Special to the Vail DailyThe Vail Mountain School's tour of these luxurious homes in Vail raises money for scholarships

VAIL, Colorado – Six Vail, Colorado homes will be featured in this year’s 38th annual Vail Mountain School home tour.

The tour, which funds the East Vail private school’s scholarships, is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 13. Along with touring the homes, guests will have lunch by Larkspur restaurant at the school.

Here are the school’s descriptions of the six homes:

• 1163 Cabin Circle: Located on a quiet cul de sac in East Vail, is deceptively understated from the road. But inside, the 5,800 square foot home has five bedrooms on six different levels. Outside, there are seven outdoor patios, a hot tub, fire pit, built-in grill, and a “sunken” trampoline. Originally referred to as “The Tree House,” it was built around a great lodgepole pine.

• 400 East Meadow Drive: For 30 years the location of the former Tyrolean Restaurant. An extensive renovation resulted in a blend of European and American styles. This home preserves the history and demeanor of The Tyrolean by remaining warm and welcoming.

• 1175 Vail Valley Drive: The outdoor landscaping provides privacy while outside, and from within, there is a feeling of being nestled among the wilderness of forest despite being steps from the heart of Vail Village.

• Residences at Vail Mountain View: Two unique residences are featured side-by-side on this year’s Home Tour. One home is decorated in a French Country style, with colorful print fabrics and toile wallpaper, lending a warm and casual feel. The next home is quite different with unique furnishings and artwork imported from around the world.

• 1119 Ptarmigan Road: Built with a blend of quartzite rock, Colorado sandstone and exposed timber, this exclusive address in Vail actually consists of two separate structures. The main house, built in 1993, and a guesthouse, completed in 1997, are separated by a landscaped outdoor living space with two built-in grills, a hot tub and a swimming pool with a diving board and a slide. Artwork includes Josef Hoflehner photos and a Marc Chagal painting.

Guests of the tour are asked to park at the Vail Transportation Center, where they can purchase tickets and board free transportation to the homes and lunch at the school. Tickets for the Tour are $45 in advance, $50 on the day of the Tour. For information, visit or call 970-477-7177.
