My family has been coming here for generations. I've purchased a 1 bedroom 2 bath that fits my family of 2 adults, 3 children and 1 baby just fine. The views are great, the service is fast and friendly. The walk to Vail Village is short and well paved with a sidewalk that follows the river. The pool is always...

We are very pleased you are enjoying your condominium. The trail behind The Wren is a nice trail and, yes a very short hike to the Town of Vail. Thank you for your comments on our Green initiative program, we are very proud of our success there.

We went to Vail for the first time in October. We flew into Denver, drove over the mountain, and got in late. We woke up to a winter wonderland and a few inches of snow. The Wren was in a decent spot because I had been warned that parking in Vail was difficult. It was still cold, especially at night,...

This little property is very conveniently located. Walking distance to city center (7 min walk in the woods), close to ski lifts (10 min walk). But also has a shuttle that takes you there or back every 30 minutes.Very well appointed apartments, for such a convenient price.

My family and I visited Vail last month. A friend of mine subleted his week at The Wren to us. We are a family of 5, so at first I thought that having only 1 bathroom wouldn´t be enough for all of us. Well, I was wrong. The Wren has spacious apartments (also an spacious bathroom), and the one we...

The rooms are proper sized for a ski vacation . Units have a nice workable kitchen and gas fireplace. Outdoor pool and hot tubs are a plus. Shuttle is available and the location is a very easy walk to Vail Village. We have been returning to the Wren for 6 years.....

We rented a unit with one bed and a sleeper sofa. Pros: easy walk to Vail Village. Shuttle is convenient. Kitchen and bathroom remodeled recently. The 2 Jacuzzi and heated pool outside are a plus.

Just got back from a weeks stay at The Wren. We have stayed here before and was pleasantly surprised that they have updated the units. It snowed heavily the day we arrived and the staff was doing their best to keep up with the snow and ice. I know a lot of people prefer the rooms that face Gore Creek...

We love the quality of the Wren. It's staff is well trained and it offers excellent views and ambiance. Walking trails connect the condo with stores and restaurants throughout the Vail Valley and we hardly need to use our car. Parking is excellent, and free bus service is down the street.

So this is the cheapest place in vail that is filled with time share people from Texas that are thrilled to be there. Every unit is different, some are nice to ok, and some are dumpy with an homage to the 80s with frayed carpet and nails that stick out of the carpet.
