My parents discovered Manor Vail forty years ago and we visit each summer. We now come with our children and ten and seven year old grandchildren. Last year, the now ten year old said "Could we please stay three nights instead of two." We did and all loved it. We cook our lunches and dinners, and eat in the lovely dining room or patio of our well-decorated rental condo. For breakfast, we purchase Manor Vail's fine buffet. Manor Vail is fantastically well located as it adjoins next two tennis courts, no charge. The children enjoy the swimming pool and hot tub. Manor Vail is a five minute beautiful walk to a great playground, Betty Ford Gardens, small science museum and event center. The free bus stops outside Manor Vail and takes us to the charming village of Vail or Eagle Vail. The staff is friendly and all is well maintained with huge pots of flowers. It is a visual treat / This is a perfect family vacation.
