Vail Valley Mountain Retreat in Colorado

The Vail Valley Mountain retreat features rustic spaces where you can relax while also enjoying the mountain view.

Deck and Home Exterior With Open Wall

On the back side of the Pony Up ranch house in Edwards, Colorado, the side wall of the ground floor disappears to seamlessly connect the space to the adjoining terrace and deck.

Study Room With Reading Nooks and Tables

A large bookcase holds a plethora of books in this study room. Two wooden tables can be used as reading or workspaces.

Neutral Rustic Living Room With Window Wall

Floor-to-ceiling windows all along the side wall of this spacious living room look out onto the Vail, Colorado valley and mountains. Sofas placed back to back divide the space and help create two separate seating areas.

Neutral Rustic Living Room With Log Wallpaper

The rustic style of this living room gets a dose of contemporary whimsy with wallpaper depicting a log pile and fabric featuring squirrels perched on tree branches. And is that a gold pendant light hanging in the corner...or a pinecone?

Multicolored Eclectic Bedroom With Red Cabinet

Sometimes graphic wallpaper makes the biggest splash on the ceiling! In this imaginative bedroom, layers of color, pattern and texture create a dynamic display.

Bathroom Sink and Vanity With Brown Tile Backsplash

Richly detailed brown tiles decorate the backsplash of this sink picking up the similar hues in the wood vanity and sink. On the counter, silver dispensers elegantly finish off the scene.

Red and Blue Country Tent and Deck

The kids may not come inside all summer when you show them this delicious deck covered by an oversized tent. Twin beds paired with rustic nightstands will keep sleepyheads cozy while rugs, armchairs, benches and coffee tables provide every comfort to occupants when awake.

Rustic Covered Patio Overlooking Stream

A wooden patio is covered and protected from the elements. Rocking chairs adorn the space overlooking a water stream.

Ranch Exterior and Outdoor Spaces at Night

At night, exterior and landscape lighting give a welcoming glow to this ranch home's expansive, multi-tiered outdoor spaces. The mountains and trees are beautifully silhouetted in the background.
