About Sharon & Rick

I was born and raised in a suburb of Charlotte, NC and was living in Wilmington, NC when I was invited to a girls weekend get-away to Vail in 1993. I met my husband Rick in the Red Lion the first day of that trip (blissful ever since!). Rick was living in Wisconsin at the time, so we dated long-distance for a year and a half. The following year he proposed to me at the top of the Mountain Top Express lift (4) overlooking Sun Up Bowl, China Bowl, and Blue Sky Basin with a photographer in-tow. I said 'yes' and moved to the Midwest to start our new life together (I'm still not certain that leaving a coastal community for the Midwest was the best idea :-). Needless to say, Vail is truly a magical place for us. Our family escapes our day jobs for Vail as often as we can.

Owning a place in Vail was a dream of ours since the day we met. Now that we have a place to call our own, we are happy to share our Vail home with you to make your own memories. We currently live in a Minneapolis suburb where Rick is an executive with an employee benefits administration firm and I am the director of a large preschool.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We hope that you enjoy our place as much as we do and we welcome you back on your next visit to the Vail Valley.

Why Sharon & Rick chose Vail

Lion Square Lodge is so close to all that Vail has to offer. The ski-in/ski-out convenience and Lionshead Village steps from the door makes this the perfect place to be, winter or summer. Lion Square Lodge has so many amenities which makes staying here incredibly easy and convenient. Unlike several ski-in/ski-out places, Lion Square Lodge North Residences are very quiet during the evenings which makes it the perfect place for families and couples looking for a romantic get-away.

Awesome place

Have stayed all over Vail and loved this place. Very very easy to get to lift line. Perfect location for access to everything in Lionshead. Beds are very comfortable and the unit is impeccably clean. Rick and Sharon were highly responsive, from initial booking to departure. You will not be disappointed!!!

Perfect property and stay

  • 5 of 5

This home away from home is beautifully decorated, perfectly located (literally ski in, ski out of the condo), and greatly appointed! And the owners are available to hear any needs or questions. You can't go wrong with this unit!

Family ski trip

Great property and location. Condo perfect for our family of 5. Very well maintained. Owners proavtively manage it and very responsive if any issues arise. Excellent pool, hot tub, and work out facilities and literally steps to gondola, ice skating, and market. I would absolutely stay here again.

Great location and wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

This condominium is very conveniently located for the gondola and walking around town. There is even a ski rental shop in the front of the building. Three of us stayed there with one person sleeping in the comfortable Murphy bed. You can't walk around the living/dining area when the Murphy bed is down. We didn't use the sofa bed and I wouldn't want to try because the large coffee table would have to be moved and I'm not sure where it could go. The owners were incredibly helpful and easy to contact. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review JoAnn! We're glad that you had a nice time at our place. BTW, the coffee table is moved in front of the fireplace when using the queen sofa bed. It has easy slide feet on it which makes it easy to move. Thanks for choosing to stay at our place. Come back and see us again!

Excellent stay, everything surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Lions Square Lodge North 286 was absolutely the best stay we have had ever in Vail and we have been coming here for 20 years! From our first email exchange with Rick, he is very responsive, to the overview of what to expect during our stay in his home, to walking in the front door - everything went so smoothly! The pictures are exactly what you will see when you enter Rick and Sharon's beautiful well decorated home. There's more than enough room to put away all your ski clothes in the closets and dressers. The kitchen is fully equipped to cook, but why when you are so conveniently located in the heart of Lionshead and only a short bus ride away from Vail Village. The living room furniture is so comfortable to relax and catch up on after a day of skiing Vail's epic mountain! We loved the courtesy car to the grocery store as needed during our stay! We so enjoyed our stay here in every way and will be returning for sure next year! If you are lucky enough to book this home for your Vail stay you will not be disappointed!
