East Vail, Colorado is a Rocky Mountain Eden, and the Vail Racquet Club Mountain Resort is the best spot to access everything this paradise has to offer. Between the dramatic mountain peaks, plummeting waterfalls, and sparkling creek, once you experience the Racquet Club—and East Vail—you’ll never want to leave.
East Vail is at the tips of your fingers and toes when you stay in one of their 1-3 bedroom condos, affording you immediate access to miles of trails for hiking and biking in the summer and snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the winter. They’re also on the Town of Vail’s free shuttle route, putting the rest of Vail—skiing or golf anyone?—within close reach too.
Fitness Center, Tennis Courts, and More! Of course you don’t have to leave the resort at all in order to enjoy a full day of relaxing and recreating. When you book your stay through the Vail Racquet Club you receive full access to their fitness facilities, pool, hot tubs, sauna, and more.
You can start your day off with a Yoga, Pilates, or spin class or go it alone with a workout in their 2,800 square foot fitness center. If tennis is your game, then get in on it on one of their 10 outdoor courts (including 3 clay courts). They offer equipment rentals, lessons, and clinics that will help you knock your game out of the mountains!
Wrap things up with a massage in their spa, a soak in one of their two hot tubs (one is adults-only), or by relaxing next to their 25-meter heated pool. You won’t get better poolside views anywhere else.
Not Just for Guests Pssst, Vail locals! Did you know you can take advantage of the Racquet Club too? The Vail Racquet Club really is one of Vail’s best-kept secrets. They offer monthly and daily memberships to their fitness center, which includes access to all of their fitness classes, access to the pool, hot tubs, and sauna and steam rooms, discounts on massages, and free parking.
Members also get discounted rates on lodging so your parents, friends, and friends’ friends don’t have to sleep on your couch when they’re in town.
Weddings and Events Here’s a secret that the locals are in on, the Vail Racquet Club is the best, most affordable, place in town for weddings. They can take care of the whole day for you, from lodging for your quests to a scenic spot for the ceremony to a reception they won’t forget, or, let them handle just one aspect of the day if you prefer.
And, on your big day, it really is all about you at the Racquet Club because they have a policy of one wedding—one bride—per day.
They also provide the perfect destination for other events, including corporate retreats. This September 11-15 they’re hosting the Women’s Empowerment Workshop, an all-inclusive event for women and girls.
Free to Roam Your dilemma: you want to read another chapter by the pool (or in the grass down by the creek) but the kids are restless and want to wander around and explore a little. The solution: go ahead and let them roam!
The Vail Racquet Club sits on over 20 acres, with a large park and playground area at its heart. It’s private, protected, and safe for the kids to run around while you relax. They’ll feel like they’re playing in the very best backyard in the world.
NEW! Dine at Blu’s The long-time Vail Village institution, and local’s favorite, Blu’s has found a new home at the Racquet Club. They’re serving dinner starting at 5:00 every night and breakfast on weekends.
