenty of room for everyone. It had a great common area and we really enjoyed the fantastic updated kitchen. Further, Ralph was extremely responsive. There was a minor problem with the hot tub that Ralph helped us fix almost immediately.

There are only 2 minor negatives that I have with the property (note - neither of which stopped me from giving 5 stars). 1) The master bath is a little outdated (the rest of the bathrooms are updated and great). 2) The week we went it was very cold outside (-10 degrees in the morning). Because the living room has so many windows, the main floor often got very cold in the morning and in the evenings. It wasn't until we started a fire that the ground floor really warmed up.

Great first family ski trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. It really is in a great location. One block to the bus stop , 20 minutes to the slopes. The wood burning stove us a perfect start to the morning. Hard to beat a warm fire and hot coffee.

Only two hangups were, 1 the hot tub wasn't work when we first got there, but a phone call to the owner and he had it fixed within a couple hours. The only other thing I would say is be careful on the indoor stairs. They are a little bit slick. Especially the bottom couple steps. Most people from our group slipped there.

Meals were super easy. Very well prepared kitchen. Beds were super comfy. Plenty of room for 8 adults and 3 kids. Overall, we had a fantastic time and will most likely be returning to see the Yarusso Chalet again!! Highly recommended place for anyone headed to vail!
