Gravity Haus Vail—our second haus away from home—opened in December and is rapidly carving a name as the most coveted address in the valley.
Sitting at a powdery 8,150 feet in the Vail Village, the impeccably designed property features 22 mountain chic hotel rooms and seven elaborate condos, a recovery spa, Dryland Fitness, co-working space, and a new pasture-to-table restaurant and small-batch coffee haus.
A day-in-the-life look at your next elevated Vail experience:
Gravity Haus Vail is all about ease and access. Pull up to the stately stone building and intuitive staff will stow your skis and valet your car. Roll into the lobby and take in the tastefully on-point décor and sexy photography singing from the walls.
In your room—pup-friendly by request; ring the front desk for your dog bed and bowl—relax among the softest sink-in-and-exhale linens this side of the Mississippi. Newly outfitted with deep comfort and active mountain-loving guests in mind, rooms include gas fireplaces*, luxurious robes and plush cloud top beds.
Knock out a sweat session downstairs at Dryland Fitness & Spa. The state-of-the-art center is decked with Peloton bikes, a full cardio suite, comprehensive strength equipment, and yoga and fitness classes (book in advance). Shop the sweetly curated wellness boutique and zen out with access to indoor and outdoor hot tubs, a sauna, steam room and high-altitude spa treatment menu.
Treat yourself to a handcrafted cocktail and gourmet snack or wild-west-meets-glam dinner in the Slope Room, a modern mountain bistro where Rocky Mountain farmers and ranchers inspire greatness. Or nook up with a game or a book in the inviting lobby. Check the shelves in the lounge just past the front desk—page-turner titles span ski legends, Colorado artists and local lore.
After a stellar night’s rest, grab a sustainably and precisely brewed flat white or cold brew from Unravel Coffee and scootch into a plush navy blue booth with a complimentary newspaper. Walk the dog along the Gore Creek path behind the property or stroll nearby Betty Ford Alpine Gardens.
Take care of some calls and emails—enjoy complimentary wi-fi around the entire haus or co-working space (members’ only) in Slope Room 10 am–3 pm daily—before gearing up and walking over to the Golden Peak base area. It’s just a swift chair lift to long beautiful groomed runs and Vail’s legendary back bowls. Reserve a private snow cabana at the base for the day and dip in and out, lounging and indulging in food and bev service from the Larkspur restaurant.
